2010/11. 1.en.1.welcome to your class blog

Dear students.

My name is María Loredo, you already know that, and this year I will be your English teacher and also your tutor. On top of that, I will be with Diana, your Science teacher one hour a week, which means that we are going to spend a lot of time together. I hope we’ll have a great time and that you’ll learn many things and also have fun.

Your language teachers, Emili, Bernat, and myself, will be working together on the same topic, preparing outings and collaborating on creating materials and activities for your group. Virtudes, the German teacher,  and Inés, the French teacher  will also join us in some occasions. After all, we are all language teachers, so it is only natural that we teach you the same things.

The first topic this year that will keep us working for a while is our city, Palma. We shall work on different aspects: signs, buildings, transport, shops, museums and problems that affect city life.  There will also be some outings that will be as important as our class work.

Apart from cities, this first term we shall be working on names. Names are like our presentation card. There’s a lot in a name, and we hope you’ll have fun playing with names a bit.

Finally, it is also important in these first weeks to learn how to present  homework, how to take notes and how to organize the information you get during lessons.  We’ll use some of the posts that we made for the former students of 1ESO E and some examples from their work. Maybe we’ll ask them to come to our class to explain to you how to do it.

This last week I was away working at the university entrance examination, PAU, so you had no English and had to read a book in English and write a summary. This week we’ll check what you did and we shall start with the topic of cities one week from now.

That is all for now, I will not make this post any longer. Welcome again and good luck in this new school year!
