As it is digital learning day today, we’ve decided to have competition. It can be absolutely anything – a keynote, Scratch game, iMovie, PowerPoint, Prezi… anything. And what’s more, it can be about anything you want; technology, dogs, space, football, ballet… anything. The due date will be after Easter and there will be a small prize. Good luck!!!
Why not curl up with a lovely book over the long Christmas holidays? In my opinion, it’s the best way to improve your English and have fun at the same time!
Ms Sayce is going to read The Night Before the Night Before Christmas (by Kes Grey) with her young son and Ms Stenhouse is going to read The Constant Princess by Philippa Gregory (however this isn’t a children’s book). I’m not sure what to read, so please give me some suggestions.
Here is a list of recommended festive books.
Please tell us about what you read and why you liked it!
Ho, ho, ho!!! Here are our wonderful Y6 Reps, who helped us decorate the tree. Some of them have made decorations for the top (an angel, Santa, star… anything Christmassy), so why don’t you? We are trying to re-use materials to be eco-friendly, so get your thinking caps on and make a decoration.
Bring it to us in our office and the best ones will be put onto the tree (and get a purple form!)
Also, please tell us about what you are looking forward to most around Christmas time. And remember, it’s not just about receiving presents… For example, I’m really looking forward to spending lots of time with my family and friends in England, as I don’t get to see them as often as I would like.
Hi, can you name the languages below? Please post your answers and good luck. Just write them in the same order.
Happy World Hello Day – Hello, Hola, привет, Bonjour, 你好, Hallo, مرحبا, Γεια σας, Helló, Dia Duit, Ciao, もしもし, cześć, Olá, Helo

So, how are you getting on with the challenge? Let us know what you have done and what positive effects it has had.
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.
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 !
