DAY 3: Wednesday water sports and blind date

Wednesday, in the morning, we went to the beach. Then our monitors divided us in two groups. One group  did kayaking in pairs and the other group tidy and wash the equipment. Later we went to the bungalow and had a shower it was freezing!!

IMG_1747Although we wore wet-suits water was still very cold. As the weather wasn’t warm enough and the currents were strong we change activities. Then we did problem solving and some other games. Lunch was again at 13:00 green beans, rice meat and fish.

WATER SPORTS : KAYAKING

In the evening we had a blind date. We did a funny game,  we pretend to meet some people and to get to know them we make some questions to choose the “perfect person”, that is “Mr. Right ” . Then we went to the bungalows and we prepared the wedding. Some of us designed the dress, others wrote the vows and others decided the menu for the wedding banquet. Then we celebrated the wedding following all the plans. We really had fun!

BLIND DATE

Tonight for dinner we have chicken, lentils and more to choose from!

Disco tonight hasn’t been so funny cause we did not know the songs or the lyrics, we came to bed earlier than yesterday!

AFTERNOON ACTIVITIES

Yesterday afternoon we went out of the camping to do horse riding and orienteering. They separated us in two groups. One group first did horse riding and the other orienteering and games. In orienteering we must find some letters in the trees all over the forest with the help of some clues and a compass. After that we played some games like shopping list, touch ball or races. When the horse’s group finished we changed the activities. In horse riding we followed a charming path. Some horses were Amigo, Hueso, yBlacky, Ninu, Monica…we really enjoyed the riding!

Our monitors speak ONLY ENGLISH, so  it is good for us to practice oral skills. We had already made groups of 5/6 to sleep, we were given our bungalow. It’s a wooden 2 storey building with bunk beds and a shared bathroom and small kitchen. We also have a table with 2 benches outdoors.

We had lunch at the dining room at 1 o’clock a bit early for us, it is a buffet where you can choose different food.

   
In the afternoon at 3 o’clock we made presentations to introduce ourselves, some activities and we also learnt to dance. We had free time, from 6,30 to 8 when we had dinner. Then we went to the disco and although we were tired we danced till midnight. It is very funny!

This next week 7th to 11th March a group of students of 3ºESO are taking an ‘Englñish Week’ we are travelling to Santa Susana, Barcelona, to experience a week in a camp with native teachers and monitors. There will be plenty of sport activities, English and fun! Are you ready to come? Remember to bring sport clothes, swimming suit, trainers, towels and sleeping bag.

Our English week is organized by Grupos Organizados. It is a stay centered on the practice of English of school students with  native English speakers via an intense coexistence with them while performing a multitude of activities in the natural environment.

PROGRAMA_EW_PDF

It is a stay where students practice “real English”, the everyday English they would use if they travelled to an English speaking country. We want our students to live firsthand what it would be like to be surrounded by the language. This is done in a real context of communication so in that way they feel that all of the English they study in school has meaning
