Salvador (My favourite sport),

I like to play handball a lot because I like team sports. I'm playing in Dílar's Handball Team (DHT) in the teenage category. All the members of my team are between 12 to 14 years old and all of them are in the same school.

I like my team because we alll compenetrate very good. They are my friends!

Spanish handball team had win the world league. We have to practice more to be very good!

Migue (My favourite book)


My favourite book is '' Teacher's curse''.I like it because is very enjoyable and I can't stop reading it.The author is Laura Gallego García. She is very pasionated writer.I like her unusual way to describe the facts that happen in the heart of the book,so you don't have to be very attentive to the unusual facts that occurs.Ilike when the main characters go into the Shadow's laberynth and fought against the teacher.I feel like I am with they fighting against the teacher.I like to read about the history of Dana and about the history of Fenris.The best part I think is the end because Kai reincarnates into a dragon.



León (my favourite book)


My favourite book is ''The lord of the rings''.For the moment, I'm reading the third book of the triology ''The Lord of the rings''.The writer imagine a world with an epic war for the control and the liberty between the people and the dark forces.Also it's the history of two friends ,Frodo and Sam,who have the mission to destroy the ring,which is the centre of the bad power.

For me,the best part is the third book,when they destroyed the ring.


Hello

Our most important tradition for the Holy Week are the processions. There are big walks around all the town with floats with the Virgin and Jesus. The bearers move the floats that are very heavy. They celebrate the death and the resurrection of God.

The carriages are decorated with flowers and gold bread. There are men with white costumes, masks and long cones on the head, which are called "penitentes".

We don´t like it because it's boring, but they are part of the Spanish culture.

Which are your Easter traditions?

See you soon,

León, Salvador and Migue

That's our favourite sport:

Our favourite sport is volleyball. We sometimes play volleyball with our cousins. We only play volleyball in our familys. We only do it in our freetime. We haven't got time for a sports club, but we often play it. We think sport (physical education) at school is very cool. We often play ball games in school. It's so different from learning Mathematics or German or so. In summer we also play beach-volleyball.


What we have learnt about Easter traditions in Spain:


It starts on Palm Sunday and it finishes with the celebration of Easter Sunday in Spain. Semana Santa is a speciall time for Christians. Processions are very important and very big. Bunnies, rabbits and lambs are often associated with Easter because most babies of these animals are born around Easter time. The Easter Week ends with Easter Sunday. That's day full of lights and colours. Bells are ringing throughout the country.
Yours, Franzi and Jaci

Vienna week - by Franzi and Jaci


From the 10th to the 14th of June we stayed in a hostel in Vienna. During the Vienna week we had a lot of fun. The weather was very sunny. The best what we did was the musical and the "dialogue in the dark" a workshop of blind people. The activity "Spooky Vienna" was very funny we laughed the whole time. We will go to Vienna often because we enjoyed everything there.
