Random Act of Kindness

 My act of kindness!

In November, my Mam had a parents evening call with my teacher and I got a good report, so I got some money. I decided that I was going to spend it on getting some food and toys for the cats and dogs at the RSPCA Felledge for Christmas. 

The,n, the second I thought of that idea, I went to the shops and bought lots of stuff. Next, I made them a Christmas card and some animal hama beads. Lastly, I got a massive Christmas gift bag and put all of the stuff in. A few days before Christmas, we went to the RSPCA  and gave them the gift. Then, the really nice lady asked for my address so she could send me some pictures of the cats and dogs using the stuff that I sent. 

How do you donate?

You can donate money on the RSPCA website or you can take something into the venue. Hope this inspired you to do an act of kindness!

Vishal Tripathi - a Lancastrian cricketer who is training to be a doctor.

Vishal Tripathi is a professional English cricketer who plays at the Bootle cricket club. He joined Northamptonshire on a 3-month trial on 15 December 2010. He was born on 3 March (32 years old). He is right-handed and his role is an all-rounder. He has a brother called Bharat Tripathi. 

Next year, however, Tripathi is going to quit cricket and become a doctor! He applied for medical school 3 times, but got rejected. He studied all of his weak points and came back stronger, so he got accepted this time. He will soon be qualified, but he doesn't know what kind of doctor he should be.

His advice is to never give up and be resilient. He said that for example,  just because you fail some subjects doesn't necessarily mean that you are a bad student. He also said that he was weak at some subjects, like English. He was very creative as a child and always let himself get  carried away. He said that he had always enjoyed Art or P.E.

Tripathi states that he had always been very sporty and had rather enjoyed P.E. He also has childhood pictures from when he was 4-5 years old where he has a cricket bat clutched in one hand and a toy ball in the other. He played his first game of cricket at the age of 9.  


FUN FACT: WHEN HE WAS IN PRIMARY SCHOOL, TRIPATHI WANTED TO BE A WINDOW CLEANER!

 What is Christmas?


Christmas is a holiday that is celebrated on the 25th of December. It is based on the day when baby Jesus was born. Children receive presents from friends and family, and if they're lucky, Santa will leave a gift. For some people, It is a tradition to put up a Christmas Tree and decorate it with sparkling tinsel, shiny baubles and shimmering lights. Normally, a huge star would be placed on the top of the tree to represent the star that led the Shepherds to the Stable where baby Jesus was born. People would put up decorations inside and outside of their houses. On Christmas Day, A Lot of families have a Christmas dinner. 


What is eaten at Christmas Dinner?

 In a Christmas dinner, there is normally Turkey, Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Cranberry Sauce, Carrots, Turnips and Parsnips. Then, for dessert, you would have Christmas Pudding, Pumpkin Pie, Apple Pie, 

Raisin Pudding and Fruitcake.



What can we do for Christmas this year?


This year, Christmas is going to be a bit different then usual. This year, only up to 3 households can meet up together for 5 days. Some things you can do with your family is watch a Christmas Movie. Here are some great movies: Home alone, The Grinch, Christmas Chronicles. Also, you can have a Zoom call with your family and play some christmas games!!

Born to Run!!!!!

  27th September 2020 - The Coast to Coast Relay: I decided to take on a challenge hosted by a running club named North East Project. The challenge was to take part in a relay from one side of England to the other. I ran almost seven miles and alongside me was my dad, this was the furthest I had ever run and it was extremely difficult. My run consisted of many different terrains including gravel and grass. A few other people joined my dad and me on this part of the relay.

 This autumn, I haven’t let the pandemic stop me running. I have still managed to compete.

 



Result: 6.88 miles = 1:01:30

 Dinosaurs were once the superior species and were once the only living thing today but we still admire them, but why? They’re dead but we like them maybe because of how huge they are or about how fascinating they can be, either way we still like them but sadly they had one small flau, their small brains. They may be big but they’re not smart at all. The smartest dinosaur is actually one very small called Troodon! Yeah they were small but were very smart and did good hunting if they were in a pack.

But what about the biggest? Well in fact Argentinosaurus is the biggest one we know of today. It was a massive theropod and theropods are dinosaurs like Brachiosaurus, Apatosaurus and no carnivores are theropods.

But if you want the biggest carnivore than you’re wanting to see is apparently ( I don’t know for sure because i just found out on ) the well known Spinosaurus! Yes, in fact it actually ate fish (which is a type of meat I guess) and it had a long snout and a sail on its back and it was used to saw stuff apart! I’m just kidding but it's actually used to collect heat from the sun while it sits down to make all the heat spread out when it goes swimming in cold water.

Scratch - A Brilliant Coding Website

 Scratch is one of the best coding websites to use, since although it can create some extraordinary programs, it is so simple. 


To start a program, you need to go to the ‘Events’ section. Your program could end up being a game, a piece of artwork and so much more, it’s all up to you! If you like, you can click the orange share button, and the entire Scratch community will be able to see your project, just as you will be able to do for others. Backdrops and sprites can be inserted into your program too. Sprites (in-game characters) can be added via either: Google Searches, the Scratch sprites, or you can design one yourself! Video sensing, variables and sounds are just a few of the countless incredible features on this website. Also, almost everything is customizable: there are customizable sounds, sprites, colours, variables, code blocks, coordinates, sizes, transparency and thats only a few! 


So those are a few reasons for why I massively recommend trying this coding website. The link is: https://scratch.mit.edu/ .

Our Autumn Book - A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Lemony Snicket’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events, The Bad Beginning, is an amazing children's book aimed at 10-12 year olds. It is about three unlucky Orphans who go and stay with filthy, vile Count Olaf. Sunny - the youngest - is an infant and has an unusual hobby of biting things. Klaus - the middle child - is very knowledgeable and loves to read although Violet - the oldest - has a knack for inventing things.


If you don't fancy reading the book, there is a whole movie on Netflix. With Emily Browning as Violet, Liam Aiken as Klaus and Jim Carrey as Count Olaf it is a shame not to watch it. As a class, we have been really enjoying this story and I would definitely recommend it.
