Proyecto: Con sello propio (Diseño de escudos)
La docente Cristina Rizzo nos hizo saber que "Los chicos de P3A plasmaron algunos contenidos desarrollados en el marco del Proyecto de Autoestima, en escudos que representan al curso. Por un lado, hubo un trabajo de reconocimiento de gustos, valores, ideas y deseos propios del grupo. Luego, un proceso de simbolización, sobre la base de una estructura heráldica típica, que analizamos en clase, a partir del escudo institucional del BDS. Finalmente, con algunos aportes de las familias, llegaron los escudos, que engalanaron los pasillos de Primary..."
Lengua, Historia, Lógica, Ética, Plástica y Diseño... ¡Cuántas disciplinas caben en un proyecto!
Proyecto: El fantasma de Gardel ataca de nuevo
La profesora Lorena Scigliano hechó a rodar la imaginación de los chicos tomando como disparador la lectura del libro "El fantasma de Gardel ataca el Abasto", de E. Gonzalez, y nos cuenta sobre este proyecto que se enmarca a partir del área de lengua.
Como muestra el gráfico, el proyecto integró distintas áreas de contenido creando una verdadera red de conocimientos.
"A partir de la lectura del libro, los alumnos investigaron acerca de la historia del barrio de Balvanera, del mercado, sobre Gardel y el tango. Además en el proyecto participaron otras áreas como Arte con el fileteado, Informática con la programación de la presentación y Música con el tango como danza y como canción. La experiencia resultó muy buena, fue una producción enriquecedora."

Project: Life under the sea
Teachers Alicia Rodríguez and Sandra Cecchini report:
"We started the project investigating about the characteristics of living things. Then we concentrated on life under the sea. The class was divided into seven groups and each worked on different sea animals.
Juani (Juan Ignacio Souto), Gastón (Kuracz) and Martín (Roccatagliata) worked on lobsters and this is the outcome of their investigation."
Gastón, congratulations on your fantastic web page!
Another group dealt with Starfish.

Windows on the World
Teachers Mónica Douglas and Alina Tomino report:
"Thanks to the Internet now P4 is getting overseas. We plunged into the project of corresponding schools abroad and contacted one in Kent (England), Woodchurch Primary School. We dealt with different aspects of school life and the way we work at Project Time. It was a perfect continuity of the project "friendly letters" that started within the class and later crossed its bounderies.
Below, you'll find some of the letters sent to e-pals abroad."
Our names are Nicolás and Agustín, we're two boys. We're nine years old. We're going to write about what we do in the classroom and about the uniform we wear. We're working on a project about food. We'll soon do a project on Vikings. In the morning we learn Spanish. In the afternoon we learn English. We've 14 more special subjects such as Physical Education, Technology, Drama, Music, Singing and Religion. We sometimes work in pairs, like today. Every Friday we have an activity called SPECIAL DAY!
A child is chosen and he/she has to complete a mind map, with personal information. We write our favourite things such as books, our goals, what we think about as, favourite pets, our favourite place at home and our favourite food. Every child has to tell the Special Day child something nice about him.
Our first project was Friendly letters that's why we have a copybook called Friendly Deeds copybook. Every week we take it home so our family can write messages too.
Every day we have 3 children have their presentations. We have to prepare a special subject each one because at more or less at the End of the year we have Trinity College exam.
In two weeks time we'll have our winter holidays. In Argentina it's winte r now.

We have Spanish in the morning and English in the afternoon. Our Project is 'Food'. We have Presentations, Special days and Friendly Deeds.

For Trinity Collage Exam an English man comes to ask questions or listen our presentations. The special day is a special day for a child, the special child chooses a hat to wear. All the children have to say one positive thing. You can write it on a card or just say what you think. The friendly deeds are special copybooks that your can write you positive things or questions.

Then we get the food. Sometimes we eat pasta and rice and sometimes meat, eggs for dessert it can be fruit, ice cream or cakes.
Then all the children leave the dirty trays in a window inside the cafeteria. A man takes all the trays to clean them. Then we go out for break.
The school chooses the food that we eat and the dessert.
Juan Bautista. He brings his lunch from home. He has to warm the food. He can sit where he wants and he can go to the break when he finishes. He doesn't have to wait to his friends. He goes directly to break.
Agustin goes home for lunch and he can eat what he wants. He also plays with the playstation, and watches TV. He is lucky!

Hello my name is Rebecca, I come from Woodchurch primary school. At school play time in the playground. I play on the climbing frame only when it's our turn, and I play football and I play other games. Our uniform is a red woolly jumper, a white soft polo shirt, black and grey trousers and a grey skirt or a red and white check dress for girls. Our rules are good because if there weren't any rules people could get hurt or people could go around school doing nothing and escaping from school. At lunchtime I sit on a table with other people and it's very good because if we didn't have lunchtime people would get very hungry and thirsty.
We learn literacy, numeracy, art, dt, geography, ict, spelling, pshe, history and that's all I can think of. I learn my times tables with my teachers and I am quite good at them Bye…
Hi, I'm Alice.
I'm going to tell you a bit about our school. First is uniform. We wear red jumpers and white polo shirts. In winter we wear grey or black trousers.
In the summer we wear summer dresses. That's for girls. For boys they wear blackish grey trousers and red jumpers with polo shirts.
Second thing Playtime. At playtime we play on a play train, a house, a boat, and a climbing frame. We have 15 mins at morning break and 45mins at lunchtime break. We also have a hopscotch and number snake and noughts and crosses table. So I hope you have enjoyed reading my letter.
My school is called Woodchurch Church of England Primary School, however most of us call it “Woodchurch Primary”. At Woodchurch we all have to wear a uniform, which is grey trousers or skirt, a white T-shirt and a red cardigan to jumper. We have to arrive at 8.45am and start at 8.55am. When we arrive at school at 8.45am we go straight into our classes and settle down.
At 8.55am when we are ready to start our teacher takes our register to see who is at school. After this she call the lunch register where she finds out who is having cooked lunch or packed lunch.
After register one of us takes it down to the secretary and we then start work. The type of work we do is literacy, numeracy, art, science, physical education, religious education, design and technology.
My favourite subjects are art, numeracy and science.
We have in my school 5 teachers and a headmistress. We have a break in the morning and a lunchbreak, and a different class each day can have 10 children play on the climbing frame, as for safety reason we can only have ten children on the frame.
Bye for now.

We also have rules I'm in badger's class so most important rule is always treat other people, as you would like to be treated.
Our rule that we always have to remember is respect the school ground's like it's your home, But around the school we have bits of paper that have the golden rules on them. We have to abide by them at all times. If you don't follow the rules we get sent down to the blue bench and we have to miss some playtime. We also have a brown bench and a buddy bench we go on the brown bench if we are felling sick and on the buddy one if we don't have any one to play with.
