Welcome back after half term.  Hope we are all ready for another fun filled term.


Don't forget to bring your trumpets back on a Monday if you take them home and make sure you have your full PE kit in on a Wednesday.


This term our topic is 'Invaders' and we will be looking at the Saxon and Viking invasions.  We will start the week off looking at 'The Mystery of the Empty Grave'.  Linked to this our class book will be 'Beowulf' by Michael Morpurgo.


Looking forward to having you all work as hard as normal.


Parents, if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email on the link below.

Fight for Hogwarts


The heavy metal shoes banged on the once clean marble staircase.  The staircase used to be warm and welcoming, now it gave a sense of foreboding.  It was chipped and cracked.  


The Carrow twins gingerly tip-toed over to their cruel master.  Voldemort was contorted with rage and silent fury,  "what about the boy?" he snarled.


Hedwig was perched on Harry's shoulder, with a dead mouse in her sunset orange bill.  Her eyes were acid green.  Something felt unwlecoming.  Maybe it was the way the trees whispered, or the way the shadows mumbled.  Bang! Black smoke erupted.  Figures in black robes woven from and rusty, silver masks the shape of skulls stood in the billowing smoke. Death Eaters.  Not sent to kill, but to injure to injure badly.


"Crucio! Crucio!" the Carrow twins cackled.  They liked practising curses on first years, it them feel Master could count on them.


Hogwarts was a war-zone, Hogwarts was a deadly war-zone.  Mountain the courtyard, trolls lumbered around the courtyard, glassy eyed, you could hear their ear-splitting, deafening roar.  They had ten foot long clubs, that had metal shards as long as a Mongolian River Nargon inside them.


Harry and his friends were surrounded.  Blood was running from Harry's nose and mouth.  It tasted of rusty metal.  There were dozens of green flashes, Hedwig squawked ferociously as Harry shouted "stupify!"  He dodged the green bangs and made his way into the Forbidden Forrest......

Tuesday 26th September - European day of languages.

Sphinx class have been looking at Greece.  We started with Athens vs Sparta - the Athenians were the winners!  Followed by designing our own shields and crests.  We have also tasted olives and feta cheese - not everyone thought this was fun!
