Year 7 and Year 8 Spanish Trip 2017

The Spanish Department was thrilled to take pupils from Year 7 and 8 on an educational trip Andalucia - España. Pupils were given many opportunities to immerse themselves fully in its culture, and visit places of great historical and cultural interest. We packed a lot into these days, and every day created opportunities for our pupils to converse in the native language with different tasks set!

Hannah Goldsmith (7Story), Izzy Schoenig (7 Ridgeway) and Elizabeth Morrow (7Ridgeway) gave this report on their time away. “We ate our packed lunches before buying ice-creams and drinks using our Spanish speaking skills. We then got on the hop on tour bus, which gave us a tour of the beautiful city. We learnt a lot about its Muslim and Christian history, while seeing the amazing sights. We then went back to the hotel and straight to dinner. After a full packed day we were all pretty tired and went off to bed.

“On the second day we woke up for an early breakfast, before packing lunch and going off sightseeing. We first went to Mijas, where some of us went on a horse-drawn tour around the city, while the rest walked around and bought souvenirs. We then went to a harbour and bought ice-creams and more souvenirs, before going to Rhonda where we used our Spanish knowledge to write a postcard to Mr Taunt in Spanish. At a café we ate ‘churros’ before heading back for our Flamenco lesson.”

Richard Chapman (8Ridgeway) also went on the trip, “I learnt how to say a lot of simple Spanish language, such as how to order food and how to ask someone out. It was the best and funniest holiday of my life. I loved it.” Maisie Tate (8Sherborne) summed up everyone’s feelings about their time in Spain, “I learnt how to speak to Spanish people and order food in Spanish. We had such a great time and every part of it was amazing.”
