Today we have been at the school concert hall watching a play in English by Face2Face theatre company. It was a classic, "Robinson Crusoe", revisited in a funnier and more modern version. Hence, we met a champion surfer called Robinson Crusoe, a famous girl who was swept away by a tsunami to a desert island. There she has to manage to survive with the only company of her friend Friday. Does it ring a bell?
Thank you so much to our Parents´Assotiation for giving us the opportunity to improve our English in this amazing way. It was great fun!!! We danced, sang, laughed, jumped and had a fantastic time.
Now take a look at this pictures. Maybe you can see some familiar faces, who knows...

Christmas Jumper Day is an annual fundraising campaign in the UK organised by charity Save the Children. On Friday 14th December this year, people are encouraged to "make the world better with a sweater" and raise funds for the poor by wearing a Xmas jumper and making a minimum donation of £1.
Those taking part can wear a Christmas jumper they already own, decorate an existing jumper with festive decorations, or even knit their own. Christmas Jumper Day is popular with schools and workplaces. 
Save the Children launched their Christmas Jumper Day in 2012 on Friday, 14 December and it has become extremely popular all over the world.
So... prepare your jumper for this Friday. Don´t forget it!!!

It´s that time of the year again... Christmas!!! You can feel it in the air: the lights in the streets, the Xmas trees at home, the candy canes in the shops, ... A good way to count how many days there are left for Xmas is using an advent calendar. There are many types: with chocolates, with small gifts, with drawings... Try this one, it´s full of games. Just click on the letters below the image.

It´s time for vampires, witches, ghosts, skeletons, zombies and some other evil creatures... Scary!!! It is Halloween!!! The night of fear... Have you carved your pumpkins? Do you have your costume ready? What are you waiting for? Remember that, despite it´s an anglosaxon event, it has got celtic origins, so we can find it in Galicia under the name of Samaín.
Today we have had a spooky party at school where we played some funny Halloween games:

- Pass the Mummy
- Blowing the ghost
- The ghost race
- The eyeball dance
- Apple bobbing

It was great fun! And we even recited a magic spell to pass with flying colours!!! Don´t you believe me? Here is the evidence...

Today we have been world travellers thanks to Ingrid Clancy, an Irish teacher who visited our school. We entered the English classroom like in an international land, holding our passports and passing through the Passport Control, where an officer put a stamp on them. Once inside, we interacted with Ingrid about 4 English speaking countries: the UK, Ireland, the USA and Canada. This way we learned about their capital cities, flags, symbols and other curiosities. Finally, we went through the Customs again to get another stamp. It was great fun!!!
Here is a memory of this special day. Thank you so much, Ingrid!!! You are always welcome.
