A Friday Night Scare
Thank you Jarrett for sending in your horror story, I really enjoyed reading it but opted against reading it to my boys.
Walking the dog. Such a simple task. Why is it never that easy? It's been a couple days since...it...happened. I don't exactly know what 'it' is yet, but i'll tell you what I remember. I was assigned the job of walking our family dog called Dexter. The walk seemed normal to begin with. As usual, I met Rich as he was going for his daily jog, the same in-tune chirp of the birds. I don't know why, but where I would usually turn left, I went right. I think it was because because I thought Dexter would appreciate something different. Maybe it was because I wanted to see something different. Either way, I went right. The warm and soothing nature of the forest had an eerie and unfamiliar feel to it. Yet, despite this, I continued on my walk. My foot must have got caught on a log or tree stump because my body got thrown forward and I hit the floor with a thump. I immediately got up and walked back home with Dexter and a headache. Rich ran by but something about him was different. I couldn't put a finger on what was different, but something was. Maybe he looked older? I couldn't tell. I tried to wave to him but he completely ignored me. At the time I thought he hadn't seen me. Maybe he had headphones in? I was nearing my house when a strong, smokey smell overcame my nostrils. I reached my house and everyone was outside, them too looking slightly off. It was only a minor difference, nothing big, but It was easily noticeable. I called out to my dad to ask him if he could have a look at me as maybe -I thought- I had hit my head on a stone when i'd tripped over. I got no reply. This time, I shouted a bit louder, yet I still got no reply. I made my way over to him and tried to tap him on the shoulder. My hand. It went through his shoulder. Through. His. Shoulder. My hand went through the bone in his shoulder. He didn't even flinch. He didn't even feel anything. Not visibly anyway. I attempted to go inside the house but, once again, my hand went through the door. No one could see me, hear me, feel me, I wasn't there. I tried to close my eyes and I prayed i'd wake up in my bed, and this was all a dream. Yet, when I opened my eyes, I was still where I was when I closed my eyes. I shouted for hours on end but no one could hear me.... I was dead to everyone. I wasn't there to everyone. Everyone but myself.

This weeks AR Shout Outs
As usual I (Mrs Bennett) have been looking closely at your Accelerated Reader progress and am pleased to say that there are a few year 7 children who are still eagerly reading and taking their quizzes. Therefore, this weeks shout outs go to those who have taken a quiz in the last week.
I know it can be difficult to motivate ourselves to keep working at home but as I said last week, reading can provide you with a time to sit quietly and relax. Your books can take you anywhere in the world, where anything is possible and dreams are endless. So pick up your book and have some you time!
Here are my special mentions this week:
Chloe Lostitch (an amazing 4 books)
Well done all, please do your obligatory living room dance!
Finally, I feel I must mention that two of those amazing individuals are also from the best class in the school!
Lets hope I can be mentioning some more amazing year 7's next week.
Busy Bank Holidays and Computer filled Mondays
It's been brilliant to see all your photos about VE day celebrations coming in and both my boys and I loved the films that arrived in our inbox today. I still think Alfie and Jacob are confused over Mr Meads and Margaret!
