Día del Maestro en Tailandia: Wai Kru or Teacher's Day in Thailand

Published Thursday, September 19, 2013.
Last updated: Thursday, September 19, 2013

   At the beginning of every school year in Thailand (Tailandia), (usually in October (Octubre) but some schools do this in January (enero) or even June (junio)), every Thai student (alumno) participates in Wai Kru Day or Teacher's Day(Día del Maestro). Even though each school (escuela/colegio/instituto) holds Wai Kru Day in different months, one thing is consistent - Wai Kru Day is always held on a Thursday (Jueves), as this is thought to be anauspicious day (día de suerte) by Thai Buddhists. Wai Kru Day (El Día del Maestro) is the day of the year when Thai students (alumnos/estudiantes) show the most respect (respeto) to their teachers (maestros/profesores) by participating in a big school ceremony. At this time, they thank their teachers for the knowledge they have given them, for the gift of learning, and also wish them good luck (buena suerte) in the future school year and in their future lives. On Wai Kru Day in Thailand, students come to school with flowers (flores) and cards (tarjetas) for their teachers (maestros y profesores).  They usually use traditional Thai flowers and plants, banana leaves and incense in the larger arrangements, all of which have different meanings (for example, patience (paciencia),respect (respeto) and discipline (disciplina)). These are given to the teachers at an elaborate ceremony during which time every child at the school is expected to wai their teachers (hold their hands in the prayer position) and pay them respect. 

 

So, if you see your teachers today and you want to practise your Spanish tell them

    ¡FELIZ DÍA DEL MAESTRO!   ¡FELIZ DÍA DEL PROFESOR!

¡GRACIAS POR ENSEÑARNOS!

 En Argentina, el Día del Maestro se celebra (is celebrated) el 11 de setiembre. ¿Cuándo se celebra el Día del Maestro en tu país?

  Can you find out and write the date in a comment?              ¡GRACIAS! ¡HASTA PRONTO!

ROALD DAHL Y SUS LIBROS

Published Saturday, September 14, 2013.
Last updated: Saturday, September 14, 2013

¡HOLA CHICOS! ¿Cómo están?

 The official Roald Dahl Day takes place every year on 13 September, on the birthday of the World's No. 1 Storyteller. In 2013, Roald Dahl Day coincides with Friday 13th - the perfect excuse for even more mischief than usual. 

        On this special day, in Y6 we talked about Roald Dahl's life and his success as a writer.  We came up with a long list of books he has written for children and adults.  (libros para niños y adultos) 

         Do you remember any interesting facts about his life and his books?  If you would like to test yourself, try this Quiz.TEST DE CONOCIMIENTO GENERAL.

                     Invite your friends and family to participate as well!

 (Unfortunately, I don't know why I can't upload the game for you. I will need some help from the IT teachers on Monday. In the meantime, go to the Spanish blog in Y4 and play that version of the quiz... You will have an updated version coming soon!)

            http://www.patana.ac.th/BPSnet/blog/index.asp?id=365

 

                              What score did you get? Let me know!

  I also read the official website to learn more about his life and his books.

  I found out the answers to ALL the questions we wanted to know! Where was he actually born?  Why did he decide to become a writer? Who inspired him to write his stories?  Did he really work in a chocolate factory? Visit the official website: 

                  www.roalddahl.com and write a comment about what you have learnt!

¡Adiós! ¡Hasta el martes!
