Poet of the Week...so far!!
The Woodpeckers have been writing poetry based on The Story Cage written by Pie Corbett.
The Story Cage
through the enchanted cave
when his eyes glistened
with gold and silver.
Jack climbed up
on the beanstalk
'til he found the castle up on high.
Cinderella was dancing
with the prince
knowing that the
shoe would fit.
Crime Scene Reporters
Children at Mark C of E First School have recently discovered some mysterious events taking place within the school grounds. Unidentified tracks, footprints and crime scenes have all inspired the children to write these ‘factual’ newspaper articles. Although the mysteries are yet to be solved, the children can reassure you that there is nothing to worry about!
On the 9th of October, Friday, the Woodpecker class adventured into their forest area to do a literacy lesson.
Weirdly a child named Josh saw thin tracks in the grass. The member of the class said, “I think the tracks were motorbike tracks!” Then the class noticed that the gate to the forest area was open wide.
One of the class members of the class said “When I saw the gate open.” The class went through the gate over to the log circle. When they went to explore they found a crime scene! The crime scene had tape and food items.
Mrs La Croix a teacher in the school, saw a mysterious black figure the day before the class saw the crime scene heading to the forest area.

On Friday 9th October 2015 Woodpecker class went down to Mark outdoor classroom. They went down to do literacy but didn’t get to for strange reasons.
Local school boy Josh discovered tracks across the field and that the gate was open as well. Josh said that he thought the tracks were from a motorbike.
Mrs La Croix, year two teacher, said she saw a shadowy figure walking across the field on Thursday 8th October 2015.
Woodpeckers walked down to the out door class room and were feeling surrouned by crime mysteries. They walked in and sat on the logs in the log circle.
Briony said “ I’ve got scratches on my log.”
Woodpecker teacher explained the literacy lesson and they all went off. One of the boys said, “There are apples in a basket , 90% coco chocolate a cracked egg , a box of eggs and some squash.”
Year four didn’t find out what happened but were suspicious too.
