Carnaval is coming to Aitken Creek in term 2!

Hola!

During term 1 we leant about how Carnaval is celebrated across the Spanish-speaking world and worked very hard preparing to celebrate it in term 2!

We are proud that we are working across different subjects to make sure our school looks fantastic and we have great performances to showcase what we have learnt.

During week 2 there will be a number of performances during lunch times and the special event in on Thursday April 21! The whole school will meet at the gym during session 5, and parents are welcome to attend too!

Students can dress up on Thursday for the fiesta and dress up parade. Bring happy colourful clothes or costumes!

Thanks to Sirin and Tanya from 5C for their wonderful artwork for the poster.

This term is so much fun!

We are using our words in Spanish to say how we feel about different events… for example, how we may feet at a fiesta!

Feliz

¿Cómo estás? ¡Feliz! / How are you feeling? Happy!

In blue group in Performing Arts and in Spanish we are learning a traditional dance from the Andes in south American, and making chapchas (o chajchas), a traditional instrument of South American indigenous people normally made of goats’ toenails! but ours are nicer and we don’t hurt any animals.
