This week we have been setting up and trying out our new individual blogs. We have been learning about writing interesting posts, good comments and also about safety online. We got to choose our own template/layout/theme and an avatar. We have already left some comments for each other. Mrs P moderates everything before it is published which is good. .It is fun and we hope that everyone likes reading them. We are very new to blogging so it will take some practise. We have already made some mistakes but we are learning how to edit our own writing. Hopefully our parents and families will read them and leave comments for us! You can find all of our blogs on the Home page of our P4-7e website under the globe and flags...just click on the Our Blogs Button! Thanks.
We had an amazing morning today. A lady called Pat came to school and showed us how to make balloon buggies. We had to listen really carefully to instructions first.
Then we got to try them out! We were quite accurate in our investigating and our results showed that it did make a difference what materials you used, what size the wheels were and how short or long the chassis was. It also made a big difference depending on how big you blew up the balloon!!! All of these factors affected the distance the Balloon Buggies travelled. Later on we went outside and also discovered that the surface the Buggies were travelling along made a difference too. They went much slower and less far on grass than they did on the wooden gym floor.
This story was written by Mr Patterson who is really enjoying your stories and asked me if he could have a go! He didn't get time to finish it so you need to send some suggestions on how the story should end!! The best one will be added to the storybird. Send your ideas through the comments button. He says he would love ideas from all over the world!
We had a Macmillan tea this afternoon to raise money for and awareness of cancer research. Lots of parents and friends came to support and enjoyed an afternoon of live entertainment, kindly donated home baking and cups of tea. These are the other three classes performing. They did really well. We wrote and performed a Harvest Rap to the Rhythm of 'We will Rock You'.
We are a team of 21 writers, artists, scientists, mathematicians, problem solvers, friends, musicians, photographers and many more things... varying in age from 7 to 44!
