En nuestra clase de Lengua estuvimos escribiendo descripciones. Como muchos de ellos estaban escritos muy bien Carol nos marcó los recursos que nos van a servir para hacer una buena descripción. Luego hicimos un Documento con todos estos recursos.
Este es el Documento:
In our Literature class we had read the story called “The Rain Horse” written by Ted Hughes. After analysing and discussing it our teacher told us to search some quotations about the events of the story. This is the task. I work with Juan Lutowicz.
- “Holding his collar close and tucking his chin down into it”, “(…) A wave of anger went over him: (…) anger against the land that made him feel so outcast.”
- “A thin, black horse was running across the ploughland towards the hill, its head down, neck stretched out. It seemed to be running on its toes like a cat, like a dog up to no good.”
- “In blinding rain he lunged through the barricade of brambles at the wood’s edge.”
- “At the wood top, with the silvered grey light coming in behind it, the black horse was standing under the oaks, its head high and alert, its ears pricked, watching him.”
- “Like lightning his legs bounded him upright and about face. The horse was almost on top of him, its head stretching forward, ears flattened and his lips lifted back from the long yellow teeth.”
- “Out in the middle of the first field, tall as a statue, and a ghostly silver in the under-cloud light, stood the horse, watching the wood.”
- “Its whinnying snort and the spattering whack of hooves seemed to be actually inside his head.”
- “He picked two stones about the size of goose eggs.”
- “He let out a tearing roar and threw the stone in his right hand. The result was instantaneous.”
- “His aim seemed to be under superior guidance. The stone struck and rebounded straight up into the air, spinning fiercely, as the horse swirled away and went careering down towa-rds the far bottom comer of the field…”
- “‘You stay there!’ he shouted. ‘Keep your distance and you’ll not get hurt'”. In this part of the story the human seem to be superior to the horse by ordering him to stay in the place he was.
- “Piece by piece he began to take off his clothes, wringing the grey water out of them, but soon he stopped that and just sat staring at the ground, as if some important part had been cut out of his brain.”
In our Biology class we have studied our last topic of “Digestive System” that is diarrhoea and cholera. After watching a video about this topic we had to answer the following questions. I work with Juan Lutowicz.
1) Name signs/symptoms caused by cholera.
Diarrhoea, vomiting, weaknessies and getting dehydrated are the signs.
Feeling sick is the symptom.
2) State ways in which the bacterium spreads in the village.
The first way of how the bacterium spreads in the village is by the spreading of the river, through flies that transport the bacteria, throught dirty hands and throught food not washed.
3) What is diarrhoea?
Diarrhoea is when faeces are discharged from the body, usally in liquid form.
4) How does the cholera bacterium cause diarrhoea?
It produces a toxin that attaches to the wall of the small intestine and affects the villi and makes it secrete chloride. Which causes water from the blood to move into the lumen by the process of osmosis.
5) How did the boy treat his father?
The boy treated his father by filtrating and boiling water at 100ºC to kill the bacteria. Then he gave his father the pure water with half of a teaspoon of salt and 6 of sugar that contained all the minerals that he needed.
6) Name the different actions which the boy taught to the people in the village to prevent the disease.
The ways to prevent the diseaseare:
- Washing your hands before eating and cooking;
- By filtrating water;
- By boiling water to kill the bacteria; and
- By building toilets of at least 20 meters far of the river.
