Human rights

Article 1: We are all born free and equal. Therefore...
Article 2: Don't discriminate!

What can you do to observe these articles? You could play all together, don't you think so?
Remember: don't discriminate any of your classmates.

Rights of the child

Rights of the child. Article 31:All children have the right to play.
Do you really think all children in the world can play happily?
If we can play when we are children, why doesn't every child have the same rights?

The Convention on the Rights of the Child was held twenty years ago. Do you really think that we have achieved all these rights twenty years later?

Apples for Halloween

Halloween is here again! It is a traditional festival celebrated all around the world. Some cultures celebrate All Hallows Eve on 31st of October. And some others celebrate All Saints Day on 1st November.

Pumpkins are popular in the USA to celebrate Halloween on 31st October but in England, the traditional fruit for Halloween is the apple.
If you want to have a Halloween party in the English way you need to play bobbing for apples and to eat toffe apples.

Follow these instructions to play the bobbing for apples game:
1. Fill a big tub with water.
2. Add apples and they float.
3. Put your hands behind your back.
4. And get hold of an apple with your teeth.

And eat this delicious traditional food: toffee apples.

Dear children,

Time flies, summertime is over and it's time to start a new school year.


It's time to meet your friends, play and learn! You can do lots of things at school: play hide and seek at break, talk to your classmates and teachers, play on the computer, dance and sing, speak foreign languages, go on trips, solve maths problems, investigate, write reports... It's fun!
I will visit you to see how good you are at English too. Because changes happen when we don't expect them and I am not coming back to school with you this year. Like children in Year 6 I am going to change school too. But I won't forget you so I promise I will visit you.
I hope that we keep in touch through this blog and I will still try to post some new activities so that you keep learning English online too.
I am going to miss you!
Enjoy your time at school and remember that we like English!

Our blogfolios!

Children in Year 4 and in Year 6 have got a blogfolio. What is a blogfolio?
It is a blog done as a Portfolio! Do you like it? We really love our blogfolios!

Therefore, these children have worked hard on their blogfolios. We have just started the project but we are going to continue it next school year.

Have a look and see all what they can do!

Introducing myself... Summary of Primary English syllabus

We finish each school year checking what we knew and what we have learned during the school year. And a good activity to join all we can do in English is introducing oneself.
Now, students in Year 6 have added to their introduction the past simple and the future with going to. Obviously, it's not possible to add each lesson to this activity, but it is possible with some of the main topics.
Here you can listen to these two hard-working girls who can introduce themselves brilliantly. And it is a summary too of what children can say in English when they finish Primary education.



What are you going to do ...?

And, it's time to make plans too. Children in Year 6 finish Primary school now, and they talk about their plans for the future.

What are you going to do this summer?

What are you going to do after the summer holidays?

What are you going to do next year?

Dear children,
I'm going to miss you!
Good luck at secondary school!

What did you do at school?

Now that the school year is about to finish, it's time to check. We have been checking the past simple. Children in Year 6 explain what they did at school. Well done, children!

What did you do at school?

Happy Mother's Day!

Dear Mummy,
Thank you for taking care of me!
I love you so much!

Today is Mother's Day in Spain. Don't forget to congratulate your mum. You can do it online:

Remember that your mommy is the woman who takes care of you. So, you can also congratulate your grandma or your auntie.

And you can play here with your mum. Have fun together!

What gift have you given your mummy? This is my suggestion:
1. A big kiss
2. A bigger hug
3. The most important promise:
Mummy, I promise I will always do my homework and study hard!

And finally, watch the video.

Mums make it all better:

By the way, is today Mother's Day in England? No, it isn't.
They celebrate Mother's Day on the fourth Sunday in Lent. So this year Mother's Day was on 22nd March.
