  • Celtic people lived in Ireland, Britain and Nother of France.
  • The Celts had a tradition of remembering those who had died and keeping the evil spirits peaceful.
  • They did this every year on 31st October and it was called Samhain (Summer's End).
  • But their practices were opposed to the Christian way.
  • Nearly seven hundred years after Christ, the Head of the Catholic Church moved an important Christian day the All Saint's Day (it's a Christian festival in honour of all the saint in heaven) to 1st November.
  • He thought everyone would forget about Samhain
  • Since November 1st was the day of celebrating the Holy Spirits, the evening before that became the Holy Evening or All Hallow Even. Hallow is the old word for Holy and Even is the old word for Evening.
  • Soon All Hallow Even became Halloween!
  • People dressed up as spirits and ghosts became a part of the All Saint's Day celebration, because people who celebrated Samhain believed that wearing scary costumes would scared away the evil spirits and keep them away.
  • What about Jack-o'-latern? The pumpkin you love to carve every Halloween people keep it outside their homes to ward off evil spirits.
  • In the Middle Ages children and poor people would dressing up in the spirits costumes and go around door-to-door during Holy Evening, they received food or money in exchange for songs and prayers but now children tell jokes, sing songs or perform in some other way in exchange for a treat.

Pancake Day photos

Body system poster

Last week pupils from 4th grade finished the second unit at Science with a lapbook like a test and they did a body systems poster in their team.

Pancake Recipe


  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 4 tbsp butter for greasing the pan

  1. In a bowl, place the milk, lemon juice and sugar together and whisk. Leave to stand for 5 minutes. The milk will take on a curdled appearance but that's fine.
  2. In a bowl, sift the flour and bicarbonate soda and whisk in the curdled milk mixture.
  3. Whisk in the egg and cooled, melted butter until well combined.
  4. Heat a non-stick pan over a medium heat and place a knob of butter into the warmed pan. Roll it around to grease the surface and cook half cup measures of the batter until bubbles appear. Flip and cook to golden and serve.

Pancake Day

Happy Pancake Day 2017! What is the meaning behind it and why do we eat pancakes to celebrate Shrove Tuesday?

Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday is a special day celebrated in many countries around the world. It is celebrated in English-speaking countries like the UK, Ireland, Australia and Canada. In some countries, like France and the USA, it is called 'Mardi Gras' or 'Fat Tuesday'. In other countries, like Spain, Italy or Brazil, Shrove Tuesday is at the end of Carnival. On this day many people eat pancakes, a thin, flat cake made in a pan.
Pancake Day is always on a Tuesday in February or March. It is the day before Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent. Lent is a period of 40 days before Easter when people often give up or stop eating things that are bad for them like chocolate or fast food. At the end of Lent is Easter. Easter takes place on a different date each year because it depends on the moon. Easter Sunday is the first Sunday after the first full moon of spring. Traditionally, during Lent, people didn’t eat rich foods like butter and eggs, so they made pancakes from these ingredients on Shrove Tuesday.
Another tradition on Pancake Day in the UK is pancake racing. People run in a race with a pancake in a pan. As they run, they have to toss the pancake (throw the pancake in the air and catch it in the pan) several times. In some pancake races people dress up in fancy dress costumes. The most famous pancake race takes place in a town called Olney, in the middle of England. People say that Olney has been celebrating pancake races since 1445!

Groundhog Day

Groundhog Day

Groundhog Day is a US "holiday" (although nobody gets a day off!) which takes its tradition from the German Candlemas day. On 2nd February, Germans would watch the badger emerge from its sett to see whether the animal cast a shadow on the ground, which it would only do if it was a sunny day. If it did, the tradition went that there would be another six weeks of wintry weather. If it didn't - in other words if the weather was cloudy that day), then Spring had arrived early.

Having arrived in America, the tradition was carried on, using a groundhog (a small animal from the squirrel family, also known as a woodchuck) instead of a badger.

  • The first groundhog was eaten after his prediction.  The tradition began with a sign from the rodent followed by a feast which included menu items containing groundhog.  Once Groundhog Day became famous, the items containing the animal were removed from the feast.
  • Punxsutawney Phil does not live in his own crafted burrow as do other groundhogs.  He lives in a climate-controlled, man-made burrow.
  • While Phil is the most well known groundhog, there are others across the nation that are brought out for their weather predictions.
  • Punxsutawney Phil’s accuracy is only 30-40% which doesn’t make him very credible.  This superstition is more of a morale booster for those that are enduring a harsh winter.
  • While it is common for groundhogs to come out of their burrows this time of year, it really has nothing to do with predicting the weather.  This is their mating season, so the males will come out of their holes, find the females, and then both go back underground.
In reality, no groundhog has the ability to predict the weather.  It’s all a fun tradition started over 120 years ago, but the little fella can sometimes shed some hope that the extreme winter weather will soon be moving out making way for warm, sunny days.  Let’s all hope that Phil gives us a good (and accurate) prediction of an early spring this year!

Día de la Paz, El Guernica

Material para trabajar en clase el Día de la Paz, CEIP Ntra. Sra. de Guadalupe de Miajadas. Dirigido al alumnado de3er ciclo de Educación Primaria.

Un poco de Historia

El Guernica es el cuadro más famoso de Picasso. Se ha convertido en un símbolo, en un grito contra la barbarie y el horror de las guerras. Ha tenido y tiene diversas interpretaciones.
El pabellón de España de la Exposición Universal de París de 1937 se convierte en un grito de auxilio del gobierno de España de la II  ante el avance de los militares golpistas, la barbarie de la Guerra Civil y la pasividad de las democracias europeas. Para ello se movilizaron los nombres más reconocibles de la cultura española de la época, entre los que se encontraban Pablo Picasso, Miró (el mural El Segador, obra desaparecida) o Julio González (La Montserrat). El gobierno encarga al pintor, afincado en Francia, un cuadro de grandes dimensiones para que presida el pabellón español de la Exposición Universal de París de 1937.
El Guernica tiene un fuerte valor histórico y de denuncia; se pinta en plena Guerra Civil.  Pocos días antes de iniciar el cuadro, la aviación alemana que apoyaba a Franco bombardeó el pueblo de Guernica (Vizcaya). Este grave hecho afectó enormemente a Picasso y le indujo a titular así el cuadro.
Debido al estallido de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, el artista decidió que la pintura quedara bajo la custodia del Museum of Modern Art de Nueva York hasta que finalizara el conflicto bélico. En 1958 Picasso renovó el préstamo del cuadro al MOMA por tiempo indefinido, hasta que se restablecieran las libertades democráticas en España, regresando la obra finalmente a nuestro país en el año 1981. Desde 1992 el lienzo está colgado en una de las salas del Museo Reina Sofía de Madrid. Cumpliendo con el deseo del artista, la obra  vino a España una vez instaurada la democracia.

Datos técnicos y artísticos

Picasso antes de iniciar el cuadro hizo numerosos bocetos preparatorios sin alusiones al bombardeo. Son un alegato contra la barbarie de las guerras.

El lienzo tiene unas dimensiones considerables (3,50 x 7,80). Lo pinta con la técnica del  óleo en blanco, negro y variaciones de grises, como símbolo de luto, para acentuar el dramatismo.
Es de estilo cubista (estilo que descompone las imágenes reales y las representa en un mismo plano de forma geométrica), expresionista y simbólico. La composición se organiza en triángulos, destacando el central. Y en dos grupos de figuras representadas: seres humanos (soldado herido, varias mujeres y niño muerto) y animales (toro, caballo y paloma). La línea está claramente definida.

Learn Human Body - Cardiovascular System

The circulatory system consists of the heart, blood vessels and blood. It moves blood through the heart and around the body. Blood gives our cells the oxygen and nutrients they need. Blood also collects waste products, such as carbon dioxide, and takes them to the parts of the body which expel them.

Urinary System

Our excretory system excretes waste from our body. Two organs called kidneys clean waste from blood. The waste combines with water to make urine. Urine travels down two tubes called ureters and collects in a bag called the bladder. When the bladder is full, the urine leaves the body through the urethra.
Our body also eliminates waste through the skin. This waste is in the form of a liquid called sweat.
