Farewell, 6E!

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

It’s the end of our last day; the corridors and classrooms are echoing, and I’m contemplating how to get lots of booze, chocolate and assorted gifts safely home! Thank you.

Thank you for being a wonderful class. Your enthusiasm and kind, caring nature make my job an absolute pleasure. I will miss each and every one of you (some more than others :-p), but there always comes a time to move on and I am sure you will love your time at secondary school!

CaptureRemember, you are welcome to post on here and stay in touch over the holidays, so long as you’re still safe and kind with your comments – I can ban people now! :-p

I wish you all an enjoyable summer, full of fun, family, friends and sunshine. You will always be welcome in my classroom.

The Adventures of Flykachu

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

Flykachu lived in the attic of a human. This human was called Jimmy. Jimmy lived on his own. But, not for long.

One day, Jimmy adopted a child. It was a boy called Tom. He loved to play outside in the field where he would: make dens out of sticks and leaves; climb trees (pretending they were mountains) and search for bugs.

On one of these searches -in the attic- was –when he discovered Flykachu. Flykachu wasn’t your ordinary fly, when you touch him, he sends a little shot of electric into your blood. Tom was feeling around the dark, dusty attic when he got a shock.

Screaming, like he had just saw a ghost, Tom ran downstairs to his new dad. “Dad! Dad! I just saw a Flykachu!” Tom’s dad had told him imaginary stories of a Flykachu that was electric. “No you haven’t. There’s no such thing. Don’t wind me up.” They argued for a while but, as Tom had expected, his Dad didn’t believe him.

That night, Tom felt determined to prove to Dad that he really did see a Flykachu and he wasn’t going mad. So, he slipped out of bed and headed into the attic. Tom spotted the bright, blue glow in the corner of the attic and walked towards it. Sitting quietly on Dad’s dusty old dusty table was Flykachu. He flew onto Tom’s hand and, not like last time, Flykachu didn’t give Tom a shock. Flykachu’s can actually chose to shock someone or something depending on if it feels threatened.

The next morning, Tom showed Flykachu to his farther whereas, he still didn’t believe Tom. Tom didn’t know what to do so, he put Flykachu back and went up to his room to do his homework.

Tom thought and thought and thought. Finally, he knew what to do, he got a metal pole from out of the garage and stuck it in the ground. When he called his Dad outside, he told Flykachu to sit on the pole. To his Dad’s amazement, the pole glowed and the ground around it went black. However, dad still didn’t believe him.

His next idea was to take Dad up into the attic and show him Flykachu’s glowing body. So he took Dad upstairs and showed him Flykachu. But, again, Dad just thought that it was a light.

Tom didn’t know what to do? So, he went to his secret hideout (a small wooden tree house, which was hidden in the biggest oak tree in the woods). He sat there, next to the Flykachu and thought. How can I convince my Dad to believe me? He wondered and wondered what to do. Eventually, he came to the conclusion that he would just tell his Dad.

So he went up to his Dad -who was making tea- and told him what he had been trying to tell him all day. “I really did see a Flykachu, Dad,” he said. “Alright Tom I believe you,” Dad replied. Tom pulled his Dad into a tight hug.

They lived together (with the Flykachu) for the rest of their lives and every night the three of them would sit in the tree house and watch the stars go by as another day came.

The Adventures of Squidgy and Squirt

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

Squidgy and Squirt lived in an old tattered caravan just off the coast of Canada. There was nothing unusual about them- apart from the fact they were both monkeys. Every day they went out and searched for some juicy bananas to eat. But, they were getting very short of bananas.

One day they were out searching when Squidgy spotted something. “Look! What’s that!” he exclaimed. In the distance,  there was a glowing light reflecting of Banana Mountain (it was called this because it looked unusually like a banana) like a mirror.

They ventured towards it like a tiger stalking it’s prey. When they got close enough, Squirt spotted a small door that only monkeys could fit through. “Let’s go in,” Squirt whispered in a low toned voice. “No we can’t. It’s too dangerous!” They kept on arguing for a few minutes. But, to save your ears, I kept it short.

Once they had gone in, it became very dark and they could hardly see. Squirt felt along the floor and found a torch. They saw, along the corridor, a great oak door and ,like Indiana Jones would do, they headed towards it to see what was behind. When they got there, they saw a glow coming from behind.

Behind the door was a huge room which was full of bananas. “That’s why it’s called banana mountain!” Squirt exclaimed. Squidgy and Squirt both jumped up and down with happiness and then they saw it. But, sitting temptingly in the middle of all the bananas was a golden banana. It was the most beautiful thing that they had ever seen. They both went for it at once and after a long fight they agreed to half it and they each had a piece each.

When they got back they knew that they didn’t have to worry anymore about getting bananas because every week they could go back to the mountain to get more.

I don’t know

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

  When I was asked by Mr Edwards to write a funny story I didn’t know what to do because I am not good at writing funny stories. What does funny mean?  Does it mean I have to write about a clown, jokes or a Josh and Marshall duo? So, what is funny? I guess everyone finds something funny .Is funny something that makes you laugh or smile? I find lots of things funny but how do you turn them into a story? For me, it always sounds awkward, no matter what I do, it never looks right.  I guess I’m just not the funny type, but I know who is: Marshall and Josh. So if you want something funny,  go to them, not me!

LEGO® is one of the most wide spread toys in the world. It all starts as some tiny plastic granules that are melted down too a liquid and poured into molds shaped into LEGO® bricks and sold to many different stores world wide. Series’  include Agents, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter and even Sponge Bob. Even though it is VERY expensive, it is also great quality and really fun to play with. You can buy it from most stores everywhere. I only recently got a huge set of LEGO® Technic. It,s a large pick up truck truck/ recovery truck. My brother (who many people in my class will know) and I haven’t built it yet and we’ve had it for a few days. I think, there are going to be many more themes and I am looking forward to telling you about them when they come out! Bye for now.   🙂

Guess what my favourite colour is? 😉 Nearly all my wardrobe is filled with pink clothes and accessories! Pink is my favourite colour because it is girly, pretty and bright and cheerful. I wish there was a day where everyone had to wear only pink to School-that would be really easy for me, but not the boys! 😀 Not only are all my clothes pink, but all my make up, too. My room as well is also pink; to make it fully pink I just need to paint the walls bright hot pink. I just LOVE the colour PINK! 😛

MV St. Faith and MV St. Helen

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

MV St Faith (Left) and MV St Helen (Right)

MV St. Faith is a St-Class ferry operated by Wightlink. She is 77 meters long and 17 meters wide. Like all of the other St-Class ferries, she operates on the Portsmouth – Fishbourne route.  MV St. Faith can carry 772 passengers, 142 cars and 12 lorries/coaches. She is the second youngest of the St-Class ferries, after St. Clare.

On 28th May 2010, St. Faith rammed the side of the dock in Portsmouth. This injured two passengers and breached the lower hull. Luckily, the ship didn’t sink, and the passengers got better quickly. On 30th May 2014, a lovely bunch of children from Cricklade went to the Isle of Wight on St. Faith.

MV St Helen is also a St-Class ferry, also operated by Wightlink. She is 75 meters long and 17 meters wide, making her almost identical to St. Faith. She also operates on the Portsmouth – Fishbourne route. She can accommodate 769 passengers, 142 cars and 11 lorries/ coaches.

    She was the largest Isle of Wight ferry until St. Clare entered service in 2001. On 4th July 2014 a wonderful group of children went home to Cricklade onboard St. Helen.

The Tragedy of R.M.S Titanic

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

Today, you will hear of a legend. A disaster that would change the world forever.

It starts in 1903. Two large ships, named Lusitania and Mauretania were ordered by Cunard Line. They were to be the biggest liners ever made. Cunard Line’s biggest rival, White Star Line, decided to combat this by making three ships that were even larger. Henceforth, Olympic, Titanic and Britannic were ordered. Olympic and Titanic were laid down in  Belfast in 1907.

Later in 1911, Olympic and Titanic were finished. Each ship had 16 compartments in the lower decks. If the four front compartments were flooded, the ship could stay afloat. What could puncture more than 4 compartments, anyway?

On Wednesday 10th April 1912, Titanic departed on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York. On board were 2,200 souls. 4 days later, on 14th April, there were the calmest seas in months. At 11:39 at night, Fred Fleet spotted an iceberg in the distance. He immediately told the Captain, and he attempted to turn the ship to the left. Unfortunately, Titanic couldn’t do it. The iceberg created six small gashes along the right side of the hull. Five compartments were breached.

At midnight, the order to launch the  lifeboats was given. Officers only let women and children into the lifeboats.  At first, nobody thought anything was wrong, so they only put minimal people in the lifeboats. This process continued until 02:00 when all of the lifeboats were launched. Over 1500 people were still aboard the sinking vessel.

At 02:17, Titanic‘s stern (Rear end) lifted up into the air and broke away. All of the lucky people in the lifeboats hoped that the stern would stay afloat. But it was just a cruel fate. The stern keeled over and sank at 02:20. The Atlantic was silent. The ‘Unsinkable’ had sunk. Luckily, Titanic had made distress calls, and a small ship named Carpathia was on her way. She arrived at 04:30 and picked up 705 souls. 1500 people had perished.

And that is the legend of Titanic,the most famous maritime disaster in history.
