Spanish Afternoon 2018

We had an exciting afternoon yesterday, with our annual Spanish Afternoon taking place in Reception-Year 5!

Pupils were given a passport, which they were to get ‘stamped’ in each country, and travelled around the school to learn about all manner of different subjects and countries.

They visited lots of different countries and learned about lots of different topics, including:

  • Panama – Pupils played a game called ‘Uno, Dos, Tres, Queso!’ (One, Two, Three, Cheese!) which is similar to What’s the time, Mr. Wolf!
  • Puerto Rico – The Coqui frog, which is unique for not having webbed feet and for being smaller than a human thumb!
  • Argentina – The Toucan and its life in the Argentine rainforest, as well as painting the Argentine flag
  • Peru – The Nazca lines, a series of huge ancient geoglyphs in the Nazca Desert!
  • Venezuela – Angel Falls, the world’s highest uninterrupted waterfall
  • Bolivia – Pupils made miniatures, which are small versions of the maker’s dreams, made in the hopes that the gods will convert the miniatures to real-life versions of themselves
  • Guatemala – Worry Dolls, which are small dolls made to take the maker’s worries and ease their mind!
  • Spain – pupils learned about abstract painting and created their own Picasso-inspired drawings
  • Ecuador – pupils learned about animals from the Amazon rainforest, including monkeys, frogs and birds!

Pupils loved their travels, with so much to see and do along the way! Thank you to all of the staff for arranging such wonderful and interesting activities for our travellers
