Our second call of duty

On Monday we sang to the very tiny children at Bigastrin and were lucky that none of them cried. Yesterday, we were at La Paz to sing to the infants.

As an addition, we also read a story to each of the two age ranges. Pam and Christopher were chosen to read “Caillou” to the younger children and one of the Spanish ladies from the other classes read “Luces” to the older ones. As I have said on my Flickr project, Pam did a sterling job showing that her skills as an infant teacher have not left her. Christopher had a more difficult job following her but managed to sound very Spanish.

I think we all sang with gusto yesterday, perhaps because the weather was better. Although it was really cold, it was dry and sunny which made us all feel a whole lot better.

Even though there were only five Brits joined by Ana and one of the Spanish ladies, we managed to cheer the children up with “Jingle Bells” and our rendering of “O Come All Ye Faithful” to the older children was positively heart warming.

So, having brought the spirit of Christmas to the young children of Bigastro and given them treats as a reward, today we will collect our reports for this term.
