HALLOWEEN CELEBRATION









These are the pictures of the Halloween celebration held at our school this morning. Our school assistant, Sophie, turned into a good witch who told us about the origin of this festivity and how she celebrates it at home. We even had the opportunity to see a picture of her when she was a little girl dressed up like a vampire.
There was also a contest and lots of horrific sweet prizes as bloody fingers, skulls, etc. for the winners.  Some students brought scary masks and they got  prizes too.  
In a nutshell, all of us learnt more things about Halloween and had some fun!!! 
And now one question: Can you remember any of the Halloween characters Sophie mentioned ? If you write them below as a comment, you will have another little surprise.

VISIT TO SHAKESPEARE EXHIBITION




On May 2nd and 3rd the students of the 3rd and 4th year of ESO in the bilingual classes visited an exhibition on William Shakespeare organised by Ibercaja, which included a guided tour in English with  a native speaker. The outing was very successful as the students had the opportunity to practise their listening skills for one and a half hours and to learn lots of things about "the bard of Avon" . Among other things, our students could  also try the special effects used at the time, solve some puzzles on Shakespeare's plays  or  guess what play some film extracts belonged to. It was rewarding to see that they participated enthusiastically and used their comunicative skills  in the English language rather  effectively.
In a nutshell, a fun as well as instructive experience that we wish we could repeat in the future as unfortunately there are very few  English speaking activities of this kind in our town.

NEXT FILM: JURASSIC PARK





The original science fiction adventure film directed by Steven Spielberg in 1993.  It has become a landmark in the the use of computer-generated images and its release gave rise to a dinosaur fever all around the world . The film gave his director his most important box-office success until then, surpassing  even " E.T. The Extraterrestrial". Spielberg's previous box-office hit.

Una película que definitivamente marcó una época y cuyas dos secuelas dan muestra del éxito de público que tuvo. Ganadora de tres premios "Oscar" en 1994 ( Mejores Efectos Visuales, Mejor Sonido, Mejor Edición de Sonido) , también convirtió en un best-seller la novela homónima de Michael Crichton en la que se basa.

  ON MAY 15TH  AT 5 PM IN ROOM A027

SAINT PATRICK'S CELEBRATION

 Here they are some pictures taken at Saint Patrick's celebration. As we promised,  all green-clad students were given a gift. Two of them  ( Daniel Torres and Bastian Aguirre)  had an extra gift due to their original Saint Patrick's dressing and hairstyling .
The winners of Saint Patrick's 10-question quiz were also rewarded with some green green prizes. The latter were: 
 Susana Carrillo, Ane Fernández, Laura Martínez and Esteban Segura (2º ESO).

Estrella Jiménez  and Nerea Oñoro ( 4º ESO

But the most important thing in this celebration was the speech given by Peter MacGrath, teacher at EOI in Guadalajara, English by nationality but with lots of Irish ancestors in his family ,who was so kind as to come to our school to tell us more about the history of Saint Patrick. We are really  grateful to him as he gave our students the opportunity to listen to a native speaker . After this, some students in 2º ESO performed an Irish dance that was the perfect finale for our particular Saint Patrick's Day celebration.
