I could do Gangnam style from the age of one,

Cooler than cool,

Hotter than a minion from Despicable Me.

The Six Worst Excuses in the World by Fin

1 The dog ate it.

2. I dropped it in the dog bowl and the dog ate it.

3. I dropped it and unfortunately it landed on explosives and an extremely big explosion happened and the dog ate it.

4. Zeus loved my brilliant homework and boomed as loud as a billion opera singers singing as loud as they can “I want that amazing homework”, but I fought off the god and was too strong for him, but then the most awful thing happened…. the dog ate it.

5 The world set on fire and I grabbed my amazing homework to try and save it, but an elephant as big as my dad stepped on me, but I kept the homework safe, but then a wave of black ink came out of nowhere. I swam through through the ink holding the homework above my head, but then a bloated dog ate it and an even more bloated dog ate that dog, and an hugely overweight dog ate that one, then that dog had a heart attack and died and my dog drank the ink, ate the elephant, the hugely overweight dog and my homework.

6 I would give my teacher a banana instead. Actually that one works rather well.Image

Some letters about School Uniform

School uniform is something that divides opinion. Before Mounts went off to Croft Farm we wrote a letter to the incoming Headteacher to express our opinions and persuade her that the school uniform should be kept or scrapped:

Fagin’s Den by Fin W.

oliver denThe second Oliver stepped into the den he heard the scuttling of rats jumping out of the way. Next the strong smell of tobacco and burnt sausages overwhelmed him. Handkerchiefs everywhere hanging up, on the table and strewn across the floor. About ten boys sitting at the table all smoking and drinking gin, they were playing some card game. The next thing Oliver noticed was a big presence sitting front of the fire cooking sausage after sausage. The little light the fire was giving was blocked by the man in front of the fire. The boys were laughing together joking about. Everything was rotten. The bricks, the wooden floor creaked under his weight.



Well done to Fin W and Evie from Mounts together with Freddie and Alex from Moneybury, who won their heat of the Hertfordshire Year 5 Maths Challenge against a range of schools from across the Hemel and Rickmansworth areas.

We hope that they will now go forward to represent the school in the County finals in June.

Also well done to Skye who took part in a Judo competition at the weekend and was awarded a bronze medal, even though she was taking on opponents more than one and a half times her own weight.

Cameron managed to win an informal coin tossing prediction competition in Mounts today, not once but twice. To do this, he correctly predicted the toss of a coin on at least twelve occasions in a row. Does anyone know how likely or unlikely this feat is?
