Henry VIII

Prince Henry

Henry Tudor, named after his father, Henry VII, was born by Elizabeth of York June 28, 1491 in Greenwich Palace. Since he was the second son, and not expected to become king, we know little of his childhood until the death of his older brother Arthur, Prince of Wales. We know that Henry attended the wedding celebrations of Arthur and his bride, Catherine of Aragon, in November 1501 when he was 10 years old.

Shortly after the wedding, Arthur and Catherine went to live in Wales, as was tradition for the heir to the throne. But, four months after the marriage began, it ended, with Arthur’s death.

Henry built Hampton Court Palace,

Alien strike

By Alex                  

On Monday the 11th October 2010 7:30 pm aliens landed at Wigan st Andrews school football Pitch. The Caretaker of the school said to the Y4 Teacher “you need to go home” So Mr Sharkey went to the junior playground and he saw 3 Aliens… He screamed as loud as a cheater and as high as a girl. Because he screamed so loudly therefore the caretaker went out and said to Mr Sharkey what’s up and Mr Sharkey he told him about the alien and took him to the alien.

 The caretaker said there is nothing to worry about so Mr Sharkey went to his car in a rush. And then the caretaker bravely shook the aliens hand it was so slimy the caretaker went “ewe so gross “but he had to put up with it. So the aliens met the caretaker and the caretaker met the aliens they had a little talk. But soon the aliens had to go soon therefore they had to a big good bye to each other. So the aliens made there way to the spaceship it was pink and flew away and the caretaker waved a big bye.

Lego Land Discovery Centre

On a Monday morning we went to Lego land. The first thing we did was the register and the people who went were the class, me, the teachers and Mrs Marshall and y4.

 We went to Lego land in the Trafford Centre. We went to the toilets before we went in. The Trafford Centre is in Manchester. It was boring having to wait but we only had to wait for 5 or 10 minutes.

On Monday morning, my partner on the coach was Charlotte N. I was a bit happy on the coach because Charlotte and I   played M.I.High.

Finally we got in. The first thing we did was watch Professor Brick because she was the one who showed us to make brick’s with a little movie. Next we went on kingdom quest –it had guns for us to shoot things. Afterwe went to mini land. We all saw Lego Blackpool tower. There was this horse race thing race thing and I won every race that I did. Then we had dinner. After dinner we went in the 4d cinema. We watched Bob the builder. Then we went in the play area. In the play area there was this dark slide. I didn’t go down it because I’m scared of the dark. Next we went making cars or should I say transport. Last of all we did this puzzle thing.

We got there by coach. On the coach it was boring. We played a bit of I spy and a bit of guessing what is going to be there. But we didn’t get one right. I went because it was the end of year school trip. It was good.

Overall, I thought that our class trip to Lego land was fantastic. If I could choose where to go on our next school trip, I would choose Camelot because of the big rides.

Legoland

On Monday morning y3&y4 were going to Lego land at the Trafford centre in the department Barton square. We got there by coach (do not know what company) when we got to the Trafford centre car park we had a drink on the coach. After we got off the coach we walked to Lego land and we had to wait 25 minutes till we could enter Legoland. So we went to the toilet and we had to wait for a long time then we went back and y3 got in lego land first and y4 looked around the shop.

When we got inside we went upstairs we watch a video how to make lego. Then we went to Professor Brick then we all got a factory brick. Then we went on KINGDOM QUEST you had lazar guns you had to shoot aliens. Then we went into a room with dotted floor and you had to complete a puzzle. We completed it 2. Then we went to a 4d cinema it was bob the builder when it rains spray water and if it snowed it had bubbly soap.

 After we had are diner I had cheese spread on my sandwiches. After we went to a play area called Fire Academy there was a big slide right down to the bottom it was fun. Then we made Lego cars we built them, tested them and we raced them mine broke every time.

 Then we went to the toilet and when I went in the toilet the lights off and it was cool. Then we went to the shop and we were allowed to spend £5.00 I bought a police set and I got 50P. Then we sat in the corner and waited for y3&y4 to come to the corner.

 

Then we walked back to the coach and had another drink of water and then went back to school it was so boring on the coach. Finally we got back then we were back for home time at 3:15. 

  Overall I thought that our class trip to Lego land was totally awesome. If I could choose were to go for are next school trip I will choose Lego land Windsor because it has lots of rides there and it is well cool.

The Story of Bob Dickinson

Boom!  Boom! Boom! Bob Dickinson was petrified and worried as the dust settled slowly around his shaking lean body. He coughed heavily. As the smoke cleared gradually he could see his destroyed, wrecked home in his South  Manchester  street .With his emerald green eyes he looked at the smashed windows and a  pile of brick that used to be his lovely house .It was the worst moment in the 39 years of his  life . He was worried about his children. 

Bob soon found out that his children were missing so he went to the beach because it was their favourite place. He got there but it took him 2 hours. However he would do any thing to get his children back. He went back home and thought of other places to look. Bob was awake for a long time but soon he nodded of.

 The next morning Bob went to go and get this post. One envelope said “that he had to go to war” but Bob was too worried about his children so he looked for the last time. When he got their there was a message in a bottle. It said “that his children were in the war” and Bob said “I have to go into war because my children are in danger”.

 

Bob went to his mum’s house to tell her but she disagreed. Bob begged   but 2 hours later he gave up, he said “ I give up I  am  not going into war.” Bob slowly walked home .He got home and went to sleep. Bob had a nightmare but he slept through the whole thing.

His horrible nightmare was that he had gone into the war and he came back to find his children but when he got back his children were dead. He woke up and said “ That’s it I am going to war and I don’t  care if I get shot by a gun. I just want to save my children.” So he packed   his bags and left his broken house and set off to war.

Bob was so good at shooting the others. He  shot the Germans but  he was not in the right place so he travelled to France .In France  Bob killed everyone  accept  the boss who had the children so he said “ right I will fight you” .So he got all the weapons he could  find and started fighting. The boss was winning but  Bob kept on going on. Finally Bob won and freed his children and got enough money to buy a new house and Bob become a millionaire.

Bob’s War Story

Boom! Boom! Boom! Bob Dickinson was petrified and worried as the dust settled slowly around his shaking lean body. He coughed heavily. As the smoke cleared gradually he could see his destroyed, wrecked home in his south Manchester Street. With his emerald green eyes he looked at the smashed windows and pile of bricks that used to be his lovely home. It was the worst moment of the 39 years of his life, he felt heart broken. He was worried about his children and his house. 

Bob looked for his children everywhere he looked especially in the forest. After five hours of hard work he decided to stay at his mums because of his bombed house. But waiting for him at his mums was a golden envelope. The envelope said that bob had to go to war!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bob felt surprised but puzzled he was so scared he nearly fainted but luckily he didn’t. Bob got to the train station with a very teary face, he was going to war. Meanwhile Bob Dickinson’s girlfriend Mary Check was with their two children Susie and Joey Dickinson. They were on a very dirty boat. The children were terrified and heartbroken that they would never see their dad again. Suddenly a massive storm started. The waves were crushing against the boat. The boat suddenly got washed up on a German beach!!!!!!! 

Bob was now on fighting for his life and his country. His armour was heavy and he felt shattered. He suddenly spotted a very dirty beach. He took the risk and went to rest on the beach and guess who as there Mary, Susie and Joey. At first Bob thought he was seeing things but he ran over anyway. It was them!!!!!!!!!

Bob quickly took them home and then to the hospital. They suddenly woke up in their medical beds “Were are we” Joey said “ don’t worry your in the hospital” the nurse said clearly.  Luckily it wasn’t serious.

The next week they bought a house in Wales and lived happily ever after. Bob and Mary even got married!

He saw William’s face pressed against the windowsill and Bob ran in front of the train and singled it to stop. William and Penny jumped off the train and leaped in to Bob’s arms. Bob now saw their mother in the distance. They all gave each other a great big hug. But Bob and Helen did have some serious injuries. The children just needed  a few stitches.

Bob Dickinson On the Hunt

Boom! Boom! Boom! Bob Dickinson was petrified and worried as the dust settled slowly around his shaking lean body. He coughed heavily. As the smoke cleared gradually he could see his destroyed, wrecked home in . With his emerald green eyes he looked at the smashed windows and the pile of bricks that used to be his lovely home. It was the worst day of his 39 years of his life. He felt heartbroken. He was worried about his children.

 

Bob went looking for his children. First he looked on the beach but there was no sigh there.

Then he looked down the next street. Next he decided to go to his dads. Then he heard the postman say” Bob has a letter from the army”. Next he got the letter and read the letter it said “Dear Bob please join the army we don’ have many people. We only have 1ooo people”.

 

The problem: will he go to the army or will he find his children? He decided to find his children. Next he sent a letter back saying “I have lost my children. I will find them first”. Later he started looking. First he looked on the beach again but there was no sigh there but then he saw something in the water. He sprinted to it. It was a bottle with a message. It said “Bob Dickinson’s children are in my house. My house is 41 Dusty Ave Springfield Wigan England.

 

The problem! The problem! It has been solved. All I have to do now is find her. Then he ran as fast as he could to find  the person. Two hours later he found the house and knocked on the door. No one awserd so he knocked again. This time someone awserd. It was a girl. As soon as they looked into each others eyes they where in love.

The next day they went to dinner together. She said her name was Ava. He didn’t notice that he was in Greater Manchester and the slightly bombed café was called Home Sweet Home. The next day he asked her “will you marry me?” she whispered “yes” and 1hour later he yelled “ where are the children?” she replied “ holiday in south Africa” he said “ holiday in south Africa” he said “thank you for telling”. He said “have this gas mask” “and will you help me build my home back” and she yelled “yes”. Later that day there children came home and they were found and they got married.

 Many weeks later they had a baby and they named the baby Emily Dickinson. The day after that the house was back to normal and they moved out to Wales because it was safe and sound there. They never had a problem again apart from the children falling out.
