Den Building Day Fun! By Olivia๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Today all of St.James celebrated den building day! It was heaps of fun. Mrs.Harris’ class and some of the year 2’s joined together and split into groups of four. I was in a group with one of my many friends and two year 2 students, we joyfully skipped down to classroom 6 and each shared our OUTSTANDING ideas! My idea was to stick a pole firmly into the ground, and place a large blanket over the top of it. This meant that we could go inside with all of our other things, of course the den would have to be pegged down! A young boy agreed with me, as he had the same idea. I LOVED my friends idea though, it was to put two chairs opposite each other and place the huge blanket over them, then stick a pole onto the bottom of the blanket. However in the end we decided to do mine and the boy’s idea! After, we decided it was time for a snack break.

When we were called back in the teachers announced… “Let the den building commence!” We all scrambled to our feet and started building. One of the teachers, Mrs.West, kindly let my group go outside. All four of us hurried out onto the playing field. We forced the pole down into the grass and put the blanket over the top, but to our disappointment it fell downโ˜น๏ธ. So in the end we had to change our idea a bit. It was hard doing this though because the turbulent winds just rocked the den from side to side. Eventually, after the busyness of the morning, we enjoyed our own little cosy den. In the end not only did we make a den but we made something else far more important, FREINDSHIP!


Mobile den is made! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Someone has made this beautiful den out of cardboard,blankets and pens.
He has used the pens to draw a CCTV camera,he says that the three cameras are places he has seen and places he has been, like the sky, field, his house and a broken camera. Personal opinion; first class brilliance ๐Ÿ––๐Ÿป


Year 5 visits Cheltenham Literature Festival

Yesterday morning Year 5 travelled on foot to the Literature Festival. They spent an hour in the company of author, Caroline Lawerence. Everyone was captivated as she shared top tips on how to write stories and spoke to us about her characters. She shared parts of her stories with us, to give us a flavour of the historical adventure novels she writes and finally of course before we said goodbye she introduced us to ‘the sponge in a stick!’

A great morning out ๐Ÿ˜€


Hello Class 12 ๐Ÿ˜€

Wow, what a busy beginning to Year 5! Swimming lessons, extreme adventures to space and South America, being inspired by artist Peter Thorpe and poets Valerie Bloom and Pie Corbett, and of course joining the Deltora Quest team on their mission to retrieve the gems! Well done for working so hard! 
Next stop, the Literature festival to see Caroline Lawerence.
