It was Mexican Day in Chaffinches this week! The children fully immersed themselves in Mexican tradition to celebrate all the learning that has taken place during their Mexico topic this term.
The children came dressed in Mexican attire, including ponchos, sombreros, Day of the Dead costumes and even a cactus outfit! In the morning the children prepared a Mexican feast, including chilli, guacamole and cheesy nachos, all made from scratch by their own fair hands! Once the food was ready they sat down to enjoy their meal together as a class. They even did all of the washing-up!
In the afternoon they learnt a tradition Mexican dance; The Mexican Hat Dance. They then performed this to the rest of the school before settling down to watch the Day of the Dead inspired film Coco.
Thank you to the parents / carers who provided such excellent outfits.
