Safer Internet Superstars!

Today was Safer internet Day, so we kicked off proceedings by joining together for an Internet Safety Assembly organised by Google ‘Be Internet Legends”. A big thank you to Mrs McHarg for signing our classes up to the online assembly as we listened and learned about protecting privacy, being informed and not falling for false scams and the importance of keeping passwords private! Now they know the do’s and don’ts – here’s hoping all pupils remember how to stay safe online!
Afterwards, our newly learned knowledge was put to the test with an online quiz which explained different scenarios and what we should do, we learned that parents, carers and teachers will always help if ever in a cyber crisis!!
We played a “guess the app” game which had been organised by our Digital Leaders, Daisy and Ewan-  and we had good fun with this round. Some of the app icons really got us thinking!
Back in class, P5-7s checked out the BBC Own It website by exploring the ‘Put your phone down and meditate’ section for a digital detox and Stop-Think-Send which encouraged everyone to think before they posted online – and what to do if they have said something they regretted or received something which upset them.  This is something which we have been talking about a lot in class recently and so hopefully pupils really found this session useful!
We reinforced this by sending a kindness email to a class buddy – just a nice way to communicate with someone! Everyone cc’d Mrs F into their emails so she could get a warm and happy glow from all the lovely things everyone was saying to one another!
Used safely – the internet is a wonderful place 🙂

Are these pupils Primary 5s from Leswalt? Or Roman Soldiers?!

Mrs F left the 5 Primary 5s (Roman, Ben, Rachael, Murray and Colin) an assignment to complete last week whilst P6/7 were away on their Glasgow overnighter! Their mission – to research the Roman army and plan, design and make their own Roman replica shields, helmets and swords!

Were they successful? Did they complete their task?

They most definitely did! Just look at their blog reports below and the fabulous photos!

Well done P5 – any Roman emperor would have been proud to have you as part of their army!

Last week when the primary 6-7 were away, the p5 made some Roman shields helmets and swords. It was hard but fun! The hard bit was making the helmets. I really want to take the the stuff home and play with them and show everyone. It was quite tricky making them but we had some ladies helping. Thanks Mrs Kyle and Sheila!  We couldn’t do it ourselves .It was fun doing some research with our friends too!

Last week we made Roman swords, shields and helmets. We made them out of cardboard, tape and pins. I loved making them! They are great! I love everything creative. It was a lovely treat to have when the p6/7 were away in Glasgow. Remember it was us p5s who made these amazing Roman shields, helmets and swords! We are going to teach P6/7 how to make them later this week!     

By Colin

Last week the p7 and p6 went to Glasgow, but the p5 stayed at school and made Roman shields then we made swords and helmets. We made them out of cardboard and it was AMAZING! So next time you want to make cardboard shields or helmets – just ask Leswalt p5’s.       

By Roman

Last week, when the P6 and P7s went to Glasgow, all of the P5s made some Roman shields! It was a little bit hard but not too bad that I couldn’t do it! Sheila and Mrs Kyle helped us. I liked doing the painting and designing the pattern. I think our shields are amazing!       

By Rachael

I had lots of fun last week creating my Roman shield, helmet and sword when the P6/7s were in Glasgow! Spray painting the helmet was one of my favourite bits! I am looking forward to taking them home. We will be showing the P6/7s how to make mini shields later this week.
