EUROPEAN DAY OF LANGUAGES
Holy Trinity and St John's celebrated the European Day of Languages in style.
It was a busy day with children and adults involved in wonderful activities.
During the morning, the children studied their chosen country, learned some greetings in the language and watched videos to see what their country looked like.
In the afternoon, each year group was visited by a parent from their chosen country who delighted everyone with their wonderful traditional cooking.
The smells drifted along the corridors of the school to delight all who walked around. Everyone experienced foreign food at first hand, prepared with love and dedication by our lovely mums from Poland, Bulgaria, Sri Lanka, The Philippines, Latvia and Bangladesh.
It was a remarkable event for all involved and our children from these countries beamed with pride as all their classmates celebrated their country.
All the staff and mums have worked hard to make this a special day for all to learn to understand and appreciate each other a bit more, wherever we are from.
Where in the world do we come from?
We have lots of children who come from all over the world at Holy Trinity. Some children are from Thanet, some come from far away. Let's have a look at the map to see where from.
Language of the term.
Every term we are learning a little about a new language.
In term 1, we are looking at French and some of the things which are French. Look at our page on the television screen in the foyer and don't miss what's in the newsletter.
Can you count to 10 in French?
Our language of the term for term 2 is Slovak. We have learnt a lot about Slovakia and the people who live there. We can say "Dobry Den" to greet people and we can say "Djakuyem" to say thank you.
