A blog can be very exciting, it allows people from all over the world to read our work and make comments. We need to remember to follow a few simple rules to stay safe and to get the most out of our blog.

  • Children are to only use their first name when commenting.
  • Parents who leave comments are asked to use their first name only so as not to identify their child. Or post comments as “Harry’s Mum” or “Megan’s Grandfather”.
  • All posts will be checked by school staff before they are published to the blog.
  • All comments are moderated by school staff before they appear on the blog.
  • Always be respectful for other people’s work – be positive if you are going to comment.
  • No text talk – write in full sentences and read your comments back carefully before submitting.

These rules should help to make the blog a safe and exciting home for our work.

Delicious doughnut

 

Mr Fox wants some doughnuts – but he likes to save money whenever he can. He found a coupon in the paper for Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. The coupon was for £1 off a dozen doughnuts. This week they are on sale for £3.99 a dozen without the coupon and £0.35 a piece if you use the coupon. What do you think Mr Fox will do and why?

The offer ends soon though – so please help him make up his mind FAST!

 

The mysterious, old book

 

As I nosed around in the dusty attic, I found – something – under a pile of old rags. Blowing the dust and cobwebs from the cover, I peered closer. It was a book. Ancient, discoloured and oh-so fragile, it lured me in for a closer look…

999 Emergency

on Stingray Street!

The children of Stingray class were set a task of writing and recording a series of episodes on the theme of ’999 Emergency’.

The series called ’999 Emergency’ had to tell stories about a range of emergency incidents set in a local fictional community. Each week the scripts had to resolve the issues to make the listeners feel safe and secure.

Listen to what has been happening on Stingray Street and let us know what you think!

This is a link to the bbc iplayer programme about the role that insects play in our ecosystems. It has some fascinating information in it.

This is a link to the rather more gruesome insect dissection programme which examines the insides of various insects by taking them apart and studying them. Not for the faint hearted and remember – these are scientists who have many years of study behind them.

Choose to watch one or both of the episodes then let me know what you think, the first programme is 30 minutes long – the second is 60 minutes long.  :)
