I covered the labels so the students could then guess the following:

CiderThey got a point for each correct answer (alcohol percentage could be 0.2% either side and price 20 cents each side).

Spanish Tapas! 10th August

Yesterday we had our Spanish Tapas activity!!

I printed out a selection of recipes for the students to pick from, but our lovely Spanish student Gloria was on hand to take lead and tell everyone how tapas is really done!!

Everyone worked together and also in pairs or solo to make a few dishes.

We enjoyed Spanish omelette; Cheese, prosciutto and olive pintxos; Prawns; Patatas bravas; Stuffed peppers; Pan Con Tomate; Chorizo and Olives!

Next month for Spanish Cooking we’ll be making Paella!

Tie Dye! 3rd August

Last Thursday the students made Tie Dye tops; great for wearing around Byron Bay!

The first 10 students to sign up got a free top, and everyone else was welcome to bring along a white piece of clothing and also join in!

The method was quite simple (see below), with everyone having to wrap elastic bands around their swirled up tops, then apply a different color to each section!

Instructions

They then had to leave them for 4 hours to dry before they could see the results….

Which were great!! I’ve spotted quite a few of the students wearing theirs around school!

Juan, being the winner of his match against Bruno, then did just this to secure his place in the final!

Those also getting through to the final were:

Tobias VS Pierre: Tobias
