Guernica – Speaking to mankind

I’ve been asked to share the following project to ensure that as many people as possible hear about it and have the opportunity to participate.

¡La Roja Baila!

  Yesterday as part of Health Week I shared this video with Y5 who were focusing on ‘exercise for health.’  Although Sergio Ramos’ singing caused great amusement, they loved it and all enthusiastically joined in with the chorus.

And then they made another, with a similar message, but pointing out that La Furia Roja actually won in their away kit at the World […]
