Enid blyton

Enid Blyton was born on 11 August 1897 in East Dulwich, London, the eldest of three children she was a famous arthur in fact my favourite author. 

Her father to Thomas Carey Blyton was a cutlery salesman, and his wife Theresa Mary. Enid's younger brothers, Hanly and Carey were born after the family had moved to a semi-detached villa in Beckenham, then a village in Kent. A few months after her birth Enid almost died from whooping cough, but was nursed back to health by her father, whom she adored. Thomas Blyton ignited Enid's interest in nature; in her autobiography she wrote that he "loved flowers and birds and wild animals, and knew more about them than anyone I had ever met". He also passed on his interest in gardening, art, music, literature and the theatre, and the pair often went on nature walks, much to the disapproval of Enid's mother, who showed little interest in her daughter's pursuits. Enid was devastated when he left the family shortly after her thirteenth birthday to live with another woman. Enid and her mother did not have a good relationship, and she failed to attend either of her parents' funerals.

In 1920 Blyton relocated to Chessington, and began writing in her spare time. The following year she won the Saturday Westminster Review writing competition with her essay "On the Popular Fallacy that to the Pure All Things are Pure". Publications such as The Londoner, Home Weekly and The Bystander began to show an interest in her short stories and poems. Blyton's first book, Child Whispers, a 24-page collection of poems, was published in 1922. It was illustrated by a school friend, Phyllis Chase, who collaborated on several of her early works.
‘Phyllis chase married name Phyllis Samuel’

Many of Blyton's series, including Noddy and The Famous Five, continued to be successful in the 1960s; by 1962, 26 million copies of Noddy had been sold. Blyton concluded several of her long-running series in 1963, publishing the last books of The Famous Five (Five Are Together Again) and The Secret Seven (Fun for the Secret Seven); she also produced three more Brer Rabbit books with the illustrator Grace Lodge: Brer Rabbit Again, Brer Rabbit Book, and Brer Rabbit's a Rascal. In 1962 many of her books were among the first to be published by Armada Books in paperback, making them more affordable to children.

Today at DT I made rainbow bagels with Lucy, Summer, Marco and Paisley 

A struggle for me was not being able to put the food gel coloring through the entire thing
including the middle 

My favourite thing was that I got to do it with my friends 

I learnt never to eat food colouring it tastes terrible and colours your mouth 

The three L's

All that I'm after is love life and laughter
I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more powerful than history. That dreams are more important than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for life. And I believe that love is stronger than death.

What do you do when you get off a plane? Do you wait around? No you run toward the person waiting for you, you run as fast as you can to see your lost family member. And why I'm here... to bring out the happiness in every one and to learn, but right now I'm here to talk.

Love and laughter brings a purpose to life with no purpose there wouldn't be a life worth living there would be a huge landscape with no people, so I believe love and laughter really is the most important thing in the world right now, 
so I think love and laughter = life

Laughter brings a special connection between others.
By laughing you access the neocortex which is the part of your brain that lets you think, it's also a coping mechanism for many different things. You all may disagree with me but you are really disagree with your self 
I believe that we need more love and laughter + life if we truly believe in the future. 
So it's up to you if you want to make a change or not.
And now a quote

When I felt proud

Was when I was the only one to score.
It was the last game for the term.  It was 20/0 to them.
I was sweating so much and then I got the ball every thing seemed to slowmo like in a movie.
I jumped. Shot, and it went in. I was ecstatic.
Even though we lost I had the glory of being the only one who scored!!

discovery time

discovery time 
Today at  discovery time I helped  Romae, Marco and Summer make cinnamon roll ups ( to make cinnamon roll ups you cut the crusts off white breed,then mix cinnamon white sugar and butter together then spread it on the breed roll the breed up and put it on a hot pan)
Which I LOVED at the end  Romae let  Marco and I eat the leftover cinnamon butter no a good idea.
A learning strategy I worked on was listening to instructions and getting things done. The roll I played was taking turns and doing the right thing. 
I really enjoyed working as a team and learnt that we all have strengths.

( Spotlight more like low light literally and as in the sense that it was the worst game of spotlight ever and I mean ever!!! no one has ever said that every game of spotlight was safe and if they have they were WRONG!!! )
Ok we were on the second day of camp and we were just about to play a game of Spotlight. Everyone was so excited but I was nervous. The adults came up with a new version of the game they told us how to play(the kids had to start at one end of the field and the adults were on the playground with the torches the object for the kids was to get to the playground without the adults spotting you ). Now we get to the bit that the story is all about. We had just started playing when Lulu hurt her leg then a few minutes later Megan tripped up on the stones. We were dropping like flies. Luckily by then it was so dark and cold that we had to stop and go into the kitchen for dinner. I could barely get to the kitchen. When I got there I sat down and then got a hot chocolate and sat back down again. By then my ankle was killing me but not literally because if I was really being killed I wouldn't be able to tell you the story. I had one tiny tiny sip of my hot chocolate and started crying not because the hot chocolate was as hot as lava but my ankle was so PAINFUL. I must've tripped up. I had a sit down on the couch. Someone put an icepack on my ankle the next day my ankle was much better and I went to the cemetery. 

Words of wisdom DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME KIDS even if you are superman although he does have invulnerability... hmmm ok maybe if you’re superman.

My writing reflection 

I used a simile when I said  the hot chocolate was as hot as lava
I used a Hyperbole when I said one tiny tiny sip of my hot chocolate

Discovery time reflection

Today for D.T I made a canvas with a quote by Dr Seuss for my Mum’s birthday. I wanted to make her a truly special keepsake something special that  my brothers  wouldn’t have thought of. I know my Mum would have been very proud of what I had achieved with the help of Miss V.
