2nd grade: My body and clothes

Hello again:

This week we have started a new topic, "My body and Clothes". It's an opportunity to revise a topic we introduced last year. The idea is that they are able to use as many words as they can and have a goog knowledge of the parts of his/her body in English. We work throught different ways, from memory games and games to drawing a mural.

I attach and example of the stuff used at class in case you want to take a look at it:

We will keep you informed of how it goes very soon and some pictures will be added, too.

See you soon

All the best!

1st grade: Watching a movie

Hello again,

After having made clay figures and learnt more about Circus, we decided to plan something completely different and easier to do. Children love cartoons of "Les Tres Bessones". That's why we chose an episode of this three twins and a wolf, called White Fang" in Alaska.

It was a more enjoyable and relaxing session. It was great!

1st grade: Circus and dices!

Hello again,

A few weeks ago we spent two sessions in Circus topic. From the main acrobats, trapezists and jugglers to the main animals and their performances. We did so by playing memory games with flashcards and by making a dice.

We enjoyed a lot!

3rd grade: Saint George's Day theatre

Hello again:

This week we have decided to prepare something really special for Saint George. We have in mind the idea of playing Saint George's tale in a modern version. Each of us will play a role but in a modern way. So, instead of the princess, the knight and the dragon, there will be hula hoop dancers, a juggler and some modern warriors.

Here you can see some pictures. Enjoy it!

3rd grade Fun and games using "I would like..." structure

Hello, again:

This week we have focused on "I would like..." structures  through fun games related to Saint George's Day and its vocabulary. 

The students have learnt the main words about such traditional tale (princess, knight, dragon...) and they have practised them in conditional tense by making sentences with "I would like..." structure.

We have enjoyed it so much!

P.D: The next post is about how we prepare our costumes for Saint George's day theatre. 

All the best




6th grade - April fool's day. A project around British humour


Hello, again:

After having made Slime, we focused on a topic entirely different: British humour. The fact that on 1st April is the day on which April fool's day is celebrated in the UK gave us the idea of introducing  the students to British humour. 

Not only for learning new vocabulary, but to understand how humour and language are closely connected. As what is funny in English might not be so in Catalan and vice versa.

The project was splitted in two sessions. The first one started watching an amusing video of Mr Bean, the famous British humorist and actor, entitled "Mr Bean goes to the cinema". Moreover, the video focused on the usage of Present Progressive by asking questions. 

The group did a great job, and understood the video completely. After that, we did a word search to discover new words (verbs, nouns and adjectives) and their context.

The second session focused on giving examples of short British jokes, most of them about animals through an activity of British Council for kids website. I must say that some of the jokes were not funny for the students, though. This was, however, a good point to discuss to during the second half of the class, as humour and culture are closely related to. Finally, they had to explain a funny joke in front of the class, either in pairs or individually. In doing so, they were aware of how difficult that was.

Here you have the link of the video, the website and a picture:




More news soon!

 Hello everybody.

 These 5th graders have a lot of energy. Often we use games with a lot of movement .
For example ,after Easter we used the sentence  ¨I went to............¨   ( my friend's house, Barcelona, London, the swimmingpool etc )
And after a lot of speaking and running it was  time for a chill out.




Time to rest !!!   Guess who is the new student.  Welcome !!!!

First grade : Spring is in the air !!!!!!

Hello everybody,  spring is in ther air ! So we did a lot of activities around this topic.

After Easter we continued with the topic Spring.
We made a boardgame with the folowing words:  butterfly, ladybird, grass, flower , rainbow , bird , cloud, rabbit  and frog.
We played with  domino game as well. We had to find flashcards in the park  .
We used sentences like ; Where is the ladybird ?....and when the student found the ladybird  ; ¨I found the ladybird !!!¨ Then we had to find the next picture according to the picture  shown on the domino card.

2nd C - Weather + Food... what a combination!

The group is working on an surprising mix of topics... The Weather and Food!


but, how? They have read the book "Cloudy with a risk of meatballs" and now they are watching the movie with same name (inspired by the book).

Besides the vocabulary, they are looking for similarities and differences between the two stories.

P5 B - Happy Easter!

The girls and boys of P5 wish you ...

HAPPY EASTER!
