Drama Workshop First Term Working Hard

In Drama Workshop, students of  1-ESO -1  have been working hard all term. Here is a collection of the most inspired pictures and moments in their classes.

When there is a smile shared

When our particular Santa Claus shares his big smile, something happens around .

 Surprisingly, students change faces and clothes
The virus immediately spreads its strength and charm everywhere in the class.

Students get dressed like Santa and then join and sing and celebrate.
 Happy Birthday, Stefany

and Merry, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Merry Christmas and a Happy new Year

We wish you a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas; 
We wish you a Merry Christmas; 
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin; 
Good tidings for Christmas and a Happy New Year. 
Oh, bring us a figgy pudding; 
Oh, bring us a figgy pudding; 
Oh, bring us a figgy pudding and a cup of good cheer

We won't go until we get some; 
We won't go until we get some; 
We won't go until we get some, so bring some out here

We wish you a Merry Christmas; 
We wish you a Merry Christmas; 
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

PREE-1º ESO: An exciting course

In IES Julio Caro Baroja BHI we have very different  projects. One of them  is PREE, a especial course to support those students who need it to catch up with their studies/mates.

They have normal clasess, true, but they also have a lot of projects in the English classes to support Speaking.

 In the current  project we first take pictures of the situation, then we make a poster, later we create the text and finally the students present their project orally and record it.

Drama Workshop Performance.

As part of the Trilingualism Project, students of 1º ESO are producing their first play which will be presented on December 20th, only for families and friends. After a long term working in the  Drama Workshop they will say bye to 2012 by singing "We wish you a Merry Christmas" after the performance.
It will be the second language first experience on the stage for many of them. But they have been working hard; so, sure they will be rewarded with a big clap from the audience.

But what's the title of the play?

Funny School Times - 1
The  musical, which was created last year, has got new dialogues and sketches for a larger cast and crew.

European Projects: Student Exchange 2012 - 2013

IES Julio Caro Baroja BHI has been involved  in the European Projects these last days. Seventeen German students and two teachers have visited us. It's being a traditional exchange between  the communities of Garbsen and Getxo. Our students and the German students have been working on the  "National identity" of both countries. In March, our students will go to Garbsen (Germany) together with other European countries to finish the project and to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Project Comenius.
The German students in Getxo have been visiting the most outstanding and symbolic landmarks in Bizkaia, Bilbao and Getxo.

The exchange can be classed as "Excellent". Students' attitude, work, collaboration and commitment at any moment deserve a medal.
Let's give them all our congratulation.

When good work and effort are rewarded

We have to congratulate our students and their German partners for three reasons:

- First , for their good work in the project (National Identities): they have not only done a good job but also deepened on and taught  one another new interesting ideas.

- Second, for their sense of collaboration and friendship, helping one another at any moment, trying to make the Germans' staying more comfortable, interesting and happy.

- Third, for making these European Projects a real success, especially this year 2012 when we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Comenius projects.

But everybody knows that things don't go well by chance; so let's congratulate the English Department and all their teachers for their effort and collaboration on the project, the German Teachers for their professionalism and commitment

 and especially our students' parents for 
their support, effort and total commitment. 
Thanks a lot.

Last Workshop, Casco Viejo and Diputación

On Friday, during their first class, the binational teams presented their 
products  as a summary of all their discussions and ideas.

Later in the morning they visited Casco Viejo and ended up in Diputación where they had the chance to enjoy that beautiful small palace asking a lot of questions to the guide.

Little by little, all this week long they have been appreciating our way of life, visiting our villages and cities, enjoying friends and family life.
A memory they will never forget.

Second Workshop

Today at 08:15 a. m. the students have met in the Salón de Actos to prepare the second workshop. First, in their presentation groups, they have taken notes about what surprised and didn't surprise them about the others' presentations and formulated questions about any questions left. 

Then, they have mixed in Spanish-German groups to present the results they have found. 
They have been talking and clearing out any possible questions before writing the relevant topics discussed in the binational groups in the whiteboard.

Finally they have been producing posters and other materials to reflect their conclusions.

 In the afternoon our German friends have visited Bilbao and ended up 
their walk in the Guggenheim Museum.

A walk through Getxo

After the first workshop in the morning where  the students of both countries presented their tasks, they had a long walk  through our town.
Perhaps the pictures describe the discovery of our little town better than the words.
