Enjoying Poland and Spain with the five senses! (TC4PI)

It’s nearly the end of The TC4PI (Teacher Competences for Plurilingual Integration) project we have been working on during the last three years and along this week students and teachers at Ferrari High School have been so lucky to work with teachers from The Czech Republic,  Lithuania, Poland and Turkey. All of them wonderful!

We would like to thank all of them for their great work and for being so interested in sharing good practices with us.

Here you have just an example of what our activities have been like.


And here you can see the ppt we prepared to explain  the meaning of the different items to Alicja

And finally, our International team!

tc4piHasta siempre!

It’s back to school time or time to fly to the States?

Hello everybody!

Summer holidays are coming to an end and we would like to welcome students and teachers to Emilio Ferrari High school!

And what a better way to show you what we do here than present our first activity in the Bilingual Program this year! An amazing trip to Richmond, Virginia.

15 students starting 4º ESO this year are travelling with their teachers from today to 29 September to hopefully have the times of their lives!

We will use the blog to show you what they are doing.

So far, look at their sad faces just before leaving Madrid in the airport!

Happy flight!

What an incredible journey!

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!

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!
