On track for return to village just after 7pm

 

All children set off excitedly this morning and are now (1pm) at the site. Lunch has been eaten and they are off to artificial caving and archery this afternoon. Really proud that everyone did these two activities.

 

Thursday

Good morning!
Children enjoyed fish and chips for their tea last night followed by chocolate cake. They then made their own sandwiches for today -fairly successfully! We then went on a night walk. Most children stayed fairly dry but a few had to empty water out of their wellies when we got back! 😀
Everyone slept well last night and we are all about to tuck into a cooked breakfast to prepare us for today's activities of climbing and kayaking.

Everyone has been very resilient today getting on with it regardless of the rain. Kaytee celebrated her birthday with all her friends.

Remembrance

 

As usual our pupils were brilliant as we held our silence following Mrs Price playing the last post for us. It is always a  really memorable occasion as the silence descends and we all focus our thoughts on those who have given their lives to protect the freedom we all enjoy in Britain.

 

This year all the children in school took part in painting stones as part of our new art project for our remembrance garden. As you can see from the pictures it has turned our really well and complements the plaques from last year that mirror those in the church listing those who lost their lives in the world wars.

 

We wanted to engage with the businesses in the local community around this project and children wrote asking if any would be able to sponsor a small part of the project. We have been really pleased with the responses.

A huge thank you to:-

The Swan Public house for their £20 sponsorship

The Co-op for their £15 Voucher

Planters for their £10 Gift Voucher & Sky Trail Adventure Pass

The Owl for their £30 sponsorship

Mill Crescent Newsagent for their £50 sponsorship

E- Safety

 

It's quite possible your children know more about the internet than you do as parents. As adults responsible for children it is our responsibility to ensure we keep up with what they are doing and find out as much as we can to keep that one step ahead!

 

Adults and children alike can face problems with the internet for example , identify theft, fraud, spam and scam emails.  As well as this there are more immediate threats such as inappropriate websites, cyber bullying and exposure to inappropriate images.

 

However the internet, is an indispensable tool to widen your learning and improve valuable life skills.

 

This page will provide key information on how to stay safe whilst you are online and will provide links to websites that will help you do this.
