Yes! School is over and we all are on holidays! At last! After a long and cold winter, here comes the sun, the marks and our reward: 2 long months of joy and beach! We all deserve the holidays! Enjoy yourselves!
And now it´s time to learn about Russia! Thanks to our Russian visitor, Vera Galushchenko, we learnt many new things about this large country. She brought some matryoshkas, also called nesting dolls, to the classroom and we enjoyed watching her putting ones inside the others. Amazing! And as she is an English teacher, she also gave us some good advices to improve our English during the summer holidays. Thank you very much, Vera!
The end of school is apporaching and that´s why we can do lots of exciting activities, like the one we celebrated today: T-SHIRT DAY. It was amazing to see you with your lovely English t-shirts writing your sentences and participating in the contest! And there were wonderful awards for the winners! Thanks a lot for your interest!
How funny! We went on a scavenger hunt last week and we had a great time! In groups of four, we first had to look for a long list of things around our playground: stones, sticks, wildflowers, barks, feathers, seeds, ... Lots of spring stuff! Later, when our teacher checked that everything was found, she gave us a treasure map and we went on a treasure hunt. First we had to answer three questions located in three different places and then we went to find the treasure. Each team found a "cache" or treasure: a plastic box with a notebook and some little gifts. We wrote the date, the name of our group and a sentence in the notepad and then we took a present, but we left another one in exchange. It was very exciting! We want to repeat it again!
Geaocaching is a treasure hunt game using high-tech: a GPS device. You have to go to this web page: www.geocaching.com and take the coordenades to find a "cache" or treasure. After introducing them in your GPS device, you gcan o to look for it: it´s normally a plastic box that contains a notebook and some small gifts. You can take one present but leaving another one in exchange. And very important: nobody can see you! There are many caches hidden all over the world. In fact, you can find several caches here in our town. Why don´t you go geocaching next weekend? It´s great fun! Good luck!
