Big Night In - Thursday 23rd April
This Thursday to help celebrate BBC Ones 'Big Night In' the children in school will be making superhero masks.
If you are making superhero masks at home please send in your pictures and we will publish them on the website.
Funds raised on the night will be split equally between BBC Children in Need and Comic Relief to provide essential support to local charities, projects and programmes across the UK to help those most in need. This funding will not only provide vital emergency support to ensure vulnerable people of all ages are safe, warm and fed, but will also ensure that they are able to continue to learn, and stay connected in order to combat isolation and loneliness.
Looking for something fun to do during the Easter holidays? Why not take part in our Beat the Bug Spring Challenge? You can view it on our website, or download our activity sheet.
With a range of activities including crafts, wildlife fun and fitness goals, there's something for everyone. The challenge includes two suggested activities a day for two weeks - one indoor and one outdoor - so it's perfect even if you are self-isolating or shielding.
Everyone who completes at least seven of the activities will win a Spring Challenge certificate!
Good Morning everybody!
I hope that you are all well. I have created some more activities for you to do during the Easter holiday! I will be putting these on each day so remember to check the website! I hope you have lots of fun doing these! I'm really missing seeing you all at school and I can't wait until we are all back together. In the meantime, if you would like to send me pictures of you doing your activities I would love to see them and share them with your friends and teachers by publishing them on our school website. Please send your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Love from Kevin the Kindness Bear.

Online Safety for Children
Traci Good has released some YouTube clips aimed for parents to remind them of
the importance of engaging with their child/s online access during this time.
This will cover issues such as parental controls (and how to set them), which apps
have seen a surge in popularity since the pandemic, and age specific information
aimed at 0-5's, 6 - 11's and over 11's.
