Online Safety!

tuesday 1

It was a day with a bit of a safety theme today as the children were joined by Mr Collard, former PC, who talked to them all about how to stay safe online. Mr Collard gave an age appropriate presentation to each year group from Years One to Six where he provoked much thought about the need to not share information about themselves and which sites they should and should not be visiting. After school Mr Collard held a staff meeting in order to help the teachers develop their understanding of online dangers before also leading a parent meeting sharing similar messages. thanks to everyone who came along.

In the afternoon the day was interrupted when the children undertook an unannounced fire evacuation due to a faulty sensor. The alarm sounded and the children evacuated the building in a super fast time, staying outside until the sensor had been fixed and the alarm system was tested to be working properly again.

At lunchtime Mr B, Mrs Geach and Mrs Matteuicci were joined by children who had been identified as displaying excellent manners at the centre table. Well done to the children who were chosen.

At playtime there was a crowd of children all keen to show their support for Amelia’s charity fundraising by buying goods from her sale in aid of cancer research. Amelia organised the sale herself and raised over £60 for the charity. Well done Amelia, we are proud of you.

Over the past two days the children in Year Three enjoyed a fantastic day out at Belfairs Woods. They used their beautiful surroundings to create observational drawings of the woods natural features, went on a mysterious trail where they worked in teams to follow a series of clues and created large scale sculptures using natural objects. A great time was had by all, thank you to all the adult helpers who joined the children for the day.

Meanwhile, in the Foundation Stage, the children planted herbs in order to create a mini herb garden in the Early Years Garden whilst the children in Year Two continued to explore how to make castles in pairs.
