Adam's Story

There was once a little boy called Corey Glideale. He was an adventurous little boy that dreamed of sailing round the Caribbean with pirates and go flying across Europe with the biggest names in Hollywood. Although he had these dreams he knew that they wouldn't happen because he was just a regular little boy living on the outskirts of Cardiff with his Mother and his Father and his dog Patty. Patty knew whenever Corey was feeling down or happy. Patty is a black and brown Scottish Terrier. Patty is a great dog because he can do a load of tricks like dancing and walking on his hind legs. One day Patty and Corey decided to go to a place called Monstress Mountain because of its enormous cliffs and giant peaks. Corey and patty only had a caravan with them. But this wasn't any old caravan. This was a flash big caravan with 4 different rooms. That afternoon Corey and Patty started packing for their big trip. The next morning, Corey woke up to patty barking furiously. Then suddenly there was a rattle on the door and and a face in the window. But then Corey finally saw who it was, it was the postman with a parsel. Corey got out of bed and got dressed  and asked the postman to come inside because it was hailing down heavily outside. Patty had stopped barking and started liking the postman. The postman said “ your dog is well behaved and knows a lot of tricks.” “thank you for that and I’m sure that patty will agree “ said Corey and patty barked loudly in agreement. Patty barked so loudly that the postman jumped in fright.
“BIG BROCCOLI!! that was a loud bark in my ear” shouted the postman covering his ear in agony “Sorry,sorry. PATTY COME HERE!! Posty are you alright?” asked Corey worried that his little scottish terrier had done done damage to the left ear drum of the most famous postman in Cardiff or even the UK. “I’m gonna go and see the nurse now” groaned the postman in pain and off he went to see the local nurse on Colbrie lane. After Corey had given Patty telling off the door bell went ding dong dong ding. “who is it” yelled Corey “It’s me, Jonathan” replied Corey’s best friend Jonathan. “Oh ok, come in Jonathan” yelled back Corey. “Sup bro” said Jonathan “hey” said Corey. “What are you doing today?” asked Jonathan. “Not much” replied Corey. “do you want to play chess?” asked Jonathon “MOST DEFINITELY” roared Corey and dashed down down-stairs to the basement where the games cupboard was kept. Corey found the chess set and sprinted back up-stairs and through the kitchen and back where Jonathan was waiting with a chess set in his hand “you should have waited for what I was going to say” groaned Jonathan. “Oh sorry “ muted Corey. After two hours “check-mate” yelled Jonathan. “Ohhhhh nuts” groaned Corey. “great-game Corey” said Jonathan vigorously shaking Corey’s hand. “hey, guess where I’m going next week?” asked Corey “where Corey” wondered Jonathan “Monstress Mountain’s” replied Corey “Oh, apparently that place is quite spooky” said Jonathan.

Year 5 Camp

At year 5 camp we did Air Rifles and we got to shoot the air rifle. Some people have never shot before. I hope other people get to have fun at camp. by Carter
At Year 5 camp we got to do abseiling. My favourite part of abseiling was when Tim said, "Take your time going down and be careful on the slippery part." by Alyssa
We got to do Archery and at the end it started raining and we got to have a competition in the rain. We went in pairs and had to see who could shoot the targets the most. I hit the target once. by Corey

Science with Dave

Today Dave from the University visited and did some experiments. One was when he put some indicator solution in a beaker with water and it turned green because the water was neutral. Then he put dry ice in, which is made entirely from Co2, (Carbon dioxide) into the water and the liquid turned yellow and bubbled, because there was a bit of acid in the dry ice. We got to try our own experiment. We had 20cm of acid and we put magnesium in and timed how long it took to dissolve. Then we put 15cm of acid and 5cm of water in and put the magnesium in and timed it again. Then we put 10cm of acid and 10cm of water in and then we put the magnesium in and timed it. Thanks Dave for the awesome session.

SPCA Visit

On Wednesday Steph from the SPCA came to talk to us about caring for our pets.

We learnt the 5 basic needs for a pet they are food, water, shelter, love and exercise.

Steph told us stories about some of the animals she had rescued. The biggest animal she had rescued was an elephant.

She brought her 2 dogs Wilbur (11) and Tui (7).  Tui was used as a fight dog but wouldn't fight so the people locked her up to die in a shed so the SPCA came and saved her. Wilbur got chained to a washing line without shelter or exercise so the SPCA saved him too. Steph also saved a horse that was starving and was tied to a pole it was so hungry you could see its ribs and spine a couple months later after being with the SPCA it was fit and fat.
