ST. PATRICK´S DAY

Today, St. Patrick´s Day, we have celebrated the national day of Ireland with a special visitor: Declan Mathews, an Irish father of our school. He told us many things about his country, in particular about this celebration, the most popular around the world. We also had to play several games to get the leprechaun´s pot of gold: first we participated in a quiz with 20 questions, and we guessed 17!!! Then we played 3 funny games: "Pin the stem on the shamrock", "The leprechaun says" and "Gold Coin Toss". In the end, we all sang "Molly Mzalone" together and... we got the gold!!!
Thank you so much for your visit, Declan. See you next year!!!
Happy St. Patrick´s Day to you all!!!

BITS OF BRITISH

Today we have had a lesson about the British and their stereotypes. Now we all know what they are fond of and what they are crazy about, and even what they cannot stand. And all of this thanks to Susana, our school English mother. She told us many things we have to do or to avoid when we travel to the UK. But she also mentioned the idea the British have about the Spanish. It was great fun!
We really appreciate her visit. Thanks a lot once again, Susana.
Here is a memory of this "splendid" day.

CARNIVAL TIME!

It´s Carnival time! Who will you be? As you probably know, the school Carnival topic for this year is Spanish dances and we´ll be Galician traditional dancers. It sounds good, doesn´t it? In England Carnival is not celebrated at this time of the year. They have the Notting Hill Carnival, but it´s in the summer. Have you ever heard of it? Have a look at these 2 videos: one gives information about this specific celebration and the other reproduces the main vocabulary of the Carnival. Enjoy them!

ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE

It doesn´t matter who you are or what your thoughts are... All you need is love. If there is a song that represents love, there is no doubt that the winner is this one by The Beatles. It became the hymn of love and peace, of friendship and cooperation amog all races and nations. Take a look at its lyrics...
We are going to watch a version made by voices from 156 different countries, who join together to sing it at exactly the same time as a way os raising awareness of AIDS in Africa: on the 7th of December 2009 at 1:30 GMT.
