Olé! Olé! El día de la alegría española! (Spanish Joy Day)

The theme for Joy Day this half term was Spanish. The children wore the colours yellow and red of the Spanish flag. Cristina, a Spanish teacher came to work with all the classes doing a Flamenco workshop. She wore the traditional dress of the Flamenco dancers and brought some Spanish flamenco objects to show. El mantón (Spanish shawl), el abanico (a fan) and castanets. Cristina talked about her costume, shoes etc before the children and staff joined her in some Flamenco moves! The Reception children especially enjoyed dancing to La Macarena!
