Well done to Grace, one of our Year 6 pupils, who has learnt how to play Somewhere over the rainbow. she played it on her drive on Thursday evening. Well done!
Some of the staff have sent in their lock down VE day celebration photos, there are more on the individual class blogs. Please feel free to send us some of your photos, if you have not already done so.
Hope you are all well and keeping safe. Thought I would share a few photos of how I celebrated VE day at home. I decorated my windows with flags and bunting. I then baked some fruit scones (they were delicious) and had a lovely tea with my husband. Later that evening we had a Zoom lockdown quiz with my family whom I’m missing very much. It was a very enjoyable day overall. Hope you all equally celebrated VE day in a safe and enjoyable way.
Missing you all very much.
Take care and stay safe.

To celebrate VE Day Mrs Beddow and Georgia made a good old fashioned bread pudding. I remember my nan making it and telling me that she used to make it with her mom during the war – using left over stale bread and eggs from the chickens in the garden plus other rationed ingredients – it was very yummy and brought back lovely memories.
We then made some home made bunting to decorate our back garden.
We also enjoyed a family BBQ and relaxed in the garden while listening to 1940s Wartime songs.
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.
As part of Safer Internet Day, Mr Stephens led assemblies for KS2, Early Years and KS1 this week. The focus was on consent, and the different forms this takes – consent for using technology/internet, consent for uploading media and consent for access to your device.
Children discussed when they need to get consent and also to check the permissions that an app or website is asking for. More details about Safer Internet Day is available here – https://www.saferinternet.org.uk/safer-internet-day/2019
On Friday, Mr Stephens also led workshops for parents to find out more to keep themselves and their children safe online.
