Hi everyone!

We are the P4 students from l’Arrabassada. During these weeks we’ve been working and learning about the animals and the colors. How? We started with a story called “Dear Zoo” by Rod Campbell. It’s about a girl who wants a new pet and writes a letter to the zoo asking them if they can send her an animal. The zoo sends her a lot of animals: an elephant, a giraffe, a camel, a lion… but she thinks they aren’t good enough for being pets. Finally, the zoo sends her a dog and it’s the perfect pet!

We’ve learned about the colors too, connecting them with the animals: the frog is green, the elephant is grey…

This has been the last week working on it and we’ve created our own zoo. We’ve colored the animals, always asking for the crayons to the teacher in English.

We are also learning how to ask “What’s your name?” and answer: My name is…. And how to ask: “How are you today?” and answer: “I’m happy/I’m sad/I’m hungry”.

In fact, it’s been a good month for us! It’s been very funny!!!!

Hello everybody!

We are Lucas, Teo, Rubén, Júlia, Jana and Maria.

We want to show you the board game that we have created. It was easy to do and very funny to play.

First of all, we created a draft:

When we had the draft, we created the board on a cardboard and we stuck some questions about subjects in color papers. We also invented the rules of the game.

The following day we played with our game. Here you can see us ready to enjoy it: Read more

Good afternoon!

Here you can see the 4th graders in l’Arrabassada school doing their first “running dictation”. It is a dictation that a lot of people in the academy know. We spliced the class in small groups. There was a text on the wall and they had to run to it, memorize  part of it, go back running to their group and dictate it to their partners.

Hello!

Today I’m going to introduce you to the Pre-primary students of La Vitxeta and their two pets. Each group has a pet that overviews all the session. At the end, the pet decides who has been the best-behaved child and it goes to home with him or her, as a present. The students have to return it to class the next session and explain what they have done together.

All the members of the group decided the name of their pet when I introduced them.

They are all very motivated with these teddies and they always try to get a good behavior.

The Monday-Wednesday group has a mouse they called Red-Nose. The Tuesday-Thursday group has a fat cat they called Tom.

Hi everyone!

In l’Arrabassada, the second graders have studied the animals through the “Silly Suzy Goose” story.

First, they have enjoyed listening to the story about a goose who wants to be different from the other geese. Thus, Suzy starts to imitate other animals: slides like a penguin, jumps like a kangaroo, swims like a seal… . Read more

Good morning!
I’m the p5 graders teacher. As I told you, we are still learning different types of food and animals. Now, we are doing it through a book called “My Favorite Food“. Here you can see a video where our students are singing “Do you like broccoli” song. They really enjoyed it!

Hello!
We are Noemí (5th graders’ teacher) and Maria (4th graders’ teacher).
Here you are our students’ video performing the storybook “Stick Man” by Julia Donaldson.
We all want to wish you a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.
See you soon!

Last month children from 4th 5th and 6th grade from “Escola la Vitxeta” in Reus were working on the sea animals. They were able to research some information in the computer about their favourite sea animal and then show what they found to the class.

After that, we did a lapbook about the storybook “Sharing a Shell”. The lapbook has the characters of the story and what they do on the story. It also includes a picture of the student’s favourite animal under an envelope, where they can keep whatever they want. And finally, it includes a game similar to rock, paper, scissors, but with the characters of the story.

The final products were amazing! Read more

Hello. My name is Xavi and I’m a new teacher in Lockhart Academy. Fist of all I want to apologise for introducing myself a bit late, but I have had some Internet problems.

I have a degree in Pedagogy, and a Master in Educational Guidance. I have studied English since I was a child. I have a very long way to go as a teacher and as a person, but I think that the children can help me to improve, in the same way that I can help them.

One month ago I started teaching English to 4rth, 5th and 6th grade in “Escola La Vitxeta”, in Reus. I am teaching two groups of children full of energy. I hope that we enjoy learning English together with a lot of funny and educational activities. Read more
