English in the Time of Corona Virus

Sorry, bad take on Gabriel Garcia Márquez´s title Love in the Time of Cholera….

Nonetheless, the world has not stopped turning, and this too shall pass, so while we are all at home, let’s take advantage of our free time to review and continue to practice all that we are learning in English.

By the time we are back together at school, hopefully, you will have reviewed and practiced any concepts that we have learned or that are difficult for you!  To help you with that, we have new exercises on liveworksheets and we will continue to add them.  Also, we will be posting video lessons and activities on the blog, so please keep checking it. If you have questions or doubts, comment to us on the blog.

Meanwhile, go wash your hands!

Stay in your house, take care of the people you love and stay well!  Take the weekend off, and check this space for work on Monday.

We’ll teach virtually for a while, and we´ll see you on the flip side!

All our best,

Lindley and Manolo

Bueno chicos y chicas, el mundo no se ha parado , esto es solamente un pequeño intermedio en nuestras vidas, así que mientras estamos en casa, vamos a aprovechar para repasar , aprender y practicar   inglés.

Durante este tiempecito que estarás en casita y hasta que nos volvamos a ver en nuestro Colegio, habrás repasado y practicado cualquier concepto y tema en inglés que hemos estudiado juntos y quizás era un poco difícil para tí.  Para ayudarte, además de los cuadernillos de inglés , tenemos que mirar en www.Liveworksheets.com , donde tendrás nuevas actividades para practicar y mantener al día tu inglés.  También habrá entradas en el Blog con nuevos videos.  Así que por favor,  no se te  olvide comprobar diariamente estos dos recursos.

Mientras tanto, lavate las manos muchas veces.

Cuidate y cuida de las personas que amas, escondete en tu casa.

Estamos en contacto contigo virtualmente.

Te deseamos todo lo mejor.

Lindley y  Teacher.

 

Culture Week Wrap Up- Explorers in the Garden

Hi Everyone!  Better late than never, but I apologize for the delay in getting this video of your World Explorer activity to you!  (As you will see, I definitely need more experience in sound, filming and editing videos!)  Despite the quality of work on my end (I’m working on these skills, I promise!), I want to congratulate you again, Year 6 for your efforts during Culture Week.  You did a great job representing world explorers, dressing as them and teaching the other students about some of the historical characters who helped shape the world as we know it!  I hope  you enjoyed it too!

Here is a video of most of you (to those of you whose speeches were cut short, my deepest apologies!!) so you can share our activities with your families.  I hope you enjoy seeing yourselves!

Happy Holidays!

Christmas break is finally here!!  You all deserve a great rest to recover from your intense work this term and to prepare for all the exciting new challenges in term two.

We hope you enjoy a wonderful holiday season with friends and family!  We look forward to seeing you in  the New Year and new decade, at that!  Happy Holidays!

A Very Happy Thanksgiving!

Part of the fun of learning other languages is sharing cultural traditions – after all why learn the language if you can’t also appreciate the culture?

To that end, we celebrated the American holiday of Thanksgiving on Thursday, November 28th.  We spent the day discussing the history of the holiday (the help the Pilgrims got from the Native Americans learning to plant and harvest food in the New World) traditional foods that Americans eat on this holiday, (turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes and of course, pumpkin pie!) and what Americans do and and watch (American football and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.)

In Year 1 and Year 2, we also took a moment to reflect on how lucky we are and the things we are grateful for.  We wrote our messages of thanks and hung them on our «Thanksgiving tree.»

Finally, to round off our celebration, we shared mini pumpkin pies with whipped cream.  The sweet treat was a hit, so here is the recipe for anyone who is interested!  Bon Appétit!

TARTA DE CALABAZA

ANTES DE NADA…

Es conveniente empezar diciendo que el puré de calabaza en Estados Unidos se compra ya enlatado, sin embargo en España la compramos como verdura fresca y la asamos o cocemos. El método más rápido para asarla es lavarla bien, cortarla en trozos. Desplegar papel de aluminio o papel vegetal en una bandeja del horno y poner los trozos bocabajo. Una vez asados, se separan de la cáscara fácilmente con una cuchara. Después, la batimos o licuamos con ayuda de algún aparato. ¡Ahora ya está todo listo para comenzar!

INGREDIENTES

  • 500 gr de puré de calabaza
  • 500 ml de leche evaporada
  • 3 huevos
  • 20 gr azúcar blanca
  • 2 gr de sal
  • 6 gr de canela molida
  • 2 gr de nuez moscada molida
  • 4 de jengibre molido
  • 2 de clavo molido (opcional)
  • 1 Masa de hojaldre ya hecho

INSTRUCCIONES

Mezclar en un bol el azúcar, la sal y las especias. A continuación, batir los huevos y añadirlos. Remover y añadir poco a poco la leche evaporada. Cuando esté todo mezclado, añadimos el puré de calabaza. Extender la masa en un recipiente para horno y poner la mezcla encima del hojaldre. Meter al horno a 170/180 º unos 50 o 60 minutos hasta que se vea cuajada. Se puede comprobar la textura con un tenedor o palillo de dientes. Si observamos que los filos de la masa se están quemando o dorando en exceso, podemos poner papel de aluminio en los bordes para prevenirlo. Podéis disfrutarla aún más añadiendo a la hora de servirla nata montada.

¡Espero que os guste!
