This afternoon, the two Year 4 classes got together to celebrate the beginning of the ADVENT Season and develop our Spanish and Music skills. We learnt a Spanish Flamenco Christmas Carol, called VILLANCICO DE GLORIA (which means’The Glory Carol). It was hugely enjoyable as we started the session by learning some basic Flamenco rhythms, using our ‘palmas’ ( clapping ) , as well as our feet to move to the beat and dance.
Once we had mastered the Flamenco rhythm, the challenging Spanish pronunciation and the song itself, we were adventurous and added percussion instruments to make our classroom into a ‘Fiesta de Navidad’ ( A Christmas Party).
We had ‘ mucho jaleo y alegre’ : OLE !
We hope you enjoy watching our video. You can also see us performing live with Years 5 and 6 at the KS2 Christmas Carol at the end of this term.
