My eTwinning visit to Valladolid


During the half term break a dream came true for me... I visited my eTwinning partner, Natalia! We met on the eTwinning website about 18 months ago, and we have become very friendly. When we won the Quality label for our projects in June, we decided that we should get together, so I persuaded my husband to get me an early Christmas gift and bought my plane ticket to Spain. A lot has happened in the past 5 days while I was in Valladolid, I spent a day in Natalia's school, we did lots of sightseeing, I was even very poorly for a day lying on the sofa watching Canal+ movies... I have taken lots of pictures, I will use many in school to present vocabulary,to show the pupils some places of interest or typical Spanish food. Here we go:

The house of Cervantes

In my suitcase I have:
 Second hand Spanish books from our penpals

 School books, children's magazines and teaching ones
 Autumn letters for the penpals in Burscough
School diaries
Turrón, Colacao, Huesos de Santos
Gifts from Natalia
Lunch with teachers from school

 While we were having lunch in a restaurant we got an email saying that we were awarded the European Quality Label for our projects. What a surprise!

See you soon sunny Valladolid!


  1. ¡Qué celos tengo! Tengo muchas ganas de irme a España.

  2. I want to go again! Tomorrow! :-) I am checking the deals for February half term now.... very tempted and thinking about what to give up to pay for it:-) We went 2 years ago with the two kids, but my little girl got chicken pox the day we arrived and I spent most of the holiday in the hotel room with her...we deserve another one!

  3. Madre guapa nunca mejor dicho "te has puesto las botas"ja,ja,ja. Me alegro que te haya gustado la visita. Enhorabuena por el premio y nada, que cuando quieras te vienes también a mi tierra que, con permiso de los de Valladolid, es mucho mejor ja,ja,ja,ja,ja,ja....¡No, no! Es broma porque Valladolid no lo conozco pero en la meseta hay unos embutidos y unos quesos de chuparse los dedos. Un vez más 'Enhorabuena! wapa :-)
