Vicki Jordan was successful in securing funding from RiPL to fund for an online subscription to the Language Gym for some of the  mixed aged KS2 classes in other schools across the Trust. Pupils have been completing weekly online games to practise language learnt in lessons. Vicki has been supported with her research project, by Bernadette Holmes MBE, bye-fellow of the University of Cambridge and DfE advisor for the upcoming reforms in GCSEs for MFL.
