David Almond- the author and mastermind behind Skellig- starts the story when Micheal and his family are getting shown around the house by Mr Stone, who was the estate agent. As the story unfolds, It is shown through numerous pieces of evidence that the house needs renovating, for the house is dirty, dusty  and ancient: even the toilet is unpleasant. Tragically, a man called Ernie mysteriously died, as a result of this his deceased body was discovered under a rotten maggot-infested kitchen table. Micheal being the curious boy he is, as soon as he could, explored the garage that seemed to drastically surpass the levels of contamination of the house. Michael’s eyes wandered around the room like a cats would trying to catch a lazer. The garage was jam-packed with: creepy bluebottles; awful spiders; disgusting layers of dust; old furniture and sitting right ontop of the sofa was a mysterious man, who gave a murder-like stare.

Memories of year 6

My favourite memory in year 6 is going to attendance trips with the class. Also I liked doing gas masks it was fun. My favourite bit was wearing it I also liked when we decorated the ginger bread man and had free time . The staff are helpful and caring without them we would be lost and Mrs Bradley ,mr Newton are amazing they care for us as if we are their children.

My school year-2017

At the start of the school year I wasn’t expecting to get Miss Swenney AGAIN! I got miss Sweeney in year 5. At the start of the year we got some new people in our class. We all got along with each other and we all learned new things this year we learned: how to stay healthy, the polar regions, WW2( world war 2). Some people have Miss Sweeney for maths but the others have Mr Shield and I am one of the people to have Mr Shield for maths. We went on trips and did fun things together. On Sunday 4Th July, we went on a trip to France it was really fun we went fencing, swimming and did a zip wire. It was so much fun! Sadly it was time to go but it was much better on the way back to home.

World War 2 (WWII) began on the 1 September 1939 when Germany invaded Poland. It lasted until the 2 September 1945, just over six years and a day! Unfortunately, over 6million people were killed. During WW2, Winston Churchill was elected Prime Minister in the UK (United Kingdom). In this text, you will find out about: wonderful women, Anne Frank and kids corner.
Wonderful women:
The war changed women from being ‘housewives’ or doing ‘women’s jobs’ that they were expected to do; they had to  undertake the men’s role and get physical jobs like: engineering, driving  fire engines, they also had to work in factories making bombs and air-craft parts etc. Women shockingly only got paid £1.85 a week for working a minimum 50 hours, but this later got increased to £2.85. This still wasn’t a lot but as long as they could afford their essentials like: a toothbrush and toothpaste, etc.
Anne Frank:
Anne Frank, who was born in Frankfurt, Germany 1929, was a Jew, who was forced to hide during the Holocaust. She and her family, along with four others, spent two years hiding during WW2 in her father’s office in Amsterdam. Adolf was prepared to do anything to get rid of all the Jews in Germany because he believed that Jews were to blame for the loss of WWI. Also, the Jewish people did not fit in with Adolf’s picture of ‘perfect’ Germany. Anne and her family managed to escape the Nazi party. A long her journey she wrote in her diary everyday, that has now become one of the  most powerful memories of the Holocaust. Anne wand her family were caught and arrested and later transported to the Auschwitz death camp in Poland. Her and her family later got transported to the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany, where she later died.
Kid’s corner:
Adolf died on the 30 April 1945. A week after Germany surrendered.
VE-day was announced by Winston Churchill to mark the end of war in Europe.
