Tapas, por favor…

Year 6 reckon that language lessons should be fun, and have a practical – and if possible, tasty – purpose.   So, since they had been learning the names of different Spanish food items and putting them into sentences,  Mrs Barber thought it would be a good idea to try out ‘la gastronomia Espanola’ .  Judging by the facial expressions, some items were apparently tastier than others!
