Online Safety PSHE lesson

Year 6 have discussed the responsibility that comes with posting on social media sites, along with the importance of online privacy. We discussed how private photos and videos of individuals are for them to decide whether or not they should be shared on social media not others.

The children were reminded to be aware of what they are posting online including what they like and comment on. They were also reminded that if they bring their phones into school, that they must be switched off and remain in the office whilst they are at school. Phones must not be switched on again until they are off school grounds.

Dinosaur workshop

Today Ash and Beech Class had a dinosaur workshop. The children got to see 3 different dinosaurs! One was a baby T-Rex called Jack, (he was a little bit cheeky and kept biting Mrs Markham) the other was Mia, she was a 2 year old Triceratops and the last one was Sophie, she was a 7 year old T-Rex. The children were so excited to see and learn about the different dinosaurs. After meeting the dinosaurs, the children got the act as palaeontologist and search for dinosaur bones and Fossils. We really did have a fantastic day!

RE workshop

Y3 have had Mrs Bastable come in to teach them stories from Jesus’s life. Today, we looked at the story of Zaccheus and how Jesus loves everyone, that everyone deserves love and can change their behaviour. We thought about how Zaccheus’s behaviour changed from the beginning of the story to the end. 

Reebops-Spruce class

Year 6 have made marshmallow Reebops in science to help their understanding of genetics. The features and characteristics of the Reebops were chosen randomly to replicate the natural selection process and constructed out of marshmallows and pins. We learnt that discontinuous variation is how we inherit certain characteristics from our parents genes. The children particularly enjoyed naming their ‘baby’ and putting it into our Reebop nursery!
