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 called “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 this 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 carried on practicing introducing ourselves saying: Hello, How are you? Well, bad, ok “
“Hola! ¿Cómo estás? ¿Qué tal? Bien, mal, regular”
