Prae Wood Primary School pupils celebrate European Day of Languages
Children from a St Albans school have abandoned their usual timetable to take part in a jam packed programme as part of the European Day of Languages celebrations.
On Thursday, Prae Wood Primary School’s year five and six pupils, who have French lessons once a week, set up a French café and sampled cheeses, while also taking part in a boules competition.
While years three and four pupils from the school in King Harry Lane, who are currently learning Spanish, prepared and tasted a delicious selection of Spanish tapas.
Throughout the day, parents and grandparents from the school community visited classes across the whole school to teach a few words in a range of languages from Europe and further afield.
The school was also lucky enough to welcome speakers of Afrikaans, Arabic, Danish, Dutch, German, Jamaican Patois, Portuguese, Punjabi, Slovak and Welsh.
To end their day, each pupil left with a 'European passport' of stickers, a ruler and rubber all provided by the EU.
