For the second time now, our students are going to create and present a Project in which they have to prepare a guidebook of a city of their choice. The project features real-world contexts, tasks and tools that students need to access in order to develop their projects. Not only will they prepare informational leaflets but also PowerPoint presentations to explain the whole project to the rest of the class. 

If you are a 2nd year ESO student, you can find the leaflet template by clicking on the following link. You will be able to download it as a Word Document and customize it. 



As we are used to doing every year, 1º, 2º, 3º and 4º ESO CLIL students went to ‘Espacio Nebrija Escénico’ in order to watch the theatrical adaptation of the novel entitled ‘Sleepy Hollow’.

They really enjoyed the play and it was the perfect way to practise their listening skills in a more dynamic way.

Since it was an ‘Eina D’escola’ adaptation, after watching the play the students were explained the original storyline in class. They also watched a video on ‘Top Ten Notes: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow’ that you can enjoy as well now by clicking on the following video. Then, we discussed the main differences between the theatrical adaptation and the original plot.




On the last 20th December, we celebrated our traditional Christmas Concert. In this occasion we were visited by two professional jazz musicians, these being, Jesús Gea (double bass) and Raúl Pérez (drums).

Over the first part of the show they played, together with our teacher Javier Bermejo at the piano, some easy examples of the use of improvisation in jazz. They started playing the well-known song "Happy Birthday", and improvised along with it. The purpose of this song was to differentiate the main melody ("head" in jazz) from the improvisation itself. Afterwards, some students were asked to play the instruments (xylophones) with the band, improvising on the famous jazz tune "C Jam Blues", by the composer Duke Ellington.

The second part of the event was dedicated entirely to pop songs and Christmas carols. The students played the main role of the scene through singing. Solo, duo and choral performances of a great level took place in front of a public formed by 250 people, mostly First and Second year of ESO students. This young audience listened carefully to the great performances of the soloists: Thalía Abdeljabbar, Jeniffer Soto, Sofía García, Maria Dolores Férez, Georgina Martinez, Enrique Mancilla and Jessica Beltrán. The Bilingual students sang in English, while Jessica Beltran delighted everybody with a passionate version of the traditional "Madre en la puerta hay un niño", in flamenco style.

The words of Jesus Gea describe the great feeling of that morning: " Really good activity, according to the audience’s enthusiasm. Great job done by the Music Department, which resulted in the high musical level and perfect pitching achieved by the students and their commitment".

We ended the concert with the great John Lenon's "So this is Christmas" song, which was sung by our Choir. While singing this great piece, all of us realized the hard work of the previous weeks had been worth it.
