In Mandarin we learned how to count to 10 using words and symbols

In German we also counted to 10  and learnt a few colours. Some of the words are  similar to French ones.

In French we  talked about the weather and have begun to make a weather dice to use next time.

It was European Language day on Wednesday so we designed menus from around the world and discussed all the different languages people can speak in the class. We have a very multilingual class.
