On Tuesday 26th September, Mr Higginbotham talked to us all about e-Safety.

We learned the four rules of Online Safety;

1. Keep your personal information safe online.
2. People you meet online are strangers.
3. Be kind to other people online, just like you would in the playground or classroom.
4. If you get that “Uh, oh” feeling in your tummy when you are online, tell an adult, straight away.

We watched the video to see Sid being an “Online Protector” for Lee and Kim, the children in the video.

Mr Higginbotham even gave us a rules sheet for Online Safety to take home. He told us to put it somewhere where we could keep looking at it to remind us of the rules for how to be safe online.

Don’t forget, we invite parents into our eSafety sessions once per term, so look out for a letter about the next one in the new year.

Our Local Walk

Last week, Year 1 and Year 2 went on a little walk around our local area for our topic, ‘Where Do I live?’ On the walk, we were focusing on how to get around and what it would look like on a map. When we got back, we began to write about our local area ready for an informative leaflet. Take a look at our walk and have a sneak peek at some of work!

International Peace Day

On 21st September for International Peace Day, children at Charlestown made their own pinwheels. We decorated them with symbols that linked to peace. In Team 3, we made them for each other. Take a look at the ones we ended up with – we loved them! Miss Denham popped in whilst we were handing them out and loved them too – see if you can spot her! What symbol is she making? What does it represent?

Mini Andy Goldsworthy!

Today in topic we learned about the artist, Andy Goldsworthy. We looked at some of his sculptures and learned all about how he uses nature to create his work. We had so much fun creating our own and learned lots!
