Across this week, we have been focusing on being safe online in class and in assembly. We joined an international push to make sure children have the skills and confidence to access the internet in a safe and secure way. Today we have been holding internet safety workshops for all our children from Year 1 to 6 and this evening we are looking forward to welcoming parents and carers to a special workshop for what will be an informative and engaging session.
This week an artist visited the school. Mr Tappenden worked with our children and Art Club and produced some lovely artwork using differient media.

Gardening Club had their first session today and had lots of fun harvesting lots of produce. They are particularly proud of their lovely pumpkins.
Yesterday morning we arrived at school to find a flatbed truck broken down in our lay-by. Our staff team quickly found a solution to the problem, setting up a one way system for traffic to ensure that all our children arrived at school safely. Thank you to all our families and buses for their understanding and co-operation. The lorry driver was very apologetic and his companion, Billy the Jack Russell Pug cross was very friendly!
Sadly, the lovely turf on the truck was destined for somewhere in Hampshire and not for us, even though we did suggest he might like to leave it here!
Our Owl Class had an amazing time at their Farm Camp last week. Thank you to Mrs Jesse, Miss Clark, Miss Dore and Mr King and to all our families for ensuring the children were so well equipped for their camp.
