Last January ,our 1 ESO students went to Maestro Padilla Theatre to see a funny play in English called “Derailed” by Face to Face company. This comedy was inspired by a mystery novel by Agatha Christie and tells the story of a detective who must find out a thief among some eccentric passengers.
We had a great time watching our own students performing on stage and singing some of the songs in this play. We are convinced that theatre is a great resource to learn languages and we will repeat the experience.
On 15th February, we could see about 90 students running upwards and downwards our stairs tracking for clues.
What was it going on? Yes, you got it.
They were participating in our Historical Heritage Tour. This was a gymkhana organized by the Bilingual programme to make our students learn about places, curiosities and facts at Celia Viñas High School.
2 ESO students, divided in groups of 6, rushed and sprinted for 3 hours to be the first participants to answer all the questions on time. They went through corridors,the well courtyard,the library, the assembly hall, the laboratories,the chapel,etc like characters in Hogwarts to reach the precious treasures.
A historical tour to know about the amazing place where we learn, work and live everyday. All the teachers in the bilingual programme participated and we also had the great help of Ana Ortiz Torres and other students who are doing their teaching internships in our school.
Thanks to all of them and the 2 ESO students who took part in this activity!!!
Ps.- A final task for our gymkhana: our poster is a version of a very famous poster which illustrated a record and a film of the most important British Band. Who are they? Which is the title of this record?.
Which day is today? Do you know why British people celebrate this day? Watch this video and you will get the answers.
Is there any connection between Guy Fawkes and the Anonymous movement in some protests all over the world? Read this worksheet (done with information from Wikipedia) about this historical character and discuss this topic in class.
