We loved meeting a famous author, DD Everest, this week. DD Everest is the brain behind 'Archie Green and the Magician's Secret'. It tells the tale of a young boy who discovers an old book hidden deep within an ancient wooden box, written in a language he doesn’t recognise. The book sounds fantastic and we can't wait to read it!
DD Everest came in to give his top ten tips to the school in assembly, as well as running writing workshops for Years 5 and 6. He's inspired us all to read more and write creatively. Another great step in the Reading Revolution!
On Thursday 13th November we were joined by loads of other school for a special singing festival. In total there were 253 children.
When we got into the hall we did some singing it was great! It loved it. We sang ‘Hannukah’ which was one of the songs.
When we had done that we made loads of noise! We were pretending to be fireworks. All the singing was fun but it tired me out! The ladies at the front told us all about the Music Service in Buckinghamshire. You can go there on a Saturday and play an instrument.
When we went outside for play we were allowed a biscuit and they were really yummy.
In the second half it was even better! It was really fun and the man playing the piano was amazing. So was Mrs Jacob and the other ladies teaching us.
Finally we did some more singing warm ups and songs. First the ladies at the front sang it while the man played the piano quietly and then we stood up and sang louder and louder. I had an amazing day!
The Injury Minimisation Programme for Schools visited Year 6 this week! They taught us all about how to stay safe and avoid danger. We were shown life saving skills and how to react in a crisis. It was a thoroughly enjoyable and informative experience for both classes. We've all been practising our CPR and we're ready to save some lives!

Year 6 have worked their socks off to make these wonderful poppy wreaths to honour those who gave their lives for us. Our service at the Church was a moving and respectful tribute to our fallen heroes, and 6T's outstanding Class Assembly on WW2 and Remembrance was a poignant, well performed extravaganza. Well done, Year 6!

In Anything Can Happen Club we've made the most amazing Mr Sperring guy. The proof is attached. If you'd like to to enter our Guy Fawkes competition, bring your guy to the Fireworks night and give it to myself and Mr Sperring (the man, not the guy).
There will be prizes for the best guys made. So far we are winning all of them!
Good luck and I'll see you on Saturday 1st November for the award winning Great Missenden Fireworks Night- this time the fireworks are synchronised to music!
