Online Safety Days
Create, Connect and show Respect
Miss Pool organised an Online Safety Day on 6/2/18 to raise awareness of Respect on the internet and how to keep safe. Parents were asked to contribute by writing down how they wanted a better safe world online (see the fab comments made on the Jigsaw Sheet left hanging out on the yard for parents to contribute to in the mornings)
We linked our school values of caring, respect, responsibility, honesty to how we can demonstrate these online.
Each class made a HUGE jigsaw to piece together how we can all make our online activities safer and happier.
Children in the juniors got the opportunity to share with staff any concerns they have about their time online. This shows great responsibility and honesty- well done!
What a great day showing CREATE, CONNECT & RESPECT!
STEM Science Challenge
Miss Roe led a STEM science challenge for parent, staff and children teams. The Challenge was to build the tallest tower made out of spaghetti and marshmallows! Well done Christopher and Sam Green who won the tallest tower (with the help from Mum and Dad!) Check out the photos here...
Keep Safe Week
From February 5th to the 9th Huncoat ran a 'Keep safe Week' as well as online safety we looked at Road Safety, how to keep safe crossing roads, how to keep safe when out and about and we tried to ask parents and taxi drivers to Keep us Safe near school and when parking at school.
The Pupil Parliament have sent posters off made by everyone to be made into a banner to put up outside school and Year 5 conducted a traffic survey.
