Este curso escolar 2014/2015 empiezo una nueva aventura con una tutoría de 2º de Primaria. Junto a ellos hemos creado un nuevo blog: http://segundodeprimariavalsequillo.blogspot.com.es/

En cuanto a este blog, pueden seguir usando los recursos que se encuentran en él puesto que seguirá siendo público, pero no actualizaré los enlaces ni añadiré nada nuevo.
Si en algún momento necesitan o quieren que actualice algo, me pueden mandar un correo a :
valsequilloclil@gmail.com y estaré encantada de echarles una mano.

“Put on your best costume and come into carnival”

SPAIN _ Schoolovision 2013 from Valsequillo on Vimeo.

 Our song is an invitation to participate in the festival of Carnival. This is a very important celebration in the Canary Islands in which people come together and have fun through singing, dancing and dressing up in costumes. Creativity, imagination, the unity of people and having fun are some of the values of our Carnival tradition.
Our entire village joined together to celebrate Carnival for you. All of the schools from our town (municipality) participated in the traditional parade. The children danced, played drums and sang the song, “Put on your best costume and come into carnival” which was written by a Canarian songwriter named Sindro Saavedra.
In the video you will see different scenes that incorporate many of the different traditions of our Carnival, for example;
- How a grandma sews costumes for her granddaughters.
- The old tradition of knocking on ones door while wearing old clothes and asking for eggs to make pancakes. You also can watch how they make carnival pancakes.
- How our children invite people to join in the Carnival celebration in the local shops, at the taxi rank, the pharmacy, etc.
- A Carnival parade with floats
- The 2013 Carnival Queen at the stage where the many different performances for the Carnival celebration take place in the capital city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
- A performance by a Drag Queen which has become a world famous Carnival tradition here.
And you can also see our “sardine” that will be burned and which marks the end of the festival.
