European Day of Languages

We celebrated the European day of Languages a day early today when Andrea, mother to Benito and Celina, came to visit Form 1 and Form 2. Rather than their usual French lesson, the children practised greeting each other in Spanish and learnt to count to ten, having watched and listened to La Gallina Turuleca, a lively song about a hen who lays her eggs all over the house but never in her nest. The children all enjoyed the new language, were very keen to join in with the singing and counting and we'd all like to thank Andrea for coming in to help us celebrate languages. Muchas gracias!

Here is the video the children watched. See if you can spot the Spanish numbers!

The older children had their first ever German lesson, where we practised greeting each other and counting to twelve. As well as watching the number video below, we also sang Mein Hut, der hat drei Ecken. You can listen to this below too!
