We use present perfect every day, every night, every year and every …
We have broken.
They have forgotten.

9 May / Victory Day

Today war veterans were our guests at school. They talked about the war and peace, our greatest holiday Victory Day with our students. Our class had a special guest too. We asked him lots of different questions. Olya Subocheva composed her poem in no time at all. Enjoy!


Ветераны, ветераны
Не смотрели вы на раны.
Дрались доблестно и смело, чтобы победить.
Победить вам было трудно,
И враги были сильны,
Победить вам было трудно,
Но вы все-таки смогли.

Сквозь туманы, пыль и снег пробирались вы.
Трудно было вам за всех,
Но пробрались вы!

There are several monuments in our district. Here is one of them. 
There used to be a village called Strogino where our district is now. During the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 the people of the village earned money and donated their jewellery to buy a tank. They sent it to the front to fight the fascists who had invaded our country.
There will be a lot of flowers at the monument in a few days when we celebrate one of our dearest holidays, Victory Day.

World Water Day 2014 / at school and in Skype

22 March is World Water Day.
On Friday Class 5 students spoke about water with each other and with our guests from South Africa in Skype. We learnt a lot of interesting facts about water and thought of ways to save it. There are some posters and mini-projects on our board. Ann R created a presentation about World Water Day.
We also spoke about water with our guests Lin-lin from Taiwan, Mrs Hallows and Mr Sherman from South Africa.
