eSafety – Spring Term 2018

This week, the children have been involved in eSafety sessions.

Firstly, thank you to all of the parents who attended these sessions. It is important that the children are aware of these issues and seeing parents at these sessions, makes it clear that the messages we give at school are also being talked about at home.

They have been reminded of the importance to stay safe online and to tell our trusted adults if we see or hear anything online that upsets us or anything that makes us feel sad, angry or worried.

I therefore have some further information for you regarding this important issue. Safer Internet Advice to Parents. This information helps parents with what to do if your child sees something upsetting online.

It has been made explicitly clear to the children that if they are unsure about anything, or worried, scared, lonely or upset, they should tell one of their trusted adults at home or school to try to help them out. I hope the information above and the links which are included in that post are useful in dealing with the sometimes difficult conversations that can come up if children do see or hear anything which they shouldn’t, online.

Below, you will find links to the quiz which was used in the sessions, along with the answers to these questions. I hope you find these useful. The children should know the answers, as they have been more fully explained during the eSafety sessions.

If you have any questions or queries relating to the eSafety sessions which have taken place this week, please do not hesitate to find Mr Higginbotham around school.

Thank you.

Anti-Bullying Week

This week, we have been thinking about the issues around bullying. In Team 8, we think that bullying needs to stop. We don’t want bullying in our school. We each made an anti-bullying bracelet and made a promise to ensure Charlestown is bully free.

We finished the week with a balloon release to help spread the anti-bullying message.

What do you need to be happy?

In our P4C lesson this week, we investigated what we needed to be happy.  We started with lots of different things but then in groups we tried to get to the minimum amount of things we would need to be happy. It was a difficult task as we all have different ideas. One thing we all seemed to agree on was Family and Friends. What do you think? What do you absolutely need to be happy?

What a busy first week back 😀

As a start to our fantasy writing Team 8 made up their own fantasy stories using finger puppets.

Great story telling. If we can orally tell a story, then we can write a story 😀

We also kicked off our new topic, Europe. On Monday, the children got to book a holiday to Europe, make their own passport and earn money to spend, before finally boarding the Charlestown plane.

If you could pick anywhere in Europe to go on holiday, where would you go and why?

Some great homework again this week Team 8. Here are some examples 🙂

Hope this gives you all some inspiration for next week.

Enjoy your research
