Heat in Natural Sciences

In Natural Sciences in the topic of heat, we have studied various concepts, from heat conversion to changes of state through to heat balance.

First we analysed how to convert heat among different measures of temperature, Celsius degrees, Pharenheit and Kelvin. Next we studied how at a molecular level, heat can affect an object to change its state. For example increased heat can make an object go from solid, to liquid, and later to gas. 

Heat gives energy to the molecules, so they change their structure, this can be seen as a change from solid to liquid and to gas. Studying heat balance, we have focused on how we can calculate the amount of heat entering and leaving a system.


This term with second ESO we have been studying the topic of Diet and Health.
When looking at diet in science, the main aspects of our work have been focused  on the balanced diet and what it consists in. Within this,  we have studied how each component of a balanced diet helps the body. For example meat, fish and poultry contain high levels of protein helping our body to grow , while wheat, cereals and grains contain high levels of carbohydrates that provide energy for our bodies.

First day, first activities!

The students have to solve some situations using the lateral thinking.
Here you have some examples:
-       A man lives on the tenth floor of a building. Every day he takes the elevator to go down to the ground floor to go to work or to go shopping. When he returns, he takes the elevator to the seventh floor and walks up the stairs to reach his apartment on the tenth floor. He hates walking so why does he do it?
-       How do you put a giraffe into your refrigerator?

Solutions by Roger Rodero and Dani Rodriguez:
-       Because he is a dwarf.
-       Open the refrigerator, put the giraffe into it and close the refrigerator.

The students have worked in groups to do the activities of the lesson. Today we’ve tried to speak in English all the time. The students listened to music of the 60's while they were working.

·     MATHS 2nd ESO  :
Today we have been in the ICT room, and we worked with the computers doing two things: 
First of all we created a document to make a review of different websites which teach probability. 
Then, pupils have been trying to understand the lyric of the song Blowin' in the Wind. Some of them were translating and others just listening to the music. 
At the end of the class, everyone has got a simple document of our interesting class.

We felt like in the NBA today! We have learnt the basketball rules, so we practise English and sport at the same time! What a new experience!

My English Experience in Natural Science

"Last Friday, 30th January, I made a presentation in Natural Sciences in English for my 2nd A class. It was very funny because now I know how teachers feel. At first, I was very nervous and I said to my teacher “No please, I will do it wrong, please I don’t want to do it”. But finally I was in front of the class and they were listening to me. I was scared when I started talking about the forces and how to calculate them, but while the time was going by I felt much better. My English wasn’t very good but people said to me that they understood it. My teacher congratulated me and I was happy with the result. Now I have less fear, I can talk in English!"

British Sports

The students of 3rd ESO are preparing a project about the most typical British Sports apart from football. The sports are: fishing, horse racing, boxing, polo, table tennis, netball, rugby, fox hunting, darts, badminton, golf and cricket, of course!!!

Each group of students has one sport assigned and they look for information about the equipment, the rules, the history and the most famous participants.

We are going to prepare some posters to decorate the corridor,  so all the students in ESO will be able to learn new things about them.
