Happy Saint David’s Day!

Happy Saint David’s Day!

This week, at White Rose, we are enjoying some culture. In both children’s and adult lessons, we have been talking about Saint David’s Day which is celebrated every year on March 1st in Wales.今週、ホワイトローズでウェールズの文化を楽しんでいます。子ども・大人のレッスンで聖デイヴィッドのお話をしています。3月1日はセント・デイヴィッズ・デイと呼ばれてウェールズの祝日となっております。
Wales is one of the four countries that form the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Situated in the South West of the island of Great Britain,it is bordered by England to the east, the Irish Sea to the north and west, and the Bristol channel to the south. ウェールズは、グレートブリテンおよび北アイルランド連合王国(イギリス)を構成する4つの「国(イギリスのカントリー)」のひとつである。ウェールズはグレートブリテン島の南西に位置し、南にブリストル海峡、東にイングランド、西と北にはアイリッシュ海が存在する。
Saint David is the Patron Saint of Wales. Every year, on March 1st, parades and special events take place all over Wales to celebrate the day. Some people wear traditional Welsh costumes, while others pin a leek or daffodil (both traditional symbols of Wales) to their clothes.
In honour of the day, I decorated our children’s classroom with Welsh-themed banners and buntings and, for our Afternoon Tea lessons, made some rather delicious Welsh cakes.
Learning about different cultures can be fun for both teacher and student! 今週のレッスンは楽しかったです。私も勉強になりました。
