On Friday 9th February the whole school took part in celebrating Internet Safer Day.
This year the theme was :Create, Connect and Share Respect. A better internet starts with you. During a whole school assembly we spoke about taking responsibility for our actions online and always considering the consequences of our online activity, as well as how we can make others feel.
It was then back to our classes to discuss and share our thoughts on not only keeping ourselves safe online, but also exploring that it is so difficult to get rid of anything posted online and how our digital footprint is there to stay.
To end the afternoon we all set ourselves a good deed to complete online to make ourselves of others feel better about themselves. It will be great to hear how many of us have completed our good deeds.

Year 4 have been learning to convert measures between millilitres and litres. Lots of children were busily writing these conversions in their books whilst trying to remember to include the unit of measure! Other children were working hard to match the different measurements.
We are wondering if you know how to convert 5000ml in litres? And which measurement would you use to measure the capacity of a mug?
Today in 3DP the children shared their topic homework of their own underwater empire from a British coast and we had a fantastic assortment.
From creative box scenes, PowerPoint presentations and a cake, to a Youtube home video clip about seahorses and cuttlefish.
We learnt about basking sharks, jellyfish, cuttlefish and sponges to name just a few, as well as learning some information about the Mary Rose. One child did a fantastic project about plastic waste on our beaches, which created an interesting class discussion.
I was so impressed with what children knew and it was wonderful to hear about their own stories, which included a dad being nipped by a baby shark, and another story of how a fish was saved from being trapped in a plastic bag.
Well done 3DP.
Year 3 have been looking around the playground to investigate the signs of winter as part of our Longitudinal study of the seasons in Science.
Well done to both Year 6 and Year 4 pupils who travelled to Bryanston School to take part in the Annual Maths Challenge – with two of our Year 6 boys coming second in their competition. What a fantastic achievement considering 25 local schools took part, many of which were from the independent sector.
The competition involves the pupils teaming up in pairs to solve many different kinds of maths problems against the clock.
Despite the nerves and the pressure, they all thoroughly enjoyed it and, as always, were a credit to the school.
