Today was the exciting first round of our Readers Cup! At the end of this blog post give us your feedback on the Readers Cup as a PMI (like you did after Victorian Day). Please comment on three positive things, three interesting things and three negatives (if you can think of any!) You can comment on both the book lists and how we have organised things so far. Thanks. Your feedback will help make a fantastic learning experience even better next year!

1. The readers cup first round was good to test your brain to see if you knew the books questions answers.
2. The quiz was fun because you would have to work as a team to get the questions correct.
3. The beginning was well done because we sat in our classrooms with our team with the quiz and a horn went when we could start.
1. The quiz was hard and easy becuase some bits of the quiz were in the middle of the book or the beginning.
2. Sometimes the quiz would give you a question and you have to type down the answer and you might have to guess!
3. Talking to each other was a little bit difficult because if we say the answer aloud people will here and copy us!
No Negatives! :)

It was fun to read all those books which were in the readers cup.
It was all so really interesting because we were very competitive to go through the next round and not get eliminated.
It was also exciting when we had to plan to talk with out speaking so the other team wouldn't hear us so they couldn't steal our answer.


The bad part was when I wanted to read another book which wasn't in the readers cup but if we didn't read the books in the readers cup we could have got a disadvantage.


It was really interesting when were competitive to win the gold trophy and get
Your group name carved on it.

It was interesting because usually you have write the answers on a piece of paper but this time we typed it .


I enjoyed this quiz because we also got to do a practice quiz and a real quiz.
I also enjoyed it because i got improve the skill of reading not to fast and if you skipped anything that part could be in the quiz.

I think the readers cup was positive because it made me read more. It was good fun to have a competition and because I was on a team it made me not want to let the team down.
I think the readers cup was interesting because it was interesting to know who was going to win. It was interesting that there was different types of books.
I think the readers cup was negative because no league table to tell who is 2nd and 3rd, and I think there was not enough books in the basket so you would have to borrow a book from a different class.

I really liked the reader’s cup because I liked the pressure of the other teams.

I also liked that I had read almost all the books and so I could make sure something that my other team members thought was right.

What was bad though was really depressing because it was that our computer did not work and so we thought that we were wasting so much of our time. Nothing else was bad.

I liked the readers cup was helping me a lot with my reading and persuaded me to read more.
Also because you got to try new books and new authors that you have never tried before.
I also liked the readers cup because you got to work as a team and communicate a lot.

I didn’t like the readers cup because you were worried that if you don’t finish the book on time and you were willing to win so you read the book to quickly and you didn’t even understand it.
Also because some books I didn’t really get.
And because some books you don’t want to read because you don’t really like it and your team forces you to.

I thought the readers cup was interesting because you got to read a variety of books.
Also because some of the books had movies and you could watch the movie and then you could read the book and see if they are the same or not.

It was fun and nervous but mostly nervous because it it was scary that we would lose!

We had some internet problems.That's all.

I found interesting when we had to answer 40 QUESTIONS!!!!!

Comment By Josephine 

The first quiz was quite hard but fun!
I found it interesting because it was just like a test but for a group and that we had to do it in silence ! If we wanted to talk we had to write it on a mini white board and show the group or whisper.
I found the questions interesting!
I cant beleive I made to the finals.
I found it hard to answer question 6!

I really liked the readers cup because it was chalenging and i like the questions they give us but some were easy.

I did not really like how some of the questions that they gave us were realy hard and the tables were so close together so the other tables can see what we were doing.

It was really intresting to know who won the readers cup and it was book worms in our class.

I liked it when we where in groups trying to do the answers. I like when the readers cup was challenging.
I liked it when Miss Carly sorted out the Readers Cup and it was fun. The interesting thing about the readers cup is that when the book worms won from the first quiz have fun book worms. I have no negative. Thank you

1: The positive bit of the readers cup was the online test because the test was a really easy question and most of them were a multiple choice question and the book I like the most is bridge to terabithia.

2: Minus bit of the readers cup is the final round because our buzzer is not loud so we couldn't answer every question.

3: It was interesting because all of the books and the question were a little bit hard and we all most forgot all the question.

Children of the Forest

A message from Mrs Sharp:

Ever thought about the difference a pair of shoes can make?  For the Children of the Forest a pair of shoes can be the difference between going to school or missing out on the opportunity to be educated and gain an identity.  

Harper Cooper in 7T is collecting used school shoes so that more kids from Children of the Forest can go to school. 

Please leave your used school shoes in the collection boxes at the front of school, near the transport office.


Also, a message from MR David don't forget to start collecting your 5 and 10 baht coins for Busking Day! Innocent

Don't forget - interclass football is happening first thing on Monday morning. You have been given permission to come to school in your PE / football kit, but then PLEASE do not forget to pack your school uniform and your school shoes to change into later! (I will not be impressed if I have students walking around in studs all day!) It's going to be a fun tournament and I look forward to seeing all of your awesome sporting attitudes!

To play, you will need: 

Football boots

Shin pads

Long Ssocks

PE Shorts

Class coloured shirts - Yellow

 Patana hat

Named water bottle – (You'll need it!)

Slap on lots of sun screen! Cool


Secondly, you need to be thinking about your 'act' for Busking Day, which is on WEDNESDAY 19TH JUNE.

Our slot on the hardcourt starts at 10am, after break.  Sign up sheets are in our classroom - you need to have added your name and any equipment you may need to borrow by Wed 29th May

 Mr Sharp will be checking any musical performances from that date.  Other acts need to be seen by me first too, please. And Main Stage auditions take place on Wed June 5th.

Just a polite reminder: no foam (or other 'toxic' substances) or water. And no selling or services - performing only, please!

Here is a link to the PowerPoint you were shown in Mr Ben's assembly yesterday:


Thirdly, please give your parents the permission slip for our Kidzania trip at the end of term. I need the replies back by Friday 31st May at the latest. Thanks.



Next, please keep reading your 'Reader's Cup' books over the long weekend and check out the library blog for more quizes and to add your own questions as comments...



Lastly, here are some more Victorian facts and games to keep you occupied over the long weekend! Explore the painting and enjoy the links from the 2nd website (below).

Listen out to the different names of the jobs they did in the mines too...

Published Tuesday, May 21, 2013.
Last updated: Tuesday, May 21, 2013

For your literacy home learning tonight I would like you to produce a film poster advertising our forthcoming film ‘The Game', based on the story of Oliver Twist and directed by the world famous, multiple Oscar winner (your name). A4 please, so we can stick it in your literacy books with the film script. You can do it on the computer or by hand. You can email it to me to me to print if you would like, but I will only print in black and white.


Well done all for your completed paper based home learning from your Gruel, Grime and Greatness curriculum theme.

Try to complete the second phase soon.

I am looking forward to us sharing a variety of well-presented and interesting pieces.

I would also like to check you are on track with researching, thinking about and preparing for your presentation. In your general work books please make brief notes using the questions below as a prompt. We will talk this through on Thursday and I can give you advice on how to further improve your presentation. Here is the original home learning post with advice on what I am expecting to see and hear in your presentations. 

All home learning is due on Friday 7th June in (two and a half weeks’ time). We will also start hearing the presentations on this date.
