Language of the Month

In February, our Language of the Month is Shona. This is a language commonly spoken in Zimbabwe. We welcome all parents/ carers who can speak Shona to come into school to teach us some phrases, read a story or perhaps talk to the children about Zimbabwe. Here are a few simple words to speak at home:

Hello/ how are you – makadii
I’m fine - ndiripo
bye - bhaibhai
thanks - ‎ ndatenda

Please ask your child to model the correct pronunciation.

Ndatenda (thank you) to the parents and children who have already contributed to the display, it looks fantastic!

Wartime Treats in Y4

This afternoon, the children in Y4KS enjoyed some wartime treats! They went back to the 1940s and had pancakes with limited sugar and jam because these foods were rationed in the war. After they had enjoyed these tasty treats, the children did some research on why the government rationed foods and what foods were rationed. 

Ask the children from Y4KS what they can tell you about rationing in WW2!

See the photo gallery below for some pictures of our afternoon.

French Galette in Y3

There was great excitement in Y3 on Wednesday when the children played a game which involved eating French cake called Galette. Five children were lucky enough to find a fève (token in the form of a little toy) inside the galette and they were subsequently crowned kings and queens (les rois et les reines).  The kings and queens were then given the power to boss their friends around for the rest of the afternoon (in the nicest possible way!) Well done children. Félicitations les enfants!

Here is the video of the song we learnt before we are our galette:
