In the afternoon we went to a museum called Eden Camp, which was a prisoner of war camp in World War II. There were 29 huts that had different subjects to do with the war,such as: The Blitz, The chapel Remembrance, The Street Shops and The Planes. It was a fun and interesting experience. Most people would like to go again to the play park. By Megan and Beth

A Tale of Smuggling by Katie, Bradley and Grady

One dark and gloomy night a loud bell was heard ringing...

A small percentage of towns folk were getting ready to greet the smugglers bringing in lace, brandy, velvet and tobacco. Wearing their warm, dark heavy cloaks so that they were hidden from the preventers, they creep silently through the narrow, shadowy lanes towards the sea. Their bright eyes glimmering in the moonlight.

As the younger children sleep peacefully under their blankets, their older siblings peep out to catch a glimpse of their fathers sneaking towards the mysterious ship. As the strong men unpack the ship they see a secretive figure patrolling the streets.

The lookout boy signals with a flashlight to scatter and all the men crawl through the shallow passage ways and they acted as if nothing had happened.

By early morning ladies were sneakily hiding the goods under their aprons into small bags and taking them back to their houses to use later. Hoping the tobacco and brandy will last till next time the smugglers come to the village, the ladies walk to the market to sell the velvet and lace. Being careful to hide their goods away so the Snives don't see.
