"Santa Claus is coming to town......."
Oops sorry I was just singing a Christmas song. Because I joined the Performance group. We were getting into the Christmas spirit(even though its only November).
It was really fun. We choreographed our own dance for 'Santa Claus Is Coming To Town'. I really enjoyed singing and dancing together with everyone. Also Mia and I have come up with the 'Shim Sham"(Our very own dance move). 
Today I also participated in P4C(Philosophy For Children) and our question was 'What has changed from when our ancestors were living and is it better now or then?

Thats all for today blog readers.
Until next time,

Do you ever wonder about the brain?

Do you ever wonder about the brain?

Well I know I do.
I have always wondered what side of the brain I use for different things. I love doing dance and music and I found out that for those things it is the temporal lobe and the cerebellum that I use. I have enjoyed learning about the brain and am keen to find out more and more each week. Today we were mainly learning about the parts of the brain and what we use them for.

Also today it Katie's last day with us because she is having a baby. (I really hope it is a girl).
I will really miss her and her days that she makes fun and makes everyone want to learn. Thanks for everything Katie!! 

Until next week,

Hello Blog Readers,
Today was an awesome day. We finished our CD. We called it Neon!
Paul found this really cool cd cover that you put on the cd to give it a high gloss finish.I'm glad that we are nearing at the end and getting a good result.

We also are adding the finishing touches for our presentations that we are presenting next week. Next week is the spring fling and I am dressing up in green because I am Irish. We also have to bring a taster of a dish from the country our family originated from so I am going to bake some Irish tea cake.

Here is what the CD looks like now.

Blog ya next week,

Active Inspire and CDs

Hello everyone,
I just logged into my computer because it was so slow today. It  literally took forever.
Today at Enrich we had Passion time! We completely changed the design of our CD cover on Active inspire. Anna and I made our own for starters and then combined some elements from each one to made an awesome one. 

We also had strength based extension. We have learnt so many things that helped us make our songs better and easier to make.

See ya next week,
P.S. See if you can solve this riddle.
I have streets but no pavement,
I have cities but no buildings,
I have forests but no trees,
I have rivers yet no water.

What am I?
I'll tell you the answer next week!!

Have you ever thought about making your own CD from Garageband?
I didn't either until I'd had a starter session with Nicola in Performance last year.

Now Anna and I are on the home straight with our passion project and we are nearly finished our own CD. We created the very last two songs for the album and make a appropriate list in order so that we didn't have many of the same genre or style together.

This afternoon we had art and I normally hate doing art because i'm such a perfectionist and I keep rubbing it out and starting again. But because we did Picasso portraits that are abstract so can't be right or wrong.
This is what they look like:
