Summer letter 2018

Estimados padres y alumnos de “Geography” en year 7A, 7B, 8A, 8B, 9A, 9B, 10, 11 y “History” year 7A, 7B y 8A :

Como cada año cuando llegan estas fechas, me gusta comunicarme con vosotros para agradecer vuestro apoyo y trabajo desde casa. Este ha sido otro año intenso, y no sólo en lo académico. Agradezco vuestro reconocimiento y apoyo durante todos estos meses.

Espero disfrutéis de un buen verano y merecido descanso. Como cada año, recomiendo se siga en contacto con actividades relacionadas con la lectura y repaso de conceptos aprendidos durante el año. Algunos estudiantes de “year 7, 8 y 9” han recibido en estos dias un “summer-pack”. En los comentarios de las notas he puesto quien debe hacer el trabajo de verano. Son actividades de repaso para aquellos que han suspendido o han aprobado pero creo que necesitan reforzar la/s asignatura/s de cara al curso que viene. No olvidéis traerlo hecho a la vuelta de vacaciones y entregarlo en la primera semana como “year 8, 9 ó 10”.
Aquí tenéis un enlace con las instrucciones por si han perdido la documentación que he entregado a los alumnos.

Para mis estudiantes de year 10 espero reviséis algo durante estos meses y para los de year 11, espero tengáis buenos resultados en los IGCSE y disfrutéis de un gran verano.

También espero que durante esta pausa veraniega, descansemos y el sol nos recargue a todos de energía para así empezar el nuevo curso con fuerza y energía renovada.

Un abrazo y gracias una vez más.

Félix Legaz

Dear parents and students of "Geography" in year 7A, 7B, 8A, 8B, 9A, 9B, 10, 11 and "History" year 7A, 7B & 8A,

This year and like in previous ones, I want to communicate with you to thank you for the support and help provided from home. It has been another long hard year in many ways, not just academically. As usual, I really appreciate your support and understanding during all these months.

I hope you enjoy a great summer and deserved rest. I recommend you follow up with reading-related activities and review of concepts learned during the year. Some students in "year 7, 8 and 9" have received a "summer-pack" already, there is a reminder on the reports about the students that must do it. They are summer activities for those who have failed or they are at the edge and I think they need to strengthen their knowledge in my subject/s for next year. Please, do not forget to bring it done in September and hand it in the first week you are back to school again, as year 8, 9 or 10. There is a link here, just in case the students have lost the hand out with all the information.

For my year 10s do not forget to revise a little bit during the summer break and for my year 11 students, I just hope you have a great summer and nice IGCSE results as well.

I also hope that this summer break will bring us lots of sun and rest, so we will be back to work with renewed strength and energy.

Regards and thank you very much one more time.

World Environment Day 2018 (Beat plastic pollution)

World Environment Day is the biggest annual event for positive environmental action and takes place every 5 June. This year’s host country India has chosen the theme "beat plastic pollution" and will be at the centre of celebrations around the planet.
World Environment Day is a day for everyone, everywhere. Since it began in 1972, global citizens have organized many thousands of events, from neighbourhood clean-ups, to action against wildlife crime, to replanting forests.
As I said,the theme for World Environment Day 2018 is Beat Plastic Pollution. For more information on plastic pollution, check out the #BeatPollution page on marine pollution. 
Remember.... every little helps! We all could do something to improve our planet!
