VMM Tremañes team

Today we present  the VMM project team in the College Tremañes (Gijón, Asturias, Spanish State).

The main protagonist is our monster-pet: Lion. But you already  know this character.

With our monster, there are 64 people working in this project which we introduce you now. The most important are our 55 preschool children: 19 three-year-old children, 19 four-year-old children and 17 five-year-old children.They are great!

There are also nine teachers from school involved in the project: 4 Childhood Education teachers, one English teacher, one Music teacher, the Headmaster, the Director of Studies and the  Registrar of the College. They are also normal people, the only monster we have in Tremañes is Lion 🙂

Our school has been participating  eight years  in European school collaboration projects. This year we have a very important  reason to be happy: we share with you a wonderful project. Monsters are  great friends!

We show you now some materials about the place where we live:

Happy New Year

Jacob is the little monster Portuguese.
Lives at the bottom of the river, has two eyes, two claws like pincers. It has the power of water.
Do not like pollution.
But like affection in hairs that seem chips.

LION, THE TREMAÑES MONSTER

Lion mascot is the monster they created for children aged 3, 4 and 5 years at the College Tremañes (Gijón, Asturias, Spanish State). Children invented their monster and draw with the whiteboard. I have some things to Lion:

DESCRIPTION OF PHYSICAL APPEARANCE

HEAD – It has got 2 horns.

HAIR – His hair is short and coloured.

EYES – He has got 5 blue eyes: two big eyes and three small eyes

MOUTH – He has got a big mouth and green lips.  His teeth are ugly, in black and white. There is a spider web on a tooth.

NOSE – He has got a hairy big red nose, with two holes. There are moles and a horn coming out.

EARS – His two ears are pointed and big.

ARMS – He has got muscular big green arms and hairy hands. Each hand has got 7 fingers.

LEGS – Our monster has got 2 legs.

DESCRIPTION OF BEHAVIOR, HABITS, POWERS…

He’s a very disobedient monster and he breaks bottles when he is angry. But if he wants, he behaves in a correct way. He enjoys with our toys. He’s very kind to his parents. The monster is 4 years old and his birthday is October 31.

WHAT DOES HE EAT?

Our monster eats:

–          Grilled hamburgers and strawberries.

–          Roasted salty meat, pepper, peppers, onions and lettuce.

–          Spanish omelette without onion.

–          Cookies cake with black and white chocolate.

WHERE DOES HE LIVE?

Our monster lives in a cave, under a school table. He’s invisible. We can only see him with a spray.

IS THERE ANYTHING THAT SCARES THE MONSTER?

This  monster is  scared of our children.

HOW CAN YOU MAKE FRIENDS WITH THE MONSTER

Kissing on the cheek when you see him. Be kind to him: playing, dancing and inviting him to have a coffee.
