This is an acrostic poem on weekends. Do you know what an acrostic poem is?

Waited seven days
Each minute like an hour
Even the weather cooperated
Kept all my promises

Enjoyment abounding
Never a dull moment
Dad, oh, no, it's over already!

What was your most enjoyable moment this weekend?

I liked this one...

I was reading today and I came across this statement from another educator from abroad. I really liked it. What do you think?

"We all have many roads to success. We might not be on the same one, but the key is to get on one."

Which is "your road to success"?

Today's activity comes from the Sporcle website and is a quick test to see if you know the 100 most commonly used words in the English language.

You will see a grid with 100 space and a time limit of 12 minutes set and ready.

Before you start, think about what some of the most commonly used words might be. In English articles, pronouns and prepositions are used in almost every sentence, so you might think about starting with those.
When you are ready click on 'Ready? Click to Start'. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Have a nice Sunday!!

The Mysteries of Harris Burdick

Your task now is to choose two images to write your stories. Think and observe the images carefully. They must be different as you need one for Spanish and one for English. You will be expected to write good fantasy stories in both languages including all the relevant fantasy elements, some mystery in order to hook the reader's attention as well as the caption. All the best!
Please, keep your choice to yourself. Don't share it with your friends! Thank you! We hope with Mariana that you enjoy this wrapping up of the fantasy genre as much as we do! If you want to see it bigger, please click

Welcome back!!

It was really nice meeting you today after three long weeks! We have four more months in Y6 with lots of important events and knowledge to share together. Enjoy your days in primary school and take advantage of all the opportunities that are offered to you!

Now read this quotation:

"I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances." By Martha Washington

What is this quotation referring to?
