This blog has been designed to provide information about the activities held at the social studies bilingual sections in CPI Tino Grandío (Guntín,Spain). The English language and Social Studies teachers have elaborated most of the resources you can see but our "auxiliares de conversa" also have their own page and posts. Therefore everyone is invited to have a look .

Greetings from Andalucia!

Dear Guntineses,

As I have been "incomunicado" for a good while now, I thought it was time to share what I´ve been up to, and of course a few photos.  I´m currently finishing teaching at a primary school on the island of San Fernando, Cádiz, famous for being the home of the Spanish navy, el Real Teatro de las Cortes (birthplace of the Spanish Constitution of 1812), and Camarón de la Isla, a famous flamenco singer.  I teach social sciences and art to kindergarteners and first graders.  The children are endearing, but it´s a lot of work!  In my free time I have visited some of the amazing towns and natural wonders in Andalucia, of which I am including pictures in this post.  Do you recognize some of the places in these photos?




  1. Hi Sam,
    Thanks for writing to us. We all wish we were south there, enjoying the beach and the monuments. As you know we are not so fond of flamenco!
    We'll probably read your post in class next week and write some more comments.

  12. Hello Sam!
    It may be hard to work with young children. Do you prefer Guntín or Cádiz? We listened to Camarón de la Isla when we were with the students from Cádiz. We miss you a lot and I wish you're having a great time.
    Good Bye!
