I’m really scared because my family are from the other side of the wall. I’m really upset that I’m not aloud to get past that annoying wall. I hate the fact that on the side I’m on gets payed less but I’m happy that things are cheaper than on this side. I won’t even try to communicate with them because I know I’ll be shot dead instantly so wouldn’t dare to try because I’d rather stay alive than dies. Even though I don’t have the chance to visit my friends and some family I still want to stay alive. I really miss my family and I would love to see them, it would be an pleasure.
In class we have weekly mandarin lessons. I learnt how to say what drink I wanted, in order to learn how to say and remember it we played a game where we had real juice, real water and real coke (even though we weren’t allowed to drink it). So I was the shopkeeper and people came up to me told me what they wanted and then I poured for them, but they were only allowed to say it mandarin. It was really fun when it was someone elses’ turn I got to have some of the juice.
We went there to do a river study on the River Darrent.First we went into the classrooms there and they reminded us of the things we had learnt a few weeks ago. We had playtime there too and they had a place in the playground that had a great view and had little mushrooms which was poisonous. After that we got our wellies on and set of to the River. Once we were there we started to go in the River there were groups that did different things at different times, we measured the length of rocks, how fast it flowed ,we did this by dropping the tennis ball in the water and timeing it, then we went to test which part of the Rver was deepest.
Last half term year 5 went to the Horniman Museum. When we went inside, we went to see the aquarium on our topic on Victorian fish art. We were free to go around the aquarium, We thought the Jelly fish moved really slow and made us feel calm. We also saw some interesting fishes there to , there was this fish that spat out white bubbles, though we didn’t think it was bubbles we thought it was eggs.We looked around and then we started to draw some very detailed pictures of the fish that were there.It was really hard because they were moving. Then we went to the stuffed animals part and we started drawing the marine stuffed animals that were there.There was a giant walrus there too!🐟
It was really fun in The Horniman Museum. The whole class sketched live fish, frogs, jellyfish and sea horses. We sat on the floor to look at the animals really carefully and sketched them out with pencil. There were lots of detail and it was really hard to get them right. We also sketched other marine life, I sketched a walrus.
