I hope you have all had a lovely weekend and you have enjoyed the little bit of snow today! I am really looking forward to our ‘Just William’ writing this week. We will be watching ‘The School Report’ tomorrow morning to start us thinking of our very own mischievous ‘Just William’ stories.
Spring term 2017
Blog: 19/1/17 A very busy and exciting start to the new spring term.
The Eagles have visited the Life education bus where they learnt how to keep themselves healthy and to say no assertively when someone is encouraging them to do something they shouldn’t. We also had chefs from Premier Foods in teaching us how to make healthy potato, leek and cheese rolls and pear and apple tarts (with no sugar). The Eagles have also been working extra hard in maths and English! They are currently working on their BBC 500 word story writing challenge masterpieces. All pupil conferences have now been completed, so I do hope you’ve had conversations about their progress and targets. [Mrs Miles]
Autumn term 2016.
The Eagles have been writing diaries and letters describing how they have felt if they had been evacuees. They also had a homework project to find out about how the war was experienced in this area.
I was walking with my mum and dad either side of me trying to pull them back. We were going to the train station I was going to be sent away. I finally struggled and wiggled out of my mums gripped as she shouted. “STOP!” She knew I was scared so she held me by the wrist.
I wanted to scream and cry but I didn’t want to embarrass myself. I just let them drag me along; my dad picked me up and put me on a chair in the old rusty train. They held me tight as the doors closed on them. I determined “NO!” I really wanted to jump out of the gap but it was no use. I wasn’t quite sure what was happening, I wish someone was sitting with me I felt bored and lonely. I felt train sick and home sick. Finally we got there I was put on a random metal cold chair. Everyone looked scary coal black eyes stared at me in disgust. I turned my head round my body to see why they were looking at me. Until people , parents , adults were coming in. everyone smiled as phew and phew less people were in the unfamiliar room me and this other girl were left. There I was alone in the room on my own a lady and a man stepped in the room and saw me they left in a flash. But unfortunately I was not coming home with them. They were pushed back in the room and they were forced to take me. I felt unwanted I didn’t want to be with that family I know that is selfish but I wanted my family. I walked back outside and I was taken to their house the air smelt weird , different I don’t know if I like it.
I trudged along the path in between the pretend family. We started to walk diagonal onto the emerald lush grass so I started to pick daisy’s to make a crown. She and he twisted my arm and lifted me saying “no stay still you horrible child.” I started to cry. The lady stared at me with her gorgeous hazel nut eyes. “what do you want you rat.” I didn’t know what I was doing wrong. They sent me to my room and slammed the door. I lay on the floor with my Purple butterfly dress scattering around me. I opened up my brown suitcase what had my expensive bracelet in it and my dad’s old top I smelt it. It smelt like home. I picked up my photo of my great , great grandpa he did a funny face.
