Human clastic model

Publicado en General — 5 Abril 2017 @ 3:35 pm

All students in 3erd course have created these clastic models. It has been the funniest and the easiest way to work in groups and to learn more about systems related to nutrition in our bodies.


Our first Technology project- Nuestro primer proyecto de tecnología

Publicado en 2nd Year ESO — 4 Abril 2017 @ 3:26 pm

We have finished our first project in the Technology workshop. It is a traditional toy called carioca made with a plastic ball, cord and ribbon. For this project, we have applied the technological process normally used in Technology to find solutions to a problem. We learnt how to use tools like the column drill, the riveter… and to work properly in the workshop. Finally, as with every project, we did a report containing a diagram of the carioca, the list of materials and tools used, the construction process and an estimate of the costs. We feel proud about the results!

Hemos terminado nuestro primer proyecto en el taller de Tecnología. Se trata de un juguete tradicional llamado carioca hecho con una pelota de plástico, cuerda y una cinta. En este proyecto hemos aplicado el método de proyectos, usado habitualmente en Tecnología para encontrar soluciones a un problema. Aprendimos a usar herramientas como el taladro de columna, el remachador… y a trabajar de forma adecuada en el taller. Finalmente, como en todos los proyectos, hicimos un informe que contenía un croquis de la carioca, la lista de materiales y herramientas empleados, el proceso constructivo y un presupuesto. ¡Estamos orgullosos de los resultados!


Lampyridae (Carlos Coronas)

Publicado en 2nd Year ESO — 4 Abril 2017 @ 3:14 pm

One of the last days of the first term, we visited a very beautiful exhibition by Carlos Coronas. It was named Lampyridae. What we had to do was a sketch about one of the figures. It was so difficult! The pictures showed the changes of light regulated by the Arduin board. In my opinion it was a different work. It was great! (Ángela L., 2º ESO B)




Visit to Turon Valley- Visita al valle de Turón

Publicado en 2nd Year ESO — 4 Abril 2017 @ 2:17 pm


Last November we visited the Turon Valley with our Technology teacher. A guide called Roberto told us a lot of interesting things about the industrial past of Turon and its surroundings. We took a beautiful walk on the Turon green path, the old railway tracks path, with stops at Pozo Santa Bárbara, Pozo Espino … and other important places related to mining in our county. We all learned a lot about our history and spent a fun morning with our mates!


El pasado noviembre visitamos el valle de Turón con nuestra profesora de Tecnología. Un guía llamado Roberto nos contó muchas cosas interesantes acerca del pasado industrial de Turón y sus alrededores. Hicimos un bonito paseo en la senda verde de Turón, el antiguo recorrido de las vías del tren, con paradas en el Pozo Santa Bárbara, el Pozo Espino y otros lugares importante relacionados con la minería en nuestro concejo ¡Todos aprendimos mucho sobre nuestra historia y pasamos una mañana divertida con nuestros compañeros!

Elemental Funkiness by Mark Rosengarten

Publicado en General — 2 Diciembre 2016 @ 9:46 pm

In 1869, Dmitri Mendeleev could see
That properties of elements vary periodically
As atomic number increases, the properties repeat
In a soothing rhythmic pattern that can form a funky beat

The elements we know about, they number one-fourteen
Some in quantities so small that theyve never been seen
Most are common elements that are far and wide dispersed
But all of them together make up all the universe

Elements in Group 1 are called the alkalis
They explode in water, and are of very tiny size
They love to lose electrons when they form a bond
Of these reactive atoms, I can say Im rather fond!

Group 2 elements are often called alkaline earth
Calciums been building bones since well before your birth
They form nice +2 ions and are generally quite fun
Though theyre not quite as reactive as the metals in Group 1

Since 1869, every one of us could see
That properties of elements vary periodically
As atomic number increases, the properties repeat
In a soothing rhythmic pattern that can form a funky beat

Metals in groups 3-12? Transition elements!
Some of them are lightweight, and others really dense
Things they have in common, they form charges, two or more
And some form colored compounds, which is something we adore!

If you want an element, just tell me once again
If its in Group 17, youve got a halogen!
Nonmetals so corrosive, theyre not found in their pure state
They can gain electrons like theyre going out of date!

Got one for you in Group 18, and its known as Noble Gas
If youre looking for an element that just sits there on its %&@
If you wonder why and havent figured it out yet
Their valence configuration is a big stable octet!

So now it should be obvious that everyone should see
That properties of elements vary periodically
As atomic number increases, the properties repeat
In a soothing rhythmic pattern that can form a funky beat
