Les frases fetes, els refranys i les locucions són elements lingüístics que formen part de la llengua i que eren molt vius en els parlars dels nostres avis, però que avui en dia es van perdent entre el jovent. La nostra escola, amb l’objectiu de no deixar perdre aquesta riquesa lèxica que ens han deixat els nostres avantpassats, proposa de nou un concurs de frases fetes per difondre-les de forma lúdica entre els nostres alumnes. Cada mes es publicarà a Mysilbox un formulari amb una frase feta. Els nois i les noies només cal que seleccionin la resposta correcta, facin una fotografia original que il·lustri la frase feta i la pengin al formulari. Cada mes, la imatge més original, decorarà la nostra escola.
The children of infant and primary education have celebrated the festival of “Castañada”. Maria Castañera came to visit to give the children roasted chestnuts. In the afternoon the smaller children celebrated Halloween with their English teachers, reciting poetry, singing and dancing in their Halloween masks that they had made. The primary course had different activities and games to enjoy. Everyone enjoyed the festivals and traditions eating roasted chestnuts, “panellets” (a small cake made with ground almonds and pine nuts) and sweet potatoes.
Last year 2 ESO students have won the 1st Prize awarded by the SARquavitae Foundation: “The Geriatros Foundation Awards – SARquavitae awarded with the aim of recognizing the social commitment of individuals and institutions that contributes to better the quality of life of the elderly and Make the world a major place ” (http://www.sarquavitae.es/).
The 2015-16 course, on the initiative of the 2ESO tutor, Mrs. Rubio, started a collaboration program between the school and the Icaime day care centre that treats patients with Alzheimer’s in its initial phase.Dr. Navas, Director of Icaime, gave a lecture to students about Alzheimer’s disease, the needs of those affected and how to treat them. Next, the project was started, which was to prepare activities of cognitive stimulation, which would be carried out in the day centre itself in the workshop hours with the participation of the users of the centre.
It is worth mentioning the work of the 2nd ESO tutors, Mrs. Rubio and D. De La Vega, who accompanied the class work and the start-up of the on-site workshop. On 21st November they will go to Madrid to collect the prize.
The children of second primary went on a type of obstacle course for their senses.In the morning smelling different aromatic plants, tasting Autumn fruits, listening to the sounds of nature, touching various textures and of course observing their surroundings.In the afternoon with everything they had been shown and collected they made “The Chest of Senses”.
Our school has been one of the 6 schools chosen from all over Catalunya for the first educational experience within the Smart City Expo World Congress Barcelona! We are so very glad and proud, therefore our students already work on the first phase: Design Competition.
Here some more words!
Smart City EDucational Xperience has been specifically designed for encouraging the Young generation thinking, designing and making the world they want to live in as well as belonging to a society built by themselves within Smart City Expo World Congress 2017. SCEDX is a multifaceted, non-formal, and a blended learning educational experience where several projects and activities will be developed by 36 students from 6 different high schools, working together through a co-creation methodology; a sequence of activities which have been designed for being developed through co-creation and collaboration by students of different schools, where the competential aim is to help them identifying their strengths and minimizing their fears, always through collaboration and cocreation, inspiring each other and optimizing the summatory of their individual abilities. They will do that through a competition of industrial design, a smart hackaton for designing a smart urban superisle, and the creation and edition of a collaborative documentary of the whole experience made by themselves.

On Monday 16th October the children of 6th Primary went on an excursion to La Granja in Santa Maria de Palautodera. After breakfast and playing for a short while they started their activities, each group had three tasks of cohesion to complete, during these tasks they realised the importance of good communication, learning how to listen and how to transmit their ideas.
Although they weren’t always succesful on their first attempts they didn’t give in, and with the participation of everybody and helping one another they managed to succeed. When they had finished their activities it was lunch time and after eating they had a short time to play and investigate the forest.
It was a very full day and lots of fun.
On Wednesday the 11th of October, we went to the “Can Julià” masia and we did a cooking workshop. Although at the beginning we were a little bit scared because we don’t know how to cook some dishes, finally we got very excited as we see that the recipes were funny and delicious. The yogurts and the cupcakes were delightful! We are sure that in the future we can do them again at home.
This week the Preschool children have planted and watered our garden.
First, we have observed and smelled the plants and then, we have made a hole in the soil and planted the shoots. Finally, we have watered the plants to help them grow.
The P3 children have planted different aromatic plants like lavender, rosemary, thyme, mint and basil.
The P4 and P5 children have planted vegetables: lettuces, carrots, broccoli, chard and spinach.
The P5 children have also planted peas in the classroom and soon they will also plant broad beans to observe how the seeds grow.
We loved the experience!
Greetings from Bishop O’Connell High School in Arlington, Virginia! As you may know, Bishop O’Connell has become Colegio SIL’s sister school in the U.S, and the experience has been phenomenal! We are a co-ed catholic high school in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area founded in 1957. We are currently celebrating our sixtieth anniversary.
The exchange program between our two schools is now three years old. It took off when nine students from SIL came to Virginia the fall of 2014. This year, twelve O’Connell students and two teachers are traveling to Barcelona, and we could not be more excited. Our group will arrive on Friday, October 6. The students have been getting acquainted with their hosts and their families through social media. Like in past years, we know that new life-long friendships are being forged.
We would like to thank Ms. Balcells and everyone at Colegio SIL for having us. A special thank you goes out to Ms. Yolanda Rubio for her hard work planning what will be a wonderful week filled with fun and culturally enriching activities. We cannot wait to enjoy it all. See you soon!
