Herzlich Willkommen to the latest news from the German classroom.
Since Term 3 of last year, Bull Creek has had a German resource centre in the library, with lots of fantastic resources like a set of Blue Bots. When learning about the seasons, the Year Threes used the Blue -Bots to program and work out challenges, such as, what ‘s the fastest way to get the Blue - Bots through all seasons.
In Banksia, we are getting ready for the World Soccer Cup, 2018. In Week 4, we had a visit from the mascot Goliath. Goliath is from Germany and he is going to visit students in Years 5 and 6 in 32 countries before he goes to Russia. Learning a language is like playing Fußball: Training makes you perfect!
The Pre-Primaries have made an amazing start learning German. Their puppet friends, Felix and Franzi, help them. With yoga like exercises in between, they learn a second language and increase their self-esteem and confidence at the same time. It also teaches them the art of mindfulness.
If you would like to know more about the German program or have any questions, please feel free to see me.
