Chaperon Rouge by Bluebelle Parker

Without hesitation,she backed up against the delicate wall.She saw a haunting shadow.The frightening shadow started to crack ferociously.She ran as fast as her legs could carry her.The vicious creatures started to multiply.Snap!The wolf tried to grab her rosy coat.She bolted past it.She ran up the insecure log.Jump!Roll! She ran up the rocks.Snarl! She fell. Rapidly,her heart began to get faster,faster,faster. Slower,slower,slower. Suddenly,the girl looked around her,her eyes darted around the wondrous forest.Were they gone? Was she finally safe? The frightened girl looked around the forest to see if the wolves were around her. Or not. Without waiting, she ascended up the stairs . Walking,walking,walking. She finally approached the castle. It was dark and cold. Where was everyone? She stepped out of the daylight. Knocking,knocking,knocking. Crimson red vapour engulfed the room. The door way and a snapping jaw.SNAP! The girl was gone! 

Chaperon Rouge by Honey

A haze of blood- red vapour smothered the peaceful forest. The trees deteriorated and faded into the blood – curdling shape of a wolf. The glow and glare of a red eye incinerated the night sky. Like a viper, the wolf crept through the abandoned village leaving a track of demolition in it’s path. Others started to awake and join. She woke up. Gasping for breath, her heart skipped a beat. Every hair stood to attention as her eyes looked in every corner. Without hesitation, the girl backed to the wall in desperation. She saw a shadow beneath her and it opened. The girl ran through the forest as fast as her legs could carry her. Every step she took the shadows multiplied. The wolves snapped behind her. Faster. Closer. The wolves appeared everywhere. It was a dead end. She jumped off the unsteady log, but still the shadows followed her. She bolted, raced and shot like a dart through the forest. She climbed up the rocks and skidded. Her heart was beating like a drum. She looked behind her, the wolves had gone. Or so she thought? 

Lego Mayan temple

in last weeks topic lesson we got to make Mayan pyramids out of Lego and we also had a compation for how’s was the best,me and my team made a pyramid and a house.for the pyramid or temple we had to get the big blocks and stack them up and to make the house we had to get a wall sort of thing and build round it. 

Lego Mayan temples

Last week in topic we created Lego versions of Mayan temples in groups. My group made a mini temple and a treasure chest with a skull inside the temple. We also built a sacrifice table were the King -a skeleton- had to chop their body parts off. The Mayans lived long ago and some are classed as Mayans now and their pyramids were made of bare stone and they each had over 20 steps to reach the top. Every table was in the competition and we had to share the small amount of Lego. My city had a sacrifice table pyramid and a Mayan house.

What Buildings I Want To See In New York By Alfie Sugden 5P

Next year I am going to New York and I would like to visit different iconic buildings and places including the following.

I would like to visit the Hard Rock Cafe, I have been to Malta and in the airport stood the Hard Rock Cafe. The food was extraordinary and the building was dedicated to rock and roll music with pictures of famous rock artists and various pieces of memorabilia hung up around the cafe.

I would also like to visit the World Trade Centre’s site where the spindling towers once stood. In there place now stands One World Trade Centre and The Memorial Waterfall which has everyone’s name that were either missing or killed in the 9/11 act of terror.

One of the main places I want to visit is Times Square where the Times Square Tower stands, this tower is made up of offices and billboards, the billboards are electronic and advertise large companies such as Toshiba and Sony. Times square also has M&M world and the big Hersheys chocolate shop.

Survivor – Learning to read a map by Skyla Myatt

Reading a map is an essential outdoor skill. The ability to relate to what’s around you with what is displayed on a map is a vital skill. You should learn this first before using a compass. Compass navigation skills come later once you have a good understanding of maps. A map is nothing more than squiggles and symbols, so you should learn some basic symbols. Symbols like how roads are shown, footpaths, streams and rivers, wooded areas and contour lines.

Once  you have mastered the ability to observe what is around you to what the map is showing, you will be able to find where you are. You will also be able to look at the map and see what the terrain is like further ahead on your route. A compass can be used once you can read a map competently !
