To celebrate “European Day of Languages” which is annually on 26 Sept, the P5s, who are learning Spanish this year, were asked to come to school dressed in the colours of the Spanish flag or in Spanish dresses & bring along anything Spanish, e.g. castanets, Spanish fans, etc.
We had great fun learning about Spanish culture, especially flamenco dancing. Señora Ferguson taught 7 different flamenco movements : rhythmic stamps, clapping, wrist movements, etc. We watched a short video of Spanish children learning flamenco dancing & joined in. Then we choreographed our own little flamenco routines with a partner to the music of “Despacito” (the totally Spanish version, of course)!
¡Estupendo! ¡Fantástico! ¡Muy bien!
