Student Gallery

  I have added a new page added to the englishpool website, it is intended to be a gallery of students written/presentation work.

  The first images are from work completed just before the Spring break by our Elementary A students, featuring their favourite animals.

  I was so proud of what they achieved that I wanted to share it. Great work children!

  You can take a look by clicking here.

What's Tomica in English?

 I was asked a few weeks ago by a mother and son, who are relocating to the UK soon, "What's Tomica in English?"

 As someone who grew up in the 1970s my first thought was Matchbox cars..we call them Matchbox cars...but hang on didn't they change to Corgi during my childhood...and then again are Corgi cars still in production?

 Seems the best answer I could finally come up with was "Toy cars, we call them toy cars."

 For those who don't know Tomica here's a link to their English site, www.takaratomy.co.jp/english/products/tomica/index.html
