My Holiday to California

My adventures in California

At the end of May we went to California in America. We stayed in the Hotel Irvine for four days which was a brillant hotel and then we stayed at our Grandpa's house for a week which was also really cool. Grandpa has a cool house and he also has the Disney Channel which we loved!

The first couple of days, we went to Del Taco. This is a Mexican restaurant like you've never seen in England before. It has tacos, quesadillas (the soft ones) and it also has burritos. Del Taco was my favourite place to eat because it had delicious Mexican food. We also went to Rubios (king of the fish taco) which is another Mexican restaurant. My sister BooJam went to a sandwich place called "Which Wich" and she loved the food there.

We went to Knottsberry Farm and I went on the Jaguar rollercoaster ride. My sister couldn't go on because she was too small. The queuing was very scary because it was in an egyptian tomb, but the ride was really good. One of the rides was really cool. It was a ride where you got to lay down and fly in Camp Snoopy. I loved it and so did my sister too. We also went on a ride where we bounced up and down and that was so much fun.

We went to Hollywood to look around. Our tour guide was Grandpa.  We saw the Hollywood Sign, Manns Chinese Theatre, the handprints in the concrete on the floor and the Hollywood walk of Fame which had lots of stars on the floor. I saw the handprints of Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson. They are my favourite characters from Harry Potter.

Los Angeles has lots of swimming pools. We went in a swimming pool with diving boards and had lots of fun swimming around and diving.

We went to Newport Beach and I was swimming in the sea and there was this really big wave and I had to cling onto the sand as the wave washed over me. It really hurt but it was also cool at the same time. We also bought necklaces for each other.

We went whale watching with Captain Dave's Whale Watching and we saw a Fin Whale and Bottlenose Dolphins and we also saw some baby dolphins. We also saw grey dolphins as we came into the harbour and the seals too. They were really stinky!

I loved California and I can't wait to go back again!

My Build a Bear - Princess Sugar

In February I went to Build a Bear workshop in Milton Keynes for my birthday and I made a Build a Bear.

The bear was flat when you picked it but then you had a special machine which stuffed them. You can pick a song recording for them to play and so I chose "Let it Go" from my favourite film "Frozen".

You had to choose clothes for them. I chose some pyjamas for her, a top and skirt outfit, and a beautiful sleeping beauty dress. The dress had a crown.

I called my bear Princess Sugar. She is pink with pink and white hearts and I love her. My sister got one too called Elsa.

We also got hair brushes and special bags for our bears, and a rucksack to carry her in.

I love my build a bear and take her almost everywhere!

She's so cuddly and I take her to bed with me. Above is a picture of her.

Heat Holder Tight and Socks

A nice company sent me and my sister some Heat Holder tights to review. They also sent my Mummy some fluffy socks too.

Mummy says that "Heat Holders are the ultimate thermal brand as their average tog rating for thermal wear is 2.34 tog". That's very warm.

Our tights were black and very stretchy, I like that they are black as we can wear them with lots of things. On the Heat Holders website, they also sell lots of different colours. I liked the pink socks they had too.

When I tried my tights on, I could instantly feel inside that they were very warm and comfy. It's still very cold, and so we wore them to school one day and I felt much warmer running around the playground than I do in my normal tights. I also wore them with a skirt and top when we went for a walk to the woods and they kept my feet and legs very warm in my welly boots.

I would recommend these to my friends and to other children. If I saw them in a shop I would ask Mummy to buy them for me because they are amazing at keeping you warm in the winter and they look cool too.

Mummy said that the heat holder socks kept her feet lovely and warm too, and really helped at night time when she had cold feet in bed and when she was working in her office in the day. She has been wearing them a lot. She said that they keep her feet seven times warmer than the average cotton sock!

There are other products in the Heat Holder range for children like socks, slipper socks and girls tights. As it is quite a shivery start to Spring, we have been enjoying wearing our Heat Holder tights a lot!

Maths - Bus Stop Division

This is the bus stop method of division:

It is easy if you know how to do division.
