Getting Ready

The extension group of Pt England school was getting ready for a video conference with a man called Joshua Klein. He is a very FAMOUS man who trains crows to do very great stuff, But some of the things the crows do the research crew didn't teach the crows how to do it.
Joshua Klein is trying to tell the people that crows are very useful and intelligent. We got to know all this useful stuff by watching a talk show call "Ted Talks", it is for people who have been clever enough to research and observe living things (or not living things.)
Joshua has proved that crows are intelligent by building vending machines, putting it out where there are lots of crows. There are 4 stages of getting food, 1:There are peanuts and coins all scattered around the vending machine, 2:There are peanuts on the feeding tray then the crows just help themselves, 3:Then there are coins in the coin slot and the crows push the coin in with their beak then the final stage is where the crows just have to collect a coin then out in into the coin slot then a peanut comes out.
We have learnt this amazing information because we are going to have a video conference with him later on. I can't wait!!

Sports Rotation

"OH MAN" Rm 15 said when we just lost our first game. We competed against Rm 18 at King Dodge. The senior school (team 4) were having a sports rotation of games.
They were yelling and shouting at us but we didn't really mind. Even though we lost, we still had some fun! Next we had to go into the hall and do some "Jump-a-riffic" jumping on the trampoline. Mrs Nua was in charge, In the hall we had to jump onto the tramp and flip onto the crash-mat , I was nervously waiting in line, I wanted to go and just sit down but Mrs Nua already called my name to go and jump. I just felt like my legs were stuck to the ground like wet cement, but when I started to run my legs loosened and started to feel like jelly, then I ran and sprung up into the air and went splat onto the crash-mat. I did a superman, but its just like a belly flop and not a flip at all. I was just glad my turn was over!!
