LOHT celebrates the different backgrounds of the pupils at Furzedown, encourages understanding of other cultures and gives the children an opportunity to communicate in a different language each half term. The scheme introduces everyone at the school to some of the languages spoken in the school community with children as young as 4 able to express themselves in different languages.
This half term our language is Somali.
