V for Vegueta

30sep2019-museo-canarioOn Thursday 26th September, Year 9 enjoyed a fascinating morning out at the acclaimed Museo Canario and on the historic streets of Vegueta. Señor Rodríguez arranged the trip as we have been studying prehistoric Gran Canaria in Sociales. 9CB began their tour in the museum whilst 9MS walked through the ages in the cobbled pathways.

Both activities helped us better understand pre-Spanish culture and history. In the Museo Canario, we saw at first hand the living conditions of the canarii along with their mummies and pintaderas. On the streets of Vegueta, a guide told us how the aborigines arrived to the island and about the battles they fought against various invasion forces.

All in all, it was great fun. We could see up close the actual materials and tools used by the canarii Señor Rodríguez had been telling us about in class. The morning out broadened our horizons and reacquainted us with our island's past.

All Greek

27sep2019-potteryThe South School's Year 5 have been making Greek-style vases out of clay, as part of our topic about Ancient Greece. The children have been using different tools and techniques to create a hollow sphere and mould it into a vase shape. Students then added details such as the base, neck, and handles.

Sail away, sail away, sail away

26sep2019-sailingYear 6 from both South and Tafira schools recently successfully completed a three-day sailing course with the Escuela de Vela Joaquín Blanco in Puerto Rico. This was our 18th annual trip with the school, giving many of the children their first chance to sail on their own in Optimist boats. It's a great way for our students to develop their sea legs.

Puppet masters

What's SUP?

22jul2019-supAs part of Enrichment Week, Tafira Juniors spent a day developing new skills on Las Alcaravaneras beach. We tried our hands at SUP paddle boarding and kayaking, learned about water rescue, and generally had a great time on the beach and in the sea with our friends!
