School Lane, Staverton, Trowbridge, Wiltshire,
Welcome to Lions
Each week the children are given the opportunity to create a piece of writing, using a picture as inspiration - but it can be no more than 100 words. This week was a ship in a storm.
Ship in a Storm
Swaying, rocking, turning.
The struggling ship battles on.
Churning, raging, brewing.
The storm pouring for long.
Crying, worrying, thinking.
The crew fight again.
Quickly, rushing, desperate.
Evacuating children and women.
The waves rise high.
The loudness of cries.
Clouds turn to ashes, the fire raging above.
Lightning bolts and bright flashes, thumping the water.
Drop of blue. Splash of ice. Same as tears.
Lifeboats sailing away.
Salt bitter. Sea cold. The ship fell into a fold.
Sinking down into the world, into the depths.
Bone to dust.
Ship must rust.

Each week the children are given the opportunity to create a piece of writing, using a picture as inspiration - but it can be no more than 100 words. This week was an iceberg.
Royal baby blue, mysterious and forgotten.
Floating, trying to breath. Not to sink and be forgotten, like friends and family.
White as snow, cold as a young baby left on the floors of London.
Bits of iceberg fall into the ocean, like a child taking their first jump into the sea.
A young, frozen cub left stranded, holding on for dear life. He fell.
Skies went black. Clouds cried the rest of their tears.
The iceberg sank, like a memory. It peacefully fell like a stone, sinking to the bottom of the ocean.
Smaller. Sinking. Gone. Forgotten.

Congratulations to all of the year 6 pupils for completing their SATs this week. You have all worked so hard and have done such an amazing job. We are all very proud of you. Well done.
Each week the children are given the opportunity to create a piece of writing, using a picture as inspiration - but it can be no more than 100 words. This week was a Silverback Gorilla.
Hair of night,
reach the sky.
Heir to fight,
wish to fly.
Grasp the vine,
relish the goods.
rule the troops.
Beat of thunder,
swing the trees.
When at war,
enemies at knees.
Leave no mark,
as the gorillas rule.
Fearless no more,
here they come.
Home destroying monsters,
taking away the fun.
Humans they are called,
the selfish beasts.
here to feast.
Kings no more,
no home in sight.
Plot a plan,
to take it down.
Hide in darkness,
gain back the crown.
Gorillas to power.

To end our Science Week, we visited Bath Taps into Science at Bath University. This was a wonderful opportunity to meet researchers and members of the local science and engineering community who focus on exciting and enthusing young children and families with science and engineering.
Here we were able to enjoy, and engage with science (and by science we always mean science, engineering, technology, maths, medicine and the social sciences) in a fun, engaging and hands on manner. We created and participated in many experiments and had a lot of fun along the way.
This week was Science Week. We made balloon rockets, built our own marble run using various materials and attended a forensic science workshop. Here were we able to find the clues and solve the crime of the missing dog. It was a fabulous week with lots of imagination going into our activites.
