Safer Internet Day 2019 followup | February 14, 2019

On Tuesday 5th February, Richard Avenue celebrated Safer Internet Day 2019. The aim of Safer Internet Day is to inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively.

This year we held individual lessons to both talk and demonstrate to the children how consent works in an online context.

We watched videos on the topics and then held question and answer sessions so the children could explore how to ask, give, and receive consent online. We finished off the sessions by asking the children to design posters and online chats that deal with the issues of consent.

Some of these posters and online chat designs are shown below:

Safer Internet Day 2019 | January 31, 2019

SID2019

On Tuesday 5th February, Richard Avenue will be celebrating Safer Internet Day 2019. The aim of Safer Internet Day is to inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively. Throughout the Day we will be holding a number of activities, including a whole school assembly and individual lessons to both talk and demonstrate to the children how consent works in an online context and will ask young people to explore how they ask, give, and receive consent online. This could be in their friendships or relationships, how they take and share images and videos or how they manage their privacy and data.

Here are some videos about the day aimed at different age groups:

Here is the campaign film for Safer Internet Day 2019 which we hope sums up clearly what the day is all about.
Zap and Zoom – A Space Race – film for 3-7 year olds.
Data Detective – film for 7-11 year olds.

The Great Fire of London Drama Workshop
The children take part in the drama workshop.

Year 2 have been learning about London and The Great Fire of London. Today the children took part in a drama workshop around The Great Fire of London. Children re-enacted the different methods used to try and put the fire out, such as using water squirts and leather buckets. They made still photographs in groups to show how people help or hindered London during and after the fire. Children also worked in teams using their bodies to create the shape of houses in 1666.

Year One trip to Diggerland.

On Tuesday 18th September Year 1 went on a visit to Diggerland in Durham to help support the learning of their current topic of ‘Construction’. All of the children (and staff) had an amazing time. They got to go on lots of rides and use real life diggers! At lunchtime they got back on the coach and went to Wharton Park where they had a picnic in the sunshine. It was a fantastic day!
