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 !

 

World Storytelling Day (plus a splendid short story from Apolline)

Here’s a lovely short video to celebrate World Storytelling Day. Thanks Ms Palacios, nice editing skills!

Also,  here’s Apolline’s entry to a 100 word competition. Well done Apolline. We’ll have to record your 500 word challenge story too!

Do any of you have a short story that you’d like to share with us all?

Feel Good Fri-yay!

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

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.

Ho Ho Ho!!! Christmas Advertisements

Hi all,

It seems to be a tradition now to create lovely adverts at Christmas time in the UK. We’ve posted lots previously, but  totally missed the one starring Kevin the carrot last year. So, here’s last years and this years (plus a few more). Please comment on what you like about them, how you think the music adds to the impact, how it makes you feel or any other positive thoughts you have about Christmas! Ho Ho Ho!

 

Here’s one that actually isn’t the official advert – but I find it emotive and heart warming…

 

 

Christmas is Coming!!!!

Here are the Reps decorating the Christmas tree and some of the ‘Guinea Gang’ getting festive with Bubble and Squeak. Looks like fun!

We are really looking forward to seeing our family and friends  at Christmas. What are you looking forward to at Christmas?

What is Respect?

Our focus on having a positive attitude towards life  has gone wonderfully well and almost everyone now seems to be very positive, polite and are filling buckets to the brim!

So, now we are moving on to our second core value to focus on –  Respect.

But what is it? Respect is how you feel about someone and how you treat someone.
In the ‘Getting On and Falling Out’ SEAL assembly we reflected on how we can fill bukcets by showing respect to:
  • our friends
  • our parents
  • our teachers
  • our school
  • ourself

Please share your ideas and let’s see how many we get!  You can choose one or all five.

More fun for our Y4 pupils!

It’s been a busy, exciting and fun first day.
