WHERE DOES THE CAR GO?

In Year 1 this month´s unit is all about different methods of transport. We have talked about how we come to school, which transports are fast and slow, and today in the English Corner we have been talking about whether each of the trasports go on the road, on the sea, or in the sky.

MAGIC TALK

As part of our English classes we are practising our public speaking skills and our ability to speak freely in English with the MAGIC TALK project. It´s a chance for us to practise speaking in English in front of the class and to overcome the fear that we all have of speaking in front of a crowd of people. In Year 3 we are able to talk about all kinds of different things ranging from the story to our families and our favourite animal.

LOOK AT OUR TORTOISE

As we had been studying animals, last week Javier, a student in Year 1, brought in a special surprise to show his classmates, and it created quite a stir! His tortoise spent the day with Year 1B and visited the students in lots of other classes as well. We loved having the chance to see a tortoise up close and personal. 
THANK YOU JAVIER.

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.
