We’ve been learning about space exploration in science. We’ve created our own video diaries pretending to be Tim Peake living on the ISS.
Today year 5 went orienteering as part of our topic. We had to find the letters and unscramble the words using a map of our school. The word we found was ‘Survivor’!
A blanket of crimson vapor engulfed the forest and swallowed the old, crumbling trees. The normal didn’t feel normal anymore. As the trees were pulled down into the underground, there is was – the devil of darkness. Black shadows began to spawn into livid, blood thirsty wolves. Twisting round and watching the movement of the haunted, abandoned village, it’s lava like eyes illuminated the harrowing darkness. Finding it’s was through the spooky and eerie forest, the wolf life creature hunted for it’s tasty prey like a ghost searching to find the girl. Breathlessly panting, the girl woke up and froze in terror. Goosebumps crawled over her skin like a million spiders.

Some year 5’s went to Stockport Grammar to take part in a maths competition. Unfortunately we did not win but we had great fun. The competition combined reasoning and problem solving skills with physical activity. We had to race other children to get questions and then work in teams to find the answers. Well done to the 8 children who took part.
Miss Pinington and Miss Wood are really proud of you.
Today I was sent out on an expedition by my boss but I’m in the Amazon rain-forest right now. I have few resources but i’ll be fine. I remember the three rule we all learnt in training; 3 days without water, 3 hours without shelter, 3 weeks without food . There is a lot of bugs but I don’t mind them. Sometimes snakes sneak up but I have repelent and a snake stick. So yeah I’ll be writing again soon but I’m going to go back and start camp up and see you tomorrow diary bye !
Today I have woken up to a beautiful shining sun. The Amazon rainforest and the rest of Brazil are still sleeping. It’s only 5:15am and it is 31 degrees already. I am surrounded by trees and the most peculiar snakes and frogs. Today I will search the unknown. Right well I am off see you later.
I have had had the most exciting day ever. I stepped out of my tent to the beautiful songs of the sweet exotic birds. Walking down the crooked path I stopped to look at every little detail and report back to my note book. The first thing I saw was a village that is home to the Pygmy Tribe who were no bigger than a child. They were very welcoming to me and they gave me food and water and showed me about village life. I spent nearly a whole day being shown how to make baskets and spears. When it started to get dark and it was time for me to leave they performed a leaving ceremony with Baka music. Then it was time for me to say goodbye to my new friends.
I have had the most wonderful and tiring day and I must get some sleep. See you in the morning to see what adventures await me.
