1º British: Historical movies

As we did last year with the 4º E.S.O. syllabus, we have a new edition of historical films for summer time, in this case focus on 1º E.S.O. syllabus (Prehistory, Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece and Rome). 

And, as a warm-up, we will watch a couple of episodes of "Roman Misteries" (Aventures in the Empire), a TV serie from BBC (2008, two seasons) based on the book collection by Caroline Lawrence, that you liked so much... Can you recognise each character?

2014 Model-making exhibition

Good news! Finally we had our model-making exhibition at the High School' Hall. We selected a dozen of them (it was a really harsh decision, by the way) and they look amazing! Congratulations to all of you for these wondefull jobs. 

You can visit the exhibition until the end of this academic year, and don't forget to invite your family and friends... Remember also that you can see the individual (and detailed) photos in the "Actividades" Tab of this blog...

Enjoy the exhibition!

4º British: 70º aniversary of the D-Day invasion

On June 6, 1944, 150,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France.

General Dwight D. Eisenhower called the operation a crusade in which “we will accept nothing less than full victory” More than 5,000 ships and 11,000 aircraft supported the invasion, and by day’s end, the Allies gained a foot-hold in France. The D-Day cost was high with more than 9,000 Allied soldiers killed or wounded as the march across Europe to defeat Hitler began.

Today, 70 years after the D-Day, the World commemorates the effort. In the web D-Day Memorial you could find and learn many resources about this topic: primary documents, videos, militar projects, stories from veterans, glossary, etc.

In addition, if you want to compare the coastline of Normandy now and them, visit the link of the Huffington Post.

1º British: Roman games from BBC

Death in Rome!

Be a Roman sleuth - use your detective skills to unravel the events behind a mysterious death. You have until dawn to investigate the crime scene, and crack the case.

Piece together the puzzle using their evidence, eye-witness testimonies, and perhaps a little detective's intuition.

Gladiator: dressed to kill

Dress a gladiator for battle in the Roman Colisseum of death. Your choice of weapons and armour will decide whether or not he is victorious.

Will the emperor grant your gladiator his freedom, or will he fight badly and lose his honour, or even his life?

1º E.S.O. Historical Dioramas (Part III)

Another new item: the Gate of Isthar, from the Babylon's wall. Amazing, isn't it?

Of course, we have some examples of Greek temples. But this year, you have been much more creative... What do you think about this wonderfull Parthenon as today's look?

We have several more: Different sizes, different materials, different perspectives... Which one do you prefer?

And last, but not least, our first example of a Roman militar camp!

Now, enjoy the exhibition and feel free to vote your favorite one! And... start thinking about next year's proyects ;-)

1º E.S.O. Historical Dioramas (Part II)

A classic topic in model making is the egyptian one. But, apart from the several versions of the Gizeh's pyramids, this year we also have a complete scribbe's desk!

This pyramid is quite interesting: because you can even open it and see its interior, with the royal chamber and the galleries...

This year we have many different options, even full scenarios. Which one do you like the most?

And, of course, another classic topic: mesopotamian zigurats!

1º E.S.O. Historical Dioramas (Part I)

Here we have a new edition of our special activity: model making - time! After the great success of last year, in this edition we have some new items. For example, prehistoric dioramas, dolmen included:

And even the terracotta warriors of Xian, from the ancient Chinese civilization!

Or the neolithic city of Çatal Hüyuck:
