Elder class wrote stories based on a picture. They really used their imaginations…


If you have read a good book during the lockdown, send me a book review so I can share it with the rest of the class. I recently read ‘The Nowhere Emporium’ and thought it was a fabulous book! It is a fantasy novel with brilliant flashbacks.  I also read ‘The Middle of Nowhere’, which I enjoyed. It is set in the Australian outback and had some great twists and turns. The Tiger Rising is an American children’s novel which follows the story of a boy who finds a caged tiger in a woodland near his home. ‘The Everything Machine’ is a contemporary novel about a family of children who wrongly receive an incredibly powerful 3D printer. Their exploits will make you laugh and gasp! I am currently reading ‘Loser’ by Jerry Spinelli, which is making me laugh while simultaneously tugging on my heartstrings.

Aneira made the ration chocolate cake for her VE day celebrations.
