Year 5 Charity Appeals

We have worked incredibly hard to create these charity appeals. We wrote the scripts, recorded and edited the appeals in small groups. We are proud of what we have achieved independently.

Which aspects of the WILF do you think we have used well? Is there anything we could do to improve our appeals?

More appeals will follow once they are finished.

Why are people different by Liam

People are different because otherwise life would be boring. Let me tell you about my family. On monday 16 march my uncle graduated from studing law.He got lots of certificates and he even bought me the best best present.It was an xbox36o and 3 games.

My dad who is called Jhon was a boxer in the olden days. My uncle is called  Shane he is a blackbelt in karate. Both of them used to win lots and lots of trophies, I mean lots. My Nan was a nurse who looked after sick people in africa.

When it was my brother’s birthday me and my Mom bought him a Xbox and when me and my mom gave him it he was crying and laughing at the same time. We even had a BBQ he was playing his Xbox for the whole of his bithday he was playing JamesBond.

Did you know that my grandad was Chinese? I look different because I have lots of different nationalities in my family and at is one of he things that makes me special.

Sports Relief in 5M! By: Sidra and Aaliya

 Today was a FAB day in 5M because we started off in the morining  with with a fantastic sporty warm up to the Rocky theme tune and everyone loved it. We all stood up and we punched our arms in the air and we did lots of different boxing inspired moves! Then we started to get ready to leave so we could do our mile run in Warley Woods with the rest of the school.

When we arrived at the woods we started doing the  mile run. It was quite exhausting and if we sat down one the teachers would try and cheer us on so we could make it to the end. Everyone did something during the walk for example some of us ran, some walked and some even took a basket ball.So today it was a really fun, joyful day for 5M.

Everyone  in the class dressed up  in a fabulous  sporty  outfit. It really was a  fun-filled day for us but we didn’t forget the serious message.

Here are some facts about sport relief!

  •  Sport Relief brings the entire nation together to get active, raise cash and change lives.
  • Everyone can take part even at events across the UK.
  • The money you raise is spent by Comic Relief to help people living tough lives

Fair trade facts. By Bismah.

In my own time at home I have looked up on fair trade and here are some facts:

The first tea products on the shelves carrying the FAIRTRADE Mark were Clipper Sri Lanka Golden, Clipper Nilgiri Blue Mountain and Clipper Earl Grey Nilgiri.

The first town to achieve Fairtrade status was Garstang in 2000

Since launching in 2000, Fairtrade bananas now account for 1 in 4 bananas sold in the UK.

Since the introduction of Fairtrade happened in 2005, annual sales have risen from a humble 200,000 to a marvellous 7.79 million in 2008.

More than 7 million people in Africa, Asia and Latin America are not treated fairly how they should be. – farmers, farm workers, and their families.

The first three Fairtrade products appeared on shop shelves in 1994 – now more than 4,500 products have been licensed to carry the FAIRTRADE Mark, including sugar, grapes, mangoes, avocados, dried fruit, cakes, jams, rice, herbs & spices, wines, beers, ice-cream, flowers, sports balls, clothing, homeware, Palestinian olive oil and cosmetics!!

The Human Body by Zoe

I have found some information about the human body please comment and tell me what you think                                                                                                                                                         Bones


Bones give us shape and a framework for vital organs to be stored safely inside .

What are the functions of the Skeleton?

The three functions of the skeleton are:

  1. Support
  2. Protection and
  3. Movement

The skeleton maintains a body shape, protectsvital organs, and provides a system of muscle levers that allow body movement.

Humans (and some other animals) have bony skeletons inside their bodies which grow.

Without our bones, we couldn’t stand, walk, run, or even sit.

How many bones does the human body contain?

An adult skeleton contains 206 bones and the skeleton of an infant contains 350. As a child grows, bones fuse (join) together to make longer bones.

What is the longest bone?

The longest bone in our bodies is the femur (thigh bone).

What and where is the smallest bone?

The smallest bone is the stirrup bone inside the ear.

How many bones in a hand?

There are 27 bones in the human hand. The carpus or wrist has account for 8; the metacarpus or palm contains 5; the remaining 14 are digital bones; fingers and thumb.

What do the bones do?

Our bones provide support for our bodies and help form our shape.

They protect our organs against injury and enable us to move.

Some bones protect parts of the body, as the skull protects the brain, whilst others work together to make body parts move, such as the arm and leg bones.

Bones manufacture blood cells and store important minerals.

Quick Fact: If we didn’t have a skeleton we would be wobbly jelly blobs that would find it hard to move. Our skeleton supports our body .


Bones are connected to other bones at joints.

There are many diffrent kinds of joints including:

  • fixed joints (such as in the skull),
  • hinged joints (such as in the fingers and toes), and
  • ball-and-socket joints (such as the shoulders and hips).  here are some examples about the X-ray

Knee Joint

Knee X-ray
Includes: Shoulder, Elbow, Forearm, Wrist, Hand, Pelvis, Knee, Ankle and Foot

Your skeleton:

  • supports your body and gives it shape.
  • protects the soft and squashy bits of you.
  • has muscles attached to it.


Young & Homeless

I found this on Newsround, when I was reading this I was really shocked of how many kids go homeless (they think that round about 80,00 children go homeless). These children are human and they should never go homeless.

Here is a story I found:

Tom left home when he was only 16 years old, he is now 20 years old and he is still homeless, he still relies on a hostel in London to keep him safe at night. He survived through the cold days and days without food. Hopefully Tom finds a good home and an amazing life!!

I also found another story:

Liam (who is 18 years old) became homeless when things became tough at home. He also said that things became hard to find food and a nice place to live became a daily struggle. He talks about finding a shelter from the cold and rain and occasionally living without food for 3-4 days. Things are looking better for Liam who is getting help to find a new job and somewhere to live thanks to the hostel he lives in :).

Fair trade by Noorulain!!!

Here are some examples of fair trade things: sugar, tea, chocolate, wine, coffee, bananas, fruits and juices, honey, cotton and bean sprouts. The co-operative is a store that has alot of things that are fair trade.Fair trade is products that are better to buy than other products because the people who make or grow them get a fair price Often it is the people far away who grow foods, such as cocoa beans for your bar of chocolate, who are the ones who get the worst deal from what you buy. We have been shocked to see how far our food travels. Most fair trade things are made in Africa did you know that some countries in Africa and other places are poor?.
