Bassistry Arts inspired us to dance, sing and play. Some of the rhythms, especially the Samba, were really hard to play. We performed our song and dance to the rest of the school in the afternoon. The photographs are testament to how much we enjoyed the experience.

10/ 12/15 Extracts of pupils' creative writing from this week:


"Alice Brent was the new girl, she had long red hair, blue eyes, a freckled nose and a perfect smile.  The golden summer sun, peeped through the window at the desk of the working children.  Suddenly, the bell in the hall let out an ear-piercing ring and a herd of children stampeded down the corridors like elephants."  Written by Kitty


'Lights and colours flashed, and noise was blocked out.  Salim opened his mouth to scream but before he could generate any sound he felt the air being knocked out of him.  There he lay, shrunken, still and staring into space.  Towering above him, the conspicuous lady stared down on him, her eyes balls of fire, melting him to nothing.'  Written by Emma


NP: As the children in Year 5 mature, they will begin to show  an increasing wisdom and awareness of life in their writing; as you can see below one pupil has started to wrestle with the tricky subject of death in his narrative.


"Salim's funeral was a depressing day for Ted and Kat.  They watched their cousin being buried in shame.  The candle, dripping wet wax in their hearts was blown out, no more would they ride the Eye; the memories were too tragic.  Everyday, after that, they visited his grave, remembering that whatever Salim was put through, he came out the hero, vanquished, as he made the ultimate sacrifice to save his cousins." Written by Toby
