Our climate is changing

Many students in the blogging challenge have done some great research on this topic for their BAD post. There will be a post highlighting some of their posts over the weekend. But having lived on this earth now for just over half a century (this makes me old …lol) I have started noticing in the […]

Week 6: Are you a BAD writer?

I hope every participant in the student blogging challenge is going to be a BAD writer on Thursday 15 October.   ”Why be a BAD writer on just that day?” you ask.  “Isn’t Miss W shouting when she uses capital letters in blogging?” No, she isn’t. She is using an acronym.  BAD stands for Blog Action […]

Over the weekend, my neighbours and I held a regatta out on the street in front of our houses.  A regatta you say – but you need water for that. Well look below at the photos that I took. One of the neighbours called the ABC and they sent down a photographer and reporter.  Our regatta […]

Practise your tables and earn rice

Thanks again to Larry Ferlazzo for this note about the improvements to the free rice website.  I had been to this site a few times, earning rice to be donated. But now instead of just English vocabulary, you can practise your tables or learn the capital cities of countries around the world.  If you are […]

BBC games

Another great game from the BBC KS2 Bitesize website.  If you are interested in science, maths and language then this game is for you.  It is interactive in that you have to do things in a certain order before the games begin on each slide.  When I first came up against these interactive sites, I […]


Let’s improve our earth

There are some new websites being produced where, by answering questions, you can help the environment or those people in worse conditions than you.
