Year 5 in Dalt-Vila and the Necropolis de Puig des Molins


On Tuesday 11th October, Year 5 went on a school trip to Ibiza town in order to visit two of the most important historical and cultural spots on the island: Dalt Vila and the Necrópolis de Puig des Molins.

The visit started at Portal Nou, one of the five gates into the old town, from where we walked up to Sant Jaume’s bastion. The children learned about the different construction periods of the walls around Dalt Vila, as well as how antique weapons were used to defend those walls.

Back at Parque Reina Sofía and after having a little rest and a snack, we visited the Necrópolis de Puig des Molins, founded in the Vll century BC by the Phoenicians and which nowadays is considered the most important necropolis in the Western Mediterranean; the studies on those archaeological excavations are key to understand the Punic – Phoenician culture all over the world. The children visited the excavations area as well as the museum, where they could admire plenty of Punic, Phoenician and Roman objects found in Ibiza.

It was a very pleasant day in which the Year 5 children learned about the origin of the human settlement on this beautiful island where we live; they could get in touch with the Spanish language and enjoy a sunny day together with their classmates and teachers in Ibiza town.

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.
