It was a good experience for them and they enjoyed it.

Hi everyone,

This week we had a very interesting talk by a member of the Life Baqua Project which offers solutions through the new use for a waste of banana crop to develop products in aquaculture and plastics sector.

The experience was great and we learn many things about how to reuse banana crops!

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.

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.
