Talking about the past (4th ESO compositions)

The 70s 
by Daniel Villar Cid 4th ESO Group A

The seventies was a decade with more differences between people's ideas. Also there were bad times because the Cold War took place and there were conflicts between Arabia and Israel and conflicts in Africa and Eastern Europe too.

In the 70s several styles were worn at once. On the one hand the hippy clothes, on the other side they created the psychedelic look with disco fashion, platforms, bell bottoms and people got long hair and also wore punk style.

In the world of music the early 1970s saw the rise of many diverse forms of popular and rock styles. Hard rock and heavy metal became popular with artists as Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Queen or others such as AC/DC or Kiss. 

In the world of films, the top ten films of the decade were "Star Wars", "Jaws", "Grease", "The Exorcist", "Close Encounters of the Third Kind", "Superman", "The Godfather", "Saturday Night Fever", "Rocky" and "Jaws 2".
As the 70s started, the United States of America had made two successful manned moon landings. 

The role of women in society was deeply altered with growing feminism. The 1970s was an era of fue price increases, rising insurance rates, safety concerns and emission controls. The 1973 oil crisis caused a move towards smaller, fuel-efficient vehicles. By the end of the decade, Stephen Hawking developed his theories about the Black Holes. Also, in that decade the e-mail was created and the first scientific hand-held calculator was introduced in the society.

It was a good decade with many interesting people. There were many interesting events and difficult times with the wars. Some events were the festivals held in some countries about many things, like cars, music, films. There also were tragic events like the earthquake of Haiti and the wars between the cities in the north of Africa.

In the world of music, there were a lot of artists like Eminem or Rihanna. It was the decade of the rap and the hip hop. In cinemas, there were many famous actors and good films. Some famous actors were Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and films like "Inception" or "Harry Potter". Fashions were interesting. It was the era of T-shirts and long hair. 

By the end of the decade, the world was different. Inventions such as the smartphones changed a lot. The IPhone was very popular and changed technology. 

One of the most memorable events in the decade of 2000-2010 took place in 2010 when Spain won the Football Worldcup. Millions of people were watching it when it happened in July. It was an important event for Spanish people. 

The decade of 2000-2010
by Paula Vázquez

The decade of 2000-2010 was a decade which people remember for many reasons. There were good times and happy events such as music festivals like Tomorrowland. There were also difficult times, for instance the attack to the Twin Towers.

In the world of music, there were a lot of pop and rock artists in the charts, for example Beyoncé and Avenged Sevenfold.

IN cinemas "Ju-On 1" and "Twilight" were big hits. "Ju-on 1" was the film of the year 2000 and "Twilight" was a film of the year 2008. 

Fashions were casual and urban. It was the era of Converse, long hair for girls or women  and short hair for boys or men. Clothes were simple and smooth in colours. 

By the end of the decade, the world was a different place. Inventions such as the sophisticated mobile phones and the laptops changed people's lives. One of the most memorable events of the decade 2000-2010. Specifically in the year 2008 was when a black person became president of the USA, the first in history. His name is Barack Obama.
