0511-0908-2515-5718_teens_streaming_out_of_their_classroom_clipart_image4Weekly summary: 12th to 23rd October

This summary covers two weeks for two reasons: 

1. You had your first formal examination, so you spent one session taking the exam  and another one correcting it.  

2.  Monday the 11th there was no school, so we only had 3  hours over the 2 weeks to see new contents.

What did we do these 2 weeks? Write a tick next to the things you did. Check in your notebook if you have notes on all the aspects included in the summary.

Week project: Old shops and business city hunt.

 On Friday, we organised the groups to do the power point presentations and discussed how to do it . You will work in groups of three. See the instructions published on th blog on the 12th of October under the heading City life explorers project (1): Old shops and business hunt


We took the exam and corrected it.

We completed the gaps from two songs “Penny Lane” and “Gone”.



pronun1Phonetics and pronunciation:

This week we did a lot of pronunciation practice using songs.

We learnt to memorize words using rhyme and catchy music.

We became ” walking words” and moved around the classroom telling  our classmates what we were in our new life as new words.

We sang  and learnt to pronounce words and shorten them following the music.

Learning to learn :

  • We learnt that in the blog we can find guidelines and links to help us do our tasks.
  • We learnt that our notebook is essential to organise our learning.

Homework for Monday :


  1. Go over the dossier to complete the parts of the exam you did not answer, for example Chaplin’s biography.
  2. Go over the  vocabulary matching exercises handouts and tongue twisters handouts  to answer the exam correctly.
  3. Use the blog to answer and correct the exam : sounds, vocabulary.
  4. Copy in the notebook the narration of the fragments of Chaplin’s film.


 Post in the blog your opinion on  two current debates:
