Year 3 impressed Señora Stevens with their knowledge of Spain and Spanish. 3LS were able to tell her several countries other than Spain where Spanish is spoken, and quite a few seemed to have an encylopaedic knowledge of Spanish speaking footballers! 3JM were not to be outdone and had an enthusiastic discussion about churros and paella, and certainly win the prize for the most unusual facts about Spain that they shared. One was about a mislaid pencil case and another young man informed Señora Stevens that Spain has the biggest salt mountains in Europe. Intriguing! I wonder if these are the salt mountains he means? https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/cardona-salt-mountain They sound amazing!

Year 5 began their new topic with lots of singing! Singing is not everyone's cup of tea but both 5AG and 5MM joined in with Señora Stevens' selfpenned ode to the Simpsons, written from the point of view of Lisa, and soon knew how to talk about their parents' grandparents' aunts and uncles, and siblings in Spanish. Having done a bit of puzzling and sorting to work out a rule for deciding if a family word if masculine or feminine, the lesson ended with a spirited rendition of Tiburón Bebé which cuased great excitement and amusement not just in the classroom but also in the corridor as children waited for a meeting! Apologies to parents and families of Y5 who may be wishing Señora Stevens hadn't taught the children how to sing 'that song' in Spanish as well as English!
