Sorry its taken me so long to put these on the blog but there was NO internet connection – I really don’t know how the Victorians managed with it!!  I love sharing my adventures with everyone!  I would like to thank all the year 6s who looked after me, especially Kayleigh and Bart who were very caring!  I would love to come and spend a day with Mimosa class again . . . Maybe even go swimming with them 🙂

The effect of our blog has hit home!!!!

Miss Deane had to add this post on this afternoon after one of her class said “thank you for making us famous” (Charlie).  Our blog has been showed to loads of different people and we have learnt so much through it.  We have found  really cool websites, which we have had great fun on.  Thank you to everybody who has commented, made suggestions and generally made our blog what it is – a great place to share everything we find.  We are so proud of ourselves and our blog so thank you all!!!! 

Love Yew Class

Robin Price visits Yew

We had the excitement of the author Robin Price visiting our school today.  He did a work shop with all our year 3 children, where we all got to be authors writing Roman stories.  Visit our blog tomorrow to see what the children thought of their day as an author.

Check out this website for more information and to see what other books are available.

On Thursday Robin Price visited year 3. In the morning he told Yew and Ash Class about his book Spartipuss.  He read some of the story to us.  It was dramatic and funny.  We really enjoyed it!! Some people spotted another book called Boudicat, and it turns out that there is a whole series of books based in Roman time but they are not Romans they are cats!  After that we played a game that tested our knowledge on the Romans.  We spilt the group into two teams and there was a spinner that had 4 categories (CATegory!!)  If the spinner landed on one of the categories that was the type of question you had.  If you got the question right you got a point, if not the other team could try!  The two teams were the Emperors and the Gladiators.  The Emperors won with a score of 4.

In the afternoon we started our own Roman story’s.  We had choose 2 Roman names, 2 locations, 2 or 3 objects.  We tried to make our stories funny and interesting like Robin’s books.  We are writing some more stories in our literacy class and hope to send them to him to look at!

Robin Price is a funny author, who is very nice and friendly and his books are funny too!  Buttons met him too and wants to read all his books!!!

Buttons and Fergal

Oh my goodness Yew class you won’t believe what I did to finish off the half term ?  Miss Deane had a BBQ and invited lots of her friends, I was feeling a bit left out so she said I could invite one of mine.  As I am going to Ironbridge with Kierans big sister and year 6, I thought I would invite another bear who is going!!  FERGAL from Willow class!!  I think he is my best bear friend now!!  We had a great evening, had some fizzy drinks and even got to BBQ some food!  We had to be very careful not to burn ourselves !!!
