CAN YOU PLAY WITH ME?

As part of each unit we study, we also learn a new story to help us put the new vocabulary we learn into context and to continue familiaring ourselves with the English language. This month´s story was about a hippo who wanted to find someone to play with in the jungle, and the children in Year 2 had great fun acting out the story with their classmates.

HOW WE WORK AS A CLASS

Year 2 have been learning about different animals that live in the jungle and the characteristics of these animals. This week we had to do a worksheet about these animals, using a punch to select our favourite one and then putting all the animals together to see which one was the most popular animal in the class. We wanted to show you step by step how we use these worksheets to inspire us to speak and produce opinions in English.

JUMPING LIKE FROGS TO FIND THE ANIMALS

Here at Entreolivos we like to do lots of different activities to help us learn vocabulary and continue to develop and explore our knowledge of the english language. In this video, the children in year 1 are showing us how they can jump like frogs to different pictures representing this month´s topic: animals on the farm. We are also able to tell you what each of these animals give us.

WHO CAN YOU SEE IN THE POSTER?

With each of our different units comes a different story, different songs, and a different poster to help us visualize the new vocabulary in real settings. Here you can see how some children from Year 1 practise using the poster with the teacher in their classroom.

THE IMPORTANCE OF PHONICS

As you know from the parent´s meeting last night and from having seen other videos on the blog, at Entreolivos we are studying phonics as part of our Magic Dragon English project. Learning the sounds in English is really important for us as we grow and our mouths develop, and by starting now we are getting a huge advantage and making the most of our natural ability to produce almost any sound imaginable. By learning these sounds within the context of words we are improving our pronunciation, working on our vocabulary, and, of course, having lots of fun!
