Comic Relief Non Uniform Day.
Friday 19th March will be a red themed non-school uniform day in aid of Comic Relief's Red Nose Day. We are asking you to please come to school in non-uniform, but specifically with something red (red top, red dress, red hair bow, etc.).
As before we are asking for cashless donations where possible to keep everyone safe. The JustGiving link is below for you to donate what you can. We thank you in advance for all your support.
Today, (Monday 14th December) Key Stage 2 had an assembly led by Google on online safety. The assembly all taught us how to be 'Internet Legends' and how to have a successful and safe time when on the internet. They talked us through Google's online safety game called Interland. This link https://beinternetawesome.withgoogle.com/en_us/interland will take children to the game to develop their skills of being sharp, alert, secure, kind and brave when being online.
This link is for parents and details all about the game as well as ideas to support parents with online safety decision at home. https://beinternetlegends.withgoogle.com/en_uk/parents/
As a part of our Bare Necessities topic, Year 5 have been reading the book Kensuke's Kingdom, in which a man cares for orangutans, that are threatened by poachers. In the science curriculum, we are learning about the orangutans and their gestation periods. In English, we will be writing speeches based on Greta Thunberg's to encourage people to help to save the orangutan species.
To support the curriculum, on Monday 5th of October, Orangutan Veterinary Aid will be holding an online workshop via Teams with Y5 children. This will be an informative workshop, to share facts, success stories and inform the children of why the species is endangered.
On Friday 9th October, children will be invited to wear non-school uniform to raise some money for the charity. Please send your child to school in non- school uniform and bring a donation of 50p-£1.
Thank you for your support.
