Animal magic

22mar2019-animal-magicAs part of their topic work on animals, Tafira Year One visited Granja El Tío Isidro on Tuesday 20th March. We saw Canarian pigs, goats, sheep, chicks, rabbits, frogs, geese and some turkeys. What's more, we even went into the pens of many of these animals to feed and stroke them. All in all, we learned lots about the animals and have enjoyed interacting with them in their natural environment.

Feeling hot hot hot

18mar2019-climate-changeAs hundreds of thousands of students demonstrated around the world on Friday 15th March to demand that more is done to tackle climate change, Year 3 children in the South School also decided to take the opportunity to have their say. Parents visiting the school to watch Carnival performances got more than they bargained for when Year 3 performed a dramatic dance to show the effect of climate change on our planet and then chanted and sang, questioning what is going to be done to save their planet. They were proud to be a part of a global movement of young people fighting for action and change!

Red sky at night, fire alight

18mar2019-theaterOn Wednesday 13th March, Year 9 students enjoyed an unforgettable experience. The enigmatic book La noche de fuego by Francisco J. Quevedo, which we read in class, came to life after arriving at our first destination: the Pérez Galdós Theatre. The author was waiting for us, and he very kindly answered all the questions that we bombarded him with. His charisma and his unexpected answers surprised us as we learnt so many secrets of the museum which were hidden between the book's lines.

After this enlightening question-and-answer session, we went up on the theatre's roof and enjoyed views of the city which contained even more surprises (including a film production!). Next we stopped off at some locations from the book where traces of the characters could still be found, before the day out concluded at Benito Pérez Galdós house-museum, which was full of the memories and belongings of the celebrated Canarian author. He's considered Canarian literature's finest writer, with the pages of his novels dripping with social realism. Pérez Galdós is our very own Charles Dickens, a Spanish Leo Tolstoy even.

School of fish

18mar2019-fishOn Friday 8th March, Tafira's Year 4 received some fascinating schooling outside the classroom at Las Palmas de Gran Canaria's Poema del Mar. We learned about the natural habitat of the marine animals and lizards at this aquarium. The friendly and informative staff also explained to us about the conservation programme they've set up to ensure future generations continue to see these wonderful creatures we share Planet Earth with.

Pride of the Cubs

14mar2019-football2Congratulations to our Young Lions, Tafira Years 3 and 4 Football team, who won the league after defeating CEIP Pepe Dámaso 3-2 away on Wednesday 13th March. Fran scored an outstanding hat-trick Cristiano Ronaldo style against a stubborn Atlético Madridesque defence and Alicia Bergasa repelled everything thrown at her in goal.

Years 5 and 6 were not so fortunate, however, losing 5-2 to the same opponents. Year 6's Angel at his most agile scored both goals. Dante (Year 5) made his debut in goal and stopped many shots from Pepe Dámaso's trademark lightning counter-attacks.
