Excellent Español

23 April 2021

One of our Year 7 pupils has been wowing our Modern Language teachers with his Spanish work.

Endriu, from 7K, was asked by Ms McConville to produce a piece of writing, in Spanish, about his school subjects and life at Westminster City School. Endriu’s work was so muy bien (very good), that Ms McConville shared it with our Subject Leader, Modern Languages, Ms Andrade. Both were highly impressed with his work.

Endriu, who travels from Mitcham to study at Westminster City School, said: “I like studying Spanish. I think it is important to learn other languages so that, when you visit those countries, you can communicate with people living there.”

¡Bien hecho Endriu! His work is shown below, along with a translation in English for those whose Spanish is not quite up to Endriu’s standard. 

¡Hola! ¿Qué tal? Me llamo Endriu y vivo en Londres. No me gusta vivir en Londres porque llueva siempre. Estudio en un instituto que se llama Westminster City School. En mi instituto, los lunes estudio educación física. En la clase de educación física, jugamos al ping pong. Me gusta porque es divertido. También, estudio leer, ciencias, matemáticas e inglés. Los martes, estudiamos matemáticas, religión y geografía por la mañana y por la tarde español, ciencias e inglés. Mi asignatura favorita es el inglés porque leemos ‘Romeo and Juliet’. Los miércoles, estudiamos PSHCE, inglés y matemáticas por la mañana, pero por la tarde estudiamos ciencias, inglés y dibujo. Me gusta el dibujo porque es divertido, pero no me gusta el PSHCE porque creo que es aburrido. Me encanta la historia porque es interesante. Los viernes, estudiamos geografía y en la clase de geografía estudiamos ‘Tourism in Jamaica’. En mi instituto hay un recreo todos los días (10.55-11.15) y hay un segundo recreo todos los días (12.05-12.40).  En mi instituto no hay piscina, no hay campo de futbol, pero hay un comedor, un gimnasio y un patio. El patio es pequeño, pero me gusta mucho. La biblioteca, en mi opinión es muy útil porque puedes leer y es muy tranquilo. 

Hello! How's it going? My name is Endriu and I live in London. I don't like living in London because it always rains. I study at a school called Westminster City School. At my school, I study P.E. on Mondays. In PE class, we play ping pong. I like it because it's fun. Also, I study reading, science, maths and English. On Tuesdays, we study math, religion, and geography in the morning and Spanish, science, and English in the afternoon. My favourite subject is English because we read 'Romeo and Juliet'. On Wednesdays, we study PSHCE, English and math in the morning, but in the afternoon we study science, English and art. I like art because it's fun, but I don't like PSHCE because I think it's boring. I love history because it is interesting. On Fridays, we study geography and in geography class we study 'Tourism in Jamaica'. In my school there is break every day (10.55-11.15) and there is lunch every day (12.05-12.40). In my school there is no swimming pool, there is no football pitch, but there is a dining hall, a gym and a playground. The playground is small, but I really like it. The library, in my opinion, is very useful because you can read and it is very quiet.
