S.A.T.S

In Britain  and the UK the week beginning Monday 13th of May 2013 to Thursday 16th of May 2013 is S.A.T.S week! This is when children in Year 6 ( children aged 10 or 11) which is the highest class in primary school take some tests to show off their knowledge.These consist of the usual 5 tests.A  reading comprehension test ( where you read a text and answer questions about it )50 MARKS   . 3 maths papers a mental maths paper ( where you have 20 questions that are played back on a CD and you have 5/10/15 seconds to answer them) 20 MARKS .Maths paper A where you have 40 MARKS   and 45 mins with 1/2/3 marks per question.Maths paper B where you still have 45 mins and 40 MARKS but you are allowed to use a calculator. Maths tests are marked out of a total 100 MARKS .You also have a spelling , grammer and punctuation test where you do what it says on the tin .You usualy do level 3-5  tests but some children do level 6 tests extra.

I am doing these and level 6  reading and maths .Wish me luck =)

Malala update

Malala is fine and and¬†discharged¬†from hospital! Nevertheless she has a¬†titanium¬†implant in her skull and in her ear she had had an implant !! But guess what she has 2619 people signing her¬†Nobel¬†peace prize¬†petition! (If you want to know any more about Malala send me a comment !)¬†Check out¬†Malala’s¬†video¬†click me¬†. It may be short but it is great !

Malala Yousafzai

Malala Yousafzai  was shot in the head , in her home town Mingora in ,Pakistan by Taliban  controlling that area.Girls were being stopped from going to school and Malala protested against it and was shot as a result while going home from school on the 9 October 2012. Luckily she is getting better at a hospital in Birmingham. I really hope she fully recovers and that her struggle to get girls to be able to go to school succeeds.

I think Malala was very brave for standing up for what she believed in . Malala started writing about her life under Taliban rule for  BBC Urdu at the beginning of 2009. For her selfless bravery she  has been awarded some awards and there is a  Nobel peace prize petition for her. Please sign her petition!  Malala day is celebrated on the 10th of November.

I was so shocked when I found out what had happened to¬†Malala because in England and many other countries we take school for granted and we don’t have to be scared to go to school. Now I don’t want to take school for granted because I know many girls like me don’t have the chance to go to school.
