ARTS & CRAFT CORNER

THE ARTIST OF THE MOMENT…

In each term of Arts & Crafts, we are going to learn about one famous artist.

This methodology consists on presenting each week one slide from the Power Point. In this slide, we are going to learn one interesting fact of this famous artist that we are learning about. At the same time, each week we are also going to know about one artwork of him/her.

To have the main idea of this methodology, you have to take into account that we start our Arts & Crafts class dedicating the fist five minutes to “The artist of the moment corner”. We present one interesting fact and one artwork in each session and we review the previous ones. We do this routine during six weeks and when we finish, we do some project related to the artist.

We also have one corner in class dedicated to this activity and we put one real photo of the artist of the moment with his/her name. We change the photo, when we start a new term.

In the first term, we have been working about this famous artists:

  • In 4th level Primary: DA VINCI
  • In 5th level Primary: VAN GOGH
  • In 6th level Primary: PICASSO

Here you have the PPT we have been using during the first term:

  • DA VINCI:

-PPT: Da Vinci

  • VAN GOGH:

THEATRE IN CLASS

To introduce the unit we usually use a story. Through this story, we work on the points of grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation … that are necessary in each moment.

But this not only stays here, because we also take advantage of each story worked to make different theaters in class.

In this way, the following objectives are worked:

  1. To raise self-esteem and self-confidence in students.
  2. Create a framework of pleasant conviviality between colleagues and between them and the teacher.
  3. To encourage behavioral habits that promote socialization, tolerance and cooperation among peers.
  4. To make schoolchildren feel the need to submit to a necessary discipline in every group.
  5. To spread intellectual concerns so that students enjoy the study and research.
  6. To work on pronunciation and fluency in a foreign language.
  7. To encourage a taste for the foreign language, English.
  8. And obviously, to having fun and learning in an active way.

This time, we have worked this story in Primary 4:

(this is just an example of our class work)

  • AN ANIMAL STORY.

SPEAKING THROUGH ICT

In the last post of WRITING SKILL, we have talked about the final writing production of the third unit.  Therefore, in this post we are going to work about SPEAKING SKILL.
In lower levels of Primary, we present our works (writings in this case) in class, but in the case of the 6th level of Primary Education, these children should take one more step, and we´ve worked the area of making videos.
Nowadays, the new technologies are too important in their learning process, that´s why they use computers in class instead of books and they should acquire some skills in this field.
At the same time, speaking in English is so important in our society to communicate with people all over the world. These are the main reasons to work this skills in class.
For fulfilling these objectives, each student has prepared one video for making their oral presentations.Here you have some examples (only those who have wanted to participate):
-Unit 3: Working about FILM REVIEW 6th level A…

  Marcos                         Urko                             Adrián

Gerardo                       Lucía                            Adriana 

 Andrea                         Darío                           Ander
