It has been two long years working on our Comenius project. All of us have enjoyed a lot during this time, although sometimes the work has been hard. This project has taught us how different we are, but above all, that we are the same people in different countries. The activities we have done (the weather chart, power point presentations, pictures, photographs, trips, exhibitionsâ€Ś) have shown our partnerships how we work, where we live and who we are. THANK YOU TO COMENIUS EXPERIENCE because WE HAVE GROWN UP AS EUROPEAN CITIZENS.
This is the three years old classroom. Itâ€™s a casttle because weâ€™re studing the life in them,long time ago. We see our classroom so: The table
We and our friends

We’ll painted all the seasons But it’s not finished yet. SUMMER
“This is my school”
My school has got a small garden. We’ve got tomatoes, lettuces, carrots, onions… and a compost box. My garden has many perfumed flowers. Roses prick, daffodils don’t. My school has got a small garden. Yesterday we plant little turnips and next week cucumbers.
Neighbourhood and grandparents look at my garden and smile. Tomorrow I’m going to eat red strawberries and before summer holiday lettuces..
My friends and I have lunch at school and we love Conchi (the cooker) very much.
I like the gym because weâ€™ve got stilts, balls, ropes, mattress and a lot of funny things I donâ€™t know their names.
The books from the library are really funny, but I prefer comics and magazines.
Computers are great fun!!!.

Art in San Sebastián de los Reyes…
We love art. EXHIBITIONS.
There are several exhibiton halls in our town. We visit them so often, and later we work about what we have seen before. One of this exhibition halls is called Martín Chirino and this school year we watched the work art about a painter called Ángel de Pedro. His painting is in a cubist style that we knew before because we had already seen Picasso work pieces at Reina Sofía Museum in Madrid. His works inspired us, so we paint like this. The work art by painter Ramón Gozález de la Torre was made on different techniques but attract particularly our attention a woman dressed as a typical Sevillian, so we painted as you can see in the next page.
We are artists tooâ€Ś
THE AUDITORIUM Every year, the school's students performed at a festival organized by members of the AMPA. On this occasion, we, the students in 6th grade, performed the Thriller dance in honor of the recently deceased King of Pop: Michael Jackson. We love dancing and everyone was thrilled with our performance.
The town hallâ€Ś
Our Town Hall. Our city was founded in 1492. A feudal lord had oppressed the peasants who worked for him, so that those citizens could no longer resist and asked for help from the Catholic Kings of Spain. The Kings helped them to establish a new town built around a hermitage in honor of San Sebastian. Because of that, the town is called San Sebastiรกn de los Reyes.
Soâ€Ś I see my town hall.
Running of the Bulls (last week of August) The Running of the Bulls (in Spanish encierro) , is a practice that involves running in front of six bulls that have been let loose, on a course of a sectioned-off subset of a town's streets. Unlike bullfights, which are performed by professionals, anyone may participate in an encierro. The purpose of this event is the transport of the bulls from the off-site corrals where they had spent the night, to the bullring where they would be killed in the evening. Spanish lore says the true origin began in North-eastern Spain during the early 14th century. While transporting cattle in order to sell at the market, men would attempt to speed the process by hurrying their cattle using tactics of fear and excitement. After years of this practice, the transportation and hurrying began to turn into a competition. The festivities here in San Sebastian de los Reyes are well known, dating from 1525. Riders and enthusiasts come from all over Spain.
Spanish omelette recipe.
Six eggs Four potatoes Oil Salt Onion (if you like)
Instructions We peel the potatoes and we cut into slices. We do the same with the onion and we throw some salt. So we throw this into a frying pan with some olive oil that we have heated before. We fry it slowly, when the potatoes are soft enough we drain it and we put it in a dish. Now we beat the eggs to mix everything and we put into the fry pan with a little oil until both sides are fried.
