News from the Spanish Department

GamesOur partner school from Spain, Nuryana School, paid us a visit at the beginning of May and we were extremely happy to host them and spend the whole day together.  We had 140 Spanish students and a lovely group of Spanish teachers. Our Year 8 enjoyed doing language activities with them but the highlight of the day was that they got to meet their pen pals in person.

The weather was fantastic so we ended the day teaching them how to play rounders and making an art project to decorate our classrooms. Our members of the International Team played an important role making sure that everything run smoothly and keeping everyone happy. Well done!

We have been doing this for three years now so we decided to take a group photo together to mark our tradition. It was so many of us that it was a challenge to fit everyone in!

We are already planning our visit to their school in Tenerife this June. We cannot wait to experience a day in a Spanish school!

Mafalda pictures 2024Year 7 started studying Spanish this half term and took part on a language competition called "Mafalda". Quino was an Argentinian illustrator whose comics were very famous around the world. His main character was a very intelligent and rebel girl called "Mafalda". Students in Year 7 have learnt about the Mafalda comics and the messages of peace and love that Mafalda has been spreading around the world for many years.

The winner of the competition was Effie Watson in 7Sherborne - congratulations Effie! Effie's creation was not only beautiful, it also has her favourite Mafalda's quote.

Mafalda 3We are giving the best Mafaldas in the whole year to our partner school in Spain so their students in Year 7 can start to know us better. We are sure the Spanish students will love their present!

Mrs E López Gamero, Team Leader of Spanish & International School Coordinator
