Back to Barcelona

What an exciting journey it has been so far! We have nothing but kind words to our german friends. Thank you for treating us with so much love. It has been an amazing week we won’t forget.

We come back to Barcelona with lots of great memories from the exchange. We are willing to get ready for the second part in Olesa. We really hope you can enjoy your visit here as much as we did in Germany.

See you very soon 🙂

DAINA-TRITTAU: THIRD EXCHANGE

Yesterday we landed at Hamburg Airport. We could finally meet our new friends from Trittau and so we can say that the third exchange has officially started.

Today our hosts have prepared a welcoming ceremony for us at school. We’ve also met the best sights and important authorities of this beautiful town. It’s been great visiting the iconic watermill and meeting the mayor at the council with our exchange partners.

We are happy and excited to start this whole new adventure. We can’t wait to visit Hamburg tomorrow!

ENGLISH DAY RECAP

English Day was a success!  The annual event had all students involved. Everyone celebrated the importance of the English language through engaging exercises. Ranging from the Stone Age to modern and futuristic times, students were able to become creative with such activities like designing their own pirate telescopes and coat of arms. 
 
The students from  1ESO were responsible for the Stone Age period. They  presented the importance of the Stone Age weapons and taught the younger primary students how to make a bow and arrow from only an ice pop stick, dental floss and cotton buds. Other students presented the importance of the rock art as the origin of human emotions in art and the last group had the younger students paint their very own rocks while helping them colour it according to how they feel that day. 
2ESO created activties from the Middle Ages. Similarily to 1ESO, the four groups had a wide range of fun activities for the younger students. From presenting the importance of the Middle Ages, to creating a cardboard castle, students were able to design their own coat of arms and sundial, the earliest way of telling time, created from paper plates.
 
The 3ESO students taught the other students about the Roman Times. Such activities like a game based on Roman numerals was a hit! Students enjoyed the Roman jewlery craft and became experts on the Roman army. How cool are these?
 
Ahoy Matey! Lets become pirates for a day! 4ESO students had a lot of fun teaching the others about pirates! They designed their own activities from creating eyepatches to pirate telescopes and treasure maps.
 
1batxillerat taught the students about the Modern Age and futuristic times through the creation of an escape room and hangman game with vocabulary from the Modern Age. Students also had the chance of becoming painters of the Modern Age by recreating their own art. 
 
English Day has become a fantastic way to get the entire school involved. All students enjoyed the celebration and learnt about the time periods of history while having a blast!  Fantastic job!

Periodisme amb Mireia Baró

Els alumnes de 4ESO avui han rebut la visita de la Mireia Baró, ex-alumna de l’Escola i estudiant de Periodisme i Ciències Polítiques a la Universitat Pompeu Fabra. La Mireia ens ha explicat les principals tasques del periodista i els diferents enfocaments dels mitjans de comunicació. Una gran ajuda de cara al següent projecte de l’Àmbit de Llengües. Ha estat tot un plaer veure com ex-alumnes de l’Escola continuen el seu camí en el món professional i ens vénen a veure per ensenyar-nos tant. Moltes gràcies, Mireia!

Amic invisible literari a 4ESO

Els alumnes de 4ESO han aprofitat les hores prèvies a la festa de Sant Jordi per fer una activitat ben singular: un amic invisible literari. Han aprofitat la diada dels llibres i les roses per regalar-se les narracions i diàlegs sobre la llegenda del cavaller, el drac i la princesa que han estat creant durant algunes sessions del Projecte Llengües. Cada narració anava acompanyada d’una recomanació de lectura… segur que serà una gran ajuda per triar bé els llibres d’aquest 23 d’abril. Esperem que passeu tots una Diada ben bonica i ben plena de llibres i roses!IMG_5195 IMG_5196 IMG_5197

A 4ESO busquem feina!

Els alumnes de 4ESO ens hem posat a buscar feina! Durant les darreres setmanes, dins el Projecte d’Orientació que treballem a tutoria, hem rebut el suport del programa Transició Escola-Treball ofert per l’Ajuntament d’Olesa de Montserrat. Les xerrades que ens han ofert i les reflexions que hem fet a la classe ens han servit per analitzar el mercat laboral i començar a prendre consciència dels requisits d’accés que ens trobarem d’aquí a uns anys, alhora que ens hem pogut conèixer una mica més a fons per començar a perfilar els nostres futurs itineraris per al curs vinent. Aprofitant aquesta feina, des del Projecte de Llengües hem treballat els textos formals a partir de l’anàlisi i la creació de documents relacionats amb aquest àmbit. Així, ens hem agrupat per interessos professionals, hem consultat borses de treball, hem triat una oferta que ens interessés i hem dut a terme tot el procés administratiu: una instància per sol·licitar un certificat acadèmic, un certificat acadèmic, una carta de presentació i un currículum vitae. Sabíeu que tots aquests documents tenen una estructura formal molt similar en totes les llengües? Nosaltres ho hem pogut comprovar en català, castellà i anglès… com també ens hem adonat que, a partir d’ara, qualsevol detall és importantíssim per al currículum. D’aquí a uns anys, aquests documents amb personatges ficticis que ara hem creat per presentar a ofertes reals de treball duran els nostres noms. Ens fem grans!

Resoldre jeroglífics

Resoldre jeroglífics és un passatemps d’allò més entretingut. Ens proposa, a més, fer jocs de paraules i, per tant, ens serveix per a treballar, lúdicament, el nostre lèxic.

Els alumnes de 1ESO han treballat què són i què cal fer per resoldre els jeroglífics. Després, n’han creat uns quants que han ofert als alumnes de 5EP i 6EP.

Aquí en teniu una mostra. Els sabeu resoldre?
