In Class 9, we made smoothies and we needed to order the fruits correctly.
In Class 7, we had lots of fun learning about maths and we learnt about money on one afternoon.
In Class 6, we made bread and decorated biscuits with symmetrical patterns.
In the hall, we had lots of fun maths games. One was a doughnut game and another was noughts and crosses. We had lots of activities and games in the classroom.
From1939 to1945 there was Wold War 2
Everyone was shooting ,tanks firing cannons,
homes burning and soldiers charging from
Now today we wear a poppy to remember
those who perished, all their graves lying
silent numbering in thousands
So that is why we wear the poppy to honur
all who dided here on Remembrance Day.

Joe saw all the writers of his favourite books, all writing on a laptop or notepad.He met some of the writersa nd waved to others. He found a rusty, creaky, crumbly staircase. A ghost came up to him and said," You shouldn't be here. Everyone is scared of this house."
" I'm not scared,"replied Joe.
"Is that so? Even if you met Dr Spook?" asked the ghost timidly.
" I might be, how would I know? I haven't met him," whispered Joe.
" You wouldn't want to,always talks about when he was alive, breathing and innocent," grumbled the ghost.
"What do you mean innocent?Not all humans are innocent,"laughed Joe.
"Really, humans look it, they even have lungs," replied the ghost.
Joe felt scared as the ghost spoke.His voice was icy and cold, like no warmthe had flown through his body for decades.
He plucked up his courage and said,"Excuse me kind ghost, but where does this staircase lead to?"
"Dr spook's lab, but I wouldn't be thinking of him this hour, he'll be too moody," the ghost whispered sleepily.
Jow whispered goodbye and went up the staircase.He found the lab alright! The voice of Dr spook came through the open door.
"When I was alive,breathing and proud, I had the best legs ever, but not now, no-one cares about Dr Spook. Don't think I don't know what the ther ghosts say, he moans a lot, he's moody, I'll show them!" grumbled Dr Spook.
Joe crept in through the doorway.
"Who's there? If it's Mandy, go away, if it's Charles, leave it to lunch! So who is it?"
"Joe, I'm here on a visit,"replied Joe fearlessly.
"Joe, you're a visitor I take it, a breather?"
"Yes," Jo answered uncomfortably.
"Welcome to my lab, or as the other ghosts say the 'freak clubhouse'. Only myself here, trying my experiments," grumbled Mr Spook.
" What experiments, for what?" Joe asked,a little excited.
" To turn ghosts to human, or find a way to have human body, mumbled Dr spook.
"Is that possible?"asked Joe doubtfully
" It might be, this is my 1563rd attempt. I've been trying for a year and 6 months now."
"Can I help?"
"Hmm I might need a human to help with the experiments, plus I need a human to fetch my equipment and lots of clean tubes."
" I'll be glad to!" replied Joe happily.
"we won't start yet, too late, we need our sleep," yawned Dr Spook sleepily.
Dr Spook led Joe to a wall with a statue. He pulled the statue's arm, a door opened.Inside was a velvet curtain across the window, soft comfy beds(2),wardrobes and a small bathroom, kitchen and sitting room. Joe swa a picture, it looked like a young man holding a baby. Joe slept, so did Dr Spook.
In the morning, Dr Spook got up, so did Joe.For 53 days they tried potions of all kinds to turn ghost to man, all in vain.
Joe went into the old house's library.He found an old fairy tale book.it said'What makes a human is sorrow,joy and laughter.'
Hmm maybe,thought Joe,Dr Spook has plenty of sorrow, no joy.
Dr Spook used to be a sailor, so did Joe's grandfather.Joe felt sure that the picture in Dr Spook's room was of him, as a baby, and his grandfather.
"Dr Spook,I don't think you'll ever become human by mixing odd ingredients,"Joe whispered nervously.
"Why,what else can I try?" enquired Dr Spook.
"Well, my book says real humans hav sorrow and joy.You have to be happy!"laughed Joe. So Dr Spook tried to smile and laugh all day. after a week, he was almost human.His breath was warm, he had blood but something was missing." I don't understand, why aren't I human?" shouted Dr Spook.
" I don't know,maybe you're not trying hard enough!"answered Joe stressfully.
"I am trying,I've cried,laughed, argued, made friends,what else can I do?"argued Dr Spook.
All night Joe thought about hs mum and dad, he felt a bond maryeven though he was in a creepy house,
"I've the answer, it's love! "shouted Joe one morning.
"What's that?" enquired Dr Spook.
"Well, I love my mum and she loves me,it's like friendship, only more powerful,"answered Joe.
"I don't have any family to love,"whispered Dr Spook, tears fell from his eyes.
So Joe searched for a relative for Dr spook to love. Then it struck him, Dr Spook was his grandfather, who sailed to sea and never returned.
"Dr Spook, I'm your...."
"I know, my grandson ," said Mr Spook. He cried. Suddenly Dr Spook had bright blue eyes, dark hair and white teeth."We must escape!" shouted Mr Spook. They ran into a door, they were floating upwards. They found a platform and stopped to catch their breath.
"Why would they hurt us?"spoke Joe, out of breath.
"I am human, so they shall attack," replied Dr Spook. They pushed open the bookcase, and left the crooked house. Carefully they twisted and turned through all the dusty furniture. soon they were back at Joe's house. Dr spook changed his name to Mr Lupin. That was his brother, a werewolf's name . Joe never ever saw a ghost again, well almost never...

Suddenly he saw a person, or he thought it was a person but he realised it was a ghost. Then he heard a voice and it was very scary.
The voice said"Get out of this cottage!"
Joe said "No!"
The ghost said"I'll get my friends to come and kill you."
He just wanted to run away home. Joe ran back to the bookshelvesand found a book with a shiny red cover, but it had no name and all the pages were empty. He jumped into it , but where would the story take him?

Playhouse Visit 2011
Tuesday the 24th of May the Playhouse Theatre Group came to Carrington.
There were two actors in the play, a man called Jack and a woman called Becky. They played several characters, Jack played the mum, the stranger, the cook, the teacher (Mr. Sans), the butcher and the carpenter. Becky played the main character, Sammy. She also played the holy man and shared the job of being mum. There was a woman called Ali who did the sound on a computer.
The play was about a little girl called Sammy, who lived on an island, beside the beach, with her mother. Her father was lost at sea when Sammy was a little girl. One day, a stranger was washed up on the beach. The people of the village went to see this stranger and they all thought he was hideous. They wanted to kill him and torture him. They locked him up in a goat pen and kept him there for days and days. He was starving and thirsty until the little girl’s mother gave her food to take to him. The villagers got angry and they ended up throwing him into sea on a raft. Sammy watched with a tear going down her cheek. That was the end of the play.
After we had our play, we went into the hall. Ali made us sit in a circle and she asked us what we remembered about the play while Becky wrote everything down.
During the workshop we had a go at visualization. We had to pretend we were the creature in the play; this helped us to get into character (this is something that professionals actors do whilst rehearsing).
First of all we got into small groups and the idea was to create a snapshot of the play. We did a freeze frame of the stranger leaving home and freeze frame of him arriving at the island. The idea of the freeze frame was to get you think about facial expression and animation.
Watching the play was the best bit. Sometimes it was funny sometimes it was a bit sad because you felt sorry for the stranger. It was a great show and told you not to judge people before getting to know them, which is something that will help when we go to secondary school and meet new people.

Tim decided to go to his local library to gather some information on sir Francis dawn, he went up to the Liberian's desk and asked
"Do you by any chance have any information on sir Francis dawn please miss?"
"Yes, we do on aisle 6, shelf 2, book 246." She replied in her friendly voice.
"Thank you." Said Tim. He started walking away to where he thought the book would be. (It was there) he took it off the shelf and read what he needed:
Sir Francis dawn died, but he never got what he always wanted... a sailing ship. Tim flipped the page and there he saw a little picture of a sailing ship. He automatically knew it was dawn's!
That night Tim waited at the spot where he first had seen the ghost . Then a ghostly Francis dawn came towards him red eyes blazing. Tim thrust the picture at the terror. Next a funny thing happened, there was a blinding flash and the ghost had gone, it had disappeared. Tim went back every night for a week, but still no ghost so life went back to normal and Tim kept that secret for the rest of his life!

In fact Seely School was so jolly that no one noticed a dark, mysterious shadow covering the football area ... and pretty soon it covered the whole playground ... there was something green and doughnut shaped in the sky..."is it an extinct bird?" asked one boy from 4A. "Is it a plane from the German Air Force?" shouted a girl, who is a star in history. One boy who had excellent eyesight, shouted softly, "It's a flying saucer?" "You're crazy, your ballistic, your insane, your out of your mind! Well I think - I think it is!" stammered the humiliated boy with the great eyesight. Seely School looked up to see the unknown doughnut shaped object descending from its original place in the sky. "Well, whatever it is" declared a thin boy from year six,"It's going to land on our playground and crush us all." Another boy from year six cried, "RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!" "Are you sure?" screamed a boy with the softest voice you will ever hear. "OF COURSE IM SURE!" bellowed the boy furiously. "I DONT THINK IT WILL!" shrieked the boy with the soft voice bravely. "IT WILL!" insisted the year six boys with gritted teeth. "Stop arguing boys" demanded Miss Lancaster, who was on duty. "LOOK!" screamed everyone at once...
There, hanging just above the football area was an unknown thing that looked like a flying saucer. "I was right" screamed the humiliated boy with the great eyesight, "It is a flying saucer!" He was very proud of his eyeballs. Suddenly... there was a gigantic CRUSH!! The flying saucer landed on the football area. One girl, that loved football screeched, "NOOOOOOOOO!!" because the football area was destroyed, nowhere in sight, completely gone!
A mild and sweet smell of freshly made pancakes, maple syrup, Channel No.5 filled the air. Miss Lancaster seemed to be hypnotised by the smell because to everybody's utter surprise, she started moving towards the unknown, terrifying UFO! Miss Lancaster disappeared. By then, Miss Wesson flung open the door and walked like a zombie to the flying saucer followed by, Mr Hillier, Miss Richardson, Miss Atkinson and the rest of the teaching staff. The first two suddenly... disappeared, just like Miss Lancaster did, a few minutes before. The next moment, the flying saucer was already in the sky. Dumbfound, flabbergasted, thunderstruck, we stood there motionless. I had a sensation that this wasn't the end. Oh boy was I right. It was coming back. FLASH! And it sucked me in.

"DO NOT OPEN!"
Joe thought to himself, "That's just silly. How could you open a bookshelf, anyway?" After saying that, he thought of a little idea...
After pushing the bookshelf aside (which was surprisingly easy) Joe revealed a long spiral staircase.
To Be Continued...
Lee will set up an inflatable goal which will have a camera behind which will calculate how fast the ball goes in. The children from each class who kick it in the fastest will receive a gold medal and a special trophy awarded to them with their name on! The children have taken a sponsorship form and have to kindly ask people to sponsor them. Children who raise over £25 will automatically receive a special addition prokick football and have their name on a school trophy.The money that is raised will go half and half,some to go towards P.E equipment for our school and half to charity of Lee's choice.
Maybe there’s a cave or a cavern or a lake of tears,
Swiftly and silently the crystal weaves its last song.
Go and open the door,
Maybe there has been bloodshed or a battle, or a battle to end all battles,
Maybe there’s a distant voice calling to heaven.
Go and open the door,
If there is a button, press it,
If it is empty as a broken soul,
If it is as old as Gandalf, Never fear,
At least we have the silence.
By Jack Nunez, Year 5 Haydn Primary School
As a school, we had decided that it would be a good idea to have non- uniform as long as the clothing had a number on it. We all looked so bright and colourful.
Even after all this the fun didn’t stop! Key stage 1 had then started creating 2D shapes out of play dough and showing them to the rest of the class.
Believe it or not, the cakes did have an educational purpose as yr one’s had been learning about fractions. They learnt how to give equal amounts of the cake and this really helped.
The playground games seemed to be wildly popular and this was easy to see by the children’s attitudes. They were rather enthusiastic when learning about the co-ordinates just like the rest of the beneficial games. Everyone had a great time!

Water, water that comes out of the sink.
Water, cold it's soaking wet,
Water, water, on the top of your pet.
Water's great in the swimming pool,
Water, water is very cool.
Water's fun, because you can have a water fight,
Water, water,on the days that its bright.
Water, water, splish splash splosh,
Water, water. you'd better have a wash.
Water's lovely, and sometimes hot,
Boiling up in a ginormous pot.
Water, water, as cold as the Antarctic,
Water, water my ice cubes are thick.
Water, water, gushing out the tap,
Better have a bath before my nap.
Water, water keeps me healthy,
Water, water, I'm not wealthy.
Water, wavey dish dash dosh,
Water, water, the waves go splosh.
Water, water, and the great sealife,
Water, water, we're not going to chop them with a knife.
Water, water on rainy days,
Water, water, never skimmed by x-rays.
Water, water, as clear as glass,
Water, water not a class.
