Upper Prep try tapas tasting

By Señora Booker, 10 February 2020

This term in Spanish lessons Upper Prep have been learning about traditional dishes such as paella and Spanish ham. Señora Booker brought in a variety of food which girls tasted, including aceitunas (olives), tortilla (Spanish omelette) and chorizo. Everyone was encouraged to try something new and some girls had thirds and even fourths! The most popular foods were gazpacho (cold tomato soup), Manchego cheese and Doritos with salsa.

Following on from food-tasting, Upper Prer reflected on the dishes and chose a favourite food to write a poem about. Some girls managed to write an acrostic poem. They thought about the taste, colour, texture and how to eat it, amongst other things. There will soon be a Spanish food display board put up showcasing many of the girls’ work.

Buen trabajo, Upper Prep!
