A special letter...
KS4.1 have been imagining what it would be like to be shipwrecked on an island, and have been doing lots of fun activities to develop our reading, writing and speaking and listening skills. Today, we have been scavenging for materials to build a shelter. Here is some of our work so far, including our fabulous shelter!
This was written by one of our pupils, it tells us about Eid and his experince of it!
On Friday 15th June some pupils from Newman School celebrate Eid. Eid is a very special time for Muslims. It is the end of Ramadan when we fast. In the morning I woke up at 3am and ate some food. When we were awake again later on all my family got ready in their new clothes to go to Mosque.
Once we had been to pray we went home and opened our presents which everyone was excited about. My favourite present was my new tablet. When we finished opening the presents we partied with my family. My mum and aunty did lots of delicious food, we had cakes, rice and curry and we had a piñata that was good fun and had lots of sweets inside.
Ash The Corn Snake
Ash is a corn snake, he had his first birthday on the 5th of November, his morph is an Anerythristic morph (Anery). He will grow 4-6 feet in length but because Ash is a male he won’t grow as big as a female corn snake because females grow bigger. He has light grey and brown scales with a really pretty pattern on his head. A corn snake’s lifespan is 6-8 years old in the wild but in homes and with good care Ash could live upto 10-14 years. Corn snakes are quite calm and don’t mind being handled, Ash likes to come out and slither around, but it depends on each snake’s personality. It didn’t take long for Ash to get used to being handled by me, he likes it and Ash is really friendly. He is a constrictor which means he can wrap himself around things and squeeze instead of him having venom. Ash sheds his skin around every month and I cannot handle him during this time because Ash would it find it uncomfortable.
Corn snakes come from North America and are a species of a rat snake. Ash is nocturnal ,he isn’t very active and sleeps in the day and he is awake more at night. They like to live in woodlands or overgrown fields and places where they can hide. If you have a pet corn snake you have to try and set up their vivarium so it’s like living in the wild for example, Ash has a branch he can slither on, he has some hides and he has a heat pad that is set between 24°c and 30°c.
What they drink:
Things they can eat:
Mouse frozen/live (Ash eats frozen and rats)
Chicks but only when the snake is over 2 years old.
