This term we shall read some poetry in class. Let’s start with a couple of acrostics on friends and a word cloud to inspire you
An acrostic (Greek: ákros “top”; stíchos “verse”) is a poem or other form of writing in which the first letter, syllable or word of each line, paragraph or other recurring feature in the text spells out a word or a message.
You can also include an illustration to make it nicer
Here are some more examples written by very young kids:
We are going to ask you to write two acrostics. now, but first we’ll give you some help. Go to this site and follow the instructions. Let’s see what you come up with. Copy the result in a nice D4 sheet of paper. You can use coloured ones, but keep the same format, D4. You can also print it. At the bottom of the paper, write your name and your group. It will be useful to identify the writer when we display your work. For the first acrostic you can choose the topic. The second one has to be on your name. If you are inspired, you can include your family name too!
We are about to start watching a new movie ‘Stand by me’. Last term we watched ‘Matilda’. We thought it was a good way to discuss family relationships and school life. This term we’ll be working with friends and friendship. After watching the film you will tell us whether you think we made a good choice.
Give the following questions a thought. Then watch this short video.
- Have you got many friends?
- What about really close friends?
- How do you keep in touch with them?
- Do you hang around with them? What do you share with them?
- What do you look for in a friend? What qualities do you value most in a friend.
Now that you know your answers, watch this video and find out what other people have to say about friendship.
Listening activity. Copy the answers in your notebook.
- Did everyone answer they had lots of close friends
- How do the people in the video keep in touch with their friends
Most of them…
Some of them…
Only a few…
Only one of them…
None of them..
- Write at least 6 things people look for in a friend

Hi, everyone! this is the first post after Christmas. Some of you travelled really far during your vacations, as far as Costa Rica or Australia. The lucky ones told us about their trip. The ones that were not so lucky got the chance to travel virtually during English lessons. Every one chose a travel destination and booked a flight using a web site called Kayak.
Here follow three videos that will help you revise the vocabulary you learnt when your classmates told you what their journey. They will help you lerant procedures you should be familiar with if you want to catch a plane.
The first one focuses on the steps you should follow at airports
This one focuses on planes and flights: crew, runway, flight attendant; pilots, cockpit, cabin; take off; land; trolley; baggage; luggage
Can you guess how many people are flying up there? listen to this video and find out.
Finally, the third one is a mini lesson. A teacher revises different aspects of going on a vacation.
Check that you understand the following words: journey, airline, trip, currency, passport, customs, boarding card, luggage, baggage, sight seeing, tourist attraction, tourist trap
Homework. 3rd February:
