Our body


To revise the body parts we have been learning this week, here you have this video.



And the song " Head, shoulders, knees and toes" you know so well. 
 
 



This week flew by!




We have just finished the unit, My City, and we are about to start a long weekend. In other words, we have a great opportunity to explore all the wonderful places that our city has to offer. Perhaps we could visit the Retiro, the Plaza Mayor, or maybe the shops in our neighborhood such as the butcher's, the baker's or the chemist's, so as the kids can see first-hand the things that we have been learning about.




Well done Lucía! Congratulations! 



Exam time again!! 

  
Let's revise a bit of vocabulary. Don't forget to use the online book and  the CD, in the case of English.

The Chestnut Seller


Once upon a time, there was a chestnut seller called Maria...





Wonderful time in the library!!!


 

Halloween


Halloween is rapidly approaching, and kids are already getting excited. To get familiar with some vocabulary related to this tradition, we can watch this video.



Wonder


We’re All Wonders may be Auggie’s story, but it taps into every child’s longing to belong, and to be seen for who they truly are. It has been the perfect way to talk about empathy and kindness in our classroom.After all, we’re all different in our own way and we’re all wonders too.

ABC

Little by little we will master the ABC and this video is a very nice complement to our class activity. It teaches us the names of the letters, the sound that each letter makes and it also gives us some words and pictures that correspond to each letter.

Our school and our classroom!

A different way to visit our school and a nice way to learn the different names of the rooms at school. This gives you the opportunity to review unit 1 and to enjoy the video.Who is Pozuel? It´s me !!! Different name for different things .That's cool.
 


A new week is about to start and new challenges are waiting for all of us in our creative classroom


School supplies


We begin to learn the different objects of our class and this video serves a useful purpose.


What a tantrum!

Roberto's VERY BAD DAY gets even WORSE when the Temper Tantrum Monster explodes & Roberto hurts the things he loves!Temper tantrums are common and often a normal part of kids growing up while learning to deal with their emotions.Our goal is to teach them socially appropriate ways to deal with his big feelings.The book we have read has delighted our first graders.

Happy weekend!



Our lovely city has beautiful places to enjoy and  learn.La Casa de Campo, El Retiro...with the trees, lake, playground areas and the view of the city are amazing. I think they are  very nice places to enjoy in a bright weekend as this one.
This beautiful song will help to review the colours.

 

A new story!


The squirrel Saltarina lived in a nest made of branches and pieces of cloth that her parents had collected here and there. When her parents left, they left her with her sister Brincapinos, who, being older, could take good care of her. But Saltarina was very unpleasant with her. A story about guilt and responsability.

Learning numbers!




Learning numbers in a variety of ways; songs, games, colouring...

We all need to learn



The change in learning is happening now.New tools, new practises make these events Escuela de Profes a perfect scenario to share, discover, update in digital competence and keep learning.



The little school in the green




Lo que pudiera parecer el título de un cuento, hace referencia al centro escolar en el que, desde el 16 al 27 de abril de 2018, he realizado una estancia profesional del MECD.




Profondsart es una escuela rural de enseñanza libre y católica  situada en Limal, en  la Región del Brabante Valón (Bélgica).Este centro de Infantil y Primaria acoge 326 alumnos de edades comprendidas entre los 2,5 años y los 12 años.
Si bien hay diferencias organizativas, curriculares y espaciales significativas, han sido las metodológicas y la autonomía de los niños  lo que más  me ha llamado la atención.
Las clases tienen una duración de 50 minutos y en ellas predomina más lo práctico que lo académico, el trabajo en equipo y por parejas que el   individual y los proyectos frente los libros de texto. La presencia de lenguas extranjeras está limitada al Neerlandés en 5º y 6º de Primaria.
El ambiente, en general, es relajado, silencioso, muy respetuoso y como observadora diría que los niños están felices y se sienten motivados. En ningún momento he visto frustración por notas, desaliento por deberes interminables, competitividad,  prisas y papeles para todo y para todos. Los miércoles, los alumnos  tienen únicamente media jornada escolar y los profesores programan las reuniones y actividades.
La observación de clases diarias de diferentes materias, cursos y profesores ha sido muy estimulante y motivador permitiéndome compartir experiencias e intercambiar impresiones y metodología. He tenido un papel activo en la biblioteca escolar mediante  animaciones a la lectura en lengua  francesa para distintos grupos y niveles y en la realización de un libro digital con los alumnos de cuarto.
A modo de síntesis, esta experiencia me ha aportado un enriquecimiento personal, profesional y lingüístico, permitiéndome ver mi centro con una mirada e ilusión renovada.

World Water Day, on 22 March every year, is about focusing attention on the importance of water.


The water cycle
