Learning Journals are a secure online reporting system that we use at Sunnyside Primary, we would like to invite any parents/carers to our workshops tonight, Monday 21st October 2019, at 3.15 and 5pm.

These workshops aim to:

  • Ensure you have access to Learning Journals.
  • Share how you can review and comment on observations.
  • Clarify how the school uses these throughout the session.
  • Share how to upload your own observations of wider acheivement.

If you cannot make these we have also updated our Learning Journal FAQ’s – available here:

Online Safety Awareness Workshops – Tuesday 29th October

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.

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.
