Years 1 & 2 enjoy Spanish Day
Posted: 12th November 2014 | Category: Year 1, Year 2
Years 1 & 2 enjoyed a wide variety of activities including learning Spanish songs and counting to 10, learning about Spanish money and colouring their own flags.They also watched ‘Barnaby Bear goes to Spain’ and enjoyed listening to Mrs Harvey read ‘The Gingerbread Man’ in Spanish.
The morning continued with a special Music lesson with Mrs Holleyman. Years 1 & 2 learnt about Spanish music and sang some Spanish songs.
After lunch, the children took part in a Salsa dancing workshop with Salsa Magic, as well as practicing short role play conversations together - introducing themselves and saying hello and goodbye - and playing a matching game on the whiteboard, to match the names of different colours, in Spanish.
Year 1’s favourite things about Spanish Day:
Vincent: “Wearing a Spanish sticker.”
Hollie-Mae: “Counting to 10 in Spanish.”
Matilda: “Wearing my Spanish dress.”
Ariella: “All of the colours and dressing up.”
Sarah in Year 2, said: “My favourite thing about Spanish Day was dancing, because I liked the shimmy-ing! I think Spanish Day has been really fun.”
Year 2 also completed writing exercises about the Salsa workshop and delicious Spanish lunch.
At the end of their day, the Juniors were treated to a special performance of “A Little Nut Tree” performed by a small group of drama pupils from Years 6 to 8, before collecting their Spanish Day certificates.
