Joan the Journalist visits Saint Philip Howard J

oan 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 off working for the “Herne Bay Times”. She started as a reporter, then a editor! But now she has moved on to the “Woman’s 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!!! Ellen Walton

In school this term IN PE year 5/6 (or Eagle Class) have been playing ball games. It is to improve our team and ball skills. Games such as dodge ball, bench ball, football etc.

YEAR FOUR is learning about circuits in science. I like it because it is new and exciting !!!!!

IN SCIENCE year 3 were learning about our teeth. We need to clean our teeth every day to keep them healthy.

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 pictures of the fire. The writing and painting was hard

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

HAPPY Chinese new year. The year of the DRAGON. On the 23 January 2012 it was the start of the Chinese New Year. Great celebrations have been happening, carnivals and dragon dances and parties.

You can find out more about Lent on this website: http://www.catholic.org/ clife/lent/faq.php And for more on Easter: http://bit.ly/Z95t5

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

something, like sweets or chocolate, to show we love God. Alex McBean IN SCHOOL have been preparing for Easter. The lessons we are learning in R.E are all about the importance 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

Year Four to the Royal Albert Hall

O

n 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 exciting; there was a thousand children and teachers, who were there to listen to the concert. Laura Tizzard & Antonia King

 

I like collecting and playing Lego. My favourite Lego characters are the skeletons, I have 4 regular skeletons, 6 training skeletons and 9 Ninjago skeletons’, 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. Jacob Canavan

An Interview With: Miss Bishopp

 

Film Review: Star Wars - Episode III-VI

Toy Review: Monster high dolls

I LIKE this film because it has spaceships and it reveals that Anakin Skywalker 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 Millennium Falcon, which is my favourite spaceship and is Episode 4. I also like Episode 6 because Luke Skywalker is a Jedi and Episode 5 because Han Solo got trapped in carbonite. This is scary because Han Solo is a good guy. And Han Solo was put in Jaba’s Palace. Jamie Hurst

THERE ARE a lot of monster high dolls to collect such as Cleo Di Nile, Operetta, Toralei and Abby Abominable. 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 flying off the shelves. Laura Tizzard & Antonia King

 

Game Review: Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7 LIKE THIS game becase it has a lot of new spells. It has new features like headmines bag and rons delimanater. Ron has a new hair cut too. There is also a game called Lego Harry Potter years 1-4 too. Alex McBean

LOOK CAREFULLY at the center circles on both the left and right. Which circle is bigger? Are you sure they aren’t both the same size?
