Education researchers, teachers, and practitioners are invited to attend the presentation of a report into the Hackney Spanish as the First Language Initiative on Thursday 18 March 4.30 - 5.30pm (GMT/London time), on zoom.
The research was carried out throughout 2020 as part of the AHRC-funded Language Acts and Worldmaking project by researchers from Kings College London, The Open University and Westminster University.
It aimed to evaluate the impact on:
- Pupils learning Spanish at primary level
- Level of success of secondary teachers in building on prior learning
- Transition arrangements
A further planned outcome was to contribute to the national debate on language learning and to suggest one possible model.
The presentations will be made by Dr Ana Maria Sousa Aguiar de Medeiros and Ms Cathy Baldwin who are part of the Language Acts and Worldmaking project team and will be followed by discussion.
To attend, please RSVP to bernadette [dot] clinton [at] hackney [dot] gov [dot] uk by 5pm Monday 15 March.
