RED CLASS

Hi, everyone!

During these last days, we have been putting into practise all that we have learned about animals in the Red Class, focusing on the Sea animals, but also revising previous vocabulary!

Through games, we keep learning new verbs, actions, we get familiar with the words that we already know… And, of course, we enjoy so much in class!

Next week, we will start learning about Summer and the beach, so here you are a video to start with, if you like… 😉

We wrote books!

Hello Year 2!

We thought in this blog entry, we would help you explain to your parents what we have been working on in class recently. So….

Dear Year 2 Parents:

We have initiated a review of all the concepts that have been working on this year in Year 2.  Of course a key part of our learning has centered on learning phonics and tricky words to  initiate reading and writing abilities in English.  We are pleased that everyone is progressing at their own rate!  It is very exciting to see little readers growing and learning!

¡Hola, 2º!

Hemos pensado utilizar esta entrada del blog para ayudaros a explicar en casa lo que hemos estado trabajando en clase durante los últimos días, así que…

¡Hola, mamás y papás de 2º!

Hemos comenzado una revisión de todos los conceptos que hemos estado trabajando durante este curso. Por supuesto, una parte esencial de nuestro aprendizaje ha sido aprender los sonidos y las “tricky words” (palabras tramposas) para iniciar al alumnado en sus habilidades de lectoescritura en inglés. ¡Estamos muy contentas porque todo el mundo está avanzando a su propio ritmo! ¡Es emocionante ver a estos pequeños y pequeñas lectoras crecer aprendiendo!

Other themes that we have worked on this year include different places (through our celebration of European Day of Languages in September, our Mediterranean Culture Week, and the different international holidays and festivals we have celebrated.)  Additionally, we have revised and added to our knowledge about food, transport, actions, the parts of the house, animals, and bodies.  (It’s been a productive, fruitful year in English class!)

Otros temas que hemos trabajado este año incluyen diferentes lugares (a través de nuestra celebración del Día Europeo de las Lenguas en septiembre, nuestra Semana Cultural sobre el Mediterráneo, y las diferentes festividades internacionales que hemos celebrado).

Además, hemos revisado y añadido a nuestro conocimiento muchos conceptos relacionados con la comida, el transporte, las acciones, las partes de la casa, los animales, y nuestro cuerpo. (¡Ha sido un curso muy fructífero y productivo en clase de inglés!)

For our SUPER REVISION activity, we began by reading  Harold and the Purple Crayon!  This classic book written  by Crockett Johnson in 1955 is still relevant and magical today!  The book is about Harold, who takes his supersize purple crayon to dream and draw his many adventures in the moonlight.  We discussed the book, and then asked the students what color crayon they would use to take them on an adventure! Of course, their adventure included saying what transport they used, places they visited, food they ate, and animals that they saw.  What a fun excuse to put our learning to good use!

Para nuestra actividad de SUPER REVISIÓN, empezamos a leer Harold and the Purple Crayon (Harold y el lápiz morado) Este clásico libro escrito por Crockett Johnson en 1955 sigue siendo relevante y mágico aún hoy en día. El libro nos habla de Harold, que coge su lápiz de color morado y con él dibuja y sueña sus muchas aventuras bajo la luz de la luna.

Primero hablamos sobre el libro, y luego hicimos ronda de preguntas para averiguar qué color elegirían para crear su propia aventura. Por supuesto, su aventura debía incluir los lugares que visitarían, qué medio de transporte utilizarían, la comida que comerían y los animales que verían. ¡Qué excusa más divertida para poner en buena práctica todos nuestros conocimientos!

Finally, after discussing our adventures, we set to the task of reading and writing our own fill-in-the-gap books.  Here are some examples of a few pages the students created:

Finalmente, después de charlar de nuestras aventuras, pasamos a la tarea de leer y escribir nuestro propio libro personalizándolo a nuestra manera. Aquí tenéis algunos ejemplos de algunas de las páginas que han creado:

Green Class

Hi, everyone!

This week, the Green Class had so much fun during the English lesson!

We practised our communicating skills by talking between us and with the teacher about the animals, the greetings, the days of the week and the calendar…

Can you guess the word when the music stops?

We also spent some time playing funny games in group!

Finally, we went to La Vega and could put into practise some of the words we had learned (chicken, rooster, ladybug, butterfly…)

Red Class

Hi, everyone!

This week, we finished our activities related to the story The very hungry caterpillar.

Now we know what is a caterpillar, what is a butterfly, a cocoon… Among many other things!

We also practised our listening skills in this funny activity in which the kids had to guess what colour they needed to use to colour the wings of the butterfly  from the clues that I gave them (i.e., «What colour is a tree?», «What colour is the sea?»…) We had a wonderful time!

We also had time to put into practise all the vocabulary about the animals that we’ve been learning during the last weeks, by this and other games we organise in the classroom, it was so exciting to see who was holding Señor Hipo when the music stopped!

Next week, we will continue learning many interesting things about the animals!

Orange Class

Hello, everyone!

During this week, we have been learning about the animals of the farm and, taking advantage of last week’s special topic about books, we have also spent some time «reading» in English. These kids really love reading as well as storytelling workshops!

 

We found many animals in our new books!

 

We practised the sounds of animals in English while we revised the Jollyphonics sounds that we already know.
We listened to the sounds of the animals and had to guess which animal was it! It was really funny!

On Thursday, we made a special class in the park. First, we sang our favourite songs. Then, we performed a theatre in the «Árbol Reunión» where our kids imitated their favourite animals and the rest of us had to guess which animal was it!
