Leighton Primary School

European Day of Languages

The children in Year 5 have been learning about Portugal and the language of portuguese. They found Portugal using maps and atlases and discussed its location in relation to key geographic features such as the equator. Portugese speakers in the year group helped the children to learn phrases and greetings and we also used online sources to find out the names of body parts and fruits in the language. Later in the day, we found out about why the portugese flag includes the colours of red and green and we talked about our experiences of the country. Alongside this, we read 'The Legend of the Rooster' and it was here that we were able to learn all about why the rooster is symbolic to Portugal. To remember our exciting learning, we made our own rooster and took these home to share with our families.
