This blog has been designed to provide information about the activities held at the social studies bilingual sections in CPI Tino Grandío (Guntín,Spain). The English language and Social Studies teachers have elaborated most of the resources you can see but our "auxiliares de conversa" also have their own page and posts. Therefore everyone is invited to have a look .

Christmas celebrations

Christmas time is here but it is different in other countries. English-speaking countries do celebrate the most important dates in the same way we do:
  • 24th December - Christmas Eve
  • 25th December - Christmas Day - families usually meet for dinner.
  • 26th December - Boxing Day - it is celebrated in Britain. Children sing carols and ask for money from their neighbours.
  • 31th December - New Year's Eve - People have dinner and attend parties with family and friends. Singing Auld Lang Syne and kissing at midnight is a tradition.
  • 1st December - New Year's Day
