As part of the week the youngsters were taught flamenco dancing in a special dance lesson.

Modern foreign languages teacher Joanne Pringle said: “I decided to plan Spanish week as it is a lively and fun culture, which is how we try and plan all of our lessons at Cragside.

“It’s all about achieving through enjoyment.

“The children have loved all the activities, there has been a real buzz around the school, and they have learned a great deal about the world around them.”

Pupils from Cramlington Learning Village teamed up with the school to help teach the children basics of the language through stories and songs.
