Week 9 Question: I wonder what the world will be like in 200 years.
In 200 years everything will be different and cooler!
I think there will be more animals.
I like to think in 200 years humans will have learnt to live on this planet without destroying it! That we as a race live in peace.
I think there will be lots more animals than there are now.
I think that the world will become more developed because of technology being
advanced. - Thomas
I think that everyone will become lazy and everything will be electronic and people
will litter more. -Jessica
I think that it will be over populated, too hot and there will be less land due to
rising sea levels. We will still be debating Brexit. -Dad
(Jessica and family)
Week 8 Question: Should we always try new things?
Yes, because you might get better at things like riding a bike. You shouldn't try swimming in a pool with a crocodile.
Yes we should try new things, unless its dangerous or something that would put you in prison.
No, because if you are trying something new like swimming you might drown and if you try to climb up a mountain you might fall. If you're going on a water slide you might bang your head on the floor.
We should try new things because it could make our lives easier. If we don't try
new things life can be hard sometimes.
Amelia- Yes, if you don't your life would just be the same every day and get boring.
Mum- Yes, how do we know if we do or don't like something if we don't try it. Trying new things helps us learn.
Dad- Yes, life would be boring if not!
Lydia- Yes, I like trying new things, it's fun.
(Amelia and family)
Yes because if you do you can learn a life lesson depending on what you do.
-If you don't you will get bored of the things you always do.
-To meet new people
-It gives you things to share
-It can help push you to not be bored
-It helps expand your mind and get rid of your fears.
We should try new things because we don't know what we are good at because when I tried singing I am getting way better at it, so everyone should try new things.
Week 7 Question: Why is school important?
It is important because I learn, meet new friends and enjoy lessons. We do maths,
English and I can play football.
School is important, because it helps you learn, read and write. Without school, I
wouldn't be able to read this question or write this answer!
School is important because we learn things that we never knew before. Subjects like maths, literacy, science, RE, history and art. We make new friends too.
School is important because you need education. It enables you to learn to get the career you want. Teachers teach you things for the future. You learn life skills and have fun learning. School is safe and fun, it educates you for the future and the job you want to have and be successful in the years at college. It is good because you have breaks through the day, a short one and a hour one for eating lunch and playing. Then at the end of the day we go home. I like break times as they are fun. All teachers make the days fun to learn and sometimes we go on school trips.
School is important because it prepares children for life and it is all about reading,
writing, maths and learning about people and it is a life time things.
Week 6 Question:What makes a good teacher?
Helping children if they get stuck with work makes a good teacher. Someone who is kind and helpful. Patience - and lots of it!
Someone who has a good relationship with their class, is enthusiastic and accessible.
(Lottie and family)
Practice makes a good teacher, they need a big shouty voice so that they can tell people off when someone is being naughty. You need to be a good speller, have patience, be good at planning and explaining and be really nice and kind. Miss Rowland is a good teacher because she is smiley, caring, not very shouty and is good at explaining things in a way that makes sense.
A good teacher:
-Explains things well
-Is kind and helpful
-Knows a lot
A good teacher is someone who is kind and cares about the children.
I think a good teacher is when they are a bit strict, creative, thoughtful, mindful and make us brighter. A good teacher is someone who cares about all the children, can adapt their teaching methods to suit different needs and someone who listens.
(Isabelle and mum)
They help us when we get stuck on a question. They do fun things for us to do and they are always fair.
Helping you with your work when you struggle. Giving pupils rewards when they give 100% and listening to you if you have any sort of problems and help you solve any issues. A teacher who makes lessons interesting and exciting. A teacher who explains things very clearly and making subjects easy to understand is all what makes a good teacher.
A good teacher gives support, helps us learn, guidance in life, good role model, gives good advice and is always kind. They can have fun with learning as well as being serious when needed and discipline people when needed. They are caring, have a big heart and are always giving.
Week 5 Question: What does wonder mean to you?
To wonder, it means you think about different things.
Wonder is the same as thinking. Things like the pyramids are classed as wonders of the world as nobody knows how or why they were built.
Wonder is thinking very hard.
Either a deep thought and concentration or a feeling of amazement.
Wonder means when someone thinks of something.
(Joseph and family)
Wondering is asking what life holds. Wonder is like feeling curious. Wonder is what you are thinking. I wonder what we will be doing today. Wonder is what you don't know about, I wonder what everyone is talking about. Wondering when you are going on holiday or wondering what you are going to get on your birthday. Wondering what the new house is going to be like and wondering what you want for tea.
Week 4 Question: Would you rather be dull or colourful?
I would rather be colourful because dull is boring.
I would be colourful because if I got lost I would be so colourful people can find me from far away.
Colourful because when you are lost in the dark someone can see you.
I would rather be colourful because I like different bright colours.
I would be dull and colourful, because I do like to wear dark colours sometimes because I think it is really stylish. I would wear dull because I like black and white clothes. I wore black at my dance assembly, we wore black socks, black trousers, black trainers and black tops. I would also be colourful too because I don't want to be too dull or it would be boring and ugly. I would be colourful too because I like being colourful because I think it looks nice and it is nice to wear bright things as well as dark.
Week 3 Question: What would happen if the world wasn't real?
If it wasn't real then the world wouldn't be real.
We chatted about what it would be like if the world wasn't real and found it tough to imagine what and how it would be like. This is because we spoke about all the things that make the world real to us. Some of Arlo's examples included: being able to look at things and to be able to talk to each other. We said if the world wasn't real, there would be no animals, birds or humans left, everything would be pitch black and everything would be gone. Arlo said he knows the world is real because he is real and we are all real.
(Arlo and Mum)
If the world wasn't real
You could not eat a meal,
You wouldn't be able to feel
You'd never see an eel,
You couldn't hear a squeal
And that would be the deal!
The atmosphere wouldn't have us in and the earth would not be in the sky so we wouldn't be a thing. No one would know about us and no one would be real, not even in heaven.
The earth won't be in space and people can't do what they want because they
won't be there and god won't be there.
If the world wasn't real we wouldn't be here and nothing would exist. There would
be no nature, no trees or oxygen, no animals, no insects, no buildings, no satellite,
or grave yards and we would not be alive.
I think it would be hard because the world is a brilliant place to be with technology, jobs, sweets, cars and school.
I think it would be better because of the pollution and seeing other planets in the solar system.
If the world wasn't real, it would be like living in a giant video game, where you could make up things as you go along.
If the world wasn't real, we wouldn't exist.
It would be a very strange place where people may not always live by rules.
(Evie and family)
Week 2 Question:Is it possible to try your hardest all of the time?
No, if you are poorly you might not feel like trying your hardest.
No, sometimes you get tired so can't try your best.
Yes. I always try my hardest and as long as we try our hardest and do our
best no matter the outcome, we will be happy.
(Joe and mum)
No, because sometimes you need to have a rest. Sometimes you need to do your
No because sometimes you make mistakes. When you get tired you can't always have the energy to do your best.
(William and mum)
Everyone tries their best to succeed at work. I would like to succeed in art! Yes, because you can always try and try again.
I think it depends on the target/goal for the effort required. Also the time allocated to the task. Human ability and environments, for example a task is harder to complete in the rain or on sand or one handed. Did you eat breakfast? Are you fit enough? Have you learnt enough? It is possible to believe you can try your hardest every time, but perfection and desired results are dependent on many factors. Skill, luck, focus, desirability and confidence.
(Eevee and Dad)
In my opinion I don't think you can try your hardest all the time, because sometimes you are not concentrating. Mum thinks that we should always try our hardest especially when its for something important like school work or doing sports, so you don't let your team down.
No, because you can get tired.
No, you can loose interest.
You can only try your best at a specific time. For example, if you haven't slept properly in a few days your best wouldn't be as good as when you're well rested.
(Jack, William and Dad)
Week 1 Question:Would you rather be a Crocodile or a Pirate?
I would be a crocodile because pirates died a long time ago and crocodiles are still alive today.
A Pirate because you could find a treasure chest and sail the seven seas.
I'd rather be a pirate because I could make bad people walk the plank.
I would rather be a crocodile because I get to live in the sea in warm oceans like in North America. I also would have a longer life span of up to 100 years. I love meat and I'd have a stronger bite to any other animal.
I would rather be a crocodile because I can eat the pirate and sink his ship so I can have his jewels!
I would rather be a crocodile because they've been alive longer and they have really sharp teeth. Also it has rock hard scales on its body that stops other predators hurting it.
I would be a crocodile because pirates hurt people.
I would be a crocodile because Pirates were bad people.
A pirate, because they get lots of treasure.
A crocodile so I can swim in water and pirates steal.
Crocodile so your not naughty on purpose, its instinct.
Pirate because I like treasure.
Crocodile because you constantly live in water and when they bite something they are just defending themselves.
(Jessica and family)
I would rather be a crocodile than a pirate because crocodiles live longer and are mostly relaxed, until they see prey.
Crocodile because they have lived on earth for over 200 million years, 65 million years before dinosaurs. They are true survivors.
I would rather be a crocodile because it can live on land and in water and is strong and resilient to changes in nature. A pirate is just a glorified thief.
I would be a pirate as they are very cheeky, funny and a little bit scary!
We would rather be crocodiles because they have lived longer than anything else.
(Lyndon and family)
