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!
As a culmination of a week with activities about the Castañada festivity and Halloween, it has been held the award cerimony of the 7th Celebration of the Family Chestnut Contest. After counting 368 votes, the results are the following:
1st Prize: Family Siemens
2nd Prize: Family Espinal Loaiza
3rd Prize: Family Caviccholi Villar and family Bruno Mas
We would like to point out the creativity and participation of all of the works and contestants and we are delghted to call you upon to attend the eighth celebration.
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.
In the Sala d’Actes of the school, diplomas attesting the level of English of our students have been delivered: Starters, Movers, Flyers, KET, PET , FCE, CPE i CAR . 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!

5th grade students are journalists now! They’re writing their first internet magazine (an e-zine) in Cambridge classes in English. Soon in “My SIL Box”.
Among all the activities planned, the group of American students entered the Primary and ESO classrooms to practice their Spanish. Each group has previously prepared an activity to do with them and they all have had great fun! The experience has been a big success!
A few days ago the 4th grade students started a new Project called “The Expert”.
It is an activity of cooperative work. The aim of this activity is learning in a team work, within classmates. This way the team will deal with skills like listening, building knowledge, cooperation to reach a common goal, helping, autonomy and learning to learn.
Last Thursday the students from primary 1st had a funny surprise. They mustn’t have to line up as every afternoon, because their parents went upstairs, to their classrooms to spend a nice time together.
Their children could show them their desks, could tell them anecdotes and share their classroom
