ALL ABOUT PLANTS

DEAR FAMILIES

DURING THE THIRD TERM, WE HAVE BEEN VERY BUSY LEARNING ABOUT THE CURRENT SEASON: SPRING!

OUR MAIN TOPICS OF INTEREST HAVE BEEN PLANTS AND INSECTS, TO DISCOVER AND REFLECT ON THE CHANGES IN NATURE AND THE VEGETATION AND ANIMALS WE CAN FIND DURING THIS TIME OF THE YEAR.

IN ORDER TO DO SO, WE HAVE COMPLETED A PROJECT ABOUT PLANTS. WE HAVE LEARNED THEIR LIFE CYCLE, MAIN PARTS AND CHARACTERISTICS, WHAT THEY NEED IN ORDER TO GROW AND SO MANY MORE INTERESTING THINGS! ON TOP OF THIS, WE HAVE CREATED OUR OWN FLIP FLAP BOOK WITH EVERYTHING WE HAVE DISCOVERED AND PREPARED THE FOLLOWING PRESENTATIONS TO EXPLAIN IT TO YOU.

WE HOPE YOU ENJOY THE FOLLOWING VIDEOS AND LEARN SOMETHING NEW:

I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO SAY BYE BYE AND TO WISH YOU ALL A SPLENDID SUMMER!!!

BIG HUGS,

TEACHER LAIA

EASTER TIME

WE DEDICATED THE LAST TWO WEEKS OF THE SECOND TERM TO LEARN ABOUT ENGLISH CULTURE SURROUNDING EASTER CELEBRATIONS.

IT WAS A FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE AND WE LEARNED A LOT ABOUT THE EASTER BUNNY LEGEND. WE ALSO MADE OUR OWN BASKETS AND A BEAUTIFUL CARD WITH A POEM TO TAKE HOME.

FINALLY, WE CELEBRATED EASTER PLAYING EASTER GAMES AND DOING AN EGG HUNT!

PLEASE ENJOY THE FOLLOWING VIDEOS ABOUT OUR EASTER ADVENTURES:

I HOPE YOU ALL HAD A VERY HAPPY SPRING BREAK!

SHAPES, SHAPES, SHAPES!

HELLO FAMILIES!

WE WOULD LIKE TO PRESENT TO YOU OUR LAST TOPIC: SHAPES. DURING THE PAST WEEKS, THE SALSITXES AND THE MINERALS HAVE BEEN LEARNING THE NAMES OF DIFFERENT 2D WELL KNOWN SHAPES.

BESIDES, WE HAVE PLAYED A LOT WITH THEM, WE HAVE INVESTIGATED THEIR PROPERTIES AND WE HAVE USED THEM TO CREATE AN ORIGINAL ART PIECE.

EACH CHILD WAS ABLE TO DEVELOP THEIR IMAGINATION AND CREATIVITY BY CREATING A DRAWING USING SHAPES. THEN, THEY WERE ASKED TO EXPLAIN IT ENUMERATING THE ONES THEY HAD USED.

PLEASE ENJOY THE FOLLOWING VIDEOS, WHERE YOU WILL SEE HOW MUCH WE HAVE LEARNED:

SEE YOU SOON!

ALL ABOUT US :)

HELLO FAMILIES!

TODAY WE WOULD LIKE TO SHARE THE RESULT OF ONE OF OUR MAIN PROJECTS DURING THE FIRST TERM OF THIS YEAR: AN ORAL PRESENTATION ABOUT OURSELVES. WE STARTED THIS PROJECT BACK IN SEPTEMBER, WHEN WE REVISITED THE VOCABULARY AND GRAMMAR STRUCTURES WE ALREADY KNEW AND TRIED TO PUT THEM TO GOOD USE IN A REAL COMMUNICATIVE SITUATION.

THE CLASS GROUPS HAD JUST CHANGED, SO IT WAS THE PERFECT OPPORTUNITY TO INTRODUCE OURSELVES TO THE REST OF OUR CLASSMATES.

AS YOU WILL SEE, EVERYONE DID A REALLY AMAZING JOB!

PLEASE ENJOY THE FOLLOWING VIDEOS WE RECORDED SO YOU CAN HEAR OUR PRESENTATIONS TOO:

SEE YOU SOON,

WHAT CLOTHES DO YOU WEAR IN WINTER?

FOLLOWING OUR MAIN INTEREST OF THE YEAR, THE SEASONS OF THE YEAR, WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THE WINTER MONTHS AND HOW TO PROTECT OURSELVES FROM THE COLD. MANY CHILDREN HAVE SHARED THEIR WINTER EXPERIENCES IN THE SNOW AND THE MOUNTAINS, WHICH HAS GIVEN US THE PERFECT OPPORTUNITY TO PRESENT A NEW FRIEND: FROGGY.

HE IS A VERY SMART FROG WHO WAKES UP DURING WINTER AND WANTS TO GO OUTSIDE TO PLAY. HIS MUM ASKS HIM TO PUT ON ALL HIS WINTER CLOTHES BUT, POOR FROGGY! HE IS MUCH TOO SLEEPY AND KEEPS FORGETTING PARTS OF HIS WINTER OUTFIT. THIS HILARIOUS STORY HAS ACCOMPANIED US AND HELPED US LEARN THE WINTER CLOTHES VOCABULARY.

AS YOU WILL SEE IN THE FOLLOWING VIDEO, WE HAVE ATTEMPTED TO ANSWER THE FOLLOWING PREMISE: IMAGINE YOU WANT TO GO AND PLAY OUT IN THE SNOW WITH FROGGY, WHAT CLOTHES WOULD YOU WEAR?

SEE YOU SOON,

TEACHER LAIA

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

THE LAST WEEK OF OCTOBER IS A VERY SPOOKY ONE… AS IT IS THE TIME TO CELEBRATE THIS SPECIAL TRADITION: HALLOWEEN!

THE MINERALS AND SALSITXES HAD A GREAT TIME INVESTIGATING WHAT A WITCH’S BREW IS AND WHAT YOU CAN PUT IN IT TO MAKE A SPELL. THEY CAME UP WITH A POTION INVOLVING A SNAKE, AN ANT AND A FROG AND MADE THEIR OWN CAULDRONS TO PERFORM IT.

PLEASE ENJOY THE FINAL RESULT:

SEE YOU SOON,

TEACHER LAIA
