Greetings from Tenerife
Whilst the rest of us return to school as normal, some lucky Y9 and Y10 students have been whisked away to sunny Tenerife. Each day they will send us an update about their adventures!
We arrived in Tenerife after an easy journey and on the way to our partner school we stopped in a village called el Medano and got our first look at the beautiful coastline. Once we arrived at school we were greeted with dos besos by our partners, it was great to see them after so long! We spent the afternoon and evening with our partner families, some of us got to try typical Canarian food or visit the local town.
We went to the south of the island where it was very hot and sunny!! We went out on a boat trip and were so lucky to see so many dolphins, it was amazing! Afterwards we had some free time and were able to try out our best Spanish ordering ice creams and tapas. We've learned lots of typical Canarian phrases already.
Today we went to the Teide volcano with our partners. We made our way up the volcano by coach and stopped on the way up to take in the views and learn more about how the volcano was formed at the visitors centre. We then carried on up the volcano and stopped for a long walk. On the walk we were singing funny Spanish songs and teaching our partners English ones! It was tiring but amazing to be up so high and see the volcanic landscape. After the walk we all had a picnic together and had some free time. Now it's time for the weekend and our partner have lots of fun things planned for us!
