HAPPY WORLD POETRY DAY!

poetryday_animated

March 21 is World Poetry Day, a day to support poetry and poets around the world. Do you know why? It’s really interesting, don’t miss it!

poetry-300x156

“World Poetry Day celebrates one of humanity’s most treasured forms of cultural and linguistic expression and identity. Practiced throughout history – in every culture and on every continent – poetry speaks to our common humanity and our shared values, transforming the simplest of poems into a powerful catalyst for dialogue and peace.

 word-poetry-day

UNESCO first adopted 21 March as World Poetry Day during its 30th General Conference in Paris in 1999, with the aim of supporting linguistic diversity through poetic expression and increasing the opportunity for endangered languages to be heard.

World Poetry Day is the occasion to honour poets, revive oral traditions of poetry recitals, promote the reading, writing and teaching of poetry, foster the convergence between poetry and other arts such as theatre, dance, music and painting, and raise the visibility of poetry in the media.  As poetry continues to bring people together across continents, all are invited to join in.” (http://www.unesco.org/new/en/poetry-day)

What are some of your favourite poems? Who are your favourite poets? Poems touch our heart, so celebrate this day every single day, because it is never too late to read a poem.

Can you guess our topic for this new entry?

YES!   IRREGULAR VERBS…..!

How do you feel about irregular verbs?

Come on. It’s not that bad!

 

OK, OK!  DON’T PANIC!  

It’s not that terrible.  We are going to help you with it.

First of all CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDE!

Here are some ideas to help you learn them more easily.

     

You can find a lot of games and activities, for example, the game you find in The Big Challenge:

http://verbs.thebigchallenge.com/  

There are many interesting pages to practise, like:

So, don’t be afraid and just…

 

 

To finish we want to include here the lists of irregular verbs we use in class, in case you need a copy for the next test…  

You can start practising with the list for next year!




KEEP WORKING AT IT!

It’s a CHALLENGE!

This month we want to talk about READING.

An important activity to learn anything, to learn any language, and therefore, to learn English is READING!

 

In order to help you READ more, this year the school is buying magazines, so you can borrow graded issues and learn while you enjoy READING them.

Some students are writing reviews of the magazines they READ. These 1st ESO students want to share their work so you have some examples of excellent commentaries.

We hope you find them helpful.

Go ahead and READ a lot!

                        

COOKING IS GREAT!!

The students of 1ºFPB want to welcome you to show their skills in cooking, they are fantastic and very professional cooks. Let’s see what they cooked with love and care.

Can you guess?

As you can see, the students prepared delicious cookies as well as succulent pasta. YUMMY!! I was really impressed by their outstanding work. CONGRATULATIONS, Sara, Adrián, Enrique, David, Mario, Erik, Tony, Lucas, José Carlos and Miguel. Keep on working like this.

2005 Germany, 2007 Spain, 2012 Austria, 2013 Sweden, 2016 Poland and Holland.  More tan 600.000 high school students participate each year.

Many of you participated last year and the school results were really good.

We hope this year even more people join so you learn and enjoy it a lot!

Remember that everyone is a winner in this contest.  You all get a Diploma, a poster, and other gifts.

It is important to train for it. We sometimes practice in class, but you can do it at home too,

just type THE BIG CHALLENGE and play any of the games as many times as you wish.

This year you have got three games.  Try them all!
