A day with a Spanish flavour
Posted: 13th November 2014
Pupils at Skippers Hill enjoyed a special Spanish Day, this week.
Children aged 2-13, from the school’s Kindergarten up to Year 8, wore Spanish costumes and dressed in red, yellow and black to take part in a range of activities throughout the day including Spanish Art, Music and Games, as well as Salsa dancing workshops with Salsamagic.
In keeping with the Spanish theme, Drama Club pupils from Years 6 to 8 also performed a 10-minute adaptation of “A Little Nut Tree” by T. B. Morris.
Pupils and teachers were even able to experience some Spanish cuisine with a themed lunch and tapas, which they sampled in the Spanish Café, ordering and serving food to one another, in Spanish.
Year 6 pupil, Eve Steward, said: “My favourite thing has been the Spanish tapas. I think Spanish Day is a really good idea. It gets us all speaking Spanish and thinking about other countries.”
Headmaster, Tim Lewis, commented: “Our children embarked on a wonderful journey through Spanish culture, this week. Activity days like this really help to support the curriculum and allow our pupils to broaden their cultural experience, as well as building cross-curricular links and connections between pupils of all ages. The children delighted in the taste of Spain: alcohol-free Sangria, Tapas, Salsa, Albondigas and a whole day of tangible education…maravilloso!”
