Time to enjoy!

Smile, relax, forbide, do sport, go running, go on excursions,  try to say what you feel, go for a walk, draw and paint, smile at your parents, read a book, sing in the shower, keep your good memories, take some photos, listen to your friends, show your happiness, write your feelings, listen to the nature and respect the environment, help people, do what you have promised, let someone help you, look at flowers, help to your friends, turn the TV off and chat with your relatives, listen to your favourite music, learn something you have always wanted to do, phone your friends, close your eyes and imagine the waves on the sea, make someone feel important, make a list of things you are good at, go to the library and listen to the silence, say to your friends you love them, look at the stars, think about what you have, breathe, finish projects, don't worry if you have some mistakes, make friends, grow and be responsible and enjoy your summer.

Let me say thank you for your continued support this year.  It has been another great year for all of us and I'm already excited about what next year holds.

I hope you have a very happy and relaxing summer break. See you in September!

French Fries sunbathing!

A German artist has created some unusual sculptures using potatoes wearing sunglasses!
Peter Pink, who describes himself as a 'nonsense maker' uses vegetables to create surreal art in public spaces.
One of them sees potatoes on a beach, enjoying the weather by sunbathing. 
If you want to create this particular beach scene, you'll need cocktail umbrellas and tiny plastic sunglasses.
Here you have another activity for your summer days!

World celebrates Madiba's birthday!

Today is International Mandela's Day. 
News, famous people and leaders from all over the world have expressed their best wishes to Nelson Mandela on his 95th birthday today. He's still in a hospital in Pretoria, the administrative capital of South Africa, because his health is weak. 
But, why is Nelson Mandela so important?
Because  he went to prison for 27 years and he stood up  just for what he believed in. He believed that black people should have as many rights as white people. He sas offered to get out of prison but only if he gave up fighting for what he believed in but he refused!
So, from this blog I want to celebrate his birthday by sharing with you this video from BBC. 
Children in South Africa sing to celebrate Nelson Mandela's Birthday!

Story time

Meena, the main character in this story, hates books. 
 Do you like books? If anything books make you more knowledgeable so you can have interesting topics to talk  with your friends...and even if you don't have many friends, a good book will be your best friend!
Let's pay attention and watch this movie!
After that, try to answer the questions below:
1 ) Do Meena's parents like books?  
2 ) Has Meena got a pet?
3 ) Where was the cat when it was lost?
4 ) Were Meena's parents angry because of the mess?
5 ) What was Meena doing when her parents arrived?
