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!
Class 7 have had a wonderful visit to The Deep today. We have seen so many amazing things and learnt so much about the different animals that depend on our oceans and how to look after them. Thank you for a lovely day everyone.
From Monday 26th February please can year 2 children bring their PE kits into school every Monday. They will be taking part in kixx (football) outside every Monday afternoon if the weather allows, if not, it will happen in the hall. This is for this term only.
Well done to our Y6 children who took part in the pyramid benchball competition on Wednesday at Trinity. Out of 8 teams competing we finished 3rd and 4th respectively. Well done Y6, keep your eyes peeled for the next competition!
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!
We had a great time this afternoon at our KS1 disco. We had hot-dogs, sweets and drinks and danced with our friends! Even Mrs Shaw and Mrs Clay joined in the fun! A huge thanks to the Friends of Green Top for organising it for us.
