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.

One of the organs in the human body is the heart, it continuously pumps blood around our body through blood vessels. The heart is located in the left hand side of your chest and the rib cage keeps the heart protected. The heart has four chambers, the left atrium, right atrium, left ventricle and right ventricle. The heart beats about 100,000 (km) times each day. Every heart weighs like two apples. Did you know your heart beats 35 million times a year.

If you would like to tell us where YOU are from comment on our post!
This is how you spell special:
This is how you spell said:
The children were evacuated for the sake of there lives. Evacuation tried to ensure the safety of young children from the cities that were harmful and was in danger of German bombing many cities. the children were evacuated to small villages and villages in the countryside. Some children were evacuated to relatives , but some lived with complete strangers. By the end of the Second World War around 3.5 million people were evacuated.
Here are some questions for you:
How would you feel if you were evacuated? How would you feel without you real family? How was life in the country different to life in the city?
As the waves were splashing and the people were watching ( standing on the bridge) a humongous shark jumped into the air . The shark was the colour of ebony and diamond. Its sharp fin was touching the sky.Terrifying the shark was.Just wating for a person to come down and for the shark to eat him/her, the people were terrified.
A man was standing on the bridge feeling the breeze in his hair watching the radiant sea splashing every where, not realizing he stepped on to the broken part of the bridge and fell into the sea, next to the gigantic shark. Everyone screamed !!!!
Drowning in the sea, the man’s heart started beating rapidly! He stopped breathing ,due to the fear of the shark. He felt as if his life had already ended (as if he was with god).
A helicopter had come to save the man. Grabbing the ladder, the man started breathing again. The shark could’nt have his lunch. Now the man was happy.
Are you ready for a big challenge?
Well, I think you are. Here it is

Do you know the difference between prisms and pyramids? Let us tell you then!
This is a pyramid. We know this because all the faces join at the top, making an apex.
This is a prism. We know this because it is a polyhedron for which the top and bottom faces (known as the bases) are polygons and all other faces are rectangles.

Try this hard challenge. Remember, no calculator.
Mr Mitchell has sent us on a challenge to write a post about the Wii. Yes the Wii , you may not believe it, but it is true.
We were told that we would be using the Wii to help our learning, which most certainly happened.
There were many groups that were doing different things and we changed groups every week. They are as follows: Note takers, googlers, descriptors, spotters and counters and finally the children which were incharge of the Wii.
What do the groups do?
- The note takers spot important facts, that comes up on the screen.
- If a child does not know what something is, then the googlers google images and information.
- The descripters describe whatever they see, hear ect.
- We also have the spotters and counters. They spot and count how many animals and which animals they can see.
We also have the rule ‘Home’ ,when a person says home, the people incharge of the control presses the home button. That person either says some thing that can help the person on the Wii or they can ask a question.
Can you still believe it ,or not?
Let’s tell you a bit on how to play.
Firstly, we looked around the Safari. When writing comes up to say what you are looking for at the top of the screen, then we go in search for it.
For example, if it says look for a vulture grazing. You look for a vulture (type of bird) in the sky. When you see it , the people in charge of the Wii (Also known as the photographers) take a picture.So the spotters and counters may put on the tally of how many vultures they can see.
Using the Wii we have also done some superb pieces of writing. Here are some things we wrote.
Standing in the streem the freezing water nibbled the toes of my sore feet.
Why don’t you try and make your own writing and imagine you are actually on the Safari!
Extra Extra challenge
Try to be the first one ( except year5) to write your own diary of the Safari Park. Make sure you include VCOP!!!
Pics will be online next week
In every year in November we wear a poppy in the remembrance of those who lost their lives for us during wars.The eleventh hour of the eleventh month of the eleventh date marks the signing of the Armistice. At 11 am on11 November 1918 the guns of the Western Front fell silent after more than four years. In the UK at 11am on each Remembrance day two minute silence is observed.
The Greek theatre first began with honoring their gods such as a god, Dionysus, was honored in a festival which is called”City Dionysia”. In Athens, during this festival, men used to sing songs to welcome Dionysus.
Athens was the main center for traditions. Athenians use to spread these festivals to other city-states
At the early Greek festivals, the actors, directors, and dramatists were all the same person. After some time, only 3 actors were allowed to perform in each of these play. Later non-speaking roles were allowed to be perform on the stage. Due to limited number of actors allowed on the stage, the chorus became a special active part of the Greek theatre. Music was only and often played during the chorus’ .
Muslims greet each other with well wishes for the festival along with the meat of the animal. Muslims spend time with their near and dear ones like relatives to spread love and happiness all around.
Hercules is the greatest hero in Greece mythology. He was the son of Theban Alcmene and Zeus, Hercules was the strongest man on earth. He considered himself equal to the gods. Hercules was not blessed with great intelligence, but his bravery made up for any lack of cunning. Hercules was full of sorrow and guilt for what he had done and was ready to except any punishment for his misdeeds, he is commanded to carry 12 labours, in the hopes that he will be killed in accomplishing one of them.
1. The Lion – He must strangle the Nemeon dragon;
2. The Hydra – He must kill 9 headed hydra;
3. The Hind – He must capture the dread Erymanthion boar;
4. The Boar – He must capture a stang with golden antlers and brazen feet;
5. The Stables – He must get rid of the carnivorous symphalion birds;
6 .The Birds – He must cleanse the stables of Augeas;
7. The Bull – He must capture the sacred bull of Minos;
8. The Horses – He must drive away the carnivorous mares of Diomedes;
9. The Belt – He must secure the girdle of Hippolyta, queen of the amazons;
10. The Cattle – He must bring back the oxen belonging to the monster Geryoneus;
11. The Apples – He must bring back the golden apples of the Hesperidas; and
12. Cerberus – He must bring back Cerberus , the 3 headed dog of the underworld.
Are you up for a challenge? why not try this sum out …
What is 1824 multiplied by 16?
Grrrrrrr! Things are not going well in Athens ,for the Athenians .I personally think; they like to boast about how good they are at fighting .So our army was on our own.We will be fighting against 30000 people,against 10000 of us, they had a good and fierce reputation .All of us were very frightened, none of us wanted to die .As we waited for our orders, I could hear a weep of a person crying , others were praying to god for help. Our leader, Militades, gave us many orders to push yhe Persians towards the sea. we raised our shields and came forwards. The Persains and Darius troops began to brake ranks. I was feeling many butterflies in my tummy. My heart went Thump!Thump! Thump. We can do this. The Persians scattered in every direction.
