Have you ever wondered how a school day is for a British kid? I suppose there is not much difference between British and Spanish schools, but there are some curiosities you may want to know. Have a look at these videos.

What is your favourite subject? And your least favourite subject? We all have different likes and that´s why we prefer one subject to another. But... how much do you know about every subject? A lot? ... Not much? ... This is what happens to Sam Cooke, the singer of this famous song. Enjoy it!

And this is the end.... After a lot of laughter, fun, games, letters, videos, exams and homework, it´s time to say goodbye. You will start a new adventure in September, but always remember that a part of you is here, in Emilia Pardo Bazán Primary School. There is a Japanese legend that says that everyone of us have a red string tied around our pinky finger which connects us with all the people who have been important for us. Well, my red string of fate is connected to all and every one of you... I will miss you!!!
But remember... it´s not goddbye, it´s... SEE YOU LATER!!!

And with the school year about to finish, we have spent our last English lesson playing 2 typical games: Scavenger Hunt and Sally go round the sun.
To play SCAVENGER HUNT we had to go to the school playground and look for ten spring items: a leaf, a stick, a flower, a shamrock, a berry, a feather, green grass, ... The first team completing the list was going to be the winner, but the truth was that all the teams were really fast. So... no winners and no losers. After collecting all these things, we created a masterpiece with them. Take a look...
SALLY GO ROUND THE SUN is a Canadian folk song to play and sing in a big circle, keeping the beat with your feet. We had already learned it with the music teacher so... this time was easy-peasy!

Today, 20th of June, is World Refugee Day. We live in a world where war and violence force thousands of families to flee from their countries in really hard conditions. To make people concious about this situation, on this day we commemorate the strength, courage and perseverance of millions of asylum seekers. Stop for a minute and take a look...

Once more we received some foreigners at school: 3 teachers from Ireland, in concrete from Carlow Educate Together Primary School. They were Erin, Mark and Clionna.They wanted to know our experience in the teaching of Galician and see some lessons in order to take some ideas to implement in their own school with Irish. So they participated in different activities, all of them in Galician: They made a kiss in an origami lesson with 6th year, they learned about Carlos Casares with 3rd year, they saw a drama rehearsal with 6th year, they listened to some poems and songs with 5-year-olds, they danced, the collected plants and flowers for May Day, they watched a typical Galician lesson in 2nd year ... Exhausting but very gratifying!!! 
Thanks a lot for your visit!!! We hope to see you again... In fact, we already have penpals in their school!!!

Today it is World Book Day, a celebration of authors, books, illustrators and editors. Some centuries ago, on the 23rd of April, two great writers died: one in Spain, Miguel de Cervantes, and the other in England, William Shakespeare. Both wrote many works, very well known all over the world. Besides, today the English celebrate St. George´s day, patron saint of England.
And that´s why we have had the honour to receive the visit of Susana Zas, an English teacher in the School of Languages, who came to tell us about these two celebrations. She also gave us the two typical gifts of this day: a book and a rose. She told us the story of George and the dragon and gave us a rose as a memory. 
Thank you so much, Susana. We hope to see you again next year!!!
