We have been learning to speak in different languages during European day of languages. Some of the children in Almond class taught us how to speak in their home language.
Olivia taught us to speak Polish.
Kerem taught us to speak Turkish
Mohammad taught us how to speak the Islamic greeting 'Peace be unto you'.
We also learnt how to greet each other in French.
Elm class learned how to say “Hello, my name is....” in French!
Lorenzo then taught us how to say in Italian “Hello my name is....” and then the numbers 1-10!
On Wednesday 25th September, Beech class marked European Languages Day. We had to be code breakers and look for patterns in the different sentences to see if we could work out the word for sister in the different languages. It was interesting to see the patterns that were similar across the different languages and we had fun trying to say the sentences with a partner.
Oak Class discussed the importance of learning different languages and how being able speak another language might benefit them now and in the future. They came up with lots of good ideas! After this they compared 8 different languages, spotting similarities and differences between them all. Great work, Oak Class!
