La Fresneda. Asturias Our things
Our location We live in Northern Spain,in a Community called “Principality of Asturias”(in short, Asturias).In Wales they have the “Prince of Wales”, here we have the “Prince of Asturias” the person who is going to be the next King of Spain. The area where we live is called “Siero” and it is located in the middle of the region.You can see it on the left.
Our neighbourhood We live in La Fresneda, a place very near Oviedo(the capital city).We love living here because we are close to the city but here is like a village :no traffic and lots of green areas.Many of us go to school by bike.
Our school Our school is nice.We start at 9:00 am and finish at 4:00 pm every day. Our school has two buildings:One for the small children (from 3 to 5 years old) and the second for us (from 6 to 12). We can have lunch at school and also do sports before lunch and after lessons in the afternoons. We also can learn music,dance,play chess or learn ICT.
More about our school What we like more is that we go out of school often to visit museums or other interesting places. Last year we went to practise ski for a whole week.We call it “The White Week”. We love doing that !
Celebrations at school We have some special days at our school: “Amagüestu”( we celebrate autumn tasting sweet cider and eating roasted chestnuts.We also play typical sports and dance Asturian folk dances wearing our typical costume. You can see us dancing a very ancient dance “ La Danza Prima”
School Celebrations (ii) We also celebrate Halloween, “Peace Day, the “Book Day”…
Christmas At Christmas we celebrate a big festival: we sing carols (in Spanish and English), dance, perform plays,say poems,draw cards…Now we are preparing our Christmas festival.
Carnival, Graduation Every February we celebrate Carnival.We wear disguises and parents give us hot chocolate and pastries. At the end of June we have the last big celebration.We are going to graduate and go to a Secondary school in September.Some of us will go to different schools so won’t be together next school year.
Our daily Life Living in La Fresneda is nice.We go to the Country Club to play sports or just meet.When the weather becomes hotter they open the swimming-pool so we can go swimming. We also meet in others’ houses or go out to play,ride our bikes o join in “the Square” or the park. In summers we spend a lot of time outdoors. In winters we have to do homework so we don’t have much time.We also like using computers to talk to each other from home.Some of us take extra lessons of English or Music after school or go to a close area to swim as they have an indoors swimming pool there.
Our magazine We are happy because we have this European project.We looked for information about your countries and met your teachers when they visited our school. We have lots of ideas for our magazine.It will be great!!!.We are thinking of names for it. We wish you all a Merry Christmas (and lots of presents!!! 6th form pupils.La Fresneda school.
