The Jumping Frog

We played "The Jumping Frog" in our Sharing to Learn session, with our Language Assistants Georgina, Pol, Irene and Alba.



Look at the photos! It was a great fun!






You only need a "Jumping Frog", a box, three coloured marks on the table and the score instructions...
Have fun!

Dancing bones!!!

We are learning the names of some bones of our body and dancing with this song!!

They are all connected:
The foot bone is connected to the legbone, 
the leg bone is connected to the knee bone, 
the knee bone is connected to the thigh bone ....

But it is more fun to dance as the skeleton does!!!


Look at the lyrics and complete the worksheet for homework. 

In Grade 5 we've been working on the Human Respiratory System with our English Science teacher Enric. We did some parts of this topic in catalan and some in English.

It has been a great fun and very, very, very interesting!




Some interesting facts to learn:

  • The primary organs of the respiratory system are the lungs, which function to take in oxygen and expel carbon dioxide as we breathe. 
  • The gas exchange process is performed by the lungs and respiratory system. Air, a mix of oxygen and other gases, is inhaled. 
  • In the throat, the trachea, or windpipe, filters the air. The trachea branches into two bronchi, tubes that lead to the lungs. 
  • Once in the lungs, oxygen is moved into the bloodstream. Blood carries the oxygen through the body to where it is needed. 
  • Red blood cells collect carbon dioxide from the body’s cells and transports it back to the lungs. 
  • An exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide takes place in the alveoli, small structures within the lungs. The carbon dioxide, a waste gas, is exhaled and the cycle begins again with the next breath.
  • The diaphragm is a dome-shaped muscle below the lungs that controls breathing. The diaphragm flattens out and pulls forward, drawing air into the lungs for inhalation. During exhalation the diaphragm expands to force air out of the lungs. 
  • Adults normally take 12 to 20 breaths per minute. Strenuous exercise drives the breath rate up to an average of 45 breaths per minute.
