Where was Germany 500 years ago? Why are there so many flags in Germany? What are some world famous German manufacturing brands? Where did the Brothers Grimm get their weird and wonderful fairy stories?
These are just some of the questions that Sparrowhawks have been looking at this week in our World Awareness activities all about Germany. Children painted the German rot-schwarz-gold flag, and also copied the flags of the Laender federal states. We learned about the many medieval principalities that came together to create Greater Germany, and labelled a map of Europe to show the countries that border Germany. We have also been looking at the intricately detailed work of the Nuernberg artist, Albrecht Durer.
