Year 9 Madrid Trip 2019
Posted 12th February 2019
From 6th - 8th February 2019, 39 Year 9 students and 4 members of staff spent 3 days in Madrid. We were very lucky with the weather, and we certainly made the most of our Spanish experience!
As soon as we arrived we began our Spanish adventure. Due to our early flight from Liverpool airport we were all very hungry and tired by the time we arrived at our hotel! That didn’t stop us from eating tapas and watching a real-life Flamenco show at the famous Villa Rosa. ¡Olé!
We spent the next day brushing up on our Spanish with our pen pals in our partner school in Madrid, ‘IES Santa Eugenia’. Students spent time playing bilingual games with their pen pals and attending lessons in Spanish! Afterwards we headed to Madrid Zoo and finished off the day at the home to Real Madrid, doing the Santiago Bernabéu stadium tour.
The following morning we enjoyed our typical Spanish breakfast at the hotel and headed out via Metro to Las Ventas, for our guided bullring arena tour.
After an exhausting morning we headed back to the hotel to collect our luggage and get ready for the flight home to Liverpool.
All in all, we all really enjoyed our Spanish adventure in the capital, made lots of life-long friends, tried lots of new things and practised lots of Spanish!
