Last Sunday, the 3rd of June, Escaan International School of Barcelona participated in the “Amigos y Familiares de Niños Oncológicos” (AFANOC) charity event “Posa’t la gorra!” at Port Aventura, aimed to raise awareness and inform society about child cancer. On the 10th edition of this campaign, “Posa’t la gorra!” is set once again to raise money for this charity by selling hats at 18€ with a free entrance to Port Aventura adventure park.
This year, the Club Natació Sitges’ bar, together with ESCAAN, organised a special trip in order to join the thousands of supporting participants who travelled to Port Aventura to take part in this major charity event, where they were able to join in the different crafts and activities, aimed at both children and adults.
Last year, thanks to the major participation in this event, the “Casa dels Xuklis” project became a reality; families who have to relocate to Barcelona, so that their children can receive the correct treatment, are now taken into this house. With the money raised this year, they will contribute to the 25 apartments to be built in the “Casa del Xuklis” and their maintenance. The “Casa dels Xuklis” which opened 6 months ago, has already taken in around 60 families.
In the final part of last term Year 3 had to design a seat as part of their homework. Many of the children made wonderful chairs and were very proud of their creations. The children have learnt how to sketch a 3D chair and after many practices have the have painted their chair in the style of Van Gogh. Make sure you check out our display in the corridor outside Year 3.
What a week: some exams, World Spelling Day, World Maths Day, A trip to the Theatre, and finally the last of the exams. It’s all go. We’re also writing a long quest story and really rasining our game in writing! Big improvements. Well done, everyone!
The classroom pictures are of lessons writing the story.
Then there are two taken on the trip to the theatre, the first as they were waiting to go, and the second waiting for curtain up at the theatre. The show was good ghosts and all!
Then back to a great Y9 and Y6 together with Mr. Prestidge showing his usual energy and enthusiasm. Thank you Mr. Prestidge!
It’s an unusual date and I told the class that in UK this is the day when traditionally the ladies can ask the gentleman to marry them. This bothered a couple of the boys but they were relieved to hear they don’t have to say, “yes.”!
We started drawing the human body in movement. Getting the proprtions right has proved to be harder than expected but great improvements have been made – legs have grown longer!!.
Year 8 Real life Maths in Sitges.
This week in maths Year 8 went into the centre of Sitges for our maths. We began by discussing the properties of shapes and where we see shapes in real life. We considered why cylinders are used as plant pots, why traffic signs are different shapes, why some parking spaces are shaped as rectangles and others are parallelograms.
Students were asked to consider how much the stone Sitges sign cost and measured the dimensions in order to use the data to calculate the price when we were back in school. We also used the motion detectors to record the speed of the traffic coming into and out of Sitges so we can analyze the data to find the average, range and consider the distribution of speeds.
Finally the students asked the public questionnaires they had designed to test the hypothesis that women do more exercise than men. Next week we will be analyzing and interpreting the data to be able to draw conclusions.
