writing challenge spring

There it was, a tiny, feathered robin darting through the gloomy, isolated forest. He flew across the shiny blue and hazy sky in a brown and red blur. The silence lingering in the freezing, winter air scared him. He went past many white and black, frozen, bare trees as he raced through the uninhabited, snowy forest. He was relieved when he got out of the horrific, crooked forest and glided on through the glistening, dim sky. Not long after, it suddenly started precipitating. He felt petrified. He quickly dashed to shelter under an alone, towering tree.

Star blogger challenge by Kayleb and Peter

Once upon a time there was a brave, little robin set out on phenomenal adventure to try and find his way home. Traveling he flew through a deep dark  forest using only his smell and sound to get through it. He zoomed through pouring rain and devilish thunder and lightning only escaping by an inch. He traversed mountains but then he realised that he wasn’t getting anywhere instead he thought he was only getting more and more far away from the place that he remembered. Instead he looked at all bird nests to try and find his own but he couldn’t he decided that it probably wasn’t even in the country he was in.

Coming Home

Once upon a time, there was a tiny robin. He decided to go to the forest to see if any of his friends were there. He went out and got lost and slightly perplexed. But of course, he didn’t want to stay lost forever. So he kept flying around the area. Only about 5 minutes later it started to rain. The poor robin quickly ran to get under some shelter. He started to sob because he only wanted to have fun with his friends. He thought to himself ‘Things will get better I just know it’. But little did he know lighting was about to occur. After about 30 minutes lightning struck. The lightning was a brazen, ruthless and extraordinary sight. Then like lightning wasn’t enough! Guess what happened?! Thunder came, loader than a roar of a dinosaur. The robin fell asleep from all the weeping. When he woke up he saw snow, white as a feather. He told himself ‘Must have been snowing last night’. It was extremely cold, he shivered. But he wanted to get home so he set back into the wilderness again. Soon he came across a frozen lake clear as a diamond, you could hardly tell the river was frozen! He followed the frosted river until he came across Mount Saint Elias, a real mountain. His beak opened wide ‘HOW AM I GOING TO FLY OVER THAT THING?!?!’ he wondered. He took a deep puff and closed his eyes ‘I can do this!!’ he said determinedly. He flew up and up in about 3 hours. It got dark and dim so he found a ledge and spent the night there and trust me it was not fun he probably fell off a few times in the middle of the night. In the morning, he was still sleepy, exhausted and hungry but the sooner he gets home the sooner he will eat, or have a feast. He was really sad because he was lost, cold and didn’t have a companion to cheer him by his side. But he still kept flying up and up he went. But the higher he got colder and colder he felt! Eventually, he got to the top but his feathers were as cold as an iceberg. The sun was setting and he was at the tippy top of Mount Saint Elias. From not eating, drinking and coldness he fell asleep and fell down of the mountain. A few seconds later, he was already near the bottom but thankfully he woke up and flapped his wings to fly. ”Phew, that was close!”  he said to himself. But in disbelieve, he saw the region he lived on. He flew as fast as a cheetah, as fast as a Ferrari, as fast as Usain Bolt! But something stopped him in his tracks. There were a whole 2 miles of flying overseas and at this point, the robin just went to sleep. But he was awoken by the splash of water on him. “WHAT IN THE NATIONS IS THIS!! Those waves are angry! How am I going to fly all the way back to my house in this?!*sighs* There’s nothing I can do I just have to get going.” he talked to himself. About 10 minutes later things were going pretty well until….*Splash* The water took him down. His parents taught him how to swim a few weeks ago but still, he wasn’t the best at it. He swam to the surface and took deep breathes over and over again the waves would take him down but he would come up and breathe. Then the heavy waves stopped and it was his only chance to get back up into the sky. He tried so hard but he fainted luckily someone had cached him! Guess who it was it was his dad that came to the rescue! When the robin gained consciousness he realized he was in a familiar area and he saw two familiar faces. Sobbing the robin said, “Mum dad it’s you it’s really you!I’m so, so, so sorry I didn’t mean to cause trouble!”. “Oh, it’s alright because you’re safe now.” said the parents together And they lived happily ever after THE END.

Ibrahim Vepari star blogger challenge Y5

As the Robin was flying, he thought of turning back from his journey of a lifetime. He flew from the miserable, gloomy sea, which never calmed down from crashing waves going on to the shore. Then the Robin came to the mountains. He flew straight through it because there was nothing to see. He came to the Frozen wastes. He saw a mini tree but was covered by darkness from the snow capped mountain above. He approached it. Very careful he said “Hi my name is Robin.” The creature replied “Hi. I’m a puffin. What you doing in a cold environment.”He creeped out of the tree and shown the Robin his charming identity. The bird asked “Can you come with me on my journey back to home.”I’m sorry but I cant. I have to stay here,”The puffin said sadly. The Robin carried on and saw no light at all. A few minutes later he saw a minute piece of light. He was amazed. In excitement he carried on with joy. He came to his homeland. He found a place to rest. He thought to himself “This is the best day if my life.”

Year 6’s Crucial Crew Trip!

Today at 9:00AM,year 6 left St Thomas. We sat on a huge bus 🚌 and began our journey to Crucial Crew!

 

So the first lesson of my group was we learnt the lesson was called Travel safe and it was how to deal with CPR. We were split into two groups and we had to do the CPR movements by putting our partner into a CPR position how that worked was you needed to put your  hand under your cheek and put your arm that’s farthest  away from and put it on your chest.

The second lesson was called how to be safe online basically personality The second lesson was called how to be safe online basically (Don’t share personal information online.) We had some questions and most of the time everyone got them right HORRAY😃!!!

After we went into a very dark room and the lesson was called how to be safe on roads basically road safety.So it was quite scary there was two guys dead and they  were not dead in real life it there were  just pretending to be dead.Suddenly  one of the guys woke up and he said ROOR And everyone almost had a heart attack because that was the scariest  of them all. We all got scared and ran away but I think it was the right decision to do because then we don’t ever get scared in our lives again.

The next one was how to be safe in the ocean if your swimming. So they told us we need to be respectful for the people who are swimming in the ocean and people don’t get canoes or  surfboards there. 

The next one was a bus driver he told us that every single day in Britain we have bus windows shattered and tram windows shattered.

Finally there  was a police officer 👮‍♂️ he told us that there was a boy called Tom he was  out with his friend trespassing a railway track 🛤 and Tom went on a old train that was stood there for ages and he touched the power cards that did 25000 volts to him you never survive from that but he survived from his luck!

 

So that was it for the year 6 Crucial Crew trip hope you guys liked it!!!😊

Why do oceans matter????

Oceans matter because many medical treatments have been developed from the recourses that have been found in the sea. These have been used to treat asthma, arthritis and several types of cancer. Around the world approximately 1 billion people rely on fish and sea for their main source of protein. Over 7 million people depend on fishing for their livelihoods. The ocean only doesn’t matter to us it also matters to sea life because it is their home/habitat. It is useful for transport from one place to another.

Save our world

WE are very bad at plastic because we just throw it out but what can we do, we can put it in the recycle bin .I have an idea we can REDUCE REUSE AND RECYCLE . That will help, yes, come on friends lets do it. Do you know that we eat 2.5 billion pounds of fish in the UK? by owais, ismail and wamiq

The importance of the oceans by Kayleb

The oceans are very important over 700,000,000 people rely on fish as their main source of protein and 90 per cent of all trade between countries happens on the ocean. You probably don’t want me to tell you all the facts but you probably want me to tell you how you can help. You can help by reducing reusing and recycling this means you should cut down the amount of plastic, reusing plastic when you can and recycling when you can. If we continue to throw away as much plastic as we do now then by 2050 there will be as much plastic in the earth as there are fish.

Ocean facts

Oceans cover  71% of our planets surface and make up 95% of all the space available to life.

Tiny organisms, called planktons produce around 50% of the oxygen that we breathe.

We are producing around 20% times more plastic than we did 50 years ago and how much of this ends up in the sea.

This amount of litter on Britain sea floor has increased by 200since 1992 and nearly 80% of this is plastic.

Most of our waste eventually reaches the sea.

According to research, microplastics  are found in up to 80% of mussels taken from British beaches.

In the UK, we eat £4.5 billion worth of seafood each year.

” WHAT HAPPENED!?!?”

Hello everyone my name is Kia and here is my life. It all started February 13th 1962 evening. There was a murderer on the run. No one dared to step out of their houses. But I needed food or I would die from starvation. So I ran to the shops and I was just about to step out when *splat* the killer stabbed me in the leg. I could hear sirens. It all went dark and when I woke up there was a cop. He asked what happened. *10 mins later* He was angry but little did he no I was mute and paralyzed. Then he screamed….

“WHAT HAPPENED!?!?”

The End!

“loser”

Once upon a time in a far away Kingdom called Keewoo. Everyone was slightly posh except from one girl witch was normal. Her name is Carly. She gets bullied because she isn’t as posh as the others. So because of that she always comes from school crying. Her parents try to comfort her but it never helps. She always says she’s a loser, always says she isn’t good enough to be in Keewoo. Day after day after day none stop it was repetitive. Untill one day they realized something different about Carly. Usually she was at least happy at dinner times. Carly rased her head up and in no time they started to cry. They realized she was……emotionless. A day later they got Carly a therapist to help her with her problems. It didn’t work they kept trying but there was no difference. They tried everything they could do. They thought she would never have her glow back but little did they now it wasn’t over. While Carly was at school James (dad) went onto her laptop to see if  he could find anything but there was nothing. After a few more days he checked and found something. He found out she was looking at dogs. But not any dog she was looking at a puppy name Pedro. “Jenna!!”(mum) he shouted Jenna came in rushing.”WHAT!?!?”she said out of breathe.”look!”. James explained everything and on her birthday they put a blindfold on her eyes and a few minutes later they asked her to open her eyes.”…..I…its Pedro” she cried tears of joy and once again she got her shine back. Sooner or later they all moved happily ever after.      The end!😉

SAVE OUR PLANET!!!

Our planet is being destroyed by many things.This is what this post is all about.Here are a few problems the word is facing:

.Littering.This harms wildlife by trapping it and wildlife eating it.Because us and many other species eat this wildlife,it’s affecting them as well.

.Recycling.Not as many things as you might think are being recycled.A lot of things are only being used once,and then being thrown into a normal bin,instead of a recycling one.A lot of things aren’t being thrown  in bins and are instead being littered.

.Global warming.Due to pollution from cars and factories,the planet is getting warmer.This is causing the arctic to melt,which means higher sea levels.Higher sea levels means that there will be more floods.Also,hot countries will become boiling,warm countries will become hot and cold countries will become warm.

As you can see,the planet is facing many problems and those were just a few!We need to save this planet and soon,for it is not long until we can’t turn back.So whenever you post,tag save the planet,and lets make it the most tagged thing!

Singing in the rain. Part 1

The performance was done by Smithills High School. We walked there, it was a mile there and a mjle back. At first there was a man called Don and a women called Lina both famous or should I say the Don  was. Their fans were surrounding him and not Lina because she had a annoying voice ,trash singing and  bad acting. The news reporter asked him how he ended up famous. Then he sang a song from his olden days. Then they had a party and Don walked it instead  of driving. Then when he came to the party he saw fans and a women sitting on a sofa. He quickly ran to her and put his hand on his shoulder.  the fans went away. The women called security and when security came the cop got exited and shook his hand because he knew they were famous. Then went back to where he came from. After-that Cathy said how bad his acting was and that she could do better. Don questioned how because she wasn’t an actor. She replied she was an actress and said she had a dance booked for tomorrow and that’s why she was at the party. Then they heard Lina coming. Lina rushed to Don and asked what he was doing with her. It was the intermission n right after and Smithills gave us a biscuit and juice.

Manchester United by Subhaan and Ismail

History:
The football club was founded in 1878 as Newton Heath Football club. Later it was renamed Manchester United. Their stadium was built in Greater Manchester and was named Old Trafford and to this day it is one of the oldest stadiums with no new features. United’s history is very tragic because of the Munich disaster, which killed a lot of people. The club was rebuilt and the team were back to winning titles.

Titles and Money:
Between 1983 and 2014, Alex Ferguson was in charge of man united. To this day he is called SIR ALEX FERGUSON because he won 20 EPL titles 12 FA cups 5 league cups and a record, 21 FA community shields and 2 champions league titles. This makes the club not only rich, but they hold the record for an English club with the most trophies and
most consecutive wins.

Rivals:
Manchester United have had countless rivals but they have very iconic rivals including Liverpool, Manchester city , Chelsea, arsenal and Spurs. These matches have amazing atmosphere. United and Liverpool is considered the biggest rivalries in all of English football.

I hope you learned a lot about Manchester United and why they are so famous. Enjoy!

singing in the rain

On Tuesday we went to watch singing in the rain at Smithills high school .Other schools were over there as well. My favourite part was when the capital came on ,I like capital songs and also when we had a break we had two biscuits, orange juice and apple juice. It was my favourite thing ever. Just if the play was a bit longer it would be the most relaxing thing ever in my whole. I wish I could go tomorrow not even that, every day because it was so relaxing on that chair.
