Children took pictures of animals home to request vocabulary in different languages from parents, and listened to the Noah’s Ark story in English and Bengali. The nursery class in primary school used a large cardboard ark constructed by their teacher to roleplay the animals going into the ark, naming them in different languages. In the Bengali community class, children wrote the story in their own words at home.
