St Andrew's Learning Community (Glasgow)

This year we celebrated European Day of languages across a few schools in our learning community: St. Benedict’s, St. Rose of Lima, St. Maria Goretti, St. Bridget’s and St. Paul’s Shettleston.

Each school had an assembly, in St. Maria Goretti some P6 and P7 children delivered it to the whole school. The schools sang some multicultural songs and learned how to say hello in many European Languages.

Some schools followed a flag trail through the corridors. They were faced with naming flags and finding out their capital. In St. Rose of Lima and St. Bridget’s they used their atlas skills to help them name some flags. Meanwhile in St. Maria Goretti they had some European Passports to help.

St. Rose of Lima also enjoyed some class songs in French, their P2 class learned how to sing, “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes.”

Some classes looked at food from around Europe and discussed where it might be from. We also had lots of opportunities to give out stickers and wrist bands.

We are looking forward to making the celebrations a little bit bigger next year.
