STORYJUMPER

To conclude the course, it is important to do a brief review of the contents acquired throughout the year.

Providing them a glossary of grammar, expressions, vocabulary… and giving them the opportunity to create fun audiobooks to present later to their classmates is a very fun way to carry out this tasks.

That´s why I bring you the STORYJUMPER tool: easy to use, intuitive and very playful.

They love it!

Here I share a small tutorials about how to use it:

 

You can also create a group class (providing them a code) and import the audiobooks to Google Classroom classes. What I like the most is that while they are working, you can correct their stories at the same time…

OVERSIZE HEAD FIGURES

The Primary 6 students have done oversize head figures for the festivities of our school: Santa Joaquina.

They have prepared different kind of designs for the 22nd of May in the Arts & Crafts subject and due to these circumstances they are going to use them next year to scare the little children of our school. It will be very funny!

We encourage you to have a look at their designs…

They are cool, aren´ t they?

PRIMARY 6 ENGLISH ASSISTANT: MARCELA

Due to this emergency situation, last week the Primary 6 students had to say goodbye to our English assistant; Marcela.

She came from Cincinnati, Ohio (USA) to Bilbao to continue studying her university degree in Business and once a week she visited us to practice our oral skills with her.

She studies at Xavier University (Ohio) in his home country.

She started working with us in February and she was going to stay with us, initially, until May, but due to the current situation regarding the Covid-19 she had to urgently leave for the United States.

We were very sorry about that, since we learned a lot with her and she prepared very fun sessions for us.

Hopefully someday you can visit us again, Marcela!

Thank you very much for everything.

It was a nice pleasure to meet you.

We will miss you…

Our best wishes for you 🙂
