Dreams and Mythology! 1st ESO
In 1st of ESO we have a goal: Comprehension and written expression in past tense using sentences. Students have created a newspaper cover about news where they are the protagonists of their own dream coming true. All kinds of colorful dreams have been written: a scientist discovering a vaccine for cancer, a football player who ends up becoming the best player of their favorite team by scoring in the last minute, a tennis player who won the Roland Garros, a young lawyer who wants to change the world… We have a diverse student body with diverse dreams that will change the world, making it fairer and more equitable.
Not only have we been dreaming, we have also investigated Greek mythology through the book “Tales from Greek Mythology”. This will help us to get a general and basic view of the ancient Greek culture in the current EG “Viatge a les antigues civilitzacions”.
Fabulous exchanges in 2nd of ESO
The students have collaborated and participated in virtual English-language speaking sessions with their US penfriends as well as classes on American culture and history through the collaboration with the Byram Hills High School in New York. This initiative has enabled students to practice English with a native American teacher. Also, they have had the opportunity to meet and see the students with whom they have been sending emails over the previous weeks.
They have also studied and discovered who Leonardo Davinci was. Davinci continues to attract the attention of the population, and historians. They will continue discovering this fascinating man during the next three weeks by doing reading and listening activities about DaVinci’s life. We will keep you updated!
Wales and Ireland 3rd ESO
Last three weeks have been the beginning of a wonderful trip to Irish and Welsh territories. Students have learnt lots of curiosities and very useful tips when really travelling there. Wishing to travel again soon..
Great art! 4th course of ESO
For thousands of years, people from all different cultures have made art. Artists have carved, painted, drawn and printed. They have produced tiny works and giant constructions, from detailed ink drawings, to rock carvings, paintings in frames, and huge abstract sculptures. Even before they invented writing, people created art to express their beliefs and feelings. Art can be realistic or not at all, some works seem calm and still, while others appear lively. Art can be lovely to look at or it can be ugly.
Through this project, we travel across art history and its most famous movements, from ‘Renaissance’ to Pop Art, from Early Art to Contemporary Art. Although not all art fits into these neat categories, it can be helpful to be able to ‘place’ art. The categories help us to work out where, when and why a piece of art was made, just by looking at it.
In conclusion, a great topic to discover using English!
