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!

You can watch them in the video below!

2º ESO Students Held a Gymkhana in el Médano

2º ESO CLIL students and some of their teachers held a gymkhana in el Médano. Patricia (English), MªCarmen (Physics and Chemistry, Patricia (P.E), Elena (Technology). Students spent the day asking questions, reading bill boards, and looking for clues to solve the game. The day way amazing, sunny and warm, and the beach was the perfect place for this activity. They all enjoyed a great day with this activity.





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!

Agua García Centennial Forest


On 26th of April 1º ESO CLIL groups visited the Agua García Centennial Forest. They had studied the vegetation in class, with their biology teacher Marta Casariego, learnt about our forests with Javier Mederos, Kalina Nikolova, and  Patricia Pintor, but experiencing all that in the forest, on a bright April day was the most exciting thing they have done this term!
