Alcalá de Henares Course

Back from three intense days in which I have learned a lot about how to teach Science within the integrated curriculum.
 I am really proud to take part in this amazing project. Thank you to Louise for such a fantastic course and thank you to so many teachers from all over Spain that I have met and shared experiences with.
  I can say that this project counts with the best possible teachers. It is really motivating finding nowadays so many enthusiastic teachers who hardly believe that this British Council and MEC collaboration assures the best bilingual education for our pupils and who day by day fight for giving children the best .
I am looking forwards to coming back next Monday and putting into practice everything I have learned!
Thank you, of course, to children, parents and colleagues for letting me go and for the part you have in me feeling today a very happy and lucky man.



De vuelta después de tres intensos días en los que he aprendido muchísimo sobre como enseñar Ciencias dentro del currículo integrado.
Me siento realmente orgulloso de formar parte de este fascinante proyecto. Gracias a Louise por un curso tan fantástico y gracias a tantos maestros repartidos por España que he conocido estos días y con los que he compartido experiencias.
Me atrevo a decir que este proyecto cuenta con los mejores profesores posibles. Es esperanzador encontrarse en estos tiempos con tantos profesores ilusionados que creen profundamente que el convenio Mec-British Council garantiza la mejor educación bilingüe para nuestros alumnos y que luchan a diario por ofrecer a los niños todo lo mejor.
Estoy deseando volver el lunes y poner en práctica todo lo que he aprendido.
Gracias, como no, a mis alumnos a sus padres y a mis compañeros por permitirme marchar y por la parte que os toca en que hoy me sienta un hombre feliz y afortunado.

Some advices to take care of your organs.


 We made a list of good advices to take care of  the different organs and senses. In order to do this:
1. We individually put together a  sentence split into different parts.
2. We copied that sentence in a piece of paper.
3. There were five tables, one for each sense, so we moved with our sense to the right  table.
4. Then, we glued together  all the sentences for the same sense in the same sheet of paper.
5. Finally we prepared a poster for all the five senses.
















Taste.



 We learned about taste buds and we tasted some aliments.
-Sweet: We tasted a piece of marzipan.
-Salty: We tasted a cracker.
-Bitter: We tasted dark chocolate and Samuel loved it!
-Sour: Some children tasted some lemmon drops and it was not so good.

Then we selected some aliments and we classified them in different groups:

SMELL.

Smell is a very important sense. It is even more important for many animals.
Look how important smell was for Ferdinand the bull, who preferred smelling flowers than fighting...I prefer doing that too!


Hearing

Here you have some links and photos about hearing. Enjoy!

How the ear works.


We made a model ear with plasticine.



I hope you review the parts of the ear and how it works in order to avoid surprises...

Repaso números de tres cifras.

Si quieres repasar los numeros de tres cifras, te he preparado estos diez ejercicios. Como ves son muy fáciles. Si te apetece hacerlos y que te los corrija, puedes imprimirlos  y dármelos en clase, o mandármelos por e-mail.
Números de tres cifras.





Números de cuatro y cinco cifras.

Aquí va un enlace para practicar los números de cuatro y cinco cifras. No olvidéis poner el punto después se las unidades de millar.

Describir personas.

Aquí os dejo algunos enlaces que os pueden resultar útiles para describir personas.
Recordad que primero debemos referirnos a cómo es una persona físicamente y cómo va vestida y después hablaremos de su carácter.
Las palabras que utilizamos para referirnos a las personas: alta, baja, simpática, dormilona...se llaman adjetivos, aunque eso lo aprenderemos después.

Práctica de descripción.

Descripción de Telma y Bruno.

Adjetivos

Aquí va el principio de un libro muy bonito llamado  "Platero y yo" escrito por un poeta llamado Juan Ramón Jiménez.,  habla de la relación entre un niño y un burro. Es un cuento precioso que yo leí cuando tenía vuestra edad por primera vez y que os animo a leer.
Aunque Platero es un burro, esta es una descripción suya. Además de  personas, también podemos describir a animales.

Platero y yo

Cuentacuentos.

Después de leer el libro " Las locas aventuras de un caballero y su juglar", el viernes, dos actores vinieron al cole a representarlo. ¡ Eran divertidísimos!
Ellos solos representaron un montón de papeles y nos hicieron reir de buena gana.

Peter`s Project Work: Our Body.

As I said, during this week, Peter, our British Council Counsellor will introduce a new project about the body
We will focus now on this proyect and we will come back to our project work about the 5 senses when we finish with this one.
To introduce it, Peter has told us a story called "From Head to Toe" and we are making a minibook . He will also teach about bones and muscles. Peter and me are working together with this project and we hope you take a profit from it!

 I post some photos  which will help us.









PARTS OF THE EYE

These are some important links about  the eye and its functions. Although you have a lot of information here, you have to focus on five parts mainly:
Iris, pupil, eye ball, lens and retina. As you know, these parts are for vision.
There are other parts for protection, such as eyelids, eyelashes and eyebrow.
 Practise!



The 5 Senses. Sight.

With the sense of sight we interrupt this project work for a couple of weeks as a new project will be introduced by Peter.

We have seen a video about how difficult life can be for a blind person and how when we have one sense damaged, we use the other four senses more accurately.


Then we have learned that blind people can read. They use braille system to do it.

Finally, we have made a poster showing the parts of the eye and its functions in braille system.
