2 ESO students connect Middle Ages to Recycling

After studying Middle Ages and analysing this historical period, 2 ESO A students have designed and  created models of medieval artifacts using recycled materials.


3 ESO students start promoting JM solidarity campaign

As part of the preparations for the Caring Street Market, which will be held  in December, 3 ESO B pupils  have informed their schoolmates and decorated school premises with  posters giving details about this action. The money raised during this campaign will be given to a local NGO selected by the own pupils.

 Reduce, reuse and recycle

I'm sure everybody has heard of the 3 R's - reduce, reuse and recycle.  In fact, practising the  3 R's seems to be the only way to cut back on the millions of tonnes of rubbish and waste that we produce every year.
How can we help? Well, we can help by learning about and practicing the three R's of waste management. And this is precisaly what 1 bachillerato students will be doing during this month: to research on this topic and  prepare scientific posters to show their conclusions.

So remember,  if you want to make a difference to the Earth's health and contribute to improve the environment and, as a result, world economy, start practising the 3 R's.


 Holiday Card Exchange for Year 1 pupils

1 ESO pupils take part in international IEARN project. The project, called "Holiday Card Exchange", involves exchanging greeting cards through the mail, as well as learning about other participating schools through the iEARN forums.
Our school has been placed in a group along with other 7 schools located in countries such as Canada or Russia. In order to meet the requirements of the project, 1 ESO pupils have been asked to prepare a Christmas card and an introduction letter well in advance, so that envelopes with greetings arrive at each participant before the schools start their Christmas holidays.

A journey to an exotic country

2 ESO A and B students prepare presentations and videos showing their virtual journeys to exotic countries such as Jamaica, Malaysia, Singapore or even Tuvalu. These far-away countries were once part of the British Commonwealth. This final task has been the round-off for the unit Getting There, where students have had the opportunity to learn about transport, travel, countries, and much more

Students on strike!

Last Wednesday,  November, 14th , a few students of 4º B (Bil) went on strike; but they didn't wear the clothes they usually wear, they dressep up in a completely different way and  they also felt differently because they were on strike dressing like Ancient Regime population. They are really worried about the actual situation in Spain, and they wanted to express how they felt about that. They felt that the situation nowadays is really similar to the social situation at the end of the XVIII and early XIX. They used those moments for making pictures imitating pictures of those times. Here we can see some examples.
