Hi everyone,

During this term our 4th grade students are learning and working about different tales and legends around the world. For this reason, last week they have created their “own stories”. They decided about which characters could appear in the story, which traits their characters would have, where the story can take place and the problem their character had to solve. Finally, they have presented their tales to the class.

They have such a good imagination and they have written wonderful stories!

German Sportmen

Posted: April 14, 2012 in Uncategorized

 

Hi, everyone

We’ve come back after the Olimpics and the Easter break ready to talk about the experience of playing sports. In 4th ESO we’re checking out some internationally acclaimed german sportspeople, like, for example, Dirk Nowitzki.

Here’s an anticle about him. It’s in German and there are plenty of adjectives, which is one of the grammar contents we are currently working on.
