Miss Pulman can retire now...

Miss Pulman could have gone and enjoyed a cup of tea this afternoon because Chaska had the teaching covered!

As we have been celebrating diversity this week I thought it would be nice for Room 10 to learn to speak some words in a different language. This was a great opportunity for Chaska to teach us how pronounce the colours in Spanish.

She came up the front and read out the words and then we had a try. Chaska was very good at giving us feedback on how well we were pronouncing the words!
We learned that the letter j is pronounced as an 'h' sound in words such as  red /rojo.
The trickest word to say was  anaranjado/orange. We need some more practise with that!










Here are the words we learned

blanco/white

negro/black

azul/blue

rosado/pink

rojo/red

verde/green

amarillo/yellow

anaranjado/orange

morado/purple

cafe/brown

gris/grey

claro/light

oscuro/dark


Thank you for your expertise Chaska!


















Chaska said there were variations for some colour names too.
