APPLIED KNOWLEDGE - COLLECTING DATA

Hello again dear friends!

This post is about the amazing subject of "Applied Knowledge". As you well know, our students are studying and working the unit about healthy habits through songs, speeches, tv programmes... and they are collecting data in the classroom!!!

They are looking for the healthiest person in the class. They are asking each other and writing down the results of the survey in tables, charts, graphs, frequency and more. If you want to know how to represent the data, just click the following picture and enjoy it.

LIFE PROCESSES

Hello again dear friends!

In this post, we will review some basic concepts about the life processes. As you well know, life processes are necessary to maintain life. They are carried out by living things. Just click on the underlined words (the blue ones) and the videos will be opened.

Nutrition is the process which provides your body with all the nutrients and energy that are necessary for life. It involves four processes: digestion (the main organs are the stomach and the intestines), respiration (the main organs are the lungs), circulation (the main organ is the heart) and excretion (the main organs are the kidneys).

The process of sensitivity is the ability to detect and respond to changes in the environment. It involves the sense organs (eyes, ear, nose, tongue and hands), the nervous system (the brain and the nerves) and the locomotor system (made up of the skeletal system and the muscular system).

The process of reproduction allows us to have offspring (children/babies) similar to ourselves through the sexual reproduction. Male reproductive organs and female reproductive organs are different and they develop during the stage of adolescence. The baby develops and become larger inside the mother’s uterus. This period is called pregnancy and lasts about nine months.

Thanks for visiting. Regards, Christopher.

GROWING HEALTHY

Hello again dear friends:

In this post, I want to show you the TV programme the students in our school have developed. They were TV presenters and special guests for a day. Through these videos we can learn some healthy habits we should have, some sports we should do, and some healthy food we should eat. It deals with the contents we have been working in Applied Knowledge, Natural Science and English. I hope you like them because they did it as professional TV workers and they enjoyed a lot that moment.

Just click the pictures and a new tab will be opened.

See you. Regards, Christopher.

WINNIE THE WITCH FOR HALLOWEEN


Hello again dear friends!

As you know, next week is Halloween (October 31st), a day in which people wear scary costumes and they can be vampires, mummies, aliens, witches, wizards, skeletons, ghosts, spiders...

One of the most famous witches all over the world is Winnie the Witch, a woman who lives alone in her house and everything around her is black. She has a pet cat and it is black too, so this is a problem for her. How can she solve this? Just click on the pictures, watch the videos, guess it and enjoy her adventures.

ISMAEL'S TRIP TO PARIS

Hello again dear friends!

Today, in the amazing English lesson, Ismael (4th Level A) has shown us his trip to Paris with his family (his mother, Anabel and his father, Ismael).

They went to the most well-known museum in the capital city (“The Louvre Museum”) and they saw Da Vinci’s famous painting created in the 16th century “The Mona Lisa” or "La Gioconda".

They were with different characters such as Mickey, Donald, Buzz... and they had fun in the theme park, too.

What about you? What did you do last holidays? Were you in a different country? Did you visit any interesting places?

Waiting for your answers. Regards, Christopher.

FOOD IN THE UK


Hello again and welcome back to this amazing academic year 2017-2018!

Here you are two videos about food in the United Kingdom our students have watched in their Applied Knowledge lessons. During this month, they will have to find out what the healthy habits are for having a healthy body, interview their classmates and do some drama by the end of the project called "GROWING HEALTHY". I will upload some pictures and videos about this activity as soon as possible.


Thanks again for visiting and see you soon. Regards, Christopher.
