Happy Thanksgiving!!


                                  Thanksgiving Day 2015 WhatsApp



Thansgiving Day is an annual national holiday in the United States and Canada celebrating the harvest and other blessings of the past year. 
In the US Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November while in Canada nearly one month and a half earlier (second Monday of October). 

Thanksgiving has deep roots in religious tradition, but nowadays it is primarily celebrated as a secular holiday.
Thanksgiving tradition began in early XVII century, but date and popularity varied between states. First nation-wide Thanksgiving was proclaimed on November 26th, 1789 by George Washington. 

The contemporary date of fourth Thursday of November was set in 1941 by federal legislation.

 EVERY MOVE I MAKE
                                
na-- na-- na na na na na

(3X)

Every move I make 

I make in You
You make me move, Jesus
Every breath I take
I breathe in You

Every step I take 

I take in You
You are my way, Jesus
Every breath I take
I breathe in You


Waves of mercy

Waves of grace
Everywhere I look
I see Your face
Your love has captured me
Oh my God, this love
How can it be

Peace work in Primary 2nd

As poetry is a good way of learning languages, our pupils in Primary 2nd learnt a poem talking about Peace, differences and respect.


Here you can see some of them.















Listen to them singing I've got Peace in my fingers.




And finally, listen to their answers about the question: What does Peace mean for you ?

Monuments

During the week after Christmas, the three courses of 3 ESO have been preparing a work in groups that we would like to share with everyone.

They had to find information about different monuments located either in England or the US and explain part of the history and characteristics of the landmarks chosen to the rest of the class.

Some of them used cardboards with pictures, while others preferred to use their oral skills to attract the attention of their classmates.

This fun activity helped them strengthen their relationships as they formed part of a team, and it was a good way to introduce a little bit of cultural aspects combined with English grammar and oral speaking capacities, so they could improve their fluency.


Here are some pictures!
