1)  When the girls tell Mr Pebbles that Nina thought she'd heard aliens, try to describe what Mr Pebbles would feel and why.

2)  'Nina just had to love it like she did.'  Why was Ada doubtful that Nina would love the radio once she had got it working?

3)  On page 30, can you identify a danger, not linked to aliens, to talking to strangers on a radio?

4)  Page 32 (no number on the page so find 33 and go back one) Draw a thought bubble for each character at this point.

As you listen to and read part 2, watch out for relative clauses.  Note down 4 relative clauses you see and the pages they are on.

A relative clause is extra information added to a sentence starting with a relative pronoun like 'who' or 'which' or 'that'.

Alison, who had been waiting for me, was getting bored.   'Who had been waiting for me' is the relative clause.

Skyping Kendra Part 2

The year 5 children have now completed their writing about Kendra's life in the outback   in Australia.  Today, she picked the four winning entries who received an Australian road sign as a prize.   Kendra announced the winners live and also Punit read his 'haunted shack' writing to her which was based in the Australian outback.  Emily and Roxanne brought in Lamingtons that they had made from Kendra's recipe and they were very tasty!  We have enjoyed the conclusion of our Odyssey project and look forward to Discoveries next term.

Skyping Kendra


The children have been involved with a project linking us with the outback in Australia.  We have been Skyping Kendra who lives 1 and a half hour's drive from the nearest village!  They have been fascinated to find out about her life on a cattle station and we have used email to gain further information.  Now, they are writing her 'odyssey' as an information text.  The best five from each class will be sent to Kendra and she will select a winner.



Visit to Marwell

We had a great time at Marwell Zoo.  Please scroll down to see our picture gallery.

Playground River


We started our new year off with a bang by investigating how rivers are formed.  The children were let loose with a hose and watering can to try to recreate what happens on a tarpaulin.  We used chairs, lunch crates and trays to recreate the landscape and used multilink to look at the movement of objects in a river.
