Portfolio: Interview with a friend

In this occasion, the task consisted on writing about a friend’s tastes. First, children had to develop and implement a short survey that provide information about their friends’ likes, dislikes, and special interests.Then, they wrote a report using all the information gathered in the interviews.

I like this type of tasks because they let students use all they are learning in a real contest  giving meaning to our daily and long term work.

Thanks children in Level 5 for collaborating with us!

Nesta ocasión, a tarefa consistiu en escribir sobre os gustos dun amigo. Primeiro, tiveron que elaborar unha enquisa e entrevistar a un amigo maior elexido por eles para obter información que logo usaron para escribir un informe real.

O motivo polo que empregamos este tipo de tarefas é porque nos proporcionan un contexto real no que aplicar o que estamos a traballar na aula dándolle sentido ao noso traballo diario.

Gracias aos rapaces de 5º por colaborar nesta tarefa!

First step: The interview allows to develop the oral skills and provides us a good opportunity to check, correct and improve.

Second step: The report allows to develop the writing skills

Portfolio: My family

Children love talking about their families so I can say that this is one of the portfolios in which children are most interested in. With this small project, they enjoy drawing and ,as the same time, the can practise how to introduce people and how to talk about  feelings. At the end of this work, they feel really proud of their works because their families are the centre of their world. Listen to them.

Aos rapaces encántalles falar dar súas familias asi que podo afirmar que esta é un dos portfolios no que máis interesados están. Con este pequeno proxecto, gozan debuxando e´ao mesmos tempo, practican as presentacións e e como falar dos sentimentos, Ao final do proxecto, están realmente orgullosos do seu traballo pois as súas familias son o centro do seu mundo. Escoitádeos.

Letters from Level 4

These last weeks, students in level 4 have been learning  how to talk about on-going actions. In order to practise their writing and oral skills, they wrote a letter about their families at the weekend first and then they read it aloud  to the rest of the class. This type of activities provides a great opportunity to learn from and correct the mistakes and improve.
