[Fotos] The Fun Day at School
Today our senior students went to the beach, so the little ones enjoyed the day at school! In the morning children created artistic and crazy stories. They also made colourful posters of 5 emotions (joy, anger, fear, sadness and disgust). Later on, we filmed short videos in media room. Each child was able to participate in performing and recording the videos.
After lunch, we had afternoon activities in which children played an interesting and really active game called ‘The Mad Chief’. The purpose of this game was to collect all the ingredients for typical English breakfast, while 3 chiefs (teachers) were interrupting the game and crossing off the special list the ingredients. Children also had a Scavenger Hunt in the school in which they had to complete 10 tasks in a creative way to earn points for their Houses (England, Ireland, Scotland). After that, the children played 3 different games and learned new words about summer and summer activities. While one group was learning songs about summer, the second was playing a game called ‘Sleepy Dwor’ and the third group had blind dates in which they had to tell about their favourite summer activities.
While our little ones went to the beach our senior students were having fun in English lessons and in the special afternoon activities. In the morning, the children were rehearsing for the comedy film with our media teacher, Erin. After a while our wonderful teacher from Ireland, Kirsty, taught us how to play Irish football – Gaelic football. The children had a lot of fun playing this game and have learned specific words related to sports and Ireland.
After lunch we had special activities in which all three houses (England, Scotland and Ireland) had to show who are the best house by competing in the Scavenger hunt. The students had to complete various tasks in and out of the school. Some of the tasks within the school included children having to come up with a tongue twister, taking a photograph with something blue and soft, build a giant animal using their bodies and imagination and other different tasks. In the city center of Benissa students had to overcome even more challenges like to teach a waitress/waiter a new English phrase, to sing a “Baby Shark” song near the fountain, to take a picture pretending that they are tourists and so on. All teams had a great time completing all the tasks.
