The Lincolnshire Show 2019


On Wednesday 19th June 2019, we went to the Lincolnshire Show. It was about an hour and a half drive form school. It was 9:00 when we left school and we got there at 10:30.

The first thing we did was go to some farm animals there was sheep, goats, ducks and a donkey. Then we went to the RBST (Rare Breeds Survival Trust). Inside, there were rare goats, sheep and alpacas. Next we went to a Stone Age part. They showed us what people used in the Stone Age. (I thought it was cool) they had stuff made of stone and bone. Afterwards, we went to a beekeepers tent. They had different honey and bees there.

At that point it was 11:00. We were kind of hungry at this point. So we walked around the animals to take our minds off food. So we went down one of the paths off the clock tower. There was lots of food stalls so it didn’t help. Then we went to the sheep and pig tents where they were. Most of the pigs were huge. Then we stopped in front of the horse stadium. They were galloping around the showcase stadium. Then we set off the go see the classic cars.

We stopped at a couple of different stalls on the way there. We stopped at an army stall and looked at their machines. There was a couple of military trucks there. Then we looked around and found the classic cars. So we walked around then found some Lamborghinis so we looked at them inside and out.  We also stumbled upon some Ferraris and porches. Then after we found some Tanks.

  Then some of our group needed the toilet. So we waited for them. After we had a flapjack biscuit. We walked over to the RAF stall, then we talked to the man in charge and he told us about what their uniform does. It was quite interesting. Then one of the Sergeants showed us a magic trick.

After that, we went to a shopping part of the Lincolnshire show. We didn’t buy anything there.

Afterwards, we went to a police tent where they showed us their drones. One drone takes 2160p photos and the other one records videos at 2160p. There was an old Victorian prison they made into a museum.

After that, we looked through the Air Ambulance and Fire Fighters stalls.

After, we got chipssmiley. Then we went to the Waggy Tails Shop. Where I got something for my dog, Flo. Then we just watched the police dogs. Then we left.

This is the end of the blog, bye.

Science Blog

Hello this is a science blog about our science topic Sight or Vision. We have been looking at sight for a few weeks and did an experiment I will talk about now.



This is when we design our experiment using our resources of: Black card, tape, scissors and circuits for a dim light. The point of the experiment was to find the most reflective item for clothing and make a jacket/ coat out of the materials. My team decided to make a black tube out of card and secure it with tape. The rest of the team made the tube while I designed the jacket. My design was a colourful pattern all over it.




This is today I finished my hoodie and I’m now typing this. Bye.

Romulus and Remus, Roman Myths & Legends

Romulus and Remus

By Alfie H and Corin Jackson


In Aba Longa, Central Italy, where the Greek goddess Aphrodite had fled Troy after the burning of Troy in 1250 BCE. Aeneas married a beautiful princess. Also beginning a reign of kings, he had twins he called Romulus and Remus. However, their wicked uncle Amulius, wanted to be king, so he ordered a slave to put Romulus and Remus in a trough, then put them in the river Tiber to kill them. Luckily, they were found by a she-wolf. The she-wolf raised them until a shepherd found them. The shepherd and his wife took care of the twins until they were adults. Romulus and Remus decided to make a city near the thorn bush that had saved their life. They were strong leaders, and people flocked in from around the world to see Romulus and Remus’ city. When the brothers learned that their Uncle Amulius tried to kill them, they killed him. Eventually, the unnamed city spread along the 7 hills along the river Tiber, but as it got larger, Romulus and Remus began to argue. There was lots of jealousy between  them and eventually Romulus waited until Remus left the city on a business trip, then ploughed a line along the border of the city. When Remus came back, his brother told him that if he crossed the line, he would die. Remus was outraged at his brother’s threat and jumped over the line, attacking Romulus viciously. Romulus quickly responded, and the brothers fought savagely until one of them died. The victor was Romulus, and named the city ‘Rome’ after himself, until one day he disappeared in a storm and somehow became a demigod.
