Mrs Newbery's Class - 5/6N 

Ahoy there Shipmates! Welcome to our
exciting new summer topic...



June 2018.... Some VERY exciting writing is now happening in class.  Take a look for yourself!

I awoke to the sound of waves smashing against the rocks that surrounded me.  The mournful sea groaned as it reached the pearly-white sand that I lay on.  I stared into the sapphire vastness that sat in front of me.  Gleaming in the sunlight, it rose and fell in perfect rhythm.  Jet black rocks protruded from the sea; worn away by waves over the years.  They reminded me of our time in Brazil and memories flooded my mind.  The Peggy Sue, Mum and Dad insisting that I always wear my safety harness...

We are very excited to begin our new text... Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo

We wondered what it could all mean...

Then came our Stunning Start...
