This week in Y5 ….. (w/b 4th June)

On Wednesday, your child behaved impeccably during their trip to Cranbourne.  The activities in the Taster Morning varied from RE to Science and Food Tech to Hair and Beauty.  It was lovely to have some parents able to join us too – thank you!  We’ll see Cranbourne twice more this term with some maths lessons (once at KFJ and once at their school). 

In computing this half term, the children are learning how to blog using WordPress.  What we do in school will only be able to be viewed in school.  However, the children will have the skills to blog on their own devices at home.  We obviously talk about the safety needed around putting thoughts and ideas on the web for others to read.

A lot of time was spent this week supporting children in dealing with issues that had started online (WhatsApp, gaming) outside of school time. Please be aware that children chatting as a group can be great fun but can quickly turn sour e.g. ‘kicking’ someone from a group. And of course, reading something unkind just before bed is not ideal.
