Safer Internet Day
As part of safer internet day we took part in a virtual assembly and designed some internet posters based around kindness and respecting others online.
We took part in the BBC Live lesson all about Bullying this week to deepen our understanding of what bullying is.
We learnt about different bullying roles and what we can do to help.
Target - Ringleader Bully - Assisting Bully - Reinforcers - Defender - Bystander
We also learnt about the reasons why people might bully and recognising our role in supporting others. We learnt about different forms of bullying including cyber-bullying and how we can keep ourself safe.

We talked through some scenarios to help us discuss how we can empathise and support others.
Using the theme this year of 'One Kind Word' we'll be creating a new display to share our words with the school.
Year 6 spent the week preparing an assembly for the school to learn about remembrance day. Have a listen below to the poetry we learnt to recite for the school.

We were lucky enough to have a visit from CNC. They showed us their kit, talked to us about their day to day work. We had a chance to sit in the car and even had a demonstration from the police dogs.
We had such a great time taking part in the Lego workshop this week. We were set challenges by an engineer to create some Lego bridges. We had the opportunity to be civil engineers, to develop time management and even manage a financial budget.
We were very grateful to Alex Hill a local engineer to talk to us about his job.
Chinese Taster Session
We were lucky enough to have a visit from the Chinese teacher at St Bees school who taught us some basic Chinese phrases.
We learnt how to say hello, goodbye and thank you as well as learning how to ask someone their name and how to respond. We even got to sing a song and make a Chinese lantern as well.

Healthy Living Week
As part of healthy living week, groups of year 5 and 6 children volunteered to lead wake and shake for the whole school followed by a cool down. We are super proud of all the leaders.
We had a visit from the local firefighters. They gave a talk about fire safety especially at home and then showed us their specialist fire suits. Then we went outside and they showed us round the fire engine. They showed the children all the equipment then everyone had a turn at using the fire hose which was great fun!
