Music to listen to, sing in company or alone while tidying your bedroom at Christmas!!

Hi there, here you have a collection of some songs we've been listening to this week...I remind you to prepare your speaking for next Monday and don't forget the project at home!

I just love this one...

Fito, a poet or a musician?

We also have good rock singers in Spain!!!!Well a mixture of styles. I suggest that you go to a concert of his if you like the group. Awesome!

maybe the name of the group is familiar to you. You may know some songs...check the ones below...

I admire this guy, Fito Cabrales. Loak at how quick he can play the guitar!

I was reading the paper when I found this amazing piece of news. Bento is a type of Japanese food to take away, similar to a packed lunch. Have a look at the video if interested (here). It's hard to believe Japanese mums spend nearly 2 hours per day in creating these edible pieces of art. The harder thing is they attend lessons!!

Could you eat the poor goose so beautifully painted? I think I could, not so sure about the "blue" rice,though!

A tribute to the best singer ever. My idol!

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!!

Continue the story...

Task: Continue the following story.

It is dark outside and you are alone in an old house. On the wall there is a picture of a strange man with eyes that are alive and watching you. There is a room in this old house which makes you cold when you enter it, cold all the way down your back. And this is the room where, long ago, somebody died- very suddenly.

I have typed here the best story two girls from 3º of ESO wrote.

I entered in a bedroom, but something strange happened. The door closed. It was dark, so I looked for my torch. I was scared and I tried to go out, but I couldn't. I heard a scary laugh. I started to shout and someone said, " Silence, please. I want to tell you something". I couldn't believe it, I was really surprised. I heard again the mystery voice. It wass a man and he wanted revenge, because he has been killed.

He told me he was rich. He lived in a big house and he had all he always wished for but he didn't find love. One day, he met a pretty girl and they fell in love. Later, they got maried. He was reading in their bedroom, and his wife gave him some wine. When he was drinking the wine, his wife told him the drink was poisonous and told him she wanted him for his money. Then, he died while the murderer was laughing.

I listened to the story and I thought I should help him. I asked him, "How can I help you?", but nobody answered. I looked for him in the room, but he wasn't there any more. The door opened again and I went out. I returnedd to the hall, and I looked at the picture. The man had disappeared, but there was a dead woman instead. Behind her there was a man laughing because he finally revenged his death.

Almudena H. and Ana N.

Pretty good stuff, girls! Sorry for the delay.
