Looking to the stars

Archive for April, 2011

A short first week back!

It may have only been 3 days, but we managed to pack in a lot of learning!

I enjoyed being interviewed by you all on Thursday and am looking forward to reading my biographies next week!

We have also made a good start on our Space topic – “To Infinity And Beyond!”

We are working on building up our SPACE 100. So far we have a ROCKET car, a STARburst wrapper, and a MILKY WAY wrapper. I look forward to seeing the other items you bring in linked to some aspect of space! Remember, we are trying to reach 100 so we all need to bring in 3 items if we can!

I was very impressed with everyone’s work on our Class Maths on square numbers on Thursday too. You all really got the hang of it and are now really good at recognising square numbers!

Did any of you watch the Royal Wedding on TV? I did and I really enjoyed it! Here is my favourite photo from the day:

Hee hee! I like the contrast of the happy couple and the little flower girl.

Enjoy the rest of your Bank Holiday weekend – there is a May Day fun day in Heigham Park on Monday, perhaps I will see some of you there!

Holiday 100 word Challenge!

Hope you are all having a lovely holiday – I am!

Here is this week’s 100 word challenge for anyone who would like to take part!

This week is going to be easy! It is a picture of Bodiam Castle which is in East Sussex. You can write any story or you could research it and write about something that happened there.As usual you only have 100 words.

This is the chance to write a really creative piece. But it must make sense! Please read through your work BEFORE you post. That way you will make sure that those silly clerical mistakes are removed.

Have fun!

We had lots of fun this week making transient, ephemeral, natural art in the style of Andy Goldsworthy!

Caitlin’s 100 word challenge

I sat on my bed, bored and not happy. I wondered what to do then I thought I could go up to the attic as I had never been up there before as my Parents said it was out of bounds. I walked down the hallway and to the entrance of the attic.

I saw a book in a corner, I picked it up and opened it and all of a sudden I was transported to a strange land and saw a giant pot with legs sticking out of it the pot had a face on it. The pot moved in to attack I screamed, I was defeated.

Lewis’s 100 word challenge

Ben had tons of Lego he made cars, trains and houses .One day he even made a perfect model of himself but then his little sister came in and knocked it over, it’s leg fell off so Ben hid it in a flower pot. “Bed time Ben” called his mum so Ben went to bed. In the morning Ben looked out of the window at the where he had buried the leg, now it had 36 legs sticking out of the top. He went outside to have a closer look, the pot had grown 20 times bigger and had a face.

Alexia’s 100 word challenge homework

I walked round this weird, strange, boring place. I was EXTREMELY tired. I looked on this dusty, rocky pavement and found this strange looking ring.  When I picked it up I felt that it was pulling me somewhere………….

I opened my eyes, I found myself  looking into the eyes of this massive sculpture. Then I realised where I was, I was on the other side of the park…wait..where’s mum and dad…..?!

I satred into this sculpture’s eyes. He asked me

“Who are you, and why are you here?”

I knew I shouldn’t talk to strangers so I ran for it…

josies 100 word challenge

“FINE!” mum shouted after the tenth time I asked to go out. It was Paris after all and she couldn’t really think I couldn’t go out and explore on holiday!!! I walked a long way trying to find a fish and chip shop but I had no luck! Then I saw a sculpture. It had a red angry face and there were legs sticking out of his head. Maybe it represents people being murdered or killed. I felt a bit scared. I suppose its a lot like they’re being swallowed because if you die you have been swallowed by death and you can never come back.
