Today we celebrated the similarities and differences of a number of different cultures and nationalities from around the world in our first ever non English speaking assembly. Led by a group of pupils, the assembly was taken in no fewer than five languages including Bengali, Mandarin, Danish, French and Russian (with subtitles in English).
The children introduced and explained a little about themselves and went on to describe some of the festivities which are celebrated around the world. We discovered that whilst these can be different from each other, they all share two common themes – the importance of being with family and having good food.
We also got to hear from a wide range of our pupils introducing themselves and their interests in an array of languages. Many thanks to the families of our presenters for their support in creating our assembly.
