The Time Machine Week 3

You arrive

Write a description about what you can see as you step out of the time machine. Remember to include smells, sounds and feelings. Is it day or night? Can you see any people or animals? Are there any buildings? If you would like to include speech, you must make sure you tell the reader who the characters are.

Also, if you wish to draw a picture to accompany your writing- bring this in and we can add the pictures to our blog.

Homework due Wednesday 20th November.

There was some excellent homework produced last week- keep it up!

Starfish of the Week 8th November 2013

Adam is our Starfish of the Week!



Adam is Starfish of the Week because he has been super creative (remembering our theme from last half term!) and has made a beautiful poppy using wire, tissue paper and glue. He also created a spectacular sketch of The Forbidden City in China using many difficult techniques including shading, 3D effect and making it look like a reflection on the water. If you look over his shoulder on the picture, you will be able to see his lovely self portrait he has drawn also. He has worked super hard all week especially with his reading. Well done, Adam!

Our star this week was Will B for working really hard in Literacy, showing great understanding of our topic Stories from other Cultures, answering complex questions in our comprehension work.

Enjoy your weekend!

The Time Machine Week 2

Where are you going to go?


Choose a place to go in your time machine. I might go back to the time of the dinosaurs.

Write about what happens when you get into your time machine. What is your journey like? How do you feel about travelling through time? Does it make your head spin? Does your tummy feel funny?

To write a successful piece you must use connectives, wow words, sentence openers, punctuation.

The Island Week 2

How did you get to your island?


Write about your arrival, explaining who you are with and how you got there.

Try to think of an interesting and unusual way to arrive, for example I might arrive to my island on a friendly dolphin who I met out at sea. (To write an interesting piece you MUST use connectives, wow words, sentence openers and punctuation.)


Alien Adventure Story

This is an extract from Ethans story, hopefully it will grab your attention. What do you think might happen next? Or do you have any tips for how it could be improved?


“Only 2 more days to go,” mumbled captain gloop as he crossed a day of his calendar.

“What do you want for tea dear,” shouted Mrs Gloop as she walked out of the kitchen.

Meanwhile at HQ General Blob and his team prepared the ship “We better call captain Gloop,” suggested one of the soldiers.

“Good idea,” mumbled General Blob.

“Ring,” “Ring,” went the phone “Can you get that,” called Mrs Gloop, captain Gloop got out of his red stripy chair and picked up his telephone and said joyfully “Hello”.

“This is General Blob we have prepared the ship captain”.

Captain Gloop put the telephone down and marched out of the door saying “Goodbye” he got in his car and drove to the space station he when through the door and General Blob said seriously “It is great to see you again”.

They walked to the ship and got inside Captain Gloop asked “How come we are going today I thought it was 2 days away?”

General Blob mentioned “We had a glitch sir,” then Captain Gloop turned on the engine and then they set off!

Half way there the ship got caught in an asteroid field “Look out……”.

Starfish of the Week 25th October 2013

Ethan is Starfish of the Week


Ethan has been named as Class 9’s Starfish of the Week because he wrote a fantastic Alien Adventure story and published it on the computer, he was able to use a range of simple and complex sentences, adjectives and some very inventive speech. He has tried his absolute best in literacy all week and has been happy to ask for help when he has needed it. I am very proud of Ethan and hope he keeps it up!

My Stars this week were Isobel and Diasy, who also wrote super stories. They thought about their writing carefully and began publishing it in a story book style. Well done to you two!

We have had a super half term and I am looking forward to what next half term brings. Keep updated on our blog for all the going’s on in Class 9!

Have a happy half term, Miss Rogeron.

Looking forward to seeing lots of replies!

Starfish of the Week 18th October 2013


Olivia is our Starfish of the Week!
