Children in Need

The children had a great time raising money for Children in Need on Friday. Everyone took part in the Joe Wicks workout in the morning – the staff found it more of a challenge than the children! In the afternoon, our ‘bring-and-buy’ sale was a bit hit. Thank you all for supporting Children in Need.

After this, we made our own poppies.

We’re Internet Legends!

Year 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 had a special assembly from Parent Zone, where the children travelled to Interland and learned how to be Google Internet Legends:

  • Be Internet Sharp:
    • think before sharing,
    • evaluate whether a piece of information is private or not,
    • and think who will be able to see what is shared.
  • Be Internet Alert:
    • if an offer is too good to be true, is it a phishing scam?
    • think what is real and what is fake,
    • and think critically about information found online, is is true and is it from a trusted website?
  • Be Internet Secure:
    • keep personal information safe by creating unique passwords, combining characters, numbers and symbols.
  • Be Internet Kind:
    • spread positivity online,
    • speak up against and report bullying,
    • identify inappropriate behaviour.
  • Be Internet Brave:
    • when witnessing something inappropriate online, speak to a trusted adult about any concerns.
