ENCUENTRO CON EL AUTOR

El pasado lunes, vino a visitarnos Joan Manuel Gisbert, el autor del libro "Regalos para el Rey del Bosque". 
El libro nos los leímos el trimestre pasado y estábamos muy nerviosos con su visita y por preguntarle muchas cosas sobre el libro.

Para este encuentro, le preparamos un bonito libro de adivinanzas sobre animales y creamos una capa y una corona para que fuese nuestro ¡REY!




Nos contó que desde que era pequeño, quería ser autor. Iba y volvía del colegio contando historias a sus compañeros. Le hicimos muchísimas preguntas y él, nos hizo adivinanzas y nos dio un montón de regalos!!!!!

¡FUE FANTÁSTICO TENERLE CON NOSOTROS!







DÍA DEL LIBRO

UNA MARIPOSA SOBRE UN SOMBRERO

El pasado 23 de abril celebramos el día del libro.
Ese día, dos alumnos nos contaron el libro que habíamos escogido para este día tan especial. Se trataba de "Una mariposa sobre un sombrero" del autor Bruno Gibert.

Por la tarde, la mamá de un compañero, nos visitó y nos contó de manera muy entretenida, el maravilloso libro de "La gran fábrica de las palabras" de Agnès de Lestrade.



¡Disfrutamos muchísimo creando un mural con nuestro libro y decorándolo!










UNIT 6: MACHINES AND INVENTIONS

UNIT SUMMARY 

In this unit, pupils will review and extend their knowledge of forces and machines. Pupils will develop an understanding of some basic concepts of physics and explore a variety of machines designed to make our lives easier. Pupils begin by refreshing what they know about forces, such as pushes and pulls, and simple and complex machines. 

Pupils will identify common machines that make life easier at school and make a poster of machines found in the home. Pupils are introduced to six simple machines and look at their parts to understand how they work. Pupils can use this information to identify the simple machines that make up complex machines in the world around them. This is followed by an opportunity for pupils to practise putting things together and taking them apart, while exploring the uses of simple tools. A second handson activity challenges pupils to work collaboratively to plan, design and make a machine. 

This activity aims to consolidate much of what the pupils have learned about simple machines and using simple tools while also providing concrete experiences for pupils to develop critical and creative thinking skills. The vocabulary in this unit will provide pupils the opportunity to build on content specific language that will help them understand and explain new concepts. This unit provides pupils with a variety of valuable opportunities to develop scientific skills including observation, planning, problem-solving, inventing and manipulating a variety of objects in their world.

UNIT 6 : STUDYING THE PAST


UNIT SUMMARY

 In this unit pupils will review and extend their understanding of the past by focusing on historical sources from the different periods of history. With the unit opener and story, pupils are introduced to the study of archaeology. They learn how archaeologists discover objects called artefacts that people made and used in the past.

 They then focus on the tools that archaeologists use and the process of documenting discoveries at an excavation site by completing a grid. The main unit begins by presenting various artefacts and historical sites found around Spain from the fi ve different periods of history. Pupils will use these physical sources of history to understand where, when and how people lived in the past. 

This is followed by a double page spread that focuses on how art and music can teach us about the past. Pupils will place important artworks in chronological order to help them learn about important people, places and events in history. The last two content pages deal with two distinct, but related topics: the fi rst provides pupils with examples of written historical sources; the second discusses various ways we can learn about history from other people.

 The content-specifi c vocabulary in this unit encourages pupils to develop higher-level language skills and assists them as they become more mature language-users. Through an enquiry-based process, pupils will refl ect on historical sources to gain an appreciation of their historical and cultural heritage.
