Films, films and more films

We've been working very hard to finish our films. We hope you enjoy them!










Jumping Songs

This week the 3rd and 4th graders have been learning some new jump rope songs. We got the idea from Hawes Community Primary School in England and decided to try it ourselves. The 4th graders learned the song Miss Mary Mack and the 3rd graders learned the poem The Elephant Goes Like This. Both classes had a lot of fun jumping rope while singing.

American Pancakes

Today we saw a cooking demonstration. Sarah, the American Assistant showed us how to prepare her favourite breakfast: American Pancakes with peanut butter and chocolate cream.

She prepared pancakes for all of us and we got to taste them. They were delicious, especially with chocolate cream on top! We also tasted the peanut butter but it's not our favourite.

If you want to try it at home, here's the recipe:


150 grams flour
25 grams sugar
12 grams butter, melted
175 millileters milk
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 pinches of salt
1 egg

Pour all of the ingredients into a large bowl and mix them together using a hand mixer or wisk. Once the pancake mixture is nice and creamy (without any lumps)use the ladle to pour it into the shape of a circle onto a heated grill or pan on the stove. Be sure to add a bit of oil to the grill/pan so the pancakes won't stick. When bubbles start to form on the top of the pancakes, flip them to the other side. Allow a few more minutes to cook then transfer to a plate. The only thing left to do is choose a topping and enjoy!

Run Like The Wind!

Last Friday, our school hosted a benefit race. All of the students as well as some parents and teachers had a great time running in it. The participants were sponsered by people in the community and according to how many laps they ran, they raised different amounts of money. The race was a huge success and we raised over 2,000 euros. After the race, a couple of clowns performed for us and the money we raised will go to help support their group of clowns. (Xarop Clown - Hospital clowns).

Maths Solving: At the zoo

As we are followers of the Maths Solving of Mr Thurlow in Burnham School we decided to prepare our own for the 3rd graders. First we decided a topic, then we prepared the problems in pairs and then we made the presentation.

Can you write a comment with the answers? Good luck!

Science in English: Colonization

This term we've been working on the British Colonization of North America.
We've learnt lots of things. We started with the Explorers (Sir Humphrey Gilbert and Sir Walter Raleigh). They landed on the East Coast: Newfoundland (Canada) and Roanoke Island (The Lost Colony) in what is now North Carolina.
We learnt about Jamestown, the settlers and the real Pocahontas and also about the Pilgrims and the Crossing of the Mayflower.
We learnt a lot about the American and European History but it was a hard unit especially because there was a lot of information and it was in ENGLISH!
It was difficult to remember the names, the dates and the important facts. We had to study a lot for the final test.
We liked the games our teachers prepared to revise the content. They were really useful and very cool!

Barbie Conquers The World

This term, the 6th graders have been working on a Barbie project with the American Language and Cultural Assistant. For the final part of it, the 5th & 6th graders learned a classic pop song from the 90's, ''Barbie Girl'' by Aqua. The students had a fantastic time listening to the song, watching the music video and of course, singing.

We love making films!

In English class, we studied the poem If I could build a town and we decided to make a film. To start we took pictures of our classmates and we recorded the poem with AUDACITY (free software) We looked for pictures of different places related to the poem on the internet. Then we used GIMP (free software) to cut and paste our photos and Windows Movie Maker to make the film. Then we uploaded it to Youtube and here you are, the first three finished films. Congratulations Judith, Mireia and Laura!
