We love pizza!

Hi there!

These days we've been learning about the food: we've learned some vocabulary and we have also learned how to use the verb "DO".

      - Do you like pizza?
      - Yes, I do! / No, I don't!

After having talked about different kinds of food we found out that almost all the class loves pizza so that's why we decided to draw a tasty big pizza. 

We really liked listen to these songs while drawing our pizza: "I am a pizza" by Charlotte, "Do you like..." by Super Simple Songs.

As an English teacher I think it's very important to encourage the students to talk in English, even though they make mistakes. That's why we also made a video explaining what were the ingredients of our pizza.


To Love class 💖

Ditty 6è: My town

The last etwinning project we have to do is about 'Our town'.

It's amazing how creative and 21st century our students are!! I explained what we had to do to the students and they had a great idea...
Have you heard about an app called DITTY?  I had never heard about it but that's because I'm old!😅
So some of the students (without being asked) prepared a video about a place in Masnou they had already chosen. They showed it to me and I loved the idea.
So with the ipads we've got in the school, they used ditty to create different videos and they used imovies to put all of them together.
The students themselves did EVERYTHING on their own. They wrote the texts, prepared the video with ditty and sended it to me. We are so proud to show this video to our French and Greek friends!
Remember that with this project we are working some key competences like ICT skills and communication skills!

However, next week we're preparing the 'traditional' presentation. We'll go around Masnou recording some places and explaining what they are and why we go there. So as soon as I've got the 'traditional presentation', I'll show it to you!!

💓 Better late than never: Happy St Jordi! 💓

Last Monday we celebrated St Jordi, one of the most wonderful days of  the year. 

In order to take conscious of the importance of reading in other languages, I brought some books written in English and translated into Spanish. In groups we read them and later we chose our favourite one. 

The books were some of the most popular tales we know: Alice in Wonderland, Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves, the Ugly Duckling, Peter and the Wolf, Rapunzel, Puss in Boots, Sleeping Beauty and Aladdin and the Magic Lamp.

1st grade and 2nd grade.

A midsummer night's dream by Shakespeare

As you know, next April 23rd is 'Sant Jordi' but is it only celebrated in Catalonia or is it a World Day? And why April 23rd?
World Book Day is a yearly event celebrated not only in Catalonia but also around the world.
The connection between April 23rd and books was first made in 1923 by booksellers in Catalonia. The date was to honour Cervantes death date (1616). This date is also when William Shakespeare died (1616).

So in order to celebrate this World Book Day, we wanted to discover a Shakespeare's comedy called 'A midsummer night's dream'. We watched a video about Shakespeare's biography:
Then we watched the play:
We read the plot and we did some comprehension exercises. Finally students had to draw their magical dreams and describe them.

The Lemon Thieves

It’s Pancake Day and Clive Custard, the famous television chef, is presenting his special pancake programme when there is a technical problem. Clive leaves the studio for a moment and...

This is the plot of the play we watched last April 11th in Ca n'Humet theatre. It was fun and we learnt some things while we enjoyed the show.

A Monkey's Tale

On April 11th we went to Ca n'Humet theatre in El Masnou to watch a really funny play.
Look Out! Theatre Company offered us a play called 'A Monkey's Tale'.
We enjoyed it very much and we learnt new things at the same time!
