Class 13: "My kids loved languages week. Different children came up to the front and taught the rest of the class how to count and say basic words and phrases in their other languages. We also had brilliant class discussions about our love for different languages."
Wow- what a lot of clever children we have!
Class 14: "It’s Languages Week, and we’ve been letting the children do the teaching! Throughout the week, different children delivered wonderful lessons in lots of different languages!
Check out some wonderful language facts from the children in Class 14:
Did you know that good morning teacher in Polish is ‘Dzien dobry nauczcielka?’
Did you know that hello and how are you in Irish is ‘Dia dhuit. Conas ata tu?’
Did you know that I don’t speak French is ‘Je ne parle pas francais.’
Did you know that in Poland, they have a special day devoted to eating donuts and sweet treats? This is on the Thursday before lent each year.
Check out some of the pictures below to see some of the wonderful teaching talent in Class 14!"
