The 2nd graders have worked on the Master Chef project during the 2nd term. Where the recipe has been worked, its preparation and quantities, we have cooked all together and we have had a great time!
First, he challenged us. We had to think, make hypothesis and comparisons.
The P3 children worked on dissolutions. They mixed water with different elements and observed what happened in each case.
The P4 pupils experimented with the “chromatography” and discovered the great variety of pigments that form the colours.
In P5 we worked on the paper level of absorption with watered paint. We could observe that mixing primary colours we can get many different secondary colours.
We had so much fun!
A few weeks ago the students of 5B primary started working on a project about the Universe and the different elements and phenomenon that exist. We asked why are there seasons, why is there night and day and if the position of Earth and its movement in space is related. We decided to design and construct a globe of Earth in small groups which would represent the movements of rotation and passage of Earth in relation to the Sun. This star would be represented by a torch. We enjoyed the project and learnt a lot, at the end of the project we decided it would be interesting to share our knowledge and show our models to our “little brothers and sisters” from 5th infant, who have recently been studying the Universe, they were really happy to see what their “big brothers and sisters” had done and listen to their interesting explanations.
After 8 editions of the SIL Mathematics Contest, this school-year we have started version 2.0: participation via Twitter. It has been a success! 261 participants have competed to solve the proposed challenges.
Congratulations to all the participants and thank you very much for making it posible!

Last February 23rd , our High School students received a very special visit: SIL School Alumni, university students now, came back to school to share their experiences on this new stage. They are studying different fields as ADE, engineering, languages, law, medicine, among others. What a better way to get first-hand information about a not so far future? The alumni talked about the great offer and the different choices there are. This activity may help student to make the right decision about their future. No doubt our students found the experience reassuring and encouraging.
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.
