We are all very sad at St Matthew’s to be saying goodbye to Miss Maria Rodriguez who joined us back in October as our Spanish teacher for Years 3, 4, 5 and 6.
Her time with us has come to an end - although not in the way any of us had expected and definitely not in the way we would have chosen.
But even though Miss Rodriguez has not been teaching her weekly lessons in school, she has been contributing to our online home learning curriculum with her outstanding videos. If she doesn’t want to pursue teaching as a full-time career, we think that she definitely has all the skills to be a TV presenter! We are extremely grateful for her contribution during the lockdown.
We know that some of the children tried the recipe for Rosas de manzana but we hope that no one tried to recreate a castell in their gardens!
So the video below is Miss Rodriguez’s final one - we hope you enjoy watching it.
Although you have not had the chance to say “Adiós” to Miss Rodriguez, she will continue to look at our website and the Spanish pages in particular, so why not say goodbye in the comments section below? We’re sure that Miss Rodriguez will love seeing your messages.
Adios y gracias, Señorita Rodriguez!
Buena suerte para el futuro!
