Meet our new class members: Chuck Norris and our new stick insect whose name is still to be decided. They are both very happy to be here and we are also happy to have them; the new members of our class. Keep your eyes wide open because soon we will have some more friends to keep them company.

On Monday, The Archive service came to our school, and told us about The Victorians. One aspect that they told us about was Margam Castle and they showed us a plan of it. Take a look at it below:-
Today we are drawing our own little version of a rich Victorian house, that is almost the same as Margam Castle. There are different rooms for every place, but they are in completely different places.
We had to make sure that it was between 1400 and 1600m2. There were lots of important rooms that we had to include such as: the library; an orangery; a drawing room; an entrance hall. The scale we decided to use was 1cm:2m.
I think it was hard, but my friend here who is also writing, thinks it was pretty easy. When I have completed my plan, I will post it here.
The next lesson we listened to a poem called 'The Listeners' by Walter De Le Mare. It was quite scary. Take a look for yourself:-
For our games lesson we have been playing tennis.
Move around; don't stand like a tree!
Try your best.
Hit the ball.
Wear suitable clothes and shoes.
Stay on your feet at all times.
Try and keep the ball in the air if you can.
The are playing a game called 'First to three'.
The aim of the game is to hit the tennis ball so it hits your opponents come.
They are using controlled shots to hit a target. It's good fun!
