Orange Juice Poem

Our writing and oral teacher, Daniela, told us to read the poem Orange Juice and write our own poem from the point of view of the thief. I did it with Martín.

We used to steal in London city,

until we got caught by the police.

We thought that ir would be easy,

tough it was quite a pity

 

Me and my dog had to leave,

and we found a new city,

Guernsey city,

which is very pretty.

 

Every house had a pint of milk,

and a carton of orange juice delivered.

So I had an idea,

I would send my dog to steal the milk from one house,

and I would nick the milk from another house.

We stole the milk and juice twice,

and the third time we got a spicy one.

 

When I had a gulp of the juice,

kaboom,

my mouth burnt.

 

So I instantly went to the park and,

splash!

My body splashed to the water.

 

Luckily my dog didn´t drink from that horrible juice,

I will never steal from that house again.

Who is my favourite booktuber?

Our oral teacher, Dani, gave us an assignment. This the assignment of commenting on booktubers. My own booktube will be published towards mid-May.

This are my top 3 booktube:

Number 1:

I really liked this booktube because he acted as the writers and he said exactly what goes threw writers minds, especially the killing of the favourite characters. The irony he uses has a good effect on the one who is watching, as it makes you laugh. And let’s face it, everyone’s favourite character always dies.

Number 2:

I enjoyed watching this booktube mainly because of the flow it’s got. I enjoyed how she relates music and literature, as music is everyone’s weakness. The fact that she is uses music, makes it interesting. Also they way she did it was original, and it is shown how much effort she put into it. Also the lyrics is sticky.

Number 3:

I really liked from this booktube how he relates the hunger games to our lifestyle, because, we, as readers, don’t normally do, so having that point of view really makes you think. I also like how the booktube was fast, because most of my booktubes last years were slow, just a narration of the book, me speaking to a camera, but this one was fast and the way he edited the video, gave it that feeling to.

Name crossword

Today, 2nd of march we met our teacher of oral and writting, Daniela. In order to introduce ourselves we played a game: Name Crossword. The game is a good way to learn each others name and get to know each other.The game consited of writting your name in the whiteboard and saying something that we liked, then someone who had the same likes would pass and say something different about them. For example, if someone said they like training hockey, somebody that liked training football would come next as they had something in common. The game was fun as it was a non traditional way to learn from each other. We would normally raise our hands and say something about us. But in this game you would only talk if you had something in common with the previous person.

I said I liked playing basketball, and I play since I am five I came right after Martin who said he liked sleeping.

With this game I got to know a little bit more of two people who started this year, Otto and Elena. Otto likes playing rugby and watching netflix and Elena likes drawing portraits. Also I learned that Daniela likes dancing.

I feel the game was a success as we got to learn from each other and in a fun way.

Tsunami reports.

With Pilar, our writing teacher, we saw a fragment of the movie “The Impossible”, after watching this she gave us an assignment. We had to a news report in which we act as reporters writing a report on the Tsunami. In the second writing we had to write a diary entry or  a blog entry in which we tell our story as survivors of the tsunami.

News report.

Devastating Tsunami hits Thailand.

Tsunami destroys Phuket, south Thailand, as a consequence of Indian Ocean earthquake in the 26th of December. Many deaths, injured and missing.

Thailand was affected by the Indian Ocean earthquake. This tsunami hit Thailand as an effect of the earthquake in the Indian Ocean.

There were over 5.000 deaths in Thailand and most of them were in the region of Phang Nga. Many tourists were at that moment because of the holidays and this is one of the causes of why there were so many deaths. In Phang Nga there were more foreign deaths than national deaths. Also Krabi & Phuket had over 100 foreign deaths. As regards injured people, there were over 2.000 foreigners injured and more than 5.000 Thais hurt. Many houses, shops and hotels. People near the coast did not have a chance to survive.

Hotel managers and shop managers say that they will open again as soon as possible, as they until they do open again, they will be losing money. Many people will be living in the streets, up till they get a new home, money and help.

Diary entry.

I have just survived a tsunami.

I went for the December holidays to Thailand. We reached in the 24th of December; we spent Christmas Eve in the hotel as we were just looking for a relaxing and cosy night. We slept already late but not enough for the kids to wake me and my wife at 9am, they wanted to open the presents. Christmas day was beautiful; we had breakfast, went to the beach and lay in the sand. It was night again and we went to bed again. We woke up early again, because of the kids; we showered, got dressed and went to have breakfast. We had breakfast as every other day. But something was going to change. This time instead of going to the beach, we decided to have a lazy day and stay back in the hotel room doing a movie marathon. We watched several movies before everything changed. We were watching “Back to the Future Three”, when we saw from the window, from the distance everything coming down as something of cutting it from the bottom. But as time was passing by, we were in front of a gigantic and dirty wave. I thought that was the end, I was going to die so I hug my kids, took a deep breath and waited for the worst. But when I felt I was hit by the wave I prayed for the best. But in about ten minutes, the worst was over and I was alive, but I couldn’t see my kids. I felt I rather be killed if I didn’t have my kids and wife.  But then I heard a voice begging for help. I wanted to help, so I did my best to swim to the voice and help. When I found the kid I helped him to get rid of everything that was wrapping him and us swimmer to safety. When we were in firm land we found his mother, with a smile in her face, and that is when I realized me there many ways of being happy, and my mine was to help people be happy. Until someone came to help us, I was helping everyone I could to get to the hospital. When someone got there to help us, I went to a hospital. Now I am at the hospital waiting to get my surgery.
