Of course we had to do something with Valentine's day. Glitters and girls go very well together !! So they made some beautiful hearts full with glitter. And just to let you know that we painted faces as well . Here you are; some pictures !!!





5th grade Let's speak !!!

Hello everybody !

With 5thgraders  we are doing a lot of games and  activities to invite them to speak.
For example we look at a short video and they have to tell what they saw.
We did as well many experiments.They have to explain the steps to take to do the experiment.
The folowing pictures are made while doing experiments.



first grade : Jincama in the plaza Carmen.


Last week we went to Plaza Carmen to repeat some vocabulary and be real detectives.  We had to find a palmtree,   money, hearts , a boat , feathers and finally found the parrot as well.  



We had a lot of fun !!!

2nd grade What do you do ??? I'm a doctor, I listen to your heartbeat.



Hello everybody !    We are working on the topic ; Jobs.  We did different games.  Danced and sang along with the following video.








As well we did theatre . For example we build a prison with chairs where we played to be the policeman and the thief. and we made a hospital with chairs and played roles like the patient and the nurse. We used sentences like . Does  it hurt ? Yes it hurts.  I broke my leg. I broke my arm.
Ai ai it's terrible. You have to wait .   No problem.I listen to your heart beat.

6th grade -Project: A brochure of Great Britain

Hello to everyone,

After having baked muffins, we started a new project about Great Britain. 

My idea is the students get closer to Great Britain, For that reason, I think that discovering its culture and customs, its towns and cities, or its landscsape and natural parks might be an effective way to keep their attention towards English, which is, actually, what we all wish!

The project has two steps. First, we watched a video about Great Britain and its main features or topics. It was a good listenning activity, and they did a great effort to understand it. After that, we discussed about what it has been understood and what not, and made an outline and a list of the main topics that had appeared on the video.

Second, we made up a brochure of Great Britain, which explained the most important and interesting features of Great Britain.  For doing so, we splitted in groups, and made sentences, and made decisions about the design (pictures, the font, its size...). 

We have been working on its second part of the project since last week. It's almost finished. We are going to post the brochures to the blog as soon as we can.


Bye for now!

1B - A special Friday, making a free topic session with clay


Hello again,

As we started new semester and that we just met us, we decided to do something different: A free topic session with clay. Each of the students could make whatever figure they occured.

Neither rules nor commands for just a day! Just imagination!

They had fun moulding clay with their own hands, for sure!

The figures were amazing and surprising!

Here below some pictures of this special session!

Enjoy it!

3rd grade - What can you do? I can... activity

Hello again,

This week, we focused on jobs and their roles by doing different activities and dynamics at class. First, we approach to this new topic by learning such jobs and roles. Then, we played to a true or false game to understand each job and what its role can be and what it cannot be. Finally, we introduced the modal verb "can" to make sentences related to it by doing different activities and dynamics around the class again.


Apart from that, we also spent some time to 14th February, lovers' celebration by making a craft that students decorated on their way. You can find a couple of pictures of it on a new post, entitled "14th February, Saint Valentine's Day".

Here below you can see some pictures that are a sample of what we talk about.


Keep in contact!

Bye!

2nd Grade B Creative Actions!

We have been learning, exploring and remembering the things we use in the classroom!

Scissors, glue, sharpener, eraser, pencil, pen, markers, crayon, paint, paintbrush, ruler,
and more!
We played a game called "What's missing?" and tried to remember all the objects on the table.
We played "What's in the bag?" we put an object in a cloth bag, and then only using our sense of touch (no looking!!) Then one student can feel what's in the bag- "Is it metal or plastic? Is it wood or rubber?"

Then we learned "What is it used for?"
We use a paintbrush to paint.
We use scissors to cut.
We use a ruler to draw a line.


We made these beautiful designs, by tracing the objects and colouring them in with markers.


 For carnival we used glue, scissors, paper and markers to make a beautiful paper fish!!! 
We cut, we glued, we drew and we decorated our fish with stickers!

P5A How are you?

Tick Tock- Tick Tock
The clock says Tick Tock,
The clock says Tick Tock,
It's time to say hello!!! 

We read about the colour monster and learnt about the colours and our emotions.

We played musical statues! We dance and then, when the music stops,  we "freeze" - on our face we show an emotion
Are you happy? Are you sad? Are you scared? Are you calm? Are you angry? 
Are you in love? 
                   Yes, I am!                 No, I'm not!  







For carnival we made these colourful necklaces! We cut out shapes, from colour cardboard and glued them to a red string.  Happy Carnival!!!
