  • If I were a rich woman, I would travel around the world. I think it is very unlikely that I will be rich. However, in this unlikely condition, I will travel around the world.
  • If I weren't / wasn't watching TV now, I would be playing tennis. I am watching TV, but I am imagining an alternative activity I would be doing if I wasn't watching TV
  • If you had a bigger dog, your house would be protected. You don't have a big dog, but I am imagining how protected you would be if you had one.
  • If I were an alien, I would be able to travel around the universe. It is impossible for me to be an alien. However, I am imagining what I would do in this situation.
  • We would go to Paris this summer if we passed all our subjects. That is our plan but, unfortunatelly,  we know we are not going to pass all our subjects.

My favourite place

This term we are going to start a project about our favourite places. You will have to follow the instructions:

  1. First, download the template we will use.
  2. Then, fill it in with information about your favourite place near your village. It is recommended that you choose a natural or traditional place (not a cinema or shopping centre).
  3. Try to provide as much detail as possible.
  4. You should take some pictures and bring them to school in a pendrive or through mail or a cloud server (Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive...) to illustrate your work.  Even though it is not indispensable your work will look a lot more professional.
  5. You will have to show and explain your work to the rest of the class and get a mark for both the presentation and how you have explained it.
  6. The final works will be shown in the blog, printed and sent to the Natural Science Department to be part of Proxecto Terra.
