For Nourish and Flourish Day Señora Opazo and Mr Bartold with the students made “Churros y Chocolate.” Churros are a golden fritter of pastry that’s deep fried and eaten warm. A Spanish favourite, churros make a delcious dessert but are eaten traditionally in Spain for breakfast. Churros are the ultimate treat to have with a mug of hot chocolate or dipped in a little melted chocolate. Señora Opazo and Mr Bartold with the help of Señora Opazo’s daughter Viviana made over 150 churros to share with students and staff. It was an “Fantastico” effort. Well done! The students and staff enjoyed the Spanish taste experience.
Jordan (6/7RV) – It was a good experience. They tasted delicious!
Sweata (6/7RV) – It was crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. I would definitely eat them again.
Hayley (6/7IB) – It was a fantastic time and I really enjoyed it.
Amity (6/7IB) – It was a good learning experience.
Please enjoy this You tube site on how to make Churros.
The Year 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7’s have been participating in a series of oral language games. It has been lots of fun to see the students working together to develop their fluency in Spanish.
During Week 2 the Receptions, Year 1’s and Year 2’s have been learning the colours in Spanish. The students have been playing games, dancing and singing songs. We have had lots of fun learning the colours! Please enjoy the photos and video of the children participating in the class activities.
This is the song that the children have been singing in Spanish. Please enjoy listening to it with you child. You can learn the colours together!
In Spanish, students have been looking at Spain’s geography and culture. We discussed the most famous cities in Spain. Learning about other countries and cultures can be exciting! Students contributed lots of prior information to the discussion. This inquiry allowed for students to have a cultural awareness and appreciation of Spain.
During Term 2, students have been encouraged to incorporate many of the classroom requests that are used regularly in the room into Spanish.
For example: ¿Puedo ir al baño por favor? Can I go to the bathroom please?
¿Puedo ir a tomar agua por favor? Can I please have a drink?
¿Como se dice …….en español? How do you say …… in Spanish?
These key phrases allow for students to be immersed in the Spanish language.
Students have played oral language games with partners or with the class, as they revise or learn for the first time these phrases.
Mother’s Day is a day that is celebrated around the world. Each country has a unique date for their holiday and sometimes a unique meaning. For example, in Mexico it is celebrated on May 10th. In Spain, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the first Sunday of May.
In most countries, the common theme is to celebrate the contributions mothers make to the family and to the world.
In Spain, Mother’s Day is a day that children truly look forward to. They enjoy showing their mothers how much they mean to them by making crafts such as cards, writing poems and celebrating Mother’s Day with their mum and family.
Students had an opportunity to examine the way Mother’s Day is celebrated in Spain. They were introduced to the traditions and significance that “El Dia de las Madres” plays in Spanish culture.
