CHILDREN FIGHT FOR A BETTER WORLD





Who says that you cannot play your part to make A BETTER VALUABLE WORLD? For these two weeks in your English lessons you have learnt a lot about the concept of peace and great people who fought for it .Caring about our planet is also a question of peace and good actions.

Children have also a lot to say and do. This is an example of a young fighter in its defence :" You adults, you must change your ways...I am here to fight for my future..."

I know that you all are responsible for the planet and are sensitive people. I have learnt that from your messages of peace and your drawings.

Last week we worked on the topic of peace. Here you are the Knotted Gun at the Grounds of the United Nations in New York. Did you enjoy the game where you had to find the missing words (peacemaking terms) within a dove? I hope so. You have learnt new words to speak and write "peacefully".
What about the symbols and messages of peace in each group? Did you get an original one that can be easily associated with PEACE? Next tuesday, we will see. Remember that we have to keep them safe as a treasure in our "sea chest". You are pirates of peace now!!
In the meantime, I would like you to know more about the culture of peace as defined by UNESCO. "Peace can be at hand ;it is in our hands" Koïchiro Matsuura

Treasure Island

Soy Carmen, sí la profe de inglés aunque ahora escriba en nuestra lengua nativa por un momento. Sólo quiero presentaros este enlace para que sepáis algo más sobre los orígenes de la piratería y su dimensión literaria. En la literatura española hay muchos ejemplos donde los bucaneros o filibusteros eran protagonistas, José de Espronceda hizo famoso un cantar que todo/as hemos oído alguna vez: La Canción del pirata.

" Que es mi barco mi tesoro,
que es mi Dios la libertad;
mi ley la fuerza y el viento,
mi única patria la mar".
Now you are reading the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson, Treasure Island . I hope you enjoy learning new words related to the pirate world here. Also you could make this quiz to check how much you know about the life of pirates, how they behaved and where they mainly sailed.
Then, you can go on practising vocabulary by listening to a song while reading the lyrics. Try the puzzle first and then sing along.
If you have finished, go to the readers site in our wikispace. Have fun with the video and listen to the story of a hidden treasure .
