One of the most interesting aspects of bilingualism is using projects to extend and integrate comprehensive learning as well as working as a team, trying to achieve common goals. Integrated projects help us motivate our students and find new ways to practise the foreign language in the same direction. The concept of group project work helps teachers not only facilitate learning but also improve social and communication skills. The Integrated Project Approach takes the concept a step forward and topics are approached in a holistic way enabling crosscurricular connectivity, going from cultural awareness to scientific, literary or artistic implementation, through a vehicular language, which in our case is English.

As CLIL is an approach that integrates language learning with content teaching of different subjects, its pedagogical intervention makes learning more interesting and, therefore, 

Every year, we try to choose some different topics we find appropriate for our students, focusing on opening new doors to their knowledge and curiosity. This school year, we have been working on Recycling (ESO1), The Alhambra (ESO2), Healthy food and sport (ESO3) and Great women in the 20th century (ESO4). 


ESO1. Recycling.

It is thought that recycling is one of the most important gestures to save our planet. In order to be successful, we have to consider many different things we can do every single day:

-Paper can be turned into art.

-Beauty is not only in brand new objects, so that reusing is an important factor to get beautiful and useful things.

-Music can lead us to understand important information about nature and how it can be spoilt.

-Using plastic can be avoided.

-Taking a shower is better than having a bath.


Final activity:

Huge wall poster with origami figures forming the word HOPE, which is what we must apply to the future of the planet.


Subjects involved:

History, Maths, Biology, Arts, PE, Music, Spanish, French and English. 



ESO2. The Alhambra.

Visiting this amazing historical spot is not only going back in time to learn the History of different peoples, but the originality of using different techniques to make of this fortress a magnificent and unique masterpiece: wall and floor tiles, colours, geometry, mosaic tiles made and laid by hand, tessellation by first making many copies of the tile, using successive rotations to obtain truncated and original figures, building materials, marquetry and wood inlay, ceiling reflections in the water and water used as a reflection of paradise, poetry on the walls, music played in the Middle Ages and some other different periods, acoustics, gardening and many other different features of the civilization who made possible the recreation of heaven on earth.


Final activity: trip to the Alhambra in order tosee the monument from a different and new point of view when looking at it through newly learned information and approaches. 


Subjects involved:

History, Maths, Physics and Chemistry, PE, Music, Technology, Spanish, French and English. 



ESO3. Healthy Food and Sport.

Proportions and percentages, chemical reactions, nutrients and energy intake, the ability to reduce or get the available energy from the diet,  the importance of having a good breakfast, body image, Mediterranean diet, Harvard dish, rice and tuna being exploited by big multinational companies are some of the topics we have studied and learned.

ESO4. Great Women in the 20th Century.

There have been great women not only in History but nowadays in different fields of everyday life: Science, Sport, Arts and all the different aspects of life. The main goal is to help our students understand that men are not the only qualified human beings that achieve success. Women and men have always been together to make the world more interesting and functional and we must accept that a better gender balance across studies and occupations could contribute to meeting future skills.   Although women haven’t been allowed to take part in certain fields all through History, we must  reveal the essential role they have played in our society in order to place them in the real position they deserve in our society.


Final activity: big world map to be placed on the school wall with the images, names, origin and field in which different women have succeeded. A QR code which contains information about their lives has been added.


Subjects involved:

History, Maths, PE, Latin, Spanish, French and English.
