Family-school

Last week Paula and Alvaro’s parents (P3-A/P5-A) came to our school to do different activities related to their jobs.

Paula and Alvaro’s dad, who is a neurosurgeon in Vall Hebron Hospital, explained the brain parts and function to us. We enjoyed wearing a doctor uniform a lot.

Paula and Alvaro’s mum, who is a nurse, explained to us what her job is about. She brought her stethoscope and let us hear our heart beats.

It was an amazing experience!

Thanks to  Martínez-Jiménez  for your collaboration!

We celebrate “Santa Cecília” enjoying musical activities

Last week the P3, P4 and P5 children celebrated “Santa Cecilia” enjoying different musical activities:

-We had the chance to observe and listen to a wind metal instrument: the horn.

-They also participated in a Musical stimulation workshop based on Dàmaris Gelabert method “Tot Sona” and they could experience the music with their bodies throughout  traditional dances.

-They worked on a musical audition and showed their feelings by doing an art activity.

On Thursday afternoon they attended a concert. They enjoyed listening to the piano, clarinet, Alt recorder and guitar. They observed string and wind instruments and they could also work on their musical voices and hearing.

We loved participating in so many different musical activities!

1st Primary visit the museum of History of Catalonia.

This morning the students of 1st Primary have visited the museum of History of Catalonia.
We have made a journey in time discovering the evolution of the modes of transport. We have sailed, we have ridden and we’ve even driven a hundred-year-old tram!

It’s been a most exciting morning!

The scientist Quimet and his helpers

This week Quimet the scientist and his helpers have come to visit us!

First, they challenged us.  We had to think, make hypothesis, comparisons and find solutions.

The P3 children worked on flotation and discovered that some objects float in the water and other sink depending on the material they are made of and its weigh.

The P4 pupils worked on the different qualities of hot and cold air. First, they took one empty bottle and they covered it with a balloon on the top. Then, they observed what happened to the balloon when they put the bottle in two different bowls: one full of cold water and the other full of hot water.

The P5 kids worked on propulsion of different objects using different shaped  and  sized  balloons.

It was a great experience. We learned a lot from them. Thank you for your visit.

” La castañera ” & Halloween

Throughout the day, the students of the school have celebrated Halloween, with the scary tunnel of terror and performances of students of l’ESO, and they have been visited by Herminia, the sister of Maria Castañera. She brought us roasted chestnuts to taste and we had a fun time. Today it has been very special and fun, working and investigating the traditions of different cultures we have also learnt interesting things.  

 

Learning & service

Last week 3rd of  ESO pupils came to the P5 classes to show the toys they had been making with recycled containers.

In small groups they explained to us how they made the toys and the materials they used. They also talked about how an idea can become a real object.

The secondary pupils felt very satisfied watching the little ones playing with the toys they had made before with lots of effort.  P5 children enjoyed a lot playing thanks to their older mates’ work.

Thank you for your collaboration!
