In English we are doing “My Favourite Book” project. it consists on bringing your favourite book and tell your friends about it.
Some books are “Rumplestiltskin”, ” Dork Diary”, ” The Secret Cave” and ” Kika Crazy for Football”.
We like this project because we can improve our oral English and, at the same time, we can recommend our classmates about good books they can read.
Reading is fun!!
Is it possible to design furniture without screws? Would they be tough enough?
In our furniture Project we are studying and working the different types of efforts and structures , we are testing the strength of materials and structures found in nature ; Did you know that a piece of paper DINA4 can support the weight of a 65cm tall stool without wrinkling ?
These days we are in a process of designing different items of furniture from not bolted assembled flat structures.
More information coming!
In the Science class of 3rd grade we are studying nutrition in plants. A few weeks ago we planted some bean seeds and now they are growing. As shown in the pictures, it was easy for us to see the roots and the leaves of our plants. Remember that plants are living things and they make their own food using carbon dioxide, sunlight, water and mineral salts.
Our P4A pupil Lola Llamas Raga has been recognised in the “Dibuixem la Mercè” competition and has been awarded a certificate from Barcelona town hall.
We have started the caps’s solidarity campaign for this year. All students of Primary and Secundary courses participate in the campaign “Open your solidarity”, which is conducted in collaboration with the GAEM (Group Affected Multiple Sclerosis Foundation).
For this reason you can find containers for the collection of caps in different parts of the school.
Thank you all for your solidarity.

As part of the La Marató de TV3 campaign’s outreach about Obesity and Diabetes this year, the students of 2nd ESO have attended a talk where they could learn more about aspects of these diseases and their effects in the daily people’s lives. Tania Alvarez (a nurse at Hospital Vall d’Hebron ) has explained the causes and consequences and she has stressed the importance of avoiding a sedentary lifestyle .
Dr. Javier Vega , researcher at the Institute of Biomedical Research of Barcelona Agustí Pi Sunyer ( IDISAPS -UB ) , talked with the students of 3rd and 4th of ESO and the Baccalaureate , on ‘ The immune system and vaccines ‘ as part of the Science Week . His explanations and the subsequent discussion made us see the “power” of vaccines and their importance from the point of view of a scientist who has spent many years researching the subject. Thank you, Dr. Vega !
