On the 29th of March P6A went to Amazonia.
Firstly we put our coats and bags in a locker and then we lined up waiting to go into Amazonia. The lady who was taking us round talked to us about some things that were inside. Then she took us inside and asked us some questions about the rainforest. Next she took us round so we could see all of the different animals and there was even a nocturnal section. Some of the animals we saw are: toucan and he was called Coco, snakes, monkeys, birds, amphibians and butterflies. After that we went into the handling room where we could hold a tortoise, a snake and a tarantula. Some people didn’t hold any of them but most people did. After a while we went into the interactive section, also with a green screen. The boys sat down on the green screen first and they played a game to jump up and down to catch butterflies on the screen. Eventually the girls got a shot and then they played one more game, but by the end of that everyone was really hungry! So we went under a big tent to eat some lunch. While we were eating we were given a rainforest booklet to fill in. Before very long everybody made their way back to Amazonia to have another look around at the animals. Some people even fed the fish. Lastly we got on the bus and we went back to school.
KEEPING MY SELF E-SAFE:
We watched Mark’s story about him getting scammed. His friend got a new game called Deal or Death 2 but a week later it needed an update so he downloaded an update and it said ‘just click here and Deal or Death 2 will update’. So Mark clicked it and it said ‘you have updated Deal or Death 2 and it said ‘click here to get Deal or Death 3’. Mark was shocked. Deal or Death 3 shouldn’t be out by Christmas. So he clicked it and it said buy Deal or Death 3 for only £19.99 so Mark went and got his mum’s credit card and got Deal or Death 3 but when he clicked on it the game didn’t arrive. So he went to see his mum and she was on the phone talking to the police. Mark had spent £500. His mum was upset and angry. We learned we shouldn’t click on things we don’t know what they are on the internet or use a credit card without permission.

We have been doing money. We added some coins like 50p, 20p, 10p, 1p, 2p and £1. We have done some change so if you went to the shop you could be like Sally. Her mum gave her 50p and she spent 48p. Her change would be 2p. At the beginning of change I did not really get it and now I know how to do it. I think it is quite easy now.
I like reading because it helps me read more big books. I like reading because you get to read books that you never would read. At the moment I am reading Horrid Henry.
