Hansel and the stick

In 3056, a cold winters evening struck. Hansel was bored as he looked out of his window and saw snowflakes falling to the thick layer of frost. He was called down for dinner. As he slumped down the stairs, a magical swirl of wind appeared and so did a frail, old man.

” Hello young boy.”said the man. He reached into his pocket and pulled out a stick. It looked crumpled but there was something that made it unusual and unique.                                                                                        ” Want this?” asked the man, who was now gleaming with happiness.    “What is it?” questioned Hansel.                                                                  “It’s a magical invention. It will change the future!” squealed the man. He tapped the stick three times and the swirl of wind appeared once more.                                                                                                                “Hansel! Come now for your dinner!” shouted his mother.                        “Uhhh…. wait. Let me finish my homework.” said Hansel, in an unsure way.                                                                                                                The man continued,”If you step into here, it will take you to another dimension.”                                                                                                    That instant, Hansel stepped into the wind and the man followed. He could not believe his eyes : there was chocolate everywhere! The floor was made out of the finest Galaxy path and the fence was candy canes. Hundreds and Thousands were sprinkled everywhere and lollipops were trees.

As they walked down the path, the man began talking to Hansel.              “So this place is incredible, right? But only I have the stick that leads to this world and I can give it to you. Do you want it?”                                    “Yes please.” muttered Hansel as he began to lick the lollipop trees.         “Ok then.” mumbled the old man and he carefully handed the stick to Hansel. Now that the stick was in his arms, it felt like he had been rewarded.As he looked around himself, the stick felt like a treasure.          “By the way, the name of this brilliance is a Chomple. And do NOT give the stick to anybody. Make sure no-one notices it or even takes a peek at it. If it gets stolen, this world will be lost from us. There is no spare Chomple.”                                                                                                      Hearing all of this made the Chomple sound important. Hansel was even more frightened about the fact that he would need to be responsible for any damage caused to the Chomple. Would Hansel be able to handle the challenge…


Traditional stories

Jack and the Portal

In 2621 on the Planet Zordo, a young but poor boy carefully fixed his droid, which was the only source of income he had left. Whilst his mother was busy, he typed things on the micro tablet (that constantly shut down – especially in the middle of a game).

“Please fix the droid properly this time,” his mother begged. “And when you’ve finished, take it to the market to be sold,” she cried.

“Yes mother,” Jack groaned and nodded as he said it. Quickly, he picked up the droid and raced out of the door before he was shouted at again.

Within a few minutes he was already at the alley way which led to the market, when an old man in rags blocked his way.

“Where are you going with that droid boy?” asked the curious looking old man.

“I intend to sell it at the market, Sir,” Jack said through gritted teeth, feeling angry at being disrupted from his walk.

The peculiar old man examined the droid for a minute then looked back to Jack.

“I will trade your droid for this marvellous stick young man,” he said with an eager look on his face and a twinkle in his eye. Jack stared at the stick for a moment. It was crippled, useless and definitely worth less than the droid.

“Why would I want a good for nothing stick?” he replied, hoping that the man would just leave him alone. The old man was disappointed but persevered, he tried again to persuade Jack to do the trade.

Tap. Tap. Tap.

The sound of the stick was loud as it was knocked against the cobbled ground. “You see?” the elderly man said.

“See what?” asked Jack, more confused than ever.

“The portal, to another dimension.” The old man pointed to his left.

Puzzled, Jack walked over to the mysterious, multi-coloured hole that had appeared in the wall. As Jack figured out what he was looking at, he turned back to the old man and was speechless.

Finally, Jack shrieked, “I’ll take your trade old man!” Jack ran home as fast as he could the moment the old man gave him the stick.

“You’re back already; where’s the money then?” Mother asked.

“I didn’t get as far as the market,” Jack spluttered excitedly, “Because I traded the droid for this magic stick, which is so much better than money!”

Mother clenched her fists as her cheeks burned red, “What do you mean, you traded the droid?” mother bellowed, her cheeks were now a plum shade. “What were you thinking Jack?” she screamed. Jack hastily left the room before his mother exploded with rage, he was determined to see what was in the portal.

Tap. Tap. Tap

Again, an unusual, but incredible, swirling hole appeared right in front of Jack’s eyes. Should I sacrifice my life by going to another dimension? He thought to himself. But by the time he had thought about his decision, he had already been sucked in by the force of the stick. Jack looked around in amazement, the dimension was out of this world!

He ducked as something he didn’t recognise swooped over his head, when he looked up he saw an evil, giant like figure scurrying over to what looked like a secret safe.

Surreptitiously, the giant typed in a code and the lasers that were guarding the safe disappeared, letting him collect his gold. Suddenly, a hologram appeared of the elderly man which said – one tap of the portal stick will freeze time.

Jack couldn’t resist. He immediately tapped the magical stick onto the floor. BOOM! Everything was still, apart from Jack who went to search the extraordinary dimension that he found himself in.

“Gold!” Jack shouted and he grabbed as much as he could carry. Tap. The stick accidently fell and hit the floor. Instantly the giant turned towards Jack, he saw that he was trying to steal some of his gold – he was furious.

“Quick Jack, this way,” ushered the hologram of the old man. Jack jumped straight into the portal hole.

“Jack, get up, it’s time for you to set out for work!” exclaimed mother. Jack slowly peeled his eyes open. “What is this good for nothing stick doing down here?” mother asked. Silence filled the house as Jack took a long look around. Just as he was starting to think that the portal was just an extraordinary dream, he heard his mum shout, “Jack, Jack, GOLD!”

“Coming mother,” Jack shrieked, feeling overjoyed.

What we done in english

In english we had to write an emotive language  for a charater description. So each tables have there own target sa to use. My table target was 1.Fronted adverbial 2.Relitive Clause and 3.brackets 4.3 actions sentence

We had to use the same name as Miss Murphy idea witch was corol Ocean.

Round 52,845                                                                                                            to the nearest 10                                                                                                         the nearest 100                                                                                                           and the nearest 1000                                                                                                 MY EXPLANATION AND ANSWER                                                                         the nearest 10 was 52,850 because the rule is if you have a digit under 4 you round down but if you have 5 or over you round up so in the number 52,845 if i round up to the nearest 10 i would look at 45 and because its 5 i round up and get 50 so the answer is 52,850.                                                   the nearest 100 is 52,800  because if you look at it before it is rounded its 52,845 again and you will look at the tens digit. its 4 so i round down so then the 8 stays the same and 45 become 00 so the answer is 52,800.           FINAL ANSWER AND EXPLANATION FOR ROUNDING TO NEAREST 1000    the answer is 53,000 the answer is this because if you look at the eights digit and because its bigger than 5  you would round the 2 to 3 which makes 53,ooo 




Round 52,845 to to the nearest 10   the nearest 100   and nearest 1000


the nearest 10 is 52,850 because the rule for rounding is if the number is 5 or over round up and if its four or under it has to stay the same.To round to the nearest 10 I have to look at the ones [units] so its 5 so i have to round up to 52,850.


The nearest 100 is 52,800 because we are rounding to the nearest 100 so your looking at the 10 digits [tens] its 4 so its going to round to 52,800.


 To round to the nearest 1000 i look at the 100 digits [hundreds] its 8 so it is going to round to the number 53,000.                                               


All about rounding by Alicja

In year 6 we were working on our rounding skills 😃. In rounding we had round to the nearest 10,100,1,000 and 10,000. If the value of the digit is 5 or above, round up AND if the value of the digit is 4 or below, round down. Try to answer this question in the comments below: Round 23,659 to the nearest 1,000 (I will respond to your comment if its right or wrong).


Facts About Ears or Eyes system

In year 6, we have been looking on google  Chrome about facts about eyes or ears system we had a group with 4 people my group was sadia,Emmanuel,Preethya my group done facts about ears first here are some facts that we have found.


Ever wondered why every time you catch cold, you go dumb? I mean, you lose your voice! That’s because middle ear is connected to the throat using a tube named Eustachian tube


Ears are organs designated for hearing. But, did you know that there is a limit till which ears will behave properly. The moment a sound exceeds the natural hearing limit, our ears will buzz!



My second day in school.

My second day in school. Im new here😃. My first lesson in this school is english🎓.In poland im not the best in english . How as im there even better for me to learn…good.

Round 52,845

A to the nearest 10 For the first thing I did was I look at the tens it was between 45 then I said five or over round up and four or below stays the same.The nearest ten was 52,950. How did I do it first I did I looked at the ten The I new that 5 or over round up 4 or below stays the same.

b the nearest 100  the first I did was I looked at the one hundred digit then I looked at which is closer it was five or over rounds up.i looked at the units then which is closer then the answer was 52,900

c to the nearest 1,000 I looked at the hundred digit then I looked at the one thousand digit.



Fist I look at the tens look at                                          Round 52,845 :                     the units and if its over five I round up and if                                                    its below five then I have to  keep the  tens                                                                        the same.

a) the nearest 10: (52,850)

b) the nearest 100: (52,000)

c) the nearest 1,000:(52,900)

Round 71,458:

a)the nearest 10:(71,460)

b) the nearest 100: (71,500)

c) the nearest 1,000:(72,000)


Convincing a sceptic

In math in year 6 we have been convincing our sceptic mine was Leo. I needed to make a square out of paper and I needed to make Leo believe that it was a square. so what I tolled Leo was that if I unfolded it the four outer triangles made up a half so if I took two of those triangle away it would be a square . Leo was convinced. After Leo and I went up to show the class. I was impressed with what I’d done. My favorite part was convincing Leo. It will help me in the future because if someone wasn’t convinced that they needed that amount of change then I would need to convince them why it’s that amount of money. I learnt that we always need to convince other people .

My favorite one was convincing the sceptic because I think I was the best at it on my table and Leo was the best sceptic too.I also like the fact that we were convincing other people.


Growing shapes and making mistakes

In maths, year 6 have been investigating Growing shapes and making mistakes. What we did was that, we had to explain what we noticed without using numbers in your justification. After  that we had finished that
we were aloud to use numbers and mathematical lan
guage to justify are answer.What i learned was that there is always a pattern to solve you answer. The skills we developed were collaboration,self believe and many more.The skills i can take away fromthis is that, don’t give up if it gets hard,use you noticing skills to help you solve your learning.The way this could help you in the big wold is that, it can help you with if you are a bissnes  manager you need to find a pattern if something is going wrong or if you need to get some change you find a pattern to see if you need more or they gave you less.

My favorite one was convincing a sceptic, because if you were the sceptic you had to ask tough questions to them say you can get more evidence of them. some of the questions were, how do you do that?, can you elaborate on that ?and can you proove that to me? We found it very hard do think of questions that would push the other person to there abilities. As you can see, in the picture we were all working collaboratively and using there self believe as well. There were three levels to be convincing

1.convince your self:easy

2.convince your friend:medium

3.convince your sceptic:hard



pattern seeking

In maths, our class year six have been investigating about patterns and how Fibonacci ‘s sequence actually work.On Tuesday we watched a video of Fibonacci ‘s sequence .Then we had a pyramid and we had to find the number ‘s that were missing ,I found out the pattern very quickly and the pattern was that the middle number ‘s were ,one plus one is two then three plus three  is six and it keeps going.Then for the last pattern seeking we had to add the first three number ‘s to see if you can to get the answer but they need to be consecutive number ‘s . I really enjoyed because looking at patterns in maths it ‘s probably the most important and it is the most important thing because without patterns it’s basically no maths.In the future I believe that it will also be in secondary school until year nine or year ten.

Manipulating Numbers

In maths , we have been using 4’s . We could use any operation but we had to use 4 4’s , we had to make the the numbers 1-20 . We had to use  Resillence ,Team work ,Self belive and Consiontrasion .In the future, this will help me in save money and buggets . If i went to the shop and got change but it was the rong I could check and make sure I get the right amount.

My favroute is pattern seeking because we got to learn about fibonacci sequence 3,5,8,13 . we got to watch a cool clip it told use about spirals is in darth vadares mask and in a pine cone .


Brain crossing

In maths we had to look at a group of patterns and see what we could see, by being as imaginitive as we could .We learnt that we can see lots of patterns by looking at a piece of paper .The skills i developed were collaberation,thinking hard,consontrating,team work and being helpful.In the future it will help you because it will make you learn more about patterns in maths and as you get older you begin to see more patterns so patterns will help everyone and everywhere.

My favirout is manipulating numbers because we had to use four fours and make the number four .We could not use less than four fours and we could not use more than four fours.It was fun and chalanging.



Our trip to swimming in year 6
