YEAR 6 FOOD Nº 2 April 1st , 2020.

Hello again!

We hope you are all very well at this beginning of April.

To begin with, I´ll leave you a little story about Krishna and the Fruit Seller,

We´ll continue with a tongue twister,

Proper Copper Coffee Pot

All I want is a proper cup of coffee.
Made in a proper copper coffee pot.
You can believe it or not.
But I want a cup of coffee from a proper copper pot.
Tin coffee pots or iron coffee pots, they’re not good to me.
If I can’t have a proper cup of coffee from a proper copper coffee pot, I’ll just have tea.
All I want is a proper cup of coffee.
Made in a proper copper coffee pot.
You can believe it or not.
But I want a cup of coffee from a proper copper pot.

Try to say it for yourself and record your voices. Then, send them to the English mail.  (Intentar decirlo vosotros y grabar vuestras voces. Enviarlas a nuestro correo de inglés).

And now, just a song…  this explains how we feel about all of you!  Though we are not right beside you, nothing can keep us from you!

Enjoy this message and we´ll connect next week!

Before the song, a special message from Manolo for you and your parents:

Si alguien me preguntase cual considero que es  la canción con el mensaje educativo más importante, yo diría que al menos una de ellas con claridad es esta. Con esta canción puedes “Darle energía a tus hijos e hijas en estos momentos excepcionales que estamos viviendo”. Cuando la escuchas sabes que nadie te va a parar”. Pero es que además esta canción transmite el mensaje de apoyo incondicional que nuestros hijos e hijas necesitan recibir para sentirse seguros: «No hay montaña tan alta que pueda impedirme llegar a ti. Solo llámame, estaré ahí enseguida, no tienes que preocuparte», nos dicen Marvin Gaye y Tammi Terrell.

Es un gran placer mostrarla  para vosotros y vosotras alumnado y familias de Educación Alquería.

Esta canción de Rythm and Blues y Soul fue escrita en 1966 por Nickolas Ashford y Valerie Simpson. Fue grabada por Marvin Gaye y Tammi Terrell un año después. Compuesta al principio como canción romántica  sin duda puede ayudarnos a transmitir amor incondicional a nuestros hijos e hijas con frases como: «Recuerda el día que te dejé marchar/ te dije que siempre podías contar conmigo, cariño».

And in line with our suggestion on Wednesday to get your screen time in English, why not try this weeksite this weekend?

Through this website you can watch TV in English with subtitles!

Enjoy, happy weekend. Remember,  take care and STAY AT HOME.

English in the News

Good morning Year 6- We hope you had a restful weekend!
Let’s talk about something that isn’t COVID19!
We thought we would start the morning with a «real life» activity for you.  In our connected world of screens, phones and computers, we want to share a bit of news with you about old technology and what is happening to it!
Click the picture below to read an article about PAY PHONES IN NEW YORK CITY.  Do you even know what pay phones are?  Do you recognize the picture? 
Read what is in the news about  them, then challenge yourself in the next link to test how well you have understood the REAL news article.

Let us know if this exercise was easy or difficult for you by leaving a comment in the space below.  Have you ever used a pay phone? Have you got a mobile phone?  Let us know!
Happy Monday!

Can you type?

Good morning everyone! Congratulations on nearly completing your first week telecommuting  or «working from home.»

Reminder: Please look at We have renewed worksheets with a mark of 7 or lower, and we have added more worksheets, including weekly reviews!  Stay motivated!  Do a self test!

We are sure there have been unexpectedly wonderful parts of working from home and some complicated ones too.  Since it is Friday, we wanted to leave you not with more homework, but with a link to practice a life skill that you may need more than ever in this new world order.


We figure it is easier to work on a computer if you know how to write properly.  Learning to type is fun, and it makes writing on a computer faster and more accurate.

So, here is a picture that shows you how to position your hands on the «home row.»  This is the line of letters in the middle of a keyboard (teclado) where you keep your hands to type.  If you click on the picture, you will go to a link IN SPANISH to help you learn the basics of typing.

Here is a video to help you:


After you learn the basics, we think you´ll have fun challenging yourselves with these typing GAMES.  For those of you who play lots of video games, you might already have great finger control!

Juegos.  Pincha aquí:

Start to play, and leave us a comment on the blog to let us know how your typing skills progress! Have fun!

Enjoy your weekend! Play, exercise and spend time with your family!

We´ll be back in touch on Monday and we look forward to reading your comments and messages!

All the best, stay well!
