Promoting SMSC through Spanish at Kennington C of E Academy
On 7th September 2018, to introduce students to Spanish as our new MFL language this year, we held an Hispanic Day. The children took part in a variety of different workshops which celebrated the diversity of cultures and traditions from different Spanish-speaking countries around the world. They learnt how to prepare pico de gallo and guacamole from Mexico; churros from Spain; alfajores from Argentina. They took part in La Tomatina; made masks to celebrate the dia de muertos; they learnt the basic steps to dance flamenco and salsa; they were able to locate Spanish-speaking countries using an atlas and look for the capital cities; they also took part in a couple of quizzes answering questions about a wide range of topics all relating to the Spanish-speaking world. A fabulous day was had by all - students and staff! Watch this space for photos of the day!
