Christmas is a busy time in a school, and there was a lot going on with productions, concerts and end of term activities. However, Year 3 were working hard in their Spanish lessons.
They made Christmas bauble cards to send to our eTwinning partners, wriitng vocabulary in Spanish and English on strips that were joined with a split pin at either end so that, when they arrived at their destination, they could be fanned out into a bauble and hung on a tree.
|And they enjoyed a Christmas themed story in Spanish about a tiny robin - el pequeño petirrojo - who embodied the true spirit of Christmas, giving away all his vests to other animals in need and ending up with no vests to keep himself warm.
They listened to the story, joining in with the repeated sections in which the animals said "Tengo frío" and the petirrojo replied "Aquí tiene" They then took on the roles of the characters in the story including Papá and Mamá Noel, using the cuddly toys and knitted vests to support them, and enjoyed acting out the story. They even had a special guest star in the form of Beef our visiting mascot from the Ukraine.
