European Day of Languages 2017

French EDL readingOn the 26th of September there was a special celebration called the European Day of Languages and it was extremely fun. If we spoke a different language we got a house point (paper flag token). I got five and was very happy. We all had a lovely day and we enjoyed our special European lunch. There was also a story written by Quentin Blake, read to us in French by Vladimir’s mother. We thought it was great, especially the fact that we got to keep it!
