Maths stay and learn session

Reminding all parents, as published in the Spring Key Stage Newsletter, we are holding a stay and learn maths session this term. It will take place on Friday 22nd March between 9 and 10 am. Parents of children an all classes are invited to come along to your child’s maths lesson and learn maths with them. It is a great opportunity to see how we teach your children maths and how you can support this at home.

Look forward to seeing you on 22nd March, no calculators allowed!

Year 6 need your rubbish!

Dear Year Six,

Please remember to bring in any clean plastic bottle tops, odd buttons, small boxes ( ie match box size) small foil dishes ( the size mince pies come in) and any straws or pipe cleaners that you can spare.

If anyone else has any of these items, Year Six would be very grateful. Please send them to the Year Six class room or the office by Tuesday morning.

With very many thanks,

Mrs Niven and Mrs Cockburn

Momo Challenge Advice

Dear Parents/ Carers,

Over the past couple of days there has been quite a bit of concern raised by both adults and children about the ‘Momo Challenge’ which appears to have gone viral and caused quite a stir.

Having looked into it, it appears to be a hoax but the worry it has caused is nonetheless real.

Time has been spent in school to demystify the whole thing, explain what fake news and hoaxes are and what it means when something goes viral on the Internet.

Please follow the link to the BBC Newsround Report explaining how it is a hoax. It would be great if you watch this with your children (we advise KS2 children only) so that the same message is put across at home as well as at school.

This link will take you to the NSPCC Net Aware website which is designed specifically to support parents in understanding the many different social media networks out there and how your children might use them.

Thank you to parents who reported this to us so we could act upon it in a timely manner. It is so important that we work together to ensure the safety of our children, make them digitally literate, equip them to make the right choices when online and discern fact from fiction.

If you have any further concerns please do not hesitate to speak to your child’s teacher.

Shoe boxes needed, please!

Year Six will be needing several shoe boxes for their Design Technology project this half term. If you have any shoe boxes that you no longer need, please send them into school. We would be very, very grateful.

We are also looking for scraps of fabric, odd ends of balls of wool, clean, empty yogurt pots and spare bubble wrap. These will all be needed for an exciting DT challenge project during our space-themed book week. If you have any of the above, please send them to Year Six.

With very many thanks,

Mrs Niven, Mrs Cockburn and the Year Six children!
