Have you ever looked at a bird and thought how do they fly?
Lift. Lift is the force that lifts the plane up in the air. Lift is important when you are taking off.
Drag: Drag is the force that slows down the plane. Drag is very important when you are on the runway.
Thrust: Thrust is the force that speeds up the plane. Thrust is important when you are taking off.
Weight: Weight is the force that pulls down the plane. Weight is important when you are coming down to land.
Planes and birds need wings to fly. That is why we can not fly because we are missing the ability to get all of the lift and thrust as we don't have wings.
So next time you try to fly by jumping off your bed don't do it because you will not fly.

Crab hunting all started with the children from Room 11 walking to the beach. Once were on the rocky shore we started tracking down crabs. Luca and I found a jellyfish floating in a rock pool. I felt nervous at first, but then once we started feeling it, I felt excited. We raced to get some friends and ran them back and showed them the jellyfish.
Then we ran to the sand down the other end of the beach and started the sandcastle competition. I created a big castle with a moat around it. Then we made rock cairns, which are like a rock castles, as the next competition. Luca and I found a tennis ball and made a big pile of rocks using the tennis ball like a flag on the top.
All I thought of as I walked back to camp was the great fun I had had that day.

It all started with Sam saying to Bob “Let's go for a walk in the woods”. They followed the track but then the track stopped and they were lost.
“We are still struggling in the woods, still going to die. How will we get out alive?” Sam said to Bob. “We won't but we might if we can go rob some food from someone”. “How will we do that?” “Go on an adventure to find some, it will be fun”
“We are still here we are never going to get home” cried Sam to Bob. “We could if we run super fast home”.

Bobby Bill Blue’s hair is black and short, he is 6 foot tall and very strong. He plays football for England and he is number 10. It is a magic shirt because he can teleport. When he plays football for Man City he is number 7.
His behaviour is very naughty. He hangs out with Joe Hart and James Millner. He meets them in a secret place behind a bookcase at his house, because they are not allowed to be together. One of his interests are to collect football cards, his favourite card is Messi and Pilie. His favourite magazine is Match of the Day. His favourite club is Barcelona. He gets very angry when Barcelona lose. His favourite player is Messi.
His accent is German. When he knows people he will not stop talking to them but, when he doesn't know people he will not say a word. He usually speaks with a loud voice as he is often excited or annoyed.
Bobby is mean to his friends. They get angry with him because when he is silly he makes jokes about his friends that they don't get, so they think he is evil. He lives in a mansion made out of shiny gold, it is tidy inside. He is rich because he has a robot. The robot is old and he will do anything to help people.
