PUPILS at St Phillip's CE Primary School in Atherton enjoyed a European extravaganza.

The cultured pupils kicked off their all things Europe week by celebrating a day of languages.

From reception up to year six, pupils studied, London, Scotland, France, Germany, Italy, Greece and Poland.

Jonathan Hancock, reception teacher and languages co-ordinator, said: “The pupils have all loved it so much so that the year fives have actually asked if they can continue to learn Italian. They’ve all really enjoyed learning the different languages and after they had studied their countries we had an assembly where they all talked about what they had learnt.

“It is the first time we have done this but we are thinking of making it an annual event because the staff have found that the pupils have really enjoyed learning about the different countries.”

Tomorrow the students will also be celebrating the birthday of renowned author Roald Dahl and will be dressing up alongside staff as their favourite character from one of his books.
