Language of the Term...

This academic year our Language of the Term in Term 1 has been Hindi which has linked to our learning about the Hindu celebration of Diwali. Children have been using some words of Hindi, e.g. ‘Namaste’, ‘Swagat’ and ‘Shukriya’ and learning that although Hindi is mainly spoken in northern and central India it is also widely spoken in South Africa, Bangladesh, Yemen, Uganda and the UK.

In Term 2 our Language of the Term will be Polish.

We will be learning how to say: ‘Welcome’, ‘Hello’, ‘Good morning’, ‘Yes’, ‘No’ and ‘Thank you’.

During the half term holiday, why not use the link to the website below to have a go at saying these words together home? https://www.newburyparkschool.net/lotm/polish/player.html
