Many thanks to our friends from 'Open the Book' who came into school this morning to share a story with us at assembly time.
We hope you all enjoyed the half term break. We have started back to school by reflecting on how we can achieve our best by
E-Safety Council prepared a whole week of activities to promote keeping safe online and to raise awareness about e-safety.
On Tuesday 7th the E-safety Council presented an assembly as part of Safer Internet Day.
On Wednesday 8th we welcomed PCSO Wayne Lippett into school to visit our junior children and discuss online and e-safety issues.
Other activities planned during the week included having a ‘Power-Free’ afternoon on Wednesday and House Huddles on Thursday to explore further this year’s Safer Internet Day motto, ‘Unite for a Better Internet’.
Additionally, Y4 visited Carrant Brook Junior School on Monday 20th February to learn more about e-safety through a drama production, ‘In the Net’, aimed at raising awareness about online safety.
E-Safety Council have also been working hard to raise awareness of ‘Hector’s World’.
The Hector’s World Safety Button is a child-activated safety tool that we have in school that allows the children to hide any content they come across on the Internet that they feel is inappropriate. We then teach them to tell an adult about it.
Parents can download this simple tool at home too at http://hectorsworld.netsafe.org.nz/teachers/hectors-world-safety-button/. If you click on the ‘E-safety’ tab on the ‘Parents’ page of the school website, you can find out more about Hector and there are further links to useful sites about Internet safety.
Our Y4 class travelled to Birmingham yesterday to perform in a mass choir event at the Genting Arena as part of Young Voices 2017. They had a brilliant afternoon of rehearsals, putting all their hard work into action. In the evening they sang and danced and put on an amazing show! What an experience! Well done to Year 4 and well done to all the staff for their energy and enthusiasm in supporting the children and making this opportunity such a memorable one.
