Media Studies

03jan2020-mediaIn this ever-changing world, where we all feel curious about finding out about current affairs, the mass media is the gateway into global awareness. In Lengua castellana y Literatura, Year 9 finished the term studying the mass media in the most direct and entertaining fashion possible: live! After visiting La Provincia's newspaper office, where they learned how a local paper is made, they headed to Radio Television Española's studios.

The most inquisitive students were able to access the production room and even give instructions to the presenter and the technicians, and the rest watched the programme live from the audience. Finally, students were interviewed by their teachers, the editors of the form groups' newspapers. Students will also be writing their own articles. Let's see what stories they tell!

You win some, you lose some

Thursday 19th December saw Tafira Primary travel to American School neighbours for a couple of festive fixtures. Both games were exciting and extremely fast-paced. First up was the Years 3&4 match.

Year 4's Héber scored the opening goal in the very first minute and then went on to complete a hat-trick. He was joined on the scoresheet by Year 3's Victor who ran rings around the opposition defence to record a devastating double. A 5-0 away win shows our youngsters are a force to be reckoned with.

The Years 5&6 put in a battling performance. Year 6's Lucia captained a strong BGSC side but even two goals apiece from classmate Carlos and Year 5's Fran was not enough to avert a 5-6 defeat to a relentless American side. Special thanks goes out to the Sixth Form's Ander and Antidio who refereed and dished out invaluable advice.

Multiplying their efforts

French test

18dec2019-frenchOn the 12th November, the Y10 students studying French took part in an exchange with the Lycée Français de Gran Canaria. They participated in different workshops in French to practise their language skills and then delivered workshops in English for the Lycée students.

It was a great opportunity for them to apply what they have learnt in the classroom in a different environment. They also improved their team work and leadership techniques. All in all, it was a very enjoyable experience!










The science of Christmas

17dec2019-science-treeYear 12 and 13 students prepared a Christmas tree with a difference; a Chemis-tree! The tree features colourful solutions of transition metals and also samples of silver created by a redox reaction carried out by students. Students will be tested on these reactions in Year 13 so, not only have we created a decoration for our classroom, we have given students the opportunity to review important chemistry content.
