Years 5 and 6 have been trying out some French and Spanish food as part of their languages courses. Year 5 have been studying “breakfast” as their French topic this term, and last Wednesday they started their day with un petit déjeuner français. They ate baguette with butter and jam, and could choose between orange and apple juice, milk and hot chocolate, and un croissant or un pain au chocolat. Madame Dodd and Madame Short were the waitresses, but would only serve people who placed their order in French!
Meanwhile Year 6 have been studying food in their Spanish lessons, and today the meeting room was transformed into a tapas bar. The children tried six different Spanish snacks and gave their opinions (in Spanish of course) on albóndigas (meatballs), chorizo con aceitunas (sausage with olives), manchego con tomates (cheese and tomato), pan de aceitunas (olive bread), patatas bravas (potatoes in spicy tomato sauce) and zumo de fruta (fruit juice). They have also been practising their “polite language”, so are all set for any summer holidays in Spain.
