Welcome back to school. Today in assembly, I shared a beautiful book with the children of a collection of untranslatable words from around the world. What a wonderful word by Nicola Edwards and Luisa Uribe
Gokotta – Swedish – to wake up early in the morning so you can go outside to hear the first birds singing
Poronkusema – Finnish – the distance a reindeer can walk before needing the toilet
Nakama – Japanese – friends who are like family
I then explained to the children that there is a special word for us here at school this term. The problem was they were only given one of the letters in assembly. Over the course of the day different classes have been given a different extra letter. Can you work out the word?
