FAMOUS IN THIS FIELD
A pilot, Marie Marvingt was instrumental in the creation of aeromedical evacuations. Her first attempt to create an air ambulance in 1909 was thwarted, but she didn’t give up. She promoted them for 30 years and helped organize the First International Congress on Medical Aviation. Once airplane ambulances were in use, Marvingt established the first medical air service in Morocco, and became the first certified Flight Nurse. Her work inspired hundreds of women to become pilots for L’Aviation Sanitaire, a group of air ambulances. (Bonus: In 1915, she became the first woman in the world to fly combat missions when she flew bombing missions over German-held territory as a volunteer pilot.)

LANGUAGES - OUR AIMS AND OBJECTIVES ARE...
At Airedale Junior School, we believe that the learning of a foreign language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for our pupils. It helps them to develop communication skills including key skills of speaking and listening and extends their knowledge of how language works. Learning another language gives children a new perspective on the world, promotes global citizenship and encourages them to understand their own cultures and those of others.
Primary Languages teaching at Airedale Junior School is fully inclusive. No child is excluded by reason of a learning difficulty, or because they have English as an additional language. Experience has indeed shown that such children can derive particular benefit from taking part in Primary Languages learning activities in which they may be less disadvantaged than in other areas of the curriculum.
Language learning activities are planned in such a way as to encourage the full and active participation of all pupils. Work is differentiated as appropriate to the needs of individual children. Pairs and groups for collaborative work may be made up in different ways, depending on the task.
Foreign language learning has now become part of the National Curriculum from Key Stage 2 onwards. At Airedale, we follow Wakefield language scheme ‘La Jolie Ronde’ (written by Rachel Redfearn) and other teaching approaches including 2 Simple French.
The aims of Primary Languages teaching at Airedale are to ensure that all pupils:
