WELCOME BACK...

Today's the first day of the 2013-2014 school year. Once again we open up this blog to give students opportunities to keep in touch with English in context.
This course, I'll be teaching 1st ESO & 1st BAC, so many entries will have focus on them, but you know that the blog is open to everybody.
So welcome back to you all and good luck.

September brings in a new academic year where kids will be moving class, meeting new classmates and teachers.
  • In the UK, schoolchildren wear school uniforms with their school’s badge sewn on their blazer or jumper. Every year parents have to buy new uniforms (children have a habit of growing out of their uniforms with lightning speed!). Most of these uniforms consist of a blazer (jacket), a pair of trousers or shorts (boys), skirts (girls),shirts, jumpers, cardigans, socks and shoes. Every school has a different uniform with specific colours.
  • Then there is the school stationery to buy, for example, exercise books, pencils, sharpeners, pens, rulers, erasers, scissors, highlighter pens, pencil sharpeners and pencil cases. Anything else I’ve forgotten?
  • The start of school sees an increase in traffic on the roads especially with parents doing the school run in their cars. Some walk to school accompanied by their parents, normally mothers, when they are in junior school. As soon as they reach secondary school (13 years old), they do NOT want to be seen any where near a parent!
