 Roger Priddy left school at 16 with just one qualification—in art. He went to Berkshire College of Art and Design and trained as an illustrator.  His first job in children’s books was working with the publisher Peter Usborne, at Usborne Publishing, and then he worked with Peter Kindersley at Dorling Kindersley, where he spent 16 years. Priddy became Creative Director of DK’s Children’s Division and was Managing Director of the children’s mass market publisher Funfax when it was acquired by DK

SIR CHARLIE STINKY SOCKS AND THE REALLY BIG ADVENTURE
Once upon a time, there was a deep, dark forest, where monstrous trees groaned, terrible beasties moaned and wiggly woos waited to tickle your toes. Nobody ever went there until…
Sir Charlie Stinky socks, his good grey mare and his pet cat Envelope decide the time has come for a really big adventure. Sir Charlie packs his best sword and his sandwiches and off he goes, over the hills and far away, until he gets to the deep, dark forest. Sir Charlie doesn’t flinch when he meets the beasties, or the dragon, or the wily witch, but when he comes across the princess, he realises he’s met his match!
Kristina Stephenson
Kristina Stephenson was born in the desert and by the age of two she was very good at building sand castles.  As a child she loved making up stories and making a mess with paper, paints and glue. She still does, although now she clears up the chaos herself. After school she trained as a set and costume designer and had a successful career in theatre and Children’s Television until she had her children. Wanting to stay at home with them she turned her hand to illustration, working at night in an attic in a house in London (it was a very nice attic) where she illustrated many non- fiction books. Inspired to write her first picture book by her son Charlie (who does not have Stinky Socks), she showed it to a friend in the book trade. Thankfully for us he recommended that she send it to Egmont. With a change in artwork style, the bold, brave Sir Charlie Stinky Socks embarked on the first of his many really big adventures.
Kristina now lives in Wiltshire with her husband, who is a musician, her daughter, her son, a dog, two cats and a tortoise.  She juggles work with family life in a busy, bustling house without an attic – now she writes in an old turquoise VW camper van called BRU. She loves her work but she still loves the theatre and she’s not as shy as she used to be, so … who knows.

WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL LLEONS!!!!!
TODAY WE HAD OUR FIRST ENGLISH CLASS. WE DECIDED THE NAMES OF OUR GROUPS! WE ARE LEOPARDS

You can see the story and listen to the song here!

This week we had our first English class!
We read the book: The mixed up Chameleon.
 We loved it!!!
It is about a Chameleon.
The chameleon's life was not very exciting until the day it discovered it could change not only its colour but its shape and size,too. When it saw the wonderful animals in the zoo, it immediately wanted to be like them -- and ended up like all of them at once -- with hilarious results.
Eric Carle (born June 25, 1929) is an American designer, illustrator, and writer of children's books. He
 is most famous for The Very Hungry Caterpillar, a picture book with few words that has been 
translated into more than 55 languages. Since it was published in 1969 he has illustrated more than 70 
books, most of which he also wrote, and more than 125 million copies of his books have been sold
 around the world.  He won the biennial Laura Ingalls Wilder Award for his career contribution to
 American children's literature in 2003
There was a cardboard with the chameleon with its parts from different animals stacked on. I asked them to say the different parts, the colour and the animal! They did a great job!!
WELCOME BACK!!! WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO SEE YOU AND TO KNOW YOUR  CLASS NAME!!!!!
We first read the book Harold and the purple crayon. It is about a boy called Harold who can create a world of his own simply by drawing it. We had a Din- A4 black cardboard and some purple crayons with different shapes. We had triangles, squares, rectangles and circles. The goal was to create a drawing using the shape as a base.

After that we created the Picots and the green crayons story book.  We had to follow a sequence. Each couple had to start following a pattern and had to create a one line drawing till the end pattern. The main topic was WE LIKE PLAYING... 
HAROLD AND THE PURPLE CRAYON
Harold and the Purple Crayon is a children’s book written by Crockett Johnson and originally published in 1955. 
 The main character is the boy named Harold who is a curious four-year-old who, armed with his purple crayon, draws an imaginary world all of his own. If on a moon less night Harold wants to go walking in the moonlight, for example, he simply takes his trusty purple crayon and draws one.  And if there is no path to walk on, he draws a path.
Crockett Johnson was the pen name of cartoonist and children's book illustrator David Johnson Leisk (October 20, 1906–July 11, 1975). He is perhaps best known for the comic strip Barnaby (1942–1952) and the Harold series of books begun with Harold and the Purple Crayon.
From 1965 until his death Johnson created over a hundred paintings relating to mathematics and mathematical physics. Eighty of these are found in the collections of the National Museum of American History
Do you want to see the story?
We made a lovely caterpillar!!
If you want to make one at home we show you how to do it and the material needed.
We need:

                                       
A needle, wool, pompon: a ball of tufted silk, wool, etc...
mouldable steel and wool stick, eyes, silicone machine,    scissors
First we have to cut a piece of wool. Then we have to put the wool trough the needle’s hole and make a knot at the end. We choose four pompons (the bigger one is the head) and we put them in order. We start sewing the pompons. We take the last caterpillar pompon and we put the needle through it. We repeat it with the other four pompons.
We cut a piece of mouldable steel and wool stick and we bend it to make the antennas. Then we put it on the caterpillar’s head and we sew the antennas on the head. After that we cut the spare wool. Finally we use the silicone machine to stick the eyes on the caterpillar’s head.
Once upon a time there was a small egg on a leave....   but suddenly the egg broke and a small caterpillar came up. It was very hungry so it started eating and the small caterpillar started to grow. On Satuday, after eating a lot, it was not feeling well so on Sunday it decided to eat only a leave. It created a chrysalis. Two weeks later a beautifull butterfly appeared! Do you want to play a game about the Butterfly life cycle?
CLICK HERE TO PLAY An amazing way to learn the days of the week.  Do you want to hear the song?
An incredible story to start de second term English classes. The story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a simple one that emphasizes numbers and days of the nweek. The caterpillar is not only very hungry, but he also has unusual tastes in food, ones that delight children. After popping out of an egg on Sunday, the very hungry caterpillar eats holes through the book's pages as he eats his way through a variety of foods, beginning with one apple on Monday and two pears on Tuesday and ending with five oranges on Friday and 10 different foods on Saturday (chocolate cake, ice cream, a pickle, Swiss cheese, salami, a lollipop, cherry pie, sausage, a cupcake, and watermelon).
Not surprisingly, the very hungry caterpillar ends up with a stomach ache. Fortunately, a serving of one green leaf helps. The now very fat caterpillar builds a cocoon. After staying in it for two weeks, he nibbles a hole in the cocoon and emerges a beautiful butterfly. For an entertaining explanation of why his caterpillar comes out of a cocoon rather than a chrysalis, see Eric Carle's Web site.

An old woman makes a gingerbread man. He jumps out of the oven and runs out of the house. He runs away from the old woman, the old man, a cow, a horse, and a fox. They all want to catch the gingerbread man, but they can't catch him. Then he comes to a river. Oh, no! He can't swim!!
On the 14th of December we did the Gingerbread Man Cookies!!!
Do you want to see how we cdid them?
Finally we played with our bodies, with shadow puppets.... We had so much fun!!!!!  And we started introducing our shadows in English!!!!

We went to the Psicomotricitat room. But it was really dark!!! There was a sheet, a slide machine, and some shadow puppets.
-What are these things for?? -We can create shadows!!!!! -REALLY??? How can we do that??? -You have to switch the machine on and you have to put the shadow's puppet here! -Ah! ok!!!! And they created a magic world!!!!! Do you want to see it?? Let's play a game called: Catch my shadow if you can!!!!!!  We play with a friend. I don't want you to stamp your feet on my shadow. If you do, you will win!!! So I will run really fast, as fast as I can! And I won't let you catch my shadow!! If you catch it, I'll try to catch yours!!!!!! If I stand on a big shadow(a natural one) then my shadow disapears!!!!! Mmmmmmm! nobody can catch my shadow if I stay here!! Picots!!!!!! You are so clever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Neus is reading a book called Peter Pan. We know Peter Pan has got a shadow but....What is a shadow?? -What is this thing on the floor???
-It is an Oreneta!!!!!!! -And why is there an Oreneta on the floor?? -It is a shadow!!! -Ah! and why is there a shadow there?? -Because the sun is behind us!!! Ah! Right! -Why don't we create our shadows? -Yes!!!!!!  So we had a basket with seven different fruits. -Let's see what we have in the basket... -Oh look! That's really strange! Do you remember its name? -Avocado! -Well done! Do you want to touch it? You can smell it as well if you want! -It's green! -What colour do you think is the inside? -Green!! - I'll open it with a knife! -Uau! Look! It has a very big bone inside! -Oh! It is like a ball! Let's taste it. Do you like it? -No! becs! -I like it!!  -What is this? -An orange!!! Is it acid? -No! -Sometimes! -Do you like oranges? -Yes!! -But they are very similar to tangarines! Can you say a difference? -Oranges are bigger! -That's true!  -Look! and...what is this fruit? -A tangarine! -I love it!!! I want some!!!  -My favourite fruit is the pineapple!! Can we eat it? -Ok. Have you all tasted it sometime? -Yes!! It's very good!! I like it a lot! -Can we taste the mango?
-Yes of course! What colour do you think is the inside? -Red! Is it sweet?? -Let's check it!  We took the guava.
-What is this?
A Guava!!
-What color do you think is it inside?
-Green! No, It’s yellow!
-Shall we open it?
-Yes!! Can we taste it??
-Of course! Do you think it is sweet or acid?
-I don’t know! Mmm it’s like a tomatoe!!!
Let's try the passion fruit? I think it is red inside! We passed the fruit, we smelled and touched it! When we opened it we had a big surprise! It is very strange!!  And the banana!!! We all know the banana and we love it!!
 A person from Africa came to our class!!   
Then we went to the English class and look what we found!!!  We played with the animal and fruits' names!! We had loads of fun! What is this? This is an antelope! What is that? That is a guava!  We asked Carme Bohera to help us drawing Handa on a big paper.
We discovered that Handa lives in Africa!
Africa is a continent.
Handa lives in Kenya
   
     World map    
·        KENYA
In Africa the houses are made of mud and Straw.
 There are a lot of flies. 
We draw Handa’s village!!
Now we know where does Handa live and how is it like.
In the book there are a lot of animals. Do you want to meet them?
GIRAFFE                         ZEBRA                             OSTRICH                         MONKEY
ELEPHANT                      ANTELOPE                      PARROT                           GOAT
Last week we had our first English class. The first thing we did was to change the names of our groups. Do you want to know the new names??  
We are  fishes and wolves!!!!
Today we had the second class and we read the book: Handa's surprise!!! It's a lovely story. 
Handa is a little girl who decides to visit her friend Akeyo, and bring her a basket of delicious fruit. As she walks along the dusty road, she wonders which fruit will be Akeyo’s favourite. On her way, some cheeky animals spy fruit in the basket and find different ways to take it! There’s a lovely surprise at the end that will delight children for many years. The story has appeal for younger children as they watch the way the animals find their favorite fruit. Older children enjoy the expressive language such as the sweet smelling guava and the creamy green avocado and the surprise ending!
After that we´ve introduced  Handa's different characters using masks. There's a theatre in the English class so we put the mask and we said: 
-Hello! I am an Antelope!
WELCOME BACK PICOTS!!!
Today we had our first 2013-2014 English class!!!!!! We played with puppets, we sang a song and we chose our group names. We are Fishes and Wolves!!!
  TEDDY BEAR IS COLD!!!!   ARE YOU COLD TOO?   ATISHOO!!!  BLOW YOUR NOSE!!!! 
 GOOD MORNING SUNS AND HORSES TEDDY BEAR AND HIS FRIEND ARE WAITING FOR YOU NEXT FRIDAY  !!!
