2.en.36 first post since winter solstisce and a set of excuses for…

Has  your English teacher been hibernating? Some animals hibernate in winter, so your teacher might have decided to do so too.

well, kind of. At least English posts have been on stand by for a while,  leaving room for your Spanish , Catalan and Art teachers to publish on the blog . Meanwhile, you have been working a lot: cooking delicious dishes, recording videos, and reading newspaper headlines.You have also become experts on Van Gogh’s biography and learnt secrets about his paintings.  In the last sessions you have made up the most incredible excuses for being late.

I hope everything is reflected in your notebook . Summaries of class sessions are essential.

Even if you are good at making up excuses,  teachers are even better at discovering lies. Here you can see two boys ( they call tehmselves Bacon and eggs) whose imagination is almost as great as yours.

I have copied 14 of their  excuses for you.However, I have left them unfinished for you to complete them.  Do you understand all of them?u have to look up in the dictionary?

Here follows a list of the missing endings in their excuses. Listen to the video and end their excuses in the proper way.

a spell on me/diarrhoea/in the shower/slapped me on the face/far too heavy to carry to school/knocked me out/a bank/ in my house/by a bear/the tap/ by a bear/ the chicken pox/I was waiting for the tooth fairy/ kidnapped me/ stole my shoes

  1. I drowned 
  2. I got attacked 
  3.  Santa Klaus
  4. I had explosive

Homework: Post your comments to the blog for next Friday
Now.go  to this site . Read and listen to an on line book about animals in winter. Next Monday you will have a short test on hibernation. No excuses allowed!
In case you need it, the site gives you the option of printing the book.
