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!

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!
