Year 8 Classes de Mme Gavrilenko – Model text

 

 

 

Here is the text we looked at together.  You will notice that I’ve added in something in the past tense.  What level would this piece be now?  2 E-praise points for the first person to come to me with a translation of the past tense section.  Remember the colour coding and try to include examples of those in your work.  Bonne chance!

Day 2 – Taking it ice and easy

Our intrepid Spanish adventurers set out today for a day at the Eden Project.  They started off exploring the biomes (though word has it that some of the boys were more interested in two-legged female forms of local wildlife).

They ended up with a skating session and we are glad to report that there were no broken bones (luckily Mrs Gerry stayed away from the ice!) and they all returned safe and sound at the end of the day.

Welcome to England!

It’s Day One of the Spanish exchange.  Twenty-three Spanish students arrived last night after a long journey and, after a night with their new English families, came into school today looking cheerful and enthusiastic.  They spent some time with Year 9 students interviewing each other and then had a tour of the school thanks to some excellent Year 7 guides.  After that, it was off to Exeter with their English partners for a whistle-stop tour of the city centre then an afternoon of bowling.  A great start to the week!
