Last Thursday I went to my first ever lecture about mythology. The speaker was an author called Caroline Lawrence. Caroline talked about mentors and talisman and thresholds and how she made or wrote her stories. There was a Roman mystery series, a P.K Pinkerton and a new series coming out. I won a book signed by her because I answered 4 questions correctly. The book is called The Night Raid and it's about two boys who escaped the trojan war and tried to build a new Troy. I really liked it because it will help me with my NaNoWriMo story. (I've stolen an idea) Caroline talked about the seven plot beats and her version, but instead of seven, there are twelve plot beats.
After school, on Thursdays, I do LAMDA (London, Academy, of Music, Drama and Art). I haven't been there for a long time but in my first exam, 82%. I did a poem called "The Door" by Richard Edwards. In my second exam I did a monologue called "Izzy Wizzy Get's Busy" by Simon Parker, but this time I got 96%, a school record! Read about it in the school website here
Today, I learned how how to make origami. I made a crane, a boat and a hat. The crane was the hardest, but looks the best! For some reason my hat does not fit me, so that's why I'm giving it to Zoe for her dollies (on her birthday, the boat is also for the dollies). It's very easy to make a hat, just follow the instructions below.
1. Fold the piece of paper widthwise
2. Repeat step one but with what you've got
3. Unfold once, then fold the two corners in till they meet
4. Finally, fold the rectangle underneath and repeat on the other side.
Now all you've got to do is hit the catwalk!!!!!
Another place, another pier to go to… this time in Brighton... and it is amazing!!! It's got all the normal video games, 2p slot machines and all that sortsl of stuff, but the best part was the Jetpack Joy Ride! You had to earn points to win tickets to win a prize! Sam got a lollipop and a glow stick, Zoe got a glow stick and I got an alien.
We went to the end of the pier, AND IT WAS HEAVEN! There were rollercoasters, really high rides, upside down rides and more! It was way better than our pier because it's bigger and there are lots more things to do.

There was a three day festival at Park View called Festival of Stories. There were shows, stories, art attack and lots more. AKS was part of it. We had a stall and a drama group. At the stall children got to colour in, listen to stories and eat lollipops! The drama group put on a show based on the people of Lytham's secrets. There were loads of different scenes they made from the secrets such as:
