Spanish celebrations

 
This week has been full of Spanish traditions and culture. On Tuesday, we celebrated San Isidro. Chulapos and Chulapas were everywhere in sight! The children were adorable in their costumes, especially when they paired up to learn the traditional ‘Chotis’ dance of Madrid. We finished the day off with our favourite chocolate and churros merienda and a Spanish tortilla competition for parents (judged by our willing team of staff).
A huge thank you to our Spanish staff for putting in lots of effort to make it such an enjoyable day for everyone.
 
 




Learning about vertebrates

 
Very impressive projects from our Year 2's who are learning about vertebrates in Spanish class. The children became the teachers whilst showing off their creative work and teaching each other all about the different types of animals and creatures.
 




We love Books!

 
This week in school we are celebrating book week! We started off with a fancy dress day where the children and teachers dressed up as their favourite book character. We got to see all of the different characters in assembly. There were lots of characters from Harry potter, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland and many more. We also had special certificates for the most creative costumes. Yesterday we had a storytelling afternoon where parents and children listened to stories read by our teachers. We are excited to enjoy the rest of the week with lots of fun reading activities!
 




Los Bomberos Madrid

 
This week we had the firefighters of Madrid in school teaching the children all about fire hazards and safety. They had lots of fun watching the teachers dress up as firefighters at the end. A big thank you to Los Bomberos for taking time to come out to our school.
 




Parents book look

 
It's nice for parents to get the chance to see their children's work. Yesterday we had our first ever Book Look for parents. The children were super excited to show their parents all their hard work and parents were amazed at how the children have progressed since the start of the year. It was an enjoyable evening for everyone.
