Spanish Christmas Fiesta!

On Monday morning, we had a Spanish Flamenco Christmas Fiesta in Year 5.
We learned a popular Christmas Carol, called the VILLANCICO DE GLORIA, which tells the story of Mary & Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem. We had so much fun and got truly into the spirit of ALEGRE and JALEO, the Andalucian way.

We really did ourselves proud, not only through learning and fluently singing three verses of the carol and choruses totally in Spanish with passion, but also we learned about the rhythms of PALMERAS (Hand clapping) and BAILE ( Flamenco dance steps). We even had a FLAMENCO DANCE OFF between boys and girls, led by Mr Sharp and Mrs Bean. We added percussion too; it was a beautiful thing. OLE !
