Dia de los Reyes Magos

On 6th January each year, people in Spain celebrate Three Kings’ Day. Children wake up to find presents from the Kings, enjoy meals with their families and watch processions in the streets. After learning about how Spanish people celebrate Christmas and New Year, we made crowns!

European Day of Languages 2016

Ole! We looked estupendo in the colours of the Spanish flag for our Spanish-themed European Day of Languages celebrations today. We enjoyed a very busy morning taking part in a variety of Spanish activities. We were paired up with Year Two children and enjoyed:

Spanish dancing with Miss Burke!

After lunch, we learnt about the annual bull run in Pamplona, northern Spain. We decorated bull masks and recreated the bull run in the playground!
