This last term of the year has been short but tough since students and teachers have faced exams and corrections all the time. Nevertheless, they have found the time to participate in the Spelling Bee Contest (in the subjects belonging to the English BRIT programme) and also in the Ceremony of the Chatterbox Diplomas of Oral Skills. Congratulations to all the winners and thanks a lot to the teachers of the English BRIT programme to make it possible. Please, click on the picture below to watch the video. Have a wonderful summer holidays!
This project started as a way to explore and share information about relevant people in our 1 ESO students’ communities. Under teacher Irene’s supervision and guidance, students interviewed relatives and friends, created digital mindmaps and typed the information, which then became a written biography. Finally, the students were recorded reading their texts aloud. We hope you enjoy their stories.

This year the Department of English has decided to focus on Comics and Graphic Novels. That’s why along the last week of April and along the first weeks of May the Department of English has worked on several activities together with the willing participation of our American assistant Carly and also the enthusiastic collaboration of Paz and Chuan (PIEE), who offered the students a workshop on «Animated musical videos» and another workshop on «Comics Onomatopoeias«. Thanks a lot to them, to the teachers involved and to those students who have participated in all these activities. Here below you can watch a video with a summary of the activities:

Throughout the second term the Department of English has been working on another project together with our American assistant Carly. The aim was to work on April Fool’s Day from a different perspective.
The students have provided a list of stereotypes they have about the US and Carly has done an incredible research project showing evidence for their being true, false or semi-true. In return, students also have had to explain to Carly if her stereotypes about Spanish culture are true, false or semi-true. For this part, we have had the enthusiastic and valuable participation of some students currently studying in Ohio, our student Lucía Ponz‘s classmates this year, who have sent us their ideas about Spain in a video.
Special thanks must be given to those American students in Ohio, to Lucía (our «intermediary») and to Carly, who have proved to be a great help to know the American culture closely. Here below you have a video with some of the activities done at school with the students:
2nd ESO students went on a guided tour in English to «La Aljafería» Palace last 29th March. They were in groups and had to complete several activities about «La Aljafería» and Harry Potter’s «Hogwarts». They had to combine their knowledge of Art and their knowledge of the English language in an intensive visit. You can click on the video below to see some photos of the visit:
Students of English at Élaios had taken part in a lot of activities along this term, such as the trips to Whitstable (UK), the visits to the cinema and the one-day trips to visit «La Aljafería» and the «Parque del Agua«.
Apart from those, English BRIT students had participated in the traditional Spelling Bee contests from 1st to 4th ESO, and a lot of English students have been awarded their diplomas of Oral Skills with their Chatterbox cards.

On 26th January and on 9th February the English department offered 1st Bachillerato and 4th ESO students the possibility to go to the cinema and see «Avatar: The Way of Water» in English with Spanish subtitles. It has been a long time since this type of motivating activities was done at school because of the pandemic. So we hope to continue it in the near future.
