Desde el Modern Languages Club queremos darles la bienvenida al nuevo curso escolar 2013-2014.
Aprovechamos para comentarles que contamos con más profesores nativos para los idiomas: francés e inglés.
La próxima semana recibirán la circular con la oferta en idiomas para las tres etapas y para los idiomas: inglés, francés y alemán.
Deseamos seguir creciendo y aprendiendo con todos vosotros: padres y alumnos/as.
This week, during the M.L.C. classes we have been exploring, playing and enjoying sports and games.
We discussed our favourite sport and reached the conclusion that most of
us prefer football over any other sport. Although some of the girls said they
would rather do ice-skating!
To reinforce the vocabulary related to sport and games, we played word games
such as “memory”, guessing games. what’s missing etc.
We went outside to the playground in order to put into practise some outdoor
games. We enjoyed a game of bowling, the skittles were made from empty
cardboard tubes which were painted bright and attractive colours, we used
a medium-sized soft ball to make it easier for everyone to score.
We jumped and hopped in a game of hop-scotch, we put pictures of sports
in each square, and the children had to identify the sport.
At Alameda de Osuna School we support sports and practicing exercise. We encourage you to practice sports with your kids!
Here are some benefits of sports for children:
•It teaches you how to follow rules.
•It helps you to overcome shyness.
•It produces a general increase of the coordinated movements.
•It promotes the growth of bones and muscles.
•It helps you to create habits.
•It develops interest for motion and exercise.
•It promotes hygiene and health
•It teaches you to have certain responsibilities
Have fun watching and dancing this song!

Learning to play a sport is an excellent activity for kids, not only is it physically great exercise, but kids also develop key social skills through the playing of sports. For example they learn how to follow rules, how to work as a team and that the most important thing is neither winning, nor losing, but taking part! And, let’s not forget that sports are fun!
As we introduced the names and equipment of the most common sports in English last week, this week we’re playing these sports as a fun and energetic way to review vocabulary.
We’ve played “category tennis,” where the kids are given a category ( for example: fruit, parts of the house, or clothing ) and they have to say a word from the category while they pass the ball. If the kid takes too long to think of a word, the other team wins a point! Kids also loved playing “memory football” where they pass the ball to members of their team while remembering a chain of phrases. If the last kid in the team can remember all the sentences his or her teammates have said, (S)he gets to take a shot at the goal.
We even have been taking advantage of the good weather and have taken the MLC outside the classroom to play basketball in the red playground, as well as traditional playground games such as Three Legged Race and Wheelbarrow Race. One thing is for sure, the kids of the MLC will definitely be ready for Sports Day next Sunday!
Le printemps est enfin arrivé et l´aventure continue avec la disparition d´une des fleurs magiques de Maya l´abeille et voilà nos trois compères qui se mettent à sa recherche.
L´équipe MLC de français s´amuse comme des petits fous en cherchant la fleur magique “c´est chaud ou c´est froid” et en apprenant la chanson “ Promenons-nous dans les bois” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjYuK9cB8X8 tout en jouant à tour de role, les yeux bandés le loup. Nous avons aussi visité la nouvelle salle de classe MLC de français situé au dernier étage du bâtiment de primaire où nous avons fait des dessins pour pouvoir la décorer.
During the MLC classes it’s interesting to see how the children have fun and, for that, we are working on sports during the next three weeks: football, basketball, tennis…
Today I’d like to show you all how to make a target game that they can use to practise their basketball skills. Children will be kept busy all day, because the first step is to build the game; the 3 and 4 year olds will need some help but I am pretty sure that the 5 year olds can decorate it by themselves.
So… let’s make our Target Game!

Ayer hemos inaugurado el Modern Languages Club. Nuestro equipo directivo y los alumnos/as de Educación Primaria y Educación Secundaria acudieron a la celebración.
El principal objetivo del club de idiomas es crear un espacio multilingüe dentro del colegio, en el que los alumnos/as podrán utilizar los idiomas de forma natural, leer libros, ver la televisión en distintos idiomas, utilizar recursos de manera gratuita, etc.
Les informaremos sobre todas las novedades de nuestro club a través del blog.
A continuación les presentamos a nuestro equipo directivo:

In our M.L.C. classes we are having a lot of fun exploring traditional stories.
One of them is “Goldilocks and the three bears”
First we read the story and the children had a chance to choose a mask of
Goldilocks or Mummy bear, Daddy bear or even baby bear!!
So after choosing their favourite character they were able to ‘act out’ the story.
One of the children volunteered to help the teacher with the narration.
The use of storytelling and role play helps the children to expand their
vocabulary and it also gives them the opportunity to feel comfortable and
confident in using the language in a relaxed and fun way!!
Have you heard the musical version of “The Sleeping Beauty”?
It’s really cute, it’s called ” There was a princess long ago”.
We have been singing the song and acting it out during class,
so why don’t you look it up and maybe share a few musical minutes
with your child?
