hi everyone!

Its me, Laszlo Grant Roberts and I am here to tell you that I am having lots of fun at secondary school. I miss you guys a lot. I can’t decide what my favourite subject is. I hope my year 5/6 teachers are reading this message. I might send more in the future.

Next steps for our video skills

So far we’ve used videos and photos, transitions, as well as text and narration. You told us what makes good videos!

windows-movie-maker-2012-08-535x535Today we want to make video projects which include:

  • Photos and videos
  • Transitions
  • Text (title, captions, credits)
  • Narration

As well as adding in some new features:

  • Sound
  • Pan and zoom
  • Visual effects

Stock sound

Stock video

There are some downloaded to Pupil Shared > Videos as well as these…


Many vloggers use screen recording software to be able to show what they’re doing in a game, or talking through something they’re looking at on their computer. We’ve got a couple of ways of doing this:

  • CamStudio Lite (new shortcut on your desktop) – there’s an FAQ page here
  • MediaCore Capture (extension within Google Chrome) – there’s a help page here

Our next steps

This week we looked at adding:

  • Photos and videos
  • Transitions
  • Text (title, captions, credits)
  • Narration

to our videos.

Next week, we need to:

  • Check our list from this week to make sure we’ve done it all!
  • Add music (make sure it’s royalty free)
  • Work faster!
  • Add 2 captions to the same video/picture
  • Pan and zoom
  • Tinker with all the menu options to see if there are good features!

Making Videos

What does a good video look like?

What can we use to make our own?windows-movie-maker-2012-08-535x535

We’re going to use Windows Movie Maker to make our own. This is free with all Windows computers, so you can get it free at home if you haven’t already got it – remember to check with an adult first.

There’s a useful guide to Getting started with Windows Movie Maker

Some people have also shared tips on how to get some good effects with Movie Maker in various YouTube videos.


Where can we get stock videos from?

There are lots of websites where you can get stock videos from. Some of them you need to pay for, others you need to have an account with, and a few are free and easy! Here are some of the easiest ones I’ve found:

Today we want to make video projects which include:

  • Photos and videos
  • Transitions
  • Text (title, captions, credits)
  • Narration

We are going to the Isle of Wight in two days and will be staying in cabins. We are also going to be doing a bucket load of activities such as Jacobs Ladder, zip lining, quad biking (my favourite) and dragon boat racing. I really can’t wait for residential, it’s going to be SO much fun!

What dose it mean?

Mystery Skype is when you Skype a different class somewhere in the wold and you don’t no who it is and nether dose the teachers.So you need to ask loads of questions to find out where a outs they are. We use iPads to help us and also Atlesses

How have have we done? 

We have Skype many different classes. The first session we had we didn’t answer it full sentences so are teacher told us to improve in that so we did and then we got all different tips on how to inprove so we have got a lot better.

Hear are some pictures……..

Mystery Skype

imageimageToday in ICT we did another Mystery Skype and found out they where in Iowa which is in North America USA. They where in fifth grade 10-11 and the same age as us. We enjoyed guessing where they lived and we hoped to do it again. Now we are better at reading maps and we have also learnt how other people around the world live. As some schools don’t have a school uniform, or some schools learn differently. I think that we could visit the places we Mystery Skyped with, and actually meet them.

Our mystery skype

Today my class have done a mystery Skype we had to figure out where the other class was. When you do things were you communicate it can boast your child confidence. Our class done the mystery Skype  using the atlas and iPad’s we asked different questions.

Our class really liked doing mystery Skype and we hope we do it again

Mystery Skype

what dose it mean?

it means we can socilice with people from the other side of the world and we can lean more about our life still compare to theirs.  

how have we done it?

our teacher has got hold of people from other country’s and set up a Skype session where we will not be told where they are and we have to guess by asking yes no question after we have guessed we will just talk to each other.

how have we benefited it?

It has benefited us because we have now got quite a bit of knowledge about different country’s all around the world so we can now know where abouts certain states/country’s are on a map or globe.

what do we want to do next?

we know it’s not going to happen but I would like to maybe meet them or just do more Skype session I would really like if this could be a weekly thing so maybe we could get around quite a few country’s.

I really hope you like my post



This is one of our mystery Skype session

This is one of our mystery Skype session

Mystery Skype

Today we Skype some different children’s from a different countrie we new straight away because they had a American acsent and the rubbish thing about it is that they always kept disconnecting becuase there internet wasn’ that good so they had to use a white board.. To answer our questions



Today we did a MysterySkype, we had two groups, group 1 and group 2. I was in group 1, we had a MysterySkype with people from America. They were in grade 5 (year 6). Their location was: NorthAmerica, U.S.A, Iowa.

By doing MysterSkype we have built confidence and learnt many Geography skills by asking simple questions.

This is one of the images from our MysterySkype

This is one of the images from our MysterySkype

Mystery Skype……


Today in ICT we did Mystery Skype this isn’t our first time but it was still fun! What we know about collaborating!

Collaborating means working together so in Mystery Skype we worked together helping to answer questions!

we worked together then got to guess country’s like KANSAS, HUNGARY!

We got more confident talking to other people who live In a different way to us.

NEXT TIME- We should answer in full sentences so it’s not rude!



Mystery skype?

Today we did another Mystery skype and we found out that they were in Iowa. We had lots of fun trying to find them. We benefited from this because we learnt how other people live and study and we are also much better at reading maps than we were before. We have successesfully found them and it means that we can find and locate people around the world. For me my next step would be to Mabye go and visit the places that I have found out about. I really enjoyed the mystery skype and I hope to do it again.imageimageimageimage


Mystery Skype!!!!!

Doing mystery Skype helps us to learn where places are in the world. So far we have skyped people in KANSAS, HUNGERY, IOWA AND NORTH CAROLINA. We have got more confident since the first Skype. We want to Skype people near China or in Australia for our next call. HERE ARE SOME PHOTOS OF OUR LAST SKYPE CALL!

Tashis adventure

“Hush, child. Lets go and get the medicinal herb that your mother needs to get better. But we need to hurry, she’s getting worse.” She called a gathering of the tea pickers.

“Ladies! Ladies! This is an emergency! I need your help. Tashi’s mother is sick and she needs a medicinal herb that is only to be found on top of the Wall of Stones.” Sonam pleaded.

“I’ll go with you.” Tara volunteered. Sonam’s friend Tara agreed to go and get the herb which was on top of the wall of stones. The two set off to find the herb for Tashi’s mother. “Come on,” Tara said. “We have to get that herb.” So they went further into the forest.Tashi thought that her aunt Sonam and Tara would be OK. Sonam and Tara felt brave as they went through the forest.

“Is Tashi all right?” Sonam and Tara thought.

The air was so hot, it made Tara and Sonam sweaty. The journey was harsh and stoney as they went along the path and they felt VERY exhausted!

“I feel so grateful to have you next to me,” Tara murmured. “we need to hurry, and get that herb for Tashi’s mother.”

“Tara, I know,” Sonam said, out of breath. “Don’t panic.” However, Sonam’s ideas seemed to be amazing and it might just work. But the burning heat seemed to rush through their bodies from the mid day sun.

“How long is this journey going to take?” Tara muttered, sweating in the punishing heat.

“We’re almost there, Tara,” Sonam pleaded. “not much further.” Exhaustion and dehydration swirled around their bodies. Dehydrated plants were all around them, and there was NO drop of water to be seen. Tara and Sonam’s eyes were tired, it felt like forever! The cracked ground was causing blisters as they stumbled on the path.

Even though Sonam and Tara felt exhausted, they stumbled on the cracked ground to a TERRIFYING door of thorns.

“What is that?!” Tashi asked worriedly.

“I think I know what it is,” Sonam replied. “it’s a door of thorns!” The door could lead to a spooky, eerie forest, (which had an ice-cold stream and thorny trees). What could be rustling behind the thorny door? Then Tashi touched the handle of the door.

“OUCH!!! OW, OW, OW” Tashi screamed.

“I hurt my hand!” Sonam saw her hand, it was dripping with blood.

“Hey let me have a look.” Sonam said, taking her nieces cut hand.

“I will collect a leaf from the damp forest floor and wrap your hand.”

She opened the door and stepped inside, the forest they went through the thorns they jumped into the cold stream.

Tashi story so far by Paige!

“Hush my child lets go and get the medicinal herb that your mother needs to get better but we need to hurry she’s getting worse.” She called a gathering of the tea pickers “Ladies this is important can I have your attention put down your tea before it’s too late   .” shouted Sonam at the top of her voice .No one talked ,they needed to find the medicinal herb one way or a another but who will go ? The way was long and rocky and success could not be guaranteed   . Everyone was thinking of ways why not to go. Then suddenly  a worried voice came from the crowed …      “ I will go she is my mother .”Tashi said                                                                     “WHAT Tashi she can’t even find a grain of sand on a beach. “Another voice shouted. Shocked filled the air with a thousand tea bushes around them . She wanted to show them what she could do and set off…….  “oh no I’m going to regret this …”

Initially sonam’s idea had seemed to be the solution, however, now they have found them self-pushing their feet under the scorching sun , regret span around them .”I’m so glad I have you beside me why does this to last so long? “murmured Tashi as she slumped in a crack in the road seeking some well needed shade it seemed to be getting hotter ” I wish to find the herb your mother needs “ Sonam said I minute felt like a day dehydration enveloped not a drop of water could not  be seen an although the thought of giving up Tashi remembered this is for mother.

Before they knew it Tashi was pushing her feet in front of her whilst begging for sleep. A sudden shriek woke them up. Split second later, Tashi stopped and they were un aware of were they were. “We have no chance now !”   She said with dry, cracked lips. She felt like a disappointment standing under the scorching, bright sun.     “STOP” BELLOWED Sonam at the top of her voice “We are going to do this”  with there blurred eyes they saw what they needed a widely opened cave for shade. Hours past darkness filled the room to there surprise a bolder had blocked the entrance to the cave . What would they do now  ?

Niagara Falls, city in the Regional Municipality of Niagara, southeastern Ontario, Canada, a port on the Niagara River opposite Niagara Falls, New York. The city overlooks the Horseshoe, or Canadian, Falls cataract of Niagara Falls; the crescent-shaped cataract is 54 M (177 ft) high and carries nine times more water than its United States counterpart. Niagara Falls is an enormously popular tourist destination, and it also serves as a major source of electricity for Ontario.
In September 1998, the Ontario Casino Corporation publicly announced that Falls Management Company will be thepermanent operators of Casino Niagara. Falls Management Company, unveiled their plans for the permanent casinofor Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada – including a 350 room Hyatt Hotel, convention centre, world-class retail mall andentertainment centre

see if you can solve these riddles:

  1. I have a head of a cat I have feet of a cat but I am not a cat what am I?

2. He has married many women but he has never been married what is he?

3. If two’s company and three’s a crowd what is four and five?

4. If you have it, You want to share it. If you share it, you won’t have it. What is it?




Niagara falls

The Niagara Falls is one of the most iconic landmarks in the whole world and is truly one of the most beautiful too. The Niagara falls is located on the border of Ontario, Canada and New York, USA.The Niagara Falls are made up of 3 waterfalls, the American Falls, the Bridal Veil Falls and the Horseshoe Falls.The 3 waterfalls combine to produce the highest flow rate of any waterfall on earth and have the largest vertical drop wich is over 165 feet. The Niagara Falls were created by glacier activity around 10000 years ago. The Niagara Falls is also a hydropower producing large amounts of electricity. Scientists believe that the Niagara Falls will be gone in 50000 years because of erosion. surprisingly there is a small island in between horseshoe falls and bridal veil falls called Goat island.      

Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon is basically a 277 mile (446km) long rock formation, made by a river, also known as the Colorado River. The Canyon is located in Arizona, USA, and is considered one of the seven wonders of the world. At its narrowest point it stretches 4 miles (6.4 kilometres) across and at its widest point it stretches 18 miles (28km) across. The Grand Canyon is around 6000 (1800 metres) feet deep and the rock found at the bottom of the Grand Canyon (schist) is around 2 billion years old.

In September of 1540, Captain Garcia Lopez de Cardenas, exploring at the orders of conquistador Francisco Vázquez de Coronado, arrived at the south rim of the Grand Canyon with a small group of Spanish soldiers and their Hopi guides, at that time, the group “founded” the Grand Canyon we know and love today. That’s all about the Grand Canyon, here are some pictures!

Death Valley

I like Death Valley because it is extremely hot and it is one of the hottest places in the U.S.A ,it is  around  24 degrees right now.It has huge amounts of sand like big styled pyramids with deep sunken, fascinating holes. There are 5 hotels that you can consider for Death Valley but most people prefer to camp. Death Valley is home to over 35 different species of animals, including the Pupfish which only lives in Death Valley.The Badwater Death Valley region is approximately 36 meters deep, or -282 feet below sea level. Death Valley camp grounds has a maximum of 150,000 people at one time. Humans made their mark in Death Valley at least 9,000 years ago, with rock art and other artifacts left behind as evidence.The average yearly rainfall is 2.36 inches. Death Valley is the largest national park in the contiguous United States with around 3.4 million acres. Many scenes in the original “Star Wars” trilogy were filmed in Death Valley. Death Valley saw more than one million visitors in 2014 .And did you know that hedgehog cactus often grow at over 3,000 feet.And also i love Death valley because you can get a nice suntan – but remember your sun cream!

Mississippi River by Kiera

In Geography we have been learning about countries in North America and we have all chosen a place to research. I chosen the Mississippi River…so here are some facts about the Mississipppi river.                                                                                          

The Mississippi River is in Mississippi, it is about 2320 miles and at its widest point it is over seven miles width. The first bridge built over the Mississippi River was in 1855 and the first railway a year after in 1856.

Grand Canyon

In geography we are learning about North America. In our lesson today we learnt about some of the key land marks. I picked to learn about the Grand Canyon so here are some facts:

Many people consider it one of the 7 wonders of the world:

– It is all naturally made

– It is 277 miles in length

– The Colorado river runs through the centre of it

There are some facts about the Grand Canyon.


Niagara Falls information

The Niagara Falls are located on the border of Ontario, Canada and New York, USA and they are made out of 3 waterfalls, the American Falls, Horseshoe Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls. The Horseshoe Falls are the largest and the Bridal Falls are the smallest. The highest vertical drop is over 165 feet (50 metres). The Niagara River drains water from Lake Erie intoLake Ontario. Goat Island sits in the middle of Niagara Falls, between Horseshoe and Bridal Falls, a monument dedicated to Serbian- American inventor Nikola Tesla, sits on Goat Island.

At the Niagara Falls it is illegal and not very smart to go over the Niagara Falls however, lots of people tried it, some of them survived, some injured themselves and some were killed.

  1. What can you program the computer to do now? To glide different places and put characters in the script.
  2. What are you most proud of this afternoon? Getting my song nearly done with only a bit of help.
  3. What was the hardest part of this afternoon?How did you overcome this? I struggled with putting in new character but now I asked my friend and I will always remember it.   

Scratch dancing


I can now programme a character to dance.

I am proud that I can move animation to follow instructions for dance moves.

The hardest part was finding the right control to move the character.

To get through all of it I tried it on the animation to see if it works and read what it says on the control.

Our I.C.T Lesson!

Today, our class have been working on a project, on a program called Scratch, https://scratch.mit.edu/  .  We have 3 questions we need answer, so here we go!

1. What can you program the computer to do? I can make the computer do anything I can image, all thanks to Scratch!

2. What are you most proud of this afternoon? I am most proud of my different stick men changing to make it realistic!

3. What was the hardest part of this afternoon? The hardest part of the project was finding the right blocks!

cha cha slide dance             THIS IS MY WORK ON SCRATCH



I can now program the computer to to move left and right, to hide and show and to make talk and make sounds.


I am proud of the way i actually made it do the dance how i wanted it to.


The hardest part was making it exactly as the dance and getting the right things at the right time as the dance. I kept on trying because when i first tied scratch i did not do well.

In the 10/11/2015 Manor primary team WON in the netball team! At the start of the match Moorland took off with one goal, then Manor primary raced across and pulled one goal back. In the end the score was an amazing 12-1. It was extra special as this was the first time that there has EVER been a competitive game in Netball at Manor Primary.

Today in history we learnt about Gandhi and discussed whether he is a historical hero or a vicious villain. We all had different opinions about him but in my opinion he is a hero because he freed the Indians from the British and led a non- violent civil campaign.

The class loved doing about it, if you don’t now what it is i will tell you……perspective is when it gets smaller and also its 3D,when it gets smaller that’s when it looks like its far away so when you do it BIGGER that’s when it looks really close. People say that perspective needs lots of skill but our class created a little city and they all looked pretty good! You can do it with tutorials as well so you can try it at home!!!  


Have all you people heard about the super moon? The moon turned red one day really early in the morning and that they found water on  Mars.  Does this mean that there is real living things in space??

Cooking Home Work By Kiera

On Wednesday 7th October, after school i made a stir fry at my club, it was a competition. It was very easy as all the ingredients were there. The first things to go in were the Carrots and couchette, the had to cook a bit first. Then we added corn and pea pods, after that a small carrot nearly burnt. When we added the chicken (corn actually) along with the sauce. After we added the noodles, curly kale and mixed it up. We served it up on a plate with a tiny bit of kale and some peppers. We then got some water for the judges and my group won. We even got to try it.

In science we are learning about space. The other day during our science lesson, Miss Lowe asked us write down all the facts we already know about the solar system. So I decided to share with you some of the facts I know. Enjoy!

There are 8 planets altogether called: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune.

Mercury is the closest planet to the sun.     Neptune is the furthest planet away from the sun, which makes it super cold.     The sun is actually a massive star.     A year on Mars is 687 days.     It takes a whole day for Earth to do a whole spin once.     It takes a month for the Moon to orbit Earth once.     It takes a whole year for Earth to orbit the Sun once, that is why we have a year.     It may seem a bit crazy, but it takes Neptune 164.79 years to orbit the Sun.     Venus is the same size as Earth, however it spins the opposite way.     Uranus somehow was nocked on its side, which means it now has to spin on its side.

I hope you liked the facts!

The island

One lived a man but not like us he lived on a silent deserted island until a boat washed ashore and in that boat people had come the poor unclothed man was happy as finally someone had come to live with him on the poor deserted island. But the locals weren’t as happy about him than the man was about the new locals. The locals didn’t want him on the island as he looked different from everyone else the locals had an idea to send him back into the sea on his hand made raft that he had sailed on to get to the island but then one voice rose if the fisherman as he said not to send him of to the ocean as they were very dangerous and simply was a cradle of death. Eventually they had decided to shove him into the goat pen far on the other side of the island were he had no food or water and only some hay to make his bedding. One day when the men were at work the stranger appeared the men grabbed him shouted in his face but the poor stranger was only trying to tell them that he was Hungary and ha sent eat for days, then again the fisherman’s voice rose from the others and explained now that they had took him in it was also there responsibility to look after him so if he could work he can also earn his keep and he would also work for less. So the man went to the inn and helped make the food but no one would want to eat the food that he made it would put everyone off, neither did the carpenter as he was way to weak and didn’t know how to use a hammer or a saw and not did the priest as his voice would clash with all the others in the quire. As he didn’t get a job they decided to lock him up in the goat pen with scraps to eat and also placed guards to make sure he didn’t escape again. Rumours began to spread like the man eat bones and fear was spread across the island. Teachers gave lectures about him he was also used as a threat and nobody liked him. Then one day it came to a decision that they would get rid of the man for once and for all although the fisherman tried to stop them they didn’t listen they tied him up and through him on a boat and set fire to it, the locals said that they would never eat from the sea that brought them that man. The locals also built a huge tall wall guarding the island so no one could get in or out and that was the end of the island.

After that, my little brother is SSSSOOOOOOOO ANNOYING, if I haven’t told you, he loves Spider-Man, litterly, half of my room is about Spider-Man and Transformors, which he like as well, so yeah, he’s annoying.

Our Flags

We love writing posts and we love it even more when we get comments. Last week we got a comment from someone in the Seychelles. It is amazing to know that we have an audience out there, reading our posts. Every time we get a new flag we add to our display in the classroom and find out a little bit about the country.

At the moment the Seychelles is our favourite flag!

my sisters performance

On Saturday the 26th it was an awesome day because my big sister (Layla who is 13) went to somewhere to perform her singing. She was given usefull feedback and was told she was amazing but they asked her if she could she dance. She wasn’t too keen on dancing. However it was a really good opportunity and now she know what it feels like and what she needs to work towards.

Heroes and Villains

On Friday it was our class Assembly and we were looking at the charterer Maleficent.  We based our Assembly on her as she was a hero and a villain but we did something a bit like a cat walk. First we had some heroes then we had some villains . I was a person who spoke about the villains then Maleficent came on so we had heroes and villains and some one who was both hero and villain!
