On Wednesday, 30th of October, the pupils of 1rst and 2nd of a-grades went to Barcelona to participate in the tv program “Divendres” of TV3, directed by Xavi Coral, who presents the program from the studio, and by Espartac Peran, who visits every week one diferent village.

They went with the Spanish and literature teachers Ana Borbón and Pilar Ezpeleta. The aim of this trip was to be in one filming and learn about the media. The pupils who went told us it was a great experiencie, nice and funny. They learned a lot of things of the world of television. Some of them said that they thought that the recording plateau would be bigger than it actually is. Everything was controlled by a councilor who was telling the audience when to  applaude, and controlled the time they devoted to each part of the program. The sound of the audience is controlled by a cabin that is hidden. Inside there the sound was soundless.

The program who they witnessed was about current affairs, general interest and politics.


The pupils of 1st of ESO visited the “L’Observatori del Delta de l’Ebre”.

The aym was to learn new things and know the facilities of the Observatory. They visited a room where the teachers taught them how to measure an earthquake. They also showed the telescopes, and how all the information is retired to meteorology.

They went on 21st October and there were 49 pupils of 1st of ESO


Castanyada and Hallowee

In Catalonia we celebrate La Castanyada which consists of a meal of chestnuts, panellets sweet potato and preserved fruits, typically with moscatell  to drink. Around the time of this celebration, it is common to sell hot toasted chestnuts wrapped in a newspaper. In many places people often organise raffles of chestnuts and preserved fruit.

It seems that the tradition of eating this food comes from the fact that during All Saints night, the night before All Souls Day in the Christian tradition.Bell ringers would ring bells in commemoration of the dead into the early morning.

In Castanyada we go to the  sport center and eat chesnuts and panellet.


The word Halloween refers to the inherited traditional festival celebrated by Celtic, which has spread rapidly around the world, especially in  the anglosaxon countries.

Many centuries ago in Britain, Scotland and Ireland on 31st October celebrated the festival of Samhain, which coincided with the last day of the year according to the ancient Celtic and Anglo-Saxon calendars. Samhain was the god of the dead. Some sources indicate that the Gaelic word “Samhain” literally means “end of summer”. That day was celebrated Samhain, so was New Year’s Eve. At that time, large bonfires were lit on the mountains to chase away evil spirits. It was also believed that the souls of the dead visit their former homes to try to find a body they inhabit, and were accompanied by witches and spirits. So it lit no light in the houses, and people dressed as witches or demons so that no soul would inhabit their body.The symbol of Halloween is the pumpkin.In halloween we go from house to trick or trich. Then we give sweets or money, and we share the sweets and money. We disguise aswitches, skeltons…


The Nobel Awards

The Nobel Awards are celebrated one a year to “reward the greatest benefit to the humanity”.

Since 1901, they give those awards to people who have made a great discovery (like in physics), for who have written the best book…

The prize consists of a gold medal, a diplom and a cash prize, which depends on the earnings of the Nobel Institute. Five of the six prizes are celebrated in Stockholm (Sweden). There’s only one exception: the Peace award, which is celebrated in Oslo (Norway).


Alfred Nobel

Alfred Nobel (1833-1896) was a Swedish engineer. He invented the dinamite and in his testament he established that every year there would be prizes to people who made the greatest benefit to the humanity. Many people think that Alfred did this because the dinamite was used for the war and he made all his fortune thanks to it.

Her name is Olga Bertomeu. She was born in Reus, on 25th October in  1975, now she’s 38 years old.

When she finished her degree she was twenty- two years old she studied English philoghy in Tarragona, when she was younger she wanted to be a journalist. Now she is a teacher of English at the High School in Camarles.

She hasn’t always lived in the same place, before she lived in Reus and since she got married and now she lives in Deltebre, and she and his husband have got two sons.

She agrees with the independence for Catalonia, and she thinks about the cutout of money for education, it’s very unfair that things such as education and health services are affected by the economic crisis while politicians are becoming richer and richer.TPhoto_00002
