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.

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.
