Samoan Language Week

This week is Samoan Language week! I wanted to make sure that despite the short week, we honoured this in our tutor period as the boys in my group do not have much exposure to multiculturalism in their everyday lives.

Knowing the competitive nature of the group I set them a Samoan general knowledge game of ‘Kahoot’. This was really interesting as they jumped straight into the task but struggled to answer a lot of the questions.

They enjoyed the challenge though and were having interesting and meaningful conversations during the quiz about what they learnt. Given that we have a population of Samoan learners at our school, but not in our tutor group I think this was a really important task to do with the learners.
