Staying Safe Online
Tuesday 8th February was Safer Internet Day.
We are sure you will all agree that staying safe on line in this digital age is a very important topic that the children should be aware of at home and in school.
The theme this year is ‘All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online’
This year looks at online gaming, chat functions, streaming and video. The day will celebrate young people’s role in creating a safer internet, however they choose to use it, from creating content to interacting with friends and peers.
In Reception Class 5 and 6 had time to explore these issues in an appropriate way for their age.
They talked about different apps and activities they enjoy online.
They talked about the importance of being careful online.
The children enjoyed using the Smartie the Penguin resources to support this learning.

Going for Gold!
It was competition time in Reception today! We played the ‘4 Coloured Mats’ game: a teacher would call out red, yellow, green or blue and the children raced to get to the correct mat first!
As well and having lots of exercise and fun, the children learned about resilience, cheering for their friends and celebrating one another’s success.
The winners and runners-up were given a special medal on a cushion and we gave them a huge round of applause! Well done Class 5 and Class 6!
Green for CAFOD
This week in Reception, we “went green for CAFOD”, to raise awareness of global issues such as, climate change and making the world a better place. It was wonderful to see so many children come to school in their outfits! Just like the world leaders at COP26, we met together and talked about how we can make a difference.
We believe that parents and/or carers play a vital role in their child’s education. We hope to work in partnership with you – we will support your efforts at home and provide opportunities for you to engage in your children’s education in school.
