European Day of Languages
Throughout Europe, The European Day of Languages is a time to celebrate the 6,000+ languages spoken around the world, promote language learning and have some multilingual fun!
Here at Prince Bishops, each class adopted a country and dressed in their colours for the day. A range of engaging activities took place across the school including: learning songs, greetings and simple phrases in different languages; playing games; food tasting; researching the geography, music, dance, art and famous people from each country; and producing cupcakes for our Macmillan coffee morning with an international theme!
A fun and productive day was had by all…
After finding out about the tradition of Spanish bull fighting, Year 3 used this a theme to decorate cupcakes for a Macmillan coffee morning.
They researched Spain and produced their own posters and factsheets.
After watching a video of Spanish children making paella, Year 3 tried some for themselves.
See the video clips below to find out if they enjoyed it...
Making Italian inspired cakes for Macmillan:
We have recently done some fascinating work about Nelson Mandela. We produced facts files using publisher and PowerPoint about Nelson Mandela's home country South Africa.
We produced art work based on illuminated script from the Lindisfarne Gospel. We did this by using African greetings as our focus.
We were very lucky because Reuben's mum Nadia who is from South Africa came to visit our class. We asked her lots of questions and found out interesting things about the South African culture.
