This is the last entry of the course. Today, Monday 21st, was a special day as we put an end to the activity. That's why we did something completely different: we went Montsacopa and spend some quality time talking about the course, and about all we have shared.
I can only add that it's been a real pleasure to have you, Jan and Aniol, in class again. It's been three courses doing the activity, and for me it's been nice to see how you grow up.
I wish to add the course has been very successful in terms of your participation and involvement in tne activity, and I want to thank you for that!
You both have a very good levels of English for your age, and I am totally sure you will continue improving and learning more and more in the future.
I wish you have a great summertime, and let me remind you not to lose track in your English!
All the best!

The course has come to its end. It's been a special one because of the pandemic, but we have learnt a lot of new things, we have played, laughed, worked and enjoyed every activity and every minute.
Today, we said farewell and wished a very good summer to each other!
Only would I like to wish you, families, for all your support and trust along the year! It's been a real pleasure to have your children at class every week!
Looking forward to having you at class next course!
Nice summer to everyone!

We have recently finished a series of lessons about animals and feelings and emotions. We have worked on this two topics by doing speaking and writing activities all together and individually. We have learned a great deal of caractheristics of a long lis of animals, such as whales, dogs, snakes, elephants, pigs, frogs, sharks and more and more, (from where they live or what they eat to what they look like...). In addition we have introduced basic feelings and emotions (in the form of adjectives) by using emoticons and colour them! It's been so much fun!
Next week we'll take the last entry of the year, informing you about the latest news and saying farewell to all of you!
See you then!
The course is finishing in the middle of this heat wave!
Here I would like to give you a short flash about an activity we have recently done. It covers the topic of food, which we have worked more than once this course, and say greetings or introduce yourself.
We watched a video about what minions eat and what they like and what they do not like to do. Then we did the activity itself, which is named Meet Bob! and it has let us to revise greeting expressions, colours and parts of the classroom. Not only did we do the worksheet but we also practised the questions related to greetings and farewells.
Next week I will make the last entry of the course, and say farewell to all of you!
See you then!

I would like to inform you about the latest news of the activity. We have recently finished a topic around food and drink. We have done a wide range of activities. Not only have we practised vocabulary and basic grammar pills, but also listening and reading skills.
Now that we have widened our range of vocabulary on this area, we can name a wider range of food and drinks, and we can do so by using the basic structures we have learnt: There is / There are and prepositions of place (in, in front of, on, under, next tom behind).
Hoping you are being well, we'll keep you informed!

Hello ! Hello!
Here I share with you the last, but not the least important, part of the project "bag of wishes".
We used to sing this song Healthy x unhealthy food.
The song introduced the topic and remembered us the importance of being healthy and that we can do it choosing what we eat.
We had a great time classifying healthy and unhealthy food. We also created together different kinds of menus according with the 3/4 meals we have during the day.
We enjoyed together these Steve and Maggie episodes Steve and Maggie Steve and Maggie II. Kids have took home the "bag" and you can talk more about it. It was a pleasure to guide these activities learning English and good/ positive habits at the same tame.
Now we keep moving and the next project is acting classes. Kids are happy and exited!
Here I bring news about our project. During 2 weeks we talked about. "How can I be a good student?"
We started learning new vocabulary like:
We also had a crossword and of course a song to inspire!
This is a special entry, because we, Jan and Aniol, are updating the blog instead of Jordi.
We are going to inform you about the latest news about our activities.
We have discussed on the topic of bullying in the school.
We watched Karate kid and answered a set of questions to stir up the discussion.
Then we took on another project around the meaning of friendship among teenagers.
We watched Stand by me, by Rob Reiner, which is very appropiate. After that we did a set of reading and writing activities.
We have also worked in the topic of food and drinks, not only practising vocabulary but also doing grammar points, like pronouns and prepositions of place.
We hope you have enjoyed reading our activities.
