North Roe Primary School

The Netherlands

| 1 Comment

Nynke’s mum Saskia came into school to tell us all about the Netherlands. Saskia is from a village in the Netherlands called Hallum, she brought in lots of beautiful pictures of the Netherlands to show us. The children loved seeing the pictures of the lovely landscapes, tulip fields, canals and windmills. Saskia read the younger pupils a Dutch story, it was great to listen to a story in a different language. The children wanted to hear lots of words in Dutch. Saskia brought in a sweet treat for the children, we got to taste Dutch crispbakes with ‘sugar mice’ on top. The sugar mice were yummy, Saskia said that it is tradition to buy someone a blue or pink box if they have had a baby boy or girl. Saskia showed us pictures of her mum wearing her traditional Dutch dress, she said that the different regions of the Netherlands all have a different traditional dress. We really enjoyed having Saskia in school, thank-you so much for coming in to talk to us Saskia. We all want to go on holiday to the Netherlands now! 🙂
