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!

Vicky and Louis are our new Conversation Assistants and will spend this school year with us. At school we are delighted to welcome them and the host families that make this project possible.
Welcome and good luck!
Last week the Preschool children went to the gym to do P.E activities. They played different games and participated in a circuit. They also learned a lot of things related to the parts of their body, spatial orientation, balance and coordination.
They had so much fun!
Our proposal this year is to add value to Technologies 3rd ESO inside (and outside) the classroom… Get ready for #ProjectAccessibility… Be aware of networks…
This week the nursery children P0-P1-P2 have started the new school year.
All the nursery teachers have been preparing a lot of different activities, games and routines to help your children to feel safe, confident and they have helped them to feel like home.
We have the winner of the photographic contest of the I FESTE SIL. Congratulations to the Comas family.
