Google Assembly - Internet Legends

Posted: 16th Jan 2018

How to Be Safe and Epic Online

Internet Legends is a new, exciting way to educate primary school children in the UK on online safety. With the powerful and memorable Internet Legends code, Google and ParentZone aim to empower children with skills they need to stay safe and act responsibly online.

When developing the new roadshow, Google and its partners undertook new research to gain an insight into what concerns and motivates young people who are online, and how Google can work to promote attitudes and behaviour which ensure kids can confidently and safely get the most out of all that the internet can offer.

On Friday 12th January we were lucky enough to have the opportunity of Google and their Internet Legends visit the school. Here are some of the pictures from the event. 

 

Christmas Fair - Tuesday 19th December

Our Christmas Fair  was a  huge success with fantastic support from all our families. Each class designed and made their own game to help raise funds and there was even a chance to visit Father Christmas. This event was really well attended and with the support of everyone we managed to rasie over £500 which will go towards resources to support the children's learning and it will also enable school to offer more excititng opportunies for our children and their families. 

A huge thank you to everyone for their time and kind contributions which helped to make this fantastic event.

Mrs Murray, our Chair of Governors, kindly devised a competition in which the children were encouraged to write about our new 'Reflective Garden'.  The children produced some excellent pieces of work, showing a real understanding and appreciation of what the Reflective Garden means to them.  The Overall winner was Lucy (Class 5) and the Runner-Up was Maqsud (Year 1).  Mrs Murray presented Lucy and Maqsud with their prizes during Celebration Assembly on Friday.  A huge 'Well Done' to Lucy, Maqsud and everyone who took part.

Lunchtime Leaders

'Lunchtime Leaders' is a scheme, organised by 'FUNDA', in which Year 5 children are taught a range of PE skills and they are trained in how to deliver those skills in order to organise and lead a variety of playground games and fun activities. The 'Lunchtime Leaders' understand and appreciate the importance of co-operation and safety when overseeing the sessions.

On Wednesday 5th October our school welcomed a group of children and adults from the Bethany Primary School Project in Tanzania. Groups from the Bethany Project have been regular visitors to schools in East Lancashire for several years and are always wonderful ambassadors for their school. The group entertained children and staff with some fabulous singing and stories of what daily life is like for children in Tanzania, especially in rural areas. Two members of the group demonstrated how to carry a very heavy bucket, filled with water, on their head, (often for several miles), in order to provide fresh water for their village.
