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!

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.

MATH STORYTELLING DAY

Last Tuesday 25th we celebrated the Math Storytelling Day.  Secondary pupils came to P4 classes to tell a story about a square who wanted to become a circle.

The 4 year-old children enjoyed the story a lot and they also learned different mathematic concepts like visual perception, geometry, numbering and logical thinking.

After that, they could see, in small groups, the movement of the circle and the square experimenting with wooden shapes.

They loved learning math in a different way!  Thank you mates for explaining such an interesting story!

 

A PHYSICS LESSON IN P5

ana 7 ana 5 ana 6 ana 7Last week Vanesa Almagro, Caterina (P5) and Antonio’s (P3) mum came to our School to do different science activities related on physics and her job.

First of all they talked about Einstein, who he was, what he studied and what he discovered.

They made a wave machine with Cello tape and wooden ice-lolly sticks. Throughout this experiment children could understand and learn how the waves are created.

Then, they poured some water in a tray and put some drawn flowers with the petals closed inside. Little by little they observed that the petals started to open slowly because of the capillarity process. Vanessa explained to them that there is a substance in paper called “fibrin” which absorbs water and makes flowers open.

Finally, they worked on the magnetic force by using magnets and metal objects. They could observe the attraction force between the magnets.

It was a very interesting experience! Thank you for your collaboration!

 

MICROWORLD

Last week Nacho Santos’s parents (P5-A) came to our school to do different activities related to their jobs.

The P5 A and B children went to the Biology’s laboratory and Nacho’s mum taught us characteristics from different body human cells. We could also observe some cells with the microscope.

Nacho’s dad, who is a doctor, explained to us what his job is about. He brought his stethoscope and let us hear our heart beats.

It was an amazing experience!

Thank you Santos Semidey family for your collaboration!
