WE ARE NOT CLOSED FOR SUMMER!

We have now come to the end of the academic year and the children have a lovely long summer ahead of them. Even though we are not at school, we want to see what the children get up to. Why don´t you send us videos of the children teaching their friends, brothers, sisters, cousins, mummies and daddies some of the things they have learnt in English this year with Magic Dragon?

You can send things to
magicdragonentreolivos@gmail.com

Here are some ideas, but please feel free to do other things:

colours,
numbers,
the weather,
the seasons and what we do,
how we play,
what we eat,
how we travel,
animals,
things in the town...

A MORNING CATCH-UP

All year we have been practising asking each other questions about our lives and the world around us. Today we went outside and asked our friends some questions about themselves. We think you´ll agree that it sounds like a real-life conversation between a group of friends.

ENGLISH PLAYHOUSE PERFORMANCE

Today all of the extracurricular classes that we have been running throughout the year invited the parents to come and see what we have been learning. One of these classes is English Playhouse, where we sing, play, dance and learn in English. We have had a really fun year and learnt so so much. Thank you to all the mummies and daddies, grandmas and grandpas for coming to see us today. We loved showing you everything we know

Here we have made a short video of some of the things that the children from Playhouse have been working on.

CAN YOU PLAY AND LEARN LIKE WE DO?

Today we wanted to show you how we play with flashcards in the classroom. Aside from having fun, this special game also helps us practise our listening skills in English alongside learning new vocabulary from the unit. The children have also learnt how to make up short phrases about each of the vocabulary items from the unit.

WHAT CAME FIRST?

As part of this months unit about food, Year 3 have been learning about where food comes from. Today we looked at an activity in which we had to organise what came first and think about the provenance of our food. 


The fruit and vegetables come from the farm


The dairy products come from the cow



The fish come from the sea


Spaghetti comes from wheat

WHERE ARE YOU?


One of the things we have been learning recently in English Playhouse is how to describe the location of objects. The children have had great fun dancing into new places and then telling the teacher where they are.

We recorded a video to show you just how clever they are.

This afternoon YEAR 3 went outside and had a picnic in the school garden. We had a wonderful afternoon sharing food and drinks, and practising our English with our teachers outside of the classroom.
