Issy Roberts: June 2019
I had to share the following piece of writing with you written by Issy in year 4 this morning. The class have been focusing on freedom and captivity as two concepts as part of their literacy and work on the Sustainable Development Goals. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.
I used to be free. Used. I would soar gracefully across the plains, doing cartwheels in the air. Would. I could roam. Could. That was before life changed. Before I got shot down. Before my life was ruined. Before I lost hope. Now I cannot fly. I am enclosed in a small space. I cry. But no-one comes. I plead. But they throw rotten fruit at me. I protest. But they clip back my wings. I do not matter any more. No-one cares. The world betrayed me. There is no hope. No trust. No happiness. Just betrayal, slavery and hate. I am away from home. It'll never be the same again. It's a lost cause.

I was impressed with how well the children used the...

Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...
We've spent a lot more time than normal inside this week in Base 1 thanks to all the wet weather, but this has meant that we've had a chance to explore our new 'construction zone'. We have created a space where buildings and models can be kept on display when they are finished. To earn the right to do this the children must write a sentence or a label about their model and display...
