This week’s English Language lesson on Irony was met with open arms by our Gr 6’s. It was a fun-filled lesson in which technology was used as an effective learning tool.

Our kids learnt about what irony is and what types of irony can be found in everyday life. Teachers made use of a Keynote as well as Youtube videos to share this knowledge with their classes.

Listening to the song “Isn’t it ironic” by Alanis Morissette, was exciting. Our kids were asked to identify the different ironies mentioned in the lyrics.


Scenarios were given in the iBook for the kids to analyse to discover the deeper meaning that was the author’s intent.


This lesson incorporated many different aspects of Multiple Intelligence in order to reach as many learners as possible. Who said language learning is boring?
