Carnival Time in La Palma
Ms Humanes went to visit El Roque School during half-term. They were busy with Carnival preparations. The school was decorated with masks that the children had made from recycled materials; they were all really excited.
Ms Humanes and Rosangeles, the English teacher, decided that our next joint activity would be to do some cooking of traditional sweets from both countries and video the process. In the next few weeks, the children from St Agatha's (KS2) will be making 'rosquetes', which are a little bit like donuts and 'torrijas' which are similar to French toast; both are eaten at Carnival time in La Palma.
We will be sending out a two recipes for the children in El Roque to make. Yum!
Paddy Bear is having a lovely time in La Palma. He has visited the first ever McDonalds that opened on the island in July. He has enjoyed going to the beach, which the children here noticed had black sand, and going camping in the mountains.
