My town

This year is being made very hard for everybody, particulary for all those children who has to stay at home and continue to work.

This month, some of my students has suffered this situation but, all they have overcome or are in the process of overcoming it with the help of their families and classmates.

Students in level 4 wanted to help one classmate with the topics they were studying at school. So, they prepared and recorded a video to learn the prepositions of place. It has been a very rewarding experience for all of us!!!!

Este ano está sendo bastante duro e complicado para todos, en especial para todos os nenos que teñen que ficar na casa e continuar, na medida das posibilidades, co traballo . Este mes, algún dos meus rapaces pasaron por esta situación pero, todos eles ou xa están de volta ou a piques de retomar as clases.

En 4º, os compañeiros dunha alumna quixeron axudala a seguir o ritmo da clase preparando e grabando un vídeo para aprender as preposicións de lugar. Realmente resultou unha experiencia increíble e moi satisfactoria para todos nós.

In spite of the thecnical and connection problems, videoconferencing and interactive educational resources like Genially are being very helpful in keeping in touch with students and families and practising the oral skills.

A pesar dos problemas técnicos e de conexión, as videoconferencias e as ferramentas para a creación de contido educativo como Genially estannos a axudar a manter o contacto coas familias e alumnos e para practicar as habilidades orais a distancia.

THE WEEKEND’S HERE

Hi, everyone!

Let’s start a new unit in Level 5. In this unit we will learn about free time activities at the weekend. We will use adverbs of frequency and talk about how often we do things. Why don’t we start learning the new vocabulary? Take a look at this video and then, have a fun time practising the new words with a quizlet.

Halloween 2020

This year Halloween was celebrated following some measures taken to make our school a Covid-free space because Covid-19 can’t stop us from learning, having fun and sharing meaningful moments!!!

We organized our typical Pumpkin contest in a different way but, I have to say that it was incredibly spooky and creative.

The origins of Halloween

Halloween was originally a Celtic festival, celebrated in the British Isles, called Samhain. The Celts believed that on the last night of October the souls of the dead visited the earth.

The Romans adopted the festival too and it spread.

When the Catholic church began celebrating All Soul’s Day on the first of November, the mass was called the mass of All Hallows, so the evening before was called Hallowe’en, the evening before All Hallows.

Nowadays, Halloween is celebrated in many countries all over the world.
