Today the girls and boys of primary met some very special friends: The Donkeys of Canyamars.
They cared for them and groomed them and helped them with their work, also at the end they went for a walk with their new friends.
They had a marvelous time, learned many things and had great fun with the various races of donkeys.
We hope we can return again soon !
The children of fifth primary went to the Iberian fortress of Calafell to see and experience how the Iberians lived.
Georgina and Oriol, our guides, took us on an interesting journey through the village where we could see how the houses were, what food they ate and how they produced their objects artisanally, etc. After we had the opportunity to do a workshop project of house construction.
At the end of the excursion to the fortress we went to eat in the Ribes Rojas de Vilanova i la Geltru Park. We had a fantastic time.
The students of 3th primary dressed in roman robes because we are working on a project of the Roman civilization .
We have had fun putting us ourself in the shoes of the romans and discovering things about the Roman Empire.
Last Wednesday 4EP did a heart dissection in the lab with the help of 3ESO. It was a pig´s heart.
It was very funny and interesting!
We learnt the scientific names of the heart like Superior Vena, Cava Pulmonary and Vein Pulmonary.
We went to the new lab and used latex gloves to protect our hands. Thanks to Dr Lázaro and our friends of 3ESO!!
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!
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.
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.
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!
