"New Language Competitions"

Along with the RZSS 'Science in the Language Class' series, we have launched new language competitions. All are based on a fantastic activity which covers many curriculum objectives all starting with just one postage stamp. Tell the story of a Spanish, French, Chinese or in fact any country/language stamp. Examples and full details provided. Although examples are given for upper primary/secondary level, any child can take part by creating a page around a stamp with simple drawings and text. There is no time limit for entries as the competition will continue to run each year and be entered into the appropriate ASPS Annual Congress. Entrants can enter more than one language competition.
