European Day of Languages

Wednesday 26th September was European Day of Languages. All pupils and staff came to school dressed in the colours of the French flag- red, white and blue. Everyone had fun making human flags which contained these colours- Switzerland, Monaco, Canada etc. At break time the pupils were able to sample French snacks- croissant, pain au chocolat and crepes. It was a great day and the pupils enjoyed speaking French, German and Spanish! Can you guess the flags below?
