Kinnaird Primary School
There was a buzz of excitement in Kinnaird Primary on Thursday 26th September for the European Day of Languages.
Each class in the school learned how to say hello in a different language and pupils greeted each other throughout the day using their new words. The catering team had organised a special international themed lunch and the dining hall was decorated with flags, bunting, pictures and images from different countries. Pupils greeted the catering staff in lots of different languages. Some classes had been learning about European countries, languages and flags for homework tasks and were able to share their work in school on the day.
Many pupils utilised their ICT skills by composing Tweets about learning another language and playing online quizzes about Europe and languages spoken within Europe. The winning Tweet on the day was, “Language learning widens job options and boosts brain power. Kinnaird loves languages!”. All in all a fun and successful day. We are looking forward to next year already!
