Romanian Immersion Day

On Friday 23rd March, we had the most fantastic day immersing ourselves in Romanian traditions, culture and the Romanian language. We were very fortunate to have Andrea, Catalin and Theodor's family come in to school, wearing traditional dress, and teach us all about their culture. 

We started the day with a special assembly where we learned some interesting facts about Romania. We also learnt how to sing Happy Birthday in Romanian in preparation for use in our Celebration assemblies.

Throughout the day we all participated in four different activities. We learned some traditional Romanian dances, made Romanian passports, decorated hard boiled eggs dyed with onion skins and then played a game with the eggs, similar to conkers, which is an ancient Easter tradition. The words "Cristos unveat – Jesus Christ is risen." "Adeverat a univeat – yes it’s true – He is risen."  are used as the eggs are knocked together. The strongest egg which doesn't crack is the winner and gets a special prize.

We also enjoyed a Romanian language lesson and listening to Romanian stories.We also made martishar decorations which symbolise the start of Spring.

After lunch we used our passports to go to a Romanian café where we tried lots of traditional homemade Romanian food, it was so delicious! What a great day we had!
