Learning Tigrinya


Today, Naomi and Rhoda Ghebrenegus were very happy to teach us a few expressions in Tigrinya. As you’ll see from the clips below, they were confident and they had fun. A big thank you to their Dad, Michael, who took the time to give us some suggestions to include in the clip.

Although learning a language can be challenging sometimes, we hope the girls will continue learning Tigrinya!

Poetry in different cultures

Over the past 3 weeks, 3/4 ZS and CP have explored the beautiful art of poetry.

This reminded me of a collection of nursery rhymes from different countries beautifully illustrated ( cover below).

What is your favourite poem? In what language? What reminds you of?
