Fantastic Writing!

Well done to Julia, her writing has been included in this week’s Night Times (on the Night Zookeeper). This is a great achievement as her work was selected from hundreds of entries! Her story is about new Christmas Traditions.

No Phones ‘Till Christmas!

My new tradition is that everyone should put their phones away on the 12th of December and not take them out until the 26th. I think this would be a great tradition because Christmas is the time for getting together, chatting, having fun and celebrating-not for being stuck to your phone all the time. Christmas is a great excuse to go visiting your family and friends so this tradition allows you to interact and actually have more fun! It will make you feel much better playing games with your buds than it will playing angrybirds on your laptop. It is also any other mechanical devices such as computer, iPad, phone, consoles etc. In the olden days (about thirty years ago) people usually weren’t allowed to get a proper phone until they were eleven. My sister is seventeen and she didn’t get her first phone untill she was twelve. As well as all that I would just like to say… MERRY CHRISTMAS!

We took part in a Google Hangout today with lots of schools from around the world. There were schools from Germany, St Martinique (The Caribbean)  Russia, Argentina and Pennsylvania, USA.

We learned about Christmas Traditions in different countries and we told them about The Wren tradition and the tradition of leaving a candle in the window at Christmas time. 

Lorcan did the presentation about The Wren and Jessica did the presentation about the candle in the window.


A Story by Julia G

One day Amie and her family was going to granny’s farm. It was a very long journey .When they finally arrived they were starving.
Granny made some of her favourite recipe apple pie.
“Can I go outside ?”asked Amie .
“Yes you can but don’t get dirty” said granny.
Of she went , she opened the wooden door and ran like lightning . In the bushes she saw some foxes , she saw a big bee hive, she did not get any closer then a meter .
When she was walking and exploring nature she found a smooth round cocoon attached to a leaf, she was looking at it with excitement, as she turned round it changed shape into a beautiful butterfly with colourful wings and flew away.

The Evil Teacher – Ms O’Death by Lorcan

Once there lived a evil teacher her name was Ms O’ Death,  she was the most evil teacher in the world. Every time someone talked there legs got chopped off and Ms O’ Death would put them in a giant pot, in her garden. One day the whole class talked and all there legs and hands were chopped off . Just then there was a loud bang and the police came in and arrested Ms O’ Death and she was sent to the highest maximum security prison for the rest of her life. The children cheered and shouted ” good riddance Ms O’ Death!”
