SUSPENSIÓN CLASES/ SCHOOL LOCKDOWN

Estimadas familias:
Esperamos que todos os encontréis bien. Estamos viviendo una situación extraordinaria y por eso tenemos que adoptar medidas diferentes.
Como sabéis, el colegio estará cerrado al menos por 15 días. Durante el tiempo que dure la suspensión de la actividad lectiva, utilizaremos el blog como un diario. Las teachers iremos colgando cada día actividades que l@s alumn@s debéis realizar para seguir el ritmo que ya teníamos. 
¿Y cómo contacto con las teachers? Podéis dejar un comentario en la entrada correspondiente o enviar un correo a ingles@feijoozorelle.com
Entendemos las limitaciones que puede haber, pero nos gustaría que nos enviaseis las respuestas a las actividades que os proponemos al correo del departamento (ingles@feijoozorelle.com). Es importante que en el asunto especifiquéis el grupo en el que estáis.
Los alumnos de bachillerato recibirán un correo electrónico los días que tienen clase de inglés con actividades que incluirán listening, reading, writing y ejercicios de gramática y vocabulario. En el correo serán informados de los plazos para realizar y entregar esas tareas.
¡Mucho ánimo!

What about watching the video below to start? Click on the image to find out more.


Remembrance Day is on 11 November and is also known as Armistice Day. It marks the day World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, back in 1918.


Nowadays, people remember those who were lost in the war by holding a two-minute silence and by wearing a red poppy. But, why poppies?

Poppies are used to remember those who have given their lives in battle because they are the flowers which grew on the battlefields after World War One ended as described in the World War One poem In Flanders Fields. Follow Charlie Brown and Snoopy in their journey of discovery.



Traditionally, people have always worn red poopies to remember the dead on war conflicts. However, nowadys poppies can be of different colours.

REMEMBER, REMEMBER THE FIFTH OF NOVEMBER...

Remember, remember, the Fifth of November

Gunpowder treason and plot
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot

This is the stanza mnay people in the Uk recite every 5th of November. Do you want to know why? Keep reading to find out!

On 5 November, people across the UK celebrate Bonfire Night with fireworks, bonfires, sparklers and toffee apples  because it's the anniversary of an attempt to blow up the Houses of Parliament, known as The Gundpowder plot.


What was the Gunpowder Plot?
Guy (Guido) Fawkes was part of the Gunpowder plot in 1605. He wanted to blow up King James I and his government.

This was because of religion. England was a Protestant country and the plotters were Catholic. They wanted England to be Catholic again, which they thought they could do if they killed King James I and his ministers.

So, Fawkes and his group put 36 barrels of gunpowder in cellars underneath the Houses of Parliament in London, ready to set off a massive explosion.
However, one member of Fawkes' group sent a letter to his friend who worked in Parliament, warning him to stay away on 5 November. The King's supporters got hold of the letter and the plot was rumbled!
Guards broke into the cellars where the gunpowder plotters were waiting. They were arrested and executed.

Have a look at the video below to get a full picture of thsi British celebration.
