Sept 28th / Cat & Heather in 8J tell us all about this event.

Japan 1

Last Friday was MFL Fun Day for Y8.  We learned all about other cultures and languages around the world.

One of the activities was a quiz about the Eurovision song contest. We watched a number of videos and had to guess which language it was in from a list of possibilities. Miss Rowe taught this session and it was fun to learn about how various languages sound and how they compare to others.

We learned a song which included English, French, German, Italian and Spanish with Mrs Agrotis. It was called ‘A song for the world’. We made a dance to go with the song.

With Miss Hanna we made posters about different festivals and traditions of countries around the world.
