The teachers Miss Silvia and Miss Kelly proposed the students of 3 ESO to bake some delicious Christmas cookies. Everyone was really excited so on Wednesday 19th, both classes got together and went to the dining hall with the ingredients that we had bought few days ago. The classes were split in small groups and we could either make crunchy chocolate cereals or orange Christmas biscuits. The process was very messy but fun.
For the crunchy chocolate cereals, we had to melt the chocolate and mix it with the rice crispy cereal and place them in small cupcake holders. To finish them off, they had to be put in the fridge to set. And for the orange Christmas cookies, each group had to mix flour, sunflower oil, orange juice, baking powder and sugar to make the dough. We shaped them into stars and Christmas trees and finally decorated them with colourful sprinkles. To bake them, we had to put them in the oven for about an hour.
Our baking turned out very yummy and successful, so we shared them with the teachers and other students.
It was a good experience and we all learned new cooking vocabulary.

Cuando nos preguntamos cómo está influyendo la Ciencia y la Tecnología, ahora, en nuestras vidas no es fácil responder, sobre todo si tan sólo cuentas con 15 años. Para responder de manera fundamentada se necesita tener una perspectiva amplia y ver cómo han evolucionado los aspectos más importantes de toda una sociedad y de qué manera han influido los avances científico-tecnológicos en todo el mundo. Este curso, en la asignatura de Trabajo Monográfico de Investigación, los alumnos de 4º ESO estamos desarrollando un proyecto con otros alumnos de Suecia, Francia y Holanda, dentro del programa Comenius Project 2011-13.
Varios equipos, formados por cuatro alumnos cada uno, hemos trabajado los temas de la medicina, robótica, artes visuales, construcción, biología, fuerzas de seguridad, industria, etc para abarcar el mayor número de campos posible que nos dieran una visión amplia acerca de nuestro tema de investigación. No cabe duda de que el mundo de las telecomunicaciones ha revolucionado la manera de vivir. Nuestra forma de relacionaros, informarnos y aprender ha cambiado muchísimo y nuestro video refleja algunos de estos aspectos. Pero también hemos modificado la forma de alimentarnos y la manera de ver el espacio que nos rodea.
La primera conferencia que ha reunido a alumnos de los diferentes colegios se ha producido en Van der Capellen, un colegio de Zölle (Holanda). Allí hemos presentado parte de nuestro trabajo como primeras reflexiones acerca del tema planteado más arriba. El video que aparece bajo estas líneas ha sido realizado por nuestros alumnos como un ejercicio de cómo vemos la actualidad.
In English lessons, 4th of ESO A students have decided to pay tribute to one of the most famous British band in history, The Beatles, by making a video recording and explaining briefly their history. In this video they also name some of their most famous songs like ‘Penny Lane’, ‘Let It Be’, ‘All You Need Is Love’ and ‘Help’. This last song is the one that they have performed dancing and singing here at school. They prectised for three days and made several shootings. The filming and video editing has also be done by the tudents and they have dedicated their efforts as well as their time to work cooperatively and, of course, to learn and have a good time with this entertaining and enriching activity.

Beverly Round, your English teacher, has left us a perfect example of why the English language has one serious headache when someone is about to study. But this is no excuse to continue working and learning English
Let’s face it!
English is a crazy language. There is no egg ineggplant, nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren’t invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren’t sweet, are meat. We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig. English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race, which, of course, is not a race at all. That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when thelights are out, they are invisible.
Usual guest of belfries (campanarios) and noisy towers, this nocturnal bird is commonly known by its sedentary life. It’s got a very keen sense of hearing (el oído muy fino), however, its sight is rarely developed. Nevertheless (a pesar de todo), the ability to get its neck turned (capacidad de girar su cuello) reaches up to 270º, fact that makes it possible to lie in wait for a long time (permanecer al acecho) without hardly changing its position.
What, how others will never tell you is a blog where it's told tons of interesting, cool stuff over the world that nobody tells. By an easy English, this blog will fascinate you and keep your language skills trained with its amazing and sometimes mad contents. In addition, we will publish our experiences in English classes!
