If you want to watch the school video “Be Water” starred  by Gaztelueta 1st secondary students, you just have to click on the link below.

It contains all the students’ sketches, their bloppers & outtakes and the visit to the Consorcio de Aguas de Bilbao.

This video is a part of the “Be Water Project” together with the “Be Water Photo Contest”  and the “Water Exhibition” which was held at Gaztelueta.

You will hear about the latter ones very soon!!




1st Year Egyptian god/godess

26 05 2014

Imagine you have travelled in time with your laptop to the Ancient Egyptian civilization. This time you are lucky because you are part of the privileged estate. You are a scribe!!

The Pharaoh wants you to draw and colour an Egyptian god/goddess on a papyrus, or at least similar, with the god’s name and what he is god of written in Hieroglyphics and in English as well.

I guess the Pharaoh is learning English somehow or other….

Download the following document which will help you to choose, if you wish you can also surf on the net and choose another.

This website can help you to translate.


Here you’ve got the instructions to make a papyrus at home.
