Thorpe Woodlands - Tuesday morning
Year 6 are having a FAB time! The weather is amazing, they are joining in with everything and even got a good night's sleep on the first night Have a look at the photos so far...
The year 6 girls had a great time at BT this morning. We looked at different technologies and how they are being used at the moment as well as looking at new technologies that we may all be seeing soon. This was part of a project to encourage more girls in to science, technology, engineering and maths. I hope this has inspired some of you.

Remembrance Day Poetry
Today we have been looking at First World War poetry and using it as inspiration to write our own poems reflecting on war and remembering those that have fought for our freedom. I am really proud of all of poems that the children have written which have shown a deep reflection and mature attitude.
Here are a few of the poems to share with you. If you would like to read the rest they are on poppies outside our classroom. Mrs Baker.
As we fight,
during the dead of night,
there is never any light.
We battle to win,
to have the glory
on our sin.
We suffer to survive.
But we do all of this to keep you alive!
Battle is here.
But we need it to disappear.
war is long.
But how can we fight,
when there is no light.
Soldiers trudge with fatigue,
bombs keep falling.
I keep falling
to my lifeless legs.
Scars on my face.
My rotten boots stay in the sinking mud.
My unblinking eyes too scared to close,
the guns shouting and howling.
Bang! ..... Bang! ...
Scars on my face.
Poppies start to grow in the grass.
I'm lifeless as I trudge,
through the grass with my heavy legs.
Scars on my face.
A single shot in the dead of night.
A body fallen.
So many hearts broken by that single blow.
Just a boy, so unprepared.
His life hardly touched.
At the strike of eleven war draws to an end
And a few survivors return home.
Not physically but mentally scarred.
Forever haunted by the memories
But still in one of the rows,
Where the poppies grow.
A lifeless body lay dead.

English Work 15.09.16
This week we have been creating diary entries based on a flashback film called The Piano.
