Japanese Language Program
Language lessons at Sandy Creek Primary school connect with whole school learning themes and connections with Japan. Our older students regularly interact with their peers in our Japanese sister school through video calls and the Flip platform. Technologies aid our language learning significantly and build engagement.
Classes regularly interact with each other through Quizizz, Gimkit and Blooket. We have even participated in small live competitions and games with other schools in the Barossa during lessons. Traditional methods of learning are still highly valued alongside this, with students working at their own pace to master the different scripts of Japanese.
In 2019, we were the lucky recipients of an Innovative Language Program grant from the South Australian Department for Education.
As part of the research process, we developed a teaching and learning method using the Seesaw platform as a basis for sharing our ‘broadcasts’.
