The children did really well on their prueba (test) today and made some splendid tarjetas de navidad (Christmas cards). I hope you all like your turrón!
Feliz navidad y un próspero año nuevo a todos. x
Luces de Navidad en Madrid (Christmas lights in Madrid)
The children did a great job remembering the phrases we learnt last week and could tell me what time they do things on school days. They learnt the word for Christmas Day (Día de Navidad) in Spanish and could also tell me what time they got up and had breakfast on this special day. After that we learnt all about Christmas in Spain (which is quite different!) and did a tricky crossword puzzle to learn some Spanish words related to Christmas.
1. What happens on 6th January in Spain?
2. What is a ‘jota’?
3. Why is the cow important for Spanish people at Christmas?
4. When do the Spanish have their Christmas meal?

The children did a great job of remembering the daily routine phrases they learnt last class and even learnt a few more.
Bajo a la cocina – I go down to the kitchen
Pongo mi chaqueta – I put my jacket on.
Cojo mi mochila – I get my school bag
Salgo – I leave the house.
We revisited time again and made sure that we knew the difference between the following
Las siete – 7 o’clock
Son las siete – It’s 7 o’clock
a las siete – at 7 o’clock
