FARENHEIT BLUM 71

Hi! What’s up ?

Do you know us? 

We are teenagers like you.

We decided to attend The european option.

We’re fond of the culture and the english language.

We want to share our interests…

___________________________

We had the idea to give the name « FahrenheitBlum71 » to our blog

    when some of us went to see a play adapted  from

« FAHRENHEIT 451 » by Ray Bradbury

_____________________________

To know more about this outing in Lyon, read the following article written by O.Simon, teacher : 

In December, 47 students went to Lyon with their English teachers.

In the morning, they saw a play adapted from Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.

It was a first for many students to see a play in English. It was quite hard and challenging at the beginning but they finally enjoyed this new experience.

In the afternoon, they visited an exhibition dedicated to Fred Deux’s artwork. This French artist’s disturbing style surprised the students a lot. Many thought the paintings were weird.

In brief, this outing was synonymous with discovery and suprise for the students!

 

Who is Banksy ?

Banksy is an anymous street artist who paints in the streets with stencils. He comes from Bristol but he paints also abroad, for example in the USA. 

His favourite symbols are the monkey and the rat.

He does not sell his paintings even if they certainly cost much money.

He gave a painting to the Bridge Farm primary school ( in Bristol ) to thank the children for having named a building « Banksy ». The children were cheerful.

Finally, his paintings are funny, satirical and COLOURFUL.

We visited an exhibition : « Cartooning for peace »

DESCRIPTION 

The exhibition Cartooning for Peace was held in the main hall of the high school more than a month ago. The two main topics were peace and cartooning. There were different subjects such as children in wartime, the environment, censorship or the Near East

A BIT OF HISTORY 

Cartooning was first created because many people could not read in the past. Cartoons are mainly published in newspapers. Moreover, the most famous cartoonist is Plantu. The association « Cartooning for peace », was initially created in 2006 to defend people’s freedom of speech. Eponymous exhibitions were also created for the same purpose.

GOALS

Cartooning has several goals – first, it gives messages about burning issues. Secondly, it denounces serious problems and finally it makes people laugh about them. 

FEEDBACK 

     Maewenn found this exhibition interesting because she learned many things about the environment
     Valentin worked on the conflict between Palestine and Israel. It was unknown to him
     Finally, Simon studied the Internet and its dangers. He found the information quite useless because he already knew about this topic.

The 5 best successful series on Netflix are:

« 13 reasons why » : a drama series

        13 reasons why is a drama series.

It’s an American series which is inspired from the novel written by Jay Asher.

     The main characters are Hannah Baker and Clay Jensen. Hannah and Clay are 17- year-old teenagers.

One day, Clay receives a box containing 7 tapes. Each tape has 2 sides : A and B. They were saved by Hannah before her death. On each side a person is referred and is responsible for her suicide – her friends.

There are 13 reasons which caused her death, that’s why the series is called like that.

We liked it because we love drama series and because it’s realistic.

There is a lot of suspense, and when we watch an episode,  we want to watch the following one …

« 13 reasons why » (Jay Asher)

       Hi everyone !

Recently I read a new book : 13 reasons why !

Waouh! I think it’s  one of the best books I’ve ever read !

Because you know I’m not a  very big book reader,  but this one is very interesting and it conveys an important message for us, teenagers It talks about bullying at school and the effects it can produce. I will sum up the story :

Hannah Becker, a  young girl who committed suicide is going to explain why and more particularly the 13 reasons why she killed herself. After her death, the first person who caused her to commit suicide receives a box, and after that, he has to give it to the next person. In this box there are 13 tapes  ; each tape matches with one person who bullied her. The last of them, Clay Jensen,  has received the box but he doesn’t behave like all the other ;  in fact,  he doesn’t  follow Hannah’s instructions. He’s going to denounce theses facts to the police and try to change things….

I hope that you’d like to read that book now. It was adapted in a series, so,  if you don’t like to read,  you can watch the series,  that’s  cool too !

See you soon ! M. J.
