On the seventh of February ,we went to a theatre called Paul Robeson Theatre to learn about an author called Anthony McGowan.He was funny and interesting at the same time he also wrote a book called The Donut Diaries all about a boy called Dermot. There was a competition to see who got the best question. Unfortunately, none of us won any books but we still had fun!
Antony told us loads of stories about his childhood and it was super funny!! Antony was as silly as a monkey, he was so funny towards us and he is a good person!
When the show was finished, we got a chance to buy a book and get it signed by the author. Since we didn’t buy a book, my classmates and me got a paper and the author signed it. Then we climbed down the stairs to the parking lot … We got in the mini bus and drove back to school just in time for lunch.
We all enjoyed this trip and it was a great experience for us.

The format of the tournament was that we played seven games each but some of us only played five or six.

We have been reading a book called beyond the deep woods and we would like to recommend this book to ages 10+. It is about a young boy named Twig which has been raised by wood trolls and he is destined to find his parents in the deep woods which means it will be a lifetime journey for him.
Here is some of the blurb: abandoned at birth in the perilous Deepwoods,Twig is brought up by a family of woodtrolls. One cold night,Twig does what no woodtroll has done before-he strays from the path.
On Wednesday 4th January, Year 6 made light boxes out of shoe boxes . We had to bring a shoe box from home, as part of our homework. We got in to partners with the person beside us. Firstly, we blocked all the holes that were already on the shoe box. After that, we cut a flip-flap on the top of the box. Then, we made a pencil hole on one of the sides. As a light source we used a torch. Inside the box we put an object. After that, our partners held the torch above the flap while we looked through the pencil hole. When we looked through the pencil hole we could see the object very clearly because there was a light source. On the other hand, without the light source we could not see anything.
The experiment was very satisfying because our predictions were correct.
