Year 6 Trip to San Juan Tapas Restaurant 22nd June 2016
Our Year 6 class enjoyed a wonderful experience today at the infamous San Juan Tapas Restaurant on Beech Road, Chorlton. They tucked into a delicious lunch of Paella, Tortilla Española and Patatas Bravas, while listening to Spanish music. Afterwards, the class polished off fruit platters while the staff tested their Spanish. Year 6 even sang for them!
After this, our class learned all about how Paella's are made and where the Tortilla came from, then the children talked about their own experiences of Spain.
