In English we have been reading, The Dragon Machine. It is a story about a boy called George who sees dragons everywhere. We have gathered lots of ideas, and so far have written a letter, a report and are about to write instructions. Here is our fantastic work so far and a sneak peek at our working wall.
This week, the children have been involved in eSafety sessions.
Firstly, thank you to all of the parents who attended these sessions. It is important that the children are aware of these issues and seeing parents at these sessions, makes it clear that the messages we give at school are also being talked about at home.
They have been reminded of the importance to stay safe online and to tell our trusted adults if we see or hear anything online that upsets us or anything that makes us feel sad, angry or worried.
I therefore have some further information for you regarding this important issue. Safer Internet Advice to Parents. This information helps parents with what to do if your child sees something upsetting online.
It has been made explicitly clear to the children that if they are unsure about anything, or worried, scared, lonely or upset, they should tell one of their trusted adults at home or school to try to help them out. I hope the information above and the links which are included in that post are useful in dealing with the sometimes difficult conversations that can come up if children do see or hear anything which they shouldn’t, online.
Below, you will find links to the quiz which was used in the sessions, along with the answers to these questions. I hope you find these useful. The children should know the answers, as they have been more fully explained during the eSafety sessions.

If you have any questions or queries relating to the eSafety sessions which have taken place this week, please do not hesitate to find Mr Higginbotham around school.
Today the children watched a pantomime telling the story of ‘Sleeping Beauty’. It was great fun warning the characters about the villains in the story and joining in with all the story as it was told.
Today we tried our bread. Most of us liked it but some of us were unsure. As we were eating, we took another look at the photographs from baking and evaluated our work.
One table said, “Next time we’ll use less buttermilk. It was too sticky and hard to roll.”
Another table said, “We measured the ingredients carefully and our bread was easy to roll.”
Look at us eating the bread, can you tell if we’re enjoying it or not?
This afternoon in Guided Reading we looked at a non-fiction book about, The Great Fire of London. The illustrations (pictures) in the text are very detailed and today, we used them to understand feelings and look at our inference skills. We looked at a zoomed in picture and wrote warnings for the people of 1666. Take a look at the picture and watch our videos.
Here are our videos.
