Year 3 Rocks!


As part of our Science lessons we have been studying rocks and soils. To bring the subject to life we took a trip to the fascinating caves in San Miguel.
We arrived early in the morning and travelled down the steps which have been cut out of the rock. From the steps, the children could see right across the bay of Puerto San Miguel. We had fun looking out across the sea at the islands of Murada and Ferradura and we held on tight as we made our way down to the mouth of the cave which is approximately 12 metres above sea level.
Our helpful guide told us that the caves are 100,000 years old. We saw impressive stalagmites and stalactites that have formed throughout the years. As we wondered through the caves, we were shown the place where fossilised bones of rodents were found! We watched the water flowing through the water courses and collecting in pools. Lastly, we enjoyed the spectacular light show which illuminates the largest waterfall in the cave.
Not only did we learn about the formation of the rocks inside the cave, but also about the history of its discovery. The cave was found by smugglers and pirates who used it as a secret hideaway to stash away any goods which they wanted to bring illegally onto the island. From inside the cave, we could see the hole which the smugglers used to lift goods up from sea level. We also saw the red and black markings on the cave walls which the pirates used to find their way around the cave.

Last week, 10 staff from Morna gave up their weekend to attend the annual National Association of British Schools in Spain conference in Valencia. As well as including important updates about child protection, safeguarding and educationally related laws, there were also a number of training workshops designed to help teachers improve teaching and learning in schools. These workshops not only benefitted the staff that attended, but the information was also shared with staff throughout our school.
We are always looking to improve at Morna, and we make a major investment in the training and development of our staff each year.
The NABSS conference is one small part of this, but the fact that so many staff were keen to attend, shows their commitment to this process.
Our staff are always looking to do what is best for the students of our school, and this is another example of that.
Have a great weekend.

Last week, Y10 students visited the “Parque Natural de las Salinas” with their Spanish teachers. They learned about the sea turtle species which have come to the island to lay their eggs in the last years. Students did a simulation of the nest translocation protocol that is carried out by environment agents and scientists when a turtle trace is found.
