Feliz Navidad

 On a trip to Sheffield, we missed the train by one minute. So we quickly got seats in the small waiting room to keep warm. Opposite us sat a man with a small child, we quickly noticed he was chatting in Spanish. At first I thought he was telling him about the train, but as we listened, not that we normally eavesdrop this much, we heard words we knew (zapatos, for one) and finally we worked out he was telling the story of Cinderella in Spanish.
Days like this make me realise how much children can learn in the real world. There is so much to be seen and heard, so many great people who will take the time to chat and pass on their knowledge.

That week's Spanish lesson had a Christmas theme, so in preparation we made Spanish cake toppers with a festive feel.

 el acebo = holly

 el pavo = turkey

 arbol de Navidad = Christmas tree

angel = angel!
We found this website great for Spanish festive words
as there is pronunciation too!

Cupcakes look great positioned in the shape of a Christmas tree.

We also listened to some Christmas carols on youtube, this is a great way for children to pick up words in another language.

Feliz Navidad!
