Aquest curs els nens i nenes de 3r hem començat una assignatura nova: SCIENCE!
Hem començat estudiant les plantes i ens hem convertit en científics per un dia.
Hem observat com són per dins les fulles que hem portat a la classe. Hem vist parts que no havíem pogut veure abans!
Hem utilitzat lupes i també... un microscopi!! Hem après moltes coses noves i tot in English!
Des de començaments d'octubre tenim ja aquí amb nosaltres com cada any les nostres auxiliars de conversa!
Aquest any tenim a la Steph, la Rachel, l'Emily i la Sarah. La Steph ajudarà a les classes de Primària (anglès, art&crafts i science) mentres que la resta fomentaran la conversa amb els alumnes d'ESO i Batxillerat. Les nostres auxiliars viuen amb famílies d'acollida de l'escola, i estan molt contentes!
Us deixem amb la seva presentació i primeres impressions de la nova vida a Barcelona:
Hello! My name is Sarah Kiningham and I am from the United States. More specifically, I am from a small town in Indiana, a Midwestern state close to Chicago. In my free time, I like hiking, playing music, reading, and writing. In college, I studied French literature and political science. For the last three years, I have been teaching French in Tennessee and Indiana. Since I enjoy learning languages and teaching, I decided to come to Spain with CAPS. And I'm very glad to be here. It has been a pleasure to get to know my host family as well as the students and teachers at Padre Damian. I look forward to an enriching stay in Barcelona. SARAH
Hi! My name is Emily and I'm from Yorkshire in the north of England. I like it because it has the perfect combination of beautiful countryside and city life. I come from a large family with three younger sisters. I recently graduated from university, having studied drama at Goldsmiths, University of London, for 3 years. I am currently taking a break from education before returning to university to undertake a masters course in social science. The school has amazing facilities and I am excited to be working with the staff and students here. While in Barcelona I hope to learn Spanish and experience the food and culture here! EMILY
Hi I'm Rachel and I'm from near Brighton in the South east of England! I studied drama at the university of exeter and graduated last year. I have spent the year trying out different jobs and now find myself in this beautiful part of the world where I hope to learn some Spanish, meet amazing people and impart some of my knowledge of the English language to your children! RACHEL
Hello! My name is Stephanie Quinn, I am 20 years old and I am from Preston, England. I am currently a student at the University of Central Lancashire studying BA (Hons) in Modern Foreign Languages (Spanish and Chinese). This year I will be working as an English Conversation assistant until February with pupils aged 6-12 years at Padre Damian Sagrados Corazones. My first impressions of the school are very positive, the building itself is modern and eye-catching, the staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming and the pupils are all very talented and enthusiastic about learning. I hope this year I will be able to motivate the pupils to speak as much English as possible and inspire them to continue their studies of the language further. STEPH
