Dear Mrs Bancroft,

We’re all sad to see you go because of all the things you’ve done. We all hope you have had a great three years and all the people of Constantine have been grateful to have you and we are sad to see you go.

We can remember when you took us to see Frozen and when we entered in the best decorated Christmas tree at Princess Pavillions.

Here is an acrostic poem I wrote for you:




Best head mistress,

Always kind to the people of Constantine school,

Nice to the people of Constantine,

Creative Curriculum Author

Responsible making sure everyone is safe.




Please come and visit us all at Constantine school.

Your sincrely,


Skellig-a film review by Josh

Posted in Writing we do at school


The film is about a boy, Michael, who has to move house and his mum is pregnant. He finds an old man who is waiting to die living in Michael’s garden shed. His baby sister is born prematurely so she has to keep going in to the hospital. He meets a girl called Mina who doesn’t go to school but is taught by her mum. After a while Michael shows Mina Skellig. Michael’s dad found out that Skellig was in the shed so he burns it and Michael has to help Skellig escape. Mina helps Michael take Skellig to an abandoned tower.

This story is about love, friendship, healing and understanding.

I would recommend it for children 9 and above [PG].

I feel like the rating should be for 8 – 10 year olds because at the end we didn’t get to see Skellig fly off and there was some bad language.
