The Grade 5 boys and girls have taken a different approach to learning an additional language.

Gathering together every Wednesday, we are taught new poems and rhymes by ‘Teacher Nicolette’ as they call her.

Some classic “treffers” such as ‘ ’n Jakkel het ’n hen gevang’ , ‘Vissies’, ‘Dorstyd’ and ‘Sarie Marie’ are just a few that our little legends are mastering. IMG_3343

Who would have thought that our Grade 5 boys could challenge the girls in a dance off. By following the movements and improvisation of each sing-a-long, the challenge was set to see who, out of the grade could take the bragging rights for best action and vocals to each song.

Much improvement in their confidence in attempting orals and reading of the additional language has been shown just after a couple of weeks of our Afrikaans Development classes.
