International Learning

User Rating:  / 0

This half term, Year 1 have enjoyed a number of activities as part of developing an international dimension to our learning.

We explored the languages which different children use across our school (and we learnt that there are MANY different languages which pupils at Whitehouse Common Speak!). Children visited us from different year groups and taught us some simple words in their own languages which included Spanish, Arabic and Greek. We also looked at where these countries were on a world map and we could see how far across the world they spread.

We followed this by looking at books written in different languages and using the pictures and our knowlege of the familiar stories to see if we could work out what some of the words meant. We also saw how different the alphabet can look in different languages.

We have also marked some different international days such as Walt Disney Day (when we found out where in the world different Disney characters come from), Go Carol Singing Day (where we learnt some simple carols and visited classes across the school to share our learning by singing to them!) and Maple Syrup Day.

For Maple Syrup Day, we learnt where Maple Syrup comes from and how it is made and then we used some to make Christmas themed Reindeer Cupcakes. It was great fun (and we enjoyed eating them too)!
