Day 3 Erasmus+ project meeting - Spain

Day 3 saw our travelling teachers feeling tired but excited as they travelled to CEP Antonio de Ulloa once more. Mrs Harding and Señora Stevens started the day by sharing the work done by Y5 and 6 about places of interest in the United Kingdom, both local and national, as well as powerpoints that they had prepared on the subject to class 6B. The class were very interested in the information they were given and proceeded to work in three groups to complete a travel brochure about the UK.

There was an interesting session about the history of Cartagena delivered in the school hall before Señora Stevens was lured outside by the promise of some pottery making! Guided by a very patient potter, Señora Stevens threw her own 'Roman' vase with which she was very pleased. Mrs Harding hopes to have her turn tomorrow but for today she took photos as proof that Señora Stevens really made the vase and also that she pulls very funny faces when she is concentrating!

The morning activity then moved to the centre where the group had chocolate y churros in the square before visiting the Ayuntamiento or Town Hall. This was a privilege as you need special permission to visit. The group had an appointment to meet the Councillor in charge of education in Cartagena who was charming. Without any prior warning, Señora Stevens was asked if she would translate for the Councillor so that everyone could understand. There were people taking lots of pictures taken and also someone videoing it - and Mrs Harding wasn't going to let the moment go unrecorded either! A great honour to be asked but also a bit nervewracking. The Ayuntamiento is beautiful with very grand decoration and furniture, and a spectacular staircase.

After lunch by the sea, the group headed to La Manga which is a strip of land between Mar Menor and Mar Mayor to visit the Cabo de Palos lighthouse. Some of the group climbed to the top and the view was spectacular. And even for those who didn't, the sight of the calm sea as the sun went down was very peaceful and calming. It was lovely to spend more time together as a group of teachers, finding out about each others' countries; we even had an international singsong on the bus on the way back from the lighthouse!

Tomorrow, Mrs Harding and Señora Stevens are going to find out what 5B know about Britain and being British, and are going to Skype the children in Greece.

¡Hasta el jueves!
