English Urban Summer Camp: July, Day 3

First thing this morning we greeted each other with a song. We had lots of fun dancing and repeating the English vocabulary. After breakfast the groups took turns to go to the swimming pool. The younger groups filled out a worksheet “All about me” where we had to answer questions about ourselves (in English) and draw ourselves. The older children played a gesture game which was a great laugh. We have been gardeners and planted a seed in a cup with soil, In the playroom we continued with the board games, and sports we participated in many different activities from basket ball to tag. In our music corner we were learning more about musical instruments especially the xylophone. Each day is packed of all kinds of activities.

English Urban Summer Camp: July, Day 2

Welcome yo ( Indonesia)
Another year we started our workshop illusion.
On this occasion, we moved to Indonesia and specifically on the music room, became familiar with their instruments and their dances.
With the xylophone we are starting to maintain a pulse, and learn this characteristic notes and rhythms.

With de movement, we started to work the Ketchak dance ( Body movements of swinging over fire)
The dance representa the work of Romeo and Juliet.

On the other hand, there is always a litte time for a good dip, board games and other activities, without forgetting our meditación after eating.
Where we learn to manage our emotions through breating.
To continue enyoing.

English Urban Summer Camp: Day 5

Fun Friday!

Today was a little different, we started off our morning with a stroll in the park, singing along to walking in the jungle searching to a see what animals we could find. There were different insects, birds and all shapes and sizes of different dogs. We found a spot of shade and sat in a circle to eat our breakfast. Shortly after we went on the hunt for frogs, hopping along the way until we reached the pond. The frogs were hiding between the flowers and grass and were hard to spot although we did manage to see a couple. We wondered back to the school just in time to play some sports outside before it started to rain and the fun had to continue inside. We played a game where we hid fruit flashcards, the monitor shouted out a fruit (in English) and the children had to find the corresponding flashcards. We also played lots of board games together after lunch, we were dancing to mini disco songs where we have to listen carefully to be able to follow the dance moves, it was great fun!

English Urban Summer Camp: Day 3

Today was the third day of our super summer camp. As everyday, we started playing several games in the playgraund until breakfast time. Once we satisfyed our hunger, the oldest kids played some typical games all together. Then, we all had an awesome time playing and splashing in the pools. Finally, after a delicious lunch, we spend the afternoon playing chess and watching a film. A new adventure awaits us tomorrow, and we are looking forward for it.
