Today we started by talking about sports and in particular extreme sports. When then faced our first challenge of the week; design and create a parachute to protect your egg! We then dropped them from the first floor to see if our parachutes worked correctly! After this looked at a speech from Rocky and then rewrote the speech to make it more relevant for ourselves. To finish the day we researched some paper airplane designs and held a competition to see who could create the best plane!
In today’s class we started with a quiz and then had to order the sports in terms of how much we thought age affected them. We then looked at how exactly age affects your performance. We then created a pamphlet for either a gym for the elderly or a gym for the young. To finish we looked at a little bit of Ultimate Beastmaster and discussed what we thought.
Today we have been to Climbat in Montjuic to climb, play and generally have all sorts of fun. Not only was this good exercise but also a good opportunity to practise our spoken English.
We started by talking about different tv shows and then watched a little bit of a TV show called The Apprentice. We looked at the task they had to complete and analysed their performance. We then started to think about what we would do in this situation. After coming up with some ideas we created a radio advertisement to get publicity for our new type of fitness class.
We revised what we had studied yesterday and then created a commentary about the new gym class we had created. We also created an interview with the trainer of the class and the students.
