In the English class 4º ESO students and their teacher Carmen Nieves Hernández have prepared different surveys using google forms and questioned their classmates to know about music preferences, favourite films, series, sports, study habits, traveling, family life, parties…
They presented their results to the class. Some of the results were really astonishing. Have a look at the video below.

Today some groups of 3º ESO students and their teachers had a nice walk in El Puerto de la Cruz. We Started the tour at the Anglican Church. Mr. Ramón Michán, a very nice experienced and friendly volunteer from Puerto de la Cruz, explained to us about The Anglican church, and also the Grand Hotel Taoro. So many curiosities and anecdotes! How different must have been then!
We ended up in Casa Litre, and the beautiful gardens there. The famous writer Agatha Christie spent a few weeks on this area, in the year 1927, after some personal life difficulties she had encountered. It was a place for her to get over her health problems.
Here she wrote the book The Mysterious Mr Queen and also, one of Mrs Marple’s Stories. Apparently, there is a story told there which is really interesting. A couple meets there for the first time and then… Sorry! You will have to read the book to know about that Mysterious Mr Quin. But the story took place here where this couple of students are!
