That’s all Folks!

Thank you to everyone who has followed and participated in Class 5AS’ learning journey.  We have all had a great time sharing our learning with so many people around the world.  The hits we received from around the world certainly helped us learn about the diversity of planet Earth!

However, this is not the end.  You can continue to follow the class’ exploits as they move into Year 6 with their new teacher Mrs Taylor.  The class name will be 6KT and here is their blog http://rosendale6kt.posterous.com/

Thank you & goodbye from 5AS!

My Trip to Bournemouth

A couple of days ago my family and I went on a day trip to Bournemouth. It was organised by my grandparents and a club called AAF. We had to meet at the AAF building at 7:00 in the morning because the coach was leaving at 8:00.The AAF building is near our school but oppisite Sainsburys. Their were so many people that we didn’t end up leaving until 9:00, it took some time to get everybody into one double decker coach but luckliy Me, My sister Aaliyah, My brother Kyrell, My mum, My aunty Jac, her two children Kalyani and Joaquin and their brother Zavi got on the coach first so we were settled down before anybody. Finally our journey to Bournemouth began. It took us three hours to get their but for 2hours and a half from that I was sleeping. When we got their everybody I mentioned earlier went as one group around the beach. We had to walk on the sand and when we took off our shoes it was not a good look! This is what the beack looked like:

My Mother said that we could put our feet in the water so we did but it was freezing cold. 20 minutes later we went to go on some rides. The first ride we went on was the roundabout, it was really fun. Then we went to get our names done on wood (which I can bring into school) which turned out awsome. After that we went on a ghost train. It was so scary!! Their was this doll on a rope that looked real that made my brother cry. I felt so sorry for him because he was only 4. Then we went on this really fun rid where you would sit in a chair and it will go in the air and spin you around like crazy!! When we went on all the rides we went to the aquarium it was really expensive for 8 of us to go in so we went to the gift shop. In the gift shop I got an amethyst quartz take a look:

I could bring it in class to show everybody.

After that we went to the pier to get souverniers. I got a bracelet and my cousin Kalyani got a shell which was beautiful.

While walking on the pier we saw some gentleman fishing the caught 3 fishes in a row!!!

We had to meet back at the coach at 18:00(6:00 in 24hour clock)

My mum said we could get some sweets from the sweet shop and I got some chocolate mini eggs which tasted delicious.

Finally it was time to go home so everybody got the coach and we headed home.We didn’t reach home until 9:00 in the night.

When I got home I went fast asleep and that was my trip to Bournemouth.

My holiday in France and Spain!!! By Polly

It looks like you are having a fun time in Sweden, Mr Stace.

I have just got back from Spain! We drove in our car to France and it took 3 days to get there. We stopped in the Loire and the Dordogne (I call it the DoingDoing!). On the second day I ate Escargots which is cooked snails!

They tasted of grass and garlic, I loved them! We stayed in a campsite called Les Alicourts in the Loire, when we left we saw thousands of Deux Chevauxs (2Cvs) on a rally. These are really cute french cars. Then we drove to the DoingDoing to a campsite with a heated pool. I swam in it in the rain!

The next day we drove to Spain to a campsite in Calella, which is on the Costa Brava. We stayed there for two and a half weeks. Most of the time we went to the beach, swam in the sea and jumped off rocks. I did some snorkelling sometimes and saw some amazing fish. I caught some tiny little fish and Mum caught two shrimps and a hermit crab (I put them back in the sea afterwards).

We went to a beach where we went on a pedalo with a SLIDE! Woohoo! We pedalled out to where the sea was deeper (and colder!), then we all had a go. It was fun! One day, on the pool floor I found a lizard, and a few days later he was there again drinking water, and he drunk drops of water from my finger! I called him Gary the Lizard.

We went to the Dali museum in Figueres. Dali was a really weird artist who made sculptures and paintings. Will got a Dali moustache T-shirt! The best thing in Figueres was the hot chocolate and churros (these are really sugary long donuts that you dip in really thick hot chocolate. Mum was in heaven.) We made some friends on the campsite and found out that they live really near us in Herne Hill. They lent us their boat, I jumped and fell of the side lots! Me and Will played draughts on the beach a lot. I won once. One day we went to the botanical gardens. They are large gardens on a giant hillside above the sea. I saw some amazing views. There was a cactus garden with loads of fluffy cactuses that looked weird.

Here are some photos

So 5AS, what have you been up to so far this summer?

So far this summer my family and I have been in Sweden.  The first week we spent in Umea, which in found on the north east coast of the country.  There we visited Mrs Stace’s cafe on almost a daily basis to indulge ourselves in ice cream, waffles, freshly baked cakes and of course coffee.

Astrid and Kerstin enjoyed themselves immensely swimming in the sea every day!  We enjoyed the long evenings by the sea eating typically Swedish food, and singing Swedish songs.

On one particularly warm day, I joined some friends on a floating sauna, and we motored along Umea’s main river until we took a turn into a small lake.  There we found a rope swing!  It was incredibly scary and exciting.  Later that evening when we moored in town we were film by the local TV station and we even appeared on the news.  I’m pleased to say I was wearing my Rosendale sweatshirt!

I also “ripped it up” on a friend’s half pipe.  My friend built a half pipe for his 7 year old and 4 year son to play on.  However, I think that my friend used that as an excuse as he seems to use it more than anyone else!

Thereafter, we drove south to Stockholm and its archipelago, where we spent some time on a small island.  Whilst there we took the speedboat on excursions to secluded beaches, went fishing and swam in the sea.   Whilst walking around the island my daughters spotted lots of wild life, including foxes, deer, woodpeckers, eagles and even an adder; Astrid almost stepped on it!

Towards the end of our stay we had a crayfish party.  This is a traditional party in Sweden which takes place towards the middle of August which celebrates the end of the summer.   Everyone eats crayfish, pie and the adults drink beer and schnapps.  They also sing many schnapps songs!  Being so far north, autumn begins earlier in Sweden than it does in England, hence celebrating in mid August.

We all had a fantastic time!

Now 5AS, I’m looking forward to reading all about your summer holidays.  What have you been up to?  Write your accounts in the comments section, or if you have photos, post them on the blog.

(I’ll ask Mrs Taylor to give all respondents raffle tickets on your return to school!)

Mr S.
