OUR INTERESTING TRIP TO GIBRALTAR
On the 25th March 2015, the groups of 2nd, 3rd and 4th year of ESO from IES Mirador del Genil went on a school trip to Gibraltar by bus, which is a British Overseas Territory with many interesting places.
We began our adventure when we got to the customs, where we had to show our passports or ID cards so we could enter British Territory. When we got through, we all made our way to the minibuses parking lot.
When the minibuses got there we split into two groups to get in to the main parts of Gibraltar; we had to cross the airport runway, and then we started the tour around Gibraltar.
The bus drivers explained with detail the most important monuments and the history behind them.
When we got to the Europa Point we stopped and took plenty of photos; then we slowly made our way back to the minibuses and went up to one of the highest points in Gibraltar, where St. Michael’s Cave is. There we found the monkeys, the best thing we saw in Gibraltar; they were amazing and we can’t forget how cute they are. They showed a lot of intelligence, since they can steal your food without you niticing, and they were hilarious too.
After that, we made our way back down and the bus took us to Grand Casemates Square, where all the main shops and restaurants are. We were there from about 2pm to 4:30 pm. Luckily, some of the shops accepted euros!
Finally, we arrived at Iznájar at 8:45 pm more or less.
Everybody loved this wonderful trip; all of us would love to go again soon. Here are some of the student’s opinions:
-“The trip to Gibraltar was amazing!”- Jorge Valverde Rabasco.
-“This was a new experience in my life, I want to go again!”- Tamara Casado Arjona.
-“It’s a fantastic place to visit”- Felipe Pacheco Soldado.
TALLER "MUSIC HERO, EMPRENDE TU RETO"
, emprende tu reto” parte de una estrategia de Andalucía Emprende basada en la combinación de dos elementos que se consideran claves para los proyectos educativos con jóvenes: juego y tecnología.
El objetivo principal es desarrolar el espíritu emprendedor y como objetivos específicos se persiguen los siguientes:
− Dar a conocer las habilidades del emprendedor.
− Poner en práctica las habilidades propias a través de una simulación.
− Desarrollar un autoconocimiento y una reflexión de las propias habilidades.
− Motivar el desarrollo de proyectos propios.
El taller se desarrolló durante tres horas, teniendo las siguientes partes:
1. Una introducción sobre cultura emprendedora.
2. Posteriormente, se hace una explicación del funcionamiento del juego.
3. Una partida de 90 minutos de duración en la que intentarán conseguir que un grupo de música creado por los jóvenes de forma virtual evolucione hasta alcanzar lo más alto en cuanto a éxito mundial. Para ello tienen que planificar ensayos y conciertos, grabar discos y superar las dificultades que otros jugadores les ponen en el transcurso de la partida. En definitiva, la dinámica del juego tiene la finalidad de mantener constantes paralelismos con la creación o el desarrollo de un proyecto empresarial propio.
4. Dinámica de grupo, con análisis de resultados del ecualizador de habilidades emprendedoras, así como preguntas de relacionar acciones del juego con las correspondientes habilidades necesarias para llevarlas a cabo.
5. Por último, cumplimentan un cuestionario de satisfacción que servirá para la elaboración del informe final de la actividad.
Este mismo taller, que se ha realizado por parte del alumnado de 4ºB, será trabajado por el grupo de 4ºA el jueves 30 de abril. Agradecemos a la técnica del CADE, Rosa Espinar su implicación en el mismo.
TRIP TO CÓRDOBA
On the 20th of February year 2ºA and 3ºA went on a school trip to Córdoba to watch a show called “Frankenstein”.
The bus dropped us off and we went to find the threatre. We got a bit lost, even though both of the teachers had maps. In the end, we found it. When we arrived there were a lot of children from other schools. Soon after we got there, the show started. The show was very good, although we had to sit on very uncomfotable chairs for an hour and a half; but it was fine. Afterwards, we went and got the bus to go to the Mezquita.
Before going to the Mezquita, we went to a lovely square with a beautiful fountain in the centre to have breakfast. We also had time to have a look around the square. Then, we went into the Mezquita. We all had to stay in a group, but unfortunately some of the group went alone without any teachers and of course the security saw them alone and took them outside. The others carried on looking around the Mezquita. We were all admiring all of the different sculptures and statues that were inside. There was one part where we went which had famous Arabic signatures. They were not normal, instead they were different shapes. After we had seen it all, we went outside to catch up with the others and we all had a photo taken. We had to find someone to take the photo so we found a man, but he refused. So then we asked a lady and she was very friendly and accepted.
When we were crossing the “Puente Romano” we found a man on a stool painting, so the class of 2ºA stayed and watched him, meanwhile the others had gone. He did these paintings only using his fingers. He used different colour oil paints and he would paint on a rectangular piece of glass and then put another piece of glass behind to protect it. He did landscapes and flower paintings. First of all, he did a landscape one and as we had spent our time watching it; Carmen María bought it for the highschool. Afterwards, he did a flower painting and he put Iznájar in the bottom corner, which he did with his nail. This man was over the moon, because nearly all of us bought one. He was a very talented man!
Finally, after having our photo taken we all went to “El Arcángel”; a very big shopping centre. First of all, we had lunch and then we went round the shops. At the end of the day, we all went to get the bus to return home.
This day has been wonderful!
