Safer Internet Day – Competition

In today’s world, we have easier access to the internet than ever before, whether that be through computers, mobile devices, tablets or even gaming consoles. Despite it’s obvious benefits, the internet can also pose many potential threats to us if we don’t make the correct choices whilst using it. Tuesday 6th February marks ‘Safer Internet Day’ across the UK with aim of promoting safer behaviour while we are online.

Over the half-term we will be running a competition throughout school to help raise awareness of what we can do to stay safe online. Children are tasked with designing a poster to promote safer internet use, with the best design from each year group winning a prize. These can be hand-drawn or even created digitally if you wish to showcase your skills using technology. If you would like to enter, then you need to hand your entry to your crew/class teacher before Friday 23rd February. Let’s get creative!

The event will take place on Friday 22nd March at 4pm.

We really hope you can join us in this exciting collaborative celebration.

If you have any questions, please speak to your child’s class teacher.

Year 6 – Our train expert

A massive shout out to Theo’s Mum who came and spoke to the children this morning about her role as a train driver. The children loved hearing all about: the skills needed to be a train driver, what is involved in the day to day job and the importance of train safety. They went on to ask some thoughtful and enquiring questions and hopefully it will have inspired some of our children to set themselves aspirations for a future career. Ask the children if they can remember the importance of 6 sheep to a train driver; this was linked to an interesting but funny fact!
