I’m writing about the best teacher in the world. Mrs Djivraj gives us chocolate cake if we show teamwork skills and behave. We have filled our marble jar again and now we are going to watch a movie eat crisps, popcorn and have some drinks. Mrs Djivraj gives us prizes and dojos.

How to use the gears on your bike (homework)

Avoid crossing your chain

One thing you don’t want to do is “cross your chain” – this means riding in a big front gear (the chain ring furthest from you).

Crossing the chain causes it to be in a diagonal line, and this might make a nasty noise, and will damage it over time through stretching.



When you do change gear, try to pedal softly as you change, especially if you are on a rough surface, as applying pressure mid change can also result in you losing your chain.

Thank you for listening and I hope you have learnt how to ride you bike and where and when to change  the gears.


Mayans homework

The Mayas or Mayan people made their homes in a place called Mesoamerica. The Mayan culture was around the 1000 bce until 1697 ce, the Maya people believed that they could comunicate with their gods through human sacrifice. Maya shared their culture and religion but each city had their own rules and its own ruler. The cities never came together to form a single empire as the Mayan kings were always fighting with each other for gifts and prisionores to sacrifice to the gods. The Mayas thought that hunting and fishing where very important activities and they were also excellent beekeepers and raised stingless bees to make honey.

Book Title: George’s Marvellous Medicine

Writer: Roald Dahl

Type: Fiction

Characters: George,Grandma, Mr Krankle,Mrs Krankle

My Opinion : I think it was a very nice book and it is one of the best books for kids  plus it’s a good fiction book. I rate this 2 stars out of 3 stars.

I enjoyed the fact that the grandma was quite digusting .

He could of added a little bit  of you know a mystry.

Fundamentally, what happened was that George made a medicine for his mean old grandma but the thing  I could tell you is that it wasn’t a very nice one either it was a smelly and the most revolting medicine I have ever seen .

What are fossils? Fossils is something that is  used to identify geologic periods.

When an animal or a plant dies it may fall into the mud or the soft sand and make in the dirt.

The body is then covered by other layers of mud or sand!

And they are very hard people can not pick it up.

How your heart works

The human heart is one of the hardest-working organs in the body. On average, it beats 72 times a minute. As the heart beats, it provides pressure so blood can deliver oxygen and important nutrients to tissue all over your body through an extensive network of arteries. In fact, the heart steadily pumps an average of 2,000 gallons of blood through the body each day.

Your heart is located underneath your ribs, and between your two lungs.

The Heart’s Parts

The heart’s four chambers function as a double-sided pump. The right side of the heart takes in oxygen-depleted blood from the organs. This blood is delivered to the heart through the veins. The chambers on the left side pump oxygen-rich blood out to the body through arteries.

The heart’s four chambers are:

  • Right atrium: This chamber receives oxygen-depleted blood that has already circulated around the body and pumps it into the right ventricle.
  • Right ventricle: The right ventricle pumps blood from the right atrium to the pulmonary artery. The pulmonary artery sends the deoxygenated blood to the lungs, where it picks up oxygen.
  • Left atrium: This chamber receives oxygenated blood from the lungs and pumps it to the left ventricle.
  • Left ventricle: The thickest of all the chambers, the left ventricle is the hardest working part of the heart as it pumps blood throughout the whole body.

The heart’s two atria are both located on the top of the heart. They are responsible for receiving blood from your veins.

The heart’s two ventricles are located in the bottom of the heart. They are responsible for pumping blood into your arteries.

Your atria and ventricles contract to make your heart beat and to pump the blood through each chamber. Your heart fills up with blood before each beat, and the contraction pushes the blood out into the next chamber. The contractions are triggered by electrical pulses that start from the sinus node, or sinoatrial node (SA node), located in the wall of your right atrium.

The pulses then travel through your heart to the atrioventricular node, or AV node, located near the center of the heart between the atria and the ventricles. These electrical impulses keep your blood flowing in proper rhythm.

The heart has four valves that separate each chamber so that, under normal conditions, blood cannot flow backwards. These valves can sometimes be replaced if they become damaged.

The heart’s valves are:

  • Tricuspid (right AV) valve: This valve opens to allow blood to flow from the right atrium to the right ventricle.
  • Pulmonary valve: This valve opens to allow blood to flow from the heart into the lungs, so that it can receive more oxygen.
  • Mitral (left AV) valve: This valve opens to let blood flow from the left atrium to the left ventricle.
  • Aortic valve: This valve opens to let blood leave the heart and be pumped around the body.
