Buenos días,

Hoy nos hemos levantado y la casa está muy rara tan vacía y sin la presencia de vuestros hijos. Ha sido un turno fantástico y lo hemos  disfrutado casi tanto o incluso más que los niños. Esperamos que ellos lo hayan pasado tan bien como nosotros.

Una vez más empieza la cuenta atrás y queda otro año para que llegue el verano y con él, el regreso a Prades, al 5P, donde siempre podréis volver y disfrutar de su magia. Portaos bien, sed buenos durante el curso, estudiad… pero sobre todo, no os olvidéis de los momentos tan especiales que hemos pasado juntos, disfrutad de cada minuto y recordadlo . Y como decía el poema que os leímos ayer las monitoras: los amigos, incluso en la distancia, siguen allí mientras tengamos los pedacitos de los  momentos que hemos vivido con ellos, en nuestra memoria y en nuestro corazón.

Esperamos poder vivir millones más de pedacitos con vosotros el año que viene.

Be happy, we’ll always be here for you!

El equipo del 5P 2013 de Prades.

Good morning everyone!

We were very busy yesterday here in our English summer camps. Yesterday it was our last full day at the camp, and we wanted to say goodbye to everyone and make the most of it. We woke up and had breakfast and then went to our last morning lesson this term. Once it was over and since it was kind of rainy and not very warm, instead of going to the swimming pool we rehearsed some of the dances we have been doing during the term and then we played “Don’t panic”, a very fun game the children love.

Después llegó la hora de comer y bajamos todos al comedor y cuando acabaron fueron a clase de nuevo para hacer el último examen del turno. Una vez acabaron los exámenes, les dejamos los móviles y mientras sacamos juegos y montamos un circuito de karts por toda la casa. Como se lo estaban pasando tan bien, subimos la merienda a la zona de recepción para que siguieran jugando y no tuvieran que parar :)

When snack time finished, we all went to the basketball court so we could see a show the MPs had prepared for us and it was very funny, no one could stop laughing. Then we played games at the sports fields and later on we had showers. While all these things were going on, the children kept writing love letters to their friends, teachers and monitors to say goodbye.

Cuando acabamos de cenar, nos reunimos todos en el hall para iniciar la fiesta de despedida del turno, los teachers empezaron con unas palabras de despedida de cada clase y con un poema que compusieron y dice así:

It’s time to say goodbye,

our term has come to an end.

We’ve made a lot of memories

and many more new friends.

We’ve watched you learn and grow

and have fun every day.

We hope things we’ve done

have helped you in some way.

So it’s with happy memories

we wave goodbye to you

with hope and expectations

for another summer with you.

After them it was monitors turn, we had different shows: a song sang by the boys with a guitar, then girls made a play about what we were taking with us after these 2 weeks : emotions, feelings, respect, fun, new friends, memories…and also they read a text called “Pieces” about friendship and every child was given a piece of it.  After that there was a video of best moments of the term. It was all very emotional!

There was lots of crying, we were very sad it was all coming to an end, because we have been having so much fun we don’t want it to be over and wait for a whole year until we can come back again. The directors, to cheer us up, made a funny dance to say goodbye and we all ended up laughing.

We finished the night by having some crisps and drinks and then dancing a bit so we calmed down and enjoyed the party before going to bed in Prades for the last time this summer.

This morning we woke up and packed everything so we are ready for you when you come to pick up your children this afternoon. It was sad to leave the rooms all empty and quiet.

Also it was Joan’s birthday so we gave him a little surprise during breakfast time and he really liked it. When we finished breakfast we took our suitcases to the Disco, and organized them by bedrooms so you can easily find them this afternoon. Also we gave the children all the letters they have been writing to each other these days.We took this special picture for Laia Valls who left las Sunday.

Now the children are with the teachers, saying goodbye to each other and rehearsing the song of the term ” Paradise”. After that we’ll spend time all together and rehearse the ceremony for this afternoon so we can make the most of the last hours we have left here in Prades in this 5P 2013. Then we’ll go have lunch and get ready for your arrival this afternoon.

Remember to be here at 17ish to get the suitcases before the ceremony starts ( at 18), we will be waiting for you with open arms while watching the term video.

See you this afternoon!!

Good morning!

Ayer tuvimos un día y sobre todo una noche movidita, porque era Halloween en nuestros campamentos de verano. We started  the day in a different way: we had breakfast in bed.

Our monitors brought breakfast to the children in their bedrooms. When breakfast was finished, we tidied up the bedrooms and went to class for 2 hours. Then we went to the swimming pool where some of the children kept writing love letters for Friends’ night, and also playing and dancing…Afterwards we had lunch and then class again.

Cuando acabaron las clases, los niños tuvieron sus móviles un rato y después fueron a merendar para coger fuerzas para jugar los Olympics. Ayer jugaron a football, basketball and handball. Todos se esforzaron mucho en los partidos ya que son los últimos días y los útimos puntos para los equipos.

When Olympics were over it was shower time. You could feel the excitement as party time was a aproaching…We had zombies already at dinner time and some of the children also painted their faces in a zombie-like way. When the time arrived, we made groups in front of reception to get into “the house of horrors”…The ones who didn’t want to enter could  go directly to our Halloween disco. The tour was done so well that many of them wanted to go in again and again. Then when that was over, we all finished the party dancing inside the disco and had lots of fun!

We went to bed tired but happy and ready to get a good rest so we can enjoy our last day of 5P 2013.

Hello families!!!

El día de ayer en nuestros campamentos de verano fue muy pero que muy intenso ya que todos estaban deseando que llegara la fiesta de la noche: Oscars’ night!

We woke up and it was “Reverse breakfast”, we were all wearing our clothes backwards and it was really funny!

After that, once we were wearing our clothes the right way round, we went to class and then to the swimming pool. There, some of the children were writting love letters for friends’ night, and the rest of them were just playing different games like chess, cards…and of course dancing around the swimming pool the way they love it. Then all of us had lunch and went to class again.

Once class was over, it was snack time and right after that we had clubs: karts, horse riding, night-line and dancing for the children to learn all the dances we do every day in the camp. Since yesterday was a special night we finished earlier so everyone could have more time to get ready for dinner. Todo el mundo se puso muy guapo; cuando acabamos de arreglarnos nos reunimos delante de las gradas y fuimos entrando al comedor por parejas y nos hicimos la foto oficial en la alfombra roja. Después del brindis inicial para inaugurar la gala, nos sirvieron una deliciosa cena con un helado de postre que estaba riquísimo.

After dinner, we had a couple of shows before the ceremony started. First it was Pau, he performed another magic show and then our teachers sang a couple of songs, one of them was the song of the term, so the children could sing with them. We gave so many Oscars!Everybody was nominated for different awards and there were lots of winners. Also, right after that, the older kids of the term gave oscars to monitors and teachers too, it was lovely! When the ceremony was finished everyone went to bed really happy after the fantastic evening they had.

We have posted all the pictures on Flickr for you to see them. Enjoy it!

Bye bye!

Hello everyone!

We had a lovely day yesterday in our English summer camps! We woke up, had breakfast and then class, after of course, had tidied up the bedrooms. It´s the second week so some of the children have changed  of level after the exam. After class we went to the swimming-pool and even if it was kind of cloudy we played a lot of games and danced a lot.When swimming pool time was over we had lunch and went to the two last hours of class.

Por la tarde los niños tuvieron los móviles y llamaron a casa para contar la experiencia del intenso fin de semana. Luego merendaron y en vez de Olympics habituales volvimos a jugar a diferentes juegos que los niños disfrutaron un montón.

After shower time and dinner it was time for our party: James Bond Disco, a party organized by our teachers. Apparently some terrorists wanted to put a bomb in Prades to kill our fun  so the children helped James Bond to find the code to desactivate it and stop the evil plan. They got the numbers for the code through a dance contest; they would get a number every time they won. Finally they managed to stop it and then everyone celebrate with a celebratory disco.

Después de tanto bailoteo nos metimos en la cama a reponer fuerzas!

You can still check flickr for more pictures.

Hello families!

We have been missing for a while but it is just because we had an amazing weekend and we didn’t have time to keep you posted, but here we go. El sábado nos fuimos algunos a Port Aventura, otros a Costa Caribe y algunos se quedaron en la casa. Fue un día muy intenso, no paramos de montarnos en atracciones y disfrutamos de cada momento. Por la tarde después de tanta emoción hicimos una merienda-cena al salir del parque en los jardines de fuera, tras lo cual nos dirigimos de vuelta a la casa. Al llegar los que estaban más agotados se fueron directos a la cama y los que quisieron comer algo más cenaron leche con galletas y magdalenas y después a dormir.

The children who stayed in Prades also had lots of fun, they were playing with Karts, had a paintball war, watched a film…Also they had lunch outside while dancing, they really enjoyed it!

On Sunday we got up and went to Prades where our MP Pau performed a magic show, we were impressed! Después de esta gran actuación tomamos el aperitivo en la plaza del pueblo, y justo empezó a tocar la orquesta y los niños estuvieron bailando sardanas con la gente del pueblo. Fue muy bonito y todos disfrutaron un montón.We got back to the house and had a swimming-pool “express” just before lunch. After lunch we had time to prepare and rehearse the shows we were going to do at night.

Por la tarde hicimos Athletics, y los niños pasaron por las diferentes pruebas y después merendaron todos juntos en el campo de basket. Luego se ducharon y fueron a misa los que tenían que ir y el resto se quedó ensayando la actuación de la noche para que saliera perfecta. Llegó la hora de cenar y con ella los nervios, los niños se caracterizaron y fueron al teatro donde cada grupo fue presentando su actuación. Una vez pasaron todos los grupos, cada uno eligió a la actuación que consideraron la mejor y eligieron un representante para comunicar su decisión. Tuvimos un empate y trás una dura deliberación, se  proclamaron ganadoras las niñas de Gemma, por su espectacular baile cowboy. Congratulations!!

We all went to bed exhausted after such a weekend full of adventures and good moments, it was just unforgetable!

Keep checking our pictures in Flikr

Bye bye! :)

Hola a todos!

Ayer no actualizamos el blog pero volvemos a la carga para poneros al día. On Friday we had a very nice day, fuimos a clase por la mañana y por la tarde después de la pisci, hicimos el examen de inglés. In the afternoon, after snack time  instead of playing the usual sports, we played different games and the children loved it. It was really fun!

Por la noche, una vez nos duchamos y nos caracterizamos para la fiesta fuimos al jardín a ver la actuación de nuestros monitores y teachers, trás la cual cenamos fuera por turnos hamburguesas y hot dogs, muy muy rico! Once we had dinner there were games and the chilren could play wherever they wanted and also dance on a stage. Cuando los juegos acabaron, hubo un concurso de baile  y trás la difícil decisión se entregaron los premios: Anna Bronchal y Pedro Benlloch en la categoría Senior y Laura Pérez y Carlos Soria en la categoría Junior. También hubo un premio a la mejor caracterización y lo ganaron Lara Pavia y Robert Altisen.

Finally the children rock’n rolled their way to bed, very excited about Port Aventura the following day!

Hello families!!

Yesterday we started the day in our summer camps in a different way, we had pijama´s disco!! We woke up and went straight to the disco to dance every song we knew! Después de tanto baile nos fuimos a desayunar y a clase, no sin antes cantar el cumpleaños feliz a Héctor León que cumplía 11 añazos!

After class we went to the swimmming pool where we danced again a lot and played lots of differents games. Luego nos fuimos a comer  y a clase, y una vez merendamos fuimos a jugar los Olympics, todos muy motivados para conseguir puntos para los equipos. Cuando acabamos los partidos fuimos a las duchas y a cenar y nos preparamos para la fiesta de la noche: Dragon Ball Z.

Nos reunimos todos delante de la casa para esperar la llegada de nuestros personajes, y tras una pequeña actuación nos explicaron que necesitaban nuestra ayuda para conseguir las bolas de dragón para resucitar a Krilin. So children organized by teams went to do different games to get the map and find a dragon ball each. Cuando consiguieron reunir todas las bolas invocamos al dragón y conseguimos salvar a Krilin, menos mal! We finished our party by dancing all together our favourite song: Palance. And finally we went to bed all exhausted after such an exciting day!

Esta mañana nos hemos levantado ya con nervios porque mañana ya se acerca el gran día: Port Aventura!!

Estamos subiendo todas las fotos al flikr para que podáis verlas.

Have a nice day! :)

Hello everyone!

We had so much fun yesterday! We got up here  to a sunny day in our English camp in Prades y empezamos el día haciendo froggy games y después desayunamos para coger energía para ir a clase, y cuando acabó fuimos a la piscina como cada día . Ayer hicimos la competición de natación por equipos y al final nadamos niños contra monitores y los  niños nos ganaron. Son unos campeones! Also we had an aquagym class given by some of our monitors to introduce the party of the night : Zumba disco!!

Then we had lunch. class and snack and we did Olympics in the afternoon. A medida que se acercaba la noche nos ibamos poniendo nerviosos por ver los bailes que se habían preparado y cómo estaba la disco. We got there and  there was a dancing contest between girl monitors, boy monitors and teachers. The children voted and the boy monitors won! El baile fue muy divertido, lo podréis ver en el flikr ya que lo hemos colgado junto con las fotos. Los niños se aprendieron los bailes que hicimos y después bailaron sin parar hasta la hora de ir a dormir. Fun fun fun!

We´ll keep you posted!

Good morning!!!

Ayer tuvimos un día estupendo en los campamentos de inglés de Prades. Por la mañana nos despertaron con las cámaras pues era el día en que venía nuestro cámara a grabarnos. We played froggy games in the morning before breakfast and had a lot of fun! En el desayuno sorprendimos a Lluis Seres cantandole el cumpleaños feliz en el desayuno. What a surprise he got with the card and the sweets!!

After that we went to class and then to the swimming pool where we took team photos and then we played and danced!! Después comimos y fuimos a clase de nuevo. Y cuando acabaron  las clases nos hicimos más fotos por grupos de monitores y la de todo el turno y luego…a merendar!!!

Once we had a snack we had clubs in the afternoon instead of Olympics. Jugamos en el night-line, a pichi con los karts, nos enseñaron a usar los heelys y  algunos conseguimos patinar; y también fuimos a caballos. It was a fun afternoon!!

Por la noche, después de la ducha y la cena nos preparamos para la gran fiesta: The Polynesian Party. Nuestros monitores y teachers prepararon una actuación: Unos surferos llegan a una isla desierta con sus tablas y deciden quedarse a pasar la noche y se encuentran con que ya está habitada por una tribu que tiene como mascota a un mono gigante. How scary!! At the beginning they had a lot of  problems understanding each other but finally they became friends and taught each other different dances. Acabamos la bailando todos los bailes que nos habían enseñado y haciendo diferentes juegos. Para finalizar la noche bailamos Booma booma yee todos juntos en medio del decorado. It was awesome!!!

Podéis ver más fotos del día de ayer en el flikr. Hasta mañana papis!!
