What an effort everyone made with dressing up; pupils and teachers looked fantastic.In assembly, we looked at the importance of embracing cultural and linguistic diversity, as well as all the opportunities learning a language can offer.
The children also had the opportunity to learn how to answer the register in a different language and listen to a foreign-language story during their afternoon storytime. There was such a great energy during the day, and it was wonderful to see children so proudly sharing their languages and cultural backgrounds with the St Christopher’s community, as well as eagerly asking questions to learn more about other countries.
Throughout the week, children took part in specially planned lessons. Children from Reception to Year 2 excitedly participated in a French Disney sing- along, learning how to sing ‘Be our Guest’ from Beauty and the Beast. In Years 3 and 4, children designed ‘Marvellous Menus’ based on foods from around the world and Years 5 and 6 developed their geographical and research skills by undertaking an ICT research project on a country of their choice. Congratulations to all the children below who impressed with their excellent effort and were awarded certificates in Friday’s celebration assembly:
The biggest highlight was undoubtedly the delicious ‘Taste of Spain’ menu that the catering team provided for the day. Children enjoyed delicious plates of paella, meatballs, tortilla, patatas bravas and pisto. They then tucked into traditional homemade churros which went down a real treat!
A huge thank you to all the staff who helped support the whole-school event, as well as parents for helping the children organise their fantastic outfits. I do hope you enjoy looking at some of the photos of everyone in their multicultural finery.
