Flamenco, paella and sangria for Spanish day at Chadwell Heath school
Children at a Chadwell Heath school brought a holiday feel to class with a Spanish day on Wednesday.
St Bede’s Catholic Primary school pupils made non-alcoholic sangria, tried flamenco dancing and ate paella and wore national dress.
For the grand finale, the whole school danced the Macarena in the playground at the end of the day.
The Spanish fiesta was organised by teacher Montse Waobikeze.
She said: “It was a really fun day. We do it every year and each year it gets better and better.”
