We have been involved in a eTwinning project called 'Christmas Around the World'.
The aim of this project was to share with our students how Christmas is celebrated in other countries around the world. Through doing this, each participating country put together a presentation that demonstrated Christmas celebrations, typical dishes and recipes, traditional carols and further information specific to our country at Christmas.
In addition to this, the children of Year 3, 4 and 5 also made their own Christmas Cards that were sent to Spain and in return, we received some from them!
It has been a great project to be a part of and the children have thoroughly enjoyed receiving the Christmas Cards from different schools around the world and learning bits about each country.
The children wish to keep this connection with other schools around the World.

In Spain, on New Year's Eve (Nochevieja) or 'The Old Night' in Spain. One special tradition is that you eat 12 grapes with the 12 strokes of the clock at Midnight! Each grape represents a month of the coming year, so if you eat the twelve grapes, you are said to be lucky in the new year.
