Chestnut writer of the week

Public speaking by Ruby

As powerful as you are,

You may be scared.

But you should know,

Being yourself is better than being anyone else.

When you get up there on the stage,

And see a thousand eyes looking at you,

Getting down is not an option.

Because when you are up there,

You can’t get down,

Because otherwise you’re missing an opportunity to be great.


This week we have kicked off our new topic ‘Traders and Raiders’.For our memorable experience we built our Saxon ship to sail to Britain – ready to invade! In our Literacy lessons we are becoming reporters and creating news articles to explain this event!

What did you enjoy about your first week back?
