Moreton First Celebrates The European Day of Languages 2011

The European Day of Languages celebrated its 10th birthday on Friday and to mark the occasion all the pupils and teachers at Moreton First came to school in fancy dress with a European theme. At break time they were spoilt for choice with brioches, baguettes, croissants and pains au chocolat which they had to ask for in French.

The children gave a special assembly about the importance of learning foreign languages to communicate with our European neighbours and performed role plays in German, Spanish and French. After that the children learnt about the artist Georges Seurat and tried their hand at pointillism; decorated T-shirts with multilingual phrases and tried to match all the countries with their flag in the Europe quiz. They baked ‘Quiche Lorraine'; made lavender bags and played boules. KS1 'went' on a trip to Paris with Barnaby Bear, enjoyed flamenco dancing and learning the colours in German.
