Birkdale Prep celebrated European Languages Day this year with a Swedish theme, which served up a real Smorgasbord of activities across the school.

The day began with a fabulous rendition of Waterloo by ABBA in assembly, followed by a taste of Swedish in Modern Foreign Language lessons courtesy of Mrs Helleday. There was language problem-solving in maths lessons and pupils also learnt about the Vikings.

The European building design competition produced a wonderful display, with some outstanding entries. William’s Leaning Tower of Pisa won top design – well done to everyone who entered.

The real highlight though was the Swedish meatballs and other treats for lunch, not to mention some really creative dressing-up too. European Day of languages concluded with a school-wide Languages Day quiz which got everyone involved.
