Our Trip to Italy!

From April 12th through the 19th we went on a class trip to Gubbio, Italy. The trip was the culmination of our Comenius project that we have been working on all year. We had an amazing time in Gubbio and even got to visit some of the surrounding cities like Perugia and Florence. Above are pictures from some of the interesting things we did during the week. Enjoy!

4D English Class

Welcome to our Comenius Blog

Welcome to the IES Cardenal Lopez de Mendoza Comenius blog. We have been working on our Comenius project for the past 2 years. Our Comenius project is called "Enjoy Your Meals, Be Healthy Be Happy." Students from 4th year of the ESO are participating, and we work together with students from Gubbio, Italy. The overall theme of our project is health. It is a topic which emcompasses many issues ranging from eating habits, physical exercise and nutrition to eating disorders, the influence of the media on body image and the evolution of the concept of beauty.
