Keeping children safe online is one of our main priorities and is an area of great concern. Many of our children access the internet and social media e.g. Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, TikTok with no awareness and understanding of the consequences and risks that they put themselves in.
In recent times we have seen a rise in; children who have been targeted by adults online; who have been bullied online; and who have posted inappropriate images and content which have resulted in them being significantly at risk.
Therefore we have asked NSPCC to support our mission by offering online safety workshops for parents. You may feel that you are able to monitor your child’s usage, however, we would strongly advise taking this opportunity to further support you in keeping your child safe.
This workshop is completely free, light refreshments will be provided, and will take place on Tuesday 29th October at 1:30pm and again at 4pm.
Please contact the school office if you wish to attend.

J, Z, C, J, B and A were learning about blogs this week in nursery. Mrs Gentleman showed the children our school website. Great excitement when they found the photo of the school building.

This is the first blog completed by our nursery learners.

Enterprise and Building the Young Workforce
Our nursery learners were learning about how you can make items to sell to other people to raise funds for the nursery and school at the annual Christmas Fayre.
Snowman Soup and eco-friendly magic reindeer food were a big hit. Lots of discussion about how they have the same at home.
“Sell it ….. My mummy and daddy are coming to fayre I will get them to buy one”
Our nursery learners requested pizza and soup for snack this week.Lots of numeracy language during our discussions about size, how vegetables can change and become smaller and
“I have pizza at home”
“that looks like blood”
Our nursery learners were estimating how much water was required to fill the containers.
“it’s going to take 10 to fill the bottles up”
The story area has become popular after a wee spruce up! Learners have been independent in reading stories out loud to themselves and their peers, describing the story in their own words and using a range of descriptive language.
“the wheels were flying they were going so fast”
“that’s cow, that’s pigs …..moo” says one of our younger learners
The interest in story telling has created an interest in illustrating their own pictures ….. “that’s the ice, snowflakes and fireworks”
“this is the grass, it’s long really long”
Wonder if we will begin to have plays and storytelling next week?
