In Year 5 pupils have the option of attending a weekly Spanish Club in the Summer term.
On Thursday June 16th a group of Year 6 pupils, who took part in Spanish Club in their Year 5 (2009/2010) attended a Spanish Workshop Day as part of a series of Global Weeks celebrated by British Airways at their Community Learning Centre, Waterside, Harmondsworth. The workshops included a pretend flight using the mock cabin, the environment of Spain, tile painting, flamenco dancing, comparing Spanish Culture to British Culture and of course a Languages session!
Pupils created some amazing designs for their tiles and learned the first steps of flamenco to some great Spanish tunes, including the Macarena! They sang Karaoke in the Spanish language session and learned about migrating birds in the environmental session. Cuckoos fly over Spain to Africa each year and deserts and mountains form part of the landscape in Spain!
The pupils made their own passports in preparation for the flight in the mock cabin, where they could dress up as cabin crew and serve food and drink, and simulate taking off and landing by stomping their feet!
A great day was had by all and we hope to participate in Global Week again in the future.
