Last week, Mrs Graham visited our school
to talk to us about inventions. When she
was a girl, she wanted to be an inventor
herself, but she decided to study history.
She likes reading about inventions that
we use every day. She talked about
two inventors from the USA: Josephine
Cochrane and Percy Spencer.
Josephine Cochrane was born in
1839. She was a very rich woman who
liked having parties, but didnt like
washing the dishes. Her servants did
this for her, but she wasnt very happy
because sometimes they broke the plates.
She wanted a machine to wash her plates
quickly and without breaking them. She
invented the first dishwasher in 1886. In

the beginning, it was used in hotels and


restaurants, then in peoples houses.
Percy Spencer was a scientist who
worked with radars in the 1940s. One
day he walked past a radar machine and
a chocolate bar in his pocket melted.
Percy noticed this and went to get some
popcorn seeds. He put the seeds in
front of the machine and they started
popping! Thats how he invented the
microwave. Percy didnt finish school, but
he learned chemistry, physics and maths
by himself. Isnt he amazing?
There are many important inventors
who invented things by accident, said
Mrs Graham. But like Percy, they were
all very observant and worked very hard.

A FUN INVENTION!
Smartphones are a great invention. There are lots of applications you can
have for less than 5. Here are some fun apps for children or adults.
A Curious Georges Town (2.49)

B On this day (0.99)

Children (4 years old and older) organise the


vegetables in the market, learn the alphabet
in the library and help recycle in the park.
They win coins (not real ones!) which they
can save or use to build their town and buy
farm animals (and dinosaurs).

Choose any day of the year and get


information on events that happened in
the past on that day. For example, what
happened on 7th April? Well, Keith Kellogg
created the cereal Corn Flakes in 1860, and
the famous artist El Greco died in 1614. This
app is great for teenagers and adults.

C The Shape Monster (free)


This game is for children aged two and up,
and it helps them to learn the shapes. The
Shape Monster is a friendly but hungry
monster. He tells the children what shape he
wants to eat and they give it to him. There
are two levels for different ages.

D Waze (free)
This app is used by drivers who prefer to have
satnav technology on their phone. They can
build their own maps, get information on
the traffic and directions as they drive.
When there are problems, they can send
this information to other drivers who have
the app.

2 This app helps users learn the value of money.

3 This app is only for adult users.

4 You can learn about discoveries and inventions with this app.

5 Its the cheapest app for children.

CAPTAIN JAMES COOK


Captain James Cook was a famous explorer.
He was born in 1728 in England and lived on
a farm until he was about 18. He loved the
sea and decided to work on a ship. He was
very good at making maps and as a captain
he introduced important changes for his
sailors health and safety. For example, he
asked them to wash every day and eat lots of
fresh fruit.
He left for his first journey on August 26,
1768 and didnt return until July 1771.
Cook travelled around the South Pacific
and created maps of the islands. He didnt
discover Australia or New Zealand, but he
was the first to see the east coast of Australia
and the first to sail around and map the
islands of New Zealand.

He liked the kangaroos and other animals in


Australia. The scientists who travelled with
Captain Cook collected and recorded many
plants and animals.
On this first expedition, Captain Cook first
visited Tahiti. The natives on this island were
very nice and some of Cooks men didnt
want to leave. The Maoris, the natives in New
Zealand, werent so friendly and there was
a fight between them and Cooks men. They
also had tattoos on their faces and some of
Cooks sailors wanted to have them on their
arms. They started a tradition that continues
today. In his third and last expedition,
Captain Cook visited the Hawaiian Islands.
Unfortunately, there was a fight with the
natives and Cook was killed there.
