English lessons at Carmen Conde

Investigating Teddies
Hi everyone! Bunnet has also been investigating about how English is taught at Carmen Conde School. The first thing he discovered is that our students of 1st year are following a bilingual syllabus. This means they learn some subjects (Science, Art and crafts, English and Physical Education) in English; to be more precise they have eleven hours of lessons in English every week. We are all very enthusiastic about this project!
The rest of the courses, from 2nd to 6th year, aren’t in the bilingual project and, consequently, have less hours of English exposure a week, three lessons. However we try to make the most of it!
Bunnet has met the English teachers in our school and he has visited our English Department where you can find lots of resources (books, tales, magazines, videos, dvds, posters, games, etc) including an interactive board.
Teddy also entered some classes in which he found out that our students enjoy English lessons a lot. We sing songs and chants, play games and say riddles and tongue twisters. We also read and tell stories, watch dvds and work with computers. We love to speak English and to learn about English traditions and way of life. That’s why we investigate different aspects of anglo-saxon culture. For example, in the third cycle we have recently made a mural about unique buildings in the United Kingdom such as the Big Ben. We have also investigated about healthy food, important cities and castles, among other things. We use all the murals to decorate the classrooms and the walls in the corridors so that everybody can see our pupils’ great work.
Besides, next month we will be celebrating the English Week which will be focused on London city. We are already looking forward to it!
Here you have some photos of Bunnet around our school.

Music lessons

Hello again,

Bunnet has enjoyed music classes with us. In our music lessons we do lots of things with our music teacher, Rodrigo. We learn musical language (quaver, semiquaver, crotcher,...) and we also study the instruments and their families, as well as the different sections in an orchestra: the brass section, the percussion section, the wind sectino and the string section.

On the other hand, nowadays we are learning how to play the recorder and we practice and play popular and modern songs. Besides, in special occasions (carnival, peace day,...), we prepare short dances and choreographies, and we sing songs for the rest of the students in the school.

We have an interactive white board in the music room which makes our lessons much more interesting and fun.

Here you have some pictures. Enjoy them!
