European Day of Languages

This week at Eastbrook Primary, we had an extraordinary time acknowledging European Day of Languages. European Day of Languages was first celebrated in 2001 and was started by European Commission and Council of Europe. It was thought of as a day we can celebrate the different languages spoken across Europe. Did you know, that there are 24 official languages spoken across Europe! What an amazing fact!

To mark the day at Eastbrook, the pupils took part in a variety of activities. From learning how to say hello and goodbye in another language, using the outline of hands to design European flags, to creating a stain glass silhouette of a European landmark and also playing a board games that allowed the pupils to travel across the different countries of Europe.

The pupils thoroughly enjoyed being part for a very special day and were extremely excited to share their knowledge of different languages.
