School Rules

Hi bloggers!

The students of 3rd ESO have been preparing some projects about the School Rules. It has been a funny way to practise the Modal Verbs, as they have to find a song that matches each rule. At the same time, they have written and performed one song that includes all of them.

Here you have some examples of the songs. We are editing the videos with their projects and we will show you them as soon as possible.

Enjoy and pay attention!!

Little Mix, the band

I’m going to talk about my favourite girl band: Little Mix.
Little Mix is a British girl band composed by: Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall. These four girls made their group on the X Factor UK (a reality music show to find new singing talents). They didn’t know who were they until the coaches of the program decide to made a girl band with these four girls. Immediately they decided to continue with this project that the coaches made. They won the program in 2011.

Since this date, they became a famous group and they made their first album in 2012; they called it: DNA. After the success that their first album had, they made their second album in 2013: Salute. This was more famous than DNA, and in this album, they were more amazing and confident.
Then, in 2015 they made Get Weird, and amazing album, with a lot of incredible songs.
Finally, in 2016, they released their new amazing album: Glory Days. A fantastic album that talks about some things that the girls lived and their experiences.
I love their music because it makes me feel so great, confident, they have girl power and I have fun when I am listening to their albums. I think that this girl band is amazing and incredible and I recommend it to all the people.

Amaya Valdemoro

Today I will talk to you about the famous basketball player Amaya Valdemoro.
She was born on the 18th August of 1972, in Madrid. He played in the position of eaves, with the number 13.
She won three WNBA championship rings and competed in two Olympic Games (Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008). She was voted as the MVP of the EuroBasket Women 2007. 
Valdemoro was selected with the 30th overall pick in the 1998 WNBA Draft by the Houston Comets. She played with the Comets from 1998 to 2000, winning championships in each of those three seasons.
She has played in two Summer Olympics with the SWNBT (Spain Women's National Basketball Team) at the 2004 and 2008 Summer Olympics.  
In 2011, she suffered a rupture of the radius in the two wrists. Because of that event, he had to be out of competitions for 6 weeks, and then Amaya decided to retire.

For me, she has been the best girl player in the world and it will be forever.

The Olympic Gods in Ancient Greece

In the Antic Greece, the Olympic gods were the most important gods in the Mount Olympus. I think that their stories and powers are very interesting, so I am going to explain to you some characteristics about each god. As there are a lot of gods and goddess, I will explain a little bit about six of them.

Hera: Queen of the gods and goddess of the marriage and the family. She is  Chrono and Rea’s daughter. She is Zeus’s sister and is married to him.

Zeus: He was the “king” of the Mount Olympus. He is the king of the gods. He is the god of the sky and the thunder. He is Chrono and Rea’s son. His wife is Hera, but he had a lot of lovers.

Athena: She is the goddess of the wisdom, the crafts, the defence and the strategic war. She’s Zeus and Metis’ daughter .

Poseidon: He’s a very famous god. He’s the king of the earthquakes, the seas and the horses. He’s a half son of Chrono and Rea. He’s married with Amphitrite.

Aphrodite: Goddess of the love, beauty and desire. She’s daughter of Zeus and Dione, born of the foam of the sea. She’s married with Hephaestus, but she had a lot of lovers, in special, Ares.

The Bicycle

I chose this means of personal transport and sport, because I can enjoy it and it’s a good way to go around the cities, countryside, mountains and beaches.
Another thing I like about, it is that I can do various sports or activities such as: running, climbing low mountains, participating in jumping competition...

To take part in these activities, you can find different types of bicycles.
Mountain bikes for walks and runs. It is a bicycle designed for off-road cycling. Mountain bikes share similarities with other bikes, but incorporate features designed to enhance durability and performance in rough terrain. These typically include suspension, more durable heavy duty wheels and more powerful brakes.

A track bicycle or track bike is a bicycle optimized for racing at a velodrome or outdoor track. Tires are narrow and inflated to high pressure to reduce rolling resistance.

BMX bikes are specially designed to practice BMX (Bicycle Moto Cross), mode of cycling derived from motocross in which tricks and stunts are performed. BMX bikes are small in size for greater maneuverability, they have wide handlebars for greater bike control, they provide metal supports for tricks and they usually carry the saddle in its lowest position so it does not interfere with jumping.

Here you have the compositions!!

Enjoy them!

Harry Potter

The last English Day in our school was about the Harry Potter’s Saga and I want to talk about the plot of the films, but, only the beginning because I don’t want to be a spoiler. I’m not going to talk only about it, I want to go deep to the four different houses of Hogwarts, the School of Magic.
In the first film we saw a little boy who was living with his uncles in a miserable way. That boy was named Harry Potter, when he started living with his uncles he was growing thinking that his parents died in a human and typical way, but that’s not the truth. Some years went though and one marvellous day, when Harry was at home, one mysterious letter appeared in the post-box. A card letter to Harry, it was the first letter that he had received in his entire life. It was a letter from Hogwarts, one of the most prestigious Schools of Magic. He had problems at home because his uncles didn’t want to tell Harry he was a magician. Some things happened in the film, things that you won’t know if you don’t see the films. (Please, see them.)
When a new witch or magician enters to Hogwarts they have to take a magic and special hat and put it on his/her head, this magic hat knows how to read the personality of the person who has it. The hat has to think about the good and bad things of the new student because he had to assign him/her to one of the four houses.  Hogwarts offers four houses for different types of students with the names of the people who founded them: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin.
First we have Gryffindor, it was founded by Godric Gryffindor, a brave and honorable magician. The representative colours are gold and red, and they have a lion as an animal representation.
Then we have Hufflepuff, which is for kind and true loyal magicians. It was founded by Helga Hufflepuff and their colours are black and yellow, the animal is a badger.
Ravenclaw has the representation of an eagle and it was founded by Rowena Ravenclaw. It is for intelligent and intellectual magicians. Their colours are blue and bronze.

And last, Slytherin, the green snakes that have a very bad reputation. It was founded by Salazar Slytherin and the representative colours are emerald and silver. Obviously they have a snake as an animal representation of them.

How to make an aquarium

Hi bloggers! Do you want to have an aquarium at home?
The first step is to cut three equal rectangular glass sides. 
Then cut two squares of glass with a similar size to the one of the rectangle. 
The next step is to paste all the crystals with silicone. 
When everything is closed, we decorate it with plastic seaweed and fill it with water. 
The last step would be to put fish inside and we would have the aquarium done.

The Machu Pichu

Machu Picchu is one of the most important archaeological and architectural treasures of the Inca Empire in Peru. It is inscribed on the List of World Heritage by UNESCO since 1983.

The sacred city of Machu Picchu is located 130 kilometers northeast of Cusco, on the crest of the mountain Machu Picchu, at 2,200 meters above de the sea level.
The location of the city was a military secret, as the deep cliffs and mountains were the best natural defence.

It was a "llaqta" (Inca city), a settlement built to control the economy of conquered regions. Llaqta was the most beautiful of the Inca empire, and had been built to shelter the most select aristocracy in case of attack. It seems that was used for a time as a "resting place" and the Sapa Inca as "observatory". After the conquest of the empire by the Spaniards, was the lack of strength of the revolt Inka.

All buildings in Machu Picchu follow the classic Inca architecture. Between stone and stone, no head or a knife.

 The area built in Machu Picchu is 530 meters long by 200 meters wide and includes at least 172 enclosures. The complex is  divided into two large areas: the agricultural area, consisting of sets of terraces for farming, which lies to the south; And the urban area, which is where the occupants lived and where the main civil and religious activities took place. Both zones are separated by a wall, a moat and a stairway.
