Palaces, mosques and paella: pupils get a taste of Spain

Oundle School treats a group of year 9s to a trip to Granada

Over the Easter break, 13 Year 9 pupils from Oundle School visited Granada for a joint Religious Studies/Spanish trip led by staff from both departments within the School.  

On their first day, pupils visited and learned about the history of the Alhambra, a palace and fortress complex in Granada, enjoyed tours of the local area and watched a flamenco show in the evening. Highlights during the rest of the week included tours of Mezquita de Granada, the first mosque in Granada where the pupils learned about Islam, and a paella cooking course where pupils made their own lunch. Pupils also visited Granada Cathedral and the Royal Chapel, learning about the history of Christianity in Granada. 

Spanish teacher, Rebecca Blacknell commented, “The purpose of the trip was to engage pupils with Religious Studies in a Spanish context, giving a taste of what will be studied in Year 10 in both subjects, allowing the pupils to understand key parts of Spanish history which impact the country’s culture and language today.”

The trip to Granada was full of excitement and variety and I would like to thank the staff who made this trip possible – Tani Edu (14), pupil at Oundle School
