During this second term, Alex, a 6th grade student from Calypso, developed a project based on rugby for the English subject.

The idea of the project came out from Alex’s interests. He is a huge fan of rugby and he practices this sport in his free time. Plus, one of the most important tournaments of rugby, the Six Nations, started in February so it was the perfect occasion to work on it.

Alex’s project involved different tasks in which he had to put in practice the different skills of the English language (listening, reading, writing and speaking). However, what all these tasks demanded was a huge creative and imaginative effort.

A Sports News TV programme, a sports article (which would be later used to narrate the highlights of a rugby match) and video tutorials for his classmates to learn some concepts about rugby where the main aspects that are included in the final product of his work.

Alex and his English teacher, Alberto Gómez, are more than glad to share this project with everyone at school and they really hope we all like it.

Durant la setmana passada, a l’àrea d’anglès, els alumnes de diversos cursos de l’etapa d’Educació Primària van realitzar diferents activitats relacionades amb la festivitat de Halloween. 

El resultat d’aquestes tasques van ser uns treballs manuals que, en conjunt, han servit per transformar l’entrada de l’Escola en un racó terrorífic i fantasmagòric que espantaria petits i grans.

La col·laboració dels alumnes i els mestres de tota l’etapa faran que el dia 31 d’octubre sigui una data difícil d’oblidar aquest curs pels nostres alumnes. Si us hi atreviu, esteu tots convidats a donar una ullada!

This morning our first transnational project meetings and learning activities have been taking place in Sitia, Greece.

The first meeting has been essential for discussing all the aspects of the project, share and define responsibilities, preparing the evaluation plan and the plan how to measure the impact.  Our 4rt ESO students, Bruna Elias and Emma Marti, have introduced our country and school in front of our European Partners fostering educational cooperation and collaboration.

The fundamental  aim of this meeting is to produce synergy for outcomes that are only possible by working with others.Communication allows all the participants to develop their understanding of the diversity of European cultures and languages, learn from each other and helps students acquire competences.

A Creta (Grècia), hem iniciat aquest curs  l’Erasmus K2 amb el projecte “Escola inclusiva”. Bon viatge ambaixadores!

On Thursday 5th October, we held at Garbí – Pere Vergés Esplugues our annual Cambridge Ceremony. This year we had the presence of Mr. Tom Wogan from Exams Cataluña, who reflected on the importance of learning English in a fun and motivating way.

Afterwards, the results of the CLIL activity during the 2016-2017 academic year were presented. The school’s CLIL approach follows the premise of using English as a vehicular language to gain knowledge on other areas. During last academic year, students at Garbí – Pere Vergés participated in an average of 83 hours of CLIL activities, including class discussions, watching movies, reading articles and writing essays, among other activities. These 83 hours, added to an average of 140 hours of English classes, represent approximately 25% of English exposure throughout the whole year’s teaching hours.

We sincerely believe that this is how our students will integrate the use of English into their everyday life. As a result, more than 200 diplomas were awarded at this year’s ceremony. Success is our commitment: we consider that English must be learnt at school and this is why we will continue working in order to give the most meaningful and exemplary education to our students.

From the Àmbit de Llengües i Comunicació, we would like to thank Mr. Wogan, the school’s management team, teachers and, of course, families and students for joining us during this celebration.

Let’s keep working together!
