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!!!!

Yew Class LOVES Brainpop

Today we got the very exciting chance to talk to MOBY HIMSELF (through Skype)!!!!! However because he had left his voice box at home and unfortunately Tim was out of the country we had to chat to Eylan who works with Moby (“he is very funny” quote from Charlie). Moby is a very cheeky robot!!!!!! But we still love him!!! He was running around the office hiding from Eylan!! Unfortunately Tim was out of the country so he couldn’t join us!!
We asked him some questions and they were . . .
Do you like Brainpop?
What is your favourite Brainpop video?
Do you enjoy making the videos? Is it hard work?
Do you enjoy working with Tim?
Do you like working at Brainpop?
Will you be making any more videos?

He answered all our questions and even asked us some!!!
He said he loves working at Brainpop because they get to learn new things when they make the videos – which is great because when we watch the videos WE learn new things too!!!
He loves working with Tim because he gets to play pranks on him which are really funny – you should watch the sun protection one to see what we mean!!
We would like to take the chance to thank Moby (and Eylan of course) for giving us the chance to talk to them – It was a great way to finish off our half term!!!!! And we can’t wait to watch more videos after half term. Miss Deane says if we are well behaved this afternoon we can watch the Boogey video before we go home . . . .
We even asked Miss Deane to add Brainpop to our list of links so we can see him at home!!!!!!!

Yew Class visit the Rainforest!!!

Keep checking out our blog we will be adding photos, videos and much more about this magical rainforest that has appeared in our classroom!

Miss Deane with the help of her Mum and Mrs Bate (and her daughter -thank you Megan!!) have made a rainforest in the quiet area of our classroom. They put up all our art work. We have made mobiles which have pictures of animals we think you might find in the rainforest. We have also made up some new flowers and they have gone up on the wall too.
When we first walked into the rainforest it was all dark like a real rainforest. We read a story called The Vanishing Rainforest. It is about a family who are trying to survive in the rainforest even though people are destroying it.
We can’t wait to add more interesting things and learn even more about the rainforest

Here is some fantastic work Jake produced all about the different layes of the rainforest. Hasn’t he done well? Busy and noisy by Jake

-Brainpop UK pops into Yew class

This morning we watched some Brain Pop videos. We thought they were really good. They were very funny and we liked the voices. We love Moby he is our favourite because he was really beepy! We like the blog video because we have blog and we like that Moby showed Tims underwear 🙂
Miss Deane went to a special meeting last night with lots of other teachers and she got a really cool t-shirt. She said it is a very specail t-shirt. Here are some photos of her wearing it with some of our class – can you see Moby on the big screen?
