The Beatles are an inspiration for old and young people. Without the Beatles, there wouldn’t be the same music today. The Beatles changed music and the history of music. The band started as “The Quarrymen” in 1956 with John Lennon, James Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Stuart Sutcliffe, Colin Hanton, Eric Griffiths, Len Garry, Rod Davis, and Chas Newby throughout the years. Richard Starkey (Ringo)was not in the band yet. The name came from their school, Quarry Bank School.
There had been another name “John and the Moondogs” but that was just another name for them. The Quarrymen changed to The Beatels, The Silver Beetles, Then the well-known Beatles. The Beatles had a chance to perform in the Grosse Freiheit club. The Grosse Freiheit club was in Hamburg, Germany. This club was wild and people were fighting in the audience, though it was a great chance to perform. But there was horrible service there. They slept behind a movie theater screen, and they would have been awoken by the sound of the movie. Their performances were so long, they would have eaten meals on stage.
Also In Hamburg, Ringo Starr met John Lennon, and that changed the Beatles forever. To Be Continued...
Super Pig Adventures Stephen H.
Part 1: the beginning
One fine day in Pigland, there lived a super hero named Super Porkey. He was the greatest (and only) non sidekick superhero in Pigland.
But he didn’t fight alone. He had sidekick named Boy Bacon. Together they worked to fight crime. Every now and then they helped the police with a shortage of donuts.
But there was a super duper bad guy named Sir Hams Alot. He wanted to be the ruler of Pigland. If it weren’t for Super Porkey and Boy Bacon he would’ve already taken over Pigland.
So, one day Super Porkey and Boy Bacon were having lunch.At Pigland you can eat everything. They HATED anything pig related. So, they had an egg salad (Sir Hams Alot’s favorite) In fact, he liked it so much he could smell it like a bloodhound. So, that's what he did. He went to the Pink restaurant. And no, he was not happy to see Super Porkey and Boy Bacon. And of course, there was a fight.A big fight.
The restaurant was destroyed. Super Porky kept throwing pork at Sir Hams Alot. Boy Bacon threw bacon. But, Sir Hams Alot did not throw ham back. He ate it. Then he ate so much that he became a big sphere. What happens next? Tune in to find out!

Lego Masterminds Sofia G.
Did you know that there is a three day event where kids throughout some cities in the United States can go and build lego creations of their own? This is called KidsFest. They use normal sized lego pieces.
You can also visit a museum with enormous characters made completely out of lego pieces of all kinds. At the museum, they have a human sized figure of the Incredible Hulk. These are located at a Lego Model Museum.
To make a three dimensional character, you have to first draw an outline of what you want to make on paper. This is on the masterminds program. Then, you have to use a three dimensional modeling program. Next, you have to use a three dimensional brick builder to have the instructions on how to make the project. If you follow these steps you can make a three dimensional character of your own.
Kids can also do this by hand. I love making things out of legos without instructions. I prefer making houses instead of characters in comparison to these Lego Masterminds.

Super Pigs Adventure: Part II War of the Restaurants Stephen H.
We left off when the pigs were just starting the war of the restaurants.
When Sir Hams Alot became a huge sphere, he absolutely destroyed the restaurant! Super Porkey and Boy Bacon had to make him regular size again. So they used a vacuum. They put it in his ear and started sucking the big gas out of him. Now Sir Hams Alot was normal but not ready to quit. He threw ham at Super Porkey and Benny Bacon, but it wasn’t enough. What Sir Hams Alot didn’t know was that Super Porkey and Benny Bacon were HUGE eaters! So they just ate and ate and ate. Soon Sir Hams Alot was out of ham. Sir Hams Alot thought it was the end of him. But then… LIGHT BULB! He made a escape using his Piggy Escape 2000 (so he called it). He got in as fast as his evil feet could go. He got into the pink escape pod and flew away. The heroes were not happy.

The Attack of the Flying Pencil Abby G.
One normal day at Wilson Elementary, Sally was writing a story, with her favorite pencil with a blue eraser on it. She was writing a story about a weird day at a school! All of the pencils were flying around and were flying to everybody’s desks. The story that Sally wrote was awesome!
Then, while writing her story, Sally's pencil and all the pencils in her desk came out and shot like a bullet to Mr. Henry's (her teacher’s), desk. Sally looked at them in shock. “THEY’RE A…...AL…...ALIVE” Sally yelled. All Sally thought was that she was just imaging her story, very well, but it was actually real! After realizing it was real life, she told Johnny, was a boy who sat in back of her. Just like Sally, Johnny sat at his desk in shock. Johnny started to scream. Right as Mr. Henry got back to the classroom the orange pencil in Johnny's hand went dancing in the air! When Mr. Henry came back to the classroom, he looked mortified. That was because all the pencils on his desk were shooting to the back of the classroom! Sally said to Johnny “It looks like they have f...fa…..FACES!” Sally almost screamed her lungs out until Johnny screamed for her! Then Gina, the girl that sits in the back yelled “They’re coming for me!” So many screams came out of her classmates mouths, but Sally saw a pencil coming at Johnny’s face, so she leaped out of her seat and slapped the pencil to the ground! Johnny thanked Sally as soon as he could. Sally was happy that she saved Johnny, but also frightened that the pencils were now flying towards her! Sally thought the pencils were possessed, but maybe it was just a really weird day. The whole class went out the door to wait for the pencils to stop flying around. Mr.Henry’s class had a pretty good day, well... except for the flying pencils! After waiting for what seemed forever, it was time for lunch. Sally brought a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and Johnny brought cheese and crackers. The two students sat together. The first couple of minutes in the lunchroom were normal, but then it turned into a disaster! All of the lunch trays in the kids hands had flop around to the ground! Sally jumped into action, while everybody else huddled in the back corner. Sally grabbed the garbage can and threw the trays into the garbage. When all the trays were thrown in the garbage, everybody cheered for Sally. Sally felt like a superstar! When all the kids finished their lunch, they went outside. Outside everything went smoothly, but everybody wanted to play with Sally. After everybody got tired of asking Sally to play with them, Sally played hopscotch with Johnny. Every time Sally would win, Johnny would yell at her,”You had to have cheated.” Sally would just say”I think that it is just that I’m a pro at hopstache!” Everything went well the rest of the day. Well of course not the rest of the year! TO BE CONTINUED……
Heavy Metal Abby Griggs
I think that Heavy Metal is an awesome type of music. There are many different ways of playing Heavy Metal. It always depends on the instruments you have. Some instruments needed to play are drums, bass and electric guitar.
There are also many different bands. Some are called HaleStorm, M.O.D, Metallic and there are some many more. So, if you’re interested in this kind of music, you will learn a lot more if you keep reading.
First I’m going to talk about how Heavy Metal is made. Heavy Metal is a type of harsh-sounding amplified rock music with a hard beat. Also, Heavy Metal got its name from a song called “Born to Be Wild” in the late 1960. Heavy Metal has an interesting past!
Now to talk about some Heavy Metal bands. I’lll mention some of my favorites to be exact. First I'll talk about Halestorm! Halestorm has many different genres of music such as hard rock, alternative metal, post grunge and of course heavy medal. The instruments Halestorm uses are guitars, drums, a bass and a keyboard. They also have a lead singer whose name is Lizzy Hale. Some popular song by her are “Love Bites”, “Freak LIke Me” and “Mz. Hyde”. Halestorm is an awesome Heavy Metal band.
Another band is M.O.D. M.O.D stands for Method Of Destruction. Some other genres M.O.D does is crossover thrash and thrash metal. This band has been around for over 30 years now. M.O.D uses drums, a bass guitar, a regular guitar and M.O.D has a lead singer named Billy Milano. Some popular songs by M.O.D are “I Don’t Feed the Bears”, “Let Me Out”, and “Man of your Dreams”. M.O.D has very loud songs.
So, if these bands sound interesting to you, then maybe you should listen to Heavy Metal. There are also other bands that sing Heavy Metal.
I think that Heavy Metal is the best genre of music ever!
Harry Potter is a unique wizard in the Wizarding World. He is also the boy who lived when no one expected him to. He got this name when Lord Voldemort tried to put a curse on him but it back fired on to Voldemort.
Harry was shipped to his Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon because his Mom and Dad (Lily and James Potter) were killed by Lord Voldemort. He was treated unfairly by his aunt and uncle. He was eventually found by Hagrid, a giant who told him he was a wizard.
Harry Potter went to Diagon Alley to find the supplies to be a wizard. He then went on the Hogwarts Express to go to Hogwarts a school of witchcraft and wizardry. On the train he met Ron Weasly and Hermione Granger. They were all best friends.
When they got to Hogwarts they were sorted into four houses Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Slytherin or Ravenclaw. Ron was sorted into Gryffindor just like his many brothers. Hermione was sorted in Gryffindor as well as Ron. But Harry took a while to get sorted. He begged the sorting hat not to put him Slytherin. The sorting hat then put him in Gryffindor just like Ron and Hermione.They were then shown where their beds were by Ron’s older brother Percey.
Harry attends the Defense Against the Dark Arts Class. He had a very strange teacher, Professor Quirrell. What is the mystery with him?I will have to leave you there. I am excited to read more. You should read it too!
