    In the town of Íllora, where we live and study, where we enjoy and enhance ourselves, students and teachers of Diego de Siloé school, on the 30th of January 2014, celebrate the day of peace and non-violence. Our desire is to enrich our hearts and minds in a respectful manner that encourages co-existence without aggression.

    In order to stop this repetition of aggression and violence in our generation and the generations to come, a change must be made in our daily interactions with the people in our own community; our cities, our schools and our families.

   ON THIS DAY OF PEACE AND NON-VIOLENCE, WE DECLARE THAT as the youth of this society it is our responsibility to:
  • Acknowledge the separation of cultures but not practice discrimination towards them.
  • Make an active effort to help the less fortunate and share the community´s resources with all its members.
  • Overcome sexism and racism, and view every person with respect and dignity.
  • Reach the day where we extinguish the negativity in our hearts and never again know fighting or threats in our schools.
  • Dream of the day where harmony flourishes in everything.

Top Tales 1 ESO A, June 2013

Hi, friends. here are some of our newspaper reports, we hope you can understand our mistakes. The articles dont appear in the order that they are supposed to be in the original paper. Thats because we haven´t learnt how to do it yet. We hope that next year we will do it better.

 Have a great summer, greetings from 3ºA/B bilingual!


6 (Mostly False) Food Myths Revealed
These “facts” about food range from slightly off to downright nutty. Discover the truth about what’s on your plate

Myth 1: French fries give you zits

The tidbit of truth: Greasy fingers makes acne worse
Excess oil in your skin causes acne, but oily foods don’t contribute to the problem—that is, unless you’re a messy eater. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), when some vegetable oils get on the skin, they could make existing acne worse—so wipe your mouth if you miss, and keep greasy fingers off your face. What about chocolate? Scientists may need to look at this one a little more closely. Though experts agree specific foods don’t cause acne, very preliminary research presented at the AAD conference this year found that eating pure chocolate may exacerbate acne in people prone to pimples.
Myth 2: White flour is bleached with dangerous chemicals

The tidbit of truth: White flour is bleached, but the chemicals are safe

Flour whitens naturally on its own as yellow compounds called xantophylls react with oxygen in the air; this takes several weeks. To speed the process, manufacturers bleach flour, turning it white from its natural straw color, with safe, FDA-regulated chemicals (some of the same ones used to sanitize veggies).

Myth 3: Carrots make you see better

The nugget of truth: Carrots contain nutrients that help keep eyes healthy

They are rich in vitamin A, and vitamin A is absolutely important for eye health—but there’s nothing magical in this orange veggie. Spinach, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin are also good sources. So yes, carrots
are good for your vision, but no, they won’t improve it.

Myth 4: Bread Make You Fat
Contrary to popular belief, bread does not make you fat.

In fact, there isn’t any one food that makes you fat. Weight gain occurs when you eat more calories than you burn. bread, like any food, contains calories, so if you eat too much of it, of course you will put on weight. To give you an idea, 100 grams of bread provides 240 calories, most of which come from carbohydrates, but there are other foods that give you far more calories with the same number of grams (eg, rice: 354 cal,  corn flakes 350 cal, biscuit 456cal, chocolate croissant 469 cal, “Danish” cookies 397 cal, cheese cake 414 cal...). Eating bread is healthy and it doesn’t fatten you as much as people say it does, as long as you do it right.

Myth 5: Eating after dark packs on pounds

The nugget of truth: People are more prone to overeat at night

Consuming too many calories is what makes you gain weight—it doesn’t really matter what time of day you do it. That said, more people tend to overindulge at night out of boredom or other emotions instead of hunger—calories that are then stored as fat. Also, those who eat late-night often wake up without an appetite and skip breakfast, the meal that has been shown to control calorie intake throughout the day. To help curb nighttime noshing: Brush your teeth after your last meal (it sends a powerful message that eating time is over); “close” the kitchen 2 hours before bedtime; and keep snacks out of sight.

Myth 6: Sugar causes diabetes
The nugget of truth: Sugar contributes to weight gain, which ups your risk

It doesn’t lead to diabetes the same way cigarettes cause cancer, but research shows that sugar may play a role. We know

being overweight increases your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, and consuming too much sugar makes you put on pounds. Some science, though, has linked excess sugar intake to increased risk regardless of weight—one study found women nearly doubled their diabetes risk when they increased the number of sugar-added drinks from 1 or fewer a week to 1 or more per day over a 4-year period. To be safe, watch your weight; eat lots of high-fiber foods (which keep blood sugar steady); and opt for water or tea over sugary soft drinks whenever possible.
We did an experiment in Math class. It consisted on finding out how many wubber bands were necessary to form a rope and throw a Barbie so that it could bungee jump safely without cracking her head on the floor. Better safe than sorry!
To do this experiment we needed:
-      A Barbie doll
-      A few elastic rubber bands
-      A measuring tape.

We tied one of the rubber bands to the Barbie's ankles and measured its height. Later we added one rubber band and measured the distance of the jump several times so that our information was more accurate.

Then we added more rubber bands and repeated the process. We also measured the stair well to be 4.20 meters.
With all the data we calculated an equation that we used to find out how many rubber bands we needed.

The best one was one in which the Barbie's hair touched the floor (our teacher said that he would not choose that one because it was too risky). Our group wasn't the best but we tried and it was really fun!!!


It hasn't been the canter to the quarter-finals that many expected. Barca won the group despite a shock loss at celticand another defeat in Milan in the last 16 looked as if it would be fatal. The 4-0 win over the Italians at the Camp Nou was thrilling, but offered evidence of the excellence and the flaws of Tito Vilanova's side in equal measure.
Malaga became the third Spanish team to reach this year's Champions League quarterfinals by beating 10-man Porto 2-0 on Wednesday to overturn a first-leg deficit.
Porto won 1-0 at home last month but Malaga's 20-year-old forward Fco “Isco” Alarcon evelled the series in the 43rd minute by scoring with a high, curling shot that beat goalkeeper Helton and went into the far top corner.
Keep chewing malaguismo indignation, which grows exponentially as the hours pass, are repetitions of games and get to know the statements of those who govern in the UEFA. The Gianni Infantino, general secretary contiental, are exaggerated cynicism. Plus, when Malaga clamorous cries for an error.
We will have a very exciting derby between two German teams and two Hispanics.
Borussia and Bayern pass to the final to be held in Wembley.

Once María José Rienda has come to school, the first thing she did was to give a press conference with the students responsible for the school magazine "Voice of íllora". Subsequently she passed by each of the classes in the center, and has responded to the questions students have been doing, signing autographs and making photos with children.
Later, about 11:30 ,the Street was opened by María José Rienda, located between the Primary school and the Secondary school, with the presence of the Mayor of íllora, Francisco Domene, the Councillor of Education, Dolores Moreno, and the Director of the Center, Olga Martinez. The ceremony was attended by the students of the school,clothing the skier in this very exciting time for her.
The street María José Rienda is the end result of a work project that began on March 8 of last year, in which students of different courses of the College proposed different names for famous women to name one of the streets of people.
Amongother names were proposed Marie Curie, Anne Frank, Pepita Jimenez (village teacher) and Maria Jose,known as Rienda. Following a referendum in which all students participated, the street was the aforementioned chosen. Finally took delivery of the minutes of the vote of the City Council representatives who have made possible the name of this street. It has certainly been a very exciting day for the entire educational community center, especially for children, because one of their dreams came true: that María José Rienda does name one of the streets of their village and meet its protagonist.

The students say it was a great experience and would love to do it again.
Recently their French correspondents visited them in Spain. While they were here they went to the Alhambra in Granada, the Albaycin, Local shops, the beach.. and each one did different thing with their families out of school hours.

Since we arrived at IES Diego De Siloé, We've been in the bilingual project. In the first year we found it difficult, considering that the change from school to IES is already difficult, but it's like all things, if you put what you learn. Luckily for us, we have with us Eliza, a British student who moved to Spain a few years ago, and she helps us when she can. This year we went to an exchange with students from France ( Thônes) accompanied by Irene ( French) and Inma ( History) and we have had a hand whenever we needed it. The English, though not enough, helped us a lot to communicate in France.
