REQM Silver Award

The new year in school means a new topic. We are going to explore Spain as cyclists taking part in La Vuelta. During this race through Spain, we will focus on learning about Andalucia, Valencia and the Cantabrian mountains. Tapas will feature highly in the journey to discover more about the Spain's food, drink and farming. Children are going to invent their own tapas using Spanish style ingredients after tasting a variety of foods to see which they enjoy the most. During mapwork, the children will appreciate the diversity in this country's landscape and how it is optimised to provide food for export too. 

This term we will also read 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes as a class book. The children love this story as it provides many opportunities for exciting writing and discussion.

I would be most appreciative if the children could bring anything of interest connected with Spain to school e.g. books, maps, leaflets, Spanish dolls, Spanish themed storybooks etc.
