Only I will be able to post on this blog, but pupils and others are welcome to add comments. Please note that to protect your privacy, as this site will be accessible on the internet, please only give your first name when adding a comment.
Here is a display of work of class 2E1 (2nd year German). Below is the task they were asked to complete.
"Write a short letter to our new German assistant Benjamin (in German). I will ask Benjamin to pick the best letter, and there will be a small prize. Must be handed in by 12th September. You must mention the following things:
Talk about what you like and don't like to do (hobbies)
One or two of your favourite things.
Where you live (describe the area you live in and your house/flat)
What you do in the different rooms in your house, how do you help at home?
Describe your bedroom."
Well done to everyone in 2E1! Our comic relief song raised a total of £54 from a mixture of online donations sales of the CD in school. A special thanks to Craig (Y), Kirstin, Shannon, Kieran (M), and Andrew (K) for giving up your free time to sell the CD in school!
2E1 have recorded a song called "Beyans Geschichte" (Beyan's Story) for Comic Relief. Beyan is a 10 year old Ethiopian girl who is featured on the official Comic Relief website. You can read her story here:
The following game is to revise some of the past participles that we have seen/used over the past few lessons (the 'ge________' word at the end of the sentence that we use to make the perfect/past tense!)
You have to choose the correct one, and if you do you can take a shot at the goal. It can be played on your own or in pairs.
Last week the pupils of 2E1 had a poster competition. In groups of 3, they had to design a poster about Montrose, making them as colourful and interesting as possible, but also using as much German as possible. Well done to Naomi, Daniel and Kieran M, who won the prize for the best poster. You can see all of them here.
