Hello Everyone

 

image001

 

 

What is your favourite colour?

 

This week Bill and Bob have been playing with their friends and asking them questions from a quiz that they found in a comic.

 

The quiz said that the colours that you like say something about your personality.

 

lf you want to do the quiz too, think of your favourite three colours and put them into order of preference.

 

Here are the results:

 

lf your favourite colour is…

 

Red

 

You are energetic and ambitious. You make a good leader. You may have a tendency to be impulsive. (That means doing things before you have thought them through properly.)

 

Violet

 

You are sometimes calm and sometimes impulsive. You like writing stories as you have a good imagination.

 

Yellow

 

You are positive and optimistic. (That means you look on the brighter side of life and are always thinking good things about the future.)

You are ambitious (you want to achieve a lot) and hardworking.

 

Blue

 

You are loyal, sensitive, calm and contented. You are quite a creative person.

 

Green

 

You are persistent and firm. (Persistent means that you don’t give up easily.) You don’t like change much but you do like to have lots of toys and you like to do well at school.

 

Orange

 

You love luxury and enjoying yourself having a fun time. You are warm and friendly and tend to be optimistic. You are good-natured and love animals and trees.

 

Purple

 

You are highly individual. You are witty and sensitive to your surroundings. You are sometimes mysterious, but you are intelligent and are a good friend to people.

 

Pink

 

You are artistic and creative. You are gentle, affectionate and have a generous nature.

 

Black

 

You are sometimes rebellious and sometimes conventional. (Rebellious means wanting to be different and conventional means doing everything in a traditional way.) You are very methodical. (That means you pay attention to small details and do everything in a sensible way, step by step.) You are serious about things, but don’t get over-emotional about situations.

 

Brown

 

You are dependable and take things seriously. You don’t like taking big risks. You are honest and down-to-earth and you like your home comforts.

 

So what do you think? Can you see your personality here?

 

A world-wide quiz was conducted to find out what the most popular favourite colour is. Can you guess what it was?

Bill and Bob have been thinking up some more questions for their team for their class Friday afternoon quiz at the Rocky Bay Primary School. It is their holiday homework.

Yes, they have another quiz time coming up as soon as they go back to school and this time the theme is colours.

The teams are getting more and more competitive every time they have a quiz but Miss Pringle is very pleased at how seriously they are taking them.

And she is sure that the children’s general knowledge is improving.

Everyone loves being a quiz master!

Luckily, Bill and Bob usually get on very well together and really don’t fight much.

They tend to start arguing when they are either hot or hungry.

The other day they had a bit if a scrap and accidently tore Emily’s colouring pencil box.

She was quite upset and so Auntie Alice made her a lovely pencil pocket to keep her pencils in instead.

Auntie Alice said that if they do anything like that again they won’t be getting any home-made ice cream for quite a while.

Bill and Bob apologized and everyone is friends again now. smile1 (2)

The cardboard boxes that colouring pencils come in do get torn sometimes through lots of wear so you may like to make a pencil pocket for your pencils too.

 

NEWSDESK MINIMAKE

A COLOURING PENCIL POCKET

 
Cut a piece of felt 22cm by 10cm and another 18cm by 10cm

(That is about 9 inches by 4 inches and 7 inches by 4 inches)

 

*Of course you can make it bigger or smaller

 

  1. Sew snap fastenings under the flap (the top of the longer piece of felt) and put little buttons on the top to cover the threads at the back of the fasteners.
  2. Sew the other half of the snap fasteners to the front cover (the shorter piece of felt) to match up when the flap closes.
  3. Select 4 buttons that you would like to use as flower centres and draw around them to create circles on a piece of paper – then draw petals around the each circle.
  4. When you are happy with your paper flower patterns cut them out and use them to cut out felt flowers.
  5. Anchor the felt flowers onto the front of your case.
  6. Sew the button centres on the top.
  7. Embroider stalks using chain stitch or running stitch or back stitch.
  8. Embroider leaves using lazy daisy stitch.
  9. Using small over-sew stitches and sewing thread sew up the side and bottom seams with wrong sides together.

 *Make sure that there are no loops of thread inside the case for pencils to catch on after you have finished your sewing.

This is how to make a colour spinner.

 

Take three discs of cardboard. Colour in each one like a pie chart.

 

  1. Red one half and blue the other
  2. One third yellow, one green and one purple
  3. Red, orange, yellow, green blue, indigo and violet

 

Push a short pencil or piece of cane through the middle.

 

Spin the disc and see what happens!
