Year 7 'Hanley Vision' Project 2018

Hanley Vision' is a year 7 international activity that is firmly embedded into the schools curriculum and culture. The competition is eagerly awaited each year by staff and older students who participated when they were in year 7. Hanley Vision is a foreign language song competition that, in 2019, involved a performance of a French or Spanish song in that language by each year 7 class. The launch of Hanley Vision is timed to coincide with the European Day of Languages. Hanley Vision involves the following:
• students are taught phonic and sound spelling links in their normal French and
• Spanish lessons
• students listen to and learn the lyrics to a song in class, in in either French or Spanish, and apply the phonics they have learned
• students practice performing the song as a group and video their performance each video is shown in a year 7 and 8 assembly and then shown individually by year 7, 8 and 9 tutors during their tutor sessions
• all year 7, 8 and 9 students vote on the best performance
• the video are used during the school's Open Evening and are shown to our new year 6 students on their transition day
