We have read Ferdinand by Munro Leaf this week. The story of a little bull who would rather sit under a cork tree and smell flowers than fight. I have found it quite touching really and can't help but think of all of the real life Ferdinands out there.
Quick round up of what we have done so far -
* Made a story disc and placed it on Spain on our big world map
* Coloured the Spanish flag
* Talked about the tourist industry and looked at a couple of pictures like this one
* Discussed the physical characteristics of a bull as opposed to a cow - yes, one of those udder/ penis/horns sort of conversations.
