Today was Spanish Day at Cathedral School. It was wonderful to see so many of the children dressed up in traditional Spanish costumes and colours! We started the day by singing ‘Hola Amigos’ in our celebration assembly. The children then spent the morning learning Spanish phrases, listening to and translating Spanish stories and counting using Spanish numbers.
At lunchtime, traditional Spanish music was played in the hall while the children and staff enjoyed either Spanish chicken or stew followed by churros!
This afternoon, a range of activities took place from flamenco dancing to creating Spanish holiday brochures to Gaudi inspired mosaics. All around the school it was lovely to hear the children practising their Spanish and see so much excitement about Spanish language and culture. One child was heard saying “It’s been so nice to learn so much that I didn’t know about Spain today!”
Finally, thank you very much to all of our parent readers who came and read a Spanish story to the children. It was such a great opportunity for the children to ask questions about Spanish culture and language and hear a story from a native Spanish speaker.
