As Christmas holidays were about to come, we spent several sessions to talk about it, to learn a bit more about this tradition in English. From the basic vocabulary to the basic dates and traditions by doing different sort of activities.
How is the place we live in? Which are the main rooms of a house? Which are the main objects or parts of a bathroom, a bedroom a kitchen... ? Where do we live? Either in towns or villages, at the downtown or on the outskirts, and even in the countryside. So, from an appartment to a dettached house or in a cottage.
This is the topic in which we worked on this December at class. Different sort of activities whose basic purpose has been to find out more about the place where we live.
Just wishing you had a nice Christmas Eve (24th December), and wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Over the past two days we've been pre-celebrating Christmas. We've had a lot of fun and even had a little sweet surprise at the end....More pictures to follow soon... We wish you all a wonderful Christmas and happy new year!!!
We started to work on the topic the senses. We played different games,for example throwing balls to a nose while saying I smell, to an ear , I hear etc. We drew some pictures related with the senses.
What can you taste and what can't you taste. For example they drew an apple that you can taste and a sun that you can't taste.
We used sentences like ; Can you see a flower ? Yes I can . Can you smell a flower ? Yes I can. Can you hear a flower ? No I can't.
The last class was together withg p4 where we focussed on friendship and sharing while playing with fooditems and colouring a picture of two lovely pinguins.
The students brought home a colourful craft. The idea was that they drew a mouth ( with tongue), a nose , an eye and an ear. And combined it with a colour and a picture. For the sun on the yellow card I used the questions for example; Can you see the sun ? Yes I can.
Can you taste the sun ? No , I can't . Can you smell the sun ? No I can't. Can you hear the sun ? No, I can't. The activitie was a bit too difficult. Later on we try again !
Of course the p4 students made their own version of the craft. They wanted to glue the colours on the circle or make a different craft.
we can't explain much about the details... but the groups have started a new project... and the result will be a LOVELY SURPRISE! Just don't be concerned if you see them singing and dancing in front of the mirror.
The last weeks the kids have been working on drawing and designing robots... On one side, robots are really interesting and a cutting the edge topic. Furthermore, we can use them for practising a lot of vocabulary: Shapes: triangle, square, circle, ... Parts of the body: head, eyes, nose, mounth, neck, body, chest, arms, legs, hands, foot, ... Position: on the top of, on the side of, ...
