Artist's Challenge: our students play with shadows as the photografer Lee Friedlander.


Your shadow, like a faithful dog, is always at your side, a companion that demands nothing of you and, in return requires no attention.

Your shadow seems to just tag along. But you animate it; you are its director .

Our students haver realized a photographic work based on the American artist Lee Friedlander who was always on the lookout for new ways to see what trouble his shadow can get into, and how much fun we can have watching it.

After taking the pictures the students  have practiced how to describe  them and answered questions as which was the intention that they had , where and when they took the picture or how they think the viewer will react to the picture.

Natural Sciences

1st ESO students learn the cell parts with a CLIL task.

In a mutual dictation, the students are divided into pairs of student As and student Bs and then each given the relevant worksheet, either A or B.
The aim of the activity is to dictate their information to each other in order to get the complete text.
It is great for encouraging learners to cooperate together and also has a fun puzzle element which keeps motivation up. It provides integrated skills practice as students are reading, speaking, listening and writing all in the one activity.

Arts and Crafts' 1st ESO students learn the seven Elements of Art making a collective Visual Art Dictionary.

How well can you describe an artwork? Beautiful, interesting, colourful... but... can you describe its colors, lines, textures or shapes?

In this unit students are learning specific vocabulary about the seven Elements of Art (Line, Color, Value, Texture, Space, Form and Shape) and are applying them into a personal illustration.

Every student has created a double page illustrating a different concept related to an Element of Art and following the same layout. In the end they will put together all pages and will create a cover. It will be their Collective Visual Art Dictionary!

Here you can see some students preparing their presentations:

Here they are showing their works:

In their presentations, students described their partner's work using the specific vocabulary they had learnt.

Once we finish the presentations, we will show you the final Visual Dictionary. For now, you can see its different parts as follows:

POL LUPI’S TRAVEL: A new CLIL Task in Social Sciences classroom

It’s XIV century and Pinós’ lord needs a great investment in order to enlarge Sant Esteve church in Granollers city. To succeed in his project, Pinós’ lord needs help from all Granollers’ traders. They will help economically their lord to build the church their city deserves. The merchant Pol Lupi together with the 1st grade students have been travelling through Europe in order to gain money for their Lord.

Moreover, they also played other historical roles as the journalist Stanley, the army explorer Lewis or Captain James Cook in order to achieve geographical knowledge from all around the world through the explorers voyages. Here some pics of the students working on the project:

Math GEP - I need a larger recipe!!!

Our 1st ESO students have made a project about increasing the size of a recipe to accommodate a larger group of people using what they know about proportionality. This project have been very useful to give them real-world math knowledge.

Students have worked in pairs and have designed a poster showing all of the necessary information. Finally, they have presented their results to the class.

Some of them have shown to be very cretaives, using QR codes, recording videos and even cooking the recipe for the whole class!
