The end of this semester came...

Well, today we had the oral exam ... We are not very unhappy but can always be improved ... sometimes nerves don't let you show everything that you know.
But to be our first oral exam, I repeat, we are not too unhappy with the results. 
We know that we worked hard, we have studied and we have learnt lot of things and also we had a good time doing this course that without doubts we think that we will never forget this experience.

We want to thanks to Linda for lend us a bit of her knowledge and also for lend us a bit of her imagination developing funny activities and for make us have good moments .

Furthermore, thanks Linda for being at 100 percent in the classroom, motivating to us when we have had a poker face or when we have been almost asleep. We heartily thank your devotion and dedication to us in all this semester.

Our reflection this week


Hello people! I’m Noelia, the analyst this week.
I´m going to reflect about the activities done during this week.

  • What was the best part of the activities?

The best part of the activity was playing the game. It was so exciting because we can down lines if we taught a head of a snake. And we want to win the prize so all groups were so nervous.

  • What was the worse of the activities?

The worst of the activity was find the information and write the cards. It was so difficult because we don't have very clear if the question was good or not. Also we think to put yes /no questions but we can't because the question must be with open answer. 

Moreover there were some topics that were so difficult and we don't understand many things but we were investigating and more or less understand them.

  • What was the best moment of the week (in the work of the group)?

The best moment of the week was playing the game. It was so exciting and we were so nervous because we want to win the prize. And also Linda give as a prize for doing the best cards so we were so happy :)

  • What was the worse?

The worst moment was when we felt in a box twice and we lost the prize. We had study a lot and we have given the best of us. But as says Linda This is life!

  • What have you learnt?

We have known a bit of our regulation, and information about the topics such as management, school time and grouping, other structures and variations, financing issues, differences between public and private schools, assessment and certification,teaching methods and laws and structures.

  • What do you need to conserve -as a group- for the next weeks?

We have to keep as a group our desire to work hard, also keep it the good way that we complement us together and our good humour in difficult times.

  • What do you need to improve –as a group- for the next weeks?

We have to try to work more efficiently, trying not to spend time.  

Snakes & ladders

And this is the prize that we won for doing the best cards... WE WON THE FIRST PRIZE!
