A Brief Desciption Of The Story: Amanda wakes up in the morning. Amanda says it is a ordinary morning, but it’s really not, she does so many weird things.
What Did You Like About The Book: I like it ,because It’s called Just Another Ordinary Day, but it really isn’t just another ordinary day. It’s really a weird day.
I thought the book is very funny, weird and good. I think the colours are great and the writer has a great imagination. I thought it was weird,because her school is a castle. Her science teacher is a bug, but a huge one. Instead of packed lunches they get cakes and hamburgers. Theirlibrary studies teacher looks like a boy and it’s a girl and in library studies they made a ship and an ocean out of books. I also think it’s weird,because she says her cat is a cat, but it’s a lion, so I gave it a10/10 overall.
In Science we have been busy learning how to classify animals. We started off completing an activity where we had to classify lots of pictures of animals into groups. The first two groups we needed to sort our animals into were vertebrates and invertebrates. Vertebrates are animals with backbones and Invertebrates are animals without backbones. We then needed to sort our vertebrates group into a further five groups. A description of these five groups can be found below.
Birds have a back bone, they have feathers. They lay eggs in a nest. The eggs have a hard shell. They have a steady body temperature. Examples: Eagle, Hawk and Falcon.

Fish have a backbone, fins and scales. They lay eggs in water and use gills to get oxygen from the water. They do not have a steady temperature. Examples of fish: Stingray, Puffer Fish and a Shark.

Amphibians have a backbone. They lay eggs in water. During their life cycle they change from a stage when they live entirely in water to a stage when they can live in water and on the land. They do not have a steady body temperature.
Examples: Frog , Toad, and Salamander.
