Encarta in Mr.Lupton's Room

I went on Encarta Encyclopaedia on the computer in school. I looked up Offaly. It was very interesting. It gave me the history about Loch Boora and about the Vikings. It also gave me information about the different towns in Offaly. It told me the number of people in Birr, Clara, Tullamore and Edenderry. I also looked up Enid Blyton. It told me that she was a teacher and now she is one of the best liked childrens' writers. When I looked up Enid Blyton I had to look up Roald Dahl. He was from Norway. His sister died when he was young and soon after his father died. He went to St. Peters n.s. Boarding School. When he was finished at St. Peters he went to Repton Boarding School. Some of his best stories are Charly and the Chocolate Factotry and Boy. I thought Encarta was very interesting.

I enjoy being on Encarta.There is alot to discover. There are games such as Mind Maze. The games are good because you are playing the same time as you are using your mind. It is very interesting . If you type in an animal it will give you an article on that animal and will also give you a picture of it. One time I looked up a cheetah and it even gave the movements , let alone the picture and article . It has a dictionary and treasures. The dictionary has every word in it from a to z . It has music in it as well.There is a lot of music in it. But there are only bits and pieces of the songs . Sometimes we play musical statues. We have alot of fun when we play .

Everyone in our class has seen the games and music being played. They liked it alot. I think every one enjoys it. Everyone in America enjoys it as well. We have our own Encarta and when we get our computer running we will use Encarta even more.I enjoy Encarta alot and so does my family. Encarta is very interesting.

You get videos with animals moving & making noise .&you just get the sound on other things & a picture with no sound on other things and a picture moving on other things.
