DRAMA – The lion and the mouse

Now, let´s act it out!

The lion and the mouse is an Aesop Fable . Fables teach a lesson or moral. This story teaches how we can help each other no matter how we are.
We have to work hard learning the dialogues and decorating the stage. By the end of the school year we will perform the play in our class and we will record a short video to show you all.

ART – Patchwork

Patchwork fun!
Do you know what a quilt is? and… What does patchwork mean?
Well, to answer these questions I invited Julia Baigorri to our class. Julia is a teacher of english, a poet and she loves patchwork. She is really a wonderful woman!
She told the children the origins of patchwork. Its way from the Near East to Europe and then to America. The lifestyle of the pioneers who settled in the west and their lives in the new frontier. They reviwed and learn words from many topics. They spent a happy time with her. The idea now is to sew a patchwork heart to present on Mother´s Day. The heart design has been made by Mª Jesús a patchwork artist and teacher from Logroño.
Many thanks to you both!!

ART – Pottery

Yesterday we spent a wonderful afternoon with Carmen.
Carmen is a potter from Logroño. She is very kind and she came to teach us some pottery techniques. Everybody was delighted and we learnt a lot.
She had another surprise for us. She has just arrived from a trip to India, so she showed us some coins and some pottery.
Thank you very much Carmen. You are really a good teacher!
