¡Me gusta el Slime!

4cc me gustaAs Year 4 had their Spanish lesson on Valentines Day this week, they did something a little different. Knowing how much the children love using the bilingual dictionaries, Señora Stevens gave them an opportunity to do some revision and also expand their vocabulary.

Firstly they reviewed how to say 'I like' and 'I love' in Spanish - me gusta and me encanta - and then how to make that negative and say 'I don't like' - no me gusta. Some children even remembered that if you say that you like a plural noun, it becomes me gustan or me encantan. 
Then they recalled as many words as they could from Year 3 to make up some I like sentences including Me gusta el chocolate and Me gustan los plátanos.
Finally, they reminded each other how to use a bilingual dictionary, which half they needed to use to find Spanish words, and how to 'read' the dictionary and choose the correct word. 

Their task was to fill in their heart with things that they like in Spanish. They produced some lovely work, and the six best from each class are shown here. A very successful lesson for all, including Señora Stevens who learned that the word for slime (as in the sparkly play slime!) in Spanish is... el Slime!

Want to learn A million dreams in Makaton?

sing

The February song for the Hands of the World project is, like This is Me, from The Greatest Showman. A slightly slower but equally powerful song, Whitehouse Common have been assigned one line to learn - A million dreams are keeping me awake - but lots of children have expressed an interest in learning the whole song. So, with half term ahead of us, here is the song signed in Makaton so that anyone who wants to can have a go. After the holidays, anyone who has learned it can meet Sra Stevens to sign it together. 

 

Happy singing and signing!

Hands of the World eTwinning project - Weekly Makaton Challenges Spring1

The Hands of the World (HOTW) project is really taking root at Whitehouse Common.  5MM have been following on from learning This is Me  to mastering a new song from The Greatest Showman in Makaton (more of that in the next post), but the fun has not been restricted to one class. Year 4 have been leading the way with the weekly Makaton challenge, and you can see the results of the first three weeks below. And the rest of KS2 have been joining in; during assembly last week, everyone learned to sign Good afternoon, teacher and ask and answer How are you?

It's been lovely to see children greeting one another in Makaton, and also coming into school having learned new signs to share, or with stories of parents and relatives who use or know some Makaton. 

This week, the challenge is to say Good night, friend. As we're on holiday, we'll have to catch up next week.

Year 2 speak to Antartica Scientist

 

class watching

Year 2 were very lucky to be able to Skype call Dr Jenny Hillman from the University of Helsinki about her recent trip to Antartica. The children have been learning lots about the North and South poles and in particular what life is like in Antartica. Dr Hillman was able to talk to the children about what life is like in Antartica and spoke about how her and her team dove under the ice to see the effects of global warming on animals on the sea floor. The children were fascinated to find out about the special dive suits that she needed to wear to keep warm in the -2 waters and how sometimes her hands would freeze and take 2 hours to thaw out after a dive! They also found out that whilst Dr Hillman was in Antartica there was no darkness - they found this very exciting, they thought this meant no bedtime!
