The crying of a hungry baby.
The singing of a drunken man.
The fear of a lonely lady.
And the dog that barked for ham.
Some kids worked all day.
None of them could even play.
Kids played with whatever they could find.
Jump in puddles and trees they could climb.
Why do people like to visit places like Charles Dickens’ house? What do we think we can learn about him by looking at his house? What would someone learn about you by looking at your bedroom and the things that you keep about you?

On Monday 16th January, Eva Sajovic and Sarah Butler are coming to the secondary classroom. They are artists-in-residence at the Cuming Museum. Their current project is about collecting, and what objects mean to people. This is what they say:

“We are asking local residents to select objects from their own lives, which they would put into a museum: objects that represent themselves, their home lives, or the history of the area. Eva and Sarah will be making a new exhibition within the museum showcasing these local objects (either their stories, or the objects themselves).”

Is there anything special you have kept? What is it? Where do you keep it? What does it mean to you? What do you think it says about you?

Charles Dickens Storyboard

We were talking about Charles Dickens because it is 200 hundred years since he was born. I made a story board about his life. I made a recorded voice and put it on the story board. Next week we’re going to make a animated film about it.

Michael Jackson’s estate has made more than $1bn (£677m) since his sudden death in 2009.

 US magazine Billboard reported that Michael’s  album sales have generated a total of $383m (£259m) whilst the revenue from his film “This Is It “has made a reported $400m (£271m).

Sony Music Entertainment has made a deal to release another 10 albums of the late singer’s music over the next seven years, including one of never before heard material.

It was just one year ago that Michael was found dead.  with a shroud of mystery around his death

The boom in record and film sales shows that people are still grieving for the King of Pop all over the world.   

Most of the world’s capitals have been paying tribute to him.

In London, people moon walked all over Trafalgar Square. In Puri in India, people made a sand sculpture. Hollywood people laid tributes on the star’s name.  

It looks like just like Elvis, Michael will make more money dead than alive

William Shakespeare

Shakespeare was born on 23rd April 1564 in Stratford – upon – Avon and died 1616 aged 52. He was regarded as the world’s famous writer. His mother Mary Arden was a farmer’s daughter and his dad John Shakespeare was a farmer turned Glover maker and mayor of Stratford.

In 1582 Shakespeare turned 18 were he then married Anne Hathaway which she was eight years older then him. The first child Susannah was born in the following year and twin’s hamnet and Judith followed in 1585. Hamnet died aged 11.

 Due to William Shakespeare first two siblings dying at one year William became the oldest and the first to attend local grammar school where he would of learnt Latin and Greek.

In 1592 William Shakespeare in his early twenties was earning money as an actor and playwright in London. His wife and kids stayed in Stratford. He soon became a leading member of a theatrical company called the lord’s chamberlain’s men. with whom he remained for the rest of his life .
