Stories to Stay Awake

     Una curiosa iniciativa más, salida de las actividades del día de Halloween: esta vez se trata de un audio-libro de historias de terror en versiones en español e inglés realizado por los alumnos de primero de la profesora Marisa para la actividad de música.

     Our younger pupils have developed an amazing work with the help of their music teacher Marisa. Stories to Stay Awake (Historias para no Dormir) is a compilation of horror tales both in Spanish and English, written in the form of a book and also recorded as audio tales to really make us all freak out.

     Why don't you read it? (Link below)

It's Halloweeeeeeeen

   El pasado martes 31 de octubre adelantamos unas horas la noche de Halloween para dar los premios a los mejores trabajos de los distintos concursos organizados por los de departamentos de inglés y bilingüismo con motivo de dicha festividad.

     Zombies, vampires, ghosts, skeletons and goblins (in other words, our ESO4 students) surprised all our younger students when unexpectedly broke into their classrooms to take them to the gym... it was a funny way to give the prizes for the different contest organized by Bilingualism and the English Language department. Best Jack O´Lantern (ESO1), Best "Create your Monster" composition (ESO1 and 2) or Best Twitter Horror Tale (ESO3 and 4), you can read it in one of the pictures of this post, were awarded in such a ghostly environment. After the ceremony, all kids were able to buy cakes and cookies from their older monster schoolmates (in order to raise funds for the school trip).

Here´s Ben

      Como cada curso desde que somos centro bilingüe hemos recibido a nuestro auxiliar de conversación de lengua inglesa nativo. Este curso trabajaremos junto al compañero Ben Jones, procedente de Gales; seguro que será una gran ayuda que, al mismo tiempo, él también aprenderá mucho de esta experiencia ¡Bienvenido!

      Ben Jones comes from Wales and he is 21-year-old who loves sports (including Spanish football) and music, after his music studies he is an expert on piano and drums. It is not his first time in our country and he likes it very much so that he decided to come around and give us a hand.

     An important part of the bilingual program in Andalusian schools is the assistance by a native English speaker so that every year we receive some girl or boy ready to learn a lot about our country, costumes and educational daily life as our student have a chance to listen and talk to someone from an English-speaking country and learn about their culture.

      He will stay with us until May and he will be working with our Maths, Geography, Sciences, Music and Technology teachers. All our staff welcomed him and, as we did the last two years, our library project coordinator, Ms.Olivia Cózar, gave him a welcome gift in the name of our school:  an abridged version of El Cantar de Mio Cid, to start with Spanish literature.

     We are sure that he will enjoy his stay and our school will be very lucky to have him with us.
