During the school year 2018-19 we celebrate the 10th edition of our English Day.

To remember all these years we've dived into the blog (which is, by the way, 11 this year...) and we've arranged the labels for you to have easy access to the posts of every year.

Here's a list of the topic and main song of every edition, along with the songs the kids learned every year and the main activities we did.


School Year 2009-2010 ENGLISH SPEAKING COUNTRIES - Dance: Do Re Mi
