Superlative board game

Today was a funny day! Students in Level 6 were practising the superlative form of adjectives and How+adjective questions with a workgroup board game.


The players need one board and one set of cards for each group of three or four students; a fact file; counters and a dice for each group.


  1. Divide students into groups of three or four.
  2. Give each group a board, two fact files, a set of cards,
    counters and a dice.
  3. They should place the cards face down in a
    pile and place their counters on the pirate ship (START).
  4. Students should take it in turns to throw the
    dice and move round the board. When they
    land on a colour square, they should take a card
    from the pile according to the colour on the square and answer a question. The others should check the answer.
  5. If the answer is not correct, the player misses a turn.
  6. The player who reaches the treasure first is the winner.
  7. Once everyone has finished, put each group together with another group and get them to report back on the answers to the questions.

There are some special squares: if the players land on the island, they will miss a turn. The treasure map wil let the players go foward two spaces. On the other hand, if they land on the ship wreck, they will have to go back two spaces. The worst square is the one with a skull… It is the unluckiest square. They should start again!

3º ciclo, Level 6, WORLD MISSION

World Mission 1 in Grade 6

World Mission 1 in Grade 6 is over. Although it was a long hard task, the final leaflets were awesome.

This time our work plan promoted single and group working. The goal of this mission was not just carrying out the task, but they had to learn how to work in small groups giving their best.

Working in a collaborative way has a variety of benefits, including increasing students’ self-esteem and responsability. And I must say that it got to know each other a little bit better and we could learn more about our skills and strengths.

A nosa primeira misión en 6° está rematada. A pesares de que nos levou o seu, os folletos finais quedaron xenial.

Desta volta o noso plan de traballo incluía tanto o traballo individual como en pequeño grupo. O obxectivo da misión non era soamente realizala, senón que os rapaces foran quen de traballar xuntos dando o mellor de si.

O traballo colaborativo ten moitos beneficios no alumnado, incluindo o aumento da súa autoestima e da responsabilidade. Teño que recoñecer que nos permitíu coñecernos un pouco millor e aprender sobre as nosas habilidades e fortalezas.



    3º ciclo, Large numbers


    Do you know how to read larges numbers in English?

    In English, s you can see, we use commas in large numbers.

    Commas separates large numbers into smaller pieces and each small piece has no more than three numbers in it 

    Let’s read them separately.

    The British tend to add “and” in large numbers between hundreds and tens

    Now you just have to say them in order, and when you see a comma, you add another word like thousand or million

    Writing dates in English

    We write the date in English in different ways. The most common way in British English is to write the day of the month first (ordinal numbers), then the month (starting with a capital letter) and then the year:

     7th September, 2021

    *You can write first the day of the week.

    Monday, 1st December, 1997

    When we say dates in English , we say ‘the’ before the number followed by ‘of’. For example,

    It’s the first of January.


    In English, DAYS AND MONTHS always with an initial capital: January, February, Tuesday, Sunday,…

    All about me is a classsical and perfect resource to kick off a new school year. If you have a new group of students and you don’t know them yet, this activity is a good way to learn each other (my family, my hobbies, my skills, my class, my teacher and grade, my favourites, etc..). Furthermore, another goal beside it is to help pupils to bring back what they learnt last school year in a fun way.

    All about me é un recurso perfecto e moi socorrido para comezar o curso escolar, tanto se comezamos cun novo grupo de alumnos e alumnas como se continuamos co do curso pasado. É un recurso perfecto para coñecernos así como para recordar todo o que aprenderon o ano pasado.

    This activity can be complete and colour by the children, then they can present themselves to their classmates. So, another great benefit related to this type of activities is that they can practice their oral skills and, at the same time, the teacher can learn some information about them.

    Esta actividade pode ser completada e decorada para ser presentada aos compañeiros e compañeiras de clase. Polo que, este tipo de actividades resultan moi beneficiosas para practicar as habilidades orais á vez que son unha boa fonte para obter información dos nosos alumnos e alumnas.

    This year we have a new crafting version. They can create their own and customized suitcase. I recommend you to print it in a DINA4 size and in cardboard paper, so it will be more resistant.

    Este ano temos unha nova versión. Cada un puido crear e curtomizar a súa maleta. Para que a manualidade adquira máis consistencia, é recomendable imprimir en cartulina.

    Finally, it is worthy to use them as a part of the classroom decoration. In this regard, one of the best things about All About Me activities is that they are in a position to build self-esteem. Children feel proud to share their personal interests , likes and their “suitcases” with their classmates.

    Finalmente, merece a pena expor os traballos na clase. Neste sentido, este tipo de actividades son moi beneficiosas para traballar a autoestima do alumnado. Os rapaces síntense moi orgullosos cando poden compartir os seus traballos así como os seus intereses e gustos cos seus compañeiros.

    The origins of Halloween

    Halloween was originally a Celtic festival, celebrated in the British Isles, called Samhain. The Celts believed that on the last night of October the souls of the dead visited the earth.

    The Romans adopted the festival too and it spread.

    When the Catholic church began celebrating All Soul’s Day on the first of November, the mass was called the mass of All Hallows, so the evening before was called Hallowe’en, the evening before All Hallows.

    Nowadays, Halloween is celebrated in many countries all over the world.
