In order to learn and explore English in a fun way, our English Week focused on the figure of Harry Potter and his magical world, specifically the first book in the series ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’, whose first edition turns 20 years.
To carry out all this task and perform activities that would be attractive for our students, the team formed by the English department, together with members of other departments of the school did a great job and tried to do our best to make this English week was a success.
We can be very satisfied with the work done and with the participation of all the students in each and every one of the proposed activities.
The photocall corner was a real success and the students enjoyed a lot with the costumes of Harry, and professors Dumbledore and Snape!!
Our students were highly motivated and they made very varied and interesting works on topics related to the world of Harry Potter, such as: main characters and teachers in the books, animals and mythological creatures, Hogwarts Houses, the Quidditch game, the movies and the author J K Rowling.
They also made beautiful bookmarks and door handles with remarkable quotes and spells from Harry Potter’s books
The students of 1st ESO carried out projects in their bilingual subjects of Geography and Biology related to the topic of the English Week.

During our English Week we had the privilege of receiving the visit of Harry Potter’s books’ author JK Rowling and the same Harry Potter, the most famous wizard in the world!! They came to our school to answer all the questions that students made them-all kinds of questions about the books, characters and adventures and even dared with any questions about their private life!
After the press conference we had a trivia contest. Gryffindor students were the winners!!

READING THEATRE AND VIDEO SCREENING
The students of 1ºBachillerato did a short reading dramatization of one of the most known episodes of Harry Potter and the philosopher’s stone. It was about the Sorting Hat scene. We all enjoyed a lot with them!!
And to close this fantastic English Week, we could see the videos made by several groups of students of 3rd and 4th of ESO and 1st of Bachillerato. They all had fun moments shooting scenes taken from the Harry Potter films and demonstrated their abilities as filmmakers and actors and actresses.
Applause to all of them for their great participation in this English week and we are waiting for you next year!
