Day 2 of the World Language Festival was just as fun-packed as the previous day promised. The day started with a Grade 5 field trip to the home of Baron Rodolphe d’Erlanger in Sidi Bou Said. It was a fascinating place to explore and the views from each part of the palace were spectacular.
Today the favourite word wall is beginning to take some colour and meaning. Teachers and children from different grades are adding their favourite word from another language to the wall – I look forward to seeing what it looks like at the end of the week!
Grades 1 and 2 had a special visitor today – Monsieur Caron from the Secondary school came to talk to them about why it is important to be a polyglot and to really make them appreciate what a wealth of knowledge we have within our classes due to the range of languages that we speak. Merci Monsieur Caron!
Finally, the After School World Language students had a great time sharing their own languages and learning how to write their names in three or four different languages and scripts.
What a great day!
