Solar Power!

20 Mar 2015 02:02pm

We had a fantastic morning watching the solar eclipse. We used special glasses so that we could look at the sun safely.

It was awesome. It looked like a giant orange banana hanging in the sky.

After we had watched it outside we watched a video link to Norway and saw the total eclipse that happened in Svalbard. The Diamond Ring was incredible.It was so exciting."

The Nervous Time-travelling Knight


Image result for knight in a forestOnce upon a time there was a nevous knight called Norman. His friends called him Nervous Norman. One dark, gloomy night Norman saw a flash of green light in the starlit sky Norman was scared but excited at the same time. Suddenly the light rocketed into the forest with a thunderous bang! After that he went outside to have a proper look but the blazing green light had disappeared. He was shocked. There was was something wrong. Despite being nervous Norman went to investigate the cursed, creepy forest at the place where he had seen the suspicious green light.

Creeping stealthily, Norman went closer to the hole in the ground to see if the green light would harm him and his family. Trembling with fear he crept cautiously towards the hole.....






Building a Poem

03 Feb 2015 01:15pm

poetry imageThis week in English we have been using a simple model to create poetic phrases. We have built up a bank of adjectives; a bank of verbs and a collection of adverbs. Then using the nouns we can see in pictures we are making phrases by picking 2 adjectives, followed by a noun then adding a verb and an adverb and then a final noun or adjective noun combination.

Here are some of our efforts:

Bare, frosty trees swaying soundlessly next to the glittering river bank.

Calm, frightening trees running swiftly.

Spooky, friendly leaves laughing loudly.

Dead frozen mountains falling upon the trees.  Crashing and destroying in the dark, wild breeze.

White icy river glittering slowly in a misty blue morning sunrise.

Soft snowy mountain tops sleeping soundly.

Crooked twinkling trees swiftly moving side to side next to the river bank.

Shimmering, snowy plants bellowing loudly in a spooky forest.

Bare icy trees sprinting happily by the shimmering river.

Tall barkless trees glittering proudly on the riverside bank.

Gloomy strong mountains fighting bravely on the frozen world.

Glinting frosty trees swaying slowly in the frozen meadow.

Huge, beautiful trees sleeping peacefully in the dark night.

Shivering, peculiar people shaking rapidly among the snowy hills.

Deserted shimmering rivers sitting calmly in a snowy field.

Towering trees collapsing loudly on a frozen landscape.

Christmas snow glistens like an icicle as still  as a statue.

The next step is for us to start to find ways to pair up some of these phrases so that the endings rhyme. After that we will need to look at the rhythm of each phrase and see if we can create a poem which flows and reads well.

Our topic this term is  shaping up and we are learning a lot about the human body and how it works. We have learnt about our bones. Did you know that children only have 206 bones and when they are around 18 years old you have 300 bones! Bones are realy important because if you did not have them then you would be like jelly.Your smallest bone is in your ear. It is smaller than a pea. Muscles protect your bones and bones protect the digestive system.

One day in a giant sea battle Robin, a small cabin boy quivered in a corner on the flaming deck of his ship. He seemed oblivious to the nails and shards of wood and cannon balls which were flying through the air cutting through peoples stomachs and sawing through their heads the suddenly his ship blew up. Many screams were heard.

Soon after a little fellow called Bob came looking for things to give his rebels and York a chance of beating Lancaster. He found a shipwreck and on that shipwreck was Robin. Bob saved him and they headed for the woods to go to the hideout of Bob’s Rebellion. Suddenly a band of mean looking burly muscular foreign soldiers came rushing towards them. Suddenly Bob pulled out a bow and arrow and shot them.

“Quick” said Bob.

They went to a tree house, when inside they warned the archers and suddenly from all sides they were ambushed by an army bearing the rose of Lancaster. Robin grabbed a crossbow. Soon all the army were killed then suddenly another soldier came and killed Bob.

“No!” cried Robin. The a hundred arrows shot from the bowmen. The soldier fell in agony and died.  After Bob’s funeral Robin was declared leader of the rebellion. Soon after Robin sent the Rebels on an attack. The attack took place at the house of Lancaster. Many people died and half the house of Lancaster fell and squashed a group of monks…..
