Year 1 and ECU 3 went on a school trip to Montjuic. The children walked around the botanical gardens looking at all the different flowers from all around the world.
The children then took part in a Butterfly workshop, where they learnt all about the different features of a Butterfly.
It was such a warm beautiful day and we even got to eat our lunch together in the sun.
We had lots of fun!!

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.
Year 2 went to the Miro museum as part of their topic work. They looked at all of the scultpures, learnt a bit about where Miro´s inspiration came from and copied a Miro painting of their own.
We had a wonderful time!
