Faith’s big wheel design

Mrs Sharples desk
A pen
A reading book
The door handle

The floor
A chair
The window
The clock

Where do you predict would be the dirtiest place?
Why do you think that?

School Council

A message from our School Council.

Our school council is made up of 11 children from years 4, 5 and 6. We help the school be a better place! We already have held a coffee afternoon, where we invited our neighbours. On parents evening we stayed behind to help serve the drinks, asked parents to fill out the parent questionnaire and some of us recommended books to children at the book fair. The book fair made £1068.89! :-) What would you like to see us do?  Do you have any suggestions for the school shop? Keep an eye out in school for our ‘suggestion box’, where you can answer our questions.

Jake’s Story

Mr. Smith’s New Car

One day Mr. Smith came out of school with a huge smile on his face  he pulled £10,000 out of his pocket.  I saw him from the window, I ran outside and followed him to “Car Motos”.  He went in and 10 minutes later he was in a BMW! He saw me and pressed his the horn.

“Beep, Beep!”

He shouted, “Hi Jake!”

I was amazed at the car he had bought.  He drove it back to Nessfield Drive.  However, he was chased by the man from “Car Motos” who started to bang on the window.  Mr. Smith had not paid! As he opened the window all the cash flew out and blew away.  “Too Bad”, said the man and he took the car back to the shop.

You too could write a short story for our Blog, pass it onto Mr. Smith who will happily publish it for everyone to read.
