Year 5 have been busy writing and filming their own campaigns about an issue we all feel strongly about. Check out our campaign videos below:
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.

BEAR GRYLLS FACTS
By Archie (5P)
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.
Strolling,through the forrest of towering,jade trees ,she looked around the hypnotising bird songs.Inquisitivly,the girl wondered over to an slowly decaying ,bridge where the sound of swaying water surrounded her ears.As the girl happily skipped down into an ancient,abandoned city.Slowly ,turned her head as she strolled and wondered about. The day began to turn to night and the moon was like an eye staring at the girl studding her every move. Night came. The fire started to crackle and the flames began to roar … She began to drift off to sleep In to one of her phenomenal dreams she began to sleep.
Cautiously her eyes darted around the room as she backed up to the derelict fragile wall as she carefully stood up . She looked above her in fear . As a dark sinister shadow formed above her . She ran as quickly as her legs could take her . She dashed ,raced and flew through the forest like an eagle. Then. The wolves multiplyed into hundreds of wolves and soon they were everywhere. She was gasping for breath her legs were trembling. Could she go on ? Bravely she carried on as the wolves tried to to wrap their teeth around her. Her legs trembled as she got closer to the edge. She fell on to a cold rock her heart beating rapidly . Where were they ? They were gone.
Shaking , she slowly got up and she saw in the distance a hazy outline of a castle . She glared at the historic castle and started to walk up the old steps . As she walked up to the top hopping she was safe As she slowly tiptoed through the stone arch way a rose mist engulfed the Castle The arch way turned Ito the shape of a jaw suddenly snap !!!
