25th September 2014 (Thursday)

Hello everybody!! I’m Amalia.

Today in Social sciences’ lesson we have continued doing our group projects: In my group we have selected the information and also the picture that we are going to use, we are going to start writing tomorrow.

Later Paqui has showed us in the whiteboard the famous Michelangelo’s  Sistine Chapel pictures , and she has also explained us curious things about them:

-The ceiling of the basilica : We know that Michelangelo spent three years painting this ceiling. The ceiling is about the Old Testament . There we can see other ‘’smaller’’ famous paintings as the creation of Adam. He painted that alone.

                                                 Sistine Chapel Ceiling by Michelangelo


-The last judgement : This great painting is found behind the altar. It’s about the New Testament and there are three parts: In  the center we can find Christ , on the left there is the heaven, and on the right the hell. In the hell we can see a man who has donkey ears and a snake is bitting him , this man criticised Michelangelo's work and he took revenge. Many years later the Vatican hired a japonesse company to clean the drawing because it became too dark.

                                                   The last judgement by Michelangelo 

Michelangelo was protect by the pope ,who commissioned  the works of  art, as he was protected he could do whatewer he wants,  thats why he draw naked people and the pope had to hire another painter to hide the genitals .This painter was called Il Braguettone which means ''taparrabos'' in spanish.
We have also seen a virtual tour around the chapel.

After that, she has left us to work again in our proyects and later she has shown us  a really funny video about Rennaissance man.

At the end of the lesson Paqui has told us to bring some famous quotes and she also  has read us some of them.

These are my corrections. They are small, like word order mistakes or capital letters. Remember to erase the words in brackets and correct what you have in bold font:

- Word order: ... has showed us the famous Michelangelo’s pictures from the Sistine Chapel on the whiteboard, smartboard. Remember that place, manner and time complements have to be placed at the end of the sentence.

- Old Testament

- ...we can see (an)other ‘’smaller’’ famous paintings. Remembar that "another" means "otro" and "other" means "otros"
- the New Testament

- ... we can see a man who has donkey ears ...this man who criticised Michelangelo'shis work and he took revenge

- as he was protected he could do whatewer he wanted, thats why he drew naked people
and another pope had to hire another painter to hide the genitals
- Il Braghettone, which means ''taparrabos'' in Spanish.

- We have also watched/seen a virtual tour

- she has left us (to) work again on our projects and later she has shown us a really funny video about Rennaissance man.

- she also has read(en) us

That's all. Good work!
