zombie and ghost

Somebody is on my bed! when i turned around i saw a ghost and a zombie.when I saw them i was shocked and I was about to scream but I did not screamed.When I moved my hand my cup fell on the floor they were about wake up then I went downstairs to call my mother the ghost and the zombie woke up.When I went upstairs they were fighting very badly then they saw me and stopped fighting.Then I went to my friend’s house their was also a zombie and a ghost.I ran to many houses so that they can help me but there were only zombies and ghosts.Then there was only one house left which I think could help me and then I went inside the house I found my brother sisters and my parents.I was pleased to see them without any injuries.Then I saw a man he took me to his science lab we both made a special gun  which makes zombies and ghosts make in a normal human.Then we shot every single of them.Then we saw that they were turning into normal people.then me and that man had a party in which the zombies and ghosts who we turned into normal people came.We  all had loads of fun enjoying the party together and the man who helped me to make that gun we were then best friends.

Food miles

Sorry I’ve posted this a bit late, we’ve had a few technical problems with our blogs which has prevented me from posting.

We had a great lesson yesterday researching food miles and contacting all sorts of people via email and twitter. We have now started to get some responses back. Here are some websites which contain great information about food miles:

Tesco
M&S
The Co-operative – go to page 6.
Innocent drinks
Ocado
Brakes (one of the school’s food suppliers)

I’ll post any more links I find.

We had a great day at Old Trafford yesterday. We were very lucky with the weather and saw nearly three hours of cricket. We saw some very famous cricketers including the England captain, Alistair Cook, South African test batsmen Ashwell Prince and Austarlian Simon Katich. We also had the opportunity to try lots of fun activities which had been laid on by the LCCC Foundation.
