PBL in Junior

On Thursday August 11 and Friday August 12, we had our first Open House, where our Junior students had the opportunity to present to the parents their projects carried out with PBL methodology.

These interdisciplinary projects focused on a variety of topics such as our Indigenous Peoples, Inventors, Discovery and Conquest, Solar System and Geometry.

We congratulate our students and their teachers for the great teamwork, the knowledge acquired and the command of English shown by the students in each class.

We would also like to thank each parent who was present at the school, witnessing the projects in the classroom, asking questions to the groups and giving their comments on the exit tickets, in which, in addition to expressing their congratulations, they had the opportunity to express their suggestions, which will undoubtedly contribute to our improvement for next year.

"Best reader of the month"

 

This year we have renewed the tradition of rewarding students who stand out not only for fulfilling the complementary or compulsory readings in the subjects of Spanish and English, but this award is a way to celebrate the taste and motivation they have for reading other books and subjects outside of school.

"Trade activity"

 

In our Unit ‘Discovery of America’, the students of 5th grade learnt this economic system called "trade". They learnt that this activity was the exchange of different products from the Far East during the 15th century. 

To put it into practice, each student brought different things from their homes, traded them in the school and at the end of the activity they gave their opinion about this experience. They felt very happy with their new goods.

Fathers, Mothers and Children 4th Grade Meeting

 

An important objective of our school is to generate spaces for conversation within each of our families for which we have designed the Fathers, Mothers and Sons, Daughters Meetings. Last Tuesday May 24th and Wednesday May 25th, our 4th Grade families participated in a meeting organized and led by the Head Teachers, the Formation Department and the Junior Cycle Coordination. It was an instance of reunion among the families of the level, which allowed them to reflect on themselves, their values, their hallmarks and how they show love to each other within the family. In the closing activity, each family designed a shield that will represent them as a family in the future.

We thank each of the attendees and invite them to continue generating spaces for family conversation.
