For Christmas Around the World, Year 4 learned about Mexico. To begin with, we made paper lanterns to decorate our classroom ready for our Posada party (a Mexican tradition where children knock at their neighbours’ houses pretending to Mary and Joseph, asking if there’s room at the inn). We learned about what Mexican people eat at Christmastime and tried some traditional champurrado, which is a spiced hot chocolate. We also tasted some nachos, salsa and refried beans. We ended our party with a Mexican party essential – piñata! It was a brilliant afternoon and we even learned some Spanish too!

Feliz Navidad everyone!
