Spanish session with Ms Perez

We are really happy to work and build strong connections with the Reach Free School.

This Wednesday,  Miss Perez, the Spanish language teacher at Reach Free, organised a session that was delivered by some of her Spanish students at Maple Cross.  Our children had the opportunity to work as a group, as a pair and individually to explore the Spanish language and culture. There were stickers for the winners and little treats for all the participants.

It was a SUCCESS and we are really looking forward to organising more sessions in the future!
