Be Internet Legends

We had an assembly from Google Be Internet Legends on Monday. The whole of KS2 became internet legends. The assembly told us how to make the most of the internet, how to make smart decisions.

To become internet legends we had to make the legends pledge after we found out all about Interland and how to stay safe online.

The legends pledge:

Children and parents can access Interland here – https://beinternetlegends.withgoogle.com/en_uk/interland

We will continue to use the pledge and Interland as part of our Online Safety Curriculum in KS2.

Pelsall Carnival 2019!

Following our excitement at winning third prize at the WASUP exhibition, on Saturday we went on to win first prize for our stunning icy ‘eco-themed’ carnival float! We also won first prize for our walking group thanks to our fabulous team of carnival dancers! This is a fantastic achievement! Thank you so much to all of the children, staff and parents who have helped. We are so proud, well done Team Rushall!!!

WASUP Exhibition Success!

On Friday evening representatives from our school attended the launch of the WASUP exhibition at Walsall College. Schools from across the borough took part in the exhibition which promoted the WASUP campaign; “Walsall Against Single Use Plastic”, led by Professor Gatrad. The event was attended by many schools and representatives from local businesses and community groups as well as the Mayor of the West Midlands, Andy Street. Professor Gatrad explained to us that the campaign has become so successful it will now be known as “World Against Single Use Plastic”!

We were delighted to find that our tree, created with our eco-brick bottles, leaves and messages had won third prize! What an amazing achievement! Here we are proudly holding our trophy. Let’s hope our messages inspire others to stop using single use plastic as we have.
