Burlington Infant Spanish - Progress Report

CLUB BURLINGTON INFANT SCHOOL
TEACHER: Carmen López-Martín
WINTER TERM 2019

Our aim is to ensure children understand and learn to love the Spanish language and to gain good
listening and speaking skills. We use role play, games, bingos, songs and activities to make the Spanish
culture both enjoyable and memorable.
It is a pleasure to teach your children and I hope they enjoy it as much as we do. If you have specific
questions, please see me after the club or send an email to max@childrensclubs.com

TOPICS COVERED THIS TERM
This term we have been learning about the Epiphany, in Spain on the 6 TH of January children wait for
the Three Wise Men,“Los Reyes Magos”, to bring the presents. They come the night before to every
city and village in Spain in parades call “Cabalgatas” and through sweets, “caramelos”, at the children
lining the streets. There is an old saying that naughty children would get coal “carbón” instead of
presents, but these days you can buy a sweet that looks like “carbón” in the shops, very popular now.
I got some for the children to try.
We have been learning and practicing to introduce ourselves saying: Hello, How are you? Well, bad,
ok. “Hola! ¿Cómo estás? ¿Qué tal? Bien, mal, regular.”
