During this second term, Alex, a 6th grade student from Calypso, developed a project based on rugby for the English subject.
The idea of the project came out from Alex’s interests. He is a huge fan of rugby and he practices this sport in his free time. Plus, one of the most important tournaments of rugby, the Six Nations, started in February so it was the perfect occasion to work on it.
Alex’s project involved different tasks in which he had to put in practice the different skills of the English language (listening, reading, writing and speaking). However, what all these tasks demanded was a huge creative and imaginative effort.
A Sports News TV programme, a sports article (which would be later used to narrate the highlights of a rugby match) and video tutorials for his classmates to learn some concepts about rugby where the main aspects that are included in the final product of his work.
Alex and his English teacher, Alberto Gómez, are more than glad to share this project with everyone at school and they really hope we all like it.
