UNICEF Rights of the Child

For homework last week, our task was to create a poster based on UNICEF’s Convention of the Rights of the Child. We discussed what Articles we valued the most with our family and wrote about why they are important to us. After our posters were complete, we made video recordings presenting our posters and ideas. Below is a video from each Year 5 class! Presenting their videos are Nicolae from Ruby Class, Shobhit from Red Class and Nilab from Scarlet Class.

 

 

Year 2 get STEAMing!

Year 2 really enjoyed STEAM week.

We learnt lots of new things. We built boats and investigated how to load them so they don’t tip over, we designed an animal that was adapted to survive in the Arctic, we investigated the effects on climate change on the ocean and we created a menu for Arctic explorers to make sure they had enough energy.

On Wednesday we had a fantastic DT day. We designed, created and evaluated a moving picture of animals that live in Antarctica.

We had so much fun this week, we can’t wait to do it again next year!

Here are some of our photos of the week:

Safer Internet Day!

This week it was Safer Internet Day and Year 2 learnt about how to stay safe online and how to deal with cyberbullying.

After learning how to be SMART on the internet, they wrote tweets to teach people what they could do if they were being cyberbullied.

Here’s some of their advice:

‘If I was cyberbullied I would STOP and step away from what I was doing and tell and adult I trust. S stands for stop, T stands for tell an adult, O stands for ask an adult if it is ok to go online and P stands for play with someone who is nice.’ @Ishika

‘Don’t tell anybody your personal information and always use a nickname.’ @Neeve

‘If you are being bullied on a game tell and show an adult. You should also go on single player if you are being bullied. If you are being bullied delete the chat group after showing an adult.’ @Hashir

Polar Explorers!

This week the whole school have become polar explorers for STEAM Week.

Miss Thompson and Miss Hopkins organised activities to help us learn about the Arctic and support the polar explorers in their expedition.

It has been a really successful week and a great end to this half term!

The children have enjoyed being polar explorers and it has given them lots of motivation for future work!

Here are some photos of what the whole school got up too!
