Why you shouldn’t cut down trees!

I am going to tell you why you shouldn’t cut trees because people are cutting down too many trees!

Firstly, cutting down trees is bad. Also if you cut down trees, there will be bad air because inside them there are carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide and other gases are taken by the trees and if it mixes with the good air, it will become bad for the people. Trees also release oxygen and we need oxygen to breathe in. Secondly, the air is going to be dirty and the environment is going to be worse and the water will be mixed up with the dirty air. Also many animals will become extinct because they need the trees to survive.

You can also use trees to climb and GoApe!

Everyone  will get ill and global warming will happen, then many people might die. I predict that maybe they have cut over 1,500 trees or may be more. We need your help to save the environment  so everything will be back to normal. And I mean it, please can you help us!

If you help us you will  be able to breath properly and you won’t get ill. If you don’t want to die, don’t cut trees! However, global warming makes you very hot  and you want to get  hot and sweaty every day, do you?

Finally, if we can have our environment nice to breath in, we will be able to breathe in good air and  we will be able to stay  healthy because there will be no bad air. Search more on google why you shouldn’t cut down trees.

Preparing for SATs!

Hello!

I am going to talk about my time at Year 6 and preparation for SATs. I have been getting a lot of homework keeping me very busy. Subjects that I will have to study hard are English [reading & writing], grammar, punctuation & spellings, and maths. My favourite subject has actually become arithmetic as I didn’t like maths before! I am still better at English though (I think).

If you want to do well in SATs you need to do bit of revising and you need to make sure you finish your homework regularly. (I don’t think your teacher would be too happy if you didn’t do any of your homework!) In the Easter holidays, just a few weeks before the SATs most schools have Easter booster. All the teachers from Year 6 come and help us with the things we are struggling on and what we need to get good at while we are on our way to doing the SATs. The teachers told me it’s a very fun few sessions and every year everyone actually loves it. I can see why as only the Year 6 have the entire playground to themselves and that is good news for people who like playing football and having more space for games because normally everyone has to  share the playground!

Anyway, you will need to get organised and get good at the subjects you are doing. The way to do this is to make sure you listen to what your teacher says and use all the time you have. It’s not just about the marks you get but it’s also about what you have learnt at school and how you have improved from when you did the SATs in Year 2. It would also prepare you for secondary school where things will be a lot harder and you may need to know the things that you will have learnt for the SATs. Like when you are doing a maths problem and you have to add a few numbers up to do the question. In arithmetic, it makes you practice a lot on adding and subtracting.

Back to getting organised. Don’t leave your homework lying around your room and make sure you have a timetable so you can get it done. I normally keep everything either in my bag or in a box where I have a few extra things I will need to get me a few marks up. The other thing to do is to do a little bit of each subject everyday rather than loading it all on yourself in one go. For example, do a bit of reading, a bit of grammar and a bit of maths!

After all this, you do get a big, long break. It would be nearly the summer holidays and we would be taking down the things on the walls and going out to parks and there is of course the school residential to look forward to!

Yes, year 6 is is a lot about exams but it’s about having fun and making the most of your primary school. Go on, have fun and work hard!2018-08-11 19.11.12.jpg

About the Avengers

There are many avengers and some are called Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Antman and the Wasp. Also there is Thor and Captain America. The marvel comics have the avengers in them and they are superheroes. I am writing about this blog  because I love avengers.

Iron Man

Iron Man is an American and he is very rich. He is also called Tony Stark. He was kidnapped and had a chest injury. He didn’t build a weapon and he built a powered suit of armour to save his life. Did you know Iron Man has two hearts?

Captain America

Captain America is actually the man called Steve Rogers, a skinny and weak man. But he took a  serum in a machine so he could make America win world war II. Captain Rogers became Captain America after that. He has a shield so he could block and defend.

Conclusion

Avengers try to fight powerful enemies. Some of the enemies’ names are Thanos and Red Skull. If you search for more information about avengers you will have a lot of fun.

I Have a Dream

This is my dream speech for the future.

I have a dream one day different people around the world will have oak trees in their gardens reminding them of their strong bonds of brotherhood.

I have a dream for countries and cities to smell of flowers and not. of tobacco, petrol and gas.

I have a dream that every citizen will play the drums in tune and respect each other’s rights.

I have a dream for children and adults alike to experience the taste of a fresh and juicy apple so that no one gets hungry.

I have a dream that materials of clothing and blankets will be soft and comfortable for every person who is homeless.

Exploring King Richard III

20181230_131924
I am pretending to dig using a mini spade like an archaeologist

During the Christmas holiday, I travelled with my family to Leicester and visited King Richard III Centre. We travelled by car and we went on the motor way. On the way, we got off at a  service station and we had breakfast.

When we got to Leicester, we saw lots of shops near the centre. It took 2 hours to get to Leicester and I felt very cold when we got there.

King Rickard III was the king of England from 1483 to 1485. The bit that was really interesting was that he had a really big family as he had 13 brothers and sisters. He was buried in a church and archaeologists dug him up and found him after 500 years! He also died in a battle in 1485 fighting King Henry VII.

I know other facts, so if you want to know more about King Richard III, please ask me.

Speak to the world!

1024814-simpsons-creator-matt-groening-sued-domestic-lawsuitHello again!

I’m back with another blog for you to enjoy and possibly encourage you to do more of and take to the next level. I’m going to write about my first day at a few debating lessons I had. If you have read any of my other blogs, I said in one of them that I would come back to talking about my debating classes and I always keep a promise. Okay! Now I will share with you my first day at my debating lessons.

My Recount of My Debating Lessons

In October, I started going to debating classes. I had only four of them and they are still going on now. If you continue to read, I will share a few basic tips that I learnt in my time there and what I experienced on my first day.

On my first day, I was very nearly late due to transport closure and ghastly weather. It was raining cats and dogs which slowed my brother, my mum and my dad down. We were aiming to go by train but because it was closed, we had to go by bus and then train. Eventually, I arrived at South Kensington and the last thing that I had to do was a rather long walk to Imperial College, part of the University of London. I am told, it is one of the top universities in London! As it is in the city area, it was a busy place to be rushing to a place we had never been to and finding the place was very tricky because Imperial is very big and has lots of parts to it (called campuses I think).

In the end, I got there at just the right time and had settled myself down before the teacher had spoken to the whole class. Hardly anybody knew who was who, so as any class would do, we had to all introduce ourselves. We were all given sheets of paper to write a few things about ourselves. After a few minutes of doing that, we all had to say it out to the 14 -15 children in the class. I shared my name, my favourite food and that I am a scout.

Each Saturday I went, we had a different teacher. The first one I had was called Doctor B. McDonald. I forgot what his first name is but I know that it begins with the letter ‘B’. The first part was a bit of role play where Dr. McDonald and another volunteer pretended they were in a lift. We talked about different feelings and personal space and also how the other person may not want to speak to you but how facial expressions can express those different feelings. We were then told to draw different faces and write down the feelings of them beneath. This second part had a bit more writing involved. We picked a topic [I chose the environment] and wrote about how either it is a problem or if it should be banned. I said that the environment is not being looked after properly and is causing a problem to society and the wildlife (and to the world as a whole). I felt that this was a good topic because there is a lot to talk about and many points can be made, disagreed about and agreed about. To give us a bit of a boost, we read the ‘I Have a Dream’ speech by Martin Luther King to write our own speeches. We had to include a few things that he used and add it to our speech. With that, my first day was done. You can read some of my debating tips below!

I hope you enjoyed that and if you want anymore, be sure to write a comment below. Also, if you have any other ideas for me to write about include that too.

TIPS:

  • Speak as clearly and loudly as you can
  • Be sure to state your point clearly
  • Make it sound persuasive
  • Go with a positive attitude
  • Don’t make it sound boring.
  • Make it sound strong and as though you really believe your point should be heard.

[If you want, to keep the audience engaged, include a funny bit or two.]

 

 

 

 

 

Dinosaurs and why I like them and facts about them

I’m writing this blog because I am interested in dinosaurs. I learnt about dinosaurs at the natural history museum, school and the books I have at home. I was first interested in dinosaurs when I was  about  two. Dinosaurs lived 165 million years ago and they died because meteorites fell on the earth and it blocked the sun and the dinosaurs ate plants that were bad. This blog is about three dinosaurs that are my favourite.

I  like Allosaurus  because  they are scary and I  like scary dinosaurs. A fact is  that  Allosaurus is a meat-eater. It sometimes  tries to scare off other Allosauruses.

Now I  am going  to  move  on  to   Oviraptors . I like Oviraptors  because they’re  cheeky   and I  am cheeky!  A fact  is that Oviraptors liked to steal other dinosaur eggs. Did  you know that  a person  is  bigger than an Oviraptor?

Next I am  going to move on to Gigantoraptors. I like Gigantoraptors  because  I  like  big dinosaurs and Gigantoraptors are

big. A fact about Gigantoraptors  is  that  they stay on  their eggs for 80 days and a person can’t stay on there for that long. My next  fact is that Gigantoraptor is  very very big.

I hope you liked my blog about dinosaurs. Please ask me any questions about them and I will let you know more facts.
