Easter to extracurricular activities with the aim of taking a break, socialising
and having fun together through doing outside-the-classroom activities different from the
classes and homework.
One of the most popular activity for 1st and 2nd years E.S.O. is the school trip to the French ski
station Somport where we all went snowshoeing , a fun way to enjoy the beauty of winter. It was
chilly and a bit windy, but it was good weather for walking.
On Friday we all went to the Theatre in Utebo to watch a different type of performance
"Improbich@", a play in which the actors improvised impossible absurd plays out of
phrases y excuses the audience had written on a scrap of paper before the performance.
3rd years spent three days in Madrid visiting their main museums and sights such as
the Congress of the Diputados, The Planitarium, The Egypcian Debod Temple, St. Ana
Square, the national archeological museum, The Austrias Madrid and The Bernabeu football
1st year Bachillerato have already arrived from Italy, where they have visited beautiful
citie such as Rome, Verona , Venice and Florence and emblematic places like The Vatican,
St. Mark's square or The Colisseum.
I hadn't realised spring is already here. The awful weather and the tragic news from France did not let me see its quiet discreet arrival.
Open your eyes wide, spring is here, let us celebrate with a simple poem by William Blake with which you can practise pronunciation in English paying attention to the rhyme.

There are lots of movies set in Ireland dealing with varied recurrent Irish themes like social evils-"Angela's Ashes" ( based on homonymous novel by Frank McCourt) -the Northern political conflict, the so-called The Troubles -"Hidden Agenda" or "In the Name of the Father", easy-going crazy character of Irish people -"The Commitments o The Snapper", or deep rural traditional Ireland -"The field".
For our cinema session we have chosen Leap Year, a 2010 American romantic comedy film directed by Anand Tucker. The film is about a woman who heads to Ireland to ask her boyfriend to accept her wedding proposal on leap day , when tradition supposedly holds that men cannot refuse a woman's proposal for marriage. Her plans are interrupted by a series of increasingly unlikely events and are further complicated when she hires a handsome innkeeper to take her to her boyfriend in Dublin.
- What is "leap year"?
- What can women do on leap days according to Irish tradition?
- What sociocultural aspects of Ireland are depicted in the movie?
- What is the stereotype of an Irish person?
