Teach values: recycling 2nd grade

This morning, in Arts class,  we enjoyed using recycled objects we had brought from our homes.
We created funny crafts such as rockets,robots or planes to work together and share materials with our friends.

We not only learnt about creativity but also about sharing and working together.

You’ll think twice before you throw out that old sock or cereal box you have at home!




We work values

A few days ago, the students of 2nd A of primary did an activity based on the positive values, which was fun and rewarding for them. The activity involved: each child with a card and different coloured marker hanging on their back, in which using these materials they had to write on their classmates’ cards what good things they saw in that person. Then, each child took the card off of their back and read aloud what each of their partners had written. It was a surprise for them to see that their classmates saw them as special and wonderful!

Working divisions

In the Maths class we start with the divisions. The 3rd grade tutors started to work on one figure divisions last year, and we are now starting to work these kind of operations using the pupil’s previous knowledge.

To reinforce the concept of “distribution division” and to understand the mechanism, we have taught them the “distribute” method to resolve the divisions.

Obviously, it is a resolution system but just a Little bit longer tan the conventional and traditional one that the rest of the schools teach. With this system the pupils have to use a resolution system using the logical reasoning to salve every single operation. At the same time it makes sense to the traditional system of division resolution based on the mechanic system.

There was much excitement and emotion … We must congratulate all students because this accreditation is a part, a very important part, of their education. Congratulations to them all and feel encouraged to achieve the next level!

Students from Bishop O’Connell High School are visiting SIL.

Last Friday the students from Bishop O’Connell High School arrived in Barcelona in the Student Exchange Program. They enjoyed the long weekend with their ‘families’ going to the most emblematic sites, enjoying the views of the city and tasting the most typical meals.

Today they held a meeting with the director of the school, Ms. Meritxell Balcells, who has welcomed them and they have been talking about their experiences.

We hope the rest of the stay will be just as satisfactory!
