MFL AFTERNOON 

We had a great afternoon learning about Poland today.  Luke’s mum came in and taught us some Polish and shared some information about the country and their traditions.  We liked the sound of doughnut day best!  We located the country on a map, listened to the national anthem and looked at a range of photos.  To finish off the afternoon, we did some traditional Polish folk art (Wycinanki).
