Next we add the tomato and when they are half-fried we add the spicies: the black pepper,  the chopped garlic and the parsley that we have prviously prepared.
Add a spoonful of flour to thicken the sauce and immediately after add the fish broth.
When it begins to boil we add the eels and we will cook them for about 15 minutes.

How to make it:
Pour the liquids (water and olive oil)  in a bowl and add the salt and yeast.
Mix it well. Gradually add the flour and form a dough.
Knead the dough until the ingredients are well combined (for about 10 minutes).
Cover the dough with a cotton cloth and let the dough settle for about 30 minutes.
While the dough is settling...
Chop the peppers (both red and green) and fry them in a saucepan.
After two minutes add the tomatoes already pealed and chipped to form a sauce.
Cook the sauce for about 20 minutes.
Spread some oil on a baking sheet.
Extend the dough on the baking sheet.
First spread the sauce on the dough and then do the same with the tuna fish and the pine nuts.
Sprinkle some flour on the surface and introduce it in the oven.
Let it cook for about 40 minutes at 190 degrees.

Let it cool before eating!!!!!

  Our relationship with animals

Erasmus club at Engrescats association

The Engrescades is an association founded by women who love animals. This association is dedicated to host pets that are abandoned, abused and / or are in judicial custody.

This association was founded in 2010. At first there was only 5-10 volunteers, there are currently 25-30 volunteers.
At the beginning of this project were located in an area on the outskirts of the village. But last year the city hall gave the land municipal protective.
The council has also collaborated yielding a specialized vehicle to bring animals.
Currently a partner with Dutch association involving to send the dogs to adopt there.
It was maintained thanks to volunteers and the City Hall.

On behalf of our Erasmus+ project, Let’s Save the Life on Our Planet, our school invited a nutritionist to hold a workshop with our students.
These are the points of the workshop: “What is hidden in the food we eat?” by Roser Subirats, expert nutritionist.

        Which nutrients can’t be left out in a healthy teenage diet?
 Good quality proteins, carbohydrates and healthy unsaturated fat, iron, calcium + vitamine D (to  improve the growth of bone mass) and zinc (to develop bone and muscular mass).
A balanced diet is the one which keeps the balance between the energy and the nutrients that we need with the energy and the nutrients that we take. Those must include 12-15% meat, fish or eggs, vegetables, 50-55% cereals and legumes, water (which must be drunk all day long), 5 spoonfulls of oilive oil (30-35%) and you must take dairy or fruit as a dessert every day
    Take sparingly : sugar, honey, jam, sweets, sugary drinks, pastry and bakery, butter,margarine, ice-cream and dairy products, alcoholic drinks.

   How to organize the food intakings.
Lunch and dinner
Fresh fruit
Cereals, tubers or legumes
Olive oil
Fruit and/or dairy
Bread and water

     Analysis of highly consumed products among teenagers. What nutrients do they provide? You must read the nutrition facts label. What healthy products/food can substitute these highly consumed products which do not provide healthy balanced nutrients?

In the first part of the workshop students compared their own diets with an ideal healthy diet...
·         When they were asked about their breakfast habits, more than a half of them do have breakfast before leaving home for school, but 20% of them never have breakfast before leaving for school.
Daily products are the most commonly taken for breakfast; a few of the students combine them with cereals and a very low percentage of them do ever eat fresh fruit.
·         The majority of the student group have a second breakfast while they are at school (classes begin at 8:30 a.m. and finish at 15:00 p.m.) They usually have a sandwich or a piece of fruit or some fruit juice. A very low percentage has some bakery with a soft drink from time to time.
·         The majority of the group take fatty/sugary foods (the ones at the top of the pyramid) once or twice a week. That kind of food is usually already-bottled juice which some of the students drink daily.
·         Comparing the servings of the different food groups, the least popular one is the vegetable group. Over a 50% of the group never or rarely eat salad or rare vegetables, although a serving a day is recommended so as to take advantage of the vitamins and minerals they provide.
During the second part of the workshop, students were really surprised to see the high number of additives in the ingredients list labels. Those additives can be dangerous for our health if we abuse of them.
Finally to finish the workshop the students enjoyed preparing and tasting healthy recipes hummus, home-made nutella, yoghurt with nuts, and almond milkshake with banana.

The sports

Our relationship with our body

The sports we practise

In our high school there are lots of students who practice several sports. The sports are very different among them.

-There are some team sports, such as Handball, Football and Basketball.
-And other ones are individual, such as athletics, skating, ballet, running and spinning.
-The average time that we practice sport is between 5 and 6 hours per week.
-The frequency that we practice sports is:

Hours per week
Handball 6h
Football 3h
Basketball 3h
Athletics 7’45h
Skating 9h
Ballet 6/8h
Running and spinning 3h

-Usually, the parts of a training session are the warm-up, the training and the stretching exercises at the end.
-Some sports have competitions every week. For example: handball, football… Some others, every term or season. For example: swimming, skating…

Relationships with animals. Our pets.

We made some videos and power point presentations about our pets and how we take care of them (when we take them for a walk, how we feed them, who gave them to us, etc.)

In this mini project, we learned that we have to be very responsible with our animals and environment.

By: Victor Juan and Helena Segarra


During this term we worked on the relationship with old people more specifically, with our grandparents.

All of us interviewed our grandparents and we talked about different topics:

-How they met their partners?
-How they imagined the future would be like?
-Free time
-Relationship with brothers and sisters
-How many children they would have?
-The school
-Traditional games.

Here you have a video of an interview.

Our relationship with animals

Bullfighting is very popular in Spain, but in Catalonia it has been banned for some years now.
In the South of Catalonia, the Ebre area, where we live there is bullfighting but with no animal death. Festivities with bulls are different.
People get together and set up  carriages or a scaffoldings in a circle to create a bullring.  They enjoy some food together while watching the brave ones in the ring running in front of the bulls.
There is music going on and lots of enjoyment.
This kind of celebration has arisen a lot of controversy as there are supporters and detractors on the way bulls are treated.

These are the arguments coming from both sides.

1. In our way of celebrating, bulls do not suffer and aren't killed.

2. It's better to experience with a real animal. The adrenaline high is real.

3. It's an ancient tradition in our villages and it should continue for generations.

4. Bullfighting is the only way to preserve the species and the economy of some families.
1. It's not necessary to use real animals to have fun.

2. The bull is not physically tortured but the stress is relevant and they even might  seriously injure themselves.

3. There are traditions that are not ethic, and so they should not be continued

4. Animals have feelings, too.
