percussion for polar bears- why not?

This videoclip is part of our this year’s Project Polar Bear.

Recycling and percussion for polar bears- why not?

Some months ago we invited a cool percussion team of Corbera de Llobregat, called Mais ki Samba and they performed in front of us.

Then in our music class with Genis we made our own instruments out of recycled material and we really had a lot of fun playing them.

Have a look at the fabulous outcome!

Thanks Mais ki Samba for coming to school!

HOW DO PENGUINS KEEP WARM?

The 1st grade classes have been studying penguins and learning different facts about them. We’ve learned where they live, their different body parts, and the food they eat. Today, we learned how they keep warm in cold climates. Each student placed their hands in two bags: one empty and one filled with lard. They submerged them in cold water and got first hand experience on how lard can keep them warm in the cold!

PROPERTIES OF MATERIALS

Recently, the 2nd A and B classes had the chance to complete a hands on experiment to discover the different properties of materials they have learned in class. We discovered which materials are strong, waterproof, transparent, and flexible. Take a look at the pictures below to see how we did this experiment!

EXPLORING THE WORLD THROUGH MY SENSES

We can discover lots of things through our senses. This is what 3rd grade students have been doing the past few weeks! We have been smelling, watching, tasting, hearing and finally touching different elements. We had a great time and we learnt that our senses are connected to our brain! Here you can see some pictures about the ‘touch’ practise. Enjoy!

WE ARE BOTANISTS

During this term, 2nd grade students have been studying the plants. Therefore, last week they started an activity related to school trees. With the help of different leaf shapes, they had to discover the trees that were hiding behind them. So they became botanists for an hour and investigated the leaves of the trees scattered all around the playground. Then, the students sat around the olive tree and drew its trunk, branches, fruits and leaves. They did a great job!

SPRING IS BLOOMING

1st Grade students have been very busy in Science exploring the world around them, focusing on plants. They have learnt about different types of flowers, such as lilies, daisies, roses and sunflowers. Last Friday, they used glitter EVA foam to make a flower. These flowers will look great in flowerpots!

EUROPEAN UNION PROJECTS

Our 6th grade students have been working on a very special project about the European Union. They were divided into groups and each of them had to find some information about the EU countries and Institutions. Our aim for them was to enjoy the process and improve their knowledge about the EU. The result has been great!

MELTING ICE

Which of these elements (salt, sugar, a cloth or warm hand) will melt the ice faster? First grade students have discovered the answer! Warm hands melt the ice faster, but salt does a really nice job too!
