Safer Internet Day 2016

SID 2

Safer Internet Day (SID) took place on Tuesday 9th February and the key message this year was to ‘play your part for a better internet’.

 

“Safer Internet Day is a fun day to learn about being safe on the internet.” (Matilda, Y4)

 

The day started with a special assembly that looked at the positives and negatives of the internet and how to be safe online. During the day classes took part in activities that got them thinking about how to be safer on the internet. Then all of the children wrote special messages which were compiled into a class book to be shared. The day ended with a special magic show.

 

“The show was really good as we were shown magic tricks but at the same time learning about being safe online.” (Tommy, Y4)SID 1

During the day the children were dressed as digits; they played number games on the playground; and each class had a competition to make the tallest tower of 2p coins (well done to Y4 who raised £26.92)!

 

The ‘Number Bake Off’ competition was well received and we had some great creative designs of clocks, dominoes, Sudoku puzzles and fraction cupcakes! Congratulations to all of our winners and thanks to everyone who bought a cake – the total raised was £244.51 – amazing!

 

“It was number-licious” (Thea, Y6)

Safer Internet Day (SID) took place on Tuesday 10th February and ‘let’s create a better internet together’ was the key message. The day kicked off with a special assembly that looked at the positives and negatives of the internet and how to be safe online. Throughout the day classes took part in activities that got them thinking about how to be safe on the internet. Y4 showed off their computing skills by using the iPad’s to produce ‘infomercial’ film clips based on the SMART e-Safety rules.

 

“I thought the day was interesting because you learnt how to be safe on the internet.” (Isabella, Y5)

 

Part of SID involved the children thinking of a good deed and making an online pledge:

 

“My good deed for Safer Internet Day is to help show my brother how to put a password on his iPad.” (Andrew, Y5)

 

“My good deed for Safer Internet Day is to help my sister not to send bad messages she might think to be funny!” (Rebecca, Y4)

 

“To help make the internet a better place, I promise I will show all of the younger children in the school how to use Hector the dolphin.” (Molly, Y6)

 

“To help make the internet a better place, I promise I will tell an adult if I see something online which is unkind or nasty.” (Arthur, Y2)

NUMBER DAY

Number Day 2Number Day 1

 

 

Number Day, in support of the NSPCC, was celebrated once again and this year the school enjoyed the challenge of solving puzzles during workshops provided by The Happy Puzzle Company. The puzzles required team skills to succeed and all of the children found them great fun.

 

“I really enjoyed the puzzles because they were exciting and I liked working with my team.” (Alfie, Y4)

 

Meanwhile, back in the classrooms the children were busy participating in special Number Day activities including number hunts, card games, maths fight, magic squares, speed stacking and board games like snakes and ladders.

 

“It was a fun day and I enjoyed dressing up and focusing on number.” (Holly, Y3)

 

During the day the children were dressed as digits; they played number games on the playground; they had to search the teachers for their numbers; and the whole school worked together to make a long line of 2p coins. A total of £70.00 was raised from the collection of 2p coins on Number Day and this has been sent to the NSPCC. Well done everybody and thank you!

 

 

Harvest Service at St Mary’s Church

This year our Harvest theme was ‘Harvest in War Time,’ to coincide with the centenary of the start of World War 1. We were treated by each class to music, songs, paintings and poems on this theme. Year 4 told us all about the children’s harvest camps during the war and Y6 highlighted the rationing that took place.

Our harvest collect consisted of food and toiletry donations to support the Wandsworth Food Bank. Year 5 spoke eloquently about this worthwhile charity and in total we raised 226.5kg’s of supplies. During a later Assembly Miss Payne commented that this was equivalent to the weight of an a fully grown African Lion!

Supplies run low as Christmas approaches so Year 5 decided to continue to collect for the Wandsworth Food Bank. The family group that collected the most items, travelled to Southfields to help out at the food bank for the afternoon.

If you would like to donate to the Y5 collection please send your items to the office.

First Week back after half term Delyth Evans Wright from the NSPCC visited St Mary’s. The children learnt about the work of this charity and also that the NSPCC believe that all children have the right not to be hurt, the right to be heard and the right to get help if they need it. Children were encouraged to have fun taking part in ‘My Big Workout’ and raise money to help end cruelty to children.
