The Eiffel Tower

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

This is one of my favorite pictures of the Eiffel tower because -if you look at it very closely its sparkling!In the summer holiday I was lucky enough to climb the Eiffel tower at night and at sight it was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen!On the first floor¬†of the Eiffel tower thier is a bar with some seats and a dance floor!(which I wasn’t expecting!). On the Third floor it was a bit like a shopping centre as their were some many shops( great place to work!)And at the top there was the most amazing view!All you could see was a sea of bright lights from flashing cameras!( although at the top it was a bit wobbly!

The WOW Ship – Allure of the Seas

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014


Allure of the Seas is a cruise ship operated by Royal Caribbean Cruises. At 362 meters long and 47 meters wide, she is the biggest cruise ship ever made. Only just though, as she is only 5 centimeters longer than her sister ship, Oasis of the Seas.

She was laid down next to her sister ship (Oasis of the Seas) at the STX Europe shipyard in Turku, Finland. This is similar to when the Olympic and Titanic were laid down next to each other as sister ships in 1912. She left the yard two years later in 2010. Like her sister, Allure of the Seas passed through the Solent to anchor at Portsmouth so she could drop off shipbuilders. She is the largest ship ever to visit the Solent.

She arrived in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on 11th November 2010 where she was greeted by thousands of spectators who had been waiting to see the ship for a long time. Allure is very popular with passengers quite simply because of her size.

Allure of the Seas has only visited the Caribbean and the US during her four-year lifetime, but this is soon to change, as she will visit the Mediterranean and Southampton in 2015.

Best Friends!

A Best Friend is someone who is always there for you through the sad and happy times. They’re the one’s who brighten up your life with their smile. The special one’s in your life who you share your most embarrassing secrets, latest gossip and your special moments. Best Friends are like sisters/brothers to one another because you’re so alike, yet so different! A true Best Friend supports you and trusts you, and also believes in you. If you’re true Best Friends you are inseparable, partners forever and most of all, happy to be Best Friends!

My Best Friend is Lucy P because she is all of those things! Lucy P and I are like two peas in a pod, without each other our lives wouldn’t have been half as fun. ūüôā

An 11 year old girl called Lucy can’t go to school because she has a dissobillity of ¬†polio and isn’t able to walk to school. Lots of children all over the world can’t go to school because off a dissobillity of polio. If people don’t help children like Lucy ¬†then more children will get polio and will suffer not being able to go to school.

How would you feel if you had a dissobillity ¬†and you couldn’t go to school?

How would you feel if you had polio?

Just remember there are millions of little children like Lucy.

School Children Week#33

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Dear World Leaders,

I’m writing to you because children all over the world with disabilities and no disabilities cannot go to school, either because of a disability ¬†or the journey to their School is too far. If these children can not get to school they’re missing out on a life time’s worth of education. Further more, when they become adults how are they going to get a descent job to pay the bills if they can’t even learn? At least 75% of Children around the world should be able to go to School, and if not that, everyone! Please help them.

 

Week #33- Send My Friends To School

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Dear Mr Cameron,

I am writing to you to inform you of ¬†the problems children in poorer country’s such as: Africa and Kenya. ¬†There are more than 24 million children not going to school. ¬†All children should have the chance to go to school and get a great education. Children that are unable to go to school have either a disability or are unable to walk there. Polio is one on the most common diseases to catch in Africa and Kenya ¬†as they are a few of the most poorest countries in the world.

Yours Sincerely,

Lucy.

Help The Children (Week #33)

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Wednesday 21st May 2014

Dear Mr Obama,

I’m writing to you to say you need to keep your promise to the children of the world. To make sure all children are in a school by 2015. This is an important promise because around 57 million children are not in school and it’s guessed that 24 million aren’t at school because of a disability they have.  This problem has been getting better {because of help all my friends} but it’s still too mean children out of school each day.

Thank you for your valued time to read this important letter.

Adele

Week #33 – Send My Friends To School

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Dear Mr Cameron,

I am writing to inform you about this terrible problem in how some children across the world aren’t going to school. This is very bad. In which, we need to help to get them going to school possibly ¬†everyday.

Some children are not going to school because of the diseases and disabilities. Did you know that there are over 57 million children across the world not going to school and roughly half ( 27 million ) don`t go to school because of polio, a disease which makes your legs or arms numb.

Please look into this. Thank you.

Your sincerely,

Asha.

Week #33 – Letter

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Dear Mr. Ricardo Martinelli,

I have become aware of the fact that many children with disabilities are not going to school. This number is not small. It is in fact, over 24 million children. That’s 6 times the population of Panama! How would you feel if you had a child with Polio and they couldn’t go to school? Well that is happening all over the world whilst you are reading this letter. You can help the charity called Save All My Friends and try to help ALL children get into school by at least 2020.

Thank you for your help

Plane blog #1 Gloster Meteor

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

The Meteor was Britain’s first (and one of its most successful) fighter jet. It’s wingspan was 37 ft, 2 in and it’s total length was 44 ft, 7 in.

The design was first created by Gloster chief designer, George Carter ¬†in 1940, when he started creating plans for a British¬†¬† fighter jet. In 1941, the company was ordered to deliver 12 jet fighter proto-types to the RAF. The RAF flew it’s single engine original on May 15 the same year, making this the first ever flight of a British jet.

When the test results came back, Gloster decided to forward the design with a twin-engined model(the main reason being the lack of power from the engines of that time), meaning the original was never again produced.

Carter then based the official war-ready Meteor on this design. It was an all-metal single-seated plane, with addition of a high tailplane (rear end), keeping the horizontal tail-plane (tail wing) out of the jet-wash (jet exhaust). It rested on a tricycle undercarriage, with a set-forward cockpit that was framed in metal. For war purposes, it held four 20mm cannon in the nose, with the capability of carrying 16 3in rockets. The name was originally changed to “Thunder Bolt”, but this confused it with the earlier created American craft pictured below.

Republic P-47 Thunderbolt

Testing of this latest model began May 5 1943, powered by two De Havilland Halford H-1 (Goblin) engines but most characteristics where the same as before. As the tests moved on through the year, more engines were tried. The engine used when the Meteor F.1 went into official production in early 1944 was the twin Whittle W.2B/23C (Rolls-Royce Welland), and in the development process, prototypes were even used by the Navy to test it’s aircraft carrier suitability.

Finally, the first 20 Meteors were sent to the RAF on June 1 1944. These were assigned to 616 squadron, and so began the Meteor’s military history.
616 squadron began flying sorties to end the German V-1 threat on July 27, downing 14 of the flying bombs during this mission, and were rewarded by being upgraded to the latest F.3 model, which featured improved speed and pilot visibility.

World War II: V-1 Flying Bomb

German v-1″buzz bomb”/”doodlebug”

During the war, it mainly flew ground/reconnaissance missions, while never encountering¬† the German version of itself, the Messerschmitt Me¬† 262, and often being confused with it by allied forces, giving it it’s vivid white paint job to ease recognition. By the end of the war, the f.3 had only destroyed grounded German craft, but it made up for this as it had destroyed 46 of them, while rendering some runways useless. Never the less, when the war ended, development of the Meteor continued, and it even became the RAF’s primary fighter. This all led to yet another model, the F.4, that was introduced in mid 1946, and was powered by the best engines available, the¬† Rolls-Royce Deterrent 5’s.

World War II: Messerschmitt Me 262

The new F.4 featured a strengthened air frame and pressurized cockpit, increasing the max height. These vast improvements led to it being produced in large numbers and being exported to a wide range of countrys. Gloster even created a 2 seat trainer model, the T-7,¬† to help with training, in 1949. In an effort to keep up with the enemy’s new fighters, Gloster improved the design again, the f.8, in August 1949, which featured Derwent 8 engines, a lengthened fuselage (body) and a redesigned tail (rear end) structure. This type also included a state-of-the-art ejection seat, making this craft so reliable that it became the backbone of the RAF.

The F.8 was used extensively throughout it’s evolution in the Korean War by the Australians and, though it was outranked by planes such as the American MiG-15 and the F-86 Sabre, it was ideal for ground support roles. Over the Meteors history, it shot down 6 MiGs, destroyed over 1,500 military vehicles , and 3,600 buildings, while only losing 30 aircraft. Unfortunately, the Meteor was phased out with the creation of the¬†Supermarine Swift and Hawker Hunter by the mid-1950’s.

This is the cockpit of the Boeing 737

The Boeing 737 is a short-to- ¬†medium range, ¬†narrow body air ¬†liner and it can hold 215 ¬†passengers. ¬†It first flew on the ¬†9th April 1967. ¬†The engines on ¬†this plane do not ¬†have ¬†circular¬†inlets like most other ¬†air ¬†crafts. The 737 is the only ¬†currently produced passenger ¬†aircraft this size or larger that can ¬†operate completely without ¬†hydraulics.¬†Most 737 cockpits are ¬†equipped with “eyebrow windows” positioned above the main glareshield. Eyebrow windows were a feature of the original 707 and 727. They allowed for greater visibility in turns, and offered better sky views if navigating by stars.¬†a Boeing 737-200, crashed while attempting to land at Chicago Midway International Airport. Two people on the ground and 43 of the 61 passengers and crew on board were killed. This was the first-ever fatal incident involving a 737.

Lilly pushed the door cautiously until she could see inside she kept doing this movement over and over again.Pressing her ear to the door she heard the most strangest conversation ever.She thought her teachers were speaking in a strange foreign langue.”Mi clase ¬†hizo el mejor trabajo de hoy!”piped out Mr Edwards in his normal calm tone.After that a more ¬†suttle voice shouted.”Na,wnaeth mwynglawdd!”Boasted Mrs Dye from the far corner.Suddenly,Mrs Booth pushed past and said…”IO JU NUK MUND ¬†TE SERIOZE!” screamed Mrs Booth,dropping her tea on the floor.

Sorry its shorter than the expected amount.Also the languages I used were:

Spanish for Mr Edwards

Welsh for Mrs Dye

Albanian for Mrs Booth!

…and then¬†opened the cubord door and

saw a boar,

the kind of boar that opens it’s jaw,

what a glore to see that boar!

now that boar was doing such trouble everywhere,

throwing pears,

pulling hair,

and even eating underwear!

that monster dosn’t even care, he’s making such a mess everywhere!

Oh no, now he’s tearing up¬†my little lair,

now what I did about that cheeky little thing,

I got little sling,

and slung it with a ping!

now that boar was very poor,

as it hit him right in the core,

he fell dead, as dead as a door

and that was the end.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MS Aurora

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

The MS Aurora is a cruise ship operated by P&O Cruises. She is 270 meters long and 32 meters wide. After the completion of Oriana in 1995, P&O decided to make a similar running mate to eventually replace the aging SS Canberra. In 1998, her keel was laid down at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenberg, Germany. Later in April 2000, Aurora was finished and christened by HRH Princess Anne.

In March 2001, Aurora was on her first world cruise when she received a distress signal from a ship called the Pamela Dream. When the¬†Aurora¬†arrived at the site of the sinking she lowered a lifeboat for three survivors. Later that year,¬†Aurora¬†was docked in New York on September 11th when the Twin Towers were hit. Luckily,¬†Aurora¬†was docked far enough away from the accident so she wasn’t damaged.

In 2005, Aurora was scheduled to start a world cruise, but whilst in the English Channel bound for Madeira, Aurora’s¬†propellers malfunctioned, and she had to head back to Southampton. When docked in Southampton, passengers were able to enjoy the ship for 2 days, whilst getting a full refund. (Which could be up to ¬£40,000!)¬†After this, people started calling it ‘The biggest Isle of Wight ferry’ and ‘The World Booze Cruise’ as P&O offered free drinks and a 50% discount on the 2007 world cruise.

In 2011, Aurora had a minor refit and was made a family friendly ship along with Ventura, Azura and Oceana. This group will be joined by a new ship called Britannia in 2015. Today, Aurora offers breaks to Guernsey, Northern Europe cruises and a wide variety of Australia & New Zeland cruises.     

MS Oceana

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

MS¬†Oceana¬†is a cruise ship operated by P&O Cruises. She is 261 meters long and 32 meters wide. Thats over 5 Olympic – sized swimming pools! The¬†Oceana was originally built in 2000 at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy as Ocean Princess¬†for Princess Cruises. She was christened by Ali MacGraw and Ryan O’Niel and she entered service on 16th February 2000. During this winter/spring season, she was positioned in the Caribbean, whilst in the summer/autumn season, she would cruise in Alaska.

In 2002, Ocean Princess¬†was swapped with P&O’s¬†Adonia, and the¬†Ocean Princess¬†became¬†Oceana¬†and¬†Adonia¬†became¬†Sea Princess. She was renamed in Southampton by HRH Princess Anne in 2003.

Oceana has the nickname ‘The Warm Ship’ because she sails to Scandinavia and Northern Europe during the summer and the Caribbean and Mediterranean during winter. In 2008, Oceana had a large refit which improved her restaurants and gave the menus a french taste inspired by Marco Pierre White.

In January 2012, Oceana had another refit, which refurbished her staterooms and made her a family friendly ship along with Azura, Aurora and Ventura. This group will be joined by Britannia in 2015.
