The “Mona Lisa”, Leonardo da Vinci. (1503-1506)

Hi kids!

Your favourite painting is… “Mona Lisa” at least, for most of you.

The Mona Lisa is probably the most famous portrait in the world, but not much is known about it.

Look into her eyes and at her mysterious smile. Is she looking at you? Is she following you? Is she happy? Is she sad?

No one knows the right answer, so your guess is as good as mine;)

Enjoy the video!

Hello Lucy! Nice to meet you!

Hi kids!

She’s our pet Lucy and she’s really happy! She’s going to help us! Remember, she can’t speak Galician or Spanish so we are going to try to speak English as much as we can 😉

A big hug,

Teacher Montse and Lucy

“The Arnolfini Portrait”, Van Eyck. (1434)

Hi kids!

Today we are going to talk about art, artists and paintings.

My favourite painting is “The Arnolfini Portrait”. It’s by Jan van Eyck. He painted it in the fifteenth century.

In this painting the two people are in a bedroom and there is a chest, a bed, a lamp and a mirror.(You click on the mirror and you will discover something;)

The wife is wearing a green and blue dress. She’s giving her hand to her husband. She feels calm.

The husband is wearing a brown and black coat. He’s taking his wife’s hand. He’s looking to the painter.

There is a small dog in the picture and there are a pair of sandals on the floor. On the left wall there is an open window and some fruit.

This painting makes me feel relaxed and happy because of the soft colours and the tranquility of the scene.

What’s your favourite painting? What’s your favourite artist?

“The Arnolfini Portrait”, Van Eyck. (1434)

Hi guys!

Today we’ve talked about art, artists and paintings.

As I told you, my favourite painting is “The Arnolfini Portrait”. It’s by Jan van Eyck. He painted it in the fifteenth century.

In this painting the two people are in a bedroom and there is a chest, a bed, a lamp and a mirror.(You click on the mirror and you will discover something!

The wife is wearing a green and blue dress. She’s giving her hand to her husband. She feels calm.

The husband is wearing a brown and black coat. He’s taking his wife’s hand. He’s looking to the painter.

There is a small dog in the picture and there are a pair of sandals on the floor. On the left wall there is an open window and some fruit.

This painting makes me feel relaxed and happy because of the soft colours and the tranquility of the scene.

Maybe van Eyck was showing off a little in this painting because I think he used this picture to show how good his technique was. He was so proud that on the back wall of the room he has written in Latin, Johannes de eyck fuit hic (Jan van Eyck was here).

What’s your favourite painting? What’s your favourite artist?

Hello children!

How are you? Hoxe pola mañá Lucy estaba moi concentrada cando a encontrei e mirade o que estaba escribindo: un “acrostic” co seu nome. Animádesvos a facer o mesmo?

É moi fácil, só tedes que escribir o voso nome en vertical e despois pensar palabras en inglés que comecen por esas letras e escribilas en horizontal.

Lucy escolleu palabras que aprendemos este ano: “love, underpants, caterpillar, yellow”.

Podedes escribir o voso “acrostic” no material que máis vos guste, porque Lucy xa sabe que sodes grandes artistas 😉

Se vos animades a facer esta actividade, enviádeme algunha foto a teachermontsedominguez@gmail.com

Have fun!

Teacher Montse

P.D.: Peppa Pig quere axudarvos coas letras e as palabras en inglés.

Hello children!

How are you? Mirade como encontrei a Lucy no xardín!

“Lucy loves reading” e como sabe que esta semana celebramos o “World Environment Day” decidiu ler este libro, “The Earth Book”, nun dos seus sitios preferidos do xardín.

Animádesvos a escoitar este fermoso libro con ela? Déixovos un vídeo no que unha nena le o conto.

E vós, que facedes para “take care of our planet”?

Facede un debuxo ou o que vos queirades mostrando o que facedes para coidar o noso planeta e enviádeo a teachermontsedominguez@gmail.com para que  Lucy e todas as vosas compañeiras e compañeiros poidan velo.

Enjoy and take care of the earth!

Teacher Montse

Hello children! How are you today?

A Lucy encantoulle o libro ” Aliens love underpants” e mirade o que leva posto na cabeza! Hoxe díxome que quería viaxar á lúa…Queredes acompañala? Pois preparade os vosos astronaut helmets;)

Deixovos un vídeo por se queredes facer o voso “astronaut helmet”.

Se queredes enviar fotos dos vosos astronaut helmet, escribídeme a teachermontsedominguez@gmail.com.

Hello! How are you? Ola a tod@s! Como non podemos vernos en clase, comezarei a escribirvos por aquí para seguir propoñéndovos diferentes actividades!

Se queredes enviar fotos do que facedes, escribídeme a teachermontsedominguez@gmail.com.

Tamén hai alguén que vos quere saudar…

Hello children!

I love reading and looking at art, and of course I love trees 😉

I miss you!!

A big hug, Lucy

P.D. Se vos apetece, contádelle a Lucy que é o que máis vos gusta facer. Podedes facer un debuxo e escribir “I love….”.

Recordade a canción tan pegadiza de Pete the Cat ” I love my white shoes!”
