Es ist Winter!

Es ist Winter!

 

It’s not long until our WinterFest!  I hope you can join us for some European Wintry Fun! Keep an eye out for information in the Newsletter!

Have you seen the German Tree in the Library?

It looks like a true Winterbaum!  It is covered in glitzende Schneeflocken that Year 2 made for me.

 

Winter = Winter

Baum = tree

Glitzende = glittering

Schneeflocke = snowflake

 

Es ist Herbst

Year 2 are learning about the seasons of the year.

We learned that last week Herbst started (Autumn), and that the seasons are the opposite in Germany.

Klasse 2 are creating our Herbstblätter for decorating my tree in the Library.

We started learning some colour words to describe the leaves:  rot, orange, gelb, braun.

Here are some songs we enjoyed:

 

and this is a lovely song about the autumn wind.

 

Magst du Herbst?  Warum?

 

Do you like autumn?  Why?

 

WinterFest!

WinterFest kommt bald dran!

WinterFest is nearly here!

It will be lots of fun.  Come along and bring your friends.

You will have lots of fun activities to do:  Schlittschuhlaufen, Schneespielen, Singen, Tanzen, Laterne-machen, und vieles leckeres Essen zum essen!

Can you work out what any of those words mean?

Don’t forget there will be a Lantern Parade – you will be able to paint your very own lantern for the parade.

Year 1 will be learning more about this later in the year.  Older students should remember what the Lantern parade is about:  Martinstag (Sankt Martin).  See if your students can remember the story of St Martin.

Here is a link to one of the songs we will be singing – you might remember it!

 

Tschüß!
