To my students of 3º & 4º ESO

Do you remember the play we watched last Monday about Bonnie and Clyde?

Do you remember the story? Who were Bonnie and Clyde? What about the end?
In this activity I want you :

-to click the links provided below and read about the story. There you have information about the plot, in case you don't remember it.

-to provide a brief summary of the story.

-to give your opinion about the story and the performance we watched on Monday:

*Did you like it? Did you have fun?
*Did you like the actors? Do you think they are good or bad actors?
*Do you consider the story is interesting or boring?
*Other comments.



This time we are going to work with the new single of my favourite English group. You have the lyrics below and a link to listen to the song (you can stop and listen to the song all the times you need it to complete the lyrics). To complete the task, copy the lyrics in a word document and add the missing words in a different colour. Then, send it to my e-mail address (I will give you my e-mail in class, ok?).

I know this song can be a bit difficult for you but I want to test your ability to understand a song in English when you are alone and relaxed at home (with no pressure) and without receiving any help.

P.S I need suggestions about the type of music and songs you like to use them on another occasion. Cheers!!

TAKE THAT 'Patience'

I'm still hurting from a love I lost
I 'm feeling your frustration
Any minute all the pain will ______
Just hold me close inside your arms tonight

So while I'm still healing
Just try and have a little patience
