Another year over…and a new one just begun!

Yes! Now that I know which levels I’ll be teaching this year everything seems to be taking shape again. I’m happy because I’m gonna go on with the 3º ESO students that I’ve been teaching since they were in 1º ESO. With them, feelings mix sometimes between those of a teacher and of a mother (nervous laugh).
I’ve decided to take on a 1º ESO group because I like this age. They come to school a bit wary of what they are going to find and I, and my other fellow teachers, are responsible for showing them the way and making them feel at home.
I’m also teaching a 1º bachillerato group, which is nice. The contact with older students is always nice and necessary, in my case anyway. I missed that age last year so….there I go again.
Last but not least, I’ll also be helping 2º ESO students to love the English language and its culture. Well at least I’ll try!

A BIG BIG HUGE WELCOME TO ALL MY STUDENTS THIS YEAR. LET THE FUN BEGIN AND REMEMBER THAT “ENGLISH IS WHERE YOUR HEART IS”!

Evaluation of the school year

The year is coming to an end and I would really appreciate it if you took a little time to do the following questionnaire so that I can try to improve those things which need improving for the coming years. It also includes some questions for your parents because their opinion is important too. Thanks a lot for another fantastic year and I really hope you have enjoyed yourselves as much as I have.

We talk freedom!

We talk freedom at school because we believe education is one of the best ways to fight against different types of slavery. We would like to take the opportunity to show our rejection towards the kidnapping of the girls in Nigeria.

Bring back our girls

These are the students’ oral presentations of their work on different types of slavery:

¡Otra alegría!

¡Por segunda vez este curso estamos de enhorabuena! Nos vuelven a reconocer, especialmente a vosotros por el gran esfuerzo que habéis hecho y que seguís haciendo a poco más de un mes de terminar las clases, el trabajo realizado. Nuestro blog ha quedado finalista en la VIII Edición de Premio Espiral de Edublogs 2014. Aunque el fallo final es el 17 de mayo, a nosotros nos llena de orgullo el hecho de estar ahí, rodeados de otros maravillosos blogs educativos que demuestran, una vez más, que mucha gente apuesta por un cambio metodológico en aras de una mayor calidad educativa.

Nos gustaría dar las gracias a la organización y al jurado por considerar que estamos al nivel de otros compañeros a los que seguimos y admiramos y de los que aprendemos todos los días. Aprovechamos también para desearles mucha suerte a todos los finalistas.

Freedom for 2º ESO

After a loooong second term learning about different types of slavery, from the past with the plantations in the southern states of North America up to nowadays with modern ways of slavery, we decided that one of the best ways to round off this topic was to make a video in which you had to express what freedom means to you. Many of you agree that freedom is to be able to do whatever you want, to go wherever you please, to express yourselves freely, among other things. Some of your pics are great. Thanks again for your effort and motivation to learn in many other ways rather than just a textbook. Enjoy your work:

Slavery Nowadays

During the second term you have been reading about what life was like on American plantations for black slaves. You also tried to reflect on different types of slavery nowadays because, sadly, there are still people deprived of freedom all over the world and education is the best weapon to fight against this.

2º C has created this fantastic wall. Click on the image to open it.

2º B, on the other hand, has been doing some research on different types of modern day slavery. They have also suggested ways to prevent them. Here is the result:
