The 9th of May is Day of Europe, but this year it fell on Sarturday so we celebrated it on Friday 8th of May.
To begin this day year 1 and 2 had class and year 3 and 4 went to the S.U.M. to do some activities.
Year 1 and 2, as we finished our class and the bell rang we all went to the S.U.M. to do some activities. First of all, Carmen María gave an introduction to the day and explained a little bit about the day. Then year 1, said some phrases dedicated to the day in English. After that, year 2A sang the song “Live your Life”. To end these activities some children: Martín, Javi, Juan Jesús, Carlos, Jaime, Antonio and I played the national anthem of the happiness and at the same time year 1A played it but with their recorders. When we finished we had a round of aplause.
Afterwards, we went to our classrooms to put our instruments away. Then suddenly we went outside to the entrance gates. When we got outside, the association “Apdisiz” were there with superviser jackets to guide the way and there was also some teachers; some giving out the “dorsales” and some safety pins to put them on. Then, we all went outside of the gates, all prepared to begin the race. There were teachers dotted around the circuit to guide us the correct way. Carmen María was outside with a megaphone. She suddenly counted down: three, two, one.... After she announced the number one we all set off. We had to go down the Street “El Barrio”, then past the park that is on the way down, right the way down to the lake. When we all got there, Paco was there with a stamp and he stamped our number with the name of our highschool and the name of the asociation on it. After, we had to turn round and go back up the hill which passes by the park. Passing the Street “Puente del Agua” until we got to the highschool. There, we found a stall with some teachers on it giving everyone a little bottle of water and there was also a box of cakes.
Then after that, while year 3 and 4 were in the S.U.M. with the asociation Apdisiz, we did a gymkhana going to every classroom and to the football pitch. As soon as we finished the gymkhana we went to the S.U.M. so the asociation Apdisiz could say a bit about themselves and to see what they do. At the same time year 3 and 4 did the gymkhana. They showed us a presentation that a lady from the asociation had done, which was very interesting. They also showed us a video about a girl that on a normal day she developed brain damage and how she progressed through her life. One of the ladies from the asociation read out some of our messages and questions that we wrote dedicated to them. At the end of this, we all clapped and went outside to the playground. In a little while, we all went to the sports hall to taste the sweet and savoury dishes that everyone had made. Finally, Carmen María announced the prizes of the race and the yincana with a megaphone. She started with the winners of the race.
