Technology Learning Databases In these last weeks in Technology lessons we've been learning about how to create and manage a database. A database is an organized collection of data. Data are organized by software into registers and fields. Database applications are widely used in bank accounts, hotel bookings, library management or inventories and invoicing. They can be used also for personal purposes as collections or contact addresses. In our case we made some different types of databases for collections of Egyptian stuff, CD and DVD collections, books, coins or footballers. First, we've put the data in tables and then we've done forms and queries. Then our teacher taught us how to introduce pictures in a field the form and edit it. Databases are part of the ICT curriculum of the Technology subject in 3rd of ESO. It was an entertaining activity and very easy to do. We can change the colour of the background in the forms and introduce a picture for all the form and the position of the different fields.

http://blog.educastur.es/conchiolea/2016/01/20/remember-rememberthe-5th-of-november/ Festival Internacional de Cine de Gijón (November 25th 2015) Our 4th ESO, 1st and 2nd Bachillerato students have recently been to Teatro de la Laboral in Gijón, where they had the opportunity to watch one of the films that took part in this year‟s Festival de Cine de Gijón. As usual it was the young audience members attending the screenings who decided with their votes the films which finally won the two awards in this section. Eleven films coming from Germany, France, Denmark, Italy, Austria, Canada and the USA took part in the XVIII edition of Enfants Terribles. They‟re all releases in our country. A wide range of films were shown in this section dealing with topics such as exploring the teenage world, death, race diversity, the influence of drugs in behaviour, sex. All these films were screened in their original version with Spanish subtitling. Among the titles shown in this 53rd edition of Enfants Terribles, our IES El Batán students chose to see All the Wilderness. Filled with well known faces, such as those from Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road), Isabelle Fuhrman (The Hunger Games) or veteran Danny DeVito, All the Wilderness is a drama and Michael Johnson’s debut in direction, showing the emotional and voluntary isolation of a teenager and the discovery of an alien world. Here’s the official trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JW1ARPXJB4

Physical Education THE SOLIDARITY RACE This race is for the children in Burkina Faso, because they are poor. Burkina Faso is in Africa. The race intention was to collect money for the people in Burkina Faso, because we want to show our solidarity. The charity was Save The Children, they were working a lot of time to prepare this race with us, IES El Batán. Then after the race, a teacher of zumba comes to the gym and we danced zumba. To enter in the gym you have to give a donation, obviously the money was for the people in Burkina Faso. This solidarity race was last December 20th 2015, in the Hermanos Antuña football stadium. The Caudal Deportivo of Mieres plays there. The lesson of zumba took place in the gym of our high school. THE AIM The aim of this race was to get the most amount of money to give the money for people in Burkina Faso. They are too poor and we want to make them live better.

MY PERSONAL OPINION I think that the people in Burkina Faso are too poor but it is not the only country that is poor, although I think it is good to give money to these people. Enol Rodríguez Hevia 1º ESO bilingüe

We would like to thank Abigail for her excellent work and dedication throughout the year. Abigail has several qualities, but her main strength is her ability to relate and work with both students and teachers of our Bilingual Program. She has been very helpful in our classes and taught our students different aspects of Filipino culture and customs that they will always remember. Thank you, Abi ! Great job! The Bilingual Section of IES El Batán organised an exchange of Language Assistants throughout the year with other schools in our area ( IES Bernaldo de Quirós, IES Sánchez Lastra and CP Liceo Mierense) which has been very beneficial for our bilingual students by giving them the opportunity to listen to native speakers from four different English speaking countries: the USA, Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines. The assistants have given very interesting talks and interacted with our students, who were able to appreciate their different accents and learn about different cultural aspects of their home countries, thus helping to spread our bilingual program within the educational community. Here are some photos and comments of the language assistants who took part in the exchange:
