An excellent trip to Ilkley by bus and train this week. The first time on a train for some! We looked around Ilkley with the aid of a map and had to look for books displayed in shop windows.
We then went to hear the author Morris Gleitzman speak about his latest novel which we will be reading soon in class.
Well done both Year 6 classes for an enjoyable and educational trip.

Chloe reads from her “Man on Wire” work
The bored inspector pushed open the damp door only to reveal a vast room full of scrambling spiders alarmed by the presence of a human, “Maybe a different room!” Muttered the terrified man as he wrote ‘Unsafe’ on his sheet of paper.
“What do you think?” queried the landlord. “Lets just say this is the most horrific restaurant I’ve ever seen in a LIFETIME!” shouted the man uneasily, “I’m pretty sure a spider just bit my finger! You need a miracle to save your disgusting, untidy, SPIDER INFESTED restaurant!”
He carefully opened the door and ran inside his white nineteen-fifty ferrari. The landlord sighed.
