We are still making our day healthy by running around the playground to complete our “1 mile per day challenge” which we are all really enjoying. We are skipping as well and trying to beat our personal bests (PB).
In our plan to reinvigorate our lunch times we have been teaching everyone a clapping game that they can do in lunch times– a video of this is on Facebook and Twitter so that you can see as well with your children. We will be posting these up regularly as a resource for reference. We are also on the process of appointing our “dining hall leaders” in year 5.
Again on the topic of dinner times– in order to think about “ saving the planet” a useful tip is if your child takes a packed lunch is: wrapping sandwiches in tin foil rather than cling film which is a single use plastic is much better for the environment and is an easy tip to follow– in some cases the foil can be used again if the children fold it nicely and bring it home or of course it is easily recyclable.
On the home page of our school website there is a button for parents and children to click from CEOP Children Exploitation and Online Safety which is a body connected to the National Crime Agency if you have a concern about any online activity that you have come across which is making you or your child feel uncomfortable. The operative from CEOP will call you back and chat through the options regarding further action. There is also access to some online resources from a site called ThinkUKnow which is linked to CEOP with resources for you to use at home for any primary school aged child from the age of 4 up to help you ensure that your child is safe whilst on line.
We cover this in class as well but parents and carers need to know too– click on the green link and have a look this week at the resources which cover keeping your 5 year old safe on line, through to parental controls and even the perils of gaming on line. https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/jessie-and-friends/ . Its well worth a look
