Game Review

Thank you for playing the games guys. Hope you learnt something from them. Here are some of your reviews.

Extra Job - Commentary on games

The game that I like more is “Stop Disasters” because I think it’s more interesting and more educational. “WaterBusters” is cute and I enjoyed him a lot but I lost in second level. I don’t like the game “The Laser Challenge” because the questions are boring, but I learned a lot with him. The game that took the load was more it’s “WaterBusters” and the faster is “Stop Disasters”. The game that has better graphics is "Stop Disasters" but I like the graphics of "WaterBusters" too. I liked to play.


My favourite game is “Stop Disasters” because we learn a lot with it, it’s educational and it’s the most interesting of all! It doesn’t take very time to load the game, the graphics are very good and it’s very easy to play! I don’t like “The laser challenge” because it’s no funny and it’s a little bit boring! The game “Water Busters” it’s a good too because it’s educational and it helps the people that spends too many water!You can play " Stop Disasters" in this site:

The Laser Challenge

I picked The Game The Laser Challenge because it was what I found most interesting, the questions about lasers are minimally accessible and can learn certain things about this subject. This game play is a play we know we need to get things and get points in this case we still have to answer questions about the laser. The Game does not take long to load, the graphics are acceptable.


WaterBusters was my favorite game because it addresses a very important aspect, ''save water".It's easy to game, because it has a good image resolution, game's idea is objective (find solutions for water problems). Auxiliary Buttons are there for help (subtitles, balloons of explanation which tell us what we may do and suggests good alternatives).I choose this game mainly because I took it was simple and others, while also forward important ideas, were more complex.

Photo Challenge

Great photos guys! Keep that creativity going. Remember that we now have the photo of the month competition.
Below you'll find some examples of the photos my students took.

Plinky's prompts

The majority of you responded quite well to plinky's prompts. We will definitely be using plinky again! Some of you still make spelling mistakes that could be easily avoided if you proofread your texts. However, generally speaking I am satisfied with your work. So, here are the best plinky answers. Well done guys!

Recommend a movie for a friend stuck on the couch with a cold.

The city of New York expected a major storm all ends with a big flood and the beginning of a new ice age.

This movie is perfect for convalescing people because it's very interesting and beautiful.

Joana`s page

Mostly because it's a happy film. Personally I love this movie because of the music and the singers. Also because it speaks of a group of young people entering the world of music. I like the Jonas Brothers and the clothes that they wear in the film.

My favourite movie!

My favourite movie!

I really liked this movie because it's cool, and portraits a rebel girl. In the end the movie has a moral lesson- you mustn't give up on your dreams!

plinky's prompts

Well, this book was and is significant for me, because it shows me that love isn't only roses without the thorns and sometimes people like me and kelly Ann (a character) are in love with... well, wonderfull guys, but externally, because inside themselves, they just are completely selfish, self-centered, gross and more bad things...

A day without cell phone"

Have you gone a day without your cell phone?

Being without my phone is horrible! I am very dependent on my phone, because i need to do something all the time, and when i'm not in classes (or doing something) I like to talk with somebody (by sms or calling).

If I could tame a wild animal

I choose an otter because an animal is very funny, fun and sweet, with their acrobatic at sea. In the midst of so many stunts and tricks, the otters can fun me. I would like to have it at home for me to amuse me to see them and receive all their sweetness.

Role-Play: At the Restaurant

In order to give my students a chance to practice what they had learnt I asked them to create a short role-play where one of them would be the waiter and the rest customers. They made me very proud, because they really got involved in creating the set and even brought all the crops themselves. Well done guys!
Below you will find a video player with all of their role-plays. Check them out.
