E-safety19-10-2017 | 13:13:21 | No Comments

As this week is e-safety week, the children have been looking at how to keep themselves online.

We have talked about social media and some of the apps and programmes they might use.

We discovered that we are all safe online by making sure that we:

Didn’t use our full names
Didn’t put location settings on
Didn’t have pictures of ourselves with our uniform on
Didn’t have anything on pictures that would give away our location

We made hats with ideas of things we could and couldn’t put on our social media to show that we wouldn’t wear them in public so why put it online?

We had a fun packed day last Friday with Portals to the Past.

A huge thank you to Ian (or Polly as we know him) from Portals to the Past who was a fantastic teacher and great fun.

Hearing about sound05-10-2017 | 16:35:03 | 1 Comment

On Tuesday we had another visit from the staff from Moorside High School to teach us about sound.

We experimented with tuning forks and listened to each other through a cup and string.

We now know that vibrations cause sound waves which travel to our ears through the air particles.

Next week we will be looking at the different parts of the ear and how it helps us to understand the sound waves.

Growing Brains with Maths05-10-2017 | 15:30:18 | No Comments

This week has been filled with super maths work.

During our inspirational maths week we have been looking at challenges which have tested our brains to the max!

We have discussed that we need to take our time with maths, keep trying even when we find it difficult and help our brains grow by making mistakes and correcting them.
