International Day September 2014

We marked the annual celebration of 'European Day of Languages' by holding St Austin's 

'International Day'. 

Each year, we decide on a different focus for the day and this year we began our look at the theme for the second year of our international Comenius partnership

'Fables and legends'.

Each year group chose a typical fable or legend from the country of one  of our partner schools;Spain, Turkey or Poland and carried out activities linked to this.  This work will be shared with our link schools on our shared blog site.


Children, also, had the opportunity to further their knowledge of international cultures by carrying out fact finding research, listening to typical music and sampling traditional dishes.


We were delighted to welcome visitors into school who enriched the children's learning by teaching them some simple phrases and sharing cultural experiences and learning with them. 


Take a look at all the fun we had on latest news..
