Y6’s new topic is extinct animals and evolution we have been learning so far about all the extinct  animals like the dodo, passenger pigeons and other animals that may not be extinct but endangered like the giant panda, and the snow leopard.

Year 5 graffiti

Friday, 13 February 2015

In year 5 we have been reading the book Scribble Boy because our topic is graffiti so we decided it would be a great idea to make small stop motion movies to do with Scribble Boy. Most of the class were using Lego and some people used play dough. We used Zu3 stop motion on the laptop and connected little cameras so we could record the Lego or play dough. Then after we had done the stop Motion we printed it out and made little comic strips with the pictures we got that printed out.

Journal entry

New York in trouble!

By Jack Timoney-6EB

Today I am so excited because it’s the first day of school but I have to cover up that I have superpowers! At school I am in year 2BC and I have to wear special gloves so that all of my powers don’t take control of me. When I am at home I have to stay in my own room so I don’t hurt my brother, Luca and my sister, Kate. It is quite annoying because I am putting them at risk, badly.

The next day my dad said “In New York there is trouble and we have to help save it!”

Can you believe it?

So off we flew in our private jet, to New York. When we were on the jet I found out that Luca and Kate have powers but there not as advanced as mine.

We had landed after a seventeen hour flight and didn’t see the teleport button until we landed!

It was chaos when we got to the center of New York. All the windows were smashed and they were wrecked. Then brainiac appeared from nowhere; it made everything even worse!

“Yes that’s right earthling, scream!” Brainiac screamed in a weak voice. ”You will be mine.”

“We have to stop him!” I said in a powerful voice. They combined their power to stop the evil brainiac.

Did it work?


And the winners are…
