Opening The Door To The City Of Gold I
He slowly walked up the light blue concrete stairs. It felt like there were endless stairs. As Esteban walked up the stairs, his hands were slightly shaking. As he scrunched his hands up, he thought to himself ‘shall I do this?’
Esteban took his medallion off and stopped to take a breath. ‘This is it,’ he thought. Esteban looked at it one last time. It felt heavy and it was detailed, carved with ancient symbols.
“Come on Zia,” Esteban whispered with excitement.
“Let’s do this,” Zia said in a calm voice.
“What do you think will be behind the door?” said Zia with excitement.
“The city of gold of course,” Esteban replied.
Esteban and Zia put their medallions into the door. As they did, the door started to glow. The bottom of the door was pink and as they both stepped back, the middle of the door turned gold. Esteban’s eyes twitched as the door opened. It was like he was paralysed. It was like Esteban was in a dream. The doors finally opened.
At first it looked as if a swarm of wasps was going past. As they looked again, the city of gold was revealed.
“Oh, how beautiful,” Zia exclaimed.
“The city of gold! It’s actually real!” replied Esteban.
“My father was right. It’s still here,” exclaimed the priest.

The Iron Man reading display
Where did it come from? Nobody knows. How was it made? Nobody knows.
In the first half of the Autumn term, 5G read (and loved) ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes. This display was made from start to finish in just one hour, with everyone in the class doing a different job.
George’s Marvellous Medicine reading display
Have you ever started reading and not been able to stop? 5G hadn’t planned to do an investigation of this book: Mr Gardner had just intended to share the first few pages of one of his favourite stories. The class enjoyed it so much that they demanded to read the whole book! They then challenged themselves to create a reading display in even less time than their previous one. This display was made from start to finish in 45 minutes!
