Take a look at Marty's!

Mmmm chocolate! By Marty Worsnop


I see you sitting there,

On the cupboard shelf.

Inviting and glistening glare,

I grab you from the shelf.


One bite, two bite, three bite, four,

Mmm chocolate I want more.

Its caramel it creamy,

Mmm chocolate you're dreamy!


I have eaten half the bar,

What a greedy pig I am.

I can't stop eating its bizarre,

Chocolate in my mouth I cram.


One bite, two bite, three bite, four,

Mmm chocolate I've got no more.

Maybe mum will go to the shop,

Mmm chocolate I ate the lot!!

This week in science we have been investigating thermal insulation.
This was our investigation prompt...

What do you think?

Theo used a wrapped ice cube to help him to investigate this.
He thought that the snowman in a coat would melt fastest because coats are meant to keep us warm. 
He predicted that an ice cube that was wrapped up would take a shorter time to melt than an unwrapped one. 
Take a look at Theo's findings...

This week we have been planing our dream holidays. 
There has been some incredible work completed on our Google Classroom!

Theo wrote a diary entry of a single day from the holiday:

Sunday 7th February 2021

It's nearly my bedtime while I am writing this. Today has been a tough one, as we went on a long walk. My fitbit says I have done about 30,000 steps today. 


It was a new morning and I knew what was coming, I felt tired already even though I hadn't even been anywhere yet. As I got out of the bed, I had a weird backache; this didn't last for long, but it did hurt at the time. Once everyone in the room was awake, we went for our breakfast. It was actually really nice as I had the special breakfast of the day, which included a corn wrap with lettuce, cheese and tomato. 


As we were about to get into the car, one of the hotel staff members kindly gave us a lunch box for me and my sister. On the journey to the geysers, it was really hot, so all of us opened our windows. Minutes later, a big rumbling car came past and everyone started coughing from the dust. I knew everyone else didn't enjoy the car ride too much, but I loved seeing the huge majestic mountains which surrounded and looked down at me. Because of all the dust in our faces, we decided to put the air conditioning on instead, which felt much cooler than our windows being open. 


Dad stopped the car, which felt like the middle of nowhere! As dad finished his long and awkward parking session, my sister and I groaned as we exited the car; by the look of it, we had a long walk ahead of us. About an hour later, we finally reached the geysers. As we got close to them, we just could stop holding our noses as the eggy aroma filled our nostrils. The windy air impacted the geysers stray, which I thought was mesmerising, though everyone else was trying to avoid the spray of the hot smelly water. 


Another tiring hour later, we got to the car. When we got inside, me and my sister opened the lunch boxes and my parents ate their awful looking coleslaw salads, which put me off my sandwiches. We set off and drove further and further into the Atacama Desert and its hot, dry Chilean weather. 


We arrived at the animal park and the car was screaming with joy. We went into the main building and a kind friendly man showed us where to go. He showed us outside and followed a trail; between us was a fence covered in sharp barbed wire. Just ahead of us you could see these llama looking creatures, the man told us their name, but I could barely pronounce it! Then we saw a small lake surrounded by pink, feathery flamingos, all standing on one leg. As we got to the end of the trail, we saw something that we didn't expect, penguins! Shortly after that, we got back to the building and they gave us a link to their website, which my mum can't stop looking at. 


Later that night, we for the first time, visited a proper Chilean restaurant called Conchila's Restuarante. I had some Chilean Empanadas, but had no idea what anyone else had, as I did not recognise any of the food at the time. For pudding, the waiter gave us a chocolate square. 


My dad and sister were crying for their hotel beds, but my mum and I went stargazing instead.



Drew used a spreadsheet to help him to work out the cost of his holiday...

Take a look at Abigail's super writing about Eritrea that she completed for our dream holiday work on our Google Classroom.

Extravagant Eritrea

Eritrea is a moderately small yet exceptionally enthralling province situated in the Horn of Africa with it's ports facing the alluring Red Sea. It has urban and suburban areas and is known to have many scrumptious dishes,  intriguing journeys in history, and some  exhilarating sports.  Holding 6.38 million people, they are a bubbly, welcoming and lovely-to-be-around bunch of people. It is packed with picturesque views, intelligent agriculture and delightful people.In this report you will discover pompous facts about Eritrea's long forgotten history, awesome verities about the sport there and reliable facts about the citizens.

Aksum- An Ancient Kingdom

Eritrea has had a long and successful journey in history. In the early centuries Eritrea was apart of a triumphant civilisation called Aksum, Aksum was the name of a city and a kingdom which is essentially modern-day northern Eritrea (Tigray province) and it's neighbour Ethiopia. Research shows that Aksum was a major naval and trading power from the 1st to the 7th centuries C.E. As a civilization it had a profound impact upon the people of Egypt, southern Arabia, Europe and Asia, all of whom were visitors to its shores, and in some cases were residents. Aksum developed a civilization and empire whose influence, at its height in the 4th and 5th centuries C.E., extended throughout the regions lying south of the Roman Empire, from the fringes of the Sahara in the west, across the Red Sea to the inner Arabian desert in the east. The Aksumites developed Africa's only indigenous written script, Ge'ez. They traded with Egypt, the eastern Mediterranean and Arabia. Despite its power and reputation—it was described by a Persian writer as one of the four greatest powers in the world at the time—very little is known about Aksum. Written scripts existed, but no histories or descriptions have been found to make this African civilization come alive.

Ardent Athletes

Eritrea has always had a passion in sport from the working wannabes to the prosperous professional. In fact football and cycling are the most popular sports in Eritrea. In recent years, Eritrean athletes have also seen increasing success in the international arena.
Cycling has a long tradition in Eritrea and was first introduced during the colonial period.The Tour of Eritrea, a multi-stage cycling event, is held annually since 1946 throughout the country. The national cycling teams of both men and women are ranked first on the African continent, and ranked amongst one of the best cycling nations in the world. The Eritrea national cycling team has experienced a lot of success, winning the African continental cycling championship several years in a row. In 2013, the women's team won the gold medal in the African Continental Cycling Championships for the first time, and for the second time in 2015 and third time in 2019.
Football in Eritrea is related to the sport most popular in this African country. After being under Ethiopian control, Eritrea gained its independence in 1991 and in 1998 the country became a member of FIFA. The Eritrea national football team represents Eritrea in men's international football and it is controlled by the Eritrean National Football Federation. It is nicknamed the Red Sea Boys. It has sadly never qualified for the finals of the FIFA World Cup or the Africa Cup of Nations. Local side Red Sea FC are the main supplier for the national team. The team represents both FIFA and Confederation of African Football.
 
Citizens Of Eritrea
In Eritrea there are a whopping 6.38 million citizens? Magnificently there is 9 ethnics in Eritrea. They are Tigrenya, Bilen, Afar, Saho, Rashaida, Kunama, Tigre, Nara and Hedareb. They all have their own individual language.In fact 55% of Eritreans speak Tigrinya, 40% speak Tigre, 4% speak Afar and 3% speak Saho. Also English and Italian are widely known across the region, whilst 100,000 people speak Arabic. Also many of the people residing in Eritrea dedicate their lives to God and of those people are 50% Christian and 47% are muslim. Those two religions are the two major religions nationwide as they are across the globe. In the main, Eritrea is jam- packed with lovely and welcoming people no matter who they are or what they believe!!!
 
Over-all, Eritrea is a phenomenal place to be with an interesting industrial past, an ardent thrive in sports and a place full of joyous, sublime people. I hope this report will  not make you like Eritrea but love it. :)

Dear diary,

It has now been 2 years since we moved here. Leaving Earth was tough, but we are beginning to feel more at home with every single week that passes.

When we came to our new home, we were allowed to bring everything with us from our Earth homes. It still feels a bit strange though. Life without gravity really takes some getting used to!

Can you continue the diary?

What is gravity? Can you include descriptions of what it is like to live without it?

Where is it that you now live? How is it different from your previous life? How do you spend your time? Do you prefer living in your new home? 

Can you include an image of where you live now?


Madison's Story

Take a look at Madison's story!
She used the last challenge piece as her opener...

The Great House had many hidden treasures. As a 10-year-old girl, many of the rooms were out of bounds for Elsa, but her desire for adventure often got the better of her…

She peeked back over shoulder to check that the coast was clear. She could hear one of the butlers clattering around in the kitchens at the far end of the hall; no one knew she was there.

She carefully turned the ornate, golden door handle, hearing the mechanism inside clunk, and eased the heavy, wooden door open just enough to slip inside the room.

Immediately, Elsa was bathed in light as it poured down from the circular windows in the ceiling. She could see dust dancing in the beams of sunlight.

With a flutter of excitement inside her chest, she strode confidently into the centre of the room, her shoes click-clacking off the chessboard-like floor. She loved this library – it felt like she was 'in' history. How many lords and ladies had graced this great room? It has stood here for centuries, and Elsa doubted that little, if anything, had changed over the years.

Elsa loved reading, but that wasn't why she had come to the library. She approached one of the golden orbs lined up along the centre of the library floor, and carefully placed her finger on the top. It had worked last time. Would it work again? She longed for the magic to happen, and closed her eyes in silent prayer…

 Elsa open her eyes; she had been transported into one of the books! She wondered which book it would be this time. She felt a shudder run down her spine, she was filled with excitement and fear. She looked around and noticed a litter boy sat in the garden of the grand, palace grounds. She tiptoed over to him. He was crying. He was dressed in what looked like olden day clothes, she wondered what year she was in? She then looked down at herself and realised she was wearing a beautiful, royal gown. 'Could I be a princess?' she asked herself.

 

She said to the boy 'what year are we in'. the boy said '1921'. She said I am from 2020 the boy was shocked Elsa said 'where are we in the world 'he said London 'she said I am from America.  she said 'who am I' he said 'the most royal princess in the world '. She had always dreamed of being a Princess!!

Suddenly she heard crowds of people clapping, she looked around and they were clapping for her! She felt embarrassed, no one had ever clapped for her. She felt her cheeks going red as she stood on the balcony. I could get used to life as a princess she thought.

'Elsa! Elsa!' she awoke suddenly. 'Elsa, you know you are not allowed in there!' It was her mum, she looked angry. She was back in 2020 sat in the middle of the room. Well I guess that was the end of being a princess! She couldn't wait till her next adventure!!!!!!

It came from the sea, calmly at first. An enormous, slithering tentacle slowly oozing its way over the top of the sea wall, exploring the metal and concrete shapes with suckers the size of your front door.

Then, as more and more people came, and shrieks and cries of alarm filled the air, the creature became angry. All hell broke loose…

In an almighty tangle of limbs and water and buildings and people, the beast came violently exploding out of the frothing water. The normally sturdy metal supports of the buildings groaned under the extreme weight of the gigantic tentacles crushing them. Panic. Complete panic set in.

But where had the creature come from? What did it want? How could anybody stop it?

There wasn't time for people to think. Only to run…

Can you create the monster?

Now try to write the rest of the story!
