Littlegarth School Day of Languages

The day started with a special assembly themed on breakfast around the world. The children took part in a quiz where they guessed where certain breakfasts came from. A special thank you to Lukas, Ben and Elspeth for sharing poems with us in Swedish, French and Spanish. Our assembly was followed by a delicious French petit déjeuner. Throughout the day, the children in Years 1 to 6 took part in Japanese taster sessions. We looked at how Japanese is spoken and written with the children trying their hand at writing Kanji using calligraphy pens. The children and staff enjoyed the day and I hope it explains why some children were trying to converse in Japanese when they got home!
