For and Against wearing school uniform by Uzmah

After learning about balanced arguments in class, and especially whether graffiti is art or vandalism, I have been thinking about other issues that have both pros and cons. Here are some reasons for and against school uniform. I wrote this at home.
For:

–  to represent the school (so different people now which school you are from)

 – uniform means that we are secure/safe – in our own clothing, people will ‘show off’ their clothes and others might get jealous

 – our own clothes may be inappropriate or dangerous.

 – on a school trip, people will know what school  we arefrom (can compliment us or help us if we get lost)

 – we don’t need to think about what to wear in the morning and therefore it doesn’t  waste time in the mourning.

 – our own clothes will not get messy or dirty if we wear school uniform .

 – staff and the community will feel proud of us if we all have the same uniform on.

 – if we feel good/smarter in school uniform, then we will work harder.

 – if we wore our own clothes all week, we wouldn’t look forward to wearing them on the weekend.

 – it looks better if everyone is wearing the same – everyone is wearing the same, which means we are all equal .

Against:

– school uniform is more expensive than our own clothes.

 – wearing our own clothes is less hassle because mums have to spend ages washing and ironing

. – it doesn’t matter what you wear in class so long as you are comfortable.

 – our own clothes are cool and funky they express your fashion..

 – in uniform, we look the same every day for five days a week.

 –  – if we don’t get it washed quick enough, we will run out of school uniform.

 – uniform takes ages to put on and get off.

 – if children are naughty on a trip, everyone will know who we are.

 – more children would want to join our school if they saw that we got to wear what we wanted

Which position would you choose: for or against ? Why?

Red Nose Day! 15th March 2013 By Paige.

This year Bearwood Primary School will be doing a dancethon for 6 hours without stopping. We are hoping to raise as much money as possible to help children who are in need! Red Nose Day helps many young children and families across the world who are living in extremely bad conditions. Get your neighbours, family members or friends to sponser you a couple of pennies could save a childs life. £2.00 could pay for a check-up for children living in poverty in Uganda (Africa) £5.00 could help a whole family who are living in slums by providing a better home for them to live in. £10.00 could provide for children in the UK who are in desprete need for food, £10.00 can also pay for ten children to have hot meals. This little money could help put a childs life better so please help us by only bringing a couple of pennies. Remeber Friday is dress down day but you must wear red and bring in 50p or more. You can also buy a red nose from either Sainsbury or school for £1.00.

Would you really want to see childrens life being ruined? Would you want to see these vulnerable children having to survive on atleast one meal a week? Help the young children and familes. Make their life better!

What will you be doing for Red Nose Day?

 

Uzmah’s poltergeist work

Poltergeists

Poltergeists used to be one of the most popular ghosts in Britain, however since 1478 they have fallen out of favour and are now persecuted by human beings. As recent as one hundred years ago, there were thought to be over 20,000 species of poltergeist but they are now known to be extremely rare.  It is thought that there are now only 500 different species remaining.  But even when there is only a minority of them, they still continue to traumatize their innocent victims. Poltergeists are very stealthy: they can sneak up on you when you least expect it!

Habitat

The ghosts favour open habitats such as abandoned, decrepit homes where they are unlikely to be disturbed.  After choosing a suitable home to haunt, poltergeists wonder around the home freely and horrify the residence during the middle of the night, while they are a sleep. They have captured people’s imagination like no other ghost of the past.

Appearance:

Poltergeists have repulsive, hideous fangs which they use to suck out their food when they are eating. They have a transparent body and have the power to turn invisible whenever they wish. They have a revolting face which they use mostly to terrify innocent young children or nervous lonely women. They appear to be very similar to ugly trolls that live under bridges who you may have seen in popular children’s stories.

 

Diet

Tear up the stomach and suck the flesh out for a chilling drink. Their favourite meal to eat is. Food is often swallowed and the indigestible parts, such as the bones and fur, are regurgitated in the form of ghosts.

Behavior:

Regal Spirits are posh and never act childish. They haunt at the middle of the night by smashing items. 0nce someone comes down to check what happen, it will scare the person making them run for their lives. They also go under the bed at night and haunt the person while they are in the middle of sleeping. They hate Headless ghosts and will do anything to stop them from playing football with its head.

 Hobbies:

Headless spirits like to play kick ups with their heads when nobody is looking. Servant ghosts love to cook they spend most of their time cooking and serving the headless ghosts (masters). Misty ghosts like to swap things one place to another, they cause chaos by wrecking stuff the room.

Is graffiti art or vandalism? By Paige


At the start of this term we have been learning about balanced arguments. We have been doing loads of fun work this week on this- we even got to have a discussion in front of the class. Our teachers have had a letter from the Sandwell council about the issue of graffiti and how it`s effecting residents. We have had a go at beginning to think of balanced arguments however, we still need abit more work! I want to ask you your opinion. Do you think graffiti is art or vandalism? Please explain your reasons.

 

Isaac Newton by Aaron.

Sir Isaac Newton is one of the most influential scientists of all time. He came up with numerous theories and contributed ideas to many different fields including physics, mathematics and philosophy.

Isaac Newton was born on 4 January 1643 in Woolsthorpe, Lincolnshire. His father was a farmer, who died three months before Newton was born. His mother remarried and Newton was left in the care of his grandparents. In 1661, he went to Cambridge University where he became interested in mathematics, optics, physics and astronomy. In October 1665, a plague forced the university to close and Newton returned to Woolsthorpe.

One day Isaac Newton was sitting under a tree when suddenly an apple fell on his head, which inspired Newton to figure out how objects moved towards the earth. In 1687, Newton published Philosophae Naturalis Principia Mathematica (one of the most important books in the history of science) describes gravitation and the three laws of motion: the law of inertia, F=MA, for every action there is an equal and opposite re-action.

Newton moved to London in 1696 and took up a role as the Warden of the Royal Mint, overseeing the production of the Pound Sterling.

I hope you guys liked my facts peace out.

 

Forces in Action. Our new science topic! By Shannon And Harjunpreet

Today we started our new Topic which is all about forces. We learnt that if you went to the moon you would be less weight than you are on the earth!  This is because weight is actually the amount of force acting on an object due to gravity (measured in Newtons) and mass is what we usually call ‘weight’ and is measured in kilograms. We also got to use the Newton meter which is an instrument which measures the size offorces in newtons. It contains spring which stretches as more weight are added. The center of the earth has the most gravity compared to the moon because it is larger. That is why you weigh less on the moon!

After we learnt a couple more facts Mrs. Devany introduced us to the Newton meter. There was a variety of meters and colours. We chose which objects to weigh and predicted as we went.

We will add some photos soon.
