KS2 Spanish - Cómo hacer una piñata

mediumblue

Summary

In a creative idea for teaching Key Stage 2 Spanish, this short video shows how to make a piñata (brightly-coloured decoration).

In Mexico it's a birthday tradition to make a piñata, fill it with sweets, hang it from the ceiling and take turns in hitting it until it breaks, spilling the treats inside. Roman and his friends, Alondra and Daniel, make a piñata and show what to do with it when it's finished.

There's also a song that accompanies the destruction of the piñata - and the words appear on screen in this video, to help pupils sing along.

This primary lesson starter relates to the modern language and themes explored in I am the Music Man, curriculum unit 14 of KS2 Spanish. It also helps pupils develop cultural understanding.
