We had a great time exploring a variety of different Languages this week. Some of our pupils have put together an extra Newsletter to share with you some of the learning which took place over the course of our Languages celebration week.
Day 1 –
We took part in a lesson and learned how to say different colours in German. We learned gelb was yellow, rosa was pink, rot was red, purple was lila, orange was orange and green was grun. By Jack, Carlie and Tia
Day 2 –
Mrs Connolly taught us how to say hello and write the numbers to 10 in Mandarin. We listened to a song that Mrs Connolly used to sing with her class in Singapore. By Jack, Carlie and Tia
Day 3 –
We were listening to the story of ‘El Gruffalo’. Everytime we heard the Spanish word for Fox- zorro, Owl- buho, Mouse-raton and Snake-serpiente, we had to make a noise and do an action. Then we went on a Gruffalo Treasure Hunt around the playground. Mr McKenzie came to visit us and taught us the Russian alphabet in the afternoon. We had to match up the name of the cartoon character to their name in Russian.By Jack, Carlie and Tia
We learned how to sing a song about a snail, ‘row, row, row your boat’ and a ‘hello’ song in French. We made some origami boats and we wrote the words to’ row, row, row your boat’ on them. When we sang the hello song we shook hands and asked them how they were in French. By Connor, Gabriel, Izabella and Zoe
Day 5 –
It was fun learning some Danish. It was snowing outside and we learned that to say it’s snowing in Danish is ‘det sner’. We also had a little taste of food. It was all Spanish cheeses and different ham and meat. Some of the food tasted smokey, salty, spicy and cheesy. By Connor, Natalie and Cheryl.
