Breaking News- 20.06.11

This week Aman and Bismah are the editors. We were in charge of recording the sound bites and fitting them together. We also had to add jingles and stingers to link the stories together. We think it is a brilliant show so please leave your comments.

Don’t forget to comment on the Radio Blog too.

Explore the human body- amazing!

Use this great website to explore the human body. If you click on the left tool bar you can show different body systems (bones, muscles, organs etc) and then if you click on a part on the diagram it will tell you the name of that body part.

I think this is great fun and very useful! Let me know what you think. Miss Martindale,m:0,sk:0.43,c:0.43,o:1,ci:1,l:1,n:1&nav=-4.6,117.76,95.4&sel=p:;h:;s:5422;c:-0.8;o:-0.9

Avatar story- Mya

Imagine a world where picturesque, exquisite plants are almost as tall as buildings.
Well if you enjoy thinking about this strange, bizarre adventure listen carefully as I begin my story.
It all started when I was wondering about trying to find my way around.
“Excuse me I’m Clare, Tom’s sister, could you please show me where the BYN laboratory is to Pandora?” I politely asked.
An old lady scruntinized and replied in a croaky voice “Down the hall and on your right”.
I thanked her and continued my intriguing journey on my wheel chair unfortunatly.
As I arrived in the lab I met the cruel, savage manager who made me feel so pointless. I knew she was only doing her job and trying to make money however there was something about her that I didn’t like.
In about a few minutes time I had learnt that there was a captivating, shimmering stone in a world called Pandora that costs a fortune. My job was to travel to Pandora in a hi-tech machine and return that stone back to where it belongs (the BYN labatory).
Feeling courageous I stepped out of my wheel-chair and lay down in a cramped cage, shut my eyes and began my engrossing adventure…
Chapter 2
Intrepidly I awoke and gently rubbed my bleary eyes. Although it usually takes me a while to get up I jumped strait out of my scientific cage and out into the Pandora world.
Feeling adventurous I swooshed my bright yellow tail and set out to explore. I saw mountains of trees towering above me, a sky blue ground below me and a deafening screech in the distance.
What was that awful noise? On the inside I felt ever so terrified but on the outside I payed a bold smile upon my face. A few seconds later all was silence. An absorbing silence. A while later I heard footsteps coming towards me.
At the glimpse of an eye I saw two pale brown horns beside me…
I calmly turned my body to face the beast and noticed this unusual creature had dark red skin which glowed in the sunlight. Feeling slightly more courageous I quietly muttered
“Err, Hi my name’s Clare, what’s your name?
“RAHHHHHHHHH”! The creature angrily replied.
Never before have I been so petrified in my life, I knew there was only one option: RUN!

Chapter 3
Unfortunately my plan had failed, it was even worse now because I was being chased by beast!
GOSH! my footsteps felt tiny compared to the stomping of the beast!
Fortunatly as I ran for my life! I came across another young avatar named John who spoke to the aggressive beast in his language. Responsibly the savage, boisterous beast listened to John and calmly sat.

Avatar story by Kyle and Shannon

Imagine a world where there are trees as tall as towers, the creatures are vicious and ferocious as a T-Rex and the flowers are as dazzling as the sun.
It all started when there was a man called Tony Harte and his best friend is Shanto and she is a scientist. Even though they were on a planet called Pandora to complete a mission to save the planet from a bomb that was about to explode they also needed the shiny, red vibrant stone worth £10,000000 and the Avatars had got it in Pandora!
“Hurry up Tony get in to your avatar body” yelled Shanto “ok ok” replied Tony.
“So is this my avatar body?” Said Tony.
“It sure is” said Shanto
“get in the time is almost up.” Said Shanto.
Tony’s legs where shaking and his hands were shivering because he was about to get into the avatar machine and be united with his avatar for the very first time. BANG BOOM! Then Tony was in his avatar body. Tony sat up and realized he could walk which he hadn’t been able to do for the last six year due to an accident that left him in a wheelchair. He was so relieved to be able to feel his feet again that he got up and kept hitting his tail at everyone. So Shanto came and said “wake up Tony!” Then Tony woke up.
“What?” yelled Tony then he got out of the machine
“GO back in and listen to the people or your fired, don’t mess around its extremely dangerous out there” yelled Shanto. After some time Tony went back into the machine and was connected to his avatar body again and then Shanto followed. Eventually they went into Pandora. Tony ran right and BANG there was a deafening noise! There was a six headed monster, Tony really felt like hitting it. Then Shanto shouted “NO”
“Why?” Tony asked.
“RAAAW!” screamed the monster, by this time it was too late and the monster charged at me. SO Shanto shooted that massive creature. Then shanto said to the creature “do you ever give up” tony said that’s it and killed the monster the monster RAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWed shanto said “why did you kill it” because it tried to kill us do you understand. Yes yelled shanto. The next day shanto said get in your body. Okay shanto said tony 1 minit`1 he was in his avatar and he waked up and saw some avatars dead and tony saw the same monster looking around the place so tony hid under the tree and he saw some of the avatars and he saw his friend shanto he said to shanto what the hell happened hear shanto said nothink the monsters killed some the avatars and they have took them to eat them so they saw some miny monsters and tony go bitten buy one and shanto killed all of them so ugly people came and took them and tide them up a and we saw a massive bomb and we said lets defuse that bomb. Then some of the avatars came and saved us. And the bomb had 45 seconds so tony defused the bomb and they lived in Pandora forever.

All about South Africa By Harjun

I wrotethis blog post at home last night.

We are researching about South Africa. In South Africa there used to be a lot of racism. Black people were kicked out of Johannesburg just for being black. Nelson Mandela the ex South African president tried to protest against apartheid. For protesting he had to go to jail for 27 years. When he came out of prison he became the president of South Africa in 1994.

Some of us also learnt about the wild life in South Africa. There is Panthera Leo (African lion), Panthera Tigris (African tiger) and there is African snakes like the Black Mamba, Puff Adder and Blacksoom. We are going to swap groups over in the next lessons.

Difference Between Two Times

It is sometimes important to be able to work out the difference between two times. For example, you may need to know how long you are going to have to wait between buses or how long a journey will take. This set of activities will help you with your ability to work out the answers.

Wild around the World

In year 4 we had a message from Mrs Griffith’s friend he has gone away on a trip to Borneo which is an island in Malaysia. He likes to research about the countries and animals he travels to. After Borneo he is going to Australasia or Africa. He has asked year 4 to find information about Australasia and Africa because he has been too busy making a shelter for the animals that live in Borneo. We have been doing all kinds of different activities like art, researching about Countries on the continents of Australasia and Africa and finding the different countries on a map.
