Safer Internet Day 2017
Be the change - unite for a better internet! This was the tagline behind this year´s Safer Internet Day (https://www.saferinternet.org.uk/safer-internet-day/2017) As always, we did a huge celebration of this day in Primary from EYFS through to Year 6. All the year groups had a range of fun and current activities to complete in the day, with their class teachers. Then, at the end of the day, I did a special assembly for the whole of the juniors. I covered all the fundamentals of internet safety in my assembly. However, I also looked at raising awareness of how much screen time children have out of school. There is more to life than be sat in front of a screen at the weekends! The children certainly agreed. One class, even brought in a range of creative things that they had done at home with their parents, the evening after the assembly. I also did an assembly for KS1 on the Thursday, with a similar focus. A very positive experience all round.
Safer Internet Day compliments the many lessons that the children have throughout the year on this hugely important subject.

Year 6 WW2 Evacuation Day
On May 25th, Year 6 students took a trip back in time to the 1940’s; to experience what life would have been like as an evacuee during the tragic Second World War. The children brought their hand-made gas mask boxes to school, alongside their suitcases, which were packed with all essentials –clothes, toothpaste, cuddly toys, a snack for the train journey and even some surprise, emotional letters from parents.
To begin the day, the evacuees waved a tearful goodbye to their families, and set off on the journey to Cornwall. After boarding the steam-train (classrooms with rows of tables) the pupils opened their suitcases and explained why they had brought each of their belongings. They then played a typical old fashioned game called ´Beetle´ with their new found friends. Once the journey had ended, the children gathered in the movement room, ready to be interviewed by potential foster parents; they were asked questions like ¨How strong are you?¨or ¨Can you milk a cow?¨. After being selected one by one, they went along with their new families to write a letter home describing how they felt on their first day away from home.
Well done to all the students and teachers who did a wonderful job at keeping in character role throughout the day. The children had a great experience, and most importantly gained an insight into how difficult life was to be an evacuee child during the War.
Year 6 Transition Day 1
The children came back buzzing from the experience in the Seniors from the Transition Day. They could be heard sharing stories about the different lessons that they had. From PE to French, they had 7 different lessons with as many teachers. A small taste of what life will be like everyday in September.
Here is a quote from one of the pupils:
We had a Physics lesson with Mr Jordan. The truth is, we all enjoyed the activities and the challenges that we were given. We couldn’t stop gazing around the laboratory in awe!
We had to solve and prove it. Our first mission complete, we moved on to a new experiment. The second experiment was based on magnets. Testing different things, we answered the questions that appeared on a sheet. Once that was done, a challenge was set up. Using the equipment provided, we had to manage the impossible: Make a paperclip float. Using our magnetic knowledge – we did it!
Valeria – Year 6
Goodbye Year 6
On Friday, Year 6 enjoyed their Graduation ceremony. This moment marks a key point for Year 6 as they begin their journey from the Primary school and into the Secondary School. The ceremony was World War Two themed to reflect their recent class topic and they entertained their audience with songs from the era. Jokes, memories, stories, poems and writing all played a part in creating a wonderful afternoon of entertainment and reflection. All Year 6 pupils also received a book as a reminder of their time in Primary. We hope it will bring you much pleasure in the years to come.
Thank you Year 6 and we wish you every luck in Year 7!
