Yesterday we had a wonderful afternoon playing volleyball at the beach!

First we had a quick game of South America VS Japan, with Japan having a small advantage with 7 extra players!

The students then split into three teams of 5, taking turns to play against eachother.

Keeping themselves entertained whilst waiting for their next turn!

After an hour of playing there was time for a us to quickly dip our feet in the ocean to cool off before heading back to school!

Coffee Club! 19 June

Yesterday at Coffee Club we played Heads Up!

Heads Up is a great app you can download on your phone, where you have to guess the word showing on the screen (which you hold up to your forehead) from clues being given to you!

There’s lots of different categories, including accents, animals, act it out (where you can’t speak!) and just for kids (which was our favourite)!

We had lots of fun working as a team to describe and act out the words to eachother!

Coffee Club! 15 May

It’s so lovely to be back at Lexis Byron after a little trip back to the UK! I feel extremely lucky to have a job that I can look forward to coming back to, this is all thanks to the wonderful staff and students I get to spend my days with 🙂

Today at Coffee Club Judit, one of our Spanish students, shared two games with us.

I won’t go into details as it involves everyone having to work something out, and we can hopefully play it again one day with some new students! Let’s just say lots of fun was had, especially when most of the group had figured out the pattern!!

Join me next week for more games, coffee and Tim Tams!!

Coffee Club! 5 December

Today at Coffee Club we enjoyed a few rounds of Scattergories with our coffees and Tim Tams!!

For those who aren’t familiar with Scattergories; it’s a fun game to play when you only have a few minutes to spare, but also a game you can play for hours!

You pick different categories and then take it in turns to say a letter (do the alphabet in your head until someone shouts stop). Everyone then has to list something beginning with that letter for each of the categories! The time is up when the first person shouts out that they have a word for each and you then score 10 points if you are the only person with that word, or 5 if someone has the same word!

There were some questionable answers and a heated debate on whether mushrooms were a vegetable, but everyone scored a 10 out of 10 for effort 🙂
