Hello First Year students

Here are four common musical compositions. Think about which genres, in your opinion, they might belong to. Bear in mind that sometimes a piece of music may belong to various genres.

- A Gregorian chant

- A pop group concert

- A piano concerto

- A football club hymn

We are going to have a look at this activity in tomorrow's class.


With a little help from my math teacher...

Hi guys,

Here you have the pre-exam we did this morning, I hope it helps...Remember that you are allowed to use the table.

Keep on working this afternoon and good luck.

When I was writing the title for this post I remembered a song, I hope you like it.



Greatest Common Factor and Least Common Multiple

Hello everyone,

As we have already studied what GCF and lcm are, I would like you to go over the definition and improve in calculating both, so please, have a look to the following links:

Greatest Common Factor (GCF) is the highest number that divides exactly into two or more numbers.

Read more about GCF
Practice.  More exercises.

Least Common Multiple (lcm) is  the smallest (non-zero) number that is a multiple of two or more numbers.

Seeing as we have just started to study the Renaissance music, I would like you to get a general taste of this era. By exploring some of the key artistic figures of the Renaissance, you will gain a better understanding of the stylistic and philosophical ideals that characterized this period.

Look on the Internet to locate at least one famous work of art by Leonardo da Vinci, Sandro Botticelli and Michelangelo.

Email your search findings to me before Monday, 21st November at 00:00.

Remember, it is essential for you to meet deadlines.

Have fun while diving into the amazing Renaissance artistic works.




Hello! How is it going? As a present for tomorrow´s exam, here you have a model of question. Try to answer it and send me your answers. The solution will appear today at 10 in the evening.

Another present: review the section Population figures from your English book, in case...

Hola! Cómo lo lleváis? Como regalo para el examen de mañana, aquí tenéis un modelo de pregunta. Tratad de responderla y enviadme las respuestas. La solución aparecerá en el blog esta noche a las 10.

Otro regalillo (hoy estoy generosa): repasad el apartado Population figures de vuestro libro de inglés, por si acaso...



Hi boys and girls,

Here you have the summary I promised, with the six shapes you have to study for the exam.

Hello everybody!

Are you studying for the exam on population pyramids? Here you have an exact model of the exam on Wednesday. If you want, you can practice, answer the interpretation questions and send them to me in a comment to correct them, ok?

Examination model

Anyway, remember the website where you can find the population pyramids of every country in the world. As a training for the exam, see as much as possible and try to guess the type.

De todas formas, recordad la página donde podéis encontrar las pirámides de población de cualquier país del mundo. Ved tantas como podáis y tratad de averiguar el tipo al que pertenecen, como entrenamiento para el examen.

As I promised, in order to prepare your exam on population, you can have a look at the next file. There you can find the contents that you have to study for next Thursday.

Preparing the exam

Study hard and good luck!



Sieve of Eratosthenes

The Sieve of Eratosthenes is an ancient method for finding all primes numbers up to a specified number.

It was created by Eratosthenes (275-194 B.C., Greece), an ancient Greek mathematician. Just as a sieve is a strainer for draining spaghetti, Eratosthenes's sieve drains out composite numbers and leaves prime numbers behind. The numbers from 1 to 100 are listed in a table. We will use The Sieve of Eratosthenes to find all primes up to the number 100 by following the directions below.


  1. Cross out 1 since it is not prime.
  2. Circle 2 because it is the smallest prime number. Cross out every multiple of 2.
  3. Circle the next open number, 3. Now cross out every multiple of 3.
  4. Circle the next open number, 5. Now cross out every multiple of 5.
  5. Circle the next open number, 7. Now cross out every multiple of 7.
  6. Continue this process until all numbers in the table have been circled or crossed out.
You have just circled all the prime numbers from 1 to 100!

Questions (to be answered as a comment):

1. How many prime numbers are there from 1 to 100?
2. List all prime numbers from 1 to 100.
3. Which number is the only even prime number?
4. An emirp (prime spelled backwards) is a prime that gives you a different prime when its digits are reversed. For example, 13 and 31 are emirps. List all emirps between 1 and 100.

Enjoy it!


Hi girls and boys,

Here you have a link where you can find the 3D models (also called "nets") for every 3D shape.

If you want to practice associating nets and figures, go to the following site:


Surface area and Volume, part I

Hi all,

these days we have been working in class with surface area and volume of some geometric shapes. I leave you here some links to go over the most important ones:

Platonic solids (tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron, icosahedron)



Cylinder, cones, sphere

Remember that you have to present by the end of this week your work including:

1. Description of your shape

2. Net

3. Surface area and volume

4. Examples in real life

5. Problem

(Deadline: friday, 11th of november)

If you want to practice or get some ideas or pictures, you can find more exercises here:

Surface area of a cube, rectangular prism, pyramids and cones, cylinder, cylinder and prism,

Volume of a cube, rectangular prism, prism and cylinder, triangular prism, cone, pyramid and cone, cylinder, pyramid, sphere

Volume and surface area of sphere

Take care,

Your Halloween cakes

Thank you very much for all the scary (and tasty) cakes you did.

Here you can see some sweet spiders, a terrific graveyard, some tasty pumpkins, a special skull, some funny bats and a cobweb... but there were more wonderful cakes. You have made an excellent work.
