Guess what? Next 21st of February we will go to a Dani Griffin´s concert. Remember that he is an American musician who plays the drums with Fito y los Fitipaldis. Besides he is the author of many songs in some English textbooks for kids. And mainly he is very very funny. We are going to have a great time that day. Sure!

But we have to make a little effort and learn his songs. Here is a link to another blog that contains some of his songs with the lyrics: it´s called "Little Bloggers" and it´s really good. Thanks to Aurora Jove, one of the English teachers at CEIP. Ponte dos Brozos in Arteixo, who runs this blog.

Next Sunday, January the 30th, it will be the School day of Non-Violence and Peace. It is observed on January 30 every year, on the anniversary of the death of Mahatma Gandhi, one of the peace makers. Its basic message is: “Universal Love, Non-violence and Peace. Universal Love is better than egoism, Non-violence is better than violence, and Peace is better than war”.

This year I want you to think about a sentence that explains what peace means for you. You can start writing "Peace is ...". Try to be creative, original and imaginative. Maybe the next slideshow can inspire you. Later, once you get your idea, you are going to make an online poster adding an image to your phrase.

1.- helps you become an interesting person
2.- helps you learn how to write correctly
3.- develops your imagination
4.- entertains you
5.- teaches you about things unfamiliar to you
6.- takes you to places you have never visited
7.- takes you to times you have never experienced
8.- introduces you to people you have never met
9.- introduces you to new ideas
10.- is FUN!!!

And the third book we have to read is about SHARKS AND DOLPHINS. I don´t like sharks at all, that´s why I was looking for a video about dolphins. This one is really awesome: you can see how dolphins hunt. It´s a clip from Planet Earth- Ocean Deep. Have a look...

The second of the three books that we are going to read this school year is about CAVES. On this video of the prestigious television series Planet Earth by the BBC, you can see a parachute jump in the largest cave in the world. Amazing!

Now that we are reading some small books in English, I want you to watch some videos about them. The first one is a documentary by the National Geographic that will helps you understand the story of Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas, in Peru.

Yes! The Three Kings are nearly here! Their majesties Melchior, Caspar and Balthasar are coming with lots of presents for all us. We have to wait just one more day and that´s it! Meanwhile enjoy this fantastic book titled "Love came down at Christmas". It´s about the birth of Baby Jesus and includes the moment when the Magi go to worship him! Pay attention to the beautiful rhyme and to the wonderful illustrations.
