Trip to “Los Olivos”

Posted: November 30, 2012 in Uncategorized

Hi there,

This week our 4th grade students visited the farm “Los Olivos”. It was a great experience for all of them since, they saw and touched a wide variety of animals, as for example, pigs, rabbits, cows… Students  planted seeds and had a guided tour around the olive industry.  They tasted olives too!

Here some pictures, they really enjoyed it!

Christmas Concert

Posted: November 28, 2012 in Uncategorized

This year the school Xmas concert included new things. Like every year students demonstrated their high level in foreign languages singing in Spanish, English and German. Foreign languages teacher practiced with them the right pronunciation and the music teacher the best way to sing and play the different carols. An innovation this year was   that students also sang the Chinese version of the well-known Xmas song: Jingle Bells and the fact that money was raised for charity through a riffle where our students and their families bought some tickets in order to participate in the riffle. They got lovely presents!

It was great fun!

1º ESO Walk!

Posted: November 28, 2012 in Uncategorized

Hi there,

Here are some photos from our 1ºESO walk on Friday. We had a lovely day botanising and hiking. The students learnt how to identify endemic plant species and about some of the problems that invasive species are causing. We also took some water samples that we are going to study for micro organisms using the microscopes.

Modal verbs!

Posted: November 28, 2012 in Uncategorized
Hi,
 Students from 2º ESO are going to learn about the use of modal verbs to express obligation. To help them understand the use of modals I have found this video that gives various explanations and examples. It explains the difference between auxiliary and modal verbs and gives examples of situations in which we use modals for obligation as well as prohibition. The video can be stopped at any time and ss can then give their answers to the activities that  appear in the video.
I hope you find it useful

Tree Day!!!

Posted: November 26, 2012 in Uncategorized

Today in our school we have celebrated the “tree day”, an important day for our students that learnt about the importance of trees. To commemorate this day, our 4th grade students have been divided into four groups and each group has worked something related to trees. For example, one of the groups has created a little herbarium with different leaves found in the school. Another group, has worked the recycling. The third group, has created a poster about germination and the fourth group has discussed about why trees are important for our daily life and has written their reasons.

Science facts!

Posted: November 26, 2012 in Uncategorized

Here is a website about science facts, projects, experiments and science fair ideas. The home page is focusing on wintery questions, for example why do leaves change their colour in the autumn and how do animals spend the winter? This is particularly relevant for 3ºEP as we are studying plants at the moment in class. http://www.sciencemadesimple.com/

Present perfect or past simple?

Posted: November 26, 2012 in Uncategorized
Last week students form 1º ESO started learning about the differences between past simple and present perfect.
One of the exercises was related to ´Have you ever…?´ questions. I have found this song that can be used as a warm-up activty. It gives various examples with ´Have you ever´. It´s an online activity where ss have to choose what they hear in the song by clicking the pictures with expressions.
I hope you like it.
