1st grade. Bedknobs and Broomsticks.

Hello!
These days we are watching pieces of an old movie: "Bedknobs and Broomsticks" (1971, UK-USA, Walt Disney).

Curiously, when we compare the old and new films for children, we find out that the speed of talking and rythm of the speeches is smoothier in the old films.
That's why this one was a good choice. We found a lot of animals' vocabulary to practice again with.

We are combining the activity with some handcraft related to the movie: inventing medalions, inventing magic wands with magic words....


5th grade. Sing and learn.

Hello,
Spring came and we feel like singing. So for these days the students are sellecting some songs. After that we work on the lyrics, we sing, we check the meaning and if we feel like we invent a coreography.

There are so many songs that we listen to and sing along without knowing the meaning!!
Sometimes, after recognizing the lyrics, we change our mind about that soft and melodic song.

Moreover, many of the lyrics are about feelings...so it is a goid starting point to speak about Jealousy, Love...
Here you have some pictures. Enjoy it!

P4 Creating a house with a garden !!

Hello everybody,

With p4 we have been working on the topics house and garden. With some students we made a real small garden by sowing real seeds and decorating it with sticks and stones.
And we created a  house.
The idea of the game was to hide a cat or another picture of an animal in the house.
The question ,  Where is the cat ?  The cat is in the kitchen.  Where is the cat the cat is in the bathroom.

We sang a song with the ukelele:
Song; Cooking in the kitchen 2x
          Sleeping in the bedroom 2x
          and watching tv ....in the livingroom.

It was real fun !

Pictures will follow....



         

P5 Having fun with the topic transport

Hello everybody !

Last weeks we have been working on the topic transport. We made a so called scateboard of cardboard and decorated it with various imatges of transport. Then we played with them throwing them in the air trying to touch different flashcards of transport.

We repeated the game changing chairs whereby there is one student in the middle saying for example¨There is a car¨´then the two children who have the flashcard  ¨car ¨have to change chairs and the student in the middle has to get one of the free chairs. It was real fun !
Sorry , no pictures...too involved in participating.

The vocabulary,  There is ; a car a bicycle.  a  plane,  a lorry,  a train ,a submarine, a boat.....or There is a car and a plane  (then the car and the plane change chairs).

5th - How can we describe using nature

They had two boxes in the class, one with leaves, branches, flowers, fruits from trees and plants; The other full of sticks, pieces of wood, rocks, shells from sea animals and from land...

The first activity? Let's match the material with the list of english names, so we can enjoy touching and get some specific vocabulary.

The second activity? Let's use these "pieces of nature" to create a composition that describe someone real or imaginary. And finally explain/present the result.


Composition: someone happy and competitive
Composition: is a person that is happy, positive and sweet.
composition: Sculpture of "someones"
This boat can navigate and make you enjoy time















They ended with free creation....

 A camp/city cooperative construction

  

A horse sculpture

English, Creativity and Fun.... we can't ask for more!

1st grade. Food vocabulary.

Dear parents,
during the last sessions we have been working with food vocabulary.
Learning english, once more, is good fun when you combine it with games, drawing, creating food, theatre and real life like going to a supermarket and look for the items of a list.
