I hope you are having a nice weekend. Well, last Friday the confusion with the school name, Son Anglada turned out to be Anselm Turmeda, ended up well, didn’t it?
I was really impressed by the orchard and the school. What about you?
The English task can be carried out as planned. You only need to answer the questions about the Anselm Turmeda. The preparatory task, which was to visit Son Anglada web page and take notes, you must keep it in your notebook. It was homework you had to do before the visit, so we’ll look at it and compare the two schools. We saw Anselm Turmeda in real life, Son Anglada we passed by it and we visited its web page.
Andrea sent me very nice pics and a couple of videos from the outing. Here you can see a selection while we wait to make a slide show.
HOMEWORK: Tuesday 16th
- Remember that apart form the questionnaire that you had to complete after the outing, I added a new task while we were at the Anselm Turmeda computer room.
- You have to make a list of the gardening tools you think are essential to keep an orchard. Look them up in a dictionary, check the pronunciation and write the translation in Catalan and Spanish.
You are already familiar with these two dictionaries.
a bilingual one: http://www.wordreference.com/es/
a monolingual: http://dictionary.reference.com/
Now, in order to help you with your task, you can check Merriam Webster visual dictionary on line. This dictionary includes pictures and there is a section on gardening tools that might be very helpful. You can also listen to the way the words are pronounced.
I have chosen an example for you.
Finally, if you want to keep your plant healthy, you might want to check information about “cintes” in this site
|Description:||Rosettes of long leaves, usually with white longitudinal stripes, produce hanging stems of small white flowers followed by plantlets that root even as they hang from the parent.|
- Where are ribbon plants originally from?
- How much water do they need?
- Can they be kept outside and inside?
All this information can be found in the site.
Post your comments on the outing to the blog before Tuesday.
