Year 4 – Language Detectives

As language detectives, this week,  we have used what we know to work things out and find out more about languages.

Your task for the rest of the week is to continue being language detectives and look out for different languages you hear (friends, restaurants, adverts) or see (packaging).

Keep a note of your findings and record on this class blog.

I will share your responses with the class on Monday next week.
