European Languages Week

On Monday the 26th of September it is the annual European Day of Languages. We had a fantastic day and all came in dressed in the colours of the Spanish flag to kickstart our fun week of language learning! Just look how colourful we all looked!

We enjoyed learning a Spanish clapping game all about chocolate and have been practising it in the playground! Ask us to show you!

Throughout the week, Years 1 to 6 had a fantastic time trying out lots of different Spanish activities. We learnt lots of facts about the Geography and culture of Spain. We got to try fruity Sangria, learn lots of Spanish vocabulary and even tried some Flamenco dancing. Year 1 actually recreated the Pamplona bull run in the playground! Check out our pictures below to see what we got up to.

Some of the children took part in an extra homework challenge. The Linguabat challenge. They told the story of a bat visiting different countries around the world and learning new facts. They have earned a certificate and prizes are on the way! Fantastic work!
