They enjoyed the story very much. They asked me for telling the story again and again every day and, at the end, they knew the dialogue perfectly. So, we decided to make a storytelling. Every one had to learn a part of the story and had to read it to the camera. I think they did […]

Hi there!

Today is the last day that I can write about the summer courses for children because tomorrow is the last day of class!

This week we have done different activities related to different storybooks.

On Monday, we started with the three little pigs. As they all know the story, they organised themselves to explain it to the teacher. Then, they played the three little pigs board game. It was the first time that they played this game and they liked it so much! After this, the teacher explained them The true story of the three little pigs, and they were amazed of that change of perspective!

On Tuesday, they saw the video of The smartest giant in town, a storybook about a giant who is so kind that he gives all his new clothes to other animals. Then, these animals create a poem for him. And that’s the poem that our students learnt. Each of them had a part of the poem and they had to perform it creating all the material that they needed. Read more


Here am I, ready to show you more activities that we have done!

On Thursday we created some masks related to the song “a dragon on the doorstep“. Apart from creating them with different materials, we did a small representation of the song. Here you can see them preparing the masks:

Good afternoon!

I would like to show you some images where you can see the summer course students working, learning English and having fun.

Here, they were working in pairs. They had 4 images with different food and they had to write a description of the images (of course, it was super secret!). Then, they read the descriptions and the other teams had to guess the name of that food. They liked it, and they learnt some important vocabulary related to descriptions!

Hello! We are Júlia, Arnau, Asser, Gemma and Maria, the teacher. Yesterday, we started the summercourse and we want to show you some different activities that we have done.

First of all, we started talking about ourselves and then talking about robots and technology. We created a robot with toilet paper rolls. We built them and we painted all the structure. It was really funny!

After the robots activity we saw an american’s got talent video and we commented each talented person. They were amazing! Of course, we decided to do our own talent show and that’s what we did this morning after having prepared it beforehand at home. Gemma sang a song, Júlia danced, Asser whistled and Arnau played with the spinning top.

Now, we’ve just seen an ukraine’s got talent video. There was a woman creating different landscapes with sand! And that’s what we are doing now, we are creating a landscape with many material from the academy. Of course, all the communication is in English!

Here you can see the result:




See you soon!




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!!!!

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
