On Friday 2nd December, Randal Cremer Primary School launched our first Spanish Day of the academic year.
We were each given a country to find out information about them, such as what food they like, where it is in the world etc, even how they celebrated Christmas! We wore the colours of the flags. We looked so colourful! There was bunting in the playground and we discussed which countries they were! “This is Panama! That’s our country we are learning about!” said a child in Highbury and Islington. During playtime, Canonbury children told Mrs Spinks that people in Ecuador ate Guinea pigs! We did have a giggle!
After play we were listening to Kentish Town’s amazing assembly about how Christmas is celebrated around the world! Then we sang ‘Feliz Navidad!’ altogether! Will played on the guitar, and we sang beautifully! We looked fabulous in all our different Spanish speaking colours!
During lunchtime, Karen cooked us a lovely Spanish dinner, with Potatas Bravas (spicy potatoes) and Spanish chicken with paprika, olives and peppers. Thank you Karen! It was delicious! A child, Ruben, in Highbury and Islington said “It tastes exquisite!”
Finally we spent the rest of the day singing songs and learning new Spanish vocabulary. What a really fun day! I can’t wait for the next one in Spring!
