It was a frosty morning , and my life was about to end . I walked down the mossy stone steps dreading the day ahead . My life was a horrible nightmare . It had been 24 hours since my fight with the horrid class bully Martha Madfist . She challenged me to a duel at 6:00am at the stone steps . It wa 5:55am . I heard shouting and my heart raced . I spun around and nearly fainted . Martha was lifting 2 adults over her head like they were balloons . Then everything went black . The next thing I remembered was being in hospital with Mum at my side .
On the 20th to the 21st my family went to Stratford for the night . Stratford was the home of William Shakespeare 400 years ago . There are 6 different houses which are: Shakespeare’s birthplace which was were he was born;Halls croft which is his oldest daughter Susanna’s husband’s house who was a doctor;Nash’s house which was his granddaughters husbands name ;Anne Hathaway cottage which was his wife’s house and Mary Arden’s house which is the home of Shakespeares mother . Some facts are:
William had 7 siblings and was the 3rd oldest one of his sisters died of the black death .
In Shakespears time the people thought that if they lay flat in bed that the devil might think they were dead and that they might be taken to the underworld so to sleep they were sat up straight .
They thought that the devil only wanted boys so they dressed the boys exactly the same as girls to confuse the devil .
Children would sleep with there parents on a pull out bed until they were five or till they had finished the candle test .
Children had to learn how to handle a candle sensibly before they could go into a room by themselves . That is the candle test .
In Williams time if you earned 20 pounds a year then you would live quite comfortabley but when William began playwriting he earneds 200 to 300 pounds .
William had 3 children 1 set of twins and 1 girl . Sadly one of the twins died aged 11 .
William wrote lots of plays some of them plays are Romeo and Juliet , Henry the fifth , A midsummer nights dream , Julius Caesar , Hamlet , Twelfth night , Othello , King lear , Macbeth and The Tempest .

Last week, the children made their chocolates that they had been planning for quite some time!
Today, they began using their Literacy skills to plan a persuasive presentation which will take place on Thursday. Using a speech, a poster and a slideshow, the children must convince the dragons (the teachers!) that their chocolate is the most unique.
Here are some early efforts; what do you think?
This maths challenge was by me (Chiara),Annabel.M,Francesca and Maria.
Our challenge was to use the numbers 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 in that order. We could add, subtract, multiply or divide and we had to find a way to make 464.
We had to do lost of different ways but then I came up with this way and we thought that it was very easy and my family and maria’s family and them both could not work it out.
We did itlike this: 10×9=90+8+7+6+5=116 x4=464 -3 +2+1=464
This was very easy and we hope we can do it again.
“Have you ever killed anyone?”The question silenced the room. “Non of your business”I replied shifting about on the wooden plank wich served as me as a bed. “Just asking” Pascal chimed in . I peered at the stars above the plantation grounds “Anyway if I did I would not trust you with that sort of information. Even if I did it would not matter, because when I get my pay I am going to leave this prison and I am going to find what is left of my family. “I shifted about and quietly added”If I do leave then you are not coming with me.”
On Friday the 17th of November I am going to Lanzarote for a week.I am going till the 24th of November.It is going to be in-between 20 and 30 degrees over there so I will have an excellent time .I am flying at 6 in the morning so I will have to wake up about 4 am.I am going to see my cousins who are I think 4 and 1 and a half. I am also going to see my Aunty my Uncle my Grandma and Grandpops.I am so exited I can not wait . I will add some images and information in a little while.
On Halloween my family and I went to one of Shakespeare’s houses called Mary Ardens farm. There were tudors walking around and there was an owl display.We fed all the animals and watched some tudors cook and eat. We went with my cousens and aunty and uncle.We had a picnic and went to hattons farm afterwards.At hatton farm there was an insect and reptile tent and there was a haunted house. There were lots of snakes insects and a giant moth,which my mum could not bear,it was awsome because there was a giant bull frog.There was an indoor play place which we spent about an hour in .There were two drop slides one drop slide with a pit of balls at the bottom,that was my favourite , and there was one kiddy slide.Then we went back to my cousens with lots of sweets and we watched a movie.
It was a cold stormy night and I was twisting and turning in my cold hard bed.It was Halloween and I had a horrible fear of a monster who lives under my bed and at Halloween he comes out to eat your soul. He is called the soul stealer!
Then suddenly I heard a rustling from under my bed . I froze in fear . My life time fear was coming true .I slowly peered under the bed. All I could see were two red eyes peering back at me .They were like two lazers taking my life from me.The soul stealer opened his mouth and my soul was all gone.
