Publicado en Celebrations, English class, General, Halloween



This year Halloween  has been equally terrifying, or even more so, than previous courses. Our school has been fantastically decorated with the work done by the students  of first and second cycle of ESO and of the first year of bachillerato. Besides, students of PMAR and basic vocational training have also contributed their bit.

We are going to tell you about the spooky jobs that students have done for Halloween and we will also show you some pictures to share with you.

First Cycle of ESO


ESO’s first cycle works have focused on the figure and legend of Count Dracula. Students have researched the origins of the most famous vampire in history and have learned a lot about this evil character.

Students have shown great interest and have demonstrated outstanding imagination in the crafts they have made: coffins, vampires and figures of varied shapes and materials have filled the exhibition.

The students of First Cycle also made some yummy and frightening  Dracula Cakes that they shared with the rest of their classmates. Delicious!!!


Thanks to  Marta Jordán Ordiales , the First Cycle teacher , for  her collaboration to these amazing works.



To celebrate this festival of terror, monsters and darkness, my 4º ESO B students have been working on writing acrostics. An acrostic is a poem (or other form of writing) in which the first letter of each line spells out a word or a message. In this case, Halloween terms should be the spine of these poetic compositions. Playing with words is another way of discovering all the possibilities that a language offers.

At first sight ,the task seemed hard , even imposible for students . Step by step they left fear out and found the work fun and joyful.

We will show you some results:





My students of PMAR have been working very hard on the decorations of their classroom doors, showing a lot of imagination.

Thanks to my students for their collaboration.

By Yolanda Clemente Sánchez


Bachillerato students have also participated in this celebration with varied projects made on posters. In them, it is shown all the information they have found on the Internet related to some of the most famous monsters and legends of all times.They have discovered  terrifying creatures and spooky legends like  The Mummy, Sleepy Hollow, The Werewolf , Jack’O’Lantern or The Errant Dutch ..

Frankestein has been the topic of other Bachillerato projects: its author (Mary Shelley), characters, main topics and historical background.

How  Halloween  is celebrated around the world is another topic  that has motivated the students to search on the Internet and find, learn and share interesting information .

Frankestein Collage

It has been an interesting and funny Halloween celebration. We wait for all of you the next year!!!

gamer          skull


GAMER means player, or translated into serious Spanish: Viciado. GAMER is anyone who spends a minimum of time playing video games. Then clearly, there are the GAMERS trolls, the fanboys gamers, and the maximumgamers that are those that spend 22 hours playing in a row…



A video game player, gamer or gamer, also known by gamer Anglicism, is anyone who likes video games. … A gamer is that person who is known for playing with great dedication and interest in video games and for having an extensive knowledge about these and at the same time, they charge.



Being a gamer can be summarized as “a person who likes video games” or “a person whose hobby is video games”. But being a gamer is much more than that. The gamers do not belong to any urban tribe, they do not dress in any particular way, but they all share the same hobby, the same passion

Twilight of Shades

I used to think that modern poets were nasty people, but not any more. Apart from being a good person and a good friend, Mario Lourtau writes excellent poetry, and the literary prizes he has got is proof for that. The first time I read one of his books I felt a strange feeling inside. I could see the quality of those verses, but that little man did not regard himself a god, he didn´t boast himself or looked down on me as many arrogant poets tend to do with those who are not expert at what they do. Then I told him about the images of his poetry, and the words that reminded the childhood in Extremadura and the vocabulary that surprises once and again. No doubt Mario masters Spanish. But he also writes English poems. I did not know that until Carmen, the language teacher in our high school, asked Mario to talk about his literary work to our students. Then I discovered another advantage of being bilingual: I could appreciate and compare both the beauty of the Spanish version and the English one of TWILIGHT OF SHADES. Thank you Mario. We will not be afraid of literature, as you advise us, I promise.
