P5/6 were very lucky this week, they had visitors from Latvia and Lithuania in to talk to us about the food in their country. Timonas’s mum told them all about the weather, sports and sights in Lithuania . She even brought them in some tree cake and mushroom cakes to taste, they loved them!
Alekss’s step dad told them all about the natural ingredients he uses when he makes Latvian food. They use a lot of vegetables and their food tends to fill them up more than our food might. It was very interesting.
Miss Carruther's class also had Marta's mum in to talk about Portugal. The children had lots of questions to ask her. It was really interesting to compare our country to Portugal. The pupils were very interested to hear how school is different in Portugal. They learned that children don't start school until they are 6 years old!!
