Lincolnshire Show 2019 :)

Yesterday on the 19th of June we went to Lincolnshire show for a school trip. I was in Mr. Pollard’s group with my friends Harry Burton and Elliot Barlow. In the morning I got out of bed and got ready for school and got all my kit to suit the day ahead.

So I arrived at school had a slice of toast and waited in the hall and waited for everybody to arrive. But then when everybody had arrived we got into are groups and headed to the bus to start this 1 hour and 45 minute journey.

On the bus I was sat next to a friend and we played a few games together. The journey was long and after that we finally arrived at this prehistoric place. As we went through the gates and we already saw a load of people. But firstly we went and looked at the timetable board and it looked like it was going to be a very busy show.

After that we went our first stall and it was a wild woodcraft area were we were taught how to survive in the wild and create precious resources. But then we moved on to this beekeeping stall and saw people in with the bees. After that we moved on to the sheep showing ring and some of the sheep were going mental.

But then we into the tent which had the sheep that have been showed or not. Then we moved onto the pigs and some of them need to go on a diet because they are massive they are bigger than miniature Shetlands. Then we went to go and see the horses and they were doing a competition and there were mainly cobs there but there was a lippzana.

After that we went to the agricultural machinery and some of the tractors we absolutely massive and we went to a John Deere combine and this lady from the news came and filmed us and we were on TV and we were superstars and took up all of the spotlight. We were at the start of the film and the end film. And I was well proud that they picked me.

After that we went to nationwide and painted our own piggy banks to take home with us. My piggybank was painted blue all over. After that we went and had dinner and whilst we were having dinner we watched the stunt biking and they were doing some crazy stunts.

Then we went and carried on walking and we next went to the kid’s zone and some people got an ice cream with their own money and they were expensive. After that we went to the exhibition hall and my sister was there so I tried to avoid her and I did. Whilst we were in the exhibition hall we had a little play on the straw bales. But then we saw super spud which was a man dressed in a costume and next to him was the Lincoln city imp mascot.

After that we went to the sports zone and look at all the cool sports stuff available there. But sadly we couldn’t go on anything they were taken up by other people that had come to the show. After that we went to the countryside ring and next to it was theses giant Galapagos tortoises and they were big they were about the size of a Falabella.

Then we went and saw the owls, eagles and vultures. The person that was holding the stall allowed us to touch one of their smaller residents which was a Barn owl. This Barn owl was called Lily and she was so adorable and so fluffy it was like a small white and brown bit of fluff. And whilst she was going round I spotted a vulture and it looked quite menacing as it turned and looked at you.

But then we looked at the time and it was almost time to go but we hadn’t picked up our piggybanks so we made a quick dash back to nationwide. On the way we had to push past a load of people and finally we got there. Then once we had them we had to run back to the watchtower which was quite a long way away. We had to push past the people again and then we arrived at our destination a little bit late.

But we weren’t last to get back so we played with our toys and had a whale of a time. Then when the final group arrived back we headed for the bus and got back with our partners and get set for the long journey ahead. On the bus on the way back me and my partner were playing numerous games. Then when we arrived back at school I thought what a day it has been.

Testing reflective clothing

Oak class were proposed this question what is the best material that reflects in the light. This experiment was to make a brand of coat/hoodie that is safe to use during the winter.

 

We did it by first brainstorming some ideas on what we could do. Our team came up with a tube that is black and covered the bottom as well. So we did that straight away and got a result from our hard work. After we came to the testing of our project that we had been working on.  

 

Our results were that this metallic gold was the best thing out of everything else that we tested. About 50 percent of the objects we were given reflected in the light. So we had a hard choice of what to use as our material. But we had a slight dilemma that the fabrics that were the best were to uncomfortable to wear. We managed to figure out that we could just print the best colour for it onto our coat/hoodie.

 

The things that went well was the way the team got along with each other and the level of depth we went to. The other thing we did well was that our experiment was a major success and it was very accurate. The things we could improve on is the distance away from the object because we were the closest people there. There is another thing I would change is the circuit that we made to produce the light it was far to complex. The main clothing item we came up with was a hoodie that has reflective paint markings on it.

Romulus and Remus

Romulus and Remus 

 

This happened in 750BCE and this is a story about the family of Rome. In Alba Longa in central Italy the goddesses son went there when the city of Troy when it burned down in 1250BCE. Aeneas gave life to two twins called Romulus and Remus then Aeneas was captured by the Greeks. There Uncle was wicked???? and wanted to be King. There Uncle ordered his slave to carry Romulus and Remus in a trough and chuck them in the river Tiber. 

 

The two babies were stuck in a thorny bush and a she-wolf rescued them. The she-wolf cared for them and looked after them. The shepherd found them and looked after them till adulthood. They went to the bush that saved there lives and built a city round it. They both became strong leaders and people flocked into the new city. When the two twins found out that there Uncle???? tried to kill???? them they killed???? him.

 

They expanded the city to 7 hills around the river Tiber. They each wanted to rule the city because it was massive. Romulus waited and Remus left and Romulus ploughed a line so Remus could not get in. When Remus came back he was told that if he crossed the line he would get killed????. Remus was outraged???? and he leapt across the line and attacked Romulus. Romulus won the battle and his brother lied dead???? on the floor. Romulus then named the city Rome.

Supersnake.io

coolyesangelsmileySupersnake.io is a brilliant game to play at home and you can play against your friends. If you are at the top of the leader board (also the highest level) you get to be the king of the match and to be the king of the match is a brilliant experience and you can eat everybody in the game. Also if you get to a certain level you get to get some new skins.

 

So to 'level up' you have to eat somebody a level or two down from you or eat a certain amount of dots. And just to say my account is anygamelover101 also my Roblox account as well. But the object of the game is to become the King Snake (also you are a snake) and stay on the game as long as possible and unlock new skins to complete the game.coolyesangelsmiley

Snow day!!!

coolwinkcheekyOn Wednesday 28th of February and it was a SD (SD means snow day) and this is the start of a snowy story (at my house).

7:30am on Wednesday, I wake up and find out it is snowing outside and I rushed straight to breakfast. For breakfast I had a quick little bowl of cereal and rapidly got dressed and brushed my teeth and legged it outside.

Crunch! Crunch! Crunch! as my feet plodded through the snow and then I heard something “ Thomas wait up” it was just Amber. My sister and I started to make a colossal snowman and when we finished we called it Jerry.

After a while, Amber and I go and have a giant snowball fight and I was the champion and every single shot hit Amber. After, Amber and I go and follow some tracks laid out by a hare but right at the end of my field the hare was attacked by something (poor hare).

Next I build a medium sized snowman and it was stood right next to the enormous snowman. Meanwhile, I go and get the sledge and I jump in it first and Amber pulls me around but then she trips over and I smash straight through Jerry and into the hedge.

One minute later…, I am finally out of the hedge and I tell Amber to carry on pulling the sledge with me in it. Whilst Amber is pulling me around I create another snowman and run that over to (just to say I am not vicious).

Sadly, I have to go inside and warm up but just to say this snow day was epically awesome (dream come true).coolwinkcheeky
