Once again I am staggered by the quality of writing from Base 5. Today they have been describing the island of Wing from our class text, an island that is slowing drowning in the ever rising sea. Here is a little something written by one of our Year 6 pupils today...

At the very foot of the grieving island were tempestuous waters. Taking angry gulps at the vulnerable island, cutting through it as a blade would.

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...
