Escoltem música clàssica

La setmana passada vam rebre la visita de la Maria Àngels amb la qual vam conèixer i descobrir autors reconeguts del món de la música clàssica i les seves obres més famoses com per exemple, Beethoven, Wagner, Frédéric Chopin, Mozart… Ella ens va explicar que podíem escoltar en cada obra i per què.

Ens va encantar la seva visita! Thanks a lot!

It was really interesting!!!

Maria Dolors Romeu i Font fa 70 anys!

Mirant enrere, i fent un vol pel Col·legi Claver, se m’omple el cor de records d’ahir, de tota una vida dedicada a l’ensenyament.

El Pare Ribalta ha estat per a mi tot un exemple, un referent a seguir. En tot moment, orgullosa d’aquesta fotografia al seu costat

“Pare Ribalta, vostè 100 i jo 70”.

Ell em fa un somriure, una mirada de respecte i d’aprovament. I jo li recordo,

“Gràcies Pare Ribalta, vostè és per a mi, el reflexe viu de tants valors en el món de l’ensenyança que mai oblidaré. De tants somnis encara per fer. Com vostè, de vegades, agafo un llapis i un paper i l’omplo d’idees, de paraules, que surten de pressa del meu cor. Perquè vagi on vagi, en el meu equipatge, hi estan presents aquells primers anys i tots els companys al Col·legi Claver, el meu col·legi primer. I el temps, que mai s’atura, amic que mai enganya, m’acompanya, i em permet gaudir dels records d’ahir, així com de l’amor del meu fill avui.

Cada dia al despertar, li estic agraïda a la vida – cal pensar més enllà? Jo crec que és el dia a dia de les nostres vides, el que mai hem de deixar de mimar.

Felicitats Maria Dolors! – Em dic jo mateixa, avui fas 70 anys! Doncs, a caminar!

Saint Valentine’s Day

Sant Valentí arriba a la nostra escola… amb un munt d’activitats! Primer de tot, vam crear els nostres propis cors tot ajudant-nos d’un molde en forma de cor. Seguidament, vam realitzar l’activitat…my heart is your heart, a partir de la qual vam reglar-nos un cor tot fent-nos petons i abraçades. Finalment, vam experimentar, descobrir i investigar, a partir del tacte de la pintura, el color RED!!!

We had a very lovely and nice week!

Newsletter in English

Hello Families,

With January about to finish, we would like to give a summary of the activities that we will carry out this quarter and that we all agreed to at the last teachers’ meeting.  This will all be very beautiful and suitable for our children.

1- Celebration of St.Valenti  – VALENTINE’S DAY

We will have a few mornings in class during which we will exchange ideas to take advantage of this celebration and help children channel their emotions by giving each other a hug.

They often have “tantrums” that are difficult to understand and so with the excuse of this day we will try to make sure that frustration and intolerance disappear from the classroom!

2-Carnival and costumes

This year the choice is to make an ‘Indian tribe’ that is to say, to make a costume in class that involves both group and individual work. We need your help to investigate who the native American Indians were and we will ask you to find out a few things on the internet.

Making and painting the costume will involve the use of ART and MUSIC, because we will play a piece of music with percussion, as well as PSYCHOMOTRICITY, with dancing and walking along the street; and finally the EMOTIONS: we will go out to share our work with people in the street, as well as with all of you.

3-The Inventors

We have voted in class on the sheets of inventors produced by the Institute of Human Potential in Philadelphia, and it seems that Alexander Graham Bell has been chosen, perhaps because of his grandfather’s appearance: white hair and white beard (comment from a mother which we think is exactly right!). So our project will be to explain to the children interesting things about using the phone. On the” Table of Interest’ we have put out some toys related to this in order to start awakening the children’s curiosity, initially as a game.

We will give details of how to carry out this project, which without doubt will last us until the beginning of Easter.

4-Not forgetting the 19th  of March, the special celebration of Father’s Day, as well as Easter (21st of April).

Like every year, the celebrations will include the English PETER RABBIT EASTER EGG HUNT  which means looking for the chocolate eggs hidden in the patio, with a basket so that we can share them all in class. We will also make a typical  Easter cake according to Catalan tradition ‘LA MONA’ that we will also share in the Iemer dining room.

5-On February 12 Mª Àngels Molpeceres, an expert on Wagner, will come to give a demonstration of his music, interacting with the children.

Also for your information, on January 29 there will be a commentary on the opera ‘The Exotics’ of Wagner at the ARMATS DE Lleida at 8:00 p.m., at its headquarters at Carrer Enric Granados n19 Altell.

On February 2 at the Ateneu de Ponent, Pau Claris, Josep Mallol  and Mª Àngels Molpeceres will hold  a conference on Wagner’s” Die Meistersinger,” which you can attend if you are interested.

THE INTEREST TABLE  IN THE SCHOOL HALL WILL BE A REMINDER OF ALL WE WILL BE DOING .

All this, the Table of Interest and working with the children, greatly encourages their creativity, at the same time as awakening their curiosity and their sensitivity to everything they experience. They discover a world parallel to that of the adult. All our efforts are focussed on each child finding their own pace and being able to develop and acquire greater self-esteem, which we lack so much in society  today.

We have adapted a classroom with Pikler material, which we will all enjoy, great and small. In due course, we will give you detailed information about these activities.

Thanks to the parents of P2 for your collaboration on the book “Travellers’ adventure” – those of P1 will take part next year!

Together we all make a great team!!  You are a great family that gives us great strength every day with your ‘good morning’ and your smile.

We constantly experience great kindness, support and gratitude for what we do as teachers … and for your children, who are already a little bit ours, we have to say !

We always receive eagerness from them, and every day we give them our best, as well as education and love.

Thank you and an affectionate hug,

MªDolors Romeu and the Iemer team
