Pupils from years 3 and 4 took part in a Languages event at Fitzharrys school.
St Nicolas joined pupils from Fitzharrys, Long Furlong and St Edmund's. We heard songs, plays and stories in French and Spanish.
Our Year 4 pupils performed a play about four animal friends called 'Les Quatres Amis'.
Our Year 3 pupils told a story about a wolf getting dressed, 'Je m'habille et je te croque!'
Well done everyone!
Pupils in Year 4 learned all about Carnival season in Italy.
Mrs Tricklebank talked to the children about the history of the festival, its links to the start of Lent and its traditions, including food, dressing up, masks and decorations. She shared her own childhood memories of the festival too, including some photos!
The children tried traditional Carnevale treats, baked by Mrs Tricklebank and her mother and designed their own amazing masks.
They also have a quiz to complete about all the traditions.
There are some photos displayed in the corridor between the Year 4 classrooms.

European Day of Languages
We celebrated languages today with a range of activities across the school.
Classes had visitors and language based activities in the morning and children in KS2 took part in a treasure-hunt style quiz around the playground, finding all the language clues on 10 different posters.
In the afternoon we all came together for an assembly. We sang together in a range of languages and some children shared what they had learned during the morning.
