On Tuesday 18th June, Greenfields girls competed in the football League Play Offs. There were four teams but unfortunately, one of the teams dropped out so our B team Greenfields girls stepped in. Greenfields B team were in a black kit and the A team wore white! The first match, the A team won 3 nil and the B team lost 1 nil. Second match, both Greenfields teams played! The A team won 3-1. In the last match, it was tied and if the A team won the match, then they would win the Play offs, but sadly at the end of the time they lost 2 nil! In the end they came second and our other Greenfields team came fourth but they never gave up! They were a good team to play against! Well done everyone!

Lucy and I (Lauren W) did Shut The Box and we played it with the Year 4 and 5s, it was really fun! Also they played some other amazing Maths games that we listed above! How to play: First, we told them what to do. Then they got two dice and they had to get the right number to get the blocks down. If you didn't get the right numbers, you couldn’t knock them down so you had to pass the dice around until the person knocked the last block down.
If you would like to have a go at some puzzles and mind muddlers please visit this website:

Delicatly I twisted it and the sound was deafining! A giant mix of whispers and secrets, laughs and scowls. Everything you could ever hear in one, bubbling potion. Confused, I attempted to close it again but only white stood there. Where the manor had stood, where everything had stood, now was completely blank.

Part of our topic was to find out about an island and work in groups to research the human and geographical features of it. We had to present to the rest of the class. Each group did this and so we all learned about new islands from each other.
Mrs Prior thought our presentations were really good and even she learnt a lot.
Here are some facts you may not know.
Did you know......
1. St Helena is the second most remote island in the world.
2. Hawaii has more visitors in ten days that Tahiti gets in one year.
3. The elephant bird used to live in Jamaica but is now extinct. It was the heaviest bird in the world.
4. Tristan De Cunha has the most active volcano in the world.
5. Madagascar is located in the Indian ocean.

This was my old life. I was separated from my mother many years ago after a dreadful car crash. I have never seen her since. Not that mysterious cat we used to see.
Worried and scared, nervous and therefore afraid, I entered the bath- room, which was now mould-covered. It was the same.....the orange soap we used to buy was still there....nothings changed. If only I could have my mother back, if only I could have my life back, then my heart would be healed.
Ten years ago a rich, hard-working family found a child (or at least, a youth) dead on their doorstep. They claimed it was 'more mysterious why she wore an orange minidress than if she was alive!' They didn't know she was my sister......

Today is very wet and rainy but our activities carry on regardless! Some of us have been in the underground maze, some of us doing survival skills, confidence course, orienteering and initiative exercises (we have lots of initiative now!) We are all having fun even in the wet and had a great time at the disco - Samuel A and Elise won the awards for 'best dancer'. We can't believe that today is our last full day! We will see you all tomorrow!

We can't believe it is day 3 already! Last night done of us did rifle shooting and the instructor was very impressed with our aim. Liam, Matty and Harvey were a brilliant shot. Today, some of us have been in the underground maze. That is a little like marmite - you either love it or hate it.
Others of us have completed the confidence chose and every one of Mrs Prior's group completed it with NO FEAR!
We've been climbing, doing initiative exercises and archery too. Karis was so powerful with the bow, she shot into the trees and we all had to hunt for her missing arrow.
This evening, it is time to shower (a first for some!) ;) spruce up and we're off to the disco.
The messages to you all from us are "it's fun" and "it's great"
Goodbye for now..

We have had a very busy day! We all went down to the lake this morning four canoeing and kayaking. Most if us managed to stay dry but a few(!) fell in (Karis, Dylan, Charlotte and Emily) The weather was lovely and kind to us. After lunch, it was survival skills, zip wire, confidence course, abseiling or rifles depending on which group we are in. Everyone is really well behaved and all are very happy. They are all joining in the activities and trying lots of things. Hope everything is fine back home and you are not missing us too much! Thank you for your coments - keep them coming!

I sped up and when I reached her all I could do was comfort her until sudden realization gripped me. The fox was alive, its chest rising and falling rhythmically “MUM, It’s alive!”
“No, it can’t be”
Hurriedly, I placed her hand on its chest. “See! It needs a vet, and fast!”…
“We were meant to be going on holiday today, to New York!”
We speeded down the stairs and got in the car. My Dad pressed down on the pedal and away we went, speeding through the cars, vans and lorries. Then I saw a sign for London Heathrow T2 so we drove through the gate. Then the car stopped suddenly, we all jerked forwards when we stopped. So we rushed into the airport. We caught the plane just in time...
The car stopped suddenly... Worried and scared, tired and cold, I ran as fast as I could to get away. I fell! I gave up, they had me. If only I did what mum said, if I only hid and screamed for help, then I wouldn’t be in this mess.
The large, scary man grabbed me before I could blink. He put me in his bag. The only fragrance of his car was; Coconuts! Where was he taking me? I was worried-sick. “Bye life...” He shoved me in a warm, smokey room. I was blindfolded [and choking!] It was my mum’s boyfriend...

I was taken to hospital, and I had a blue band on my hand. I walked around, and found I was alone. Then I saw a T.V with the news on it.
“And any human with a red band is infected, BAD!”
Suddenly I heard feet running around, and I saw red bands all around the floor...
grass was turning brown.All the natural things were being destroyed, yet everything man made was growing. This was my worst nightmare, I love the natural world. What should I do? I ran back to my house. the world was falling apart. This was the end...
Two years early, out of the blue he came at me, he said to me “ Are you ready?” What for? I’m still figuring that out, now. The next thing I knew, I was in this house, the house that I am in today. I was locked in my empty bedroom with only a blanket to sleep with. My biggest nightmare...
