Amazing animals!

In year 5 we are learning about animals. Vocabulary,  a story about four dragons, animal facts...
Here you are some entertaining videos about some amazing animals:

The blue whale is the largest animal ever to live on our planet... it's even bigger than the biggest dinosaurs!!

The cheetah is a large feline living in Africa and parts of Iran. The cheetah can run faster than any other land animal, as fast as 112 to 120 km/h! In this video you can compare a cheetah to Usain Bolt, the fastest human being:

And we got our award! (Europe Day Awards Ceremony)

Last Friday 8th May, we joined other participant schools in Europe Day Awards Ceremony in Mérida. We had a great time. There we made friends with "El Rodeo" primary school students from Jerez de los Caballeros. We collected our award and were very happy for it. 
Now we are looking forward for June 17th to visit Isla Mágica amusement park and enjoy our prize. 

What an unforgettable day for us!

Posing with our award with happy faces :)

Foam flowers for Mother's Day

This year we made some foam flowers as Mother's Day present. 
I got the idea from Manualidades On website. It is very easy and quick to do and the flowers are very beautiful.

You will need: 
  • Foam from different colours.
  • A sheet of card for the patterns.
  • Pencil and rubber.
  • Scissors.
  • Long wooden sticks for the stems.
To learn about the process and see some more photos you can have a look at Ale Jimenez's article in the original website.
