Dancers grace Ilford school in flamenco outfits
THE SOUND of little feet in Spanish dancing shoes raced through the hall at Uphall Primary School last week.
Youngsters at the school in Uphall Road, Ilford, immersed themselves in Spanish cultureup for Spain day, which celebrated the country through song, dance and food.
Professional guitar players came to serenade parents and pupils to finish the day which embraced all things Spain.
Spanish teacher Siobhan Ferrandes said: “We incorporated Spanish language lessons through songs, to make it easier to learn.
“They had a range of Spanish food tasting sessions, and got the chance to eat paella and tortillas.” The pupils, aged between seven and nine, were told to dress in bright colours or flamenco dresses to celebrate the day.

The country was incorporated into each of their lessons, before getting together for singing and dancing together at the end of the day.
“They made a fantastic effort,” said Mrs Ferrandes. “In the summer term we will be having a Mexico day.”
