Hello I’m called Sophia, I am 12 years old and enjoy reading, sewing, crafting, and playing board games. I live in south Devon with my Mum, Dad, and my two brothers Isaac and Eli. We often go out exploring on Dartmoor . Me, Isaac, and Eli are home educated which means we are taught at home by our mum. We do lots of stuff such as home ed groups, forest school , day trips to places like the Eden Project , science experiments, Dance classes and I have just started a course with Lamda (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art)
I have started this blog to write about things I’m interested in like Extinction Rebellion , books, music, movies, sewing and board games (and basically anything else!!!!).
Hi guys, sorry I haven’t had time to write until lately. But I am here today, and cause it is getting up to Christmas I thought I would research where Christmas trees came from.
So I’m not gonna do the complete history cause that will take forever, so I am mainly gonna focus on Christmas Trees in England.
Christmas trees were originally from Germany. In the 1790s Queen Charlotte bought them over, she was the wife of King George the third, and was born in Germany.
Christmas trees back then were not what you expect a Christmas tree to be nowadays. They would have been a lot smaller and were potted trees that would be put on a table, but still decorated with lights and ornaments.
Many people think that Prince Albert (The husband of Queen Victoria and also German) introduced Christmas trees, this is actually false information. Charlotte introduced them but in the 1840s Albert and Victoria made them incredibly popular. Because they were very popular with the people after they had got a Christmas tree everyone wanted one!
Hey guys guess what? Today is my 1 year anniversary so to celebrate I am going to do a Q and A please send me questions and I will answer them in my next blog as long as they aren’t about personal details like where I live and stuff.
Hi Guys! Today I’m going to tell you about my Easter! Let’s start then!
When I came down in the morning to see my chocolate, on the table I didn’t have 1 egg, I didn’t have 2 eggs, but I had 3 eggs!
So much CHOCOLATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Then I ate some. a bit later in the morning we went to a woods and me, Mum, and my Brothers went for a walk while Dad hid us 11 little small eggs this is what they looked like:
When we got back we had a peice of toast for lunch/snack. Then Grandma and Grandad arrived for a outside BBQ (It is allowed because they didn’t come in the house we had it in the garden) we had burgers, chipolatas, potato salad, halloumi, salad, and corn on the cob. Then for pudding we had mississippi mud pie. After all that I felt sick, so I just read for the rest of day till the evening then watched a show called Chuck with Mum and Dad then went to bed.
Well that’s all from me! I hope you enjoyed reading this post and had a great Easter! Tell me about your Easter and how much Chocolate you got in the comments!
Hi guys, during lockdown I decided to do a world project, by myself in my own time! What I’m doing today is sharing the first part of it because I thought you guys might be interested! Here it goes…today I will be sharing the intro and Colonization page!
In this project some of the things I will be talking about will be:
Some diffrent countries including:
What is Colonization? Colonization is were a more powerful country comes to a weaker country & says I own this place & then makes the Indigenous people follow their rules, religion, & tradition & speak their language & sometimes when a Indigenous child goes to school they have to change their name to a christian name!
Luckliy this doesn’t happen much any more. But some countries are still colonized!
Hi guys. Today I am doing something new, I’ve done book reviews before, but in this I will talk about the chapter. Sorry I didn’t explain that very well, explaining things is NOT my strong point. If you didn’t get that sorry, but now I’m just going to get into it and hopefully you’ll get it. Oh 1 last thing I suggest you read/listen the first chapter of Kat Wolfe Investigates before reading this post.
The first book I’ll be doing is Kat Wolfe Investigates by Lauren St John. Today I’ll be talking about chapter 1
This is probably 1 of the scariest chapters of this book. Basically what happens is her Mum texts saying she’ll be back soon and Naska’s (the student who lives with them) sister was in A & E so Naska was with her and then a burglar come and Kat throws a tennis ball which hits a vase which send a book flying knocks the burglar out and the Kat’s mum gets home. I quite like the tension and spookiness of this chapter
My two fave parts of this chapter are “‘You want me to give away The Tiger who came to Tea. What kind of monster are you? That’s the first book you ever read to me’ Her Mum’s face lit up. ‘You remember! OK, maybe not that one, but how about recycling some of the mystery novels you’ve read a dozen times? You’ve dropped at least half of them in the bath.'” and the second part is “‘But it didn’t’ Kat grinned. Now that her mum was home and the police were rushing to the rescue, she felt a lot better. ‘Long story short,I was saved by Thelma’s vase, a chewed tennis ball and The Merck Veterinary Manual.”
Well that’s all from me. Let me know in the comments what your fave part from Kat Wolfe Investigates chapter 1 is.
