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

We chose to work GAUDÍ because he was a wonderful artist; we also though we could work about him with our pupils; so we have worked hard with our children and we have produced a great variety of art works. Working on different techniques (drawing, painting, building models, watercolour, collage, modelling with clay,...) in each levels (from P3 to 6th level) we are proud of our young school artists!

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:
