Hello families!

We are sure that you know the famous game called “Guess who”, in which you have to ask questions to your opponent in order to guess who is the person hidden in his or her card.

Well, if you don’t have it, no problem! Today Teacher Melanie and the 6th graders are going to explain you how to make a handmade “Guess who”. The material that you need is:

  • 16 pictures (they can be of your friends, members of your family or famouse people).
  • Scissors and glue
  • Two cardboards of different colors, for example, one red and another one blue.

First of all, you need to cut 16 squares in one of the cardboards. But… be careful! You don’t have to cut them completly, only 3 of it’s sides. They are going to be the “tabs” you need to play the game. Then, you need to cut the photos and stick them in the squares. Finally, you stick the cardboard with all the photos in the other one.

Here you have a photo with the result:

As you can see, they did one using the images of all of them and some famous singers and actors they like. Feel free!

Here you have a photo of two of our students playing it:

We hope you like as much as we do!

See you soon,

Teacher Melanie and 6th graders

Hello families! During the second term, the 3rd graders in l’Arrabassada have been working on a topic they enjoyed a lot: SUPERHEROES! Yes, superheroes! We learnt the different powers a superhero can have, for example: fly, telepathy, becoming invisible, climb walls, run fast…

Hello families!

During the second term, 5th graders in l’Arrabassada have been learing and discovering a very famous English city: LONDON! They learnt the typical food, the timetable they have, the most famous places in the city…

One of the session was dedicated to the London guards: they made a puppet and a poster with all the information about them. Do you know that they are divided into 2 detachments? The Buckingham Palace and St. James’s Palace. Now you know where you can find them!

To end the lesson, they watched a film that was made in London: Agent Cody Banks Destination London, the story about a teen detective. They also recorded a video in which they had to imagine that they were doing a tour around London. Here you have the video, we hope you like it:

See you soon families!

Hello families!

We are 6th graders and Teacher Melanie and we want to explain you how much we enjoy learning and working on a topic that appears everyday and everywhere: social network and Internet!

First of all, they introduce themselves through a selfie:

Then, they created their own “mail boxes”. Every day, before leaving the classroom, they wrote some “e-mails” for their schoolmates. Then, when they finished writing the “e-mails” they sent them using a postbox and a postman called Teacher Melanie. It delivered the messages in the correct mail box. That way, the following session, all the students could read the messages that their schoolmates wrote for her or for him. Here you have a photo of their “mail boxes” and our postbox:

                   

Guess what! Our class also had a Whatsapp group. Everyday, one of the students started with his or her Whatsapp screen. They asked a question about something that they wanted to know about their schoolmates. In a circle, they had to read the previous questions and answers and add their own in order to create a conversation. Here you have an example:

Another network that surely sounds familiar to you is Instagram. Using a projector, they looked for a scenary they liked and they enjoyed a lot taking pictures with their friends. We printed the photos and they “posted” them on their Instagram profiles, creating the description. Here you have:

To end the unit, they did a survey about the use of Internet. They asked questions like: How often do you use the Internet? What do you use the Internet for? Where do you use the Internet? Etc.

And you families? Do you know all the social network you have around you? If you have any doubt… you know, ask our students!

See you soon families!
