For a few days STD2A students have been busy displaying all their works for you tomorrow !
Don't forget to come and spend an hour or more in Chagall High School. There's something interesting for everyone:
Music, Hip Hop, design, cookies, information, plays.
That would be a shame to miss this !
On Monday I'll publish more photos. No doubt it will be beautiful, just like every year.
I would be so sad it slept out of your mind...

Final deadline to hand in your photos if you want to take part in the European Week's photo contest.
Everyone should write down in their diaries, that the 1st edition of the European Week in Chagall will take place from May 12th to May 16th. Lots of events in prospect !
1L1 and 1L2 students (16 years old) have written poems.
THE NEW POETS OF CHAGALL
As part of the lesson we studied a few poems from " The Children's Poetry Archive" . Every student had to choose a poem that corresponded to them most. We learned by heart and stood before the class. Then we proceeded to the oral. After that, the teacher asked us to write a poem of our own, but we had to get inspiration from our previously learned poem. Here are some poems written by these students:
The month after November
I think I’ll make a gift.
I think I’ll change the number
Of the population shift.
The mirror is unbroken
So I think I’ll gaze at my reflection.
I’ll be making myself up
With a clown’s makeup.
I don’t like apples
Therefore I think I’ll make a pie.
When I speak
I’ll start at the end.

All the poems haven't been published yet, so, please feel free to come back !
Some weeks ago I told you about a competition for young French writers in English:
Here is a new link to a page where you'll be able to read the texts written by the winners from the previous years' competitions. Don't be shy !
Whether you feel at ease writing poetry, short stories or autobiographical accounts, I'm sure you can be among the best writers this year !
Watch Roger Morris's video ! Read R. Morgan's advice !
And grab a pen and paper or switch your computer on if you feel more comfortable with using Word !
To know more about the rules and details of this competition, here is everything : http://www.editionsdidier.com/text/paper-planes-concours-writing-2014
And if you don't feel confident enough or if you hesitate or don't understand anything in the rules, come and ask me (Mrs Sirot) Room C13 or in the Staff Room. You can also ask Mrs Azema at the library.
Talking about competitions, don't forget to enter the Photo Contest !
It's still time, but it's highly time.

PS: Don't forget the roses you can buy for the people you love and like in your school ! They can be bought in the students' common room !
You like music.
You like Celtic music.
You haven't got anything planned on March 26th.
You don't usually go to concerts because it's too expensive.
This event is for you !!!
And, look out ! One of the names is famous in Chagall High School.
I was in London in October, but this work of art was only presented to the public in November. So, no wonder I missed it ! The artist was born in Morocco, but the voice is American, while it could be listened to in England. I like that.
The actual name of this work is "New Industrial Revolution". Have you ever imagined that your voice would be "visible" one day? Of course we already had kind of an idea thanks to "Audacity", your English teachers favourite software ! But here this is a 3D representation and it's quite amazing.

CHRISTMAS has gone.
NEW YEAR has arrived !
It's resolutions' time. Here are the ones I suggest you took :
Mine will be :
- Be patient when no one answers my questions in class.
- Publish at least one article a fortnight.
- Crack a joke in the staffroom when people start moaning.
- Find convincing arguments to make my students work and learn their lessons.
What will be yours ?
