10 Minutes of English
25 października w naszej szkole odbyły się warsztaty kulturowo- językowe, których tematem przewodnim było Zjednoczone Królestwo Wielkiej Brytanii i Irlandii Północnej. W ramach warsztatów, przygotowanych przez zespół anglistów naszej szkoły, uczniowie mogli poszerzyć swoją wiedzę z zakresu kultury, geografii i życia społecznego Anglii, Walii, Szkocji oraz Irlandii Północnej. Niezwykle pomysłowe i bogate w treści plakaty oraz fiszki informacyjne przygotowane przez naszych uczniów stanowiły skarbnicę wiedzy dla licznych uczestników szkolnego quizu online Poznaj UK. Tego dnia w murach naszej szkoły rozbrzmiewała muzyka celtycka
a wszyscy miłośnicy krajów wysp brytyjskich mogli wziąć udział
w warsztatach prowadzonych przez swoich kolegów i koleżanki, którzy przy pomocy barwnych prezentacji multimedialnych opowiadali o zwyczajach, znanych postaciach czy charakterystycznych miejscach. Zgromadzeni na szkolnym korytarzu uczniowie z zaangażowaniem wsłuchiwali się w treści prezentacji oraz entuzjastycznie odpowiadali na zadawane pytania.
AGATHA CHRISTIE and her novels
Agatha Christie was born on 15 September 1890 in Devon in England. She was a crime novelist. Her dad died when she was eleven years old. After that Agatha started to travel with her mum around the world. When she was 85 she died on 12 January 1976 in Oxfordshire in England.
Agatha gained popularity because of her detective novels about Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple. Her first book was called “The Mysterious Affair at Styles” with Hercule Poirot. She has written 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections.
Hercule Poirot appears in many books just as in “The Labours of Hercules”. In this book the detective is going to do twelve labours that Heracles had to do. His first labour was capturing a thief of a Pekingese. The second was to investigate a murder of a doctor’s wife. The third labour was finding a mechanic’s beloved young girl. His goal in the fourth labour was to fight a Marrascaud’s gang. The fifth labour was avoiding a scandal between the Prime Minister and a newspaper “The X-ray News”. The sixth labour was connected with two Polish girls. The seventh labour was finding out that Hugh’s sickness was real. The goal in the eighth labour was to find a source of cocaine. The ninth labour was helping in the investigation of a painting by Rubens which was stolen. In the tenth labour he had to investigate the sect. Finding an old, stolen goblet was his eleventh labour. In the twelfth labour he was helping the police to check a nightclub.
In my opinion, this book is brilliant. A plot is intricate and very complicated. If someone doesn’t pay attention to a story, it will be difficult to keep up. Nevertheless,I recommend this book to everyone who likes reading interesting stories.
