Year 2 had an exciting afternoon this week learning about internet safety. They were able to discuss and find lots of solutions to any problems they may have when using the internet. The children then made a jigsaw to share one way we can stay safe on the internet. We have connected all the pieces together as shown in the pictures below.
It has been an intense 3 days of cycling in very low temperatures but everyone tried amazingly hard, were very resilient and all received a certificate for their effort! It has been lovely to see how much everyone can progress over 3 sessions and they had great instructors to support them. Some children managed to pass their Level 2 as well!
Well done to everyone who took part!
Here is a photo of a few of the children, who were really excited to get their certificates!
Year 5 have been learning how to roll their 7’s this week so that they know their times tables off by heart! Have a listen and see if you can join in!
Today is Safer Internet Day so this afternoon 3/4F and 4D spent some time discussing how to stay safe online. We particularly focused on learning about how to be a good friend online and how we can help keep each other safe. We had lots of discussion about different scenarios and situations as well as activities sorting kind acts and unkind acts online.
If you have any questions please feel free to speak to Miss Holloway and Miss Gilders.
6D have enjoyed taking part in a morning discussing relationships online and how interactions can effect the feelings of others.
They have taken part in positive dialogue, discussing different online situations, behaviours and relationships, suggesting very sensible and mature solutions and explanations. They are looking forward to recording their evidence of this learning on their realsmart online learning portfolios!
6D’s top tips for parents and children for having positive online relationships and using positive online behaviour:
- People can interpret things differently. Be aware that a message/ post online that you think is funny, could be embarrassing or upsetting to others.
- Never respond to a negative message or comment. Always tell an adult straight away.
- Never talk to a person you have never met or is hiding their identity.
- Something you post online (picture, video, comment, message) is there forever, once you have sent it. They can never be completely deleted. Never post anything that you will feel regretful about later.
- Parents and adults should always know what their children are doing online (games, social media sites, friends, interactions). Even as we get older, we need to be supervised and checked on.
- Always ask a person’s permission before sharing a picture of them online.
- If you’re not sure that your post or message is ok, then it probably isn’t. Always get an adult’s opinion and consent.
- If it doesn’t feel ok, then it is not. If you feel unhappy or uncomfortable, remove yourself and tell an adult.
- If your parent says ‘No’, then you do not use it.
3/4F have been learning short multiplication to multiply two or three digit numbers by a 1 digit number. After lots of guided groups and independent practise we have all mastered this method to our year group standard! Today we applied our learning to a competitive team quiz, Kahoot! We had lots of fun playing against each other whilst practicing our short multiplication method. We also had to work well in teams!
This week in Year 3, we have started looking at mythical creatures from Ancient Greek myths and stories. We have began with Medusa, a hideous, snake headed gorgon! The children had great fun creating their own Medusa head bands and wearing them whilst writing this week.
