Last night saw the virtual prize-giving event take place for the Oxford German Olympiad 2020, during which the judges recognised the achievement of our Form 5 pupils James, George, Aashish, Lottie and Abi who had been selected as runners up in their category.
Our pupils had entered the Open Competition for groups, the theme of which was “Ein Roboter in der Schuler” and they were tasked with creating a video or song about a robot designed for helping with practical tasks in their School.
Head of German Mrs Phillipa Sykes said, “The judges were very impressed with their entry. Their video was put together well and their German was of high quality. I am very proud of them.”
German at Oakham School is taught in a dynamic and engaging way and while pair work, group work, and teacher-led activities are the mainstay of languages classes, lesson styles and resources are diverse.
