Are You Up For The Kindness Challenge?

Welcome Back and Happy Roald Dahl Day!

Hi everyone,

I hope you’ve had a fantastic holiday! We are all very excited to see you all back at school and hope that you are all full of enthusiasm for the new school year.

Today, as you probably know, is Roald Dahl Day, so please let us know what your favourite Roald Dahl book is and why. I think mine is probably Charlie and the Chocolate Factory because it is full of humour, has a sprinkling of danger, lots of suspense and of course is a fabulously constructed story. I love both the movies that have been made too, however, I have a particular fondness for the old one due to watching it as a child.

So, which Roald Dahl book do you think is a real page-turner and you would highly recommend it to someone in your year group?

Happy blogging and remember to read the blog rules before writing a comment.

 

 

World Environment Day! What Can You Do?

Happy World Environment Day!
Today is World Environment Day, which is a day set up by the United Nations to raise awareness and encourage people to protect the planet. This year it is focusing on beating plastic pollution.
Plastic pollution is destorying our planet and the problem is at crisis point.
* 8 million tonnes of plastic ends up in the ocean every year
* That is enough plastic to circle the Earth 4 times every single year
* Plastic kills 1.5 million marine animals and birds every year
* By 2050 they have predicted there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by weight
* Around the world 1 million plastic bottles are bought every minute
* 5 trillion plastic bags are sold worldwide every year
* 50% of plastic produced is only used once and then thrown away
With these daunting facts, its time to take action.
IF YOU CAN’T REUSE IT, REFUSE IT!!
The students in KS2 have been taking action by not bringing in plastic in their snacks today. We have also set up a competition whereby the children will be noting down each time they refuse single-use plastic and then the child that has refused the most plastic by 18th June will win a prize in the end of year assembly.
Now it’s time to do your bit. Help save the planet and refuse single-use plastic!

Visit a Library Week – Easter Activity

Teachers, generally, absolutely love wandering around a library that is  full to the brim with a wonderful array of books… Just imagine the history, facts, maps, ancient documents, stories, tales of  happiness and sadness… contained within the thousands upon thousands of books, carefully contained and looked after,  within the walls of the library…

Well, a little challenge for you is to go into a library – have a walk around, look through some books, even become a member.  It’s my challenge too, as I’m ashamed to say  I’ve never been into the main library in Valencia city!

I am definitely going to the main library in the centre of the city (click here for link), but you could go to any library – there may even be a local one near to where you live…

Explore, investigate, read, enjoy the surroundings – AND then take a  selfie or photo of you doing something in the library! Please  print them out if you want to add them to our display.

Have a fabulous holiday !

What is something NICE that you have done for someone this week?

Top 2 Tuesday!

Write your top 2 favourite things about school so far this year.

Congratulations Carlos!!!

Well done Carlos Y6C!!! Amazingly, he won a competition, for Valencian pilota, that included participants from the whole of the Valencian community! He must be so proud. I would imagine that he has had to show lots of perseverance (the value on the wall to the right of him) to achieve this.

Remember, if you have any achievements that you would like to share with us, please let us know and we can show how wonderful you have been on the blog.

Happy New Year!
