Hi everyone,

In 1 Bach Adv we are reading this truly wonderful novel and the students are learning how to share their views through literature circles, where they are focusing on themes, characters, the setting and their opinions. They are also learning to listen to each other and to understand different perspectives as well as enhancing their understanding and enjoyment of the book. As they had previously carried out a brief research on Jane Austen, they are also able to pick out some of the biographical aspects that are so characteristic of Austen’s novels.

Hi everyone,

To celebrate library day 1st and 2nd ESO have been doing some fun group projects and presentations about Fantasy children’s books. The student in groups of three or four, had to choose a book that they had read or seen the film. They then researched the story and produced book covers or posters containing information about the author, characters and  a short summary about the book. They presented their work to the rest of class.
Some students created quizzes about the book, which were played by the whole class.

Here you have a few photographs of their presentations.

Well done!

Hi everyone,

This week kids in 5A and 6B have met The Little Prince and its magical universe. They have been reading and discover the wonderful story in this book. For Library day, they have chosen one of the famous quotes and they have made a poster. They have enjoyed and it looks great! ☺️😊😊

This term we will be working on different books and doing different projects.

We have just finished with the summer reader evaluations that have, on the whole, shown good understanding of the books. Our students have read about Trolls and ghost stories in 3ESO; Henry VIII and his six wives in 4 ESO; Leonardo da Vinci in 1 Bach and finally about Martin Luther King in 2 Bach. These stories will also be used in our first mini projects.

On 24 October we have our amazing Library Day! And this year it will be devoted to Fantastic Literature in Secondary and we have some great activities lined up… More to come about this closer to the date.

Remember that a book a day, keeps ignorance away!

Readers and Literature 3 ESO-2 Bach/2IB

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.
James.

Thanks

This term has started with a dip into the fascinating world of multiple intelligences…

Using music to inspire creative writing, feelings and pictures…

Exploring words from the books on the board to get the students to figure out the importance they may have for the plot…

Using coloured pens to create a visual poster of words and pictures evoked by music…

Watching a trailer of the film version of the book we are about to read and relating it to our world knowledge…

Adapting a part of a Shakespeare play to a modern setting and language and acting it out…

Improvising a scene from a play and transferring the setting to a different place and time…

Reading a narrative like a play, taking on different parts and using voice to convey character…

Playing Kahoots to explore symbolism and to learn about different aspects about the book and author…

Thinking up parts of a Shakespeare play as an exit ticket…

Exploring the rural and urban aspects of Kabul in Afghanistan, Verona in Italy and many more places though 360cities where you can visit a place virtually…

Tapping into out fantasy world in a magic forest with fairies and the like…

In short, we have used all our intelligences to explore the pre- reading of our new readers. “What about the Interpersonal and Intrapersonal intelligences”, I hear you ask … well the Interpersonal has been used when working as a group and collaborating and cooperating with the others in class and… the intrapesonal has been explored when letting the music narrate a story in our heads. We will continue to explore these two (and all the others) further by using an amazing app called Seesaw; an online learning journal with adjacent blog. Stay tuned to the next blog entry for more exciting information about our creative world of Readers.
