Once upon a time, there were a bunch of wooden wemmicks. Some wemmicks were small, and some were big. Some wemmicks have small noses, some have long and big noses. A couple of wemmicks have stars, but others have small grey dots. A lot of wemmicks can jump over stacks of box's, they can do all sorts of things, but some can not do anything like that. Punchinello is one of them, he tries his hardest to jump over the box's, but he can't. Whenever people make him stand, they always give Punchinello a small grey dot. Once Punchinello stood in water or puddles, people will gather around him and give Punchinello small grey dots. Punchinello was very upset with people giving him small grey dot's. So he said to himself, "I can't do it, I will never get to do what other wemmicks do." While Punchinello was walking down a steep hill, he was very surprised to see one beautiful girl. Punchinello said to the girl, "oh hello dear, my name is Punchinello, whats your name.?" "oh my name is Lucia, how do you do?" "good thank you." Punchinello was very happy and sad to see Lucia. Punchinello asked Lucia,"why don't you have any stars, or small grey dot's on you?."Lucia replied, "oh I just go to Eli."! "who's Eli,? "Eli is the person who made all wemmicks, hes just up the hill." "I always sit in his work room, he doesn't mind." One day Eli said to me,"If you don't want any stars or small grey dot's on your body, you have to believe in yourself." and I did, that is how I don't have any stars or dot's on my body." Every time Lucia does good things, she always gets a star she doesn't want are star on her body it just falls right off. She believes in what Eli said. Lucia said to Punchinello, "why don't you go to Eli, and tell him how you feel about being treated like that." Punchinello was wondering if he should go or not. When Punchinello made up his mind, he said to Lucia,"but what if he does not want to see me." When he tured to see Lucia she was gone. So Punchinello went to Eli's house and started to call Eli's name, Eli didn't respond. So Punchinello walked to the door, and he heard someone say,"Punchinello......, is that you?" Punchinello tured around slowly and said,"yes it is me." Eli said,"everyday I've been hoping you will come, but no this is the first time you have ever come to me." Eli, can I ask you something."oh why yes you can.""How do I not get small grey dots?" "you just have to believe in yourself and my love, don't allow people to put small Grey dot's on your body." Punchinello was happy to hear what Eli said. So he said, but I'm not special,""oh yes you are special, you are my wemmick ." So Punchinello walked outside the door and he believed in what Eli said and the small grey dot's fell off his body. THE END.

Today room6 was split up into two groups. There was a group A & and group B. Group A was the first to go into the pool. While group A was swimming, the other group stayed inside the class and did some work. When Miss Oldfield came back from the pools, group B were in their seats doing their work. Miss Oldfield was proud of us and she said “when the big hand is in between the 10 and the 11 that is when we go and get change.” Then Deja said “when the big hand gets in the middle of ten and eleven, that is when we go and get change.” But we decided to go earlier. When the girls went to get their bag’s, we got given some caps to wear in the pool’s. It was time to go into the water. When we all got into the water Mr Burton said “can you please go and put your hands on the side of the pool.” First of all we played Symon Say’s, then we got told to swim to the other side and back. After we finished doing our laps. We had to go to our groups that we were split into. Then we learned how to swim. The first thing we had to learn was how to swim with our hands behind your ears and kick. I was so excited to learn how to swim. When we finish doing all of our lesson's, we got asked to move to the other side of the pool and wait until Mr Burton said to group B to pick an animal and then we will swim to the other side of the pool were the stairs are and we will get out of the pool.
