English 5 – 06/04 (Easter)

Good morning, everyone.

Tal y como os dije en mi entrada del pasado jueves, estamos de vacaciones (¡¿hurra?!). Vacaciones extrañas, estas. Seguimos encerrados en casa por cuarta semana consecutiva y sabemos que no vamos a poder hacer nada que no hayamos hecho ya durante las tres anteriores. En fin, es lo que hay y no podemos hacer nada para cambiar la situación, así que más nos vale dejar de preocuparnos por ello y simplemente dejarnos llevar.

El caso es que quería recordar lo que ya os advertí el jueves pasado. Es muy importante que durante estos días dediquéis un rato (o dos o tres, vaya) a practicar las actividades que tengo colgadas para vosotros en Quizlet. Y ya de paso, tampoco estaría de más que terminarais de hacer los seis ejercicios que colgué para vosotros en Educaplay. Más que nada porque la inmensa mayoría se conectó, hizo uno o dos… y ahí se paró, no sé muy bien por qué.

Así que ya sabéis, manos a la obra y dedicadme un rato de vuestro tiempo.

Cuidaos. Bye bye!

English 5 – 02/04 Answer Key

Good morning, everyone.

These are the right answers to the exercises I posted yesterday. Check them and do the necessary changes in your books.

2) Look at the pictures. Complete the sentences. Use the past simple or past continuous of the verbs in brackets.

  1. The mechanic was repairing the car when the phone rang.
  2. The Green family was walking to the beach when the storm started.
  3. He was reading a magazine when someone took his bag.
  4. Edward was playing football when he hurt his leg.
  5. Alice was doing her homework when the fireworks started.

4) Look at the table. Write sentences. Use when and the correct form of the verb.

  1. I was getting ready for school when something strange happened.
  2. Dad was eating breakfast when his boss rang.
  3. When Dad put the phone down, he was looking worried.
  4. He was smiling when he told us the good news.
  5. When I was walking to school, I realized it was the weekend.
  6. When the builder was drinking tea, the wall fell down.
  7. Kate was smiling when I looked at her.
  8. We were looking for Kim’s present when we saw her.

And that’s it.

Remember that it’s Easter next week and that we will have no new posts until we come back on April 14th. Although maybe, by then, we can go back to school. Wouldn’t that be great?

But I’m afraid we won’t. I hope I’m  wrong, I really do… But I think I’m not. Well, I guess we can only hope.

Until then, please stay healthy. Bye bye!

English 5 – 02/04

Good morning, everyone!

We’re back to normal, working on some old-fashion style exercises. In other words, time to grab pencil and paper.

Today, we are going to keep studying the use of the Past Simple and the Past Continuous tenses. And we are going to do it by completing a couple of exercises in your Grammar Friends Book. Open them on pages 73 and 74 and do exercises 2 and 4. Remember that I will provide you with the right answers in a future post.

In case you left it at school, here are two pictures.

And although that’s the end of your homework, there’s more!

No new homework doesn’t mean that you have nothing more to do. Quite the opposite. Even though you probably don’t remember, it’s Easter holidays next week. Hooray! (I guess?). I am not going to ask you to do lots of homework during those days, but I do want you to practice the activities I posted on Quizlet. Is that alright?

I don’t know if we’re going back to school after Easter. I really don’t know. But wether we go back or not, I will somehow ask you to pass a test on those things (Present and Past tenses and irregular verbs). Study them. Practice them. Seriously.

In the meantime, stay safe and healthy. Bye bye!

Natural Science 6 – 02/04


It was really nice to see most of you online. I loved it.

As I told you before, we have nearly finished Unit 7 and it is time to complete the review section. You have plenty of time to do it, though… It’s Easter next week, remember?

Well. Your homework for next week is this: exercise 1 on page 110 and exercises 1, 2, 3 and 5 on page 111.

As I see things, I am afraid that school will still be closed after the break. I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t think so.

If the situation is still the same, then we will check your answers in an online class. It’ll be on April the 14th, probably, but don’t take that for granted. I might change the exact date if needed. Be sure, though, that we will check your answers live. I want to make sure that there are no problems understanding all the concepts that we have studied these days and the best way to do it is by having an online class so that you can ask me any questions and I can try to solve your doubts.

Well, that’s it for today. Stay healthy and remember that this too shall pass. Bye bye!



No books… No new exercises… No boring stuff… Nope!

Today, we’re doing a live online class! Hooray!

At 10 o’clock, make sure that you connect to my virtual room by clicking on this link so that we can see each other. Yikes! I’m so pumped up!

I’ll be there waiting for you all. See you soon!

Natural Science 6 – 31/03 Answer Key

Good morning, everyone!

As usual, let me provide you with the right answers so that you can check yours. I only asked you to complete two exercises, though. Easy-peasy.

1) What type of heat transfer is used in these five situations?

  • a. a bonfire in a garden. Radiation
  • b. a radiator in a room. Convection (according to the Answer Key, though; however, radiation makes perfect sense for me too)
  • c. a frying pan on a stove. Conduction
  • d. an iron. Conduction
  • e. a hot-air balloon. Convection

2) Look at the words below. Which objects or materials are good insulators of heat? Which ones are good conductors?

  • a. feathers. Insulator
  • b. aluminium. Conductor
  • c. brick. Insulator
  • d. steel. Conductor
  • e. cardboard. Insulator
  • f. silver. Conductor
  • g. wool. Insulator
  • h. iron. Conductor

And we’re done! See you next time!
