Here’s a lovely Key Stage 2 Spanish display for Spring based on the the QCA Spanish KS2 Unit La Primavera.
Lisa says:
The pupils were given an extract of the poem La Primavera by Antonio Machado and rewrote it, giving the daisy a different role.
The extract from the poem was adapted by the pupils, replacing the words highlighted with their own place and role for the daisy (la margarita)

La Primavera
Pupils replaced the word for place, une escuella (a school), with their own choices such as una piscina (a pool), un parque (a park) un supermarcado (a supermarket)

Then una maestra ( a teacher) was changed to la salvavidas-the lifeguard, la dependienta – the shopassistant, la recepcionista – the receptionist etc

The children’s work is really delightful and they’ve obviously taken a lot of pride in producing it.

Healthy Eating Display – A taste of Spain 5

Fruit and Veg – A taste of Spain 1, originally uploaded by LindaH.

This stunning classroom display from Mrs Littman’s Year 5 class at Kingston Primary in Benfleet, Essex won a first prize of £2000 in the Taste of Spain collage competition for UK Primary schools. I strongly suspect a Teaching Assistant might have been very busy with this display 🙂 I hope she had a group helping. It’s amazing what you can do with crepe paper and it’s not nearly as time consuming as you might think.
My own favourite came from Mrs Greisens’ Year 3 class at Warren Road Primary, Orpington in Kent. This came second and won £1000 for the school. It had slightly more obvious pupil involvement I think. Some of the fruit is cut from magazines, other bits have been painted and cut out, then dried stuff has been stuck on top. I love the pictures round the edge of this one of the kids trying all the different fruit.

There was whole pack of resources to go with this competition. They looked great and would be just the thing to go with Healthy Eating week. I hope they put them online again next year as they are running the competition again in 2008. The standard of displays was not impossibly high and I hope many more schools enter classroom displays next year .
