My ending

Carly and Frank were out of breath because they had run as if their lives depended on it. Breathing heavily Carly opened the gate with the golden key. The Sniffalopodus was coming behind them, he was sniffing them out. As fast as they could they ran to the magic rose bush and Carly carefully plucked 3 petals from the flower, it was extremely powerful and you only needed a few petals for the spell. She screwed the petals up into a ball and just as the potion says a pink dust began to form, dancing in the air. Using all of her strength she threw the pink dust cloud towards the monster. POOF! That was it, he was gone. Frank and Carly hugged each other, they were both really happy. However, it could only last a minute, Frank’s green diamond began to glow, it was time for him to return to planet Xon4. The pair promised to be friends forever and Carly waved until she could no longer see him but at least they would always have their night of adventures.

Arts and Crafts  

May Day was once a holiday on May 1st, as a spring festival originating in ancient times.

In 1978, the Government passed a law for the May Day bank holiday to be on the first Monday in May. But last year they decided to change it so this year the May Day bank holiday is being moved to a Friday instead. It will be on Friday, May 8 (today). That’s because today is also the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, we call this VE (Victory of Europe) day.

Today for your arts and crafts you can choose one of the following crafts below.

To celebrate spring coming:


To remember the end of the second world war:
