In the victorian streets of Piccadilly lived a frog, a teapot and a pocket watch. On one grimy day, as the rain poured down like a shower, the frog and the pocket watch sheltered inside the teapot. “When will this downpour end?” enquired the pocket watch. “I am dreadfully cold.”
” I’m not quite sure,” huffed the teapot, who came from a posh heritage.THUNK! “What on earth was that!?” they cried in unison.
As the aristocrat enjoyed a nice cup of tea, feasted on frog legs and checked the time on his pocketwatch, he smiled to himself. What a profitable day!
Lately in guided reading, I have been reading Why The Whales Came by michael morpurgo. My favourite part is where Big Tim tries to knock down the birdman’s cottage, although he doesn’t! It is a really good book that I recommend to others. This book is legendary because it is superb and it has a lot of information about the war in. Things like, what it was like , who ruled The war at the time, who won. etc.
Big Tim keeps telling everyone that the Birdman is telling lies about the narwhale washed upon the sandy beach of Samson Island. My opinion on this book is that you should read it as it has good information and a brilliant story base to it.
I hope that if any body reads the book, that you enjoy this amazing book as much as I did!!!!!

Since Sally explained to miss button about the clock Sally went to charlie bates the clock maker to get him to fix grandfather. Sally needed money to pay charlie so she visited her neighbours to earn some cash. When she went to the box family’s house Sally had to dig up weeds only earning ninety-four pennies. The next day she went to the Smellie house hold to baby sit mrs Smellie’s son. She was surprised when Linda Smellie handed Sally ten shillings. At home Sally found a mysterious package on the door-mat,it was full of money. Sally used the money to pay Charlie and told him to keep the change for letter deliveries. A few days later Sally’s farther rang to talk to Sally he explained how miss Button had told him about mother and reveled that Sally’s mother would be home in about ten days. Sally started to worry as charlie had told her that the final piece of the clock would’nt be finished in time. Sally’s farther asked to talk to mrs Spinks. When mrs spinks got off the phone her face was drawn as she turned to Sally. Sally’s farther had given mrs spinks a harsh telling off because Sally had told her farther that mrs spinks was always horrid. As mrs spinks was so ashamed, she let Sally have some fish and chips for tea. The day before her mother was due back Charlie sent Sally a letter telling her that the clock was finished. He came in the afternoon to deliver the clock. The next day sally’s mother, father and brother got home, sally’s mother had noticed something different about grandfather. Sally was so sad that she told her family everything, about Amber, miss Button, Charlie Bates and about having to lie to mrs Spinks. Her mother did not mind about grandfather and really thought he looked better. Sally’s mother had a welcome home party and invited everyone she knew.
This is another leadranary book by the brilliant Micheal Morpurgo. Including all the right describtion , illuring any reader to this fantastic story. Enjoying this book so much it is hard for me to pick a favourite part of this story. However I did prefer the part were all the people of the village even Mr Wellbeloved ( Gracie and Daniels teacher ). Were helping the whale get back to the sea before the Island of Scilly captures the curse , of which was implanted the same on Samson. I have only yet read 2 of the superb Morpurgo books , however I exceedingly much so enjoyed reading both books as I was hooked into the Story ‘ s written. Although I did get quite bored yet I read on noticing the brilliant description involved throughout the story. I applaud Michael in writing this story even though I didn’t personally don’t like this book I’m sure others will.

I am writing this piece of work to tell you what I am looking forward to this half term.
I am quite looking forward to learning about the Ancient Egyptians a bit more. Another thing I am looking forward to, is our Comic Relief Day. Every year we try and raise lots of money by people bringing in money and people bringing in sponser forms for events they will take part in.
Also this half term, the year sixes will be going to a science morning at King James’s High School. On top of that, we will also be going to a maths day also at King James’s. I am not too sure, but I think last years year sixes did an experiment where you hold bubbles and they set your hands on fire at the science day. I really hope that we will get to do that this year!
Finally, I am looking forward to reading a few more or hopefully finishing the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz!
Lucy was five years old, her and Jeremy fisher (her toy frog) where at grandma’s caravan having tea and biscuits. Grandma was pouring tea out of her china tea-pot when Lucy noticed a silver chain hanging from Grandma’s pocket.” What is that Grandma?” asked Lucy. Grandma searched around in her pocket to find a amazing silver pocket watch.”This is your great grandad’s watch,” Explained Grandma. ” I never get time to use it so you can have it.” Lucy took the watch and put it in her felt butterfly pocket.
“I think it’s time to go Lucy loo,” said Grandma. Lucy waved at Grandma as she skipped in her house.
Ruby woke up tired. Her eyes were sore, covered in crust. Another day loomed ahead, she reached out to her bedside, and checked her pocket watch. 7:30 bang on. Ruby got up, dressed, had breakfast(marmite on toast), poured herself tea from the teapot and set off for work in her brand new ford fiesta.
Ruby felt awful. However she promised herself she would feel much better, after a warm friendly beam, from Mrs Gittens. The new secretary. Mrs Gittens, had a pet as well. Og was his name. Although Ruby wasn’t exactly sure a frog should be kept as a pet.

Some money came in the post and she gave it to Charlie to pay for the clock.she told him to keep the rest because she needed it fast.this was because here mum was coming out of hospital soon.she new this because here dad had phoned and said he new all about mum and he was with her now.she told dad that she was arraigning something special.

After sally met Mr Bates, he showed her his clock room. This is where he mends things. They agreed to meet at 9 o’clock so he could assess the damage to Grandfather. When he saw the damage he was a bit unsure whether he could fix it. Also he needed paying and she didn’t have enough money to pay him. But a unusual pack full of money came so she paid him. Mum came home early but Mr Bates still managed to fix it in time. He also fixed a bit that had been broke for ever. When mum came home she threw a big party in Sally’s honour because she had been very clever and very grown up. It all turned out fine.
