Rhymes across Languages

We had a visitor today who entered the class speaking in German! There were a few confused faces for sure. The children were read a German poem and challenged to decode what it meant in English. They were quite surprised at how much German words were similar to English. The children then created words onto a mind map which rhymed with ‘quack’ in their groups to help them write their own version of the poem. All children managed to complete a short poem and read these out at the end to their classmates. They were so proud of their work and so they should be! The learning opportunities using different languages are endless! Well done Primary 5.
