This week for homework we have been practicing our writing skills and getting feedback from people. Getting feedback helps us improve our skills. Mya and Fran have sent me two pieces of writing this week (thanks Mya and Fran). Can you give them some feedback about their writing. Remember we like to here what is good and what we can improve on.


Bella is a soft and gentle cat, but a hunter too.
Bella means beautiful in French.
This little girl is a black cat with white splodges.
Her green eyes are like jewels with black slits.
She is the best cat a human could have.

Book Review: The 39 Clues
The best books I have read are the 39 clues series. This is the story of an eleven year old boy (Dan), and his sister (Amy), on a hunt for the 39 clues. Unfortunately, others are also looking for the 39 clues, and some of them are trained agents. With the help of their dead grandmother, Dan and Amy find their way into first place.
This book has a big vocabulary and lets you imagine all you want. It is suitable for both boys and girls but will keep you on the edge of your seat!

Imagine a Butterfly with eight wings
Imagine a spider with four legs
Imagine an Elephant as weak as a Mouse
Imagine a Mouse as strong as an Elephant
Imagine a human that lives under water
Imagine an Octopus that lives on land
Imagine a soldier covered in fur
Imagine a Dog covered in skin
Imagine flying in green sky
Imagine walking on blue grass
Look at all these weird  Possibilities

London Olympics 2012

The Summer Olympics are due to start in Week 2 of this term. We are hoping to have our own official Olympic opening on Friday.

Have a look at the promotional video for this event. Do you recognise any of the people used in the video. Why do you think they used these people?
How does the music inspire you?

What makes these lyrics so inspirational? Check out the lyrics in the post below.

Here is a 2012 Olympic Music Video - Muse's London 2012 song - Survival

What do they do in this video that gets their message across? How is it different to the other video?

How do they convey some of the Olympic Ideals?

Holiday Poem

How is the holiday going Room 5. I have another dose of flu so have spent the day on the couch playing on the computer.

Not that the weather is great for being outside either!

I thought I would start a holiday poem and you can add your verse in the comments and I will post it up or you can email me an exciting holiday picture to cheer me up :)


Holidays are great
When you can play
Outside in the sun
Lying on your tum

Holidays are great
When you go to interesting places
Riding the waves 
And hiding in caves

Holidays are great 
Because you get to see different people
Family and friends
Hope it never ends (thanks Sam and Elizabeth)

Holidays are great
Because you get to do lots of fun things
Hills to ski down 
Mini golf in town (thanks Lucy and Anne)
