Safer Internet Day

Tuesday 11th February 2020

 

For Safer Internet Day, we made predictions about a text using this image. We thought of and discussed a lot of important words that might give us clues about the story - predator, prey, danger, suspicious!

 

We then read Chicken Clicking, where the main character makes lots of mistakes online; including using someone else's identity to buy things, posting personal details online and arranging to meet someone she had met online, without telling an adult. We talked about why these things are wrong and what she should have done instead.

 

 

We then created TV news reports to ensure that other people are aware of the dangers of not being careful online.

Useful information for this half term

PE

 

  • P.E for 2B is on a Monday afternoon and Friday morning.  Please can you ensure your child has both their summer and winter kit in school including suitable footwear as they will be doing some sessions indoors and others outdoors. Please make sure ALL P.E kit is labelled and studded earrings are either removed or tape is brought in to cover them safely.
  • In March, Year 4 children will be going swimming. A letter will be sent out closer to the time with information.

 

Music Lessons

 

  • If your child plays a musical instrument, please remember to bring it in on the day of their lesson. 

 

Reading at home

 

  • Please read at home with your child at least 3 times a week- it really makes a difference! smiley (Green Cards and a stamp on the reading challenge are rewarded every Friday morning for that week and we count weeks from Friday-Friday to include the weekend)

 

Spelling

 

  • Children in Year 3 and 4 are set weekly spellings to practise at home which will be stuck in  their diary on a Friday and link to the spelling rule learnt that week. Please ensure you look over their spellings regularly as taking the time to learn these will greatly affect their achievement and confidence in their weekly spelling test which takes place on a Thursday. 

 

Times tables

  • Each week on a Thursday, children will have a timed times tables test. Across the school, the children are working on a progressive new system which involves practising old times tables as well as introducing new ones. The children will begin on Bronze, and once they score full marks on all 40 questions involving multiplication and division, they will move onto Silver, and so on. The children all have a login for Timestables Rockstars and this links with the test they are set at school so practising on here at home will be helpful.  Please see the attachments below to see the structure of the times tables tests your child will be learning.
