Chocolate Cake by Mr Rosen

I love chocolate cake.
And when I was a boy
I loved it even more.

Sometimes we used to have it for tea
and Mum used to say,
‘If there’s any left over
you can have it to take to school
tomorrow to have at playtime.’
And the next day I would take it to school
wrapped up in tin foil
open it up at playtime
and sit in the corner of the playground
eating it,
you know how the icing on top
is all shiny and it cracks as you
bite into it,
and there’s that other kind of icing in
the middle
and it sticks to your hands and you
can lick your fingers
and lick your lips
oh it’s lovely.
yeah.

Anyway,
once we had this chocolate cake for tea
and later I went to bed
but while I was in bed
I found myself waking up
licking my lips
and smiling.
I woke up proper.
‘The chocolate cake.’
It was the first thing
1 thought of.

I could almost see it
so I thought,
what if I go downstairs
and have a little nibble, yeah?

It was all dark
everyone was in bed
so it must have been really late
but I got out of bed,
crept out of the door

there’s always a creaky floorboard, isn’t there?

Past Mum and Dad’s room,
careful not to tread on bits of broken toys
or bits of Lego
you know what it’s like treading on Lego
with your bare feet,

yowwww
shhhhhhh

downstairs
into the kitchen
open the cupboard
and there it is
all shining.

So I take it out of the cupboard
put it on the table
and I see that
there’s a few crumbs lying about on the plate,
so I lick my finger and run my finger all over the crumbs
scooping them up
and put them into my mouth.

oooooooommmmmmmmm

nice.
< br>Then
I look again
and on one side where it’s been cut,
it’s all crumbly.

So I take a knife
I think I’ll just tidy that up a bit,
cut off the crumbly bits
scoop them all up
and into the mouth

As part of our topic, ‘Why is Paris the city of love?’ we have been looking at famous landmarks.

The children made their own Eiffel Towers using black strips of paper.  They look amazing!  Enjoy!

What a Performance!22-01-2018 | 13:06:56 | No Comments

Working hard on our poetry topic we looked at changing the verbs and proper nouns in “The Magic Box” by Kit Wright.

We then used pace, intonation and stage presence to perform each modified poem to the class. Onomatopoeia and alliteration really came through in our learning and were brought to life with each performance. Well done Class 10. You are poets and know it!

Are fish and chips always unhealthy?10-04-2017 | 16:53:05 | 2 Comments

I’m sure you may have been made aware that we are aiming to become a healthy school so therefore as part of our DT project we were given a challenge to make a typically ‘unhealthy’ dish into a healthy and nutritious version. We decided to take on the challenge of transforming one of England’s most famous dishes into a meal we can enjoy as part of a balanced diet.

We began by visiting the famous Harry Ramsden’s chip shop and ordering a typical fish chips and mushy peas. The cost of just one meal came to a whopping £8.20!!!!!! We headed back to school where we tasted and analysed the food discussing smell, taste, texture, appearance and nutritional value. We found that the dish added up to a huge 1493 calories and 28.02g of fat!!!!!! Nearly a full days calorie allowance in one meal.

We then researched ideas to create our own healthier version and came up with some great ideas. We decided to use sweet potatoes for chips, fish with breadcrumbs and garden peas as a side. After making the dish we then analysed our healthy version of the dish to discover it has just 450 calories and 9.6g of fat!!  To top it off, it was miles cheaper to make our own! Much better value for money when counting the pennies!! An all round better option it seems.

So, we have discovered that that NO… fish and chips are not always unhealthy!!

We reached our attendance target!!!!!!09-04-2017 | 14:08:35 | 2 Comments

Class 8 finally reached their attendance target and were therefore rewarded with a little party!! Thank you to everybody that contributed some treats. We had a great morning!! Anais brought in her pet tortoise Turbo and Miss Walsh brought her dog Maisie. We played outside with her taking it in turns to throw the ball for her. She loved it! We then had a little dance and played a few games. Perfect way to end a great half term.

We could reach the target again if we manage to have a full house for 17 days before the summer term is over which would mean another treat!! Please help us reach our targets by coming in everyday on time.

Are all rocks the same?09-04-2017 | 12:34:24 | 2 Comments

During science we turned into Geologists to search for different types of rocks. We had to then identify the rocks and classify them according to their properties. We learnt about the 3 main types of rocks called; metamorphic, Igneous and sedimentary and how they are formed. Our answer to our leaning challenge; No, rocks are actually very different!

Causing eruptions!!!09-04-2017 | 12:12:02 | 2 Comments

During topic we recreated volcanic eruptions using bicarbonate soda, red food colouring, fairy washing up liquid and vinegar. The chemical reaction causes an ‘eruption’. We had lots of fun even if it was messy!
