I heard from both Miss Hemmings and Mrs Henderson that you were fantastic in the carol service so well done to the readers and choir.
Enjoy the holidays.
With just 1 week at school, and lots of exciting activities (theatre, parties, Christmas decorations), here are few games to get you started:

This week's recipients of the Star of the Week are a double act, who, amongst other things, helped to put together the Howtown Slide Show.
Our thanks go to Jodie and Katie - well done!
This week's Blogger of the Week was Caitlin, who not only did a great 100WC, but also was very diligent in commenting positively on others' work. Don't forget to get your Success Card signed on Monday!
Here is the link to the Negative Numbers game we did today.http://www.iboard.co.uk/iwb/12-Games-of-Christmas-Rudolph-Rescue-1906
Can you do Level 9?
For those of you who enjoyed doing the 100wc.net challenge last week, here is another: Look at the slides below (from a website called the Night Zoo Keeper) and write 100 words about the different items!
This is what the Night Zoo Keeper wrote:
I’m the Night Zookeeper and if you don’t know me, well that means you missed my last 100 Word Challenge! (Link) If you did, fear not! For I have another challenge for you. Interested? Well then you better read on!
Last night, as I journeyed through my zoo caring for the many magical animals that live here, I spotted a number of strange objects. I found a bag, a comb, a mirror, an underwater car and even a bowling ball. I drew pictures of them using my magicalDrawing Torch and I have saved my drawings for you to check out below.
Can you help me work out what each object is and whom it might belong to? Is it Jeff the Forgetful Elephant’s bowling ball, which can grow as big as a football stadium? Is the bag bottomless and does it belong to Writing Dap, an animal that delivers the zoo’s mail?
Good luck and remember that you must venture deep into your imagination in order to succeed!
Next week is the last week of term. It is nearly Christmas (hurray!)
You could write:
a) a description of a festive Christmas in your house (think about the
atmosphere, the lunch, the presents) or
b) a recipe (instructions) for a good Christmas
Remember this is a good opportunity to practise the following:
Openers with commas
Connectives (because, thus, consequently, however, which/who)
A range of punctuation ( ) “ ”
Proofreading when you are finished for capitals and punctuation
The world is watching. We now have thousands of viewers from 53 different countries and they want to see YOUR writing!

Following a trip to the Northern Children's Writers' Book festival, the renowned author Cathy Cassidy emailed one of the editors of Twist magazine to ask if she could include the Twist writers' experiences - what an honour!
Perhaps, one of our writers will one day feature on the shelves of your local bookstore!
