World Languages Day 2017

We have had another fantastic World Languages Day this year at Parkroyal! In assembly we talked about opening our hearts and minds to other cultures and places and talked about the benefits of learning other languages.  We learnt to sing a song in French, Spanish and Italian!  Then Year 5 and 6 went to Tytherington High School for the morning to learn some Russian, Japanese, Arabic and Spanish and they came back with some lovely cultural crafts!  Lots of children have also been learning about the meanings of words for the days of the week in English, German, French, Spanish, Italian and even Japanese today!  The children have also looked at where in the world their food comes from and some have written some wonderful poems.  There was even some very cultural dancing in Year 4! 

The children painted a flag on their faces, choosing a country which was important for them.
