Hello everybody!!

Today in our Social Sciences lesson, Paqui has started the class remembering us that the people that write the journal on this blog and have mistakes have to correct them. Also, she has told us a very common mistake that she has seen in our journals and comments, and it's the use of the verb "agree". For using this verb, we don't need to use the verb "to be" before it. In that way, the form "I am agree" is incorrect. The correct way is "I agree", or in the negative case, "I disagree".

Then we have started with the correction of the Renaissance Art summary that she told us to do the last class. We've told her that we have included three things in our summaries:

1) A short definition about Renaissance Art.
2) The two stages of Renaissance Art.
3) The main features of Renaissance Art.

She has said us to add one more thing, and it's the cronology of Renaissance Art on its two stages: Quattrocento (15th Century) and Cinquecento (16th Century). Then, we have written in our glossary the meaning of the words Anatomy (Anatomía), Brach (Rama) and At sign (arroba).

After that, Paqui has started to explain to us the project that we have to do for next monday. The project consists of making a brochure of Renaissance Art, and it has to include:

*Definition, stages, cronology and main features.
*Renaissance Architecture.
*Renaissance Sculpture.
*Renaissance Painting.
*Short biography of the two main artists of Renaissance Art: Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo.
Then we have said Paqui with who did we want to do our project and she has written it on her notebook.

After that, she has given us free time to start with the project and she has put in the digital board a very funny video that is called "Renaissance Man". Then she has given me some advices for today's journal. It has been a good lesson.

See you tomorrow!!!

I've included this photo because it is from Leonardo Da Vinci, one of the most important artists of Renaissance.

- When we use this verb, we don’t need


- Branch

That's all. See you!
