Today was European Day of Languages and Year 7 looked at the country of Spain. We located Spain on a map, looked at places to visit, Spanish food and famous people from the country. We investigated the work of Pablo Picasso and drew portraits in the style of Picasso and Cubism. We also tasted olives, Spanish omelette and Paella with chicken and chorizo. The Paella was a favourite !!
Later in the day we use Red hat thinking to express our opinions about the annual Bull Run in Pamplona.
The Victorians had a great influence on the present day because they were amazing inventors. Year 7 are also great inventors. They have used construction materials to build items with gears, pulleys and levers. Like Isambard Kingdom Brunel, they will be bridge building next. Have a look at our World Around Us page below.
