Through the CyberBuddy performance from Hopscotch Theatre, we learned how to stay safe on line. Be ” SMART” here’s what it means:
SAFE: Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information, – such as your full name, e-mail address, phone number, home address, photos or school name – either to people you are chatting with online or by posting it online where other people can see it.
MEETING: Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Only do so with your parents’ or carers’ permission and even then only when they can be present.
ACCEPTING: Accepting e-mails, IM messages, or opening files, pictures or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems – they may contain viruses or nasty messages!
RELIABLE: Information you find on the internet may not be true, or someone online may be lying about who they are.
TELL: Tell your parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online.
Every child should have by now brought home their ‘Beat the Street’ fob/key-ring, map and information pack for parents. Parents please remember to register your card and choose Lawmuir as your home team. Remember to scan as many boxes as you can and help us climb the leader board. Check our progress or find out more here .
We have been working on building friendships and co-operation. We went outside to learn some new team games that we can play during break times. We have also been continuing to do our Race to Rio laps, running, jogging and walking for 15 minutes per session.
The boys and girls in Primary 3 had a terrific time at Wishaw Sports Centre today. They enjoyed a carousel of indoor and outdoor activities such as rugby, football, tennis, dance and taekwondo. Well done boys and girls!
Primary 7 thoroughly enjoyed their Road Safety performance yesterday afternoon.
The performance emphasised the importance of staying safe when walking to school. The characters in the play showed how easy it was to give in to peer pressure and act silly near traffic. The children soon realised how silly behaviour can have a huge impact on their lives – for all the wrong reasons.
As part of book week, we have been learning about the classic story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. In PE, we were working in groups to make up dances to the ‘Oompa Loompa’ song. We had a lot of fun creating our dances and enjoyed performing them to the class.
This afternoon Room 3 had a Scottish Food Tasting afternoon to celebrate Burns. We tried haggis, neeps and tatties, Scottish oatcakes with cream cheese, smoked salmon, shortbread, tablet and Irn Bru. The haggis was very popular and all of the children really enjoyed trying new foods.
