eTwinning Project Our school newspaper since 1972

“Read all about it” June 2013

EDITORIAL Con este trabajo hemos pretendido utilizar el idioma inglés como vehículo de comunicación y aproximación hacia gente de otros lugares y culturas mediante el programa europeo eTwinning, más allá de su utilización en el reducido universo de la clase. Debemos por tanto valorar el esfuerzo, realizado de manera voluntaria por nuestros alumnos de 5º y 6º, la ilusión y el compromiso mostrado por todos ellos para su realización. Esperamos que este sea la primera de muchas participaciones de nuestro centro en Programas Europeos, la dimensión que nos faltaba para completar nuestra aspiración a ser sección bilingüe. Creemos que se han cumplido con creces los objetivos planteados mediante el trabajo cooperativo para la toma de conciencia de la verdadera utilidad del aprendizaje de un idioma: la comunicación. To our partners: we hope you like our work, our aim was to show you where do we live and some facts about us and our culture using the English language. We expect that this is only the first of many other projects that we can make together. To our students: CONGRATULATIONS YOU’VE DONE A GREAT JOB. Andrés Ramos Fernández

Bye Bye School. A Personal experience Hello, my name is Guillermo Iván Martínez Díaz and I am a student in 6th grade at Santa Ana school. Next year I will study in a High school.

Cuenca is about 56 thousand inhabitants. In winter it´s very cold, in summer it´s very hot. In Cuenca there are parks, museums, monuments, restaurants, and hotels. Popular places to visit are the Hanging houses, San Pablo Bridge, the Cathedral, The Mangana Tower and the Main Square. Cuenca is World Heritage.

The Museum of Spanish Abstract Art houses exhibits, permanently, a collection of paintings and sculptures by Spanish artists of abstract generation of the 50s and 60s. The museum opened its doors on July 1st, 1966, because Fernando Zobel donated his collection to the Juan March Foundation in 1980. Located in the Hanging Houses of Cuenca, in a medieval building, the museum has suffered several renovations. It has spaces for temporary exhibitions and develops educational programs for school groups, families, etc.., and includes guided tours of the collection and temporary exhibitions. In the library-museum shop are available several editions of catalogs, books, original artworks and reproductions.

A School trip: La Fuente de las Tablas The students of 5th grade spent a week in october in place named “Fuente de las Tablas” near our town. We did many activities as canoeing in the reservoir of La Toba, archery, hockey on grass, zip-line, guessing song , orientation and we played a lot in a large room of games too. When we went to the dining room we ate: potato salad, veal steak with French fries, Macaroni and, and omeltte...They are not our favorite food, but they were good. Boys and girls were in separate rooms. Each group had a room. There was a spacious bathroom and a bedroom with two bunk beds. We had a great time.

A School trip: Toledo Last November we went to Toledo for the chidren’s rights day. Fifth and sixth levels of primary went to Toledo’s parliament, sat down and listened the 50 laws of the children. Girls of sixth of primary read some of them. We took a photo with the members of the parliament. When we left, they gave us sandwiches, fruit and juice. After that we visited the Army Museum and we saw swords, helmets, a bog room. The armors had bullet holes. When we went into the room, a woman told us a lot of things about wars. The place was incredible, huge and really interesting. When we left the museum, we went to the bus and we came back to Cuenca.

We like cooking In Spain, we have typical food as: morteruelo, potato omelette, gingerbread, paella or zarajo. They´re all good.

How to make a Spanish Omelette Ingredients: 6 eggs 3 potatoes 1 small onion 1 green pepper 2 glasses of olive oil Salt and a parsley leaf Peel and chop the onion. Clean green pepper, remove the stem and seeds and cut into cubes. Clean the potatoes with water. Peel them, cut them in half lengthwise and then cut each slice into thin crescents 1/2 inch. Put all in the pan with olive oil, and fry over low heat for 25-30 minutes. Remove the fried potatoes and wring. Put the oil into a bowl and set aside. Clean the pan with kitchen paper. Break the eggs, put them in a large bowl and whisk them up. Add salt to your liking, add the fried potatoes, onion and pepper and mix well. Place the pan back on the heat, add a splash of the reserved oil and add the mixture. Stir a bit with a wooden spoon and wait (20 seconds) to start curdling. Separate the edges, cover the pan with a dish of larger diameter than the pan and turn it over. Throw it back to curdle on the other side. Noa, Laura and LucĂ­a HORIZON page 14

Sports The Spanish football team played the match against Ireland in the Confederations Cup on a baseball field. Spain won 2-0, goals from Mata and Soldado.

Rafa Nadal played the final Rolang Garros. He played it against the Spanish Ferrer, and Nadal won, although Ferrer played very well.

Marc Márquez, Spanish motorcycle pilot, won Dani Pedrosa, another Spanish rider and Valentino Rosi. Márquez, is a new pilot in the Moto GP category and we think he is the best.
