Landscapes!

Posted: October 24, 2017 in SOCIAL STUDIES
In Social Studies students have been learning about landscapes. They have revised the landforms and identified natural and man-made landscapes. They have worked in pairs and during the following weeks they will do the group project. They will receive, for example, the description of a coastal, mountain, man- made landscapes with various landformas and instructions and they will have to draw or paint following the instructions. During our last lesson students watched the video about landscapes and bodies of water.. Here is the link to the video. Hope you will like it.

Learning Spanish Geography!

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.

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!

Hi everyone,

Our Y4 students have been working on our lovely projects about cities and they created really nice models. Darlyne created her own city and explained the rest of the class about the public services.

Well done everyone!

Our planet

Posted: April 21, 2017 in SOCIAL STUDIES

Hi everyone,

This week 6th primary students have started talking about our planet during their social studies lessons. One of the issues raised in this new project is severe weather. Here is a link to the video explaining, for example, how tornadoes, hurricanes and thunderstorms are formed and showing students some examples. We hope you will like it.

Talking about Prehistory!

Posted: March 23, 2017 in SOCIAL STUDIES

Hi everyone,

In 1 ESO Social Studies we are about to start project work on Prehistory, the period before history started i.e. before writing was invented.

In the unit we are going to learn about how humans have evolved over a period of time and our ancient descendants.
We will be learning about the different periods of prehistory and how humans have gone from hunter gatherers to sedentary farmers. The type of tools they used, how they lived and what archaeologists found to show that these people existed.

Below is an interesting video that shows the evolution of mankind over this period, hope you enjoy it.

Enjoy it!

Hi everyone,

Students of 3rd Primary did a project that combined Social Studies (Countries) and English (going to). They are touristic guides of a place and explain the things we can do there. They were very creative bringing clothes according to the place, doing very interesting presentations and enjoying the chance of working together. Here you have the result…
