Picasso's Guernica

Picasso painted Guernica in 1937. Have you ever seen it? You can see it here.
Guernica is an anti-war symbol. Picasso painted people suffering. He didn't like war and we don't like war either.

But, now you have the opportunity to get into the picture. Is it possible? Yes, it is! Watch the video...

Interviewing my friend project. Year 6.

During the first term, Year 6 students haven been asking and answering.
Now we have joined all the lessons in one final project: Interviewing my friend. In pairs, all students have prepared fifteen questions to ask their friends. All of them have played both roles: the interviewer and the interviewee.
In each interview students start asking the name, age, place of birth, and favourite colour. Then they all have invented ten more questions using the verbs to be, have got, can, and do.

Good work, children! Excellent!
Listen to the following examples:

First, Tania starts asking and Claudia answers.


Then, Claudia asks and Tania answers.


Listen to Ibra and Brandon.





Now, listen to Javi and Alvaro.






All of us can ask and answer. We are so happy that we all can do it!
