1.en.1. The forest, much more than wood. First school outing this year

Dear students,

this is my first post this year, I’m glad to see you back after a long, long summer. We did not have time to talk much, as in our first day of class we rushed to see the exhibition on the forest that was on at La Caixa.

Last year, La Caixa was kind of  another classroom for us. Do you remember the times we were there? Well, it was kind of nice to set off with an outing to see an exhibition there, don’t you think?

This year we have four new students with us: Sarah, Neus,  Idaira and Emil. We are happy to have them with us and must try to make them feel comfortable among us and part of the group.

Some of your former classmates are no longer in our group, but the school is not that big and I’m sure we’ll keep on seeing them in the corridors: Llorenç, Juan Miguel, Hao, Alejandro and Johana. Jose Luis is in a different school, outside Palma, and Lucas is very far, it will be more difficult to see him, but the internet makes things easier for us, so we hope they  will visit our blog from time to time. It would be nice to get some news all the way from Argentina. Everybody can visit our blog, so it will be a good way to keep in touch.

The title of the exhibition was, “The forest, much more than wood”

Similarly we could say:

” A book , much more than pages”

“A poem, much more than words”

“A tree, much more than leaves”

“2nd ESO E, much more than  a group of  students”

Homework

1) Can you think of any more examples? Post them to the blog.

singular trees, forests, seeds and poems

On our way we stopped at la Misericordia and took our first pic this year under a singular tree. we learnt some new words:

deciduous= trees that lose their leaves seasonally

evergreen=trees that have leaves in all seasons

On Monday we shall correct the dossier and talk about how to do the power point.

You can see some of the pics I took at la Caixa. You worked very well, but were a too noisy, that has not changed since last year.

Sarah and Neus

Congratulations! You learnt how to collaborate. Backs can be excellent desks, much better to take notes on a hard surface. Gabriel is kind of a lonewolf and seems surprised.

Lovepreet liked this poem and asked me to take a pic. I'm sure Magdalena will like it too

Science and poetry go hand in hand in this exhibition. Which language is this poem written in?

Homework:

2) There were other poems on the walls, each group had to choose one. Post to the blog the one you liked best. Do not repeat it, if it has already been posted.
