Poetry Day – Zuera, Spain

On 21st March we celebrated the Poetry Day in our school. During this year, year 4 students have been learning about Gloria Fuertes, a great Spanish poet and author of children’s literature. She was born in Madrid in 1917 and was linked to the first Spanish literary movement after the Civil War, 50’s Generation or postism. In her work, she defended equality between men and women, pacifism and the fight for the environment.

Year 4 children went to Zuera library and enjoy a storyteller reciting poems of Gloria Fuertes. Then, Primary and Secondary students met togegher to share poetry. Some students recite their favourite poems, others read their own creations and the school choir sang several poems as well. We love poetry!

Design our logo!

Our first activity was addressed to year 3 and 4. They had to design the logo for the LORATORY project. First, we watched the short film “THE FANTASTIC FLYING BOOKS OF MR. MORRIS LESSMORE”. Then, we explained the project LORATORY and we looked for the countries we are working with in a map.


We investigated about the flags and the cities were the schools are located. And children did a logo using cooperative working techniques.
We had such a great time!
Next week we will decide the logos we like most to show them in our ERASMUS + display.
