Head, shoulders, knees and toes!

Last week the 3rd graders visited the brand new Kostis Palamas room and had fun learning the body parts in English! First, we got acquainted with some basic body parts (mouth, fingers, elbows etc.) with the help of Goofy!


Next, to consolidate what we had learnt we played a circle game. Students started drawing on their notebooks a body part according to the instructions given(e.g. Please, draw two big heads). At the sound of 'stop' they handed their notebook to the person on their right and continued drawing on someone else's noebook until they were asked to stop and so forth. This way, all students' notebooks were rotated and got filled with strange, funny creatures!

Finally, we all enjoyed a super catchy kineasthetic song, Head, shoulders, knees and toes!

 The four seasons 

We enjoyed the Aesop's fable "The Wind and the Sun" so much! Why not make a poster?
Our 3rd graders worked in teams to make a poster about the four seasons and the weather! Is it cold in autumn? Is it hot in summer? When do flowers bloom?

The final outcome was a beautiful, colourful representation of the four seasons accompanied by little 'windows' describing the weather!

 Plus, a smiling man holding an umbrella on a rainy day!

 Have a nice week ahead:)

What's the time Mr... Monkey?
4th Grade
Learning to tell the time can be boring... However, monkey clocks can make the difference! The kids made funny monkey clocks, coloured them and played a game in pairs using the monkey's hands to set the time!
