Carnevale!

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. 

 

Friday 1st July 2016


Pupils from years 3 and 4 took part in a Languages event at Fitzharrys school. 
St Nicolas joined pupils from Fitzharrys, John Mason, Long Furlong, St Edmunds and Carswell. We heard conversations, songs and stories in French and German.

Our Year 3 pupils performed a play about a wolf getting dressed, using the story 'Je m'habille et je te croque!' They then sang a song, 'Promenons nous dans les bois', which told a similar story about the wolf.

Pupils in Year 4 have been learning a story about four animal friends called 'Les Quatres Amis'. In the story the four friends work together to reach a beautiful red apple (la belle pomme rouge) from the apple tree. The children retold the story and acted it out.

Italian Christmas

 

On Tuesday 8th December we were very lucky to have a visit from Marta Tricklebank


(Mrs T from Year 6!)  to learn all about the traditions of Christmas in Italy.


The children had a great time putting together a meal for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. We all learned an Italian Christmas song.


Some children had a go at making models of Italian food - we will continue with this next week.
