  • "The Demon Headmaster"

 

Bilingual students in 1st ESO read the Oxford playscript "The Demon Headmaster" based on the original novel by Gillian Cross. We read out the play in class and after that students in groups adapted the original script and wrote their own play scripts to act out. They had great fun and did a fabulous job! 

 
  • Frankenstein

This third term bilingual students in 3rd ESO have been reading and working collaboratively on different taks around the Gothic novel Frankenstein, whose 200 anniversary we celebrate this year. Every week students have discussed important themes in Frankenstein such as human nature, emotions, organ harvesting, stem cells, aliniation in society, the romantic hero...

They also worked on different graphic organizers such as a timeline, a map with the settings in the story, events and their consequences, character portraits...

Finally, the class represented the trial to Victor Frankenstein for his liability in the all the crimes.

Here is some of the evidence of all the work.

  • Free Topic Presentations

As final task of the year, students in 3rd ESO Advanced English were given the chance to express themselves on any topic of their interest. Indeed they knew how to catch their audience interest and here are a few of their best presentations.

  • Sonnet 18: Remix

Students in 3rd ESO Advanced English have been studying Shakespeare this term and they have learned about the historical period of the Renaissance in England, they have read Hamlet and several of Shakespeare's sonnets. After analyzing Sonnet 18 they were asked to write their own versions of the poem and this is what they came up with, which, I think, is beautiful and shows that encouraging students to put their creativity into action always pays off.

  • The Boy in the Dress: Fakebook Projects

 

I need to share with you the wonderful project carried out by students in 1st ESO bilingual section while reading the delightful book "The Boy in the Dress" by David Walliams.

In groups, they were assigned a different character in the book and they had to create that character's Facebook page using Fakebook. It's been a pleasure to see over the weeks how the pages started to grow with lots of posts,  how the students gave life to their characters out of the book and how each character interacted with other characters in Fakebook. 

Their creativity and imagination are beyond any doubt as you can see below.  I think we have all had great fun while reading a great book.

  • G.C. Conference at IES Parque de Lisboa

Today we had the opportunity to go to one of our neighbouring high schools to hold a Conference with the students from both schools. 

The activity was really worth it since we had the chance to listen to other delegations and change views with other assistants. 

Our students rose to the occasion and showed their commitment to the project by taking part in the debates, giving speeches, making resolutions and amendments and especially, by showing a great attitude.

We'd like to thank IES Parque de Lisboa for making this possible. 

You can watch their opening speeches and some pictures below !

  • Fairytales

Students in 1st ESO have read and analyzed the plot in several classic fairytales. Then, working collaboratively in Google Presentations, they came up with these great slideshows which they used as visual support to present their fairytales to the class. Not bad at all for a first presentation...
