Dear students,

I'll write in Spanish ( againts my will) because it seems very difficult for some of you to understand basics ( even in your mother tongue).

Valoración de Proyecto Integrado ( 1ª EVA). Os voy a comentar algunos problemas que me estoy encontrando.

1) No me entregáis a tiempo los proyectos. Siempre os falta algo o no lo sabíais. Prestad atención en clase! Encima la información está siempre a vuestro alcance en el blog,siempre que os acordéis o sepáis la dirección, claro.

Quiero que sepáis lo lioso que es no entregar las cosas a tiempo. Hoy me lo mandáis por correo, mañana me lo grabáis en pen, pasado en el ordenador de informática. Hay que saber aprovechar más el tiempo y no perderlo organizando los files!

2) Me grabáis en el ordenador de Informática algunos informes y listas de vocabulario ( que encima de que os dejo más tiempo, están incompletas- algunas no llegan al mínimo- 20 palabrillas) que NO TIENEN NOMBRE ALGUNO. NO quiero pasar toda la tarde leyendo con detenimiento los más de 20 proyectos de Ciencias y Letras buscando algunas pistas que me indiquen a quiénes pertenecen dichos documentos. A unas malas si estuviera escrito a mano, podría deducir o comparar con el examen inicial.ESCRIBID SIEMPRE VUESTRO NOMBRE.

3) Chic@s estáis en Bachillerato y se supone que el año próximo en la Universidad. Mi consejo es que estéis más ATENTOS y os pido que seáis más RESPONSABLES.

Thanks for reading


P.S Feel free if you want to comment something. Bye!

John Winston Lennon was born on October 9, 1940 ( during WWII).

Little John with his uncle George.
John with his auntie Mimi, who took care of him on his childhood.
John's father, Freddie Lennon, wasn't a very good dad. Their parents got divorced when he was 5. His dad didn't want to know anything about John till he became rich and famous. What a cheek!

You can see John and his mother Julia, who taught him how to play the banjo and ukelele. Unfortunately, she was killed by a car driven by a drunk off-duty policeman.
The Quarrymen, John's first band. He was aged 15 when he met Paul McCartney...and the story begins right here...
Gorgeous Cynthia Powell, John's first wife. At the beginning of their career, The Beatles didn't want people to know he was married. Young girls were crazy about them...

He married his second wife, Yoko Ono, on 19th, March, 1969, in Gibraltar. For some people she was responsible for The Beatles' break-up.Julian Lennon and Sean Lennon. You can tell which one is Yoko's and who's Cynthia's.

John having a lollipop while resting from shooting "How I Won the War", a film made in Almería.

He also wrote 2 books.
He was very creative, he tried drawing as well.

During the Vietnam War, they spent 2 weeks in bed asking for peace. One in Montreal and another one in Amsterdam.

Mark David Chapman assassinated John on December 8, 1980 outside The Dakota Building, where Lennon lived with his wife, Yoko Ono. Mad Mark asked him for an autograph and while taking a picture of them he said , " This picture will be historic!". Later that night, he went back to the building and waited for John to arrive. When he saw Lennon he asked: "Mr. Lennon?". Then, he aimed 5 shots at him and , unfortunately, 4 of them hit him in the back.

He claimed he had heard a voice encouraging him to kill this great singer..

R.I.P. Mr. Lennon!!

Hi there,

Movember is a month-long event celebrated every year around the world. Instead of running or walking to raise some money, men grow
moustaches. Movember Foundation charity raise funds for men's health issues ( for example, prostate cancer or depression).

There is a kind of competition, I'll write some rules:

1) You must begin Nov 1st with a clean shaven face.
2) Your mo mustn´t join or touch your sideburns ( patillas) because it would be considered a beard.
Let me introduce you to a friend of mine who is growing his own mo. ( Some of you might have seen him in Broadstairs). We'll see at the end of the month how big it can get!
By the way, for those who love music, click on the picture below.

A prayer for our late Sister Mª Dolores, who died unexpectedly last Thursday. I didn´t have the pleasure to meet her, but I´ve been told she was a mainstain inside this Order. I beg you say this little prayer for her.

Eternal Rest

Eternal rest grant unto her,
O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon her.
May the soul of the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God,
rest in peace.

En esta 2ª evaluación vamos a trabajar sobre Baena. Al margen del blog he puesto los distintos grupos con toda la información necesaria para desarrollar este nuevo proyecto. La temática es diversa: iglesias, La Almedina, Torreparedones, la Semana Santa, el Aceite...Los grupos se sortearán mañana en clase. Si entre vosotros estáis de acuerdo en cambiar el que os ha tocado con otro, estupendo.

Me gustaría hacer una ruta turística con vosotros siendo guías de turismo. Quizá lo dejemos para el 3er trimestre, que es muy corto. Ya os lo iré diciendo.

El proyecto tiene que estar escrito en inglés. En los documentos adjuntos os he facilitado algunos páginas donde encontrar la información que os pido ( algunas ya vienen en vuestra segunda lengua).

By the way, I wish you all a Happy New Year.
