The Man Who Walked Between the Towers

Over the past few weeks, 5P have been working hard on writing the story of ‘The Man Who Walked Between the Towers’. They have been learning the value of editing and improving their own writing. Here are a few brilliant examples of 5P’s writing:

Even though he wanted to follow his dream, the crowd was distracting him. Written by Bea.

He didn’t want to let go of his precious dream, which he had held onto all his life. Written by Annie.

Anxiously, Philippe took his second step to make history. Written by Mischa.

Due to the quarter of a mile drop, butterflies reached the cautious Philippe. Written by Mischa.

Cautiously, Philippe took his first step on the muscular rope of doom, which was between the Twin Towers. Written by Ryan.

Stunned into silence, the crowd was amazed. Written by Teesha.

Above the clouds, Philippe walked across the strong rope. Written by Ewan.

Despite being worried, Philippe still did it! Written by Ewan.

However, everybody was watching and Philippe was near to the end. Written by Ruby.

When the glistening sun set upon the magnificent towers, Philippe entered the bustling city proudly – knowing he would achieve his dream. Written by Lydia.

Stealthily, Philippe and his friends rushed up the 180 never-ending stairs, dressed in construction-worker uniform. Written by Lydia.

Early in the morning, as the sun was rising over New York, Philippe cautiously stepped onto the fatal rope. Written by Tom.

Sunflower planting

On Thursday, we eventually got round to planting our Sunflowers in the garden. We are hoping that they will survive such dramatic changes in the current weather! Have a look at our photographs below:

Follow our blog as we keep you updated on their growth. We can’t wait to find out who’s sunflower grows the tallest!


Our caterpillars have been growing at a tremendous rate and we are expecting them to form a chrysalis very soon. View our blog next week to see some photographs!

Jurassic Coast

Our topic this term is ‘the Jurassic Coast’. So far, we have learnt about the formation of Old Harry’s Rocks. Some of us have found it frustrating to not know the real reason behind the naming of the rocks. There are lots of different ideas and myths, but it is not known for certain! Over the coming weeks, we will be looking at different areas along the Jurassic Coast and learning more about the different periods of time that have been exposed in the rocks.


This week we started our swimming lessons. Luckily, the swimming pool is heated, since ten minutes after getting out of the pool, it started to sleet/snow!!

Please could you ensure that your child has the correct swimwear. Your child will need a one piece swimsuit for the girls, swimming trunks for boys (no board shorts, surf shorts or tight fitting longer shorts), large towel, swimming hat (no one is allowed in the pool to swim without one), slip on waterproof shoes (sandals, jelly shoes, reefs) and a waterproof bag to hold everything in.
