1º ESO Goes to the Theatre

The students from the first-year ESO class went to the theatre this morning. Here are their thoughts on The Prince and the Homeless Man

Today we went to the theatre. We saw a play about a prince who becomes homeless and a homeless person who becomes a prince. The prince wants the freedom of the homeless life, and the homeless person has looked through the windows of the palace every day and dreams of living there. At the end, the two people return to their previous positions.

The actors were very funny and at the end we had the opportunity to ask them questions. But there was a problem, because a knight used a defibrillator on the king even though the play was set in the Middle Ages. The actors were very expressive and the story was funny.

Many interesting things have been happening at school this week. The 1st ESO students report…

The other class made a volcano in Science, and we think that we might make one later this week. On Monday, some students went to meetings about equality. A teacher and some older students are repainting the school fence. Also, they are painting a mural on the science block.

Crazy Job Interviews #1 – Floor Tester

The picture is of a floor of black and white tiles.
We may never look at floors the same way again!

In our afternoon English classes, we held Crazy Job Interviews, inspired by the strange questions asked in interviews for positions at Google. We invented a weird job, wrote questions to ask the “candidates”, then interviewed our classmates to decide who to hire.

This one is from Lidia and Laura from 3rd ESO. 

Would you jump off a 1m-high ladder?

Would you test a granite floor?

Have you ever tested floors?

What would you do if you fractured your skull?

a) Go to the doctor

b) Go home

c) Bleed out on the killer floor

d) Put a bandage on your head

e) Sue the company

Spanish Culture Explained: Croquetas

A croqueta, called a croquette in English, is a fried food in the shape of an egg. It is a typical Spanish food.. The outside is covered in breadcrumbs and it contains milk and flour, as well as other ingredients like ham, egg, cheese, chicken, fish, octopus, mushroom, and shrimp. Other less common ingredients include vegetables, mashed potato, and sauce. You can also find dessert croquetas containing chocolate.

Croquetas may be eaten with mushrooms, potatoes and bread. They can be sold as a tapa, a small plate of food that comes with a drink. Doña Croqueta was a puppet on a television show.
