Ropes in Portuguese Architecture


In Portugal during the 15th and 16th centuries King Manuel I ordered to construct monasteries, churches and other monuments with some nature elements (like roots, leaves, tree trunks...) and elements connected with the Portuguese Discoveries (like ropes, nets, coral...). This style is called "Estilo Manuelino".

We chose the following monuments because they have ropes carved in stone.

Girls time! ;)


Now it's time for the girls to show up their skills! They're a bit shy but they managed to play a simple song about a lonely hatchet trying to find a partner in the middle of the street. It's called "Machadinha".

My heroes!

 Hi everybody!

Today I'm very happy. My students (class 8A2) managed to play  two simple chords on the guitar after only THREE lessons! 


Watch them play a really fun Portuguese song (obviously you can't understand the words, but believe me it's really fun for us)! 


Plucking the strings

 Did you know in Portuguese the word "CORDAS" means both 'ROPES' and  'STRINGS'? 


How do you say 'STRINGS' in your country? and 'ROPES'? 


These are 'STRINGS'.



These are 'ROPES'.

Monday evening rope frenzy

 On last Monday evening we met at our school gym to play with ropes and most important to have some fun.

We skipped in and out the rope, pulled it with all our strengths, jumped over it or made (bent) our best to walk under and everyone was laughing about all the way.

No one got injured !!

Ropes in the Czech Republic

 We did a very nice activity. The children had to think about usage of ropes. They brought some examples to school, such as skipping rope, washing line, a string, threat, etc. We played games with ropes, and  they wrote about ropes in Czech they worked in groups- later they translated their examples into English. We did also small videos.
