Our First Harvest!

We have been working hard in our school orchard and we have got the first results, our first harvest.

I admit I am very proud of my students and their work developed there. We have learnt about farming and at the same time, we have had fun.

Besides, the vegetables cultivated are being sold and the money obtained is being donated to AECC, the association that tries to help people suffering from cancer.

I want to thank all the students invoved for your effort and work.

Material in English For P.E. (Physical Education) II : Volleyball


In our PE classes we have been working with some sports and their basic rules and features.

To start with the materials on these sports , here you have a story about volleyball. In Spanish we say “voleibol”, as a transcription of the way the word volleyball sounds to the Spanish people’s ears. However, the Spanish word for volleyball is “balonvolea”. This is quite similar to the words “fútbol” and “balompié”

Material in English For P.E. (Physical Education) III : Basketball

Hello to all my students!

I am Manuel, your PE teacher.

We have been working with some materials in English in our classes of P.E. and I want all of you to have it available in our school’s website.

To start with, here you have 3.49-minute basketball video.

Sorry for the sound, but this video is quite illustrative and clear.

Languages die too. Second Part

During these Christmas holidays I found this article in the online edition of the New York Times. As it develops and expands what I mentioned about the tashuiro language and Amedeo García García, I felt I had to post it in our school’s website for those who might be interested in the topic. I must warn all of you that it is a bit long but it is worth reading and listening.  Here you have the link to the full document which even includes a six-minute video. Hope you enjoy it.

To finish, just let me give you a piece of advice: KEEP YOUR ENGLISH ALIVE.
