On Monday the Seniors had a sydicate assembly. Room 9 was the class that was hosting it. Room 9 had a challenge for the class, we had to pick 3 people from each class to do the challenge. The challenge was call Juju on that beat, all the classes had a go. Afterwards we had to vote. Everyone voted and the winner were Room 12. I also think that room 12 do deserve to win because Mika's was trying his best and it was also funny.

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children

My Favourite Scene
By: Halaiano

Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children is an fantasy movie. It is about a boy who had special eyes that none of the others had, this boy could see the monsters. These types of monster were after the loops.

My favourite part in the movie was the end, when Jake and the other children went to rescue Miss Peregrine, Barron changed himself into Jake so the children would be confused. Everything about him was the same, but there was one huge difference- his special eyes that Barron never had. Jake then saw a monster behind Barron and said I have powers that you don’t have. The monster than attacked and killed  Barron then Jake shot the monster in the head with a crossbow.

It was a really interesting movie, It wasn’t my favourite movie of all time except that end part was stuck in my head, I hope they do make another sequel for me to watch.

November 5th - Which is this year falls on a Saturday - honour the failure of the November 1605 Gunpowder Plot by a gang of Roman Catholic activists led by Warwickshire-born Robert Catesby. When Protestant King James I acceded to the throne, English Catholics had hoped that the persecution they had felt for over 45 years under Queen Elizabeth I would finally end, and they would be granted the freedom to practice their religion.
