Skylarks have been corresponding with children in a school in Madrid, Spain!
Year 4 children have had the opportunity to bring their Spanish learning to life, through a pen pal project. They have been partnered up with children aged 8-9 at the British Council Teaching Centre in Madrid. The children at both schools have been able to practise their Spanish and English reading and writing skills by sending letters to each other. They have learnt to write questions such as '¿Cuál es tu color preferido?' - What is your favourite colour? and '¿Cuántos años tienes?' - How old are you? in order to get to know their pen pals. They have also eagerly responded to their pen pal's questions.
The children have really enjoyed building new friendships with children in a different culture, finding similarities and differences between their new friends and themselves.
"María said she liked my drawing!" exclaimed Melisa.
"She's got such neat handwriting!" noticed Caitlyn.
"Both of our birthdays are in October!" realised Jude.
"When can we write back to them?" asked the class, excitedly.
