Trip to Bournemouth

We were in Bournemouth (South of England) for a week. These are some of the most important anecdotes from our trip.

First of all, when we arrived at Madrid Airport, we were waiting for three hours there because the plane was late due to the snow. We spent our time going to the Burger King and watching how Nerea put her make-up on. Also we played with Alvaro’s suitcase.

Finally, England!!! We had English classes in the morning with a very old woman, we had some very original classes in which we didn’t learn much English, but we did some sport, we watched the news, we reviewed some grammar, we wrote some information about Bournemouth and London from Wikipedia and we had to be creative with our works, painting them in colours.

At lunch time, we spent our time with some Italian students who were there studying in the same school.  Some of them were nasty, rude and ideologically extremist with some people, but we met some nice and handsome people too. In the trips they were smoking even though it was illegal, but their teachers didn’t care.

We did some activities in the afternoon. On Monday, we went for a walk around the city. We saw the city centre, the pier, and the beach, and we did some shopping. On Tuesday, we watched a boring old film called Matilda. On Wednesday, we travelled to Swanage, a coastal village, we saw the city and the beach, and some of us tried homemade fishcake.

On Thursday, we had some free time that we had to spend with the teachers and our mates. We took a look at a Victorian museum, we saw a typical Victorian house decorated with Victorian art, and we did a quest about things from the nineteenth century, searching through the whole palace. Then, we visited the Oceanarium. We saw all types of fish, sea animals, and penguins…

After that, we walked along the beach and we arrived at the pier of Bournemouth, where there are arcades. There, Martín got kicked out because he hit some machines. While Martín was out, we were playing in the arcade and some people were taking photos for Instagram in the pier. Later we were hungry, so we decided to try fish and chips, but they told us to walk while we were eating, so we got indigestion and some people got sick.

On Friday we graduated and they gave us a diploma to show our level of English. Unfortunately, the teacher placed us all in the same level, and we didn’t have the same level so it was a rip-off; to be honest, the classes were a rip-off. Then we had a Tea Party, we ate the typical cake with the jam and sweet butter, and we drank tea. That afternoon we had some free time in the city, and we did some shopping.

On Sunday we went to London!  We spent two and a half hours on the bus. We arrived in London and the first thing we did was pee in a public museum which we didn’t visit. A tourist guide showed us the city very quickly without explaining anything. We couldn’t see some of the most important landmarks of the city because we had little time to visit the city. We ate a sandwich from a take-away restaurant.DY7A8AGX4AAUepH

We had some free time that we spent with some Italians, seeing the main streets and the Chinese neighbourhood where we bought some drinks and sweets. We visited the M&M shop, one of the biggest in the world; it smelt very strongly of chocolate. Also, we were in a shop where they tried to sell us marihuana cakes and chocolate and some vapers. We bought some souvenirs and some of us bought a condom with the Big Ben on it. We shot a video of a person dressed up with all the British stereotypes to promote his store, and of us dancing with him.

Then, in the bus back to Bournemouth, we had a little fight with the Italians because everyone wanted the back seats in the bus, but then the fight became more and more disgusting (saying bad words and playing the Spanish and Italian national anthems to prove which is the best country).

In the end we had a very good time, we were happy with our British families, we made some Italian friends, there were some love stories, and we enjoyed the experience. We arrived home safe and sound.

1º ESO Goes to the Theatre

The students from the first-year ESO class went to the theatre this morning. Here are their thoughts on The Prince and the Homeless Man

Today we went to the theatre. We saw a play about a prince who becomes homeless and a homeless person who becomes a prince. The prince wants the freedom of the homeless life, and the homeless person has looked through the windows of the palace every day and dreams of living there. At the end, the two people return to their previous positions.

The actors were very funny and at the end we had the opportunity to ask them questions. But there was a problem, because a knight used a defibrillator on the king even though the play was set in the Middle Ages. The actors were very expressive and the story was funny.
