Please drop by our class blog and leave us a comment. The prompt this week was …as the flame flickered and then went out…..

Here are just three of our stories.

Big Big Trouble – by Wonder

I came home with a lighter I got from Dunnes Stores. I started playing with my lighter. I put it on my paper and my paper burned. I kept on getting paper and burning it. I got strong paper and it didn’t burn. Instead fire went everywhere. There was a weird green flame at the back. I was trying to catch the green flame. But as the flame flickered and then went out it went downstairs to the sitting room.
“What’s this?“said my mum curiously.
She came up to my room.
” Where did this fire come from?” said mum to me.

Looks like I’m in BIG trouble.

Yellowstone – by Josh

We went on a camping trip of a lifetime. Deep into the wilderness of Yellowstone National Park. I had the greatest adventure of my life. We went canoeing in the rivers, caught fish and cooked it but it didn’t taste too good!! We sat by the camp fire at night and told stories. On our last night it rained really heavily. My dad had to light the fire inside our tent. It was a really bad idea, the tent caught fire and as the flame flickered and then went out we had no cover and all around us in the bushes we could see big orange luminous eyes watching us getting closer…

The Burning School  – by Alex

It was Monday morning. We were out on yard. It was the best day ever because our teacher was out and she forgot to give us work. The teacher who was splitting us up, to go to different classes, gave us barely any work. Suddenly, the fire alarm went off, every one though it was a drill, but it wasn’t. The teachers ran out with their roll calls and told us to line-up. Some stupid boys were having a farting contest. A while later as the last flame flickered and went out the children where very happy. “HALF DAY FOR US” they said.

Special Showcase for Amy!

This is Amy’s story, based on a photograph, she has won a Special Showcase.

This is a stairway for boys, NOT girls!! Because in my opinion boys are big pains in the butts!!

When they annoy you, you bring them to the stairway and send them up, especially little brothers.

This can happen at any time. When they go up everything they need is there. Video games, sweets, pizza, fizzy drinks, Xbox 360, PlayStation, foozeball tables etc….

Adult boys aka men can go up to. This is so the women and girls of the home to have peace & quiet and spend quality time together.

I love sending my dad and little brother up the stairway to the sky for pains in the butt!!!

Sound Experiments

We were learning about sound this week in Science.

We carried out two experiments. In the first one we banged a tuning fork (which was then vibrating) and immediately put the tuning fork into a cup of water. The vibrations made the water ‘fizz’ out of the cup.

In the next experiment we banged loudly on  a saucepan. Beside it we had placed some sugar on a stretched piece of cling film. The sound vibrations from the saucepan made the sugar jump!

We learned lots about sound:

Sound needs a medium (eg air) to travel. So in space there is no sound because there is no air. (by Sean).

Sound travels in sound waves. (By Sophie)

Sound can travel through doors, water, windows and wood. (by Shane).

When you hear a sound your eardrum vibrates (by Katie).

The bones in your ears are call the hammer, the anvil and the stirrup. They are the smallest bones in your body. (by Ryan and Liam).

Bats use echolocation (and they are not blind!). by Leah

There was a boy in the USA who learned to use echolocation. He was able to roller skate, skateboard, play football and ride a bike, even though he was blind. (By Oliwia)

Sound bounces back when it has no-where else to go, this is called an echo (by Great).

Some sounds are so high pitched that older people can’t hear them, but younger people can. Shops use this to keep teenagers away from the front of their shops. (By Wonder).

Sound moves but you can’t see it. (By Josh)

There is fluid in your ears that helps to keep you balanced. (By Sean)

Sound can travel around corners, but light can’t. (By Liam)

    I know you’re needed!

My visit to Ireland has been wonderful as part of #100wcEmeraldTour.

The one thing I’ve found out is how important your comments are to our young writers. They have a purpose for writing when they know that you are reading and commenting on their pieces so

PLEASE COMMENT!

They also love being selected for the showcase. It means so much to them and they are often awarded them in school assemblies. Please send me your recommendations!

The prompt we would like your comments on was a photograph of some recycle bins on the beach at Weymouth in Dorset UK.
