BOOK OF THE YEAR 2009-2010 1 ESO A
Pius Font I Quer is a fantastic school. The first thing you can see is a big playground where the students spend their free time during break time.
In the school there are three buildings with floors. On the first floor there is concierge, the dining room, the library, the toilets for girls and boys and some classrooms, and on the second and the third floor there are a lot of classrooms.
All the classrooms have the same structure. First of all there are some green chairs and tables for students. All the classrooms also have windows and this allows a lot of light in the classrooms. In our school, we can find everything we need: a gym, a library, a computer room, etc.
We have got 13 subjects in 1st ESO. Dolors is our tutorial teacher. We do tutorial 2 times a week. Dolors also teaches us Catalan. We learn the language that we usually use. We do PE in the gym 2 times a week. Manolo is our PE teacher. In Spanish we work on another language that we can use outside Catalonia.
In Natural Science we study the characteristics of the Earth and nature with JosĂŠ Antonio. Josep is our geography teacher and with him we study human history. In English, we study another language too. Itâ€™s good for children. We learn English with Rosa and David.
Juli is our maths teacher. We do maths 3 times a week. Its objective is to do different problems using the numbers.
In Music we work on auditions and its composers. In Technology we study the structures of the buildings.
In my classroom there are twenty nine students. 15 of them are girls and 14 are boys. We all do the same course (1st of ESO) but not all of us are the same age. In my class 4 students are 11 years old, 24 are 12 and 1 is 13. Most of my classmates come from Manresa, but some come from different parts or Catalonia (27) or Spain (0). Finally, 2 come from different countries.
I think my school is very cool !!!
FIRST DAY AT SCHOOL
WHERE IS MY SCHOOL? • This is the high school where I go. It’s in Manresa, in “La Parada”, next to La Salle school. • Its name is IES Pius Font I Quer.
WHAT IS THE SCHOOL LIKE? • It has a main building with the classrooms, gym, laboratories, library, bar, etc. • It has got a very big playground, basket and football field. • The classrooms are good, these photos are of the computer rooms, gym and library.
SUBJECTS • I do twelve subjects. • My favourite subjects are History and Geography, English and Languages. The other subjects I like but not much.
• Technology was a new subject for me and I was a little nervous for this.
MY CLASSMATES • In my classroom there are 29 students. Fifteen of them are girls and fourteen are boys. • My classmates came from different schools, so I didn’t know anybody • The majority live in Manresa (22 students), but some of them live in other villages, such as Sant Salvador de Guardiola (6) and Valls de Torroella (1)
THE FIRST DAY • I was very nervous and my classmates too. • Dolors, the tutor, told us how everything worked. • I was very happy when she said that Wednesday and Friday, there will not be class in the afternoon. • When the day was finished I felt that I enjoyed going to school.
. I go to I.E.S Pius Font I Quer. I start school at eight o’clock and I finish at half past twelve, half past one or half past five, it depends. There are many differents subjects, for example English, Technology, Science, P.E… • My favourite subjects are Maths and Science, because I like the numbers and animals and plants. In Maths we must to know adding, deducing, multiplying and dividing. Then we have Spanish an English. They’re very important for the future. The most difficult subject for me is Music, because I don’t like the history of music. I also like science because we sometimes watch documentaries. All the teachers give a lot of homework and exams. We don’t do Art but I don’t like it, so it is better. I like I.T because I like all the sport but my favourite sport is football. • I like all the subjects except Music. The best time in the I.E.S Pius Font I Quer is breaktime.
â€˘ At my school there are different subjects that are difficult and others that are very easy. In our school we do Catalan, Mathematics, Spanish,English,English Project,etc.

And on the second floor there are a lot of classrooms. First of all, in the middle of the classrooms there are some green chairs and tables.
• In our school we can find everything we need. There’s a gym for the P.E. lesson, a library for the students who want to read or study and a computer room, where we can study information technology. • In my school we study different subjects. All of them are interesting, but some of them are more difficult than maths for example.
â€˘ I like my school very much because I have got a lot of friends.
I usually wear jeans and shirts or T-shirts every day. But not all people do the same.
Some people wear casual or formal clothes, but the majority of students wear trendy and cool clothes.
Girls often wear things like a tartan shirt with shorts and trainers, or maybe a colourful blouse with trousers or jeans. A few girls sometimes wear skirts with tights and a blouse or a jumper.
Boys often wear a simple T-shirt or a sweater with jeans or also a tracksuit. The minority of the boys wear baggie clothes and sometimes a cap.

THE ZOO Dear Adrià, On 8th of April we went to the zoo to see all the animals that there are there. At eight o’clock we took a bus and at half past nine we arrived. At quarter to ten we started to see the animals. The first one was a little kangaroo. Then we saw Llamas. We saw a lot of animals like lizards, insects, snakes, dolphins, seals and so on, but my favourite animals were the lions, tigers, panthers, jaguars… They’re amazing, but I think that they are always locked there, and they can’t run, live in the nature. There was a crazy elephant. It always moved the head, like us when we’re listening to music!!! At two o’clock more or less we went to the shop to buy something, but I didn’t buy anything,
because everything was very expensive. We took a lot of photographs. Iâ€™ll show you when you come to visit me. At the end, we went to take a bus and we arrived in Manresa at half past five. It was a wonderful day. See you soon, Climent
SKIING IN GUILS Dear aunt Elena and uncle Jose, We had a great time skiing on Tuesday 9th February 2010, when we went to Guils. I went with my classmates and my teachers on a school trip. At eight o'clock we left Manresa by bus. We traveled for one hour and a half. When we arrived, we we went to a mountain refuge to leave the bags and to take the skis. After that, we started to ski. Its was very funny! At the end, we played with snow and drank hot chocolate. It was delicious!
Then we returned to Manresa by bus. I would like to repeat it! See you soon, Zohra.
HALLOWEEN At our school there are a lot of events, at this moment we have celebrated the Halloween, which was on 1st November but at the school we celebrated it on 31st October. I liked this celebration because we can choose the activity we can do, I tried football and we reached the semi final. Besides football, there were more activities for example basketball, ping-pong, Nintendo DS, the disco etcâ€Ś I suppose that the following events that we will do will be as funny as Halloween.
I think that the events will be Christmas, Easter, Carnival, etc. Iâ€™m waiting for the Carnival because it is what I like most.
