We have had a lot of rainy days recently, but the students have been braving the weather and coming to school and working hard.
The E-Class has been busy writing paragraphs about their houses, and have been working on prepositions of place. They have also been working on sentence structure and have produced some good interesting paragraphs. They have also endured some grueling mid-term tests, and have found possible weaknesses and gaps in their learning.
The F-Class meanwhile has been focusing on writing reviews on games, which is the topic we are studying in class this week. They brainstormed games and used “when clauses” to explain how the game is played. They then presented their work to the class. We also played a word game to warm up the class. The game is called Boggle. The real game has some dice with letters on them. The dice are shaken and then the letters, which are facing up, are used to make as many words as possible. When 3 minutes have elapsed, the players cross off the words that the other players got. A player gets a point, or 2 points for a five-letter word when none of the other players have the same word. The game is very fun, and the students can come to recognize common word forms.
You can try it. Look at the letters below and try to make as many words as you can. However, the letters must join each other, either straight across or diagonally. Give yourself 3 minutes and race against your friend or parents.

Finally, the G-class produced some great presentations about Eco-tourism. Eco-tourism is a kind of tourism, which attempts to limit harm to the local environment and people. We heard about many interesting projects in America, Australia and Pilau, and we heard about the pros and cons of tourism in those areas.
We are just over half way through the semester and have just 4 weeks before the summer holidays, so I think everyone is feeling positive and also looking forward to a well-earned holiday.
