A poem for VE Day

By Marwa (Upper Key Stage 2)


It was 
Lancaster bombers dropping red and green flares
The peeling of bells, the whistle of tugs on the Thames

It was
Sailors climbing the lamp posts, Swinging by one arm
Policemen losing their helmets and shields 

It was
Bonfires lit, fireworks fizzing to get released, Dustbin lids clanging,
Paddling in the fountains of Trafalgar Square,
Everyone splashing and whizzing everywhere

It was
How we celebrated Victory in Europe Day in 1945

Do you like cucumber? How to make a salad

This week, the children in Reception have been reading the book Oliver's Vegetables and learning about fruit and vegetables.
One of the tasks was to look for any fruit or vegetables in your garden or kitchen and write some instructions on how you would prepare them.
Aaron chose items to make a salad and wrote about how he would make his salad and what his favourite vegetable is....cucumber!

A Surprise at the Beach by Arielle

Arielle who is in Key Stage 1 has written this adveture story for us:

One bright day me and my friends, Emma and Mia, went to a beautiful sandy beach with sparkling blue water. The beach was in south west England. We went to the beach in the summer holidays. 

My friends were very kind and loving because they play nicely. First, we built some sandcastles then we got bored so we looked ahead in to the distance. There were some cliffs. At the bottom of the cliffs there was a cave. We decided to go and see what it was like. When we looked deep inside the cave, we saw a dark creepy shadow. The shadow was enormous and had a long tail. We thought it might be a monster. The shadow made us scared. Suddenly we saw that the tide was drawing in quickly so we crept nervously to the side. We were very afraid and the thought of being stuck in a cave with a big monster-like shadow made us terrified. Then we all tiptoed cautiously and looked closer at the bottom. We were so surprised at what we saw - it was just a tiny mouse! We were glad that it wasn’t a big monster. 

Suddenly we saw that the tide was getting close so we rushed outside the cave. When we came out, we were so relieved that we giggled at each other happily.  The excitement made us hungry, so we had a picnic. We had a filling sandwich with cheese and lettuce, which was delicious. Then we had a lovely mango ice-cream. After a nice day we went home and told our parents all about our adventures.
