FIRE, FIRE! LONDON’S BURNING (AGAIN)

Londons-Burning-on-the-Thames

London was burning again tonight – 350 years after the Great Fire tore the heart out of the British capital. A 400ft wooden model went up in flames on the River Thames to mark the anniversary – and you can watch how it unfolded above. The blaze in 1666, which started in Pudding Lane, ripped the heart out of the city and ruined around 13,200 homes.

But amid all the destruction and death was an event which changed the face of London forever, and gave birth to the modern UK capital.

Traguardi per lo sviluppo della competenza al termine della scuola secondaria di primo grado per la prima lingua straniera

  1. In contesti che gli sono familiari e su argomenti noti, l’alunno discorre con uno o più interlocutori, si confronta per iscritto nel racconto di avvenimenti e esperienze personali e familiari, espone opinioni e ne spiega le ragioni mantenendo la coerenza del discorso.

  2. Comprende i punti essenziali di messaggi chiari in lingua standard su argomenti familiari che affronta normalmente a scuola e nel tempo libero.

  3. Descrive esperienze e avvenimenti, sogni, speranze, ambizioni; espone brevemente ragioni e dà spiegazioni di opinioni e progetti.

  4. Nella conversazione, comprende i punti chiave del racconto e espone le proprie idee in modo inequivocabile anche se può avere qualche difficoltà espositiva.

  5. Riconosce i propri errori e a volta riesce a correggerli spontaneamente in base alle regole linguistiche e alle convenzioni comunicative che ha interiorizzato.
