It’s an unusual date and I told the class that in UK this is the day when traditionally the ladies can ask the gentleman to marry them. This bothered a couple of the boys but they were relieved to hear they don’t have to say, “yes.”!
We started drawing the human body in movement. Getting the proprtions right has proved to be harder than expected but great improvements have been made – legs have grown longer!!.
La pel•lícula catalana Pa negre ens va sorprendre fa uns dies quan va ser seleccionada per al premi a la millor pel•lícula de parla no anglesa de l’Acadèmia de Cinema de Hollywood. La pel•lícula, dirigida per Agustí Villaronga, ha guanyat nou premis Goya, incloent el de millor pel•lícula i el del millor director. Tot i que finalment no ha estat seleccionada, val la pena veure-la per conèixer la realitat històrica de la postguerra espanyola. Si el passat divendres no vau poder veure-la per TV3, la mateixa emisora ens permet tornar-ne a gaudir-ne. Mireu-la en aquest link. Per un temps limitat. Espero que us agradi!
In Year 3 we have been learning all about the famous Pharaoh King Tutankhamen. We have found out lots of information and learned all about how his tomb was found and all of the things buried in there. We have learned about the different parts of the tomb and how hi body was prepared for the afterlife. Part of this process was to make a death mask for the mummy to wear. We then made masks of King Tutankhamen. Look at the these wonderful children.
