An environmental project

The 2 ESO students were tasked with creating a poster as an environmental campaign/group in which they describe an environmental issue in their region or other countries. Moreover, they used the internet to search for information about the long term problems they may create as well as possible future solutions that their group proposes. Creativity was encouraged and valued while creating the title, slogan and design for the project.

A Nature Journal

Last Tuesday, 1 ESO students received their prizes after participating in the contest to make “a nature journal”. We are amazed by the quality of the works and we want to show you some examples from the winners.

St Patrick’s Day (17th March)

During the following week, we will celebrate St Patrick’s Day with different activities (A Scavenger Hunt, Presentations about Ireland, Workshops to make a Leprechaun hat and a shamrock and lucky four-leaf clover,etc). In those presentations, our language assistants Lindsay Keller and David Hidrogo will tell us about one of the most famous symbols of Irish Culture. This is a festivity which takes place in different parts of the world (because Irish people travelled all over the world through its history) and it is known for its friendly atmosphere full of traditional music and dancing.

So, don’t forget to wear green clothes next week and enjoy this celebration.

You can find some of the material you are going to use in class below.



A Nature Journal

The Department of Biology, the Aldea Project and the Bilingual Programme designed an activity outdoors to show students the power of observation. 1 ESO students walked through a park near our high school to look for plants, flowers, trees … to compose their nature journals.

After a quick talk to explain the activity, they were divided in groups to find natural models to illustrate their sketchbooks. It was not an artistic purpose. The main goal was to pay attention to all the details that Nature brings us and show them in their diaries using drawings and words. The students enjoyed the experience and ,as a final project, they will make a nature journal collecting the different pages they created in this activity.

Learning English through Drama

Last 3rd March 100 students of 1 and 2 ESO groups attended a theatre play inspired in Oliver Twist, the famous classic novel by Oscar Wilde. The play tells the story of a poor orphan who had to face a lot of challenges to survive in 19th century London. The play was performed by three amazing actresses who made us have a great time with her acting and singing. Our students loved the play who was spoken in English and enjoyed this live performance which mixed drama, comedy and musical.


Our American language assistants, Lindsay and David, have been in different classes explaining the real meaning of this festivity in American culture. The following presentation has been made by one of them, Lindsay Keller for our ESO students.

1 ESO students with their teacher Diana made amazing and colourful Thanksgiving cards that we can see on the Erasmus Board in the main corrridor.


1º ESO students have created a video and some posters related to noise pollution. They explain what noise pollution means, how harmful may be for our health and different solutions to solve or reduce the problem. The posters show different levels of noise (measured in decibels) produced by humans as well as nature.


Just before Christmas, students of different groups performed some songs with percussion instruments and body percussion. Some examples:


Merry Christmas and a Peaceful 2023!

As usual, we have celebrated the end of the year with several activities in all the courses which participate in the Bilingual Programme. During this month, our language assistants Jazmin Robles and Nick Mosley have been giving talks about the way this festivity is celebrated in their hometowns. They have also prepared activities like an escape room, carols and games related to Christmas time. Our students have had a great time learning about foreign traditions.

In the following image you can see Jazmin, our language assistant, who has been telling 4 ESO students about Christmas in the USA. They have also played bingo to practise Christmas songs as well as Christmas riddles to improve vocabulary related to this topic. We want to thank Jasmine for preparing such entertaining and funny classes.

The 1º ESO students have created the perfect background with their Music teacher. You probably have listened to their carols which have been sounding in the nearby corridors during these last class days.

We have also organized the Christmas Cards competition with 1st and 2nd ESO. You can look at all these wonderful cards on the Bilingual Board next to the entrance.

The 3rd ESO students have made some Christmas Bookmarks to illustrate different features of this cheerful holiday.

And finally, our 4 ESO students want to wish us all the best for this time of the year by reciting some Christmas poems. We hope you like them!


Music and your Mind

4 ESO students have been learning about different issues related to music: how music can bring people together, different types of music, how they feel when they listen to music and how to talk about their favourite singer or band. Some of them have made very interesting posters about the effects of music in our brain. You can watch examples on the main board of the corridor. Hope you like them!
