Taking advantage of google earth pro (now free!!) and tour builder as main tools for promoting active learning, critical thinking, collaborative work and of course creativity, fouth level students want to take us on an incredible journey all around the Earth to discover wonderful places of geological interest in our planet.
– Tour Builder is a new way to show people the places you’ve visited and the experiences you had along the way using Google Earth. It lets you pick the locations right on the map, add in photos, text, and video, and then share your creation.
Click here to see the incredible tour created by Ana, Alba, Nerea and Elisa : Tour builder
– Google earth is now even better! With the pro version you can set up a tour and make a movie that follows the camera viewpoint to and from multiple locations. Then you can record the entire tour without interruption. Once you finish recording and have saved your movie file, you can make the file available on a web site, use it in a presentation, or send it via email.
See what Sara, Cristina and Alberto have done!
Alberto Sombria, a former student from our school , who has been doing his pre-service training for his master in Education in our school this spring term , was interviewed by Angela Cruz, Teresa Nieto and Román Olmos from 2D. Learn about the life of an English Philology student in the last year of his formal educational period and his memories from his schooldays.
Not all 15 year old students dare to apply for a grant to go to study to Canada for a whole year. Don’t worry, I’m sure you will have some chances in life when you will feel you are ready to do something important, something that really matters to you…until then, just keep on trying!
But today, I would like to congratulate Paula García Sacristán, our brave 4th level student who has got a scholarship to go to study 1 º Bachillerato next year in Canada. Last year it was our former student Marina López, who got it.
What are the keys to get such a wonderful experience in life, something that Marina and Paula agree that you will never forget?
These two girls have got of course very high marks, but there is much more than simply that. They are very dedicated, organized, conscientious students who always work the hardest they can and never give up. As most people, it is not that they get everything at first try, but they always persevere. Perseverance is in my opinion very important in life… They are also very generous and share ideas with other people. They work great in a team! And last, but not least, they are great sport girls! Because not everything in life is just studying, a healthy mind in a healthy body, right?
If you really want something in life, work hard, enjoy what you do and go for it!
Congratulations Paula! You really deserve it!
Watch the interview that Yaiza and Nerea from 4ºA made to our Australian assistant Dao. You are going to know lots of things about her and about her experience in Valladolid. Enjoy it!
Let’s begin a new challenge based on historical photographs!!!
Up to Thursday 14th May you could leave your comment identifying the moment in History this picture belongs to and as many details as you can about it.
Do you dare????
Listen to 1 ESO students explaining it! They also wanted to investigate the equivalent units between volume and capacity by carrying out a small experiment in which they built two cubes of different volumes!
The main goal of this project is to get to know the main biomes worldwide, their main characteristics and the relationship with climates and the importance of preserving biodiversity.
In this new cross-disciplinary project (involving Geography, English and Science departments), students had to search information, think critically, work collaboratively, show rigorous learning, connect it to the world outside and communicate their findings effectively.
It is part of the work we are doing for the TC4PI (Teacher competences for plurilingual integration) project we are taken part in. This second term it was focused on learner autonomy in cross-disciplinary projects.
The final task was to create an interactive image about terrestrial biomes and here you have some examples of our students’ work.
It’s said that an image is worth more than a million words, but in my opinion, these interactive images are also worth a lot!

First level students at work!
Great models and good explanations!
When it comes to thinking about if you should start smoking or not, say simply NO!
If you are already a smoker, this is a unique opportunity to quit!
There are so many wonderful ways to enjoy life to the full!
