E-Safety Workshop for Parents for ‘Safer Internet Day’
Next Monday and Thursday Mr Warner is running an E-Safety workshop for parents. This coincides with the approaching ‘Safer Internet Day’ on the 11th February. With the rapid changes in the online world this is a great opportunity to get up-to-date with what you’re children are doing online and learn about what we do in school.
Mr Warner is sure to point you towards some great resources but you will find really useful content at childnet.com and the Safer Internet Day website.
If you missed the email the dates and time for the workshops are as follows:
- Monday, 3rd February at 3:20pm
- Thursday, 6th February at 5:00pm
Koala Day—raising awareness of the Australian Bushfires
Today, Year 1 and 2 are held a ‘Koala Day’ to recognise the plight of wildlife during the devastating Australian bushfires. The children have all come dressed as Koalas (grey trousers and tops!) and were making ears first thing this morning. Through small donations from parents and carers we are hoping to raise enough to become ‘Koala Protectors’ for the WWF, whilst helping children to understand and contribute to their global community. The children have also been keeping an eye on what Longleat’s doing out in Australia on their YouTube channel. You can watch the videos below or follow the link:

Next, just a reminder about the great work our PTA are doing to raise funds for our school. Our new play-frame is due to be installed just after half term, we are in the process of ordering new picnic benches and then we are aiming to raise funds for 30 (much needed!) new laptops. We are always looking for volunteers but, of course, supporting the events by attending makes a big difference. You can follow the PTA’s latest news on their Facebook and Twitter accounts but you can find out much more in their latest addition of their newsletter, which was sent out earlier this week.
