On Thursday 26th September 2019, RFPS celebrated European Languages Day. How exciting! We choose to study European Languages Day because lots of people around us speak different languages and at RFPS we want to celebrate all of the different cultures we have here at our school and all around our world. We find it fascinating to learn about cultures that may be different to our own and celebrating the ones we are apart of. Each year group were assigned with the task to learn more about a European country in depth. Reception chose to learn about France, Year One: Spain, Year Two: Greece, Year Three: Germany and Year Four: Italy. Each class started the school day by learning some phrases and greeting in the language which they were studying, the children then completed some fun activities to learn more about it.
“We learnt about France, I made the Eiffel Tower because it is in France and you say BONJOUR, that means hello.” – Harvey, Reception.
“We made Spanish omelettes, they’re delicious but they take a long time to make and we learnt about the names of animals, el gato means goat” – Charlie, Year One.
“I have learnt the Greek alphabet and I’ve wrote a sentence using it. We learnt a Greek dance and ‘GEIA SAS’ means hello.” – Zachary, Year Two
“In Year Three we have been learning about quite a few famous landmarks in Germany, like the television tower and the Berlin Wall and the Berlin State Opera. I’ve learnt so many facts so when I go on holiday I will know what to see.” – Sienna, Year Three
“In Year Four we made pizza which was created in Italy and we learnt an Italian dance called the Tarantella. We also learnt about Venice. Did you know that Venice is sinking? It means it won’t exist anymore. How crazy! I’m glad we chose to learn about Italy because I’m Italian and I love Italy.” – Julie, Year Four.
