100 word challenge!

This week’s offering is from Yoan;

It was in 2010, Mrs Harris was playing soft ball with Mr Vescovi. He ate a sandwich with some pepper and cheese. Mrs Harris was very hungry and Mr Vescovi won’t share his Sandwich. But Mr Vescovi remembered he forgot his mobile phone,so he returned home and came back to the soft ball arena. Suddenly a BIG crocodile jumped out and ate the orange bag of Mr Vescovi… He was sad because this bag was his favorite object!

Mrs Harris was verry happy to see Mr Vescovi sad ( 🙂 ), But while Mr Vescovi was crying Mrs.Harris threw a ball at Mr.Vescovi.

5ème  have a test Tuesday and will revise the present,

4ème also have a test on Tuesday (aren’t I mean?!) and will look at how to describe people,

3ème have a test, on Friday this time and will practise their classroom English – that’ll help with No French Fridays!

AEP Tuesday – I can’t wait to see the animals you have created, and if we have time we’ll populate our islands too.

Remember to revise regularly, don’t wait until you have a test, and ask me if you have any questions

Have a FAB week!


100 Word Challenge – back again!

I know you missed it during the holidays, here is our contribution for this week, written by TRISTAN, in 4ème:

After two months on vacation  I went to Malta to learn  English for 3 weeks but I speak  Italian too.
After Malta I went to my home for just 2 weeks and celebrated my birthday. 
After these two weeks I went to visit my grand-parents in France in Vendee.
My cousin joined me in my grand-parents’ for just 3 days. 1 day after I fought with my brother and I broke my arm, I slept 2 nights in the hospital before coming home. My family returned to Switzerland
as I had to start school. And I missed you so much that finally we can make start in your lessons.

Here’s Helen’s writing for this week’s prompt – which is the pictue below:

This was my first lesson of “monster hunting” and my assignment was to catch a giant bumblebee that had been terrifying the neighbourhood for several weeks. My friend Bill and I searched the whole town for hours, when we suddenly heard a weird and loud noise behind us. We turned around and saw a huge UFO crashing. We came closer and realised that it was our monster already dead. That is when Bill got the bright idea to stage a fight with the bee. He took a picture of me striking down the disgusting bumblebee and posted it on instagram.
