Mrs Wade has entered Ella Bain’s story into the Radio 2 500 words competition. I hope when you have read this you will understand why. A writer in the making! The Beach Dog Luke walked across the glimmering water. Tears falling with a splash! The sea eating them as they had eaten something else before. He walked off leaving the beach where he once felt at home, now it was the saddest place in the world. “Luke come on, you need to stay at home when the sun goes down!” yelled his mum with... 

This term our class reader is The Iron Man and already we have had some fun with our new book. We have been into the woods and acted out Chapter 2 and then written a newspaper report about how the villagers trapped the Iron man and buried him in an enormous hole. Please come and read our reports – they are up in the classroom. We have been practising our handwriting on a picture of the Iron Man – again these are up to celebrate how our handwriting has improved this year. Today we wrote...

With only a couple of days notice for our class assembly we were delighted to see so many parents in the Rendall Room on Tuesday morning. Quickly the class changed into their Egyptian costumes and they clearly spoke their lines to Years 5 and 7 alongside their families. Mrs Wade would like to thank Mrs Vaughan for getting the costumes out of her loft for the weekend and also Mrs Thomas for helping to wrap Jonathan in his ‘mummies’ costume. She couldn’t have done it without them!...

The latest Big Write in Year 2 was called My Magic Finger, and with the usual parental  input the night before, together with mood lighting and background Mozart music, the results were a wonderfully mixed bag! Sebbie wrote:  I went to the park with Dad and Lucas and Ernie.  Lucas was rude.  I put my magic finger on  Lucas and then he turned into a dog.  Just like Ernie. Lucas was not rude again. Neve wrote:  When I was born something amazing happened to me.  I had a magic finger.  I can...

Charlie Blades so enjoyed the visit from the Herstmonceaux Observatory, that he went home and wrote a beautiful poem about his experience. Look Up The night time sky is poisoned with fire, Life to death to sorrow to hate is its life. It’s never ceasing always moving on. Never waiting. Never. Never stop. Or left behind. You will be alone despised. So don’t slow up don’t don’t! Charles Isaac Gammage Blades. Year 6

Years 3 and 4 had a fantastic talk by Shoo Rayner in the newly decorated theatre. He talked about his latest collection of books which he is launching in time for the Olympic Games and drew the main character from his set of books based on the boy, Axel Storm. He also read an extract from his book Death Valley which the children throughly enjoyed. As soon as the floor was open for discussion he was bombarded with questions about his many characters, writing, illustrating and his life in general....
