Hello everybody! Welcome to the English blog, a site where we share activities and news about the English area. The teachers, Olga and Sandra, love English and children will love it too. Let’s enjoy it!
Let’s talk about California!
5th grade students are learning about some cities in the world.
Michelle and Ana came to our school to tell us about California and some curiosities. Students listened American English and they participated actively trying to speak in English all the time. Thank you Michelle and Ana for coming!
What time is it?
We’ve got lot of games to practise the time. They know how to tell the time perfectly! Well done!
We love ICT!
We practise ICT in the mobile classroom with the laptops. We spend a fantastic time and students practise English in other way.
Our comics with Pixton!
Students of 5th grade created a comic with the App Pixton. Last December, they designed in classrooom their comic with the characters, dialogues and scenes that they chose. Now, the comics are displayed in our corridor. Look at the pictures. They are amazing!
Here you can watch a video of the activity that students of 5th and 6th did for the Peace Day!
Teachers use many different ways to evaluate. In this case, we did a Kahoot to evaluate telling the time. 4th grade students must complete a template with the correct anwers. They did it excellent!
Funny dictation in 5th!
Look how students of 5th do this activity to practice the 4 skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing!
Let’s practice numbers with BINGO!
A good way to practice and remember the numbers in English is playing the game Bingo. Students of 3rd grade do it amazingly!
Telling the time!

Post it game!

Learn to play and play to learn!
In our English classes, we learn playing lots of different games. In 3rd grade, we play the game ‘Guess my name’ to practise the grammar structure: Has she got….? Yes, she has or No, she hasn’t. Students learn and practise English at the same time that they play.
Theatre in English!
The students of Primary Education enjoyed the plays in English ‘The teeth, the mouse and the monster’ for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades, and ‘The time machine’ for 5th and 6th grades.
Everybody spent a fantastic time and they participated actively!

On Halloween, we read the fantastic story Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson.
A well-known witch came to our classes for the storytelling and we took some pictures with her and her broom, wand and bow!
The students from 5th and 6th grade have spent great days at the end of the year trip: English Week. During this week they have a lot of fun, they have shared, laughed and learnt a lot together. A very positive experience for all that they will remember forever.

Until next time!
