Lord of the flies


This year we are preparing our new play called “The Lord of the flies”. It’s a play based on a novel written by William Golding. We’re adapting this play for our students.

I’ve found a video in youtube with the review of the novel. Hope you find it interesting. Enjoy it!

Book day!!


World Book Day is a yearly event on 23 April, to promote reading. This “Day” was celebrated for the first time on 23 April 1995.

It is celebrated on this date because is the anniversary of the birth and death of William Shakespeare, the death of Miguel de Cervantes, Garcilaso de la Vega (El Inca) among any other authors.

At San Cristobal school we celebrated this day with a variety of activities. My 4th grade students wrote stories inspirated in some Edward Hopper paintings.
