I’m very sorry we haven’t had much chance to do our writing challenges. However, this week I thought we could do a challenge based on the work we have been doing around debates.


Canine educationShould dogs always be kept on leads in all public places?

What do you think?

We had a fantastic time on Wednesday at Papa Luigi’s! We walked down to the restaurant to become official Papa Luigi chefs for the morning (complete with our very own chef hats) and made our very own pizzas from scratch!


We we all had a great time and would like to thank Papa Luigi’s for being so friendly and hospitable!

Well done everyone who entered the challenge last time. It can be quite difficult to leave out the word the in your stories when you think about it!

The new challenge is to write a story about an encounter you have with this silly monkey! Where do you meet? What do you do together? Is he funny or annoying? You decide. The word banned this week is AND.

The best entries need to include relative clauses and parenthesis, which we have been working so hard on this week!

Congratulations Abbie for winning ‘THE’ Challenge from last time! I was very impressed with them all!

I look forward to reading them all as ever!

Mr Lyons



Writer of the Week is back by popular demand!

This week’s task is simple. Your writing can be any style; newspaper report, story extract, script, anything! As long as it is about the picture posted with this blog.

However there are some rules. You are not allowed to use the word… THE!

This is much harder than it sounds! Try to earn the Writer of the Week award by using as many amazing writing features as you can!


Good luck!

Today in Year 5

We have had a brilliant day today. This morning, we had a visit from Dr Joanne Pledger, who talked to us about the planets in our Solar System. We then got the chance to draw a scale model.
This afternoon, we had lots of fun making balloon rockets!
Well done, everyone!STEAM week 001
