Fantastic Foxton Locks

A few months ago,  we went to Foxton Locks for a picnic. It was beautiful weather and was quite busy. I opened a few locks for different barges; it was really tricky.

There is a museum there as well that has a coal game in where you have to put the coal in an engine to move the boat forward. If you don’t put enough in, you have to start again. It also has things that explain how locks work and a barge that you can go in to listen to a story. I really like the Foxton Locks museum.

I really enjoyed my time at Foxton Locks and want to be a lock keeper one day.

My Homemade Lego Batman Trailer. It’s AWESOME!!

These are 2 different Lego Batman movie trailers; I made one the other is the real one. Which is better?

This is my Lego Batman Movie Trailer:

I made mine by taking lots of photos and turning them into a video. Then I used iMovie to add sound.

Blue Peter – Diamond Badge

A few months ago, I downloaded a form to get a blue peter badge, the Diamond Badge. This badge was made for the Blue Peter 60th birthday and is a rare limited edition badge. I managed to get one and it looks really special.

To get the badge I had to say I had:

 

Done something different in 2018 (I did kayaking)

Inspire others ( I inspired Georgia to write more stories)

Amazing experience ( I had an amazing experience at Condover)

Memory Mission ( Daddy remembered making Tracey Island from Thunder Birds)

Others I’ve helped ( I have helped lots of people at school with their Maths)

New Blue Peter fans ( Mummy is someone I shared my Blue Peter love with)

Design your own diamond badge (I can’t remember what this looked like but I did it)

 

This badge is the most special badge I have ever received and I will enjoy wearing it.

 

Scratch – Homework Inventions; The Book Reader

This is what I created for my homework.

The homework task was to create an invention that would help with school life. The Book Reader would be helpful because it could read to the class while teachers did something else. It would be made of plastic and rechargeable with some solar panels as well.

Press the on and off buttons and the other buttons.
