We now have only 2 weeks left until the kids finish for summer.
We are not going to finish the books. I prefer to go more slowly and be sure that you understand each unit and are able to use the language correctly.
My intention is to complete SEVEN UNITS of work.
This year we have completed the following units:
6th grade : Units 1,2,*4,5,6 and spent three weeks preparing for the first official exams ever in English.
5th grade : Units 1,2,*4,5,6 and 7
4th grade: Units 1,2,3,4,5 and 6.
3rd grade: Units 1,2,3,4,5 and 6
(*We didn't do unit 3 because it is about recycling in both 5th and 6th grades, which the kids find a bit boring)
At the moment we are doing:
6th grade: Unit 7 ( will and won't and cities in the future)
5th grade: unit 8 ( could/couldn't , can/ can't and computers)
4th grade: Unit 7 ( jobs, present simple, printing press)
3rd grade: unit 8** (holidays, can/ can't review, do you like?)
**We didn't do unit 7 about fairy tales (cuentos de hadas) because I prefer to do a unit with more useful vocabulary)
I hope to do the final unit tests Thursday16th or Friday 17th June.
At the moment I have only prepared the test sheets for 5th grade.
We have Easter hat competitions. We call the hats BONNETS!
The shops have shop Easter window competitions.
In my town, we have a traditional annual football match on GOOD FRIDAY ( viernes santo)
called " The Uppies and the Downies". The two teams of 1000 players come from the high part (uppies) and the low part (downies) of Workington. This football match resembles the first game of football ever played.
Remember football was invented in England!!!! :)
