TOUGH WEEKEND AHEAD!!

This week's video is a bit longer than usual, but we think it is worth sharing, particularly for those of you who may think you are just bad at maths or, even learning. (Thanks to Larry Ferlazzo for the tip)



And sing along with the song. The official video is incredible, "a must watch". Lyrics downstairs.


Up&Up


fixing up a to drive in it again
searching for the water hoping for the rain
up and up, up and up
down upon the canvas, working meal to meal
waiting for a chance to pick your orange field
up and up, up and up
see a pearl form, a diamond in the rough
see a bird soaring high above the flood
it’s in your blood, it’s in your blood
underneath the storm an umbrella is saying
sitting with the poison takes away the pain
up and up, up and up it’s saying
we’re going to get it get it together right now
going to get it get it together somehow
going to get it get it together and flower
oh oh oh oh oh oh
we’re going to get it get it together I know
going to get it get it together and flow
going to get it get it together and go
up and up and up
lying in the gutter, aiming for the moon
trying to empty out the ocean with a spoon
up and up, up and up
how come people suffer how come people part?
how come people struggle how come people break your heart?
break your heart
yes I want to grow yes I want to feel
yes I want to know show me how to heal it up
heal it up
see the forest there in every seed
angels in the marble waiting to be freed
just need love just need love
when the going is rough saying
we’re going to get it get it together right now
going to get it get it together somehow
going to get it get it together and flower
oh oh oh oh oh oh
we’re going to get it get it together I know
going to get it get it together and flow
going to get it get it together and go
up and up and up
and you can say what is, or fight for it
close your mind or take a risk
you can say it’s mine and clench your fist
or see each sunrise as a gift
we’re going to get it get it together right now
going to get it get it together somehow
going to get it get it together and flower
oh oh oh oh oh oh
we’re going to get it get it together I know
going to get it get it together and flow
going to get it get it together and go
up and up and up
we’re going to get it get it together right now
going to get it get it together somehow
going to get it get it together and flower
oh oh oh oh oh oh
we’re going to get it get it together I know
going to get it get it together and flow
going to get it get it together and go
up and up and up
oh-oh oh, oh-oh oh oh oh oh
fixing up a car to drive in it again
when you’re in pain
when you think you’ve had enough
don’t ever give up
don’t ever give up

Bat For Lashes – Laura Lyrics
You say, that they’ve all left you behind
Your heart broke when the party died
Drape your arms around me and softly say
Can we dance upon the tables again?
When your smile is so wide and
your heels are so high
You can’t cry, put your glad rags on
And let’s sing along
To that lonely song
you’re the train that crashed my heart
You’re the glitter in the dark
Uh, Laura you’re more than a superstar
And in this horror show
I’ve got to tell you so
Uh Laura you’re more than a superstar
You say that you’re stuck in a pale blue dream
And your tears feel hot on my bed sheets
Drape your arms around me and softly say
Can we dance upon the tables again?
When your smile is so wide and your heels are so high
You can’t cry put your glad rags on and let’s sing along.
To that lonely song
You’re the train that crashed my heart
You’re the glitter in the dark
Uh, Laura you’re more than a superstar
You’ll be famous for longer then them
Your name is tattooed on every boy’s skin
Uh, Laura you’re more than a superstar
you’re the train that crashed my heart
You’re the glitter in the dark
Uh, Laura you’re more than a suerstar
And in this old horror show
I’ve got to let you know
Uh Laura you’re more than a superstar

BYE BYE AND BE HAPPY!!

2016 WORLD PRESS FREEDOM DAY


Every year, 3 May is a date which celebrates the fundamental principles of press freedom; to evaluate press freedom around the world, to defend the media from attacks on their independence and to pay tribute to journalists who have lost their lives in the exercise of their profession.
Over 100 national celebrations take place each year to commemorate this Day. The international day was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in 1993 following a Recommendation adopted at the 26th Session of UNESCO's General Conference in 1991.

The following interactive resource will help your students know about the problems that jounalists face when doing their job.


The World Press Freedom Index ranks 180 countries according to the level of freedom available to journalists. Published every year since 2002 by Reporters Without Borders (RSF), the Index has a growing influence as a tool that reminds governments of their duty to respect the right to freedom expression. Please check it.


When finished with your project, try the following activities: an online test, listening practice (very interesting) and your own choice.
