Hello families! How are you? The students of P4 and P5 from l’Agulla have been studying the body during this term. They have learnt a lot of things. They have studied the different parts of the body and the face, for example: toes, mouth, nose, arms, hands… well, a lot! Feel free to ask them […]

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!

Hello families!

During the month of February, 6th graders in l’Arrabassada have been very hungry… they have been working on a delicious topic: FOOD!

First of all, they learnt the different verbs that the real chefs use in their daily lifes:

Then, in pairs, they created four restaurants: they invented a name, a logo, a menu, the kind of food, the prices… then, they did an exposition and we voted for the best one.

We also practised the vocabulary that you need if you go to a restaurant as a costumer or, in the other way around, if you work as a waitress. Here you have some examples:

  • Hello, we want a table for eight please.
  • Here you go, would you like to see the menu?
  • Yes please, we are very hungry.
  • Are you ready to order?
  • We’d like fish and chips please.

An activity that they really liked was creating an original dessert. With some tasty ingredients, each student made a delicious cake and, as you can see in the photos, they became real chefs during all the sessions!


If you want to try their cakes… ask them for the recipies!

A sweet goodbye,

6th graders and Teacher Melanie

Hello families!

Now that the first term has finished, we want to explain an activity that 5th graders have been doing during the three months and that they are going to continue on January.

A weekend’s notebook! Every Wednesday, one student takes the notebook to his-her house. She or he can explain anything she or he wants about his weekend, using photos or pictures. Then, on Monday, he or she reads and explains it to the rest of the class.

They enjoy doing it because this way they can share their weekends with their friends, explaining their hobbies or the different places they have visited.

Here you have some examples:


See you soon!
