Hello everyone,

This term we started using Seesaw, a wonderful online learning journal. We have been using it for Readers and also for the interdisciplinary project 4 ESO carried out on Tenerife in the Teide National Park.

For Readers in 3 ESO up to 1 BACH, the students have been reading at home using class time for tasks and reflections that they share and comment on in the seesaw app.

While in Tenerife, the students had to explore their surroundings through the perspective of the multiple intelligences, taking representative pictures for each of the 8 intelligences and then explaining their reasons for selecting them. They then had to assemble the photos into a visually attractive collage and since all the work done is shared through Seesaw, everyone can comment and like each other’s work.

In Readers, the students in 3 ESO and in the intermediate groups of 4 ESO and 1 Bach, have designed their own project by selecting tasks from 6 of the multiple intelligences, having to carry out some individually and some in groups, and again sharing them on seesaw to comply with the intrapersonal intelligence by reflecting on their reading and work and the interpersonal intelligence by commenting on their class mate’s work.

Have a look at the pictures for a better idea!

Hi folks,
This week we have introduced the third conditional.
Here is an interactive match-up quiz that can be done as a warm-up activity.

Hello everyone,
This week fifth primary have been researching all kinds of weird and wonderful things from around the globe, so far they’ve discovered there is an actual tomato fighting sport, somewhere people have to have the same haircuts and carnivorous insects actually exist!
I’m looking forward to hearing all about the others things that they have found too.
What a strange world we all live in.

Hi everyone,

In 2nd ESO we are learning about how we humans have had an impact on the environment.

Examples can be in many forms:
1) Modifying the natural landscape, deforestation, agriculture and urban growth.
2) Environmental pollution, atmospheric, water and soil pollution.
3) The impact of population growth and urban spread.

Students are producing projects on a environmental issue of their choosing.
Firstly they are assessing what the problem is and understanding the consequence of doing nothing about it (why it matters).
Secondly they are researching who, or what is causing the environmental issue.
Lastly they are thinking about what they can do to improve or solve the issue. Whether it be in the form of direct action for example recycling, or indirect action i.e. raising awareness to the public or government organisations.

The following thought provoking video is an example about how the choices of an individuals travel arrangements can impact the environment.

 

Regards

Peter

Hi everyone!

We’ve found the following interactive maps where students can learn the different autonomous communities, capitals or countries in Europe. We are working on this topic this term. I hope you give it a good use!

States of Matter

Posted: June 4, 2017 in SCIENCE, Uncategorized

Hello everyone,
In third primary we have finished our exams so now it’s time to have some fun!
We have started to plan some experiments to look into the different energies we were learning about in class. Here we are investigating sound energy and looking at how well it travels through the three different states of matter.

I love Reading Project!

Posted: June 1, 2017 in Uncategorized

Hi folks,

We recently told you about “love reading project”, a project we’ve been doing with 1 Bach for the kids in primary 3. Well, today it’s been the great day!
Our students had a great time reading out for them the stories they had written and the kids had a lot of fun listening to them. Have a look at the pictures.

That’s all for now.
