CURSO 2016-17


La profesora de 4º A propuso al alumnado del grupo que investigaran en la web e hicieran trabajos sobre el tema central del Proyecto Erasmus+ para el 2º trimestre: "En sus zapatos". Cada alumno podía elegir hacerlo solo o con un compañero, además de optar por la forma de ejecución: poster, presentación powerpoint o mapa. Para entender mejor la historia de un inmigrante, a los estudiantes se les pidió que investigaran su viaje hacia una vida mejor, desde cuando dejan su tierra hasta que llega al país de destino, trazando el viaje en los mapas, viendo los países por los que pasa, etc.

Podían escribir un diario/registro del viaje y evaluar como su propio país se ha ido formando con el esfuerzo de mucha gente.

Además, los estudiantes podían elaborar encuestas sobre el impacto de las migraciones/inmigraciones/emigraciones.


Aquí encontráis una muestra de los trabajos entregados por unos cuantos alumnos:

Para celebrar Halloween, los alumnos han leído el comienzo de una historia de miedo y cada uno la ha terminado de una manera diferente. ¡El resultado ha sido sorprendente! Alumnos de varios ciclos de FP Superior de la tarde leyeron las historias que decoraban el hall y votaron las tres que más les gustaron. Muchas gracias a Ana Aliaga, su profesora de Inglés. Aquí podéis leer algunas de estas terroríficas historias:

HALLOWEEN IS COMING SOOOOOOON!!!!


Read the beginning of this short story and continue it. You may have to read it in front of some other students.
How sssscarrryyy!!!

I perfectly remember that cold winter night. It was January 13th ,1860, the same day that Paul and I had just got married. We were deeply in love with each other and had decided to spend our honeymoon somewhere remote from the city and the people we knew. We were invited to the luxurious mansion that his uncle, Lord James, had in the country, and we accepted as we did not have any other better choice.

After leaving the train station, we had to walk for a long time among the woods that led directly to the house. I will never forget the thick mist of that scary silent night, when we were able to perceive the most insignificant sounds of Nature. As I was very frightened, I asked my dear Paul to put his arm around me. Suddenly, we saw a dim light far in the distance that seemed to come from the mansion we were looking for…




We had to walk for five minutes to reach the house. When we arrived, we were so frightened that all I wanted was to come backto the train station. The mansion was very scary, we climbed the porch and rang the bell. My fear and my heart beat increased. Then, an old woman opened the door and invited us to come into the big mansion.
The mansion was luxurious, big and beautiful. My fear disapeared.We went to the bedroom and slept.
At midnight, Paul wasn’t in the bedroom and I began to hear
scary noises. My fear increased again. Suddenly, Paul came to thebedroom and we could go back to sleep again. After that scary day in the mansion, we prepared for dinner. I was waiting for Paul in the dining room for hours but he never came with me.
I knew he had not gone, I was sure that something unusual had happened to him. After a hundred years, I am still here, waiting for him. Waiting for him to come back and go home together.

The thought of getting inside the mansion was relieving. That’s why we ran over that light. Just to realise that it came from three candles which, for some reason, were placed in the shape of a triangle in the middle of nowhere. We didn’t want to question why they were there, so we left as soon as possible. We continued the trail to get to the mansion, however, the more we went deeply inside the woods, the farther it seemed that we were from the mansion. The mist was still visible, and the crows were staring at us as if they were watching us. And it was cold. It was really cold.

-Where are we Paul? When will we arrive?- I tried to calm myself.-Do not worry Emily. We should be seeing the house really soon.- Paul said.

He was actually right. We saw what looked like the end of this horrible maze, with no trees at the end. How great! But for our surprise, that wasn’t the mansion. The familiar scent of the candles’ wax struck my head. And we found again those three candles. Was someone placing these lights there on purpose? I noticed that there was some kind of sign surrounded by the candles which had written:

-NO TRESPASSING-

We were not going to fall for that, were we? I sure was really scared, but.. That was probably a joke.-Haven’t we come across these candles before?- I asked my dear Paul. –Maybe these are to lighten up the woods.- He said. –You don’t think... that there are ghosts here, right?!- I asked a bit out of my mind. -Oh, come on Emily! You know they are fake!- He told me.Was he scared? He seemed like he was shouting and getting angry. Suddenly, the wind blew away the candles. And then I heard Paul screaming. Really, really loudly. Inmediately, the fog grew thicker to the point that I could barely see my body. –Paul?! Paul where are you?!- There was no response from him. But there was from the birds which came towards me. I started to run. Maybe forgetting about the sign that said no trespassing. I didn’t care. I didn’t know what I was doing. I had the weird feeling that something was chasing me. But as I couldn’t see a thing... I slammed into a tree.

I woke up. I didn’t know how much time had passed since I lost consciousness, but I finally woke up. The fog had dissapeared which was something good, but I was alone. And I began to cry. –Where is Paul?!-I tried to ask myself that question but I knew I wouldn’t answer. I wandered through the woods on my own, so I could get to the mansion and explain Lord James what had happened. After some minutes... I saw them. Those stupid candles. They were lit on again. Was I stuck in some kind of loop which made me go in circles through this stupid forest? But wait... There was something near the candles.That something was covered in crows. It was a dead person. It was Paul. He had his stomach covered in blood as if someone had wanted to eat him.-What is this?! Paul?! Wh..What?!-I couldn’t even finish my thoughts as I felt a cold feeling near my back. After some seconds it started to hurt a lot. Then I fell onto the ground kicking the candles accidentally. Did I just die? Did someone just stab me? Or shoot me? I couldn’t see my murderer if there was even one. It hurt. It hurt. It hurt so much. I couldn’t even breathe. And then, with just a few seconds, the flames of the candles that I had kicked became a great fire that started to burn this hellish place. Specially something. Something like a sign that said:–NO TRESPASSING-. Maybe we shouldn’t have ignored it. The last thing I heard was the grass burning and the sound of pecks trying to dig inside something.

When we arrived at the mansion. There wasn’t anyone. There was only a light, we went in and we were alone. We left the door opened, when suddenly it closed and the light turned off, we were quiet and very scared. We didn’t know what to do when suddenly we began to hear a strange noise and wood creaked, we wanted to go out but the door was locked and we couldn’t open it. Lord James called the phone house because it was enchanted. Suddenly, a girl appeared and told us to leave the house because a ghost would lock us up in a room and we would never be able to get out. We didn’t know what to do. The girl disappeared. We looked at a window and we tried to go out.
Paul helped me to jump. When I could do it, he tried to jump out of the window too but the ghost caught him.
I didn’t know what to do.
I ran towards the forest, until I got home...
He disappeared in the house…
Paul did never return after that day.

TERCER PREMIO


We were frightened, but we didn´t have anywhere to spend the night and we decided to stay in the mansion. It was very cold and the light that we had seen wasn´t there anymore. The mansion was totally dark. There wasn´t electricity, we had to light up some candles to be able to see. The house had four floors, but we were tired and we decided to stay on the first floor. It was very cold and Paul left the mansion to look for some firewood and to be able to make a fire. I stayed in the house waiting for him, suddenly I could hear loud sounds and I was too frightened. I sat down on an old chair. When I was sitting I saw a white light that passed in front of me. I only wanted to shout and to run far away, but I was very still. While I was waiting for Paul, I began to think in another thing, and I remembered my beautiful wedding and the good day that I had spent next to my family, my friends and my dear Paul. But in that moment I could hear a deep voice that repeated my name. I was very frightened and I decided to leave the mansion and to stay at the door waiting for Paul. I left the door open and suddenly it closed. Strange things were happening; I had never imagined my honeymoon like this. Paul came with the firewood and with a scared face. He told me that he had seen a ghost. The two of us decided to get inside the mansion and to light up the fire because it was very cold. When we walked inside, we began to hear some voices that told us This is your end´´ and we decided to leave the mansion. When our friends and our family started to leave as well, they shouted at us, Surprise´´! They had played a joke on us. When I found out I wanted to kill them because I had been very frightened. Thereafter we threw a party, with food and music that our family and our friends had brought. That night was fantastic! Later the people we knew left the mansion and we spent the night in the luxury mansion, without strange voices and without ghosts.

. . . And then, we could see the lights of the gate that was surrounding the house. It looked like nobody had been living in the mansion for along time. But when we walked a little bit more along the road, the gates opened slowly.
We walked into the big garden, there were a lot of trees inside, in front of us there was a big fountain without water and a little bit farther there was the house. It didn’t look any luxurious but it was very big and also very old.
But there wasn’t anybody there, we were alone. Suddenly the lights turned off. We got afraid and we started to run outside that place, but the enormous gate closed really quickly, and we had no scape. The only place that we could enter was the big scary house that was in front of us, covering the moon.
By Sergio Fernandez Lorca



We followed the dim light, we were frightened because there wasn’t much light in the woods. Paul and I walked what seemed like a lot of time for me until we saw the mansion. It was so big but it was really old too.
We went inside and it was crowded with people, I felt something was wrong. All of them were talking but no one was laughing, they looked worried like if something really bad was going to happen…
I remember really well what the mansion was like, it was extremely luxurious and it had many paintings. In the centre of the living room there was a crystal chandelier, it was so beautiful. Paul went to talk to his uncle when suddenly a big noise occurred, he ran outside the house.
I was so nervous, I didn’t know what to do, people became angry and they put their eyes on me and started to walk toward me.
- ‘Paul! Paul! Help me!’ I shouted.
Then I woke up, it had been a nightmare! I told Paul about my nightmare and he laughed about it.
- ‘Oh my gosh, it seemed so real!’ I said.
- ‘I felt like you were going to kill me! I felt horrible’ I said again.
That day we went to the mansion and we had a great time there, I met such nice people, no noises or angry ones!

Diana Vallejos Cordova




When we entered the house we heard a strange sound coming from the stairs leading down to a basement. When I heard I shouted and we ran to the bed room. When I closed the door, we heard a knock on the floor of the corridor. We thought that was Paul’s cousin but when I opened the door I didn’t see his cousin; I watched a ghost, it was so big and Horrible!! The ghost, with a huge shout brought us out of the house
and we ran to the city centre safely.


Jose Maria Ros Nicolás 4ºA



We walked along a narrow path that was in the forest and led to the mansion where Paul and I were staying. We walked for ten minutes going through the forest until we reached the door of the house. Everything was dark except a room that had the light on and where I thought I saw the shadow of an old woman walking, but thought just it was the cleaning lady. Paul opened the door, entered the house and we were kindly served by a butler who told us where our room, the bathroom, the kitchen and the dining room were. The butler told us to rest and he told us that dinner was at ten o'clock, but just before leaving, I asked if the cleaning services were working, and he said no, because they worked in the morning, so I started to think that it might have been the shadow of the
windowiT Wtime for dinner, and I was thinking it might have been the shadow of the window. But I didn´t find an answer. Paul said nothing not to scare me, he's very wimpy and didn´t want to ruin our honeymoon. Days passed and I finally found an answer to what I saw in the window, so I entered the room and there was nobody, just a coat rack with a couple of coats and hats and a fan working. I couldn´t see anybody, so I calmed down, but I wasn´t sure what I saw in the window, so I went to the street to look at the window again.
Yes, I did; I saw again the shadow of an old lady on the go, but how could that be? If I had just stood there and there was nobody there. I ran to the room and I didn´t see anybody, I just saw the same coat rack with the same clothes. I was amazed and I stopped to think for a few seconds, and - Of course!!, I exclaimed. The shadow that I saw was the shadow of the clothes rack, and the fan in the room which was moving. I was silly, how could I think there was a ghost in the house???
Víctor Sánchez




We were talking until this light was increasingly terrible, until finally we saw the mansion. The night spent in this mansion was horrible because strange noises were listened and also baby voices. At dawn I got up to drink water, went down to the kitchen, I saw as the door of the house was opened and with a few spots of blood.
When I saw it I ran to say it to Paul, but he could not wake up, and I, for curiosity sake, went down again and found the door was closed and there was no blood on it, and I fainted away.
I woke up the following day in a cabin and thought a wood cutter had gathered me from the soil. I knew this house was enchanted.

WORLD KINDNESS DAY

El IES “Ramón y Cajal” de Murcia celebró el viernes 13 el Día Mundial de la Amabilidad. Esta es una actividad que ese enmarca en nuestro proyecto Erasmus+ KA2 LIFE.

En clase hicimos el “amigo invisible” intercambiándonos tarjetas en las que ensalzábamos las cualidades de nuestro amigo “secreto”, elaboramos pegatinas con frases alusivas al día de la amabilidad y decoradas con mucho cariño. Las intercambiamos en clase y también con otros alumnos que hicieron de jurado en Halloween, leyendo las distintas historias creadas por los alumnos y eligiendo las tres que más les gustaron. Alumnos de grupos de la mañana y también de la tarde decoraron nuestro “Árbol de la Amabilidad” con post-its repletos de mensajes positivos en español, francés e inglés. Otros alumnos elaboraron presentaciones sobre cómo ser amables con el mundo que nos rodea, o hicieron atractivos posters sobre la amabilidad también en francés e inglés. En el recreo repartimos muchos “abrazos gratis”. Todos estos gestos nos acercaron mucho, nos motivaron a todos los que participamos y esperamos que otros muchos se contagiaran de todas estas emociones positivas.

LIBRÓMETRO

Además, dado el éxito que el librómetro tuvo en el curso anterior, hemos elaborado otro con los libros de a biblioteca de aula adaptados a 4º ESO, aunque cada alumno elige el libro que más se adapta a su nivel. En él los alumnos valoran los libros que leen, y también rellenan una ficha de lectura con los datos básicos sobre las lecturas: argumento, personajes principales y secundarios, qué les ha gustado más y qué menos, y si cambiarían su título e incluso el desenlace propuesto por el autor. Este año hemos puesto en marcha un carné de lector en el que anoto el libro leído y cada 4 libros leídos el alumno puede ver su nota aumentada hasta en un punto.

Los alumnos de 4º A Bilingüe han leído un artículo en el periódico digital The Guardian sobre los ganadores del premio Nobel de la Paz 2014 enlazado al blog de la profesora: http://rycenglish.blogspot.com.es/.

Los alumnos estaban muy motivados porque ya el curso pasado estudiaron este personaje y escucharon su discurso ante las Naciones Unidas e hicieron posters con citas suyas (se pueden ver en esta wiki en 3º ESO Inglés).

Tras leerlo han contestado a una serie de preguntas que demuestran su comprensión, y cuyo contenido van a utilizar para elaborar un manifiesto durante los actos que celebramos en el IES con motivo del Worl Kindness day, que para nosotros va a ser el mes de la amabilidad, y en concreto durante las actividades del 25 de noviembre, Día internacional contra la violencia de género.

HALLOWEEN 31 de octubre

Halloween Decoration (Upcycling from Rubbish)


Como todos los cursos, celebramos esta fiesta típicamente anglosajona decorando nuestro centro. Esta vez hemos decidido utilizar materiales de reciclaje para elaborar los adornos de este día. Así conseguimos crear arte a partir de materiales de deshecho, una de las actividades de nuestro actual proyecto Erasmus + LIFE.

Además de visitar páginas web en inglés y en español, los alumnos han tenido que contarnos en inglés cuáles han sido los materiales que han utilizado para su elaboración y el proceso que han seguido para ello. Aquí van algunos ejemplos:


1. Title: “Yellow frankenstein”
2. Materials Needed:
a) A Bottle of Lye
b) Cardboard (Black and White)
c) Markers
d) Old Rag
3. How to Make It?
First you have to cut the cardboard to create the hair. Once done, wrap up the hair around the bottle and stick it. Then you have to cut 2 eyebrows of black cardboard and stick them on the bottle too.
Now you need a piece of white cardboard to make a circle with a compass to form the white part of the eye. And make a circle in a piece of black cardboard (smaller than the other) and finally you stick both on the bottle. Finally, you can decorate the face of “Yellow frankenstein” as you like.

Como veis los alumnos investigaron sobre los inventores españoles e hicieron pósters interactivos con información tanto sobre el invento como por el personaje español que lo llevó a cabo. Sus trabajos formaron parte de la exposición del hall del Centro para que todo el mundo tuviera fácil acceso a ellos.
MASKS

En marzo continuamos con otra actividad también del proyecto Erasmus titulada "Masks", con ella nuestros alumnos investigaron sobre la realidad de nuestro país en el ámbito social, político, económico y cultural para poder hacer una reflexión crítica sobre ella. Y lo hicieron a través de "Limericks". —El Limerick es una composición poética de cinco versos basada en el “nosense” o “sin sentido”. Es una poesía en la que cabe todo, hasta lo más absurdo. Consta de cinco versos que riman AABBA.

PROFESORA: Mª JESÚS PÉREZ SOLA

GRUPO: 4º A BILINGÜE

Los alumnos bilingües del Centro realizaron una visita al Aeropuerto de Murcia-San Javier el día 9 de Abril.

Fue una visita guiada en inglés y nuestros guías eran voluntarios y alumnos de nivel avanzado de la EOI de Cartagena.
Empezamos asistiendo a una charla informativa antes de recorrer distintas dependencias del aeropuerto:
1- El hall de “Salidas”, donde nos explicaron, entre otras cosas, los pormenores del equipaje, el funcionamiento de los controles de seguridad para personas y objetos y el procedimiento a seguir para pasar por el control.
2- La “Sala de Embarque”, donde los monitores nos dieron información general.
3- Recorrido hasta la estación de bomberos. Allí conocimos el Servicio Extinción de Incendios (SEI): descripción vehículos, uniforme y equipamiento.
4- Charla de los halconeros, quienes nos explicaron el control fauna, tan necesario para evitar accidentes aéreos.
5- En la sala de “Llegadas” los alumnos hicieron entrevistas en inglés a los pasajeros que acababan de aterrizar desde Manchester. Antes de empezar a hacer preguntas, los alumnos tuvieron que presentarse y explicar la actividad a los pasajeros.

La mañana fue muy novedosa, entretenida y divertida. Los alumnos se lo pasaron genial a juzgar por sus comentarios en directo y recogidos por sus profesoras en el resumen que hicieron para completar esta actividad.

A continuación podemos ver unas fotos de grupo y a algún alumno de 4º haciendo su entrevista. Espero que os gusten las fotos.
Fijaros que aparecemos en las pantallas informativas y nos vamos a ¡¡¡¡¡ New York !!!!!

En el 2º trimestre del curso escolar 2013-14 el alumnado de 4º ESO bilingüe ha realizado diversos trabajos relacionados con el proyecto interdisciplinar de AACC propuesto para el nivel de 4º ESO: GIBRALTAR.

El pasado verano Gibraltar fue una de las ciudades que estaba casi a diario en los medios de comunicación por asuntos internacionales y que afectaban al área política, económica y social. Todo esto, junto con el hecho de ser un lugar relativamente cercano a nuestra comunidad y donde el bilingüísmo se practica a diario, hizo que fuera un tema atractivo para la asignatura de inglés.

A continuación podemos ver algunas presentaciones que abordan el bilingüísmo en la colonia de Gibraltar.

La 1ª presentación en powerpoint es de Mishell Miranda. En ella se nos muestra el himno y escudo de los Gibraltareños y se centra en la convivencia de la lengua oficial con el "Spanglish".




La siguiente presentación es de Ikram Hejjaj - En ella su autora se centra en 3 aspectos:

1º- Información general sobre Gibraltar,

2º- El bilingüísmo, con pequeñas conversaciones reales, y con vocabulario y frases en las 3 lenguas que conviven en el día a día (el llanito, el castellano y el inglés) y

3º- Lugares de interés turístico y edificios históricos




El siguiente trabajo es un mural realizado por Irene Gonzalez. En él encontramos información sobre: 1- la situación geográfica de Gibraltar, 2- infraestructuras, 3- el conflicto diplomático, 4- población y 5- la moneda.

HALLOWEEN 2013 en el IES RAMÓN Y CAJAL

El grupo bilingüe de 4º A ha realizado varios trabajos para la exposición de HALLOWEEN. Su profesora les dio varias ideas para hacer sus proyectos y les ha dirigido y aconsejado cuando así se lo han pedido.

Todos los alumnos mostraron gran interés, pues les encanta ver sus trabajos expuestos y se aprecia un poco de competitividad entre ellos. Además, la celebración de esta fiesta es relativamente reciente y al alumnado le resulta bastante atractiva.

Como podéis ver abajo en las fotos sus trabajos se han expuesto en el hall, en las columnas o encima de una mesa montada para esta exposición. Buscando ser innovadores esta vez los alumnos han realizado:

• Féretros realizados con cajas de zapatos y con motivos tétricos (manos y momias saliendo de la caja fúnebre...)

• Dibujos que representan escenas y personajes típicos de Halloween

DÍA EUROPEO DE LAS LENGUAS: PLURILINGÜISMO
=

El 1er trabajo en INGLÉS propuesto para alumnos de AACC (que se encuentran en los grupos bilingües) ha sido para conmemorar el Día Europeo de las Lenguas, celebrado el 26 de Septiembre.

A los alumnos de este grupo se les pidió que dibujaran un mapa de Europa y colorearan los países que actualmente componen la UE (28). Para empezar los países debían de tener su nombre en inglés, y como el objetivo final era el conocer la gran variedad de lenguas oficiales que se hablan en cada uno de los países, a los alumnos se les pidió que eligieran una o dos palabras básicas (bienvenido, hola, adiós o similares) y buscaran con ayuda de los traductores como se dicen en las demás lenguas. Para obtener distintos resultados, lo más originales posibles, su profesora les dio algunas ideas, como por ejemplo usar los colores de las respectivas banderas. Además podían utilizar palitos chinos, hilos gruesos, canutillos, bocadillos,... para que las palabras elegidas se conectaran con su respectivo país. Los resultados fueron buenos y algunos de ellos excelentes, teniendo en cuenta que solo tuvieron una semana desde que se les comentó hasta su entrega para poder montar una exposición en el Hall del Centro.

A continuación vemos fotografías de algunos de los mejores trabajos:

DÍA DE LA FRUTA

FRUTA1.JPG
"One apple a day keeps the doctor away"


El 16 de octubre celebramos el Día de la fruta como alternativa saludable a la bollería que nuestros alumnos y alumnas suelen consumir a la hora de recreo.
Repartimos muchas manzanas y los chicos y chicas también trajeron su fruta favorita. La actividad fue todo un éxito gracias a la activa colaboración de alumnado y profesorado.

El objetivo de actividades como ésta es fomentar entre nuestro alumnado hábitos saludables en los que el deporte y la actividad física regular sean un pilar fundamental.

      BLANCANIEVES

Vimos la película de Pablo Berger: una versión libre, de carácter gótico, del popular cuento de los hermanos Grimm, ambientada en España durante los años 20.
Blancanieves es Carmen, una bella joven con una infancia atormentada por su terrible madrastra Encarna.

Los alumnos trabajaron los valores que aparecen esta versión que, al estar rodada en blanco y negro, utiliza la música con maestría para transmitirnos emociones. Además, buscaron información en inglés en internet sobre la película, lo expusieron ante sus compañeros, y lo expusimos en un mural durante la Semana del Libro del IES:

E-mail to WWF
To… membership@wwfus.org
Subject: Help the penguin

Hello!
I turn to this organization for help for an endangered species. Is the penguin and I'd like to leave a bit of information I have found on these friendly animals.
The word “penguin” means fat bird and has Portuguese origins. Penguins are known for their sleek (like a tuxedo), appearance, - with white and black, which gives them a unique look. They are a species of bird; however, they are unable to fly.
During the mating season, penguins are concentrated in large colonies where they gather to breed.
As you have seen, penguins are a very interesting species. Hopefully soon, the changes are treated better.
Thank you very much, Sol.

Hi,
My name is Jesús and I´m 15 years old. I´m a student and I want to inform you about the current situation of the giant panda.
The giant panda (ailuropoda melanoleuca) is a large animal, like a bear, with long white dense and woolly hair. Its legs, shoulders, ears and eye area are black. The tail is wide and short.
They live in the cold and wet bamboo forest of eastern Tibet and southwestern China. They´re omnivore. They feed on bamboo shoots and other plants such as herbs, gentians, lilies, crocus and rodents and birds, as well as fish. One of their problems is that throughout the years, the population has been shifting to the areas inhabited by the panda and
bamboo forests have been cut down, reducing their power supply.
Another of their problems is the illegal hunting. The hunters want their thick skin. It is very coveted in illegal markets of the Far East. The low birth rate, the high infant mortality rate and the destruction of their natural environment have been placed under threat of extinction.
I'm waiting for your help,
Jesús.


Sumatran Tiger
To: World Wildlife Found
From: Tania Pedregosa
Subject: Protecting Sumatran tigers

The Sumatran tiger is a rare tiger subspecies that inhabits the Indonesian island of Sumatra.
The Sumatran tigers are the smallest of the tigers that survive in the actuality. Their stripes are thinner than those of other subspecies of tigers, and have a beard or mane developed, especially in the case of males. Their small size allows them to move more easily into the jungle. They also have a membrane between the fingers of their feet, that makes them very fast swimmers.
They are good hunters since they have a keen sense of vision and hearing.
I think that we have to protect this animal and all the animals that there are at risk, because they are part of the planet's biodiversity and they deserve that we help them.

INTERPRETACION-IMAGINACIÓN-CREATIVIDAD

=
Seguimos reflexionando sobre lo que transmiten los cuadros, para dejar fluir la imaginación, acercarse a lo que quería expresar el autor, e interpretar un cuadro.

external image images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQK_wA16ZiL41w8GTjG_i-ZTXOrzED30DuAo6R1DODI8KMG2e36nAexternal image images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRpjSfPRjCKpDJA_XFR-Xj3_MoI8SragnBmGNYob4f_BciYsn44

En esta actividad nos centramos en el Impresionismo. ¿Por qué? Pues porque en su momento supuso una nueva forma de interpretar el mundo, en el que el realismo se desdibujaba, y convertían en protagonistas de su arte al color, las luces, y las formas. En el Impresionismo los cuadros se convertían en un cúmulo de impresiones del propio pintor para ser interpretadas por el propio espectador.
Por eso nosotros, para contribuir a crear jóvenes optimistas, con ilusión por mantener vivos los sueños y por crear un futuro mejor y hacer que esos sueños se hagan realidad, propusimos a nuestro alumnado una aventura: una visita virtual a la Galería Nacional de Londres, para que pudieran llenarse de energía, interpretar libremente las obras expuestas y así dejar volar su imaginación. Para ello pusimos un enlace en el blog de la profesora http://rycenglish. blogspot.com a la página web del museo para que pudieran resolver esta webquest :


www.nationalgallery.org.uk



Primero contestando a unas preguntas sobre el impresionismo para aprender qué temas solían elegir para pintar, los colores que utilizaban, lo que querían expresar, las ventajas que supuso el uso de los tubos de pintura hasta entonces no existían, cómo pintaban, y qué materiales incluían a veces en sus cuadros para experimentar con las texturas…
Después les invitamos a hacer un recorrido por las obras impresionistas del museo para elegir una que tuvieron que describir en inglés:

La Balancoire was painted by Renoir in 1876. It shows a man with his back towards us, who is talking to a young woman standing on a swing, and a man leaning against a tree. The shapes aren´t flat or simple and the painting is very realistic.

It looks like the woman is looking away, as annoyed about what they are saying. In the background, there is a group of people who Renoir has painted quickly with a few brush strokes.

The colours are bright, and Renoir tries to paint how the light affects places, people and things at different times of the day.

In La Balancoire,the artist shows a moment of his life, like a photograph. In my opinion it´s too difficult paint a painting and it looks like a photograph.

“Emotional Story”


Por ´´ultimo, y para dejar volar su imaginación y fomentar la creatividad, les propusimos escribir una

historia que el cuadro descrito les hubiera sugerido. Aquí podéis leer algunas:





The ballet dancer by Edgar Degas

París was known as the city of art and dance. There lives Marie, a little girl with a big dream.

Marie had her fourteenth birthday in 1872 and belonged to a poor family who lived in the worst suburb of Paris.

One day, when she returned back to school she saw a big poster that said:

MONDAY 24 OF APRIL

AUDITIONS OF NEW BALLET DANCERS

ONLY GIRLS SMALLER THAN 18''

Marie felt an amazing feeling. Maybe they would take her and she would become a professional ballet dancer.

Marie ran to her home to tell her mother:

-MUM! -shouted Marie.

-What do you want, baby? -asked Carla, her mother.

-I want to go to the auditions of the ballet dancers, mum -answered Marie- if they choose me I will go to ''The Ballet school of Paris'' and they will teach me how dance to be a great dancer.

-But Marie, that is for rich people, we can’t afford it -said sadly Carla.

Marie ran to her room and started to cry. The auditions were the next day and she wouldn't give up.

The cock that gives a new day sang and Marie quickly woke up, she had breakfast and ran to ''The Ballet school of Paris''

All the girls looked at her with snub, because her clothes were dirty and ragged. When it was her turn, she danced with her heart and her soul.

At mid-morning the jury gave his verdict and Marie was chosen.

She started to cry and a jury's member asked her:

-What's up?-.

-I'm very happy but I can't pay the school -answered Marie.

-But, these auditions are to give scholarships, you don't have to pay -said the jury's member.

She hugged him and said: '' I'm going to be the best. I promise ''

THE FOREST POND

Sofia was a nineteen-year-old girl who lived in a country house surrounded by a large garden. Since she was small she had lived there with her family and there was where she wanted to spend the rest of her life. Her favourite place was the forest pond surrounded by trees and with a small wooden bridge. One day Sofia’s plans had to change and she left the country house to go to the city to study.
Sofia studied to be a teacher at the university, but what she really liked was painting. She now lived in a small apartment in the city that was decorated with paintings that she had painted. When she ended the study to be a teacher she began working as a teacher at a small school and she taught the children the beauty of painting.
The years had passed and Sofia had married and had a daughter. One day while she was sleeping, she recalled the country house and the forest pond of her childhood. Summer was near and Sofia returned with her family to the country house, when they came to the house they saw that it was very spoiled. She thought that they had to repair it to be able to return to live there.
The family worked on the reform of the house, and after several months of work the house was repaired. During the reform, Sofia had commissioned to restore the pond of her childhood and thanks to her efforts the pond once again became a place full of life. The family left the city and returned to the country house.One day in the country house, Sofia took a canvas and she went to the pond, she put the canvas in a tree and she began to paint the landscape. It took her several weeks, but one afternoon she finished the painting and hung it in the living room so everyone could see the beauty of the forest pond.
Finally, Sofia got her dream, she had returned to her childhood home and she never would forget the forest pond thanks to the painting that she hung in the living room. She would spend the rest of her life in the country house with her family as she always had wanted.

My story about “The Beach at Trouville”There were two women on a beach. They were talking about her lives. Camille (the woman on the left) was Monet´s wife. She said to the other woman that Monet was an excellent artist. The other woman started to cry. Camille said: -Why are you crying? The woman answered: -Because… Because I miss my son. He went to London and he hasn´t come to visit me for two years. -Be happy! Your son will come to your house soon. I have heard that he caught a plane yesterday at London´s airport. -Oh! It’s fantastic. Thank for tell me this news! They finished to talk. At the moment, the woman´s son appeared there and they went to their house.
Fran García


Story based on La Balancoire , painted by Renoir
The Renoir family was a very happy family. He was a painter, one of the most famous painter of the era. They had a daughter, Alice. Every Sunday, they met together as a family. They used to do it in the countryside. Francoise, his brother, had a house in the countryside. There, there was a swing and –Alice used to spend all day swinging.

One day, Renoir wet to call Alice to eat, but she wasn´t on the swing. Immediately, he went to find her in the house, but she wasn´t there either. Then, he told everyone who was there about her disappearance.

Everyone begun to look for her. The hours passed and passed and Alice didn´t appear. His mother hadn´t got enough strength to stand and she fainted. It was already seven o´clock in the evening when Alice appeared. Apparently, the swing had been broken and Alice went to find some wood to make a new one. Along the way, she found a strawberry field and she stopped to eat. Later, she found a dog, which she named Pluto. Pluto was an abandoned dog which was very hungry. Then Alice though that she could feed it, but for this they should came back to her uncle´s house. Thanks to Pluto they could return.

When she saw her dad and her mum, she run to hug them. They asked her where she had been and not to do it again. She ask them if she could keep the dog and they agreed she could.

"Nigthlife"

based on "The Boulevard Montmartre at Night", by Camille Pissarro




I was walking freely in the streets of Paris trying to find a gloomy and mysterious bar in which to drown my sorrows in alcohol when I saw a small bright banner that said “free”. Yes, it was a hotel. It seemed it was my lucky night. “After three days wandering the streets of Paris, I could use a warm bath” I thought.
I walked up to the dirty and unkempt hotel room and I thought I'd take a nap on the bed when I saw a large window in my room which showed an inmense wonder of the world. It seemed simple, but for me it was beautiful. I didn’t have my camera at the time, so I decided to invade those wonderful seconds of glory. I chose to take a brush and do a little sketch. I finished it and I noticed that it didn’t suggest anything to me. To finish it, I just added bright colours, fleeting, but with a great sense and magical night.
I spent the whole night sitting in a chair, watching the beautiful scenery that was exposed in front of me. The next day, I began my journey through new worlds and cultures. I left my room painting abandoned. I had forgotten to put any sign or my name on it. I will never forget that night. It was the best of my life.

‘’ The Hiding’’

Lavacourt is a small quiet hamlet where no one believed that something could happen, but one day everything changed.

George’s family moved to Lavacourt. George was a very curious and intelligent twelve year old boy, who liked to look at the details.

Arriving at their new home, George went to his new bedroom, he opened all the drawers and cupboards. Suddenly he noticed that there was something hidden in the wardrobe and it was a painting of the hamlet, it was a very beautiful painting and he decided to hang it on the wall.

The next morning George’s mother went for a walk through the hamlet, and George wanted to accompany her. While they were walking, George saw a painting that there was in a store and he asked his mother if they could enter the store.

George examined the painting, while his mother watched other paintings. He took a photo without the shop assistant noticing, because there was something that distinguished this painting from the other.

George and his mother returned to their home. George looked at the new picture and at the other picture in his bedroom, trying to look at all the details, he saw one thing was missing in one of the paintings, it looked like a basement door.

He went to the place where the little door should be, but it wasn’t there.

He saw a confectionery and ran to buy a muffin because he was hungry, he overheard two women talking about the snow that had risen two meters since 1920, this made him think that maybe the door was still there, but that had been covered because fifteen years had passed.

It was ten o’clock and George started his plan, he went to the place where the door should be, and began to dig to remove the snow. Finally, he found the door.

He removed all the snow in order to open it and, although the door had a padlock, he managed to open it.

He grabbed a flashlight and went down slowly, in the basement he saw many paintings; next to one of the paintings, there was a note: ‘’ If you’re reading this note, it’s because you found my hidden paintings. Right now I can’t show them and I wish that somebody would do it for me. Could it be you?. Signed Monet.’’

George went to see all the pictures and he called his parents and explained what had happened. His parents called an art gallery and told them. The art gallery explained to them that Monet had left some of his paintings hidden somewhere. The art gallery took the pictures and thanked George's family for all.

Now George, whenever he can, goes to the art gallery and observes the magnificent Monet's paintings that, thanks to the destiny, he found.
