This cartoon by the BBC "Funny Bones" was very popular in The UK. It is the story of 3 skeletons: a big skeleton, a little skeleton and a dog skeleton. They live in a dark dark cellar, down the dark dark stairs of a dark dark house. This episode is titled "Bumps in the night". Very funny!


As we dedicate our Halloween activities to the skeletons, I think it is a good idea to learn the names of our bones in English. In fact, many names are similar in both languages. Have a look at this video. Despite the presenter´s voice, you can learn many things about our human body and the skeletal system, not only their parts but also how to protect it. Quite interesting!

Yes! It´s true! Autumn is here at last! These last days we could feel it in the air: the temperature was chillier, it was very windy and the leaves were swirling all around. And today we have the first storm of the season with strong wind. So why don´t we go over the autumn vocabulary? That can help you write your autumn acrostic poem.

A utumn is here!

U mbrellas and raincoats.

T he weather is rainy.

U nder the trees

M any kids eat apples,

N uts, grapes and figs.

Autumn is NOT here!

What is happening with the weather? It´s 15th October and the temperature is really high. The sun shines even more than in the summer and it doesn´t rain at all! We are in the autumn but the autumn is not with us. Anyway it´s a good idea to go over the words related to this time of the year: umbrella - chilly - rain - leaves falling - boots and jackets - brown and yellow...
Besides this is a fantastic season to go to the forest and observe the changes in the nature. What can we do in the autumn? Lots and lots of funny activities. Have a look at this video and you will see... By the way, the music is "Autumn leaves" sung by Nat King Cole.

Do you have a healthy breakfast every day? Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because we spend about 9-10 hours sleeping without eating anything at all. That´s why our body loses energy and if we don´t get our strenth back we can´t do all our daily activities. Recent research has shown that kids with a proper breakfast can concentrate better at school and get better results.
But what is a healthy breakfast? A healthy breakfast is composed by fruit, a dairy product (milk, yoghurt) and cereal or bread. So don´t forget it!
