On Friday morning, we had a Spanish Flamenco Christmas Fiesta in Year 4.
We taught the children a popular Christmas Carol, called the VILLANCICO DE GLORIA, which tells the story of Mary & Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem.
We had so much fun and got truly into the spirit of ALEGRE and JALEO, the Andalusian way. The children not only did themselves proud, through learning and fluently singing three verses of the carol and choruses totally in Spanish with passion, but also learned about the rhythms of PALMERAS ( Hand clapping) and BAILE ( Flamenco dance steps). We added percussion too. It was a beautiful thing. OLE !
