Online Safety Evening for Parents

A huge thank you to all the parents who came out in the cold to attend our session around online safety on Wednesday evening.  Despite turnout to the event being somewhat disappointing, we were able to enjoy a very positive evening, filled with great discussion and sharing of information around this incredibly important issue, which we know is a huge worry for some of our parents.

An extra special thanks goes out to the following parents, who have now agreed to become parent members of our Online Safety Group:

Mrs R Brennan

Mrs G Coombes

Mrs S Regan

Mr N O’Shea

We plan on running a repeat of the evening in the new year, in the hope that more parents will attend, as we believe that keeping our children safe online is something that we can only achieve by all working together.

The presentation used on the evening and some of the resources shared are available in the Online Safety section of the school website.

Below is a sample of the feedback we received from parents after the event:

Year 6 Table Tennis Tournament

Year 6 had their final Table Tennis lesson earlier today and took part in a class tournament. The standard was very good and it was clear to see the improvement made from their first lesson. Below is a video from both the girls and boys final, they were extremely nervous as they were not only being filmed but also had a crowd watching their every move.

An explosive afternoon in Year 4

Science – Magnetic walk

Yesterday, as part of our science investigation, we walked around the school discovered the magnetic and non-magnetic objects in our environment. The children worked in groups to discover whether different objects had a stong magnetic pull or a weak magnetic pull. The children did a great job at investigating the different objects, even outside in the freezing temperatures!

Advent

Today we lit the first candle of our Advent wreath, we focused in our prayer service about people who need our prayers the most and people we will keep in our prayers over advent and the Christmas season. We also looked into the meaning of advent and what we can do to prepare for Christmas. Have a look at some of our pictures of our class wreath. One of our children has even made her own advent wreath which she shared during this time. Super work Emily!!
