Macedonia de frutas! Fruit Salad!

We continued learning the Spanish fruits today; we played games and sang songs to help us remember them. Mrs Nadin asked us 'Te gusta las fresas?' and 'Es bueno para la salud?'  We read a Spanish rhyme, 'A la una' that helped us to revisit los numeros 1-10.   

Our Spanish estrella de la semana…

El pequeno Tomas

This week in Spanish we read a story called El pequeno Tomas.  As we read and listened to the story, we recognised lots of words from our Spanish learning over the past weeks.  Mrs Nadin was so impressed with our recall and how we used what we already knew to predict and work out sentences from…

Roles and responsibilities

We started our new jigsaw puzzle today in PSHE; Relationships.  The 'connect us' part of the lesson was so funny and a real challenge; we had to mime an everyday action but when the person next to us asked us 'hello, what are you doing?' we had to answer with a different action but still miming…
