THANKSGIVING CELEBRATION










Here are some pictures of Thanksgiving Celebration at our school last Thursday. As you can see, we cooked lots of food to taste on this traditional day: stuffing, cramberry sauce, apple sauce, pumpkin pie, carrot pie, and mashed potatoes. Maggie explained to us the history and the importance that this day has for the Americans and then, all of us could eat the typical food of the day.
As for the Thanksgiving Quiz, the winners were Estrella Jiménez Arroba, Michelle Rabadán de Sousa, Aitana Fernández and Mar Sánchez Domenech in 2º year of ESO . Alba Benito Kaesbach and Azahara Layna in 1st year of ESO. Most students in the bilingual group of 3º ESO did it quiet well too (Martín Gómez Terol, Sergio García, Roberto Granda..). The prizes were some American sweets and some rubber bracelets. ¡Enhorabuena a los ganadores y gracias a todos por asistir!
Y ahora, una pregunta para ver si habéis aprendido cosas sobre el día de acción de gracias: What is the last float of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade? Esperamos vuestras respuestas como comentarios a la entrada.

CINECLUB: 12 ANGRY MEN




On Wednesday November 24th, the classical film 12 Angry Men, translated into Spanish as Doce hombres sin piedad, will be proyected in our cineclub.


It is a film released in 1957 and directed by Sidney Lumet. The protagonist role is played by Hery Fonda and the film was nominated for 3 oscars and won 16 awards.


Es una apasionante película del género de juicios, en la que vemos como un jurado debate sobre la inocencia de un joven asesino que a todas luces parece culpable. One of the jurors, Henry Fonda, encourages the rest of the jury to think for themselves instead of trusting appearances.


La película está basada en una obra teatral y toda la acción transcurre en la sala de deliberación del jurado. Sin embargo, su ritmo es trepidante. ¡No os la perdáis! Don't miss it!
Remeber: November 24th at 5 pm in room A027
Recordad: El 24 de noviembre a las 5 de la tarde en el aula A027

END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR


The last English activity we planned to finish the school year was the performance of the play The Bully on June 22nd.
Entre el público asistente se encontraba la Delegada Provincial de Eduación ,Reyes Estévez, y la Asesora Provincial de Plurilingüismo, Susana Urueña, quienes felicitaron a todos los miembros del grupo de teatro por el trabajo realizado.
The performance was a success, and after it, some of the school students, who had seen the play, asked questions to our actors and actresses about the drama group, the play etc.
Queremos agradecer a nuestras dos invitadas que encontrasen un hueco en su apretada agenda para ver nuestra representación. Para nuestro grupo de teatro representó muchísimo que la máxima autoridad provincial de educación y la asesora de plurilingüismo reconocieran el trabajo realizado por nuestro grupo de teatro.
The two English teachers in charge of the drama group ,Rosa Pinilla and Olga Alvaro, would also like to thank their colleagues of the English Department as they gave them a wonderful bunch of flowers. They have been very nice supporting us in all the activities we have organised.
Después de esta bonita despedida de curso, queremos desearos a todos un feliz verano y esperamos volver a reencontrarnos en septiembre. So, enjoy the summer holidays , don't forget your English and we hope to see all of you in the activities we will organise next year. SEE YOU IN SEPTEMBER!! ¡FELIZ VERANO!

SCHOOL TRIP TO ALMAGRO
















On May 19th, the students of the school drama group, ganadores del primer premio regional de teatro en lengua extranjera con la obra The Bully, went to Almagro to see the classical Spanish play Don Juan Tenorio en el famoso Corral de Comedias de la ciudad manchega.

This outing was the prize for the enormous effort our students have done, rehearsing during break periods and some Friday afternoons and adding to their homework the extra task of memorizing their roles in English.

A pesar de que el viaje fue un poco largo y de que nos tocó un día muy caluroso, all the components of the drama group spent a wonderful day visiting the town, watching the performance and talking to the actors at the end of the play.
For our actors and actresses: En nombre de Rosa y mío (Olga) , esperamos que esta visita, organizada como premio a vuestro esfuerzo en el grupo de teatro, la recordéis siempre y que os ayude a seguir manteniendo vivo el gusanillo del teatro.

QUESTIONS OF THE 3rd WEEK: SCORES











Here you are the answers for the 3rd week's questions:


1-Pandora 2- Touch, Smell, Taste, Sight, Hearing 3-About 1.28 secs

4-Stratosphere. The stratosphere contains ozone, so “ozone layer” could be a right answer as well.

5-The properties of magnetism. 6-That’s just enough! 7-La Coruña

8-The Camino de Santiago (Saint James's Way) 9-Iribú, Irene Burgos

10. The answer is: the surface of the lighter liquid in the left side of the U-tube will be above that of the water in the right side of the tube because the fluid in the left side of the U-tube is lighter than water. A taller column of the lighter liquid will be required to create the same pressure at the bottom of the U-tube.

As you can see, some of the questions were really difficult, but most people managed to answer them in the right way. Here you are the scores and remember, there is only one week left!!! ¡¡Solamente queda una semana para terminar el concurso!!
