En mi pueblo… (results)

As promised, here are some of the trioramas made by Y6 at WCPS on the subject of Mi pueblo. The pupils were very excited about making them and whilst one class did a better job than the other, there were some excellent examples created. Each classroom has a (static) Spanish display and I’ve added some of […]

Don’t stop movin

Not a post about S Club 7 (athough I will say that my boys are big fans of Hannah who’s in Primeval now!) but about something that was reinforced in my mind last night. The Assistant Head at school had been asked to run part of the PDM on EAL (English as an additional language) […]

Take Ten en español :o)

Great excitement last week when a parcel arrived from Devon, with a courtesy slip from Devon Education Services. Our copy of TAKE TEN EN ESPAÑOL has arrived! As you may recall, I was asked to help out along with some of the pupils at Whitehouse Common Primary School where I teach. The kids have been […]

Dos Vokis más.

Not the bumper crop we had hoped to post but we did manage to finish three despite crashing laptops, intermittent Internet connection and microphones that wouldn’t work!
