Dear Trisha Neal,
We have found out that reptiles do have scales or have a bony external plate such as a shell. So we think you are right about the idea that the mystery animal is a reptile. Also, another fact we have found out is that non-birds don’t have nests.
When we went outside to where the black print was and felt it. The texture of the black print felt very oily and we also saw some red spludges on the wall too. We think this is from the same animal.
As well as seeing the egg, we saw that inside of it was a bit of blood and a yellow spludge which none of us know what it could be.
A few facts that could tell us that the animal is a reptile
Reptiles are found in every continent except Antarctica (where it is too cold).
Most reptiles lay eggs which have leathery shells that are resistant to drying.
Most reptiles are carnivorous and eat insects, other reptiles, and small animals.
Here is a possible reptile (the Komodo dragon) that laid the eggs.The longest one was measured at around 10 feet or 3.048m.
We hope that you can reply by commenting on our post.

This game is a fun way to learn probability!
As the sun goes down and the moon is rising something else is rising as well.. Mice squeak a the floor falls further away. Out of the window they flew.
Above the puny houses,they flew, in search with on thing on their mind.CHEESE! Luckily there was a cheese factory near by. The mice swam taking big gulps of the cheese while doing the mousey paddle. After nearly exploding there little (but now fat) bodies they thought a nice rest would do them good.
Do you remember the old ladywhom had met the frogs? Well she was in for a even bigger suprise! They floated slowly into the house and sat on her lap , drank her coco and wachted “How to make the perfect cheese”. Soon the mice left leaving cheese on her remote!
My task was to write a witness interview with the police. I hope you enjoy it and could you comment on my post to tell me if I could improve anything, thanks
Sitting alone in my ancient living room, I was watching my favourite tv show ‘Deal or No Deal’ (I do love that Noel Edmonds, don’t you?) when I presumably dosed off at around half pat eight.
It must’ve been an hour later at half nine when I was woken up by a large BANG! I could not believe it! My favourite lamp I got when it was my wedding day in the summer of 1927 had been smashed to pieces! Now, I know you may think I’ve gone nuts when I say this but I swear I saw one hundred ugly toads swarming around me! Slowly rising from my beautiful arm chair, I travelled to the kitchen to grab a broom. Consequently, because I had taken too long to get the broom, the toads had vanished.
There were a couple of things I noticed that had changed since I fell asleep. Firstly, my beloved Deal or No Deal had been changed to MTV on the tele, and someone called Nicki Minaj (what a silly name) was singing about ‘Starships’, I have to say she wasn’t very good either! Also, my remote had been sprayed with sticky goo and had spread into the battery compartment so I couldn’t change the channel as you can’t do it on the TV. That reseolved in me having to watch MTV all night.
All in all, I have come to hate toads as well as MTV too. So has Tibbles (the cat). Life’s not fair soemtimes, I suppose you just need to get on with it.
I think that having a blog for Sea Cadets is a great way to encourage young and older children not to be afraid of joining something. We can write down the sea cadet promise and give challenges to people to do outside or inside and also quiz. It will also be great boost for the sea cadets as they know that every one around the world appreciate them. I will love to have a blog.
The night was dark as evil roamed the city. Until now!!! A new superhero was in the town of Bolton,his name,Mysterion. Wherever he went evil stoped but still some people didnt care.
I think of a number and double it then add 32. My answer is 64. What number was I thinking of?
I think of a number I divide it by two then take away 10. My answer is 15. What number was I thinking of?
I think of a number I subtract 18 I divide it by 6. My answer is 12. What number was I thinking of?
Have a go at answering these questions! See if you can answer all 3!
First you place a coin into the meter then sit down , relax and let the machine do all the work.
When you sit on the chair and are strapped in then pulled to the table by some rope.This causes a large , heavy , bronze machine lowers from the ceiling and using 600 horse power suction the machine , well , sucks up all the mess on the table.
After that the machine comes down further causing it to touch the table.As a result a red glow comes from the machine which means that it is heating up the food. Soon after it the machine raises from the table leaving a lovely spread (food).
Finally a flamethrower brings down the candle and flame throws onto the candle causing it to be lit. The flamethrower rises leaving you to eat.
A diver was swimming in the rough sea when suddenly a great white shark appeared close to her.She was terrified.Luckily, a coastguard nearby saw her in distress, with the shark close, and came to the treacherous scene.The coastguard called for help from the helicopter, whilst trying to keep the shark from attaking the frightened diver.When the helecopter arrived , they lowered the ladder so that the diver could climb to safety.As the terrified women began to climb, the shark lanched it self out of the sea trying to bite her.She attempted to shield herself behind the ladder as she climbed.The shark knoked the diver off the ladder and back into the water.Lukily, a trust coastguard was close enogh to snatch her out to saftey.
The shark was guided by conservationists back out to sea, were it swam away .
A daring air-sea rescuer saved a panicking swimmer from a man-eating shark off the coast of Blackpool today. Katy Jones (aged 10) had been playing on her lilo near the shore when a gust of wind blew her out to sea.
The ten year old said “One minute I was paddling in the sea shore, next minute me and my lilo were blown out to sea. I was petrified!”
Worried onlookers on the beach immediatly called the coast gaurd, who sent for the air-sea rescue team.
Helicopter pilot Dave Butler stated “As soon as we knew a child was in trouble at sea, the crew headed off to the rescue. However, little did we know the danger had not even begun.”
As the crew began the rescue, they became aware that a menace lurked under the waves.
“I felt so relieved to see the helicopter coming, I hadn’t noticed the black shadow beneath me.” said Katy. “The man on the winch told me to keep looking at him in the eye. Just as he plucked me from the water, the shadow lunged up bearing its deadly teeth.”
Katy had narrowly escaped the clutches of a rare visitor to British seas. The ten year old was badly shaken by her ordeal but was pleased to be back on dry land.
Katy’s mother Joyce said “We never imagined a family day out could be so dramatic! The rescue crew were so brave and we’re very grateful.”
Following the rescue, the coast guard’s boat chased the shark off into the open sea.
For our homework last week we had to write a description. Here is mine:
As I’m walking through the ebony forest, I smell burning wood from the direction of the horizon. Crunching through the leaves, I search around seeing what I can find.
I can see something in the distance. Sneakily, creeping forward, I discover it is a baby unicorn. It is the most beautiful I have ever seen. With her/his shiny silver hair, and entwined single horn it is so lovely. However, the bit I like best is the tail. The elongated, swishy tail. It is so wonderful! But then when I see her/his breath, I realize I am cold too. Somehow, I feel my spirits go down, as quick as lightning. On top of that, I am desperate for warmth.
The trees are staring down at me and making me feel petrified. Worried about all the noises I could hear (such as the squawking of the birds), I hugged myself even tighter than ever.
Shivering, I stroked the unicorn one last time, before rushing off in the leaves. Crunch, crunch, crunch…
Due to the fact we were on Wild Earth African Safari,we had the incredible chance to go on the Wii whilst doing unpredictable writing.We split into five groups of six which were called Photographers,Note Takers, Googlers,Descriptors and Spotters and Counters.
In the Photography group you have three minutes to get as many pictures as possible.They would be put in your recount of what happened.
As you might have guessed Note Takers is naturally taking notes that normally would get ignored.
Although Google is used a lot,Googlers allows you to research any unknown animals that the Potographers need a picture of.
As part of the Descriptors Group,you can take one whole hour if needed to describe the scene every now and again.
In Spotters and Counters you count all the animals you see and record them on a table.
You should use the Wii because it helped me to improve my writing skills and allowed have fun at the same time.The Wii is a game but a learning resorse aswell.
The Wii covers many diffrent subjects other than Litracy.It covers,I.C.T,Maths,Gograthy and other hidden subjects.I can garantee that if you get Wild Earth African Safari 100% of your class will want to use it and will be fully engaged to thier learning.If I saw or heard of this I would defanetly ask my teacher if we could use it,don’t you agree.
Thank you for reading my post.

Wow! Another great day. I had to get up early this morning (around about 4am) so I could start searching for some astonishing animals to take shots of. It’s great to be in the Serengeti trying to find some elephants!
On my way through the Serengeti searching for elephants, I came across two warthogs (which have tusks like elephants but are a lot smaller) hiding in the long grass. I edged forward trying to get a good shot of them. However, I got too close to them and they charged away. Finally, after many attempts, I zoomed in on my camera and managed to take an excellent photo. After that, I moved on very quickly as I was worried I might have got hurt. Still prying, I moved away. Heading North, I came across two lions hunting for prey. I quickly took a photograph, then sped away rapidly.
Later, I was still searching when I came across two ostriches grazing. From what I had heard, these birds are not cuddly, in fact they are very vicious. Petrified, I proceeded forward to the birds. I guessed that they were a couple (male and female) so there could’ve been an ostrich’s nest nearby. Still moving closer, I got my camera out ready. Then all of a sudden, the ostriches charged at me, screeching very loudly. I ran away feeling terrified and disappointed as I didn’t find a nest. On the bright side, I did get a photo of the ostriches.
Now it was midday, I was getting famished and parched. Still looking for elephants as I had not found any yet, I was determined not to give up. Still heading North, I carried on. In the distance, I saw a lake which looked like it had grey clouds moving around it. Excited by this spot, I moved a lot faster on, feeling contented. Finally at the lake, I saw that the clouds were actually elephants! I couldn’t believe my luck! Snapping my camera many a time, I was so overjoyed and gobsmacked at seeing these amazing creatures. They towered over me, even the baby elephants! I even saw a mother with her baby! It was so cute and thrilling, I did not want this day to end! I had taken many photos and it was definitely worth getting up this morning!
Life in ancient Sparta was not as luxurious as life in ancient Athens. Spartans were more up for a fight than the Athenians and concentrated on training to be a soldier (men). Whereas in Athens, they concentrated more on arts and theatre productions.
Sparta was the only city state that had a full time army. Other city states had an army, but weren’t as focused on training as much as the Spartans were. While her husband was away fighting or training, a Spartan wife looked after the family farm. Unlike other Greek states, Sparta for years had no defence – walls. It relied on its mountains and its army to keep enemies away.
It was tough being a Spartan. If a new born baby was sickly and would not be fit enough to fight when it was older, it would be left on top of a mountain to die. The children of Sparta ran around with no clothes on. The boys practised fighting and did athletics. The girls did physical activities too. Spartan mothers told their sons before they left for battle, “Come back with your shield or on it.” Dead Spartans were carried home on their shields. Only a coward would drop his shield and run away.
Thank you for reading my report. I hope you enjoyed it.
