On World Book Day Oskar read us a Polish version of ‘Hansel and Gretel’ which was very different to the English versions we had heard before. Oskar taught us some key words from the story such as witch, sweets, father and mother in Polish. We then read the story in English adding in our new Polish words instead of the English words in the text. It was great fun to learn words and how to pronounce them in another language.
We then shared some Polish sweet biscuits which were yummy!
We then made some gingerbread biscuits as the house in Hansel and Gretel is made from biscuit. We followed instructions on a recipe carefully, weighing out our ingredients accurately and mixing to combine them all. Then we rolled out our mixture and cut shapes. They cooked beautifully and everyone enjoyed eating the biscuits!
Happy World Book Day everyone!
