2nd graders True or False

Hello everybody,

With the second grades we started to revise some English. We played the game truths and lies.
The students had to say  a sentence that could be  true or false.
For example : My birthday is in May. The other students had to guess if it was true or false.
Another sentence was ; My favourite transport is by plane . ( variations...by boat, by bycycle, by car).
The students liked the game a lot !
Last week we started with the topic beach. We used the sentence; ¨ I want a towel , I want some food etc. ( vocabulary : umbrella , towel , camara , food , money , swimming suit. swimming trunks)
While drawing a beach appeared new vocabulary like for example crab and light house.

Well to stay a bit in the summer mood 3rd graders started with the topic ¨ The beach¨.
We played different games around this topic.and used  for example the sentence ; I'm going to the beach and i need some suncream   .

The last class we were drawing with crayons a beach...and there appeared new vocabulary like thunder and lightning....as the sun does't always shine.






P4 Being Indians........

Hello everybody !

We had already  a lot of fun in the English classes. Normally the class starts when leaving the canteen ,We move like different animals before entering in the classroom.
Then we sit on the floor in a circkle and play a ballgame. These days we moved the ball by saying the sentences; My name is.....and I like green..I like blue etc.

3rd graders Sports, What do you need for each sport?

Hello everybody  ! Last week we worked on the topic sport. We had to listen to a sentence that described a sport and the the students had to find the flashcard with the sport. For exemple ; For this sport you need a helmet and you practice it in winter.   Skiing  !  Yessss !  Find the card.
As well we did different activities with the sentence; You have to..... The students had to use a fortune teller to know what to do. For example you have to walk with the plate on the stick, you have to run around the pool , you have to jump through the ring.



And of course, you have to use the hoola hoop for 30 seconds.

3rd graders Going out ! What can you find in the shops ?






Hello everybody ,

With 3rd graders we did a lot of activities.  We visited different shops , by turns two students explained in front of the camara what you could find in the shop. For example ; In the sportshop you can find ; trainers, shorts,balls and bags,  in the petshop  you can find food for animals , rabbits, dogs and cats. On a big paper we drew the different shops and the things you can buy there.

p5 In action...Can you............?


Hello everybody !!

 With p5 we did many activities,  There is a kind of ritual; First we shout open the door, the door opens...students run into the class and say; ¨We want the costumes "...They dress themselves up and we sing a few songs together.  Then there is always the song of  the magic bag. Each day there is a different surprise in the bag. The last days we used the sentences ; Can you...... ? Yes , I can ...No I can't.


Can you put the plate on the stick?   Can you walk with the plate on the stick ?
And we made a craft , we decorated a mirror.  and learned the sentence ; I can see myself.

We continued with the question  Can you...? related with the senses and the weather. The questions are  ; Can you see the sun ?  Can you hear the rain ?  Can you touch a cloud ?  Can you smell the rain ? etc. Of course we have fun !!!

P4 Cloudy and a chance of icecream....





Hello everybody,

With p4 we keep on playing ,singing and creating. We made a craft related to the movie , cloudy and a chance of meatballs. In this movie there is raining food, so the students made a paper  cloud with cotton wool  and coloured some food items and put them on a string like rain.
The plan for the classes of p 4 can change a lot . For example the  teacher  wants to do a running game with the animals that are hungry ,the students can change this plan as they want to  play theatre.


                                    
Slowly they are getting more and more familiar with the English languatge, repeating sentences and singing songs.

1A & 1B (and 1C) - Sleeping away camps in advance

Hi all,

This week first graders have had the experience of sleeping away camps in advance, as we have done different activities related to this topic, such as discovering new vocabulary, playing a gymcama or colouring a postcard, and even a little role playing (with 1A).

Concretely, we have seen several words that have somehow a connection with sleeping away camps. For example: camping, campfire, sleeping bags, bunk beds, free time, to miss parents, go for a hike, and so on. We have also made a postcard for you, parents, which is not finished yet, for children to tell you what they are doing in the sleeping away camps and how they feel.

About the role playing, last Wednesday, we joined 1A and 1C, and three students played the role of being camp counselors and planned a set of activities, and the rest of the class pretended to be just participants. It worked very well, and such three students had the opportunity to put in our shoes, and be aware of how difficult to dela with students is sometimes, which ís a good exercise, we think.

Bye!!!

5th A - Prepositions of place and movement


Hi all again!

Fifth graders have been working on the topic of prepositions of place and movement, by doing different sort of exercises, such as descriptions of pictures.

We have learnt that that there's a great deal of such prepositions, the ones that express place or position (in, on, under...) and the other ones that express how something moves from a place (towards, through...).

We have practised the role of prepositions within sentences. In other words, we have made sentences, placing prepositions to their most usual place within.

P.D: We have also had time for playing games! Take a look at the two pictures below!

It has been a succesful class! We have had fun!

Bye!!!!

1A - 1B Let's discover animals!

Hello again,



We have been working on the topic of animals since the last post. The idea is to get familiar with animals and their environment. 

We have discovered a great variety of animals (tigers, bears, penguins, rhinos, elephants and more and more); we have learnt how their environments are, from the forest to the jungle, or even our own homes. We have learnt we can classify animals in three groups: wild animals, farm animals and domestic animals (or pets). 

Some photos taken during the class. Hope you enjoy them!
