ENGLISH DAY RECAP

English Day was a success!  The annual event had all students involved. Everyone celebrated the importance of the English language through engaging exercises. Ranging from the Stone Age to modern and futuristic times, students were able to become creative with such activities like designing their own pirate telescopes and coat of arms. 
 
The students from  1ESO were responsible for the Stone Age period. They  presented the importance of the Stone Age weapons and taught the younger primary students how to make a bow and arrow from only an ice pop stick, dental floss and cotton buds. Other students presented the importance of the rock art as the origin of human emotions in art and the last group had the younger students paint their very own rocks while helping them colour it according to how they feel that day. 
2ESO created activties from the Middle Ages. Similarily to 1ESO, the four groups had a wide range of fun activities for the younger students. From presenting the importance of the Middle Ages, to creating a cardboard castle, students were able to design their own coat of arms and sundial, the earliest way of telling time, created from paper plates.
 
The 3ESO students taught the other students about the Roman Times. Such activities like a game based on Roman numerals was a hit! Students enjoyed the Roman jewlery craft and became experts on the Roman army. How cool are these?
 
Ahoy Matey! Lets become pirates for a day! 4ESO students had a lot of fun teaching the others about pirates! They designed their own activities from creating eyepatches to pirate telescopes and treasure maps.
 
1batxillerat taught the students about the Modern Age and futuristic times through the creation of an escape room and hangman game with vocabulary from the Modern Age. Students also had the chance of becoming painters of the Modern Age by recreating their own art. 
 
English Day has become a fantastic way to get the entire school involved. All students enjoyed the celebration and learnt about the time periods of history while having a blast!  Fantastic job!

3, 2, 1… workshop!!

Comencem el projecte de Literatura Castellana i Llengua Anglesa ‘Just 100 years ago. Del realismo a las vanguardias’ amb una mica de cinema i una cita. Els personatges de ‘Midnight in Paris’ ens han obert la porta d’aquest viatge literari. Chesterton ens ha fet pensar: ‘Realism is simply Romanticism that has lost its reason… that is its reason for existing.’ Moltes ganes de continuar!

Exposició de Dibuix Artístic

Al vestíbul de l’Escola ja podeu veure una petita exposició dels alumnes de 1r de Batxillerat Artístic.

Es tracta de la mateixa imatge tractada de manera diferent. A un costat podem veure una imatge amb contorns tancats i molt marcats, mentre que al costat veiem com l’interior de la imatge es barreja en certs punts amb el fons. Aquestes doncs, són formes obertes.

Tècniques graficoplàstiques

El collage és el procediment que permet enganxar (encolar) diferents materials un al costat de l’altre formant una nova composició. Aquests materials són generalment plans (papers de diferents tipus, cartrons,…. ) però poden també tenir gruixària i textura. Els primers que introduïren aquest procediment en les seves obresforen els pintors cubistes, Picasso i Braque, que en lesseves pintures a l’oli i començaren a barrejar fragments d’objectes reals (paper de diari, papers estampats, arpillera,…). Aquest gest suposava, per un costat, un trencament amb els mètodes convencionalsi un canvi conceptual en la manera de pensar el quadre, de mirar-lo i interpretar-lo. I fins i tot suposava canvi en la manera d’entendre el mateix art. Aqui podem veure alguns treballs que s’han fet a classe.
