Welcome back, Class Ten. It is lovely to see you all again and I am really impressed with the start you have made to the new term.
Just to remind you all that we will be enjoying PE with a Dance Coach this term so please be prepared for that. This will take place on Friday afternoons.
In the build up to the Girls football tournament in Skegness, I will be running an after-school club for girls on Fridays as normal. It is important that we give as much attention to these remarkable young ladies as possible and I will restart full Football Club later on, so don't despair, boys.

The date for the Girls Football County Finals has come through:
We will be playing at the Wainfleet Road Playing fields, Skegness on Saturday 3rd February (brrr!)
Look out for further information nearer the time.
Unreported 'Stars of the Week' include:
Ollie, Abbie, Rosie, Caitlin, Nikitha, Jack E and Otis.
Well done to you.
I've added another news report, with more to follow.
The children are learning to apply some quite challenging grammar to the work. I am looking for evidence of past progressive forms of the verb, purposeful dialogue, which adds something to the characters, settings or the atmosphere of the writing, shifts in formality within the work and a range of sentence types. This is in addition to spelling accurately, presenting work beautifully, remembering to include a range of punctuation and, in this case, utilising ICT skills. I am very pleased with their progress and, as well as making our writing technically wonderful, I am still looking for the 'magic' in each piece. Work-like the one below- is not produced without hours of reading, listening, learning, editing and focus.
I am sending this message to our amazing Girls football team, who are Grantham and District Champions for the second year in a row. This post is being written from my sickbed and I am gutted to have missed your superb performances. Nonetheless, really well done . I know that Mrs Flint, Mr Louth and Mr Watson were thrilled to have witnessed your success.
Skegness here we come!
Author, Dan walker, will be visiting school on Wednesday 18th October. His latest book, Sky Thieves , is a popular fantasy adventure, which some of our children have already heard of and admire. He will be speaking to children from Class 8, 9 and 10 and we are very fortunate that he is able to give up some time to visit us.
He will be bringing copies of his books for children to buy at a cost of £6.50
His visit is happening during school time and we are very much looking forward to meeting him.
The Mystery Man
Hidden down at the edge of the pit,
where a world of unknown mysteries hide
and the sound of gushing wind throwing the unwanted waste ,
as well as echoes of silence wanders round the pit,
and the pitch-black boulders lie like slumbering lions,
deep down in the glooming pit, a man is stalling all alone.
He waits for his fire to burn and then there it is a red hot,
burning orange with golden flames,
right in front of his dark black eyes.
pass through his mind.
There, in his snug cave at the depth of this ebony home .
The fire is burning, roaring, blazing with vicious emotions.
You can here the silence of expectations,
Will something jump out at you?
He Sleeps peacefully , now, whilst the fire burns out, at the stroke of midnight.
Hello to all the new Year Six children.
I am really looking forward to seeing you all on Tuesday and hope you have enjoyed the long break. We have so many exciting plans for you during this very important year and I know that every single one of you will achieve more than you might imagine, express new and existing talents throughout the coming terms and by the time we reach the end of our journey together, you will be fully prepared for new adventures in the wider world.
For now, be prepared to work as hard as ever, bring enthusiasm, endeavour and excitement with you (as well as PE kit, which you'll need on Tuesdays, for all the extra curricula clubs, matches, unexpected sporting events etc.)
See you very soon.
