Happy New Year to you all.
Have just been looking for resources for Picasso to use with my schools and I have just come across the TATE gallery website- lots of ideas for Picasso and other artists. If anyone has any ideas for Picasso/ Spanish I would love to hear from you.

Since my change of role in September, I have a lot more spare time, and have been filling some of it in the last couple of weeks making up some songs to help my KS2s with their phonics in Spanish.
