I am an English teacher. I have been teaching since 1992. I have taught from Preschool up to Secondary. Right now I teach in one of the biggest schools in Sintra, 8th Graders (13-14 years old). I think being a Language teacher is wonderful. We do have a curriculum but I feel that everything fits in it. It is just the way you look at it. I could live without books in my class (but not in my life, but that is another topic). For me the most important thing is getting those kids to speak

Projects 2020

Week 1

We come from a beautiful place in Portugal, Sintra, a charming city. Our school is in the parish of Mem Martins.  

Our class belongs to a team of 3 classes.We have the same teachers and they have decided to work together in this project. Each subject contributes to our knowledge on the topic Climate Change. 

Throught out the weeks we will learn more and more. At the end we will show the whole school what we have learnt and raise others' awareness. We will be  contacting the politicians of Sintra. Since we have enjoyed so much we will continue to work on this theme until the end of the semester.

We have researched, discussed and learnt.

We decided to build one video with some of the causes we learnt. Since we can not use computers due to the Pandemic we decided to draw. At the end we gathered all the drawings together in a video.

We studied the causes of Climate Change in different subjects: English, French, Portuguese, Maths, Sciences, Citizenship and Geography. At the end of the project we will show you the process. 

We are learning a lot!!

We are collecting our work here.



We continued to work on the Climate Change topic. We read news, watched videos and reflected on the consequences of climate change.

We are collecting Cartoons on Climate Change. Some of us decided to draw their own cartoons.
