Since last term, Highclare Preparatory School children in Year 2 have been taking turns to share Spanish activity bags with their families at home. The bags contain a dictionary, a DVD of a film set in a Spanish speaking country, some play Euro currency, a bingo game, a bilingual story and some Spanish recipes.
The intention is for children to develop their intercultural understanding and have fun trying new experiences with their families. Every child will have the opportunity to take a bag home before the end of the year.
So far, it has proved very popular and parents have shared some wonderful photos with Ms Kenny. She said “I have received some lovely feedback about the activity bags from parents and children. Apparently there has been some very competitive bingo games, but I’m pleased to say the children seem to be winning!”
