Polish Afternoon 23rd May 2019
On the 23rd of May 2019 we had our second EAL day. This time we celebrated our children who have Polish as a home language or first language. We have 13 children at Southglade. We wanted them to have an opportunity to embrace their first language and educate the other children in their classes. The children could also come into school wearing their Polish football kits or wear Red and White (colours that represent the Polish flag). During the Polish afternoon the children learnt basic Polish language that was mostly taught by our Polish speaking children. Learnt facts about Poland and used this knowledge to make art. Afterwards the children were treated to traditional Polish foods at a special tea party.
In Year 1 the children learnt all about colours with unique teaching by Fabian. Then produced these beautiful rainbows using their Polish colour knowledge.
Kryspin who is in year 5 taught 3 classes all the basics of Polish including colours, numbers and greetings. We wouldn't have had such an informative afternoon without him.
The wonderful dinner ladies also embraced Polish day by dressing up and the Polish flag colours (Red and White) and also having a polish menu. The Reception children definitely loved it!!
All across KS1 and KS2 on Friday afternoon was Italian afternoon. After a classic italian lunch like spaghetti and lasagne, classes leaned some basic Italian vocab, cooked some pizza's, became artists like MichaelAngelo and did some artwork under the table and some even learned a new song. Every italian child became the teacher in their year group and taught the other children numbers , colours and various greetings. An amazing time was had by all.

Keep a look out for all the amazing things that will be happening on our EAL afternoon across school on the 22nd of March 2019. All classes across KS1 and Ks2 will be teaching and learning about Italy. There is going to be cooking and art and lots of basic language skills.
The EAL group have been learning all week about shopping. Names of items and how to ask for them. We even had shopping lists and took it in turns to buy them from the pretend shop. We used english coins and also learnt about money. As a treat and to test their shopping skills Mrs Della Rocca took The EAL group out shopping to buy fruit. They went to Hopkins bakery on Beckhampton road. Each child had £1 to spend and they had to ask for their item and pay for it. Mrs Della Rocca couldn't have been more proud. They all went back to school to enjoy the grapes and oranges (Plus two cakes that Mike from the bakery threw in.) A lovely afternoon was had by all.

The Eal group were learning about all kinds of weather today. They used a spooky hand that stopped in random places and the nearest group member had to say it then act it out.
