AT OUR SCHOOL ... WE BECAME FILM MAKERS!

This year, once again, we participated in the contest "Nós tamén creamos", promoted by the Linguistic department of our region in collaboration with OQO (Galician Publishing House). The contest consists of making 5-minute stop motion films based on a story (chosen among 14 books) and using Galician language. Last year we participated  with 2nd grade students, but, this year, to continue the experience and give more students the opportunity to experience the process of making a film, we participated with students from 1st to 4th grade (6 to 10 years old). This meant lots of children involved, so we decided to make 2 different films. Different stories, different techniques and very different styles. Since any of us is a proffessional and kids ... are kids, there are lots of mistakes; but we sure did our best and had a great time while doing it. If you want to enjoy them too, here are the links (on the photos below)

"RANILDA" (the story of a frog who didn't like being a frog...)

TEACHERS TUESDAY IX - OUR BEATLES PROJECT ACTIVITY BOOK


This school year, in third grade we have been working on the Beatles. Everything started after learning the song "Yellow submarine" for a school show. We then learned "Imagine" for peace day and "All together now" for Valentine's Day. We the discovered their "Octopus' garden" and decided to investigate a little more about them and their music. The are never out of style, are they? In our Art lessons we did several activities related to them and Pop Art and in our English lessons we used this little activity book. It was useful for us, since we used it to review many things we learned during the year (descriptions, routines, ...). You can download and print it clicking on the image below if you want to.

OUR PETS FROM UNDER THE SEA!

1st graders did a great job inventing these fantastic ocean pets with their families. They were given the name of an animal and they had to make it an ocean animal. These are some of their creations. We are preparing something with them. Stay tuned! // Los niños de 1º hicieron un fantástico trabajo inventándose estas mascotas marinas con la ayuda de sus familias.
