Puzzles in class!!!

We have been looking at really hard puzzles and  trying to slove them, it is linked with professor Layton on the DSI, it is a really fun way of learning . We were told to make a class puzzle book, you could use one of your own puzzles or Mrs Harrison would lend you one of her puzzle cards to use. I used one of my own- Ramon got in trouble with Inspector Chemly and got send to S.T Mystere Jail. He was locked in a cell with a steel door(no hloes in it) so he couldn’t break down, no windows and rock hard walls. All that was in the cell was a piano, a calender and  springs. How did he eat, drink and get out.

A- He used the DATES on the calender as food, he DRUNK the springs(water) and he used the KEYS on the piano to get out. If you got it right then well done!!!

National Galleries Competition

We have chosen our photos and written our stories about them for the National Galleries Competition which Port Ellen Primary does every year. Sometimes we’re lucky and other times we’re not but it’s fun to do any way. This year I did my story from the point of view of a horse. Elinor in our class is really good at writing and I hope she gets placed.
