Read Scarlett's story if you dare...

Once a long  time ago , a village had just had a new royal member to the family. A prince was born on the same day they had found an evil monster, so they named the monster after the child that was born hoping he would defeat it one day when he was older. But instead he turned down the offer of being the hero of the village because the monster was to vicious.
It was a fire breathing Venus flytrap.
So lots of brave men went forth to defeat it no one was lucky enough to see the monster because it was protected by a barrier of lava and it was a trap all the men were brave so jumped but they were meant to just walk. So the last resort was the royal wimp so he went forth like the others and he was very clever so he walked across and went to the fire breathing Venus flytrap. It was the size of 3 wooly mammoths so it was going to be a tough fight. He wasn't seen for 10 weeks everyone thought he was dead but about 3 days later he came back with the head of the monster. Everyone cheered and clapped they were safe then one day someone found out the lie he was a lair! It wasn't the actual head it was a fake!
So he told everyone in the village and then the prince got into big trouble the he really did. He had put blood of insects on his sword and just found a Venus flytrap and cut its head off. So he ran far and turned wild and became a beast himself. He hasn't been seen since. Maybe you can find him.

This is Scarlett's gruesome description of the monster Grendel!

She has used lots of interesting grammatical features.

What can you spot? 

Gruesome Grendel


A nice  creature was born

By two normal people but…

Anglo saxon  scientists did some experiments on him

And made him a terrifying monster that had gills

A slimy body and claws as sharp as swords

He was an antisocial misfit

When his parents saw him like that

They took him to the swamp right outside the village

And left him there to die

But that was not the case

He could breathe underwater and he was hungry for blood

So he killed about 200 fish a day and sometimes land animals

But he was still hungry for a bigger meal of blood and flesh

The rotting smell of fish and flesh where looming in his den

Then one day his dream came true sort of…

The leader of the village and king Hrothgar

Was never afraid of anything

So he was daring enough to build a  great hall right on the side of the swamp

He invited a lot of rich and brave men to come and have a feast with him

And that is when Grendel awoke (his name wasn't Grendel  when he was born its just his monster form name) he was ready for more food and more blood

He stomped through  the swamp like a toddler having a tantrum

He hated he really did hate the sound of laughter and happiness after what happened

So he went and attacked the hall and a lot of lives were lost that night 

Alot alot of men tried to fight the creature but sadly ended up the same way as the others

Except one, find out more later…!

Archie’s Weather Poem:

The blue sky has come out from its long winter nap,

It’s like the sunshine is being poured out of a tap.

Not a cloud to dull the sky,

I’m so happy that I think I could fly.


The green grass is glistening in the light,

And the sun in the sky shines so bright.

The rustle of the leaf’s echoes through the street,

And you can hear when two birds meet.


As the sun beams down, you have the occasional cold blast

Of the wind but it won’t last.

The scent of fresh air fills my nose,

It smells so sweet, just like a rose.


It’s much to warm to keep my jumper on,

Sat on my doorstep is where I belong.

It’s my favourite time of the year,

When the sky is so blue and clear.


By Archie Biddle (with a little help from my big sister, Ellie)

While Scarlett wasn't jumping in puddles today, she was busy drawing this diagram of the digestive system.

At Mrs Elliott's house, Willow and Lola have enjoyed seeing your e-mails and listening to some of you on the phone today! 

Look what Teddy has been up to!

Hello everybody that's looking on the website. This is the seeds I planted in my garden. First, we dug some trenches that we filled with compost. Next, we shook the seeds in out of the bag. Finally, we watered the seeds and put the labels on. Now we wait for them to grow. We have to water them everyday. We will use the hose you can see in the picture in the corner so they don't die and stay healthy.

Best wishes, from Teddy
