Trip to Mindlab and Dowse

Thank you to Mrs Cripps for organising such an awesome trip for us today. 

First we went to the Mindlab and created circuits copying a prototype.

We also did sound circuits using computers and Makey Makeys.

Then we went to the Dowse and designed badges.

Our final hour of the day was completing a construction challenge and working as a team. It was really hard work but we managed to create an obstacle course.

Lemons and Life

Motivational Speech: Lemons and Life             by Lucas Noble

Imagine, that you and everyone else has a lemon... one that can change how you feel, act and think. Life doesn’t give you lemons, life IS THE LEMON and you’ve got to squeeze ALL of that juicy lemonade out of your lemon!

I am going to show you how your lemon works, so here you go!

Basics of your lemon
Of course, you can’t squeeze that lemon on your own. You need other people to help you! When someone helps you, they help you squeeze that juicy lemonade into your cup and when you say thank you, you’re helping them squeeze your lemon! Also, when you help someone, as I just said, your lemon gets squeezed too! WARNING- there is a tiny hole in everyone’s lemon, and ANYONE, absolutely ANYONE can enter it if you’re not careful. Others can help guard your lemon.

When someone is mean to you, your lemon gets spat in, and when you lemon gets spat in, it rots.Your whole lemon (or life) is ruined- you’re as sad as a cat without its food. But your lemon isn’t the only one - when that person is mean to you, its lemon rots a bit too.

Recovering from pain and tips on defending your lemon
If you don’t guard your lemon, the wrong people can get in, and can cause a lot, sorry I mean A LOT! of damage.They could rot it up, they could mix your lemonade with their disgusting, deadly words and punches, or worst of all, even end it FOREVER! You only get given one lemon, so take care of it while it lasts, and have fun with it too! If you are wondering “How can I defend my lemon?” Then, you can do it by getting help from friends or family, keeping aware of who is near your lemon, and deciding what is good to enter your lemon and what is not. BEWARE -
some may look innocent, but they are really just wanting to trick you into thinking they’re safe, so keep clear of that!

Having fun with your lemon
Every night, in your sleep, your lemon is filling up with more lemonade to get you ready for the next day, and gets rid of some bad things, but other bad things might stay a little longer. Sometimes it can be quick but sometimes it can be slow (or even take years).
But in the end have fun in life and learn to get more juice, and squeeze it all out later.
Sometimes you might be doing something that feels good, but the lemonade being squeezed, isn’t landing in the cup. OH NO! It’s all over the floor now, and you slip over it. Smoking to some people seems “fun” but it has bad consequences that slowly rot your lemon.

 by Levi



Superman  has a  yellow belt and a red cape with red boots and black hair and   blue jumpsuit. He has strong muscles so he can fly to save people in buildings.Then he  brings them down to the ground  to go to the hospital to feel better.

     Supergirl   by Charlotte Deans

My superhero is Supergirl and here is my story about her.
She saves people all around her city and the awesome thing is that her cousin is….. Superman. That’s how she became supergirl. When she was a kid
she got in a rocket and flew  to where her cousin Superman was on earth. Superman’s mum became like her stepmum because she left her mum and dad behind.

Supergirl’s mum and dad had to stay back in the country then when she got to the new country her first fight was with Vartox. After the fight near mud, she was all dirty then she flew back to her lab.

What powers does she have? You are probably wondering? She has super strength and super speed. She can also fly, and project fire vision.

If I could have a super hero friend it would be supergirl.
Why I picked her is because she is a supergirl that saves people by herself and fights by herself.
