We are two 5th and two 6th grade classes of English language learners. Our school is located in Santa Margarida de Montbui in the northern area of Barcelona, approximately 60 Km from the big city.
Barcelona is Catalonia’s capital and it’s a city brimming with art, culture and traditions. You can find many works designed by Antoni Gaudi in Barcelona, such as the Sagrada Familia or Park Güell, being the most representative of his legacy.
However, if you step off the beaten track and venture out of the city, you will find Montserrat, a mountain which is an exponent of surreal art that we can see just by looking out our window, or La Tossa de Montbui, a Romanesque church that stands alongside the ruins of an ancient castle.
Our gastronomy is also worth mentioning as it brings together a delicious variety of typical Catalan flavours sourced from the nearby countryside, mountains and sea. Human castles, the “sardana” dance, the “running fire” or “Patufet” are some of our most popular traditions.
This is our first time participating in GRA. and we are extremely delighted to be working with classrooms from around the world. We are looking forward to developing our relationships across the globe and learning a lot.
