The spring 2012 edition of our school newspaper.




    Joan is a journalist who visited our school on the 16th of January 2012. She came in to teach us all about her life in journalism. She started o working for the Herne Bay Times. She started as a reporter, then a editor! But now she has moved on to the Womans Magazine. She has also taught us short hand which she had

    to use when she was a reporter because normal writing would take too long to write! Everyone loved the short hand and found it very interesting. We all tried out our own names with the short hand. We all give thanks to Joan for coming to our school, we enjoyed it very much!!!

    IN YEAR 3 we have been learning about The Great Fire of London. We have enjoyed learning about it and it is very fun. We have written newspaper articles about what happened on the 2nd of September 1666 in Pudding Lane. We have also drawn and painted pic-tures of the fi re. The writ-ing and painting was hard

    but I still enjoyed it. The fi re started when the baker went outside and he forgot to check on his bread, the fi re spread quickly because the buildings were made of wood and really close together. Many buildings were destroyed, including St Pauls Cathedral.

    Lego Review

    I like collecting and play-ing Lego. My favourite Lego characters are the skeletons, I have 4 regular skeletons, 6 training skel-etons and 9 Ninjago skel-etons, which all have hats and weapons. I have been playing with Lego for four years and it is my favourite thing to do. If you want to buy Lego I would suggest the skeleton figures.

    What did you do for Lent?YEAR 4 made some prom-ises for Lent. Here are some of our ideas.

    1. Help mum to tidy up.

    2. Not fighting with my brother.

    3. I will try not to get in the way when my mum is busy.

    4. I am giving up crisps.

    5. I am giving up TV.

    6. I am going to be kind to my enemies.

    7. I will say my prayers ev-ery night.

    8. I will work hard and qui-etly at school.

    9. I will give up playing computer games.

    10. I will try to read a book a week.

    On 16 March 2012, year 4 had to get to school on time. This was to make sure they were in school to get the coach to London. Year 4 went to the Royal Albert Hall for a concert. It took the children about two and half hour to get to London. It was very excit-ing; there was a thousand children and teachers, who were there to listen to the concert.

    LENT IS Is a time when we remember the time when Jesus stayed in the des-ert for forty days and forty nights. While Jesus was in the desert the Devil ar-rived and tried to tempt Jesus with nice things if he stopped loving God and loved the Devil. Jesus re-fused to listen to the Devil and stayed in the des-ert with nothing to eat or drink, but God protected him. In lent we try to give up

    IN SCHOOL have been preparing for Easter. The lessons we are learning in R.E are all about the impor-tance of Lent. During Lent I gave up crisps and Ribena. The reason for us giving up our favourite things is to help us remember that Jesus died on the cross to forgive us of our sins. Joseph Nash

    something, like sweets or chocolate, to show we love God.

    Film Review: Star Wars - Episode III-VI

    I LIKE this fi lm because it has spaceships and it reveals that Anakin Sky-walker is DarthVader. This is very exciting because it only happens at the end so it makes you really want to watch Episode 4. The only thing missing from Episode 3 is the Millen-nium Falcon, which is my favourite spaceship and is Episode 4. I also like Episode 6 be-cause Luke Skywalker is a Jedi and Episode 5 because Han Solo got trapped in carbonite. This is scary be-cause Han Solo is a good guy. And Han Solo was put in Jabas Palace.

    Toy Review: Monster high dolls

    THERE ARE a lot of monster high dolls to collect such as Cleo Di Nile, Operetta, Toralei and Abby Abomi-nable. We think that Cleo is the best. They all have a special skull. We wish we could go to monster high. They are very popular so get them quick because they will be ying o the shelves.
