The new Doctor Who – hit or miss?

Lots of us have strong views on Doctor Who and the new series. Statistics have shown a decrease in audience numbers and many have been asking if the new Doctor, Jodie Whittaker, is to blame.

I have asked people for their opinions in school and here are some comments: A pupil in Year 4 said, “I think the show is amazing and the new Doctor is great!” A pupil in Year 5 said, “I love the way the 13th Doctor is female because 13 is supposed to be unlucky, but this Doctor is definitely not unlucky.” What do you think?

On Wednesday 30 January there will be a democratic vote on whether you like the new series. Two voting boxes will be placed in the playground. If you like the new series you will vote in the box with a tick and if you dislike it, you will vote in the box with a cross. Results will be published next week! Michael Joy

Deadly Deforestation

Deforestation is important for us all to think about.

It is when forests are cleared for land to be rebuilt on for urban use or farms. It is a bad thing because it can lead to the loss of trees and animals who live in the trees.

It can cause climate change, soil erosion, fewer crops, flooding, increased greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and lots of other problems.

We need to remember to look after our planet and not destroy nature.
