This week Quimet the scientist has come to visit us once again!
First, he challenged us. We had to think, make hypothesis and comparisons.
The P3 children worked on dissolutions. They mixed water with different elements and observed what happened in each case.
The P4 pupils experimented with the “chromatography” and discovered the great variety of pigments that form the colours.
In P5 we worked on the paper level of absorption with watered paint. We could observe that mixing primary colours we can get many different secondary colours.
We had so much fun!
In third primary we are doing a project about The Romans, and paying special attention to their footwear and noticing that we dress similar to them today. It has been good fun to see the different togas and styles of other clothes they wore.
In 1st Primary we have already started our second project. We are learning a lot about animals, we have taken photographs and information from books,magazines etc and comprised our own scrapbook, where we can keep everything.
Every day our expertise grows.
After 8 editions of the SIL Mathematics Contest, this school-year we have started version 2.0: participation via Twitter. It has been a success! 261 participants have competed to solve the proposed challenges.
Congratulations to all the participants and thank you very much for making it posible!

Last February 23rd , our High School students received a very special visit: SIL School Alumni, university students now, came back to school to share their experiences on this new stage. They are studying different fields as ADE, engineering, languages, law, medicine, among others. What a better way to get first-hand information about a not so far future? The alumni talked about the great offer and the different choices there are. This activity may help student to make the right decision about their future. No doubt our students found the experience reassuring and encouraging.
The students of 5th primary went on an excursion to Cornella. We visited the Museum of Mathematics in Catalonia (MMACA). This museum is in the park of Can Mercader.
We did two activities:
In a place inside the museum we enjoyed ourselves doing maths with our hands, and although it doesn’t look like it you can play with maths.
The other activity we did was construct Leonardo Da Vinci’s Dome. It seemed strange what we could make with some wooden sticks, it was like magic, when we had finshed building it everyone could go inside.
We very much enjoyed doing maths with our hands.
On Tuesday the 6th February we went to the factory of Idilia Foods where we watched how “Cola Cao” was produced. We discovered what the ingredients were and watched the full manufacturing process, we were also shown all the types of “Cola Cao” that there are. At the end, for our breaktime snack we tried some of the products chocolate, biscuits and chocolate milkshakes. It was great.
