3.en.5. actors and actresses, food and poems: Andrea, Jilin and Daryl

Dear Students,

Yesterday your class mates, Andrea, Xilin, and Daryl did a great job. They acted as real professional actors in the Poetry Celebration that took place at El Gran Hotel. You remember the poetry workshop, don’t you?

On Monday we’ll go on an outing to El Olivar. The outing is part of our class project this term. FOOD AND EATING HABITS.

We hope you’ll learn a lot of new things, and we expect you’ll  find out information about food, shopping habits, local traditions and shops.

We’ve chosen a poem by Enric Casasses to link poetry and food.

…. I el paradís, un bon plat

de verdura.

Enjoy!

al pot petit hi ha poca

confitura

i al cor trancat la veritat

més dura:

mal amagat és mal que

no té cura,

la llibertat, la llei qu és

més segura,

la veritat, bandera que

no es jura,

i el paradís, un bon plat

de verdura.

Enric Casasses

On behalf of the Ramon Llull and 1st Year ESO E, and part of the enthusiastic audience, Bernat, Claudia, Judit, Àngel, Sara , Pepe and María.

3.en.4. Too many cooks spoil the broth?.. not really

Some times real life shows us that idioms are not always true.

Rául and Molly, on behalf of the English Department are cooking a delicious “paella” for Alberto Leal’s 1st Year Batxillerat students.

Take note! you must work on a recipe for our outing on Monday, so a paella might be a good idea.

3.es.7. El hiyab de Najwa

La madre de Najwa Malha, la alumna a quién no se permite asistir a clase con un panyuelo islamico, ha pedido la baja de su hija por escrito en el centro, informaron fuentes de la Consejeria de Educación. Najwa cambiará de instituto.
Las fuentes precisaron que el paso sigüiente que debe seguir la família de la adolescente es solicitar la incorporación de Najwa a un nuevo centro que admita el uso de ésta prenda de cabeza.
La Consejeria de Educación ayudará en lo posible a facilitar que Najwa pueda aceder al centro escolar que prefiera, ya sea dentro del pueblo dónde vive o en otro municipio, agregaron las fuentes.
La notícia de la intención de buscar un nuevo centro para la joven se produce el mismo dia en que Najwa regresaba a su instituto con el pañuelo cubierto por la capucha de su cazadora, en un dia en el que su clase salia de excursion.

En tu cuaderno:
1. Copia el texto de arriba subrayando las palabras que hayas corregido por contener algún error ortográfico
2. Busca información en Internet y resume en dos líneas la polémica en torno al velo de esta alumna.
3. Este incidente tiene relación con el debate que hemos desarrollado en otras ocasiones sobre libertad individual y tradición. También repasamos el significado de palabras como laico o civil. Expresa tu opinión sobre el derecho a que las niñas musulmanas puedan usar velo en escuelas europeas que lo prohíben.

Comentaremos y corregiremos este ejercicio el jueves día 29

2. Cardiovascular es una palabra compuesta. Escribe dos palabras que contengan el término (también griego) cardio
3. Hemos comentado en clase que nuestra cultura (sobre todo el idioma) deriva en gran parte de la antiguos romanos. ¿Por qué sin embargo tanto vocabulario científico está basado en el de los antiguos griegos?

3.ca.4 EL MERCAT DE L’OLIVAR

El proper dilluns, dia 3 de maig, anirem a visitar el mercat de l’Olivar, el més gran de Palma. Pel camí veurem altres llocs dedicats a restauració o a transaccions comercials amb elements alimentaris, com algunes botigues de productes típics mallorquins.
L’edifici del mercat de l’Olivar, situat a la plaça del mateix nom, va ser dissenyat per l’arquitecte Gaspar Bennàssar, el mateix que va fer el col·legi Jaume I, la plaça de toros o l’edifici de Zara, al passeig del Born. Però no l’acabà ell, sinó que finalitzà el mercat l’arquitecte Gabriel Alomar, el mateix que dissenyà l’avinguda de Jaume III.
L’edifici s’inaugurà el 1951 i va ser reformat el 1977 i el 1984. El soterrani, que ara serveix d’aparcament, antigament era el magatzem i hi havia una fàbrica de gel i les cambres frigorífiques.
La façana principal té unes escales de pedra calcària i uns arcs de mig punt. Hi ha l’escultura, obra de Tomàs Vila, dedicada al pagès mallorquí, que abans estava situada al final del Carrer Aragó, devora on ara hi ha el Corte Inglés de les avingudes.
El mercat de l’Olivar té una oficina d’informació al consumidor, una biblioteca, serveis administratius i sanitaris, un restaurant i cinc bars. Les parades estan dividides en carnisseria, xarcuteria i salaons, fruites i verdures i peixateria.
A veure si hi tornau anar a comprar alguna cosa. Bon profit.

3.en.3. Books, libraries, librarians and readaholics. Homework: 3 posts for Friday 30th April

Dear Students,

Most of you have already discovered that the Internet is like a world wide library where you can, among other things,  look for information and  read. In our blog we have used the Internet to encourage  you to read and to help you discover the pleasure of reading.  Today we celebrated St Jordi’s Day which also happens to be Book Day. My first post to the blog this term was a vindication of  the ” BOOK” as the ultimate technological gadget, don’t you remember?

Maybe in the future we’ll have electronic books, instead of paper ones, but, in fact, what really matters is that whether the  “wrapping” is  hard cover, paperback or e-book, the content will be made from the same ingredients.  We are talking about food this term, right? So what do you think the ingredients of a book are?  (1) Post a comment  to the blog with your answers.

You go to the Ramon Llull library when you want to borrow a book. Carmen, the librarian, who is also an English teacher, is always there to help you and to lend you books. In the library, there are also computers that expand the idea of “library”  beyond the walls of our school.  All over the world, libraries have incorporated computers and internet access to their  facilities. However, the atmosphere of a library is essential;  a place where you can go to read, to study, and to enjoy. So libraries need to be peaceful, quiet, organized  and attractive.

Today’s display of students’s works and of old books organized by Carmen, as well as the prices given by the different language departments transformed our School Library into a nice meeting place for all the students and teachers who enjoy reading and who love books.

Congratulations to everyone!

First of all thanks to Carmen, our excellent and enthusiastic librarian. In this photo you can see her with Lovepreet, from 1st ESO E, her assistant  during breaks and  absolute winner of the readaholic award this year.

Whenever you see Lovepreet, you’ll find her eagerly devouring books. This picture was taken in the vintage train on our  class outing to Soller.

Congratulations to the students  from 1st ESO A,B, C and D,Jonás, Bárbara, who did such a great job explaining the contents of the works displayed: posters, photo philosophy, illustrated poems, old books and mobile library.  They were really professional !

Here you can see Carmen and Lovepreet surrounded  by some very nice libraries. One of them, you’ll surely recognize. We visited it this year thank’s to Angel’s mother, Maria Vallespir, during our class outing to the historic center  of Palma. It is in a private palace,   Can Vivot, don’t you remember? At the top left, you can see the beautiful Gunnar Asplund Stockholm library, I was there last Easter and it is a fantastic place. I’ve also included a photo of  New York Public Library, which you might have seen in some movies.

Can you contribute to the blog with a library you like, or a famous one you’ve heard of? (2)Post your contributions to the blog.

Last but not the least, Thanks to the students from 4th ESO B. Visit Ramon Lull web page and you’ll see that they are also book fans. The were a great jury and are responsible for the display of the Poster Book Reviews. You can see them posing behind the winners: Pilar, Aina, Lukas, Jilin, Guiem, Marta and Lovepreet.  Andrea and Judith are not in the photo but they also deserve an applause for their good work.

Finally, thanks to Ana Blesa who was responsible for the poster and the pretty St Jordi’s badges.  Her students’work transformed the library into a colorful place.

Works will be displayed next week. (3) Your third task will consist on a visit to the library. Choose one of the art works displayed (illustrations of poems, photo philosophy) and post your choice to the blog. You need to explain what the photo and its caption and the poem and its illustration are  about .

See you on Monday. Remember that you must post your comments to the blog (Homework/tasks 1,2 and 3). Deadline, Friday 30th April, I will not accept any excuses. Well if you tell me that you were absorbed reading a good book, I might forget about posts, provided you tell me what the book was about. Just kidding! you know me, don’t you?

Have a good weekend!

3.en 2. Food for thought: we are what we eat.

IDIOMS WITH FOOD

Are you ready to talk about food?

Remember that we still have to do the group power point presentations about how much an average family spends a week in food. Only one group did it so far, but we’ll wait until the Danish and Icelanders come to visit us at the end of May. The volcano did not let them fly south. When they visit our class, we’ll ask them questions and show them the research we did. So while we wait for them, we’ll continue our hands on research on food and eating habits.

You’ve already watched Superzize Me, with Emili and you’ve also learnt how important it is  having a good breakfast every morning.

Bernat made things easier for you, didn’t he?

Did you enjoy your breakfast at the school cafeteria on St Jordi’s day?

Anyway,  the way you eat and your eating habits is really “FOOD FOR THOUGHT”

FOOD FOR THOUGHT”, is an idiom that means that something  is worth thinking about or considering seriously. WE ARE WHAT WE EAT, is an idiomatic expression too.

In English, there are many idiomatic expressions connected with food. The translation of many of these idiomatic expressions is not always easy.

Let’s see if we learn a few and have fun while using them. Check if you know the meaning of the following words:

NUTS, BANANAS, APPLES, BROTH, CHEESE, PEAS, RECIPE,POTATOE, CUCUMBER, EGGS.


Most probably you know all of them, don’t you? But I bet you do not know the meaning of the following expressions:

What?s the difference between a couch potatoe and a hot potatoe?


Visit the following site and find out. http://www.usingenglish.com/reference/idioms/cat/1.html

Copy the expressions in your notebook and their corresponding meaning. Try to visualise the idiom as an image, it really helps.
