We have had an amazing day exploring our networks! We have learnt the importance of not having our networks from the same place and having a wide range of people that we can choose from. This allows us to make sure that we are safe and have someone to talk to in any given situation. We also explore safe and unsafe secrets. We looked at the difference and now know which secrets are okay to keep and when it is not okay to keep a secret.
Enjoy the pictures from today 😊
Today we have focussed on early warning signs and our safe place. We all have a safe place that we can go to when we feel a certain way and this allows us to feel calm, peaceful and safe. Everyone has different safe places and everyone has different early warning signs. We now know that this is okay because we are all different and we are all unique!

This week is Taking Care week. We have a lot of interesting things to do this week and we will be learning how we can keep ourselves safe.
Our playground and roof is having a lot of work done to it to enable us to have astro-turf and a new roof! As a result of this, we need to be very careful when on the playground as parts will be sectioned off and there is also scaffolding around the school.
Today, we explored our rights, responsibilities and feelings. We had a lovely group discussion and understood that yes we may have rights but with them we also have responsibilities. For example, we all have the right to free speech. However, we have the responsibility to understand what we our saying and the impact it may have on other people.
Keep looking at our page to follow our journey through safety week.
We have had a fantastic week looking at aspects of anti-bullying. We have explored how everyone is different AND THAT'S OKAY! We have focussed on empathising with others and how we should follow God's path by living life alongside the quote "Love one another as I have loved you". If everyone is kind to everyone then the world will be peaceful and joyful.
Today, we have focussed on cyber bullying as an extension from our learning yesterday.
We have used this website to gain information http://www.ebeat.org.uk/images/Cyberbullying_-_My_Pod_Cyberbullying_Activity_(PDF).pdf
Cyber-Bullying Aims of Activity 1. To give children an understanding of what cyber-bullying is 2. To be able to identify incidents of cyber-bullying
It allowed us to watch informative mini videos, leading onto strong, mature conversations.
We now are fully aware that these are the tips to success against beating cyber-bullying. We have displayed out new knowledge in the form of a news article.
Don't reply: to messages that are meant to upset you. This is likely to make the
Keep the message: you don't have to read it, but show it to a grown up you trust
who can record it and keep it as evidence
Report problems: don’t put up with it, take control and report it to a teacher,
Block the sender: get help to block the sender of upsetting messages
Tell someone you trust. Talking to your parents, friends, a teacher, youth
leader is usually the first step in dealing with any issue.
Respect yourself and respect others - being online is very public and very
real. Be in control, be yourself
We have had a fantastic start to this half term! Miss Noone is very proud of how we have settled back into school and we are looking forward to this lead up to Christmas!
This week we have started our new exciting topic of geometry in maths! W have been exploring properties of 3D shapes and have gained a lot of knowledge through practical learning!
See the pictures below to look at how we used multi-link cubes to practically support our learning journey.
We have had a very exciting end of the half term in Year 5! Firstly, we received a visit from Firemen and we remembered their visit from year 1. It was lovely to see them again and some of s even got our photo taken to help promote their new comic strip! We furthered our knowledge on fire safety and now are fully aware of how to keep safe.
This week we have also ventured out of the school grounds, all the way to Nuneaton Museum and Art Gallery. Miss Noone was very impressed with our behaviour and we represented the school well. The exhibition that we went to was based on Forces and there were lots of practical experiments to aid our learning. As the groups swapped, we got the opportunity to explore the rest of the Museum and this enabled us to further our learning.
We are now ready for a good rest to prepare for the lead up to Christmas!
