Hello families! Do you like doing experiments but you don’t want to use a lot of material? You’re in the right place! 4th graders in l’Arrabassada did an easy experiment about a nature disaster: A tornado!
The oldest ones of the school are working on the weather and recycling topic. This week they have done an experiment about a bottled tornado. The experiment was very easy, so if you want, you can do it at home.
- Jar of glass or plastic
- Dish soap
They have worked together to create hypothesis and trying to find the correct quantity of the materials to create the tornado. Finally they achieved the goal! After that we remembered the steps that we followed to do the tornado and we drew it on a paper.
Here you can see how much fun they had!
We are the P4 students from l’Arrabassada. During these weeks we’ve been working and learning about the animals and the colors. How? We started with a story called “Dear Zoo” by Rod Campbell. It’s about a girl who wants a new pet and writes a letter to the zoo asking them if they can send her an animal. The zoo sends her a lot of animals: an elephant, a giraffe, a camel, a lion… but she thinks they aren’t good enough for being pets. Finally, the zoo sends her a dog and it’s the perfect pet!
We’ve learned about the colors too, connecting them with the animals: the frog is green, the elephant is grey…
This has been the last week working on it and we’ve created our own zoo. We’ve colored the animals, always asking for the crayons to the teacher in English.
We are also learning how to ask “What’s your name?” and answer: My name is…. And how to ask: “How are you today?” and answer: “I’m happy/I’m sad/I’m hungry”.
In fact, it’s been a good month for us! It’s been very funny!!!!
We are the 1st graders in Escola l’Arrabassada.

First, they have enjoyed listening to the story about a goose who wants to be different from the other geese. Thus, Suzy starts to imitate other animals: slides like a penguin, jumps like a kangaroo, swims like a seal… . Read more
Last month children from 4th 5th and 6th grade from “Escola la Vitxeta” in Reus were working on the sea animals. They were able to research some information in the computer about their favourite sea animal and then show what they found to the class.
After that, we did a lapbook about the storybook “Sharing a Shell”. The lapbook has the characters of the story and what they do on the story. It also includes a picture of the student’s favourite animal under an envelope, where they can keep whatever they want. And finally, it includes a game similar to rock, paper, scissors, but with the characters of the story.
The final products were amazing! Read more
These past weeks in La Vitxeta, the children from P4 and P5 have been working the animals: how they move, what they do and where they live.
