We have been enjoying the classic children's story, 'The Wind in the Willows', by Kenneth Grahame, first published in 1908 in our literacy work this term. It has inspired us to produce this beautiful writing.
The draping leaves stroked Mole's silky fur, while clovers gathered round his feet. As Mole bounded closer like an explorer, the bustling birds chirped a sweet, short song. The closer he came the more he was wounded with joy.... - Ella W
"Up we go," said Mole, scattering through the top layer of mud. A moment passed, and Mole came out the mud with a satisfying "pop"! "My goodness, what a beautiful place!" he said to himself. "But where are all the worms?" - Harrison J
Feeling old and grumpy, Mole slammed his washing supplies down and tunnelled aimlessly until his nose popped up above the surface. Filled with happiness, the old Mole meandered, until suddenly he came to a marvellous river. - Albert R
The Mole felt a sense of freedom as he scurried through the lime-green leaves of the enchanting forest. The magical scent of the ripe apples swarmed the air. Even the most stubborn creatures couldn't resist this extraordinary place. Mole suddenly came to a halt, not because of worms, or to hear the marvellous tune from the birds' nests... It was a river, a blue, crystal-clear river..... - Isobelle T
Year Five Sailing Day.
Year five recently spent a day on the water having a sailing experience organised by the Brightlingsea Harbour Commissioners, as an enrichment activity. This was a fun day out, but more importantly it was a very educational experience, where we learnt about heritage, sea life and our local geography. We also learnt about safety on the water and what we should wear in order to be a safe water user.
