  25. 25. 4. ReflectionsThe result of the lesson plan Top 5 dinosaurwas not as I thought previously. I thinkthat the first difficulty is that I have beentoo many time without teaching English.The second one is that the children arenot my pupils, I do not know their EnglishknowledgeDinosaurs: The top 5
  26. 26. Dinosaurs: The top 5(although their English teacher, my colleague inthe school, told me about them and that theyhave not been exposed to English a lot).Moreover, they had not tools to understand myEnglish explanations, so I had to translate toomany times.I think that it was a very easy activity, but it tookme more than one hour. Luckily, the otherteacher did not mind to borrow me someminutes from her classroom time.
  27. 27. Dinosaurs: The top 5Fortunately, and for me, the most important pointof view of the activity, it was a success for thechildren, they liked a lot, from the beginning theywere very enthusiastic, of course, they liked thetopic dinosaurs and they enjoyed a lotdiscovering some of them in the Natural historymuseum web page, and even more when Iasked them to invent their own dinosaur from thedifferent parts of the top 5 dinosaurs.
  28. 28. Dinosaurs: The top 5They asked me to repeat the classroom, they triedto speak in English, although they said to mefew words, and I realised that they had gotseveral problems to pronounce and even to saythe sentences aloud, they became shy becausethey recognized their language problems inorder to produce what they wanted or they couldin Spanish or Catalan.
  29. 29. Dinosaurs: The top 5To sum up, I think that the situation was not usual,for them and for me. So in another contextperhaps the lesson plan could go better.However, I have enjoyed a lot, I have learnedand I have realised that I need to teach Englishagain.
