This 3rd term, some of our Secondary Education and Baccalaureate students will be sitting the official Cambridge Examinations, which will take place at our school on Friday 5th May (speaking) and Saturday  6th May (writing, listening and reading). 

These examinations will allow our students to demonstrate their level of proficiency in English to the rest of the world, since Cambridge certifications are recognised by thousands of universities, governments and employers. 

Everyone has been working very hard throughout the whole course, and we are sure they will do a great job! Good luck!

captura-de-pantalla-2017-01-20-a-les-18-54-51Els alumnes d’EI5 han realitzat un projecte de treball comú que ha acabat amb un producte final sorprenent: la creació d’un METRO de dues línies.

Amb un entusiasme creixent, els nens han anat assimilant coneixements de manera significativa i transversal tot desenvolupant les seves capacitats i adquirint unes estratègies imprescindibles pel procés d’aprenentatge.

Amb un acte molt solemne, el METRO ha quedat inaugurat donant pas a una activitat en cooperació basada en el desplaçament per les dues línies. Per poder realitzar els diversos trajectes, han hagut de millorar les seves habilitats  en aspectes com ara l’orientació, la interpretació d’esquemes i el domini de l’espai, entre altres. Encara caldrà molta pràctica ja que hauran de mostrar la seva obra als companys d’Educació Infantil i també a alguns nivells de Primària.

Com és habitual a l’Escola, els nois de  3r d’ESO  han col·laborat amb els més petits posant la Tecnologia al servei de l’aprenentatge. Aquest ha estat un exemple més de participació i cooperació entre diferents etapes.
