Burton Hathow Preparatory School
Lincoln LN1 2BB
This term has been packed full of lots of exciting activities.
Reception have worked really hard this term, on their writing and speaking skills, through our fairy-tale topic. We have read 3 little pigs (Tres Cerditos), little red riding hood (Caperucita roja) and the Billy goats gruff (Los tres chivitos gruff) , in Spanish. They have remembered the vocabulary so well and have even been able to retell the story using just pictures.
Year 1 focused on the topic of ‘The Rainbow Fish (El Pez Arcoiris), we learned about sea life and how to describe it using lots of new adjectives (colours/size etc..) The children began making their own slides to tell the story and are developing lovely pronunciation.
Year 2 have been learning classroom language, days, months and numbers to 31. This means a lot more every day Spanish speaking in the classroom! More recently we have been learning about Birthdays, how they are celebrated in Spain and how to describe our ideal Birthday party including making our own Birthday party invitations.
In Upper School we have done some amazing work. Year 3 have made their own animal story booklets, combining animal vocabulary with adjectives, some very tricky grammar and have done an outstanding job.
Year 4 are working on the topic of family and have created some amazing pieces of imaginative writing about their celebrity families.
Year 5 have continued to work hard on their free time topic, learning to extend their sentences to include as much detail as possible in their answers with some fantastic written work.
Year 6 have been looking at Spanish ‘Fiestas’ for their cultural topic. We have enjoyed learning about San Fermín, running with the bulls. The Tomatina festival and the Fería de Abril, it has really inspired them and we are really looking forward to visiting Spain in June.
French club has been hugely successful, we have covered phonics, numbers , dates, family and introductions and of course ended the term with a bit of French cuisine… Pain au Chocolat!
Well done on a fantastic term, I look forward to the next one and planning our Spanish Day out in the sunshine!
