Seahorses and Lobsters #freetobeme

Friday, February 14th, 2020

Seahorses and Lobsters have been busy making their own safe online identities. They have been discussing what information is safe to share online and what we shouldn’t share. They have learned how to be creative and unique online whilst staying safe. Here are some of their online identities…

A busy half term for dolphins!

We’ve worked so hard this half term, we have been geographers for our Lost Alien topic, we have been thinking about punctuation and sentence types in our literacy, we’ve covered lots of tricky thinking in our maths.

Here are some games to play over the half term (or whenever you want!):

Sharks staying safe on the internet

Tuesday, February 11th, 2020

Our whole school assembly this week was lead by Mrs Graham and it was all about staying safe on the internet. The theme this year is ‘free to be me’. We’re saying that it is fine to go online and be yourself you just need to keep safe. We thought about what information we can share online and what we should NEVER share online such as our full name, date of birth, address or the school we attend. We made some ‘free to be me’ posters and shared our ideas.

 

Dolphin's safer internet day.

Tuesday, February 11th, 2020

We have been thinking about Safer Internet day! We have been thinking about our online self. This is not a pretend version of ourselves, it’s our real selves. The theme this year is ‘free to be me’. We played some games first, such as agree or disagree where we moved to a different side of the classroom depending if you agreed or disagreed with a statement. Some statements were silly such as “football is the greatest sport” and some were more serious e.g. “people with brown hair can’t cook”. We made a class poster with things we loved to do and chatted about how we all like different things – which is fine! We also made an online image of ourselves and thought about what information we can share online and what we should NEVER share online such as our full name, date of birth, address or the school we attend.

We watched 2 videos too – https://edtechnology.co.uk/Article/free-resources-launched-for-safer-internet-day-2020/

Sharks - May the magnetic force be with you!

Thursday, February 6th, 2020

This week in science Sharks have been looking at magnets. We have been testing them to see what types of materials around the classroom are magnetic and which ones are not. We have also learned about how a magnet attracts and repels depending on the pole of the magnet.
