Long time no blog, eh? Life's been rather hectic over the last week or so - and I really should blog about it!! However, thought I'd flag up this opportunity as it has just arrived in my inbox and looks great!
The Consejería de Educación, in collaboration with the Instituto Cervantes Londres, has arranged a full day of activities for teachers of Spanish in primary schools. Taking place on Friday March 27th at The Instituto Cervantes, the day looks packed like 'una lata de sardinas' with fun and examples of good practice, with workshops on things like storytelling, food, CLIL, .. showcases and a performance of a play written and produced for children who are learning Spanish in KS1 and KS2. And all for £25!
It doesn't matter if your Spanish isn't brilliant as the email stated -
'The whole event will be friendly to teachers with a limited competence in Spanish.'You can download details of the day, the programme and abstracts of the sessions here on the Consejeria site.
Despite living in Birmingham, I'm seriously considering going, as the sessions on storytelling, extending writing, five minute activities and starters for the Spanish classroom all look very interesting - and that's just from a curspry glance. Added to which, I'd love to see El viaje de Matilde presented by A cuerpo as I blogged about it a while back and, now that we have a new Head at school, now might be the time to plant my suggestion...
Closing date for applications to attend is March 16th so if you fancy it, why not ask your manager if you can attend?
