Here we are! the 5th graders from l’Arrabassada.

These weeks we’ve been working with a storybook called “The True Story of the Three Little Pigs” by Jon Scieszka. It’s not the story everybody knows…it’s the real story which shows us the Wolf’s version. After the storytelling we started working hard with the vocabulary and with the characters. We had to match some words that described the characters with them. We also worked in groups, trying to sorting sentences by reading them and organizing the story.

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!!!!

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.

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 everybody!

My name is Cristina Rodríguez and I work as a teacher in l’Arrabassada School with 5th, 2nd and P4 graders. I’ve studied at URV to become and English teacher and I finished my degree last year. I’m 22 years old and I’m from el Vendrell. I’ve thought a lot about what I can say about me in this presentation and I think that the most important thing that you should know is that I’m very excited about working in Lockhart Academy and sharing moments with my workmates and my pupils in l’Arrabassada School. I’ve been working with children since I was 16 (well, I really started when I was 7 and my sister was born! I was always teaching her new things!).

I love dancing, traveling, taking photos and I love “human towers” too (castells). I’m very involved in it because I’m part of the “canalla’s team” in El Vendrell. We try to teach them how to climb up in a human tower but the most important thing that we want to show them is that we must be a team and trust each other, to meet our common goals.

As you know, I have an e-mail address where you can write me every time you want!

I hope your children enjoy a lot learning English with me!

My best,



Here we can see the P5 students from Arrabassada school. They are singing “We wish you a merry christmas”.

These days, they designed their own christmas tree costumes and they did many christmas activities while they continued learning the colours and some new vocabulary.
