Twinspace and Youtube Channel


   The most important thing in this kind of European projects is our students' engagement and involvement in the tasks proposed. To get so, partners decided to implement a paralell Etwinning project where our students will be the protagonists. Now they've got their own project site, their project Twinspace, where to implement reading projects, share opinions and discuss their findings.        Moreover, we've launched our project Youtube Channel where to upload our students' videos because....a picture is worth a thousand words, isn't it?

Europe for Culture also in Carnival

   Last 9th February we celebrated Carnival at school. Our 1st ESO students organised their traditional Haka dance of Maori culture (New Zealand). It was a vigorous dance and they actually achieved to show us their strenght and prowess as former warriors used to do before a war!
   It was our way to connect our pupils with a different culture from the other side of the world. In a way, we wanted to contribute to Europe's celebration throughtout the year our diverse cultural heritage across Europe and worldwide. Watch this out!


This term... Frankenstein!

   Our students have started reading the graded book Frankenstein to celebrate its 200th anniversary this year 2018. We'd like our students to meet and know deeply one of the most influential 19th century writers and topics such as creation, appearances, revenge, sciences, compasion, forgiveness and sacrifice.
   To start with, a brainstorming in pairs is convenient. Our students have been working to deal with anticipation activities, guessing and infering what can comes next by means of answering an inital questionnaire:

  • Who wrote Frankenstein?
  • When was it written?
  • Who was Victor?
  • Who does the Monster kill? what do you think?
  • What do you think happens to Victor in the end?
  • What do you know about Frankenstein?
  • What do you want to know?

World Read Aloud Day 2018

   2nd February 2018 we celebrated at school World Read Aloud Day 2018 #WRAD2018 to celebrate reading as an essential skill in our languages and communication learning. Our students were encouraged to bring their favourite read books to class, select some paragraphs and read them aloud to the rest of their classmates. They shared their favourites stories and enjoyed them a lot!
