Francisco de Goya

Do you remember when we went to the Prado Museum and saw several paintings by Goya? Well, here are some videos explaining his life briefly. In the second term you're going to do a project about Goya, so this will help you to get some background information. Don't worry if you can't understand everything the narrator says, he speaks very quickly!

And here is an analysis of Goya's famous 3 de mayo masterpiece. It may be a little complicated for you to follow, but if you are patient and watch it you will find out lots of interesting facts about this painting.

Napoleon in Spain

The next topic we're going to be looking at is History so here is a video about Napoleon when he entered Spain to pass through to Portugal. Look at the History page too to learn more before you come back to school:

Armistice Day is on 11th November and is also known as Remembrance Day. The red poppy is a symbol to remember all the people who died in the First World War and many people in Britain wear a poppy on this day. Here is a video about what happened last year at the Tower of London (probably my favourite London monument) when it was decorated with more than 888,000 red poppies - one for each person who died during the war. It was celebrated at 11am on the 11th of November 2014 because it was the 100 year anniversary of the end of the First World War. If you would like to know more about the conditions the soldiers fought in you could read some of the poems by war poets like Rupert Brooke or Wilfred Owen. Go to the end of the history page to see their poems.

'Little Drummer Boy' for 6C

Hi 6C! Here is a video you can watch to get ideas for dance steps for the Christmas festival. Remember we have to keep it as simple as possible, and if there is anyone who would like to do some gymnastics or special dance on stage then tell me so we can fit it in with the music.

Paignton, South Devon

This very short film is about my Mum's home town where I spent many happy holidays there with my grandparents, uncles and aunts, and cousins. See how different the coastline is to Spain - it's true what the presenter says, that the land is red and very flat with a few cliffs. Devon is a beautiful part of Great Britain that often gets overlooked due to other parts of England being more popular. It's very rural, so many people move to bigger cities where there are more job opportunities. If you ever get a chance to visit some Devonshire towns like Plymouth or Exeter, do so and you won't regret it!

The Alps

As we're talking about European geography in this unit I've put these photos I took this summer of Mont Blanc and the Alps for you to see how spectacular these mountains really are. The photos don't do them justice because many are taken from inside the cable car. The music you can hear is one of my favourite pieces of music for relaxing: Morning Mood from Peer Gynt Suite by Edvard Grieg.
