Mystery Athlete…?

Posted by eastwoldblog on January 17, 2011

I am adding this post as one of those ‘What can you find out about…” questions.

Our Class Assembly is going to be on the topic of  “Determination” and I think that this athlete goes along way towards personifying that.

I am quite sure that you can see why I think that.

My question to you is this…

Who is this Mystery Athlete?

What can you find out about him?


Post your answers as comments – Stars WILL be awarded for good answers!

Mr W.

I offer you this clue and this clue only!

He is South African.

Heraldry – What would your ‘Coat of Arms’ say about you?

Posted by eastwoldblog on September 6, 2010

COMPARTMENT         MOTTO              SCROLL

SUPPORTERS: Men, fabulous monsters, animals etc. supporting the shield. Granted only in certain circumstances.

WREATH OR TORSE: A circlet of twisted ribbon of the colours thought to have been used originally to hide the join of the crest to the helm.

SHIELD: Shape of the shield has no significance, but the devices and charges on it are governed by strict rules.

MANTLING: Originally cloth draped over the back of the helm as protection from the sun: usually illustrated slashed and draped around the helm and shield. Much artistic license is allowed.


Heraldry is, in its basic form, simply a means of identification. From simple beginnings of a device painted on a shield for easy identification from a distance in battle, heraldry has developed into a beautiful art from with many rules that must be strictly observed. For individuals it is a family emblem and for impersonal organisations a symbol of corporate identity. Heraldry is all around us, from a simple football shirt to complicated devices with quarterings and supporters representing the symbols of state. Even a company logo is a form of heraldry.

Information and Images from: www.sol.co.uk – Many Thanks.


As an activity to reflect on the characteristics of our own personality – Children in Class 4 have designed a Coat of Arms for themselves.

(Hopefully some examples will follow soon!)

We talked about the Rules of Heraldry, the types of creatures/symbols and patterns used on shields and Coats of Arms.

One of the activities we tried was to describe ourselves in 3 words.

Record some of your ideas below…

General Election 2010

Posted by eastwoldblog on May 6, 2010

As today is Thursday 6th May 2010, millions of people over 18 years of age, across Great Britain and Northern Ireland will be going to Polling Stations to cast their votes for who they believe should lead our country from tomorrow.

This election is widely believed to be the closest for a long time with not only the Labour Party and Conservative Party running at the front, but the Liberal Democrats are challenging too. Tomorrow, perhaps Labour will still be in power or perhaps it will be a new party, or even a ‘Hung Parliament’, where no single party has a great enough majority to lead alone.

It is sure to be an interesting night!


To recognise this here are a couple of online activities, that you might like to try.

Virtual Tour of the Houses of Parliament: Parliament Online – Tour

If you could vote. who should you vote for?

Test your opinions here: Vote Match

What Party does www.votematch.org.uk say that you should vote for?
