One dark, gloomy night in a haunted pitch black forest lived a gigantic haunted house. The owner was an enormous monster. He looked like a ball of knotty hair and with crispy, crunchy and crusty eye monster. It was disgusting.
There were loads of people in there, we all needed to help them get out without getting caught. We need an invention to help everyone out before they get injured. We needed to find the door because I had scissors in my pocket. I found the rusty crooked door. I opened it.
We were all quiet. One of our friends was behind the door. We had the key, he slammed it closed and locked it as fast as a racing cheetah. We all needed to jump out of the gigantic broken window. We all jumped out the window.
The monster opened the door, we ran behind the house. The scary monster was thinking where are they? We all ran out of the forest, far, far away, all the way to a different country and every one was safe.

Today we did loads of activities in the great Mayan bake off. We made our own chocolate and tried chilli hot chocolate with a bit of cinnamon. We also made our own Mayan masks. It was fun, amazing and cool.

I loved that we made chocolate and decorated it. Our group used white chocolate and then put jelly beans, fizzy cola bottles and cookies in it. It was amazing. I loved it.

The first thing we did at the Mayan blogging was make our own design of a Mayan mask. After that, we drank hot chocolate with a bit of cinnamon and chilli powder. The first part was nice but the end was horrible. It tasted like onions and it was not good .

I had fun doing my mask because I got to draw and colour, it was really fun, I loved it. After that we tasted chilli hot chocolate. I didn’t like it but some people did, they even drank it whole and asked for more! I found that a bit weird because I liked it a little bit but I wouldn’t try it again!
This afternoon we designed our own Mayan masks. We looked at different gods and animals that the masks represent and all the different patterns and colours. We also tried chilli hot chocolate. It was really weird and a bit spicy with a bit of cinnamon.
Elisha: I loved it so much because I like chilli.
Brooke: I didn’t like it because I have never tried chilli or cinnamon.

This afternoon, Peregrine class have been taking part in a range of activities based on the Ancient Maya. At the start of the afternoon, the children examined how the Anicent Maya made and used a range of masks. Once we did this, the children then began to create their own masks.
Whilst we were doing this, we also tried traditional Mayan hot chocolate. To make this, the we added cinnamon and chilli to hot chocolate.
This week in English, Peregrine Class have been examining how to create effective setting descriptions. Here’s an example of the descriptions that we have created today by using features such as similes, metaphors, personification, expanded noun phrases and relative clauses:
‘In the middle of New York, a multi-coloured house sat. It’s windows were blue, green, red and yellow. A tall skyscraper, which was as blue as the sky, stood nearby touching the sky with it’s head. A lengthy bridge stretched across the city.
There were lots of plants sat inside the small house. The ground around was dull and grey. Lights dangled from the bridge like lanterns. A warm glow issued from the light house. Lights were lit all over the city. Cars crawled as the traffic came to a halt on the bridge,a piercing light glowed from the skyscraper.’
‘In the dark, gloomy night, a city was standing there all lit up. The buildings were tall and magical and in the heart of all those buildings was a multi-coloured, vibrant glass house. The house shined across the galaxy with it’s bright colours and it was laying under a long. brightly lit up suspension bridge.
Next to it was a dark sea that was lit up by all the magical lights and colours. Behind the magical building were all the tall skyscrapers and hotels that were shining up the city.’
‘The colourful glass house, which was in the middle of a busy city, stood below the roads where cars flew across like aeroplanes. The city glowed as bright as fireworks. It was as posh as china pottery in a fancy hotel. The house was as big as a normal house. It was beautiful as a rich house. It had shiny, colourful panes but unlike the panes in any old house.’
