Learning about Scotland

Rodrigo Loma, Pilar Garcia y Elsa Rubio, 2 ESO C

Some weeks ago, we were given a talk about Scotland. It was done by Jeremy Brock.

He told us a lot of interesting things about this country. We learned some important information. For example, he explained us that there are a lot of mountains. The highest one is called Ben Nevis. However, most of the people live out of the mountains. There are many different sheep, even more than humans.

The ships are very big. He also told us that there are coal minings. There are also a lot of trains in this country.

He explained us that fishing is also very important and seafood is very good.

Jeremy talked us about whisky. He said that you can buy the best whisky in the supermarket. There are two different words: whisky and whiskey. Whisky means Scotch (Scottish) and whiskey means the Irish and American liquors.

The Forth Bridge is very old. It was built in 1890.

There are a lot of castles and museums in this country. Men sometimes wear skirts which are called kilt. The typical dance is called Ceilidh.

The Loch Ness is also very famous.

We liked the talk so much. We think that it was very interesting. We would like to attend to a similar talk again. We had a good time and we learned a lot of things.

Ayer día siete de marzo vino un mago, Jack, para estar con nosotros y ver su espectáculo de magia. Nosotros también le hemos ayudado, la presentadora fui yo e Inés le dio las gracias por pasar un buen rato. Patro y Joaquina han estado con nosotros.

Los trucos que m√°s me han gustado han sido, por ejemplo, con bolas. Jack ha hecho que apareciesen siete bolas en la mano de Rafa, nuestro compa√Īero. El n√ļmero de bolas iba cambiando, seg√ļn se las pasaba a una mano, a otra o la de Rafa.

Despu√©s han venido los aros r√≠gidos que los juntaba y separaba con gran facilidad. Ha intentado ense√Īarle a Juan a separarlos, pero ha sido imposible.

Con las monedas también ha hecho trucos, y ha convertido un billete de 20 Euros en uno de 50; ¡todos queríamos saber cómo se hace en truco!

Al final debajo de unas campa√Īas ¬†ha aparecido una naranja ¬†y una pera ¬°aut√©nticas!¬†Intentamos pillarlo pero ha sido imposible, es un mago muy bueno.
