School’s garden visit

The school vegetable garden is fully operational! The Preschool children take care of the garden every week: planting the seeds, taking out dry leaves, watering the vegetables…

Last week the P3 and P4 children met their P2 and Primary 1st classmates in the garden. They showed and explained to them the different spices they had planted. They could also smell the aroma that all the aromatic plants give off and watered them altogether.

The Primary 2nd students collaborated with P5 children making labels for the different spices they had planted in the garden. Helping each other, they placed the labels in front of each plant. The P5 explained to them how they took care of the garden and they talked about the main characteristics of the plants.

Thank you for your collaboration!

5th visit the Museum of Mathematics

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.

5th Primary visit the super computer ” Marenostrum”

The students of 5th primary visited the super computer “Marenostrum” , it is the most powerful computer in Spain, which is housed in the Polytechnic University in the Pedralbes neighbourhood. They were able to see various functions to understand how this great machine works, such as programming, simulation and classification of data.

They saw live this amazing piece of machinery and now understand how it works and how it serves us. 

 

2n Primary visit the Egyptian Museum

The students of 2nd Primary are doing a project on ancient Egypt and for this reason we have been to do a workshop of mummification and we visited the Egyptian Museum.  The mummies have impressed us a lot! 
It has been very interesting to know the mysteries of this ancient civilization and we have obtained more information to continue working on our project!

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!
