There was plenty of red and white on display at a Northumberland school for this year’s celebration of another country’s culture.

Grange View Church of England First School’s annual European Day of Languages initiative focuses on a different country each time and Poland was chosen for 2016.

The activities during the European Day of Languages at Grange View Church of England First School included baking.

Throughout the day, all the children learned a polka-style Polish dance with an outside expert, Beth Loughran, which they shared with each other at the end of the day.

Some classes did baking, creating Polish Cake, and pupils tried other traditional foods.

In addition to a range of art and craft activities, they sang a few songs from the country and were taught lots of facts about it. At the end of the day, they worked in teams to answer quiz questions in the hall to test and celebrate all the things they learned.

As ever, the pupils had a lot of fun and Turkey has already been chosen for next year.

Grange View has the International School Award accreditation. The award is managed by the British Council.
