Chelsea played Barcelona in the Campion’s League at home last Wednesday. Barcelona, despite being the better team, lost 1-0. Barcelona had far more possession of the ball, played beautiful passing football and had Lionel Messi, the world’s best footballer. But Chelsea had chosen their tactics carefully. They defended deep and withstood the Barcelona offensive. Barcelona nearly scored on several occasions, but it was Chelsea who capitalised from a rare chance, rushing forward on a counter attack to score through Didier Drogba.
The second leg of this confrontation is on Tuesday at Barcelona. Some people say the bigger ground, home support and beautiful football will favour Barcelona.

Today Year 4 took part in the first ever Skype conversation between one of our classes and a class from a different school. We were lucky enough to share our work and ask and answer questions with a Year 5 class from St Augustine’s Junior School in Worksop, Nottingham. We have both done rainforest work so we discussed our knowledge and compared ideas. We also had time to ask each other about each school. It was an amazing experience and one we hope to be repeating across school soon. To be able to have a video-conference live with another class was a wonderful privilege from which we all gained tremendously.
Here is a wordle of our serial story in Year 4. All the posts so far have been put in and the more often a word appears, the bigger it is. What interesting vocabulary can you find that we have used so far?
Martin slowly opened his eyes not knowing where he was. The pirates that were once in the distance were now surrounding Martin. The Californians were nowhere to be seen. Martin pretended to still be asleep. His heart was pumping so fast he thought it was about to pop out of his chest. The pirates seemed to be arguing among themselves. Martin saw an opportunity so he ran as fast as his legs could carrie him into the gloomy forest.
