1st Rocio del Mar Rodriguez Ferreira - 5ºB (Salesianos Estrecho)

Place

Hello, I'm Rocio del mar, and I'm going to tell you what I would do in my free time if I had enough money. What I would do is go visit my entire family in Santo Domingo, take a trip to the places I have always wanted to go and take my family wherever they want. Then I would go out to eat at restaurants I've never been to and buy clothes that I really need. I would go shopping at the mall with my friends and have sleepovers at home if my parents let me. I would also send money to my grandmother in Santo Domingo so she could buy a house (even though she already lives in one) and my mother would also be very excited to have a house in Santo Domingo, so I would also give her money to buy one. Or renovate a house. And I would also invite all my family from Madrid to eat at my house what they wanted And the money I have left over I would spend at school to study the dining room... and also in food and drink for my house because all that food and water is very necessary.

2nd María José Valencia Arias - 6A (San Juan Bautista Salesianos Estrecho)

Place

Hello, my name is María José Valencia, and I’m 12 years old. I think that not working and having money is very fun because you can do all the things you want without having to worry about the things at work, but at the same time I think it would be a lot of free time and I would get bored, but if I had to say what would I do in all that spare time would be to go shopping every day with my friends, watch a lot of movies and series with my mother every night, read all the books in the world and discover a wonder in each of them, go to concerts of super singers, go to the cinema and being happy in each of those wonderful and magical adventures that I would live, and this is what I would like to do if that possibility existed, which is almost impossible, and I say almost because nothing is impossible, for no one it would also be incredible that I could be done by that everyone could do what they want at any time they want. Well, this is my opinion about this theme. Thank you, bye.

Place

It is a difficult question, but I would give flowers to my mother, because she is the one who has always taken care of me and helped me, without a doubt I would give them to her, she really likes flowers and plants. She would give him a whole bouquet of many types of flowers, roses, tulips, daisies, lilies... of a lot of types but without a doubt it would be to thank for everything she has done to support me, take care of me, teach me... She is as beautiful as a calla lily and her skin is as soft as a Jasmine. And her smell is like a sea alder, my sisters and I love her a lot I would also give them to my grandmother because she is very kind and always helps me, I love her a lot, she always helps those in need, she takes great care of people, and she has a lot of flowers in her room, she loves them, and I think she will like them more If they are given as gifts, I would give her some calla lily and tulip flowers, and she deserves them very much, and I would love to give them to her.

1st Amaia Raziela Magno Abangan - 5ºB (San Juan Bautista Salesianos Estrecho)

Place

For me, spring is the transition season between winter and summer during which we see days getting longer, temperatures warming and plants blooming in time for summer. When it’s spring, I think of bunnies, flowers, the sun, chocolates, eggs, and more!! In spring, I normally do: Easter egg hunts, go out for a picnic with my family, paint eggs, eat chocolate and so much more! I love spring, it’s a beautiful season between winter and summer and the weather starts to get warmer. The most common thing I do is go to church, because Jesus was then resurrected and came back to life on Easter Sunday. This significant event, historically attested to outside the church by many, is still having a great impact on our world. It is this which gives Christians their hope. My favourite Easter candies are:Peeps, chocolate bunnies, chocolate eggs, marshmallows, Reese's pieces peanut butter eggs and much more!!!! I love spring because snow begins to melt (but there’s no snow in Madrid)in other countries, swelling streams with run-off and any frosts become less severe. In climates that have no snow, and rare frosts, air and ground temperatures increase more rapidly. I don’t really like spring because now there are a lot of bugs!!

2nd David Robles Díaz - 4ºC grade (Salesianos Estrecho)

Place

What is spring? For the people who like sports is the moment to play other sports. In winter with the cold we practice skiing and ice skating, but now in spring when the days are longer and the weather is warmer, we can enjoy riding a bicycle, climbing and hiking in the mountains. And also when you are walking in the mountains, thanks to the fact that in spring there are many flowers, we can found them easily, and they are very beautiful we can take flowers and leaves to collect them, to dry the plants put into a book for two or three weeks, and then you can put it in your notebook, and you can also use them in your natural science notebook for decorate it more. In conclusion, spring is a good moment to go outside and, especially for people, like me, who love sports, it is the perfect moment to enjoy nature and the sun. And for you, why do you like spring?

1st David Robles Díaz - 4th grade Primary Education (San Juan Bautista Salesianos Estrecho)

Place

What is love? Can we touch it, eat it, see it...? Never before I ask me what is love, did you ask it before? I listened a lot of songs, stories and movies about love, but I never thought before what is love for me. There are a lot of kinds of love. It is not the same love towards things and love with people. It is not the same if you lose a toy or if you lose a person of the family. Furthermore, it is not the same love towards your parents and towards your uncles and aunts. Love for me is: The hugs of my dad, The kisses of my mum, playing with a friend, playing with my toys, playing with a pet... That and more things is love for me. And for you? What is love? With whom do you share love with? And what means love for you?

2nd Patricia Serranos Cayo - 4th grade Primary Education (San Juan Bautista Salesianos Estrecho)

Place

Love for me is a feeling, it is the strongest of the feelings. Love is the engine to live in harmony, peace and happiness. All humans must have more love to their family, to their friends, their pets and the entire universe. However, many times humans do not think about others, we live in selfishness and do not create love. I have love towards my mum, my dad, my brothers, my sister and my family because they also give me a lot of love, attention, dear and the most important thing, they are always by my side taking care of me, pandering me and also helping me to grow like a good person. Love is the grounding of everything as well, when we give love towards others without waiting nothing in return. Children must live with love, to be able to form a great universe with happy, cheerful, healthy and respectful children.
