This half term, Year 5 will be learning all about Europe, with a particular focus on Spain. This topic will give the children the opportunity to explore their own country and where they live (Hampshire) and compare it to a popular region of Spain (the Costa Del Sol).
As a hook into our topic, Year 5 were lucky enough to have Anita and Ramon come in and teach us how to Flamenco!
Year 5 will then move on to looking at Spanish food. They will design a menu for a Spanish lunch at school, including the traditional tapas-style food traditionally served in Spain, which they will present to Paul, the cook. They will write the recipes for their chosen dishes and then have a day to prepare and cook their meals before tucking into a Spanish feast!
The topic will culminate in the children producing adverts for the two different areas in the style of ‘A Place in the Sun: Home or Away’ to see if they can persuade someone to choose one of these regions to live, Hampshire or the Costa Del Sol.
