What a busy day! The Easter holiday is about to start, but first we went on an Easter egg hunt in the playground. Some eggs were very difficult to find but we did it! We all wore our beautiful Easter bonnets and the school was very colourful. Luckily it didn´t rain, although the sky was completely covered with grey clouds. A fantastic end for a long term! Welcome spring!
Happy Easter everyone! Enjoy your holidays!

Amazing! Everything was green today in our English classroom! There were lots of leprechaun´s traps, shamrocks, gold coins, green clothes, green faces,... We received the visit of an Irish man 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! Delicious gold chocolate coins! 
And we all sang the fantastic song "Molly Malone". It really moved us!
Thank you very much, Declan! An unforgettable day!

Today, the 17th of March, is Saint Patrick´s Day, the patron saint of Ireland. It´s celebrated all around the world. Many famous buildings are lit up in the green colour in honour of Ireland. This year the Tower of Hercules joins to this celebration due to our Celtic roots.There are also big parades, people wear green and, in Chicago, the river is dyed green. Yes! They use food colouring. Have a look...
Oh! Don´t forget to sing one of the most famous folk Irish songs: "Molly Malone"
Happy St. Paddy´s day!!!

Saint Patrick´s Day is round the corner. Get ready for this celebration preparing your leprechaun´s trap. Try to be original and to innovate as much as you can. You can make it on your own or you can gather in groups. If you need a bit of inspiration, here are some ideas. Good luck!
Oh! And don´t forget to wear green next week.

After learning about the ancient Romans for two weeks, we finally received the visit of some of them coming the past. They were very nice: they explained us some aspects of their life and they taught us some of their favourite games. We played TIC TAC TOE, KNUCKLEBONES, ODD or EVEN, LEAPFROGS, ... We had lots of fun! It´s curious, because some Romans looked very like some of our classmates, or even like our teacher. Hummmm... Extrange...
