COMING BACK FROM WALES

In October 2018 we had our Erasmus+ meeting in Wales. We have two different partner schools from Wales: Ysgol Dyffrun Taf and Ysgol y Strade. The schools are about 40 kilometers away from each other. The students were staying in host families in these two cities and the teachers were staying in the city of Carmarthen that is located in the middle. The participating students from our school were Paula, Lorena, Antonio and Rafa from 2nd year of Bachillerato  and teachers Marta Fernández and Ana Carmona.

We started our trip early on Saturday morning and landed in Málaga. We had to wait in Málaga for a time until our flight to Bristol. When we arrived in Bristol,it was freezing cold. Then, a bus took us to the meeting point where the Welsh families would be picking up our students.


We spent the first two days at Dyffrun Taf School. First in the program we had the videos that every team had made about the equality issues in their cities or countries. We also heard songs performed by a talented choir and lectures for example about Growth Mindset and a speech by Keith Towler, Chair of United Nations Convention on Rights of the Child for Wales. Furthermore, the students had an art workshop where they created their own souvenirs and after that we visited the County Hall of Carmarthen together. A journalist from a local newspaper even wrote an article about our visit.

From the 8th to the 14th of October, a group of 4 students ( Paula Martín, Lorena Salas, Antonio Expósito y Rafael Aceña) and two teachers ( Marta Fernández and Ana Carmona) will be travelling to Wales to participate in the second formative activity programmed in our project. This time we will be visiting Carmarthen and Llanelli region, a beautiful green Welsh rural area next to the jagged coastline. Among the educative activities, we will  learn Welsh and folk dancing, we will listen topopular Welsh singing, visit St. David´s cathederal in Camarthen, walk around Swansea and Bristol and get to know deeper their culture, educative system , way of living and thinking and traditions ( singing, dancing rugby and gastronomy).

Students will stay with their host families with whom they have already started to communicate. We are sure this journey will be an enriching experience for the 6 of us and will make us improve our skills in English and widen our knowledg about this country´s culture  and incredibly varied , wild and well-kept Nature.

Merry Christmas and happy winter holidays


Year 2017 is coming to an end and with it, we have been enjoying our adventure Erasmus 14 months. Months full of emotions, remembrances, effort, hard work, journeys and so many wonderful people warmly installed in our lives forever. The summary of this year is highly positive: we have travelled together, teachers and students, and we have got to know one another much better, we have improved our English and this experience has helped us to know more about our neighbour country: Portugal. We have learnt how to travel, how not to get lost, how to help one another, what it feels like when you are away from home, when you feel lonely and how to behave in all kind of situations. Our experience has been meaningful and enriching because we have got over our prejudices and complexes, because we have tasted wonderful food and seen breath-taking landscapes, because we have learnt another languages and heard unforgettable sounds and music. And above all, this year has been intense and rich because we have become stronger, wiser and more experienced, because we have felt part of a warm, friendly , open-minded and welcoming humanity.

Happy Christmas and looking forward to our next Erasmus year 2018

INTERNATIONAL MEETING IN BRAGA 9-13 OCTOBER

From the 9th to the 15th of October , our second teaching/learning Erasmus activity was held in the Portuguese city of Braga. The Spanish participants were two teachers and 6 students. In this meeting we had the opportunity to attend several motivating and challenging activities such as getting to know better the Portuguese educative system, language, music , culture and gastronomy.
There has been time and space for lectures, students´presentations on attention to students´with disabilities and special educative needs, we have visited several associations which deal with physical and mental handicapped people and victims of gender violence. Morover, interesting and exciting cultural visits were organized such as a trip to Guimaraes and Porto and of course, we had several workshops to follow the development of our project together with class observation in the Portuguese High School. Here is the minutes of a wonderful experience written by our students.

OUR FIRST WEEKEND IN PORTUGAL ( 7TH-8TH OF OCTOBER)
Well, this experience started on Saturday when we took our airplane at 8.15 a.m., so we had to be there at 7.15 a.m. We all were excited and really happy (and, to be honest, tired at that hour). We arrived to Madrid and we divided us in two groups because one flight was leaving before the other. So, the other group whose flight left after had the oppotunity to visit the Bernabeu, where a lots of important football match are played. We took the flight and we arrived to Porto at almost lunch time, so we were exploring the city a little bit just when we had already left our bags and suitcases, and after that we ate in a traditional and small restaurant where the lunch was great. Afther that, we were making time visiting the centre and its shops while the other group
was arriving. When they came, we all went to the apartament again. It was really cool, with 3 bathrooms and 4 bedrooms, 1 kitchen and 1 living room. There, we had a shower and decided where we would sleep. Then, we went out and ate in a wonderful place: the port in the river. The view fascitaned all of us. We wanted to stay in Porto for all the trip! After that, teachers allowed us to go out more time: at 1 a.m. in the apartament. So, with our happiness´s faces, we went out. We were exploring the roads for five minutes when we found two nice Portuguese girs, and we ask them where to go. They came with us to a pub, when we could dance and drink some refreshments. We arrived home punctual, and we ate some ice-cream in front of the TV. The morning after, we visited again the river, but the view was completely different with the sun´s shine. We ate in Mc Donald´s and we took the train at 5 p.m. So, at 6 p.m. we were already in Braga. Families were waiting for us in the train station and the real experience had started.
