At Viaro School we focus on fun ways to practice English. Children will be more motivated to use the language when an activity is interesting and meaningful to them, such as games, songs, storytelling, craft making, drama and much more.
One of the most eagerly awaited activities in the school is The English Week. This year the thematic was Viaro´s Forest. With the collaboration of all the teachers and students we managed to create a spectacular forest at the entrance of the school where you can see the arts and crafts made by the students.
The second cycle students took part in a vocabulary competition where they did a wonderful job recognizing and naming all the vocabulary words that we have worked on during the first and second term.
English week: welcome to Viaro’s Forest
Mr Gatenby delighted us with a concert with typical English songs and nursery rhymes creating an ideal musical atmosphere for the children to enjoy and dance to.
We invited the Primary pupils to tell stories to the little ones. They really did a great job as the children were very attentive and happy listening to the wonderful stories.
The families organized themselves to go and tell a story to their children’s class. It was an amazing experience full of emotions and some of them used the puppets as an excellent storytelling tool. Thank you very much for your invaluable collaboration.
And finally, we had the opportunity to have a puppet show by IPA productions delighting us with a classic story such as Little Red Riding Hood.
Little Red Riding Hood walks through the forest towards her grandmother’s house. On the way she meets all kinds of funny animals: a hedgehog, a squirrel, sleeping rabbits, a fox, a crow and even a dancing teddy bear!
Our English Week is an open window to new activities and experiences with the English Language, a great way to practice new expressions and acquire new vocabulary. We really had so much Fun!!!
