The Key Stage 3 competition was open to students in Years 7 to 9 and they were asked to design a card which showcased the Christmas traditions of France or any other country of interest. 

The brief included students researching their country of choice and designing a card using a variety of materials, including pen, paint or fabric.  All entries had to be submitted in French or the native language of the country featured.

Miss Bailey, Leader of Modern Foreign Languages, said:

“We judged the designs alongside the Art department and picked our winners based on originality of illustration as well as accuracy of language and content. 

“We were very impressed with the quality of the entries and the creativity that our students displayed!”

All entries will receive achievement points.  In addition, the winning Wellacre entries and the runners up will be entered into a national MFL Christmas Card competition run by Routes into Languages based at Aston University in Birmingham.
