In this Big Plan we explored elements of the Creative Curriculum including a variety of creative activities to engage learners in English, Maths, Geography, History, Science, Art, Music and Religious Education. Once again, our fabulous staff team got fully involved and shared their learning with the whole group and developed strategies to use in the classroom. Feedback from teachers shows how much everyone has learned from this Erasmus project and enjoyed taking part, working collaboratively. We didn’t want the project to end and will definitely take forward new ways of…read more
One of the elements we have discovered has been the land. We asked different questions. One of them was: Where can we find land? Some of the answers were: the beach, the mountain, the school … For this reason we went to walk around the school to see if there was land and what we could find on earth.We took some containers and we took everything we were finding on the land. Then we went back to school and classified it, we wrote some posters and we made a small…read more
One of the group in primary school has worked about all the elements. How did they work? To work the elements with the students we have created a panel with the four elements.

Every year Tarm School has a week where all classes from kindergarten to 6th grade work on the same theme, this year the theme was “Well-being” or “How do you thrive in school/your class”.

It is about 4 children who must endure some tasks to master the 4 elements: earth, wind, water and fire. On Monday for a start…read more
The students of primary school worked the fire last week. We followed the same line of work as with the air. We made a concept map with different questions: How is the fire? Who invented the fire? What can we do with the fire? Where can we find the fire? How can we stop the fire? We answered the questions and then we put in pairs and looked for different ways to stop the fire, places where we could find fire and things we could do with the fire. It…read more
One of the programming that I use in my class is the one of the blow. For this I modify the structure of the class to be able to make a circuit in which the activities are sequenced in a linear way. I have taken advantage of the theme of the elements to integrate it into this programming, since my initial programming included air, water and fire. I just needed to add the land !!! So I work the elements: – Air: It is the main element in this programming….read more
In primary school with shared schooling, we are working on all the elements. Every week we know a new element and together we make a concept map where each one contributes their ideas. Then we do an experiment on the element worked. This week we worked on the air. In the conceptual map we described how it is the air, what causes the air (from tornadoes to energy), objects or things that make air (fan, hair dryer, mouth …) and objects or things that the air can fly (papers, feathers…read more
When we work with elements also we work with songs related with them. We make an special research with the computer and we share with all school this interesting songs every morning!
In secondary school we are working on water. We have decided the name of our project: the traveling water. We work through experiments and it has been a fun activity. We have known the primary colors and also how new colors are created. We have seen how the water goes from one side to another side through paper. Because we liked it a lot, we wanted to share this activity with the whole school and we went to class by class to teach how water traveled.
We experiment with air and we observe different reactions with vinegar and soda in a bottle. We try to work with all the elements. Experiment with air is funny… maybe balloon can explote!
