Happy Safer Internet Day!

All of the staff would like to wish the pupils, parents and carers a Happy Safer Internet Day!

There are lots of exciting activities lined up for the children today, all helping to deliver the theme of this year’s Safer Internet Day – “Create, connect and share respect”.

Don’t forget that our school website has lots of fantastic information on how you can help to keep children safe online when at home, including our excellent guide on setting up parental controls. For those who may have missed it when we first posted it before Christmas, here is a link to this essential guide!

We hope that all of the children will come home full of enthusiasm on how to stay safe online. Keep an eye on the blog today, as I know that all of the teachers will be keen to share some of the amazing work that the children will create today!

Year 4 Visit to Chester

Year 4 had a fantastic visit to the DEWA Roman Experience in Chester yesterday.

The children took part in a Roman Solider patrol, learning all about the military tactics used by the Romans, as well as the armour and weaponry that was used to help the Roman Empire conquer so much of Europe. We visited the Amphitheatre and learnt more about gladiatorial combat and also visited the museum to learn more about Roman life. We found out about food, medicine, the bath houses and more before seeing all of the fantastic archaeological evidence that has been found in Chester. The children were brilliant ambassadors for our school and received many compliments from the staff at DEWA. Well done Year 4!

A reminder for parents/carers of Year 4 children

Can all parents/carers of Year 4 children please ensure that children arrive at school for 8:15am tomorrow morning (October 31st). The Year 4 children have their trip to the DEWA centre in Chester, and we need to leave school before 8:30am. Please take your child to the front entrance of school (The main office entrance).

Thank you for your co-operation.

Year 4 learn about Digital Citizenship

Year 4 created some fantastic Tellagami videos to share the message about being a responsible digital citizen. We thought about how to be a good citizen in our local community before thinking about online communities. The children had fantastic ideas about how to make the internet a better place, and how to keep themselves and others safe online. Below is an example of one of the many excellent videos created by the children.

 

 

Do you have any ideas on how to be a good citizen? Share them with us below!

Year 4’s Spectacular Seascapes!

Year 4 have been hard at work since our visit to Llandudno.

 

The children have been using their knowledge of scale, perspective and blending colours to create fantastic sketches based on a photograph taken during our visit. The children voted on their favourite image – The Great Orme, and then all sketched their impression of it.

 

The following video shows the children rightfully proud in sharing their work with you. Fantastic work for the final time this year! Great job Year 4, and best of luck for next year!

Year 4’s visit to Llandudno

On Thursday 6th July, Year 4 visited the seaside town of Llandudno!

In support of our Geography and Art topics, the children had a fantastic time exploring the sea front, pier, and both sand and shingle beaches. We sketched some of the fantastic views for our Coastal Landscapes topic, discussed similarities and differences between Llandudno and Longton and enjoyed a chance to shop on the pier and play on the beach.

The children were brilliantly behaved throughout the day, and the weather was brilliant for us all day. It was definitely a highlight of the year, and a great reward for all of the hard work that the children have put in this year.

Below is a video showing what we got up to. We hope that you enjoy it!

Mr Hunt’s class delivered their assembly this morning to promote National Healthy Eating Week. The children shared some of the fantastic work that we have been doing over the last few weeks, including creating our own dream menus, completing questionnaires about our food habits, graphing the results, cooking our own healthy pizzas and writing up how to make them!

For anybody who would like to make their own pizzas, the video below will show you how!

A huge thank you to all of the parents, carers and friends who attended to support the children this morning.

Finally, a massive WELL DONE to all of the children who spoke clearly and confidently to deliver a great message for Healthy Eating Week. You were superstars!
