My (Finlay) personal favorite activity  was a game called house of fortune where you had to place money (counters) on a board, you have 2 dices and when you roll a 12 you take all the money from the board and I was a deadly EXECUTIONIST who would murder you all!    (Only joking) (Finlay)

My favorite was making the shields for our family with mr hall. (Molly)

On wednesday 25th we all in upper base were dressed up as Tudors.We also took part in amazing activates, at the start of the day we went into the hall to do a cat walk and there were a lot of fantastic costumes but nun as good as our teachers. we did four fun activates; making crests, house drawings, played tudor games and did acting from Shakespeare’s Macbeth then in the afternoon it was normal school.

Nun of this was possible without our awesome staff. (Ewen and Daisy)

Then we had lunch and went into the Mary Rose museum.Finally  we went to the gift shop ! (Abigail and Joseph)

When we went to the mary rose and we went in a glass elevator and I was scared I bit my nails which i should not do. (Esteban and Hermione)

On the 16th of january 2015 we went on an exciting trip to the mary rose museum we travelled on a train. When we got there we did some problems people would have on the ship. We did some interesting maths first we did some maths on how many biscuits they would need and we had to weigh them and use a calculator and some division then once we had held cannonballs and measured out food they would have on the ship.Then we moved on to go round the museum and to take notes for the lesson and report we were going to write. One we finished that we went on a lift that gave you a cracking view of the Mary Rose.Then we went to the gift shop and we could by anything useful. It was sad that we then had to leave back on the train again. We then talked about what we had done.BYE BYE (Amy and Leo).

The visit to the Mary Rose was very intriguing and we saw the skeleton of the ships dog. It was cross between a whippet and a terrier. We saw half of the Mary Rose and all the weapons that were onboard the ship. After the tour we ate lunch and at the end of the day we went to the gift shop and bought some items ( E.G. bonbons ) and we had a very good day there! 😀 🙂 (Jaimee and James)

On Friday 16th january we visited the mary rose museum  to find out facts for our newspaper report about the mary rose. In the morning we traveled on the train to the museum to do a maths workshop. In the afternoon we filled out a worksheet whilst we looked round the massive museum to help us  with our newspaper . We got the train home and had a 15min break yay!!!!!! (Florence and Freddie)

On the 16th of january 2015 we went to the mary rose museum and it was amazing and it had a lot of history in it. (Jake and Phoebe)
