There´s no bussiness like show bussiness. Have you ever dreamt of being a performer in a circus? I have. I would like to be a trapeze artist or an acrobat, the problem is my vertigo! But I´ve got a better idea. I´ve got tickets for the Half Moon Circus! Do you fancy coming?
This is what my 6th year pupils did last Thursday, 11th December. We met Meg and her famous grandfather Krusty the clown, and the cruel ring master. Have a look...!

Beatrice, an English girl, visited our classroom last Thursday to talk about the autumn or fall. It was a great day because we learned many things about this season and especially about a cute bear: Paddington Bear. Beatrice was born in London and she lived near Paddington Station, where this famous character appeared. Apart from this, we recited some famous poems and we explained how British people celebrate the most popular autumn festivals: Halloween, Bonfire Night and Poppy Day. Finally, we all ate a delicious marshmallow that Beatrice gave us as a memory of her visit. She told us that we can melt it on  a bonfire... Yummy!!!
Thanks a lot, Beatrice!!!

Today, 11th of October, is International Day of the Girl Child. It was declared by the United Nations on October 11, 2011, for the first time. It is a response to an urgent problem of our world today: the neglect and devaluation of girls around the world. It pretends to create more opportunity for girls because of the gender inequality. This inequality includes areas such as right to education/access to education, nutrition, legal rights, medical care, and protection from discrimination, violence against women and unfree child marriage. The theme of this year 2014 is: 
"Empowering adolescent girls: Ending the cycle of violence"

"On this International Day of the Girl Child, I call on all governments to take action to end all forms of violence against girls in all parts of the world. Together, we must create a world where violence against women and girls is never tolerated and girls are always empowered to reach their full potential. "
Secretary-General of the UNO Ban Ki-moon
