English Speaking Time

The purpose of the Speaking Time sessions is to naturally and playfully encourage the learners to acquire vocabulary and essential expressions in English. By making use of games, songs, theatre play, and storytelling through picture books and videos, we encourage the spontaneous use of the language. Let´s look at the past week´s Speaking Time sessions to how this has been done.

¨This week we´ve had so much fun learning about different modes of transport. Look at the exciting story our teachers showed us! We all go travelling by. This sing-along song include all sorts of different modes of transport and the different sounds they make!

In addition to the story, we also played a lot of games. Some of us really like competitive games, so we were very happy to play transport bingo. We enjoyed working in teams to complete the different transport puzzles and we helped each other to remember the English name before one of the other teams can do so.

Another game we were very good at was spotting the similarities and differences on the electronic white board. We could identify the shapes and shadows of the different modes of transport and also tell when there´s one picture that doesn´t fit or complete the grid when there were certain pictures missing.

 

Above all, what we enjoy the most, is moving our bodies when our teachers say the following:

  • Spin like a helicopter
  • Pedal your bicycle
  • Fly like a plane

Now that we know so much about different modes of transport, remember to ask us to teach you the English names when we walk past a car, a train, a bicycle or see a plane in the air!¨

Tots els camins porten a Roma

Aquesta setmana els alumnes de Parvulari hem marxat d’excursió com a activitat final del nostre projecte Ubuntu: Els Romans.

Quan hem arribat a Can Coll ens esperava un romà que porta molt temps per Collserola buscant el camí cap a Roma, i ens ha demanat la nostra ajuda. A través d’una gimcana i després de gaudir dels jocs i les proves que ens havia preparat, hem pogut descobrir que ….Tots els camins porten a Roma!!

Hem pescat, hem fet conserves en sal, mosaics, jugat a la “Gallina Cega”, creat murals, i un munt de coses més!

Després d’acomiadar el romà, hem dinat amb els companys dels grups Ubuntu i hem jugat una bona estona gaudint de la natura!!

Ens ho hem passat molt bé!!!

El país de les lletres

098aeca1-ef8e-4422-aeb7-f7124cb2d64b

Durant aquest segon trimestre i fins acabar el curs, els nens i nenes de P5 ens estem endinsant en el país de les lletres. L’heu visitat alguna vegada? Nosaltres hem viatjat fins allà i ens hem adonat que en aquell país només hi viuen lletres! No hi ha persones, ni animals, ni plantes…NOMÉS LLETRES!

153029c3-ad03-4edd-91be-5fe518a4e202

Però no viuen totes juntes: hi ha un gran castell on hi viuen les consonants i una caseta molt maca i petiteta on viuen 5 germanes: les vocals.

Cada setmana, un nen és l’encarregat de presentar una consonant, i amb una dinàmica que ha preparat a casa, ens explica a tots quin és el seu nom,  quin so fa,  com s’escriu, i ens fa pensar en paraules que la contenen.

D’ aquesta manera, de la mà dels companys i de forma significativa, anem coneixent totes les lletres i aprenent a llegir i escriure paraules. Quina feina tan difícil però tan interessant! Ens encanta passejar pels carrers i per l’escola perquè ja anem llegint tot el que posa. Que grans som ja!

Movement and expression workshop

In the movement and expression workshop we have a lot of fun.

First of all, we do some warming activities in order to stretch all parts of the body to start with energy.

In these sessions we focus mainly working on:

  • Motor coordination
  • Laterality
  • Body mastery
  • Balance
  • Muscle tone

We use different materials such as hoops, shoulder pads, bricks, cones, mattresses, balls…

 

We also play a lot of games and dance to different songs!

To finish the sessions we listen to relaxing music while we lay on the floor or we do massages in pairs.

 

 

Els romans: Celebració de l’aprenentatge

ded51fed-05ad-47ea-863c-a9499cbdb567

Aquesta setmana hem rebut una visita molt especial! Amb motiu de la celebració de l’aprenentatge del nostre projecte d’Ubuntu, les portes del Parvulari s’han obert per tal que, pares i mares, poguéssiu visitar els nostres espais d’aprenentatge Ubuntu. Us hem explicat  tot allò que hem aprés de la civilització romana. També us hem mostrat tots aquells treballs que hem fet dels romans:  un Coliseu i un Circ de cartolina, el joc de bitlles romanes,  les nostres peces fetes de fang,..i moltes coses més!

Ha estat molt emocionant compartir amb vosaltres aquest moment on heu pogut evidenciar què i com aprenem totes aquestes coses noves!!!

Pintamúsica visited us!

img_1750

Last Friday a group of musicians came to visit us, the kids of p3. We went to the auditorium and sat in the chairs. We were so excited for the concert and finally it began. It was amazing!

The concert was not only about music but also we saw art. When the musicians were playing the instruments like piano, saxophone, trumpet and the flute, they were drawing on a white sheet, it was magical! We could not stop watching it with huge eyes; we were like owls watching everything around us!

They sang so many songs about the seasons and they sang one that we learnt for the grandparent’s day! We could sing with them and we did a very good job!

Then, they gave us instruments that looked like small eggs, we did not know what it was for, but when we shook it, they made sounds. With these new instruments we could accompany the musicians in their concert! We had so fun!

It was a pleasure that they could come to our school! We had a nice time! Thank you very much.
