This term, in Spanish, Year 2 learnt about Christmas traditions in Spain. They explored the main differences between English and Spanish culture.

Finally we learnt the Spanish Christmas song “Felix Navidad”
In this half term’s unit of work “Yo”, Year 3 learnt the names of various family members and how to describe the colour of eyes and hair. We practiced our knowledge by playing “Guess who” and we will now learn to present ourselves in Spanish by saying our name, age, number of siblings if any and describe our physical appearance in an oracy task.
