Drama At Nottingham Castle

On February the 8th class 5 went to Nottigham Caste to take part in a drama workshop. We had a great time doing three different activities, one about the black death, in one we were being police and in one we were learning about pick-pocketing. We sang a song at the beginning and had a great lunch after two different activities. The drama taught us a lot about history , all class 5 had a great time. We got to play in the adventure playground, nobody wanted to leave.

Outdoor Learning

Classes 3 and 5 have been learning about maths outddors. We really enjoyed making dens. Our strongest dens were made from pyramids and triangular prisms. We worked really well together and had lots of fun.

A Description of A Mythical Creature

Her emerald ,seaweed hair glows spookily water waiting to strangle her prey.She has a forked tail that bangs on the bottom of the sea, creating terrible waves and storms. On the end of her scaly tail is a luminous lantern , guiding unknowing boats towards her. This fearsome beast has eyes all around her head to see what's going on arond her in the vast ,gloomy ocean.Her wobbly legs are like jellyfish, but much stronger, they sting painfully when you touch them, they have razor sharp claws on the end of them. She has venemous mouldy teeth that she uses to kill and eat her prey.Her talons are very strong she uses them to batter the bottom of boats, sinking them. She has an ugly, gruesome head which has three deadly meathods of killing. Her scales are electric blue and give you electric shock when you touch them.

By Tess (yr 5)


Poseidon's beard is super wavy, it goes as wild as seaweed in a current. His hair is radiant, it sparkles at sunset. Poseidon's muscles are bulky, they poof all goddesses away. His shoulders are so powerful, he makes them sweaty everyday by riding the oceans. Poseidon's trident is so majestic, he slams it down to cause a tsunami. His golden, mesmerising chariot, calms the rugged sea down. Poseidon's temper is deadly, it is unpredictable for the sailors. His powers are so dramatic, they are always consequential.

reading day

On Wednesday 18th May all off Northgate had a reading day. On reading day we had to dress up as someone from a book for example I was dressed as Dorothy Gale from the wizard of oz and my Friend Russell dressed up as sleeping beauty even though he was a boy!! It was very exiting because we did all sorts off activities.


Jim stood still,

Hardly breathing,

Tips of boots shuferling.


Stood frozen,

Middle of the gate.

Heart pounding.

Took chance carefully,

Slinked like a cat.

So close now,

Trying to prepare himself.

Finally FREE!!!

New school!

Soon (after the year 6's have left), the school is being built bigger. It isn't being knocked down then rebuilt, its being built on the top and outwards, like Henry Whipple Primary. Some classes such as year 3/4 have made tally and bar charts about what the pupils what like in the school when it has been built bigger and we made a display in the hall, with all the work on it. Mrs. Anderson (our headteacher) gave each class a A2 piece of paper, including three questions;
1:What do you like about the school?
2:What do you want to add to the school?
3:What do you want to change about the school?
The most voted answers were to have have massage rooms, rollercoasters and swimming pools!

ice skating year 5`s

Every Thursday the year 5`s have been going ice skating. First we split into two groups, then one group goes into a room where you play games and do exciting things, the other group goes to line up to get their ice skates. When we have put our ice skates on we go on the ice. There is two groups, a high group and a low group. There are 4 people in the highest group and loads off people in the low group. Because I am in the highest group these are a couple of tricks that we do. Little man - you have to bend your knees and stretch your arms out in front off you and glide, lemons - you have to move your feet in out in out whilst skating, double jump - you have to do a double jump , lifting one foot off the ground whilst gliding, and last but not least is skating backwards - you have to lift up your feet whilst going backwards and you will begin to slide back wards

S.A.T.S & afterwards treat!

Two weeks ago, the Year 6's started their S.A.T.S. Although they were badly stressed, they pulled through just fine. They all found it hard (even the clever one's, who don't admit it). On Monday, they had a reading test. Tuesday, they had long writing, short writing and spelling. On Wednesday, they had maths paper A and a mental maths test. Thursday, they had maths paper B. Finally, on Friday they had the day off. But not exactly, they walked down to the Forest (local park) and split into two groups-football group ( they'd play football on the field) and the park group (they'd play on the park and all the slides e.t.c). Although the year 6's went to the Forest, the year 5's went as well to say thank-you for being crammed in the community room!

Here is report about Boudicca written by Molly Alexander, 3M, Haydn Primary School:

Where did Boudicca live?

Boudicca was a Celtic Queen that lived almost 2,000 years ago when Britain was part of the Roman Empire.

Who were the Roman Leaders?

At this time, Britain was divided up into kingdoms and each kingdom had a leader. The Romans quite liked the idea of seperate kingdoms fighting each other because it meant that they were less likely to join together and fight against the Romans.

Who was Boudicca married to and what did he think?

Boudicca married King Prasudagus, who was king of the Iceni Tribe. Prasudagus was worried that this would not continue when he had died.

When and where did Boudicca fight?

Boudicca's battles happened when Suentinius Paulinos, the grovenor of Rome was away fighting Druids in Anglesey, North Wales. This meant that the Romans who were left behind didn't have a leader to tell them what to do but... When Suentonius Paulinos heard about the Iceni revolt, he decided to come back which was when things started to go a bit wrong for Boudicca.

When and how did Boudicca die?

Boudicca died around AD 66 because she had poisoned herself with a special type of poison.

Sir Francis Dawn (Seely Juniors)

He saw it, the ghost of sir Francis dawn. It hovered before turning to flee into the starry moonlight night, Tim stood gazing at where the transparent figure had once been...

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!
