EXCHANGE WITH STOVRING, DENMARK

23rd -30th SEPTEMBER 2017

This group of 1º Bachillerato students travelled to Stovring Gymnasium in Denmark. It is the first part of the exchange the CLIL team has organized this year. We enjoyed a warming welcome, fantastic treat from families and teachers, and unforgettable visits. The High School is a great place for students to feel relaxed and ready to learn. It is a comfortable place where they feel at home. Teachers have different environments to work and relax. There is fruit on the staffroom  tables, and a kitchen with hot coffee, tea, and a fridge. The building, and facilities both for students and teachers are very different from ours here in Spain. However, we were so happy to see our students were enjoying all through. Their language skills in English have allowed them to feel at ease at all times. The teachers and families have told us they have been really nice communicative and  sociable hosts. Congratulations to all! On the way back we also had the opportunity to enjoy some hours in Copenhagen.

AVITAE day 2017 in the Cabrera Pinto

AVITAE project is about to finish. We wanted to celebrate our last AVITAE day showing pictures and results of this three year journey. We hope by sharing them, other teachers and students feel inspired to try the Strategic Partnership Erasmus KA2 Projects. They are a way to develop language, digital, managerial skills, and make  High Schools more international.

 

3º ESO CLIL Students: “Electronics and Airspace Technologies”

It is really warm, and the school year is about to finish, and 3º ESO students are ready to launch their rockets into space. They have worked on this project for some some time, together with their teacher Javier Mederos, and this is what they have created. It is impressive! They had a great time!

1º ESO students have prepared different trips for their Polish friends

1º  ESO students have prepared some trips for visitors to our islands. These are some of the ones students have shared with me. They planned trips for their e-twinning friends.

“If our Polish friends from e-Twinning could come to The Canary Islands, we would take them to these places.”

Building Bridge Models in Technology

ESO students have been working on their bridge model projects with their teacher Javier Mederos. They have just finished them. Have a look at some of  the models inspired in different ones in the world. Which one do you think holds the most weight?

These are some of the models from 1º ESO B

And these are models from group A and C. Look at how much weight they can hold.

Isn’t it amazing! Well done!

Congratulations to 1º ESO students for their “killer presentations”

 

Steve Jobs was famous for his great presentations. He started  with a great story, to catch the  attention of his audience, used a few words, lots of images,  and powerful slogans such as: iPhone: “apple reinvents the phone” ; iPod:”one thousand songs in your pocket”. He usually finished with something extra “one more thing”…

One of the secrets of his “success” is that he practiced his presentations, so when he presented them, it seemed he was enjoying, not working. There is a saying in English: “Practice makes perfect”

This is exactly what the 1º ESO students did. They worked on their presentations about different trips in the Canary Islands, and they have prepared excellent presentations.  Congratulations!
