A GREEN DAY

Imagen relacionadaAmazing! Everything was green today in our English classroom! There were leprechauns, shamrocks, green clothes, green faces,... We received the visit of an Irish teacher too: Declan Mathews. He explained many things about Ireland and about its most fanmous celebration: St. Patrick´s Day. In the end, we had to answer 10 questions about his talk and we caught a leprechaun! So we got his pot of gold! 
And we all sang the fantastic song "Molly Malone". It really moved us!
Thank you very much, Declan! An unforgettable day!

PANCAKE RACE

Imagen relacionada
Last Tuesday it was Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday in England. A pancake is a thin, flat cake. It is made of batter (milk, flour and eggs) and fried in a frying-pan. It is similar to our "filloa". But people in England usually eats it with caster sugar and a dash of fresh lemon juice. Then they rolled it. Some people add golden syrup or jam.
Many English villages also organice a pancake race, which is great fun. The participants wear an apron, a hat and a frying pan with a pancake. They have to run and flip the pancake over at the same time. And as this is our game of the month, we have all participated in a pancake race at school today. It was very exciting and it was curious to see so many "cooks" running and flipping pancakes all together. Watch this slideshow and these videos and you´ll understand what I mean....

GAME OF THE MONTH

Every month we learn a British phrase and a traditional game to improve our speaking skills and to have fun. We have decided to record the game of this month, based on a catchy rhyme: "Sally go round the sun"
Kids go around in a circle singing this song. When they sing it a second time, they go in the opposite direction. They can keep singing it and reversing their direction as many times as they wish.

SPEAKING ASSISTANT

Yesterday we had the visit of an American boy, Michael Mazzeo who talked to us about his hometown, New York,  and about his family, hobbies, likes and dislikes. Later, we could introduce ourselves and interact with him, and everything in English! 
Michael is doing a volunteering job in our school as a speaking assistant, thanks to a special collaboration with the NGO Axuda en Acción. We really appreciate this kind of initiatives because this way we can be exposed to different native speakers with their particular accents, which will be highly benefitial for our speaking skills. In fact, we can see Michael once a month from now on until the end of the school year. Cool!!! 
Thanks a bunch to Michael and to Bea, the representative of Axuda en Acción in Galicia!!!

HAPPY CHRISTMAS (WAR IS OVER)

"Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" is a  Christmas song released in 1971 by John Lennon and Yoko Ono with the  Harlem Community Choir. The lyrics are set to the traditional English ballad "Skewball".
It was the culmination of more than two years of  peace activism undertaken by John Lennon and Yoko Ono that began with the bed-ins they convened in March and May 1969, the first of which took place during their honeymoon. Also a  protest song  against the  Vietnam War, "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" has since become a  Xmas standard, frequently covered by other artists, appearing on compilation albums of seasonal music, and named in polls as a holiday favourite.
Ad now it will be our performance in the next school Xmas concert to be held in our school concert hall next Friday.
