SHAPE DRAWING

During these four weeks, the first cycle group has experienced the drawing of shapes from movements that arise in nature based on line and curve. First they have experienced vertical, horizontal, diagonal, long, short, intermittent, curved and winding straight lines. Meanwhile, the second group has been introduced to mirror shapes that combine the different straight lines or curves experienced last year.

DRAWING

In this period, the 3rd and 4th class experienced geometrical shapes and linear, curved and woven forms. Different activities were implemented to raise the awareness for the forms, explore the movement and cultivate the imagination through connecting different senses. Before drawing it in their notebooks, the children laid the form with materials like stones, acorns or sticks, walked and traced it and drew it on small black boards with chalk. “In this way one educates the child toward a real feeling for form, toward a feeling for harmony, for symmetry, and toward a feeling of relationships. In this way one can guide the child into those harmonies which also exist in the world around us”. Rudolf Steiner

ANCIENT GREECE TO THE DEATH OF ALEXANDER THE GREAT

Class 5th and 6th began the term remembering the Illiad and reviewed certain stories of Achilles and positioned themselves in Ancient Greece. Throughout the block they have learned about Alexander the Great, and through his life story they have understood the wars and battles of his time, travelled the route of his conquered territories and learnt a little about what it would have been like to live in his time. As the block was in English, they have used it to improve speech, spelling, grammar and punctuation.

THE MOUNTAIN CROSSING

There are experiences to be made; plant a tree, write a book, do your first 3-day trek at 12 years old. An experience that leaves no one indifferent, where everything that happens helps us take out what we carry inside and makes us grow a little more as people. From Deià to Tossals Verds, passing through Sollér, Barranc de Biniaraix, Cúber reservoir, Font des Noguer and Font de Prat. Where we enjoyed a bath in Llucalcari or a lemonade in the possession of Son Mico. They have made their first journey, some thought they would not be able to, others expressed it openly, but all have achieved what they thought was almost impossible, to overcome themselves in the face of all the difficulties and challenges they have encountered. during the journey, where they have felt that they have grown up and the look of what we have every day has changed. After weeks of looking back what is left are very intense, fun and exciting memories, which will always be with us. After the crossing for sure something has changed!

CRAFTS PERIOD

Seeing a craftsman use his hands to transform the raw material and turn it into a useful or decorative product is for children like a magic gesture. They are amazed and admired by the incredible ability of the craftsman to create so easily and quickly that product that they now have before their eyes, when a few minutes ago it was a pile of mud, wool, wicker, leather, or a piece of wood or iron. They have the ability to admire the wonders that surround us: those of nature and those that human beings are able to create. Children scrutinize every move, gesture and attitude of the craftsman. Then they enjoy picking up tools and materials and imitating exactly the same movements they just observed. If they are allowed to experiment, they discover that it is not as easy as it seemed and that all creation requires practice, patience and perseverance. Then, they value even more the skill and knowledge of the craftsman. We have been visited by 3 artisans: -In Pere Parets, espadrilles. -Antonella Farris, tin specialist. -In Raül Blanco, carpenter and teacher of the school. Thank you for your collaboration!

HOUSES OF THE WORLD

The children have been listening to stories in English about all the dwellings people live in, in various locations around the world and how the materials and structures vary depending on environment, location and the needs of the people and cultures they live in. The children were invited to make their own creations and present them to their peers. It has been a fun, creative and successful experience for all of us. All of the projects look amazing and the children have all done a fantastic job. Well done to each and everyone of you!

THE SEEDS PROCESS

The boys and girls have collaborated in writing the posters that name the plants in the garden, thus doing their bit to create the School's Botanical Garden. In the garden they have taken care of collecting and sowing countless seeds that they have seen grow. The last ones, sunflowers, especially aroused his curiosity: "This plant comes out of a pipe!" They watched with wide-awake eyes and with great interest as the seedling pushed its way toward the light with the pipe shell still on as a makeshift hat. They have been the guardians and guardians of the seeds. They have collected them, they have planted them, they have tasted them. As if they were the seeds that have just germinated and are growing with strength and energy, they have dedicated themselves to their work with interest and perseverance.

“THE MERCHANT OF VENICE” BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

Each year the drama creation process begins with an immersion in the atmosphere and the images of the story, through narrations that offer the global vision. Starting from the general idea step by step we approach the particular, finally reaching the detail. Dynamic, rhythmic and coordinated movement openings develop presence, listening, synchrony and group cohesion. The listened rounds foster collaboration and a common vision of the process. Groups of girls and boys are formed who create, prepare and present the different scenes of the play to live the story and get to know the characters and the atmospheres that make it up. Finally, the characters are distributed and a more detailed process begins that includes movement, gesture and word. The art of the word, eurythmy and musical creation fill the space of the performing arts. Participation in different workshops such as construction of scenery, script, props, posters, costumes, complete the process. Collective creation is promoted, developing cooperation, responsibility and creativity for a group objective. The final performance of the work provides the growth and inner experience shared with the community.

BUILDING A CLAY OVEN

During this last month, and in connection with the last period of the course that who goes through the trades, the second cycle class has carried out a project to build a clay oven. For this we have had the visit of Ilan, who has guided us throughout the process. In order to carry it out, they have gone through different stages where mathematics, physics, chemistry, modelling and construction have been worked: -First, the students were familiarized with the natural ingredients by testing the soil they were going to use and making the so-called “cookies”. -They learned about the correct amounts: the proportion of soil, sand and straw. -They worked the mud with their feet and learned to build with it. -They learned the ecological insulation method. -They worked in teams dividing the work and assuming responsibilities. All the students really enjoyed the work, they were highly motivated at all times and they gave themselves to the task with enthusiasm.

AGILE HANDS, AGILE THINKING

Children in their last year of Nursery Education begin an artistic process that accompanies them until the end of the journey: the making of a bag through weaving a loom.
