‘The Skeleton King’ by Lewis

One Halloween, Bob was walking down the cobbled stone path. It was way past dusk. But then he heard MARCH MARCH and an army of zombies stomped behind the Skeleton King with a battered sword.

He followed them into a millennium year old church with a statue made from pure bronze saying ‘Go back!’ He barely listened and crept into a creeky tunnel.

He saw a zombie and chased it with the battle pike to kill it. In the basement, the wooden pillars would not hold much longer. BOOM! CRASH!!! The roof fell down and he saw the Skeleton King. The Skeleton King consumed Bob.

‘Ha ha ha ha haaaaaa,’ croacked the Skeleton King. He was half human half skeleton.

‘Ha ha ha ha haaaaaaaaaaaa!’

I was on my Police patrol driving past the bank all of a sudden I saw a young lady sitting on the floor crying I jumped out of the car and ran to the lady she had scars on her face and a knocked out tooth !   “Are you ok”I said. “He tttook mmy bbag” the lady said.

I immediately got my radio and called for an ambulance, and gave them our location, witnesses stayed with the girl until the ambulance came.

I radioed this information to my fellow offers. I immediately got in the car and went out looking for the man. I drove around the shop I could not see him I turned around I spotted him I pounced out the car got my batten and hit his leg he fell to the floor I quickly got my handcuffs out and put them on him, I arrested him I got my radio and called for backup and a van we took him to the station for questioning and later was found guilty in court     A witness came forward and described the man I got my note pad and jotted down some stuff.

We returned the lady’s bag and her name was Lila rose age 18.

Book Review by Imogen


The Green Ship By Quentin Blake

What is it about :

The story is about two kids, who find a green ship in there neighbours garden and ride round on it. But then they get stuck in a storm.

What I enjoyed:

I enjoyed that it wasn’t just a normal ship and it was very creative. Also I enjoyed that you wasn’t going to know what was going to happen.

What I disliked:

I disliked that it wasn’t very long and I wanted to know what was going to happen next.

My favourite part:

My favourite part of the story was when they climbed over the wall and looked thought the vines at the ship.

I would recommend this book to people who like Quentin Blake and people who like adventure story’s.

Letters to Africa Part 2

As part of their time setting up links with schools in the Gambia, Miss O’Neill, Mrs Marsh and Mr. Kendrick spent time in Bijilo Nursery School in Banjul. Whilst working alongside student teachers from Newman College, they arranged a walk around the local area for some of the Gambian children.

Here are some of the photos from their time in Bijilo Nursery School:-

The Year 4 letters to Africa have also been sent to the head of Bijilo Nursery School – Mr. Baboucarr Jobe. Hopefully, we’ll hear back from Mr. Jobe and his school children very soon!

Some of these photos (and some of the photos of Makumbaya Lower Basic School) show the school garden. It’s very big. Learning how to grow fruit and vegetables is very important to Gambian school children and is an important part of their school curriculum.
