Spanish Workshop at Churston Grammar School
On Tuesday 17th May 7 children, (4 from Year 5-Danielle, Ella, Maddison and Roxanna and 3 from Year 4- Jillian, Kieran and Sebi) visited Churston Grammar School to attend a morning’s Spanish Workshop run by Mrs Valenza- Bright, the Head of Modern Foreign Languages at the school. The children had a lot of fun whilst working very hard at improving their Spanish skills. Both Mrs Valenza-Bright and I were very impressed with their impeccable behaviour, work –ethic and their knowledge of Spanish!
Thank you to everyone who came to our homework and book share session. The children love to have a wider audience with which to share their hard work. We were all particularly impressed with the high quality homework that came into school and with how imaginative the children had been with it! It was good to have a designated time to share some our books with you too. Please remember that parents are welcome to come and share any books with their children at the end of a school day - you do not need an appointment as the teacher does not need to be there for your child to share their books with you.
Spanish - January 2018
On 11th January Matthew Keirman came in to visit us. He is studying GCSE German at Torquay Boys' Grammar School and used to come to this school. He loves learning German and showed us photos of his visit to Germany and Austria last year. He taught us some German and we played some games.
We thought it was 'Sehr Gut und Wunderbar!' (Very good and wonderful!)
