INTRODUCING NEW LOGO & TRAILER of the PROJECT “The English Classroom Band”

¡Hoy estamos de estreno!

A algunos os sonará de ver por el blog un logo redondo hecho de guitarras con el nombre del proyecto que llevamos a cabo los de , llamado “The English Classroom Band”, en el que, como premio de ClassDojo por hacerlo bien en las clases y aprender mucho, tocamos y cantamos cada trimestre algunas canciones en inglés. Pues bien, como llevamos ya unas cuantas y esto va cogiendo solera ya desde el año pasado, creé hace poco este logo para el proyecto que os presento aquí a través de este video “INTRO”:

Aquí está el trailer de presentación de la lista “The English Classroom Band” de mi canal de youtube donde están todas las canciones que hacemos los de 6º.

 

I hope you like them! 😉

BOOK DAY: Oscar Wilde and “The Canterville Ghost”

As you all know, we always celebrate the book day on 23rd April. That date commemorates the death of the  two world´s most famous writers: Miguel de Cervantes and William Shakespeare. Both of them died on the 23rd April 1616 (well, as a matter of fact, Cervantes really died on the 22nd April, but he was buried the 23rd).

As this year we are going to watch a play (“HOTEL CANTERVILLE”)  based on a popular novella by Oscar Wilde, “The Canterville Ghost”, we are going to deal with this author and that novel to commemorate the Book Day and our Book Week at school.

Click on the image below to watch a video telling the story of “The Canterville Ghost”:
