Residential Day 4

Hi,

Well, somehow we have managed to dodge the torrential rain and have had another fun-packed day. A few team exercises saw the children creating shelters before attempting to make rope. They then completed a STEM project where they had to plan, build and present a design and project of their own in a Dragon’s Den style exercise.

The afternoon was more physical with low ropes, assault course and fencing on the agenda.

All this after a smoke filled evening, last night, around the camp fire.

Residential Day 3

Hi,

Well, so far we have just about managed to miss the worst of the showers. Let’s hope this continues for tonight’s camp fire.

Last night everyone seemed to be asleep by 10:30 and were reluctant to wake up this morning!

We’ve had another fun packed day with activities including: Craft skills, Aeroball, Jacob’s Ladder, crate stacking and orienteering to name but a few.

Residential Day 2

Hi,

After a relatively quiet night in which some children achieved some sleep, we have had another busy day. Archery, zipline, fire building, scavenger hunting, problem solving, nightlining and rock climbing were all on the agenda.

Some of the children are starting to look a little more tired than last night!

Residential Day 1

The children are now starting to settle into their new environment. After a familiarisation walk they sorted themselves out in their dorms and soon learnt how to make a bed. A couple of activities before tea and a couple more this evening before they hopefully settle down.

Year 6 Residential Information

Please find attached information that has been handed out to your child for the Year 6 residential. Attached is also the presentation for parents giving an overview of the centre.

Although it may be warm on the residential, all children will need long sleeve tops  and trousers (not shorts) to participate in a majority of the activities. (In the past some children who have not had the appropriate clothing have not been able to participate in all the activities.)

We strongly recommend that children wear old clothes and new clothes are only bought for the residential if your child does not already have the appropriate clothing.

Please return the behaviour contracts handed out to your child after half-term .

Many thanks

Mr Chiverton

Weekly Update

Class 8 and 9 have worked very hard this week and I am sure you have been able to see just how hard they are working from seeing their books on parents’ evening. Thank you to everyone who came. It was great to speak to you about your child’s progress and comments in general.

In PSHE this half term we have been looking at how we interact with each other online and how this can sometimes be problematic.

For many of us, we see our online lives and offline lives as different, but children are growing up with technology and the internet and for them there isn’t a difference; online life and offline life is just life.

Technology can move at an extraordinarily fast pace and it can be difficult to know how to start talking to your child about what they’re doing online, who they might be speaking to or discussing the potential risks and issues.

Talking regularly with your child is the greatest tool to help keep them safe online. Talking regularly and making it part of daily conversation, like you would about their day at school, will help your child feel relaxed. It also means when they do have any worries, they’re more likely to come and speak to you.

But it can also be easy to become overwhelmed with the different technology, the language that children use, the huge number of games and apps which are available and the potential risks.

Whilst most children are responsible online, I have been made aware that some online conversations between the children are not always as pleasant as when they are talking face to face.

The age restriction for WhatsApp in the UK is 13. If children are accessing this app it might be worth while having a conversation with your child on how they are using the app. Some conversations are going to be more difficult than others, but it’s so important to have these open and honest conversations, so you can help your child with any worries or issues they might be facing online.

For example, if you’re worried they have seen upsetting, inappropriate or content, or perhaps being bullied. These more difficult conversations will heighten feelings of fear, anxiety, worry, shame and embarrassment.

Our Crime and punishment topic is proving popular as the children continue to explore different forms of punishment throughout history.

The children have continued their work in Science investigating light. Next week, and linked to this, the children will be exploring a range of more complicated switches as part of their D&T work.

To help with any misunderstanding regarding fractions I have included some video links on this weeks homework.

Homework week ending 01.04.2022

Have a good weekend,

Mr Chiverton, Mrs Duncan
