Ramsey Brook Samples- by Gage
This week in Science, we went outside and took samples from the Ramsey Brook. When I was looking in the Ramsey Brook I saw crayfish, and other small organisms. Because of this, we found out that the brook is somewhat healthy. It was fun for me, because we tested the water’s temperature, and we scooped up the small organisms out of the water with a cup. Then, we poured them on a square dish, and counted them. We counted them, because we wanted to know how many invertebrates there are in our brook.
Also this week, we calculated the percentage of impervious land to pervious land. Impervious means that water can’t go through it. Pervious means that water can easily go through it. For example, concrete is impervious, and soil or grass is pervious. We found out that the land around Brookside School was 46%, impervious. This means that the quality of our water in Ramsey Brook is somewhat degraded. We will continue to study our data and take more samples.
Review of Goosebumps Movie- Christian
About a week ago, I saw the Goosebumps movie. I thought it was good. The cast includes, Jack Black as R. L. Stine, Odeya Rush as Hannah, Dylan Minnette as Zach, and Ryan Lee as Champ. The movie is about the award winning books Goosebumps and how the Goosebumps books are unlocked and the monster run wild. I recommend this movie for whoever wants to be scared but also wants a laugh.
The Peanuts Movie Review- Michael
The Peanuts Movie Review by Ben
On Friday, November 6, 2015 Jack and I went to see the Peanut’s Movie at Paramus Movie Theater. I thought the movie was very funny. A funny part of the movie was when Snoopy went to school and I said, “Dogs don’t go school.” The movie started at 10:30 in the morning. The movie is about Charlie Brown becoming a winner. I recommend this movie because it is a great movie for kids.
Book Clubs and Partnerships-by John
This week in language arts we are starting to make partnerships for reading. The book I am reading is a book called Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. He is a three time Newbery Honor author. The book is about a young boy who is on his way to see his dad, but all of a sudden the plane crashes. The young boy, Brian Robeson, is confused as to where he is and he does not know what he is doing in this strange place. I think that Brain will try to find his way out of this mess and find his dad. I think Brian is going to find his dad. I think Brian is a strong and confident character.

Medieval Times-by Jack
This week in History we started studying about Medieval Europe. We learned about an early political system called feudalism. The king is on top and owns all the land. He divides it up and gives it to the lords who he like. Each lord has to provide knights to the king. The knights protect all the people in the kingdom. The land is worked by people called serfs. Serfs are bound to the land. This means they can never leave.
