Let's keep our blog alive

Thank you very much again for the great work done during this two years of our project!!
It brings up all of us really nice memories!
This school year is already over, summer is here and let's enjoy the well-deserved holidays!

We kindly remind you that our blog will be open, so it would be fantastic if we all keep it running a bit forward by uploading and showing little pieces of any interesting activity, project, festival, school trip...
We've been building up a nice blog during these two years of our project, pretty much to look at!
So it would be a good idea to keep it a bit alive; so, feel free to post something more on it from September onwards.

Lots of GAUDÍ art works in the school

Final Meeting in Esplugues. Farewell

Dances Festival went on with the impressive 6th level children dancing Ball de bastons(Sticks dance)!!
This traditional Catalan dance has its origins in the Middle Age, when soldiers and warriors invented it to keep fit, to practise during the peaceful periods.
Originally only men were taking part in this dance, but from the sixties (60’) women are actively participating and having a relevant role in this dance nowadays.

After this great festival of dances from each level, now time to dance altogether.
We invited our guests to take part dancing in the last dances: Ball del rogle (Circle dance) and Sardana; typical Catalan dances where everybody is welcomed to dance.
Laughs, happiness and emotion on the farewell!

Final Meeting in Esplugues. Dances Festival.

On a hot and sunny afternoon, children from 3rd to 6th level danced happily for Comenius partners visitors.
Tipical dances and some surprises.
3rd level danced “Contradansa” called like this because of the steps, done and to the opposite: in/out and forward/backward.
4th level performed "La Bolangera”, from Tarragona. This traditional dance was very popular because it was usually performed as an “opening dance” in every festival.
5th level danced “Ribbons' dance” time ago part from rituals made to the trees in April and May. This dance praised to the Deities for a good fruits’ harvest.
So the ribbons were originially used to decorate the tree and dance around, but the tree was replaced for a pole/long stick holded by a dancer, who keeps standing it up during the dance.
And... a surprise for our guests at the end of "Ribbons' dance"

We hope you enjoy this video:

Sant Jordi (Saint George's) day

In Catalunya Sant Jordi is a very important day.
It can be considered the Love Day, because men give their beloved women a rose as a proof of love. This tradition is based on the Legend of Sant George.
Moreover, it's the Books' day. So everybody buys books as gifts.
Sant Jordi is not a holiday, but it looks like it!
Everywhere in the streets you can find stalls selling books and roses and lots of people choosing books to buy.
Also at school we set our own stall in Infant school playground. During all Sant Jordi's day children from 6th level recomend and sell books and roses to children that visit the stall, as well as to their parents that also come.

We live intensely Sant Jordi festivity at school.
During Sant Jordi's previous days, there's a big books exhibition at school library. All classes visit it and our librarians show and tell them nice stories from brand new books.

The dragon comes to the school!!
Leaving footprints, and other smelly traces... everywhere.
It appears on the school's roof trying to frighten us.
The princess and Saint George also come to the school.
On Sant Jordi's day there is the books and roses stall in the Infant school playground.
On the afternoon, there are the "Jocs Florals" (poems and narrative contest) and dances exhibitions in the Primary school playground.

After Sant Jordi day there is a comic play where Saint George comes to rescue the princess and to fight and kill the dragon; however the play every year is different, and not always the dragon is killed...

The sun was shining and we had a fantastic day.

A gift for mom with tiles.

Completely in the context of our Comenius project and Tily the children made a flower pot for mom.
At first the pots were painted.
Then each went to work with some mosaic tiles and tile adhesive. In a nice pattern stones were glued to the jar. That was not such an easy task.
Then we put a layer of veneer on the pots.
On Thursday we planted a beautiful plant and we could take the gift for mom home.
