Red Class

Hello everyone!

It is almost the end of our school year and I would like to tell you about our Red Class progress during last weeks.

At the beginning of the term, we studied the wild animals in English through several games, role-plays, storytelling and songs. We love dance!

We use this song to learn more about actions using wild animals topic:

But without a doubt, our Red Class favourite song is… Walking in the Jungle!

We pretend we are intrepid explorers in the jungle and have lots of fun while playing!

We also take the opportunity to benefit spring time to learn more about the butterflies and their life cycle (from an egg to a beautiful butterflie), and we built our topic around the book «The very hungry caterpillar», by Eric Carle.

We made fantastics storytelling and draws. We already know a lot of interesting things about food and days of the week!

Below you will find an animated version of the book (although we prefer the real book!):

Then we started getting ready for our trip to the farm! We played games using the animals in our classroom and listen carefully for the sounds animals to guess them! It was really funny as it was like a TV show quiz!

During next weeks we will «be immersed» in the deep blue sea in order to know more about the sea animals and, of course, about the summer and swimming!

I would also like to tell you that we are working on phonics in English and we are sooo close to identify all the sounds in group 2 of Jolly Phonics! Bravo!

Orange class

Dear families,

I hope you are doing well! We are almost entering the final stretch of the school year and our little learners from the Orange Class have enjoyed all the activities during the last weeks.

We did not want to miss the opportunity to benefit our garden and park to learn and study the spring and the bugs and all the natural events that the spring brought to us.

We played games, made role-plays and we had to “fish” the insects as well in the class! (Fake insects, by the way).

We also made a spring scavenger hunt in our park! It was so funny and we found out many spring elements such as puddle, ants, leafs and sunshine.

Here some songs they love to mimic and dance:

Then we had to prepare ourselves to visit the school farm so we started learning more about the farm animals in English: sheep, cow, pig, rabbit, duck, cat, horse, dog…

We played several games to identify which animals live in the farm and which animals live in the jungle or in the sea…

We read some books about farm animals and sing along many songs!

Our Orange class is willing to learn, it is incredible!

Old McDonald’s farm has also been a central key to us during this topic so we sing his song along together during all our English lessons. We also had a “stick farm” to hide the farm animals inside and let the other kids in the class guess our hidden animal using sounds! It was really funny!

Steve and Maggie’s videos seem to be so interesting for our kids so we used this one to learn more facts about farm animals:

During the next weeks, we will be focus on the summer topic, getting ready for our holidays 🙂

And… Last but not least… we are glad to announce you that we have started our learning about phonics in English while dancing and singing along with the song below!

We love start or finish our English lessons with this song and playing fun games while learning how to pronounce the phonics in English!

See you soon!

Green class

Hello dear families,

We hope you are having a nice week! Here an update of our kids progress in the Green Class.

Our little learners are willing to learn English and they enjoy the lessons as well as me!

During lasts weeks we have been working on classic English tales such as “The three little pigs” or “The three Billy goats”.

We enjoy our story time moments and we appreciate the time we pass reading together.

We use the books as a line to make activities, free drawings and a looooot of games in the classroom (including vocabulary games, board games or role-plays activities).

Here some of the videos we have watch during these lessons:

As we needed to get ready for our trip to Parapanda, our Green Class has started its study about the farm animals. We have such a good time while learning! We made dances, we sang along and made our own farm animals fingers puppets to dance while singing!

Orange Class

Hello, everyone!
Another week goes by and our little Orange learners don’t stop discovering new things!

After last weeks’ activities, now they are pretty able to recognize and name several names of the animals on the farm.

We gathered and separated into categories the different animals.
We played games in which we had to find the correct flashcard. Very funny!
We practised, as we always do, our Jollyphonics sounds, look how well we make the motions for the «h» sound!

Best of all is that we could put into practise all our knowledge about the animals in the School Garden as well as during the walk we made to La Vega!

Green Class

Hi, everyone!

During this week, we have revised the animals on the farm! We played with a beautiful cookie-catcher and had to pass the tests that were  hidden inside!

 

 

We also spent some time practising our oral and communicating skills, «What’s your name?», «What’s your favourite animal?», «What’s your favourite colour?», «How are you?»…

Finally, on Friday, we had some time to start practising the calendar, so that we know how to say the date in English!
