A new sing-along: How can you mend a broken heart?

One of the bands I’ve loved forever were the Bee Gees. Their music was part of my teen years and each of their songs has a place in my heart and are real keepsakes. This afternoon one of the songs I like best suddenly started playing in my mind and I thought I’d just share so that you can sing along and enjoy the beautiful melody and lyrics of this one. Hope you like it!

I could never see tomorrow, but I was never told about the sorrow.

And how can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining?
What makes the world go round?
How can you mend a this broken man?
How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again.

I can still feel the breeze that rustles through the trees
And misty memories of days gone by
We could never see tomorrow, noone said a word about the sorrow.

And how can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining?
What makes the world go round?
How can you mend this broken man?
How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again.

Let’s play Battleship this Christmas!

The kids attending SEP classes have been playing Battleship in order to practise their ABCs and numbers.

Now you can play Battleship too with this grid. I advise you to substitute the typical squares for words: f.i. a five-letter word, a four-letter word, two three-letter words and one two-letter word. At the end of the game your ‘enemy’ can guess what the words were 😉

Have fun!!!

A Christmas play at school

Blue Mango Theatre visited us today and performed Santa’s Star for P3 to 3rd graders. It was a lovely play and our kids enjoyed it so much -the plot, the songs and the mise-en-scène were great. 4th, 5th and 6th graders will have their play, Robin Hood, in June.

Good news for you, Grades 5 & 6!

As you all know we’ve just begun a school year full of exciting new activities that I’m sure will boost your skills in English 😃😉! Epals email exchange is one of them and our 6th graders are getting their messages ready for their new pals in Naples, Maine, a beautiful town on the northeast coast of the USA.

We’ll be working together with Lake Region Middle School throughout this school year and Grades 6 (until mid-November) and 7 and us will share language (Spanish/English) and culture for the next nine months. Ms. Andrea Utz Gallivan is the teacher at the other side of the Atlantic. Stay tuned, will be back with more info in the coming weeks!
