TV3 visit 4 ESO

TV3 visited Mestral last Thursday, as the boys from 4th ESO were going to appear in action as part of a debate on single-sex and coeducational schools. We thank the cameramen Èric and Juli for their time and for coming to visit us. The debate is to be shown on the programme 'Els Matins' on Monday 14th March.

Our First English Week : Home To Home at Mestral

From 29th February to 4th March, four English teachers, Cristian, Jonathan, Jack and Jordan, who form part of the Home To Home organisation, have been working all week with 4th Primary, 1st and 2nd ESO. The pupils have not been doing English lessons as such, but rather a series of activities and tasks which have been completed with English as the means of communication. Work in the morning has been done in the classroom, while the afternoon sessions have involved taking part in English team games in the playground.

The feedback from the boys has been extremely positive, with most of them saying that they would like to carry on with this type of work all the time! They have had to make the effort to communicate in any way they can with the teachers, by using sign language, gestures, translators, etc., which is exactly what will happen in real life when they are faced with the reality of having to express themselves in a foreign language.
