Our Preparatory School Lower One classes have been learning about birthdays in German this term – “Wir feiern Geburtstag" (we celebrate our birthday) - covering family members, describing people, colours, numbers, dates, birthday party activities and famous German children's songs. They have been familiar with Bussi Bär – Germany and Austria’s famous children’s cartoon character - since their Pre Preparatory School days and they were delighted this week when he came in to see them to celebrate his birthday!
After singing "Zum Geburtstag viel Glück" (Happy birthday), the children sang and danced to the German songs they have been learning all term and played popular German birthday games. Everyone, including Bussi Bär had a fantastic time – and of course it wouldn’t have been a birthday party without squash and cake! Alles Gute zum Geburtstag Bussi Bär!
