Home Economics and Spanish students from Years 8-10 spent the last four days of the spring term in Spain, experiencing the delights of Barcelona. Our pupils took part in a number of cultural activities and visits, designed to reinforce classroom-based learning by giving students experiences not available in the classroom. Students explored Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter and Boquería Market on Las Ramblas, the best known market in Spain, where they found a wide variety of local produce, as well as foods from all over the world. Pupils spent a morning at one of Barcelona’s top cookery schools, learning how to cook traditional Spanish tapas and had the opportunity to sample the dishes they had produced for their lunch. We paid a visit to a chocolate museum, Barcelona Aquarium and the Nou Camp stadium, home to Barcelona Football Club, including a tour of the stadium itself, with a chance to walk out onto the pitch, as well as a visit to the museum which charts the team’s history. Students also visited Sagrada Familia, Antoni Gaudi’s unique, awe-inspiring cathedral and a trip in the Montjuic cable car to take in breathtaking views of the city. A fantastic time was had by both students and teachers.
