Day 3 of the World Language Festival kicked off by the fiercely challenging competition ‘le Grand Concours’. Students from Grades 3 to 5 were placed on tables in the cafeteria where they worked in teams and used their collective knowledge about languages to guess the correct answer to the quiz questions. It was a fun morning and the children learnt a lot from each other!
At 11 o’clock Grade 3 students prepared themselves for the International Reading Picnic with Pre-K students. They set themselves up with little stations where they were either reading a book in a foreign language or teaching numbers 1-10 in a foreign language and Pre-K students could come and sit at whatever station they chose. Parents also attended this wonderful event and we even had some foreign language singing by a bold Pre-K little boy. The event was a great success!
The day ended with Grades 4-5 After School World Language taking part in Tunisian pastry making workshops. At first Ms Mbarek and Ms Haddad explained the origins of certain types of sweets and how the various cultures have influenced Tunisian tastes and cuisine. Then students all got a chance to get their hands dirty and make some Tunisian pastries of their own. The pastries were absolutely delicious and everyone learnt a lot too!
