Hi everyone!
We’ve been practising storytelling today with the group in 2 baccalaureate. First, they did a puzzle with Bookwidgets and then we used the App Talking Dice 3 D to make up stories with the pics showing on the dice. The only rule was using the linking words on the puzzle to start their sentences. Great fun! What are you waiting for? Give it a go!

Hi everyone!
We’ve recently tried something new in 1 baccalaureate: visual thinking! It consists on puncture thinking, in other words, it’s a way to organize thoughts and improve studentsk ability to think and communicate. The students were really engaged while drawing collaboratively about modal verbs. It was just a perfect chance to process, analyse, evaluate and create. I stongly recommend it to everyone! Have a look at their masterpieces!

Our 3ESO students had had a lot of fun competing in this writing contest and they’ve got a fabulous prize!!!
Well done guys!

Activating our brains!

Posted: May 14, 2018 in READERS

In our Readers classes this week we have started on a dynamic note, disinhibiting ourselves and activating our brains. I’ve called the activity 30 seconds and it consists of students using 30 seconds to find a song, another 30 seconds to convince the class that their song is the best so they have to reach a consensus, and then another 30 seconds to find the karaoke version and put it on the Apple TV. Students then sing and dance to the chosen song🎤

Once the song has finished, the students are asked to notice what they just did and become aware of the fact that they managed to take a group decision, reach a consensus, cohese as a group and carry out collaborative group work, and in the process, read lots of English, without any effort!

A fun and dynamic way to start the week or to liven up the atmosphere, preparing for deeper learning.

More coming soon from the Readers dept😉

Hi everyone,

Primary art students have been working on a number of artistic styles and concepts and here we caN see some excellent examples of the work being completed. Firstly we have a work using pointillism, where individual points of colour together create an impressive effect. Next we can see the use of analogous colors to create depth and volume, and showing how different color palettes create different moods and feelings.

Well done!

Crazy Collocations!

Posted: May 8, 2018 in GRAMMAR

Hi everyone!
Sometimes the English language is a bit confusing 😉 is it have or make a party? Do you do or take a photo? Do you do or make an effort? We’ve been working on the different collocations with the verbs take/have/do/make and as it wasn’t that clear, we decided to represent it visually. Some groups did a Venn diagram on the notebook, others did it on their iPad to represent them. Here’s the result. Hope it helps to clear  these collocations.

Regards,

Mª Esther

Hello, everyone!
This is 3rd grade. How are you doing? We are fine and learning a lot of things. We have some questions for you: Where would you like to live? Think big: What about living on another planet? It’s not possible by now but…what about if you could ‘design’ and create your own planet? Imagination is really powerful and we have created our own planets. Here you are pictures of what we have drawn. Soon, we’ll post some of the descriptions. You will really love living there….

Ecosystems

In fourth primary we took to the outdoors to finish off our ecosystems projects in the open air. Once we got back to the classroom, each group presented their findings to the rest of the class.
