Christmas activities 2020


Christmas at IES Punta del Verde

    This term and overcoming all difficulties caused by the sanitary situation,we have been able to celebrate Christmas with our students. 

    First I would like to mention the original Christmas tree designed by the bilingual teacher of Physics and Chemistry, Manolo Caro . It was created by the students of third ESO. 

 In Latin and English we have sung Christmas carols. Here are some of the results of Latin , with students of 2nd Bachillerato and 4th ESO

The following videos are different versions of " Twelve days of Christmas "sung by  students of 1st Bachillerato: 

Here is another version sung by the teachers and with the participation of Maria Peral from "aula específica",who dances like a professional

And to end we also have a group of students from 1st ESO . Most of them  belong to the drama class.

In French students have created decorations in the classroom

Apart from these activities, this year we have an email project with a school in England, in Bolton. The school is Sharples school. A lot of students from first to 4th ESO are participating in this project. Here are examples of Christmas cards recieved from England. Up to this time,most ot the students have written two letters. They are all delighted with the experience. Here are some letters from the English students: 

And here are some of the cards designed by our students :

European day of Languages

 Students of all levels of education and teachers of IES Punta del Verde have participated in a very singular activity to celebrate the European day of languages. They have quoted in different languages two of the most famous quotations by Willian Shakespeare:

"To be or not to be, that is the question"

" All the world is a stage and all men and women merely players"

It has been a great surprise how many languages can be spoken in a single school. It has been a successful activity in which many students have shown their creativity apart from having a great time.

My experience at IES Punta del Verde, by Lindsay Sturnick

 Situated in the heart of Betis nation, IES Punta del Verde will fill your heart in so many ways. When I was first assigned to this high school I was excited, grateful, anxious, nervous, and ready for this new chapter in my life. From the very moment I accepted my position as the new language assistant the bilingual group had made me feel welcomed. I was added to their bilingual team WhatsApp group and was always informed of activities or updates. Everything was very organized, I knew who I could contact if I had any issues, and this really made my transition a lot easier. 

You won’t find a more motivated, ambitious, creative, or fun group of professors who genuinely love their jobs than at IES Punta del Verde. You may notice that Pilar is always working on a new project to give the students incredible opportunities with the Erasmus program (you may even start to wonder if and when she sleeps!). You’ll see Macarena and Manolo creating exciting lessons for Chemistry and Biology that incorporate fun dice games or role playing. Olmo might use his great video skills and love for physical education to encourage the students to dance and make a video to raise awareness for global warming, which with the help and energy and animation of Nuria will be a great success. And, without a doubt you will learn A LOT about Spanish history while you work with Alejandro. While I’ve only mentioned a few of the members of the bilingual team, attending class with any one of the professors will always be sure to be fun and exciting! 

During my two years assisting at Punta del Verde I learned a lot about what it takes to be a great teacher, how to motivate kids and create an atmosphere of inclusivity, and I learned a lot about Spain and its rich culture. I will always remember this experience and will look back fondly on the wonderful teachers and students of this high school in Heliópolis, where the sun really does seem to shine a little bit brighter.

Shaping young Europeans'future through drama

Tomorrow we will begin the first mobility of this Erasmus project. We will bring to Kazanlak ( Bulgaria) our culture through the performance of plays,songs and our popular "sevillanas". It will be a long week with an ambitious programme organised by the coordinator of the project Natasha Dzhurkova, but I am sure it will be well worth the work. Carmen, Martin,Laura,Claudia and Elizabeth will be the real protagonists  of this adventure
