Yesterday, mad science visited our school. For our session, we was taught by Physics, who demonstrated more information about rocks including seeing a model volcano erupting and making our own rock called chalk.

The Stone Age was a time thousands of years ago, when early humans lived in caves and jungles.Life was simple, and there were only two main things to do.To protect themselves from the wild animals and to gather food.

For both purposes, people made tools from stone.The oldest stone tool that we have as an evidence is almost 3.4 million years old.It was found in Lower Awash Valley in Ethiopia.The Stone Age ended somewhere in between 6000 BC to 2500 BC.Around that time stone tools were replaced for copper tools.Stones were also used to make fire. And since in those times humans used stone for almost everything they did, we call it The stone age.

In the early years of the Stone Age, humans used stones besides wood and bone tools for chopping tasks (these were the choppers). Later, they learnt to develop a special kind of sharp stone called flint which was used to cut and chip things quickly.As the humans became smarter they started to make even more complex tools than before. The flints were probably used as barbs on arrows, spears and other composite tools.

The Stone Age people just ate animals and plants.They wrapped themselves in animal fur and sat around fire to keep warm. Stone Age people could communicate with written symbols. All their words and ideas were expressed in symbols. They were talented artists.

I was happy:teeth shining;mouth open;eyes wide open.

I was sad:tears falling;mouth frowning;eyes squinting.

The Romans came to Britain nearly 2000 years ago and changed our country.Even today evidence of the Romans being here, can be seen in the ruins of Roman buildings, forts, roads, and baths can be found all over Britain.The Romans lived in Rome a city in the centre of the country of Italy. The Romans invaded other countries too. The Roman Empire covered much of Europe, north Africa, and the Middle East.One day, some years before Jesus was born the Romans came to Britain.

Roman numbers

The Roman Numeral, as far as we know, was the only written numbering system used in Ancient Rome and Europe until about 900 AD, when the Arabic Numbering System, which was originated by the Hindu’s, came into use. (The Arabic Numbers are the ones we use today 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9).

Roman Numerals do not have a zero (0) and have 7 digits (I, V, X, L, C, M)

Arabic numbers, we have ten digits (from 0-9) and we can make as big a number as we want with these.

One fine morning  in a small woods, there was a small, stone sofa randomly placed in the middle of the woods. Amber leaves flew onto the sofa and landed on the large cushions that you sat upon. Nevertheless wind started to blow, while some of the tassels started to become cryptic and grey.

Random bushes started to grow behind the stone sofa, and started spreading everywhere! The sofa slowly  started to turn a… pinkish kind of colour. Suddenly a stone creature appeared on top of the sofa, but it was stone too therefore it won’t be able to move.

What will happen to the sofa?

Friday 27th February 

Out in the green and fresh woods, there was a black and ginger sofa. It just stood there for 200 years but it not ruined or scratched! I was confused:eyes rolling;spooked;shaking. There was a scary, fake skunk on the mysterious but magical sofa in the fresh green woods.

Bravely,I went to the sofa and I felt like something was going to happen to me but actually I just heard a squeak and “get  off this magic sofa otherwise you will be cursed!”

So I got off the mysterious talking sofa and it murmered “THANK YOU NOW GO!” in a deep voice so I went…

If you like mysterious stories ,if you like scary stories , then you will love this story !

This story all began when a little girl was playing with her friend,then in mid -day they came across a scary , dark black sofa . Also, there was a scary dog made of pure stone .

Curiously ,the two little girls slowly went to sit down on the cryptic ,spooky chair. It creaked! When they sat down there was a rumble, a rumble like a lion just finishing its dinner .Quickly, in a split second, they fell in the the chair further and further. Did they ever get out of the woods safely ?
