My future

By: Candela González, 1BTO B

When I was younger, I wanted to be a vet, a firewoman and a princess. But now, when someone asks me: “what would you like to study?” or “what job do you like?” I always answer that I want to study medicine.

I think I say that because my mother, my aunt and my cousin are a doctors and my grandfather was a doctor, but I really don’t know what I want to do.

I like helping people, I like investigation and, definitely, I like sciences… but on the other hand, I don’t know if I will be able to get so excellent marks. What’s more, there are many kinds of doctors.

I’m not really decided about what I’m going to study, but it doesn’t matter. I have time enough to decide and my marks will tell me!

Twilight

By: Julio Jimenez, 1BTO B

I´m going to talk about how I got fond of the Twilight saga.

Before the Twilight´s movie was released in the cinemas, my sister had bought the book but she had never read it. When the movie was released, my sister asked me to watch it so we did. Some days before, I asked her: Have you already read the book? She hadn´t done it, so I started having curiosity and I read the first chapter. That was the worst thing I could do, because when you read a Stephenie Meyer´s book you can´t stop. When I finished Twilight, I looked for New Moon and I read it in less than one week.

While I was reading these two books I decided to stop reading this saga because I think that they are girls' books. I couldn´t stop, so I looked for the way of reading Eclipse and Breaking Dawn, then some chapter of Midnight Sun.

Now, after this time, I have read three times the complete saga.


Internet

By: Raquel Martinez, 1BTO B
I'm going to talk about Internet:
Internet has changed the world in the xx century. In my opinion Internet is very important for our lives because people can look for some information easily and they communicate with other people. Before Internet was invented, people communicated with the telephone and they looked for some information in books. On the other hand, books are safer and they are also funny. Everyday I use internet to chat with my friends, to listen to music, to look for information to do my homework, to download things and to play computer games. All in all, I think that Internet is the best invention because is very simple and funny and people communicate with other people quickly.

SAVE THE PLANET

By: Lucía Biensoba, 1BTO C

If you want to help to save the planet,there are many simple things we can do at home.

Firstly,you mustn't throw old newspapers away.Give them to a recycling company to make new paper.

Secondly, put empty bottles in a bottle bank to save glass.Furthermore ,you can recycle plastic bags that have already been used.

On the other hand,we must learn to save energy.For instance,we should take a shower instead of a bath and turn lights off when we are not using them.

As I see it,nowadays there are too many cars and factories in our towns,therefore,pollution is also an important problem we should try to solve.

In conclusion, I am sure we can all help to protect the environment and save the planet.We must be just a little more responsible and do these useful things.

Asturias

By: Pablo Sordo, 1BTO D

Asturias is a community in Spain. It’s in the north of this country and it has one million of residents. In Asturias there’re many mountains. It’s a very green place full of forests. The most common tree is oak. The weather in Asturias is cold all the year and it’s always raining.

People there love sidra. Sidra is a special drink of Asturias. People pour sidra, from the top of the head to the glass near the waist. Carbayon is a famous sweet of Asturias.

The most important cities in Asturias are Gijón and Oviedo. Gijón is a city near the see and it has a big port. Oviedo is a beautiful city and it is the capital, there’re a lot of big buildings. They look like palaces. These two cities are so different but both are wonderful.

RECOVERY

By: Agustín Álvarez, 1BTO D

Recovery is the new name of the seventh album of Eminem. In Spanish it means “recuperación”. At first it was going to be named Relapse 2 but then it was changed to Recovery. The album was released on 18th of June of 2010 by Interscope Records. The album has sold more than 5 million copies all over the world.

The album is quite different of his last albums, this album has emotional lyrics.

Some important singers like Rihanna, Kobe or Lil Wayne have collaborated in it.

The hits of the album are: Not Afraid, No love and Love the way you lie.

The songs that I like the most are: Space Bound, 25 to life and You´re never over, in this song he talks about how he feels after the death of his friend, Proof.

Cruise

By: Luis Benitez, 1BTO B

I´m going to tell you about our final school´s trip last year.

Last year, we went on a cruise around the Mediterranean.

We departed the 4th of April and we returned the 11th of April.

The trip cost seven hundred thirty five Euros. We visited Montecarlo, Florence, Rome, Napoli and Tunisia.

The cruise was incredible, it had a lot of things, for example, it had two swimming pools, where we had moments; gyms, discos, where we danced all night; karaoke and library, where we didn´t go.

In my opinion the best city was Rome because it had lots of monuments like the Coliseum, and Montecarlo because it was very rich city.

For me, the cruise was the best trip that I have done in my life.

Last week...

By: Mara Espinosa, 3ESO B
Last week I was on a boat.
I was with my family and my friends , we were fishing.
My friend, Marta, swam with my little cousin near the boat, and they caught a fish which was next to them.
It was a magnificent day.
Then we were eating in a forest and we saw two ducks on the floor.
At four o'clock we fell asleep.
At half past five we went to the beach and my father drove the car, and we were in my house at seven o'clock.
I would like to go to the beach again.

Life

By: Brenda Maldonado, 3ESO C
Well, I'm going to talk about the friends I had to leave behind. I had many but I'll only talk about a couple. Leaving them behind was a hard thing to do & I found it impossible at first but I did it. I still talk to them but it's not the same. Knowing I can't see them all the time is what gets to me. I used to be with them all the time, we'd hang out & just be ourselves. Things here aren't the same. The people here just want to have fun and don't care for much. They don't take things so seriously and don't think as much.
Briley was my best friend. She's adopted & from China. We have the same age, 14. My day would consiste of waking up and having a call from her. We would tell eachother just about everything. Things with her are just so easy and simple. We'd laugh about everything & anything. Her parents would think of me as another child of there own. At school we had different classes & it sucked but I'd still see her in the hallways & we had office together. I remember that she had just had a baby brother named Eli when I had to leave. It upset me knowing I wasn't going to be able to see him grow up.
Corey & Daniel were just like Chip & Dale. They would always make me laugh & have a good time. They would do stupid things yet you know you could trust them with anything. I remember they would come every morning to hang out with me and everyone. Katie and Frances were always there for me, they were both very calm. Gwen was the crazy one. They were all very different and special in their own way. I miss all of them so much & my life is not the same without them. One day I'll get to see them again, so I'll be fine for now.

MY FRIENDS!


By: Andrés Mora, 1BTO C
I think that my friends are the best friends of the world. I´m going to write about them.
In the first place, I´m going to write about Kiko, my best friend, the number one.
He´s a very good person because he always helped me, when I had a problem
He´s the best and I love HIM so much
In the second place, I´m going to write about Abrahama and Jesuliki.
They´re big persons because with them always everything is fun.
And in third, to finish, I´m going to write about Silvia and Cristina.
Silvia is my best friend (the girl) and Cristina is my girlfriend.
They are the best!

Skateboarding


by: Gonzalo Renedo, 3ESO B
Skateboarding is a very dangerous, the tricks are very difficult and I broke my ankle while I was skating. You can skate in the vert or in the street, I do both, but I do more street than vert. There are a lot of tricks and jumping with the skate is a trick, it's name is ollie. In some places the police ban us skating and we disclose, because skateboarding is not a crime. This sport is very tiring.

My First Impression of Bachiller

By: A student in 1BTO
I'm going to talk about my first impression of bachiller. When I arrived to school on 15st of September I didn't feel nervous as usually. LotS of new people came from other schools and they are all kind. I am very happy with my class but I have been separated of my old friends.
Most of my teachers are the same ones but I realise the level is going up every day and I try to study the best I can. The subjects that for me are more difficult are Economy, History and Language. The first Language exam is about four units and I am very afraid. I don't understand how teachers can say we must study every day, it is impossible for me! I have to do homework, I have to go to the academy and I don't have free time but I recognise that I could work harder...
Well, I'm always thinking in passing bachiller, it is my wish now.

Lady Gaga

By: Marina García, 1BTO A
I like so much Stefani Joane, she is an American pop singer, musical composer, pianist, dancer and eccentric clothes' designer. She is know as Lady Gaga.
Although it's strange, Lady Gaga studied at a Catholic school, and later, at a school of art at New York University Tisch, but in the second year of her studies, she left the school to start her musical career.
I like all of her songs because you can feel the music and listen TO IT everywhere in the radio, pubs, shopping centreS...
My favourite songs are the songs of the radio,for example: "Poker Face","Just Dance","Telephone"(Gaga sings with Beyoncé),"Bad Romance","Paparazzi" and her last single "Alejandro".
I love Lady Gaga because she is a different singer and her clothes are amazing.

Sport

By: Lucia Puget, 1BTO A
Many people think sport is good, but they don't really know all its positive effects. It prevents the obesity, you meet new friends, you organize your time better and its improves your state of mind. Many parents believe that their children spend too long time playing football, basketball, tennis... but they forget the experiences which their children live: they travel with their friends and they know new places, they learn to share and to be connected with other people. I like sport, and I practice basketball and it makes me feel good. When I have to study, I train and I clear my mind. In my opinion, every sport is good, but I recommend a team sport.

Advantages and disadvantages of doing sport


By: Javier Fernandez, 1BTO B
I’m going to talk about the advantages and disadvantages of doing sport. First of all, I think that doing sport is very positive and there aren’t any disadvantages. On the one hand, sport is good to prepare our body. If you do sport twice a week you can be very healthy. There are a lot of sports, and you can find your favorite. If you are very fast, you can do athletics, if you are strong, you can do rugby...

On the other hand, a person that practices a lot of sport can get hurt. In the majority of sports, you can break parts of your legs or arms. Another point is the number of dead people in sports. As time goes by there are more people who die doing sport however there are more people who are doing sport.

It seems to me that sport is the best way to be healthy and it is a good way to make friends and also meet people.

THE SIMPSONS


By: Pablo Herrera, 1BTO B

The Simpsons is an American animated television series created by Matt Groening. This series is about an American family that is formed by:

Homer (the father), works as a safety inspector at the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant. He is married to Marge Simpson a stereotypical American housewife and mother. They have three children: Lisa, Bart and Maggie.

Bart is a very bad boy and he doesn´t like school. He is always playing with a skate and a slingshot.

Lisa is a very good girl and student. She likes playing the saxophone and she is a young activist.

Maggie is the baby of the family; she is very funny because she has a pacifier in her mouth.

Snowball is the cat and Santa´s little helper is the dog.

In his free time Homer goes to Moe´s bar to drink Duff´s beer and he likes bowling with his friends Carl and Lenny.

Bart likes watching a TV animated series called ``Scratches and Bites´´. He behaves as a very bad boy but he is a really good boy.

Finally, I tell you that if you like laughing, you have to watch this series because it has also a hidden message.

JOB

By: Sara Vega, 1BTO C
The JOB is the young performer's orchestra of the bicentenary. It started in the summer of 2010 an it is consisted of young musicians of all province of Cádiz that were chosen by an aptitude test; they wanted a minimum level doing those tests.

I'm in this orchestra; it is conducted by the soloists of London and they are: Matthew Coman, David le Page, Simon Lewis, Jane Fenton and Leo Payne. We meet in Alcalá de los Gazules and it last five or seven days. We rehearse seven hours every day and the last day we do the concert. This christmas we will do a concert in Melilla. We will play typical plays of christmas.

In my opinion I think that it is a great oportunity for those young people that want to be great musicians, and although we must work too hard, we are in a fantastic environment and we enjoy ourselves!

In my opinion he is a great interviewer and I think that it´s a good hobby.
Victor good luck.

AUSCHWITZ


By: Joaquin de Ory, 1BTO D

Auschwitz are a group of concentration and extermination camps. They were built and operated in polish areas during the second world war.

This was the largest of the German concentration camps. It consists of Auschwitz I (base camp), Auschwitz II (extermination camp), Auschwitz III (labor camp).

They are situated on the west of Krakow.

Approximately, between 1,5 million an 2,5 million of persons were killed, in the mayority jews and gypsies.

At the entrance of Auschwitz I, we can see: “ Arbeit macht frei”, that means: “ Work makes us free”, which was the slogan.

For me, it is the saddest place I have ever been, because there you can see the glasses, bags, cosmetics…. of the jews and gypsies.

Asking Alexandria

By: Alain Noriega, 1BTO D
Asking Alexandria is a British band with 5 members. Their music style is ''post-hardcore''. It mixes ''electro'' and ''techno'' music with ''metalcore'' and ''deathcore'' music. This style is similar as the bands ''The Devil Wears Prada'' or ''Enter Shikari'' styles. The first album of Asking Alexanria was good, but the last album was the most succesful.
They have participated in a lot of international tours, and the next year they are coming to Spain! The 21st January they are playing in Barcelona, and 22nd January they are playing at ''Sala Live'' in Madrid, and I'm going to see them! I hope they could sign me in my t-shirt!
They said that a new album called ''Reckless and Relentless'' will be released at the end of 2010 - beginning 2011.
They have
only released one music video of the song ''The Final Episode [Let's Change The Channel]

El Puerto de Santa María


By: Marta Troncoso, 1BTO B
El Puerto de Santa María is a small city situated in the South of Spain, in Andalusia. It´s the place where I was born and where I live.
The weather is good during all the year. It has a medium temperature of about 25ºC.
I think that the best season is the summer, because El puerto is a coast area and we can go to the beach. About that, it´s an ideal place for the tourists, they can enjoy with the sun during the day and at night, there are a lot of bars with terraces where they can have good wines.
In El Puerto, there are interesting places to see, like the Castle of San Marcos, the bullring, the Prioral Church and some of the palace houses that remain from century XV, (American discovery).
Too, you can enjoy sailing in the bay in the "vaporcito".

FASHION VICTIMS


By: Lorena Ocaña, 1BTO C
In my opinion, your personal look is too important nowadays.
Everybody wishes to look like models, singers or actress who are usually very beautiful and slim.
On the one hand, young girls, stop eating some food or even take pills to lose weight quickly and they have problems in their lives.
On the other hand the clothes you find in shops are always very tight.
As I see it, designers don´t think of these people who can´t wear this kind of clothes and many young girls feel depressed when they try on small t-shirts or short skirts.
Finally you don´t have to worry about your physical appearance, although you should practise some sports and have healthier food in order to feel better.

30.11.10

DANCING

BY: PAULA DUQUE, 2BTO-A
There are a lot of kinds of dancing, but the one I like the most is ballet and ballroom dancing.
Ballet is a very beautiful and complicated dance. This needs a lot of skill and this is got when the dancers practice a lot. Music for this specific dancing is mostly classical. MOREOVER, ballet has got special clothes and the most representative of this are the ballet shoes.
Another kind of dancing is ballroom dancing which is danced in pairs. This kind of dancing allows you to socialise with many people. There are a lot of competitions in the world of ballroom dancing and the people who represent their countries are very good dancers. Spain has won many of these contests. There are two modalities which are called the "latinos" which have got more lively music, for example "salsa" that orIginated in Brazil and the "estandar" which has got romantic music, also for example the "tango" that originated in Argentina.
BAILES
Hay muchos tipos de bailes, pero los que más me gustan son el ballet y los bailes de salón.
El ballet es un baile muy bonito y complicado. Necesita mucha técnica y esto se obtiene cuando bailarines practican mucho. La música para este específico baile es la mayoría de las veces clásica. También, el ballet tiene ropa especial y lo más representativo son los zapatos de ballet. Otro tipo de baile son los bailes de salón que es bailado en pareja. Este tipo de baaile te permite socializarte con mucha gente. Hay muchas competiciones en el mundo de bailes de salón y las personas que representa a sus países son muy buenos bailarines. España ha ganado mucho de estos concursos. Hay dos modalidades que se llaman los "latinos" que tienen una música más movida, por ejemplo la "salsa" que se originó en Brasil y el "estandar" que tiene una música romántica, por ejemplo el "tango" que se originó en Argentina.

THE MISTERIOUS SPHINX IN EGYPT

BY: ELIANA CALA, 4ESO-C
Everybody has seen photograps of the sphinx in Egypt, but nobody really knows what the sphinx is, or what it represents. The wonderful sphinx has been watching the hot dry desert for thousands of years. Archeologist have been studying the pyramids, the tombs in the ValLey of the kings ,  for two hundred years, but the Valley has mantAined a lot of its secrets. People have discovered treasures, like those they have found in Tutankhamon´s tomb, but the misteRy of the sphinx remains.
Todo el mundo ha visto fotografias de la esfinje de egypto, pero nadie realmente sabe que es o que representa. La marvillosa esfinje ha estado mirando el calido y seco desierto durante miles de años. Los arqueologos han estado estudiando las piramides, las tumbas en el valle de los Reyes durante doscientos años, pero el valle ha mantenido muchos secretos. Las personas han descubierto tesoros, de esta manera ellos han encontrado la tumba de tutankhamon, pero el misterio de la esfinje permanece.

MY SUMMER HOLIDAYS

BY: CRISTINA FERNANDEZ, 2BTO-C
This Summer has been very funny.
After the end of school, I went to Málaga to a work camp for fifteen days. It WAS a rich and unique experience, and I met a lot of people. I learnt a lot.
IN the end of July, I went to the beach every day. Some mornings I went to the swimming-pool with my best friend and in the evenings we both worked looking after children.
In August, I went to Portugal. It is very beautiful. I went with my family and my friend and we had a very good time: We visited monuments and went to the beach.
At the end of August was my sister´s birthday. We went to the swimming-pool. In the evening, she celebrated a party with her friends. I WENT to a lot of parties this Summer too.
I WAS in Sevilla visiting my family.
In September, before the school began, I visited a friend in Madrid. I took a lot of photos.
The nineteenth was my best friend´s birthday. We organized a surprise party for her, and it was cool! She really loved it.
At the end ,  my holydays finished and school began!

BY: MACARENA HEREDIA, 2BTO-A
Alicia Keys was born in Manhattan, New York, ON January 25, 1981. She is a singer of soul and Rhythm and Blues, composer of the majority of her own songs and of other singers. She is considered to be the queen of the Rhythm and Blues. At the age of 7 ,  her parents enrolled her at classes of piano to remove her from the bad life and drugs that was surrounding in her neighborhood and there, she discovered her great talent that made her famous. She has NUMEROUS PRIZES, as for example 13 Grammys or 3 American Music Awards, AMONG others. She was a great student, in spite of the fact that her career began quite early.
Alicia Keys is one of my favorite singers, and I love each and every of her songs, some of them are Fallin, No one, and especially, New York falling down, one of the songs of her last disc,  in which she describes the town where she grew up. Her songs usually treat different topics, but many of them are romantic or TELL about happiness.
She and her music are amazing.
Alicia Keys, nació en Manhattan, Nueva York, el 25 de enero de 1981. Ella es una cantante de soul y Rhythm and Blues, compositora de  la mayoría sus propias canciones y de otros cantantes. Es considerada la reina del Rhythm and Blues. A los 7 años sus padres la inscribieron a clases de piano para alejarla de la mala vida y de las drogas que le rodeaba en su barrio y allí descubrió su gran talento, el cual le hizo famosa. Tiene en su poder numerosos premios, como por ejemplo 13 Grammys o 3 American Music Awards, entre tantos. Fue una gran estudiante, a pesar de que su carrera comenzó bastante temprano.
Alicia Keys es una de mis cantantes favoritas, me encantan todas y cada una de sus canciones, algunas de ellas son, Fallin, No one, y en especial, New York fallin down, una de las canciones que aparece en su último disco, en la cual describe la cuidad donde se crió. Sus canciones en general tratan de temas diferentes, pero muchas de ellas son románticas  o hablan de la felicidad. Ella y su música son increíbles.

MICHAEL JACKSON

BY: FERNANDO CALERO, 2BTO-C
Michael jackson was an artist known all over the world. He started singing when he was only four years old with his brothers, The Jackson Five, in the 70's. They had a great succes until he began his solo career in 1979 with his debut album "Off the Wall".
In 1982 "Thriller", his most known album, came out. Thriller had a videoclip in which he dances with zombies and it was considered the best videoclip of all times.
In 1987 "Bad" is released, it wasn't as succesful as Thriller, but it still was on the top of music records, and he went on the "Bad Tour".
He recorded more albums but eventually, his personal life became more important than his career, since he was blamed for molesting kids and "changing" his skin colour because of a skin disease.
Recently, after his death, the man who was molested when he was a child, confessed that his father forced him to lie so that they got money.
He's my favourite singer and I'm also a great fan of his dances. My favourite song is "Ben" from when he was in The Jackson Five, and I really enjoy moves like the "moonwalk" or the "airwalk".

WHY WOULD I LIKE TO TRAVEL AROUND THE WORLD?

BY: LUIS CABALLERO, 2BTO-D
One of my biggest dreams is to travel all around the world. But, like most of people who have ever thought about it, I haven´t carried out it yet.
I really would like to travel around the world because I love to travel. I do not care where, but I will go to any journey that let me visit other countries, meet different people, taste new kinds of food, etc. Finally, I would like to know more about the different cultures that I could meet if I ever travel around the world.
But in case I finally decide to do it, I have to face a problem: I am not millionaire. I have to look for a way to finance an activity like this. I could try to study abroad to get a job in an international company or to persuade my parents about this journey is a good idea. But I do not think it will work, so if you are a millionaire and you have planned to go abroad, be sure that I will be ready to share that experience with you.

THE STROKES

BY: JOSE PABLO CONTRERAS, 2BTO-C
The strokes IS an American rock band from New York City formed in 1998. They became famous in the 2000s. The band is formed by Julian Casablanca (vocal), Nick Valensi (guitar), Albert Hammond (guitar), Nikolai Fraiture (bass guitar) and Frabrizio Moretti (drums and percussion).
It’s said they are the band who saved rock and roll after 90s. That’s because rock between 80s and 90s became so bad. Then, they came out with their new style of rock, called indie rock or new wave. This style is an evolution of 70s punk rock.
In my opinion, they are an essential group of nowadayS’ indie rock. The most of new indie bands tried to be like them. They have performed in festivals such as Glastonbury with bands such as Arctic Monkeys and Franz Ferdinand.
Well, to sum up, The Strokes is a great band everyone should listen to at least one.

THANKSGIVING DAY

Thanksgiving Day is a harvest festival celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada. Thanksgiving was a holiday to express thankfulness, gratitude, and appreciation to God, family and friends for which all have been blessed of material possessions and relationships. Traditionally, it has been a time to give thanks for a bountiful harvest. This holiday has since moved away from its religious roots.
In the United States, Thanksgiving Day falls on the fourth Thursday of November. In Canada it is celebrated on the second Monday in October.
The precise historical origin of the holiday is disputed. Although Americans commonly believe that the first Thanksgiving happened in 1621, at Plymouth Plantation, in Massachusetts, there is strong evidence for earlier celebrations in Canada (1578) and by Spanish explorers in Florida (1565).
Thanksgiving Day is also celebrated in Leiden, in the Netherlands. A different holiday which uses the same name is celebrated at a similar time of year in the island of Grenada.
