The Ups and Downs of WWII
Today a new book came to our school called 'Beneath the Surface'. We have read the first book, called 'The Watertower'. The start of them both are the same but the second one has a bit more detail. Both books are a bit creepy. Sirs voice makes the story sound really scary!!
I prefer the second book, the sequel, because Spike gets turned into an alien and 'Beneath the Surface' gives more information and detail. In the first book it show Bubba and Spike as like 10,11 or 12 year olds but in this follow up, it shows him 20 years older precisely because it says so in the book, but everyone says that he looks 50 odd.
I prefer the first one because it has more of a mystery because he hates the water then at the end he loves the water. At first he said that his mother didn't really care where he went but now he said what a worrier she is. There is a lot of mystery in the first one.
Hannah: My favourite line is 'From the moment he stepped off the coach, he knew they were watching'. I like this line because it has a lot of thought. Watching from what is the point?
Sam: My favourite line is 'Nobody in Preston could remember when the water tower was built or who had built it,' because it makes you think at the start of the book.
In conclusion, we think that both books are fantastic and we really like the fact that the author has made the book look like it is a mystery. These books are really good!!!

Children In Need
Today was Children in Need Day. Everybody dressed up as superheroes or their inspiration. Yesterday Pudsey bear came to our school to collect money for charity and to say a friendly hello. He gave one of the teachers in our school a hug and our teacher got one too. All the reception students were swarming Pudsey to give him a hug. While we were waiting for Pudsey to come, we all sang songs and we had sing twinkle twinkle little star. Our school is very good for charity.
When Pudsey came to our school we thought our school was the first one that he went to. But he told us that his first one was Gellionnen. When Mrs.Mccomas was told that our school wasn't first she got sad. Mrs. McComas got a hug and told Pudsey that Mr. McComas was her husband, Pudsey got upset and went to give Mr. Mccomas a hug. Pudsey got a picture with the reception children.

Cwmtawe Skills Day
Today year 6 went to Cwmtawe Comprehensive for a skills day and we were asked to make a bridge out of A3 paper and masking tape.
We were set a challenge to make it the strongest bridge and we would get a reward for whoever held the most weight and which one looked the best.
We all had a great time and we all thought that it was an interesting day.
Year 6 class in Clydach Primary School. There are 18 girls and 13 boys.
