On Thursday, we celebrated ‘Dia de Español’ (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 Hola’ in assembly. The children then spent the morning learning Spanish phrases, listening to and translating Spanish stories and making sums out of Spanish word problems.
At lunchtime, traditional Spanish music was played in the hall as children and staff enjoyed either Spanish chicken or omelette followed by some very delicious churros!
This afternoon, a range of activities took place from flamenco dancing to decorating Spanish flag bunting to Miro inspired drawings. All around the school it was lovely to hear the childrenpractising their Spanish and showing so much enthusiasm for Spanish language and culture.
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.
