Language Assistants on the Global Pandemic

The third term of the school year has been strange to say the least. Here the Language Assistants talk a little about their experiences and what has been going on in their own countries. We’re all wishing that you have a fantastic summer! Laura will see you all in the autumn, but unfortunately Ellen and Rhianne won’t be with us again next year. In their videos they also say goodbye to everyone and we hope our paths will cross in the future!

 

 

 

LA SENDA DEBATE

The last day before school was cancelled the 4°ESO students competed in a in-school tournament to see who would be moving on to the Comunidad de Madrid Debate Tournament. Thank you to all the students for all their hard work, English teachers Mar and Irene, and Ellen the Language Assistant for their continued support! We are still hopeful that the real tournament will be taking place, even if it has to be virtual.

The Renaissance

The students in 3°D have worked really hard on their Renaissance presentations. They invited students from 1°ESO to come in and watch their presentations. The students from 1°ESO had to answer questions and interact with the older students. It was enjoyable for everyone and the students had a great time interacting with each other! In some cases there were also sweets for correct answers or typical food from the time period!
