This last week of the term has been very exciting.
On Wednesday morning, Nightingales had a surprise,
We got a video call from Spain!

Our Pen Pal friends from Madrid called us and we got to ask them different questions in Spanish and they asked questions in English!

I hope we can call them back soon!

Have a lovely half term!

Spanish Assembly - The importance of languages

Last Friday, KS2 had their Spanish Assembly, they were amazing!

We spoke about the importance of learning a second language. 

All the school had their hands up for answering questions in Spanish! 

We had a role play in Spanish asking for food in a restaurant.

We learnt that, at school, we speak 27 languages and they are all very important!

-Learning languages makes you smarter,
-Increases your brain capacity and memory,
-Makes you understand different cultures,
-and you can travel!

We also played the song of Moana in 24 languages:

I hope you enjoyed!

Guitar performance

Liliana has been learning to play the guitar out of school.  This week she brought in her guitar to play to her class and to play in our music assembly.  She has only been learning since January but has clearly worked very hard as she sounded fantastic!  Well done Liliana!

Los transportes

In Year 4 Nightingales, we are learning about transports!
Today we had so much fun playing ¿QuĂ© tengo en el coco?

We had to ask questions in Spanish to guess what transport was on our head!
