As well as working hard academically, Chestnuts have also enjoyed being outdoors. They’ve been exploring lots of different places such as the beach, Hadrian’s wall and Jesmond Dene. On VE Day, Chestnuts enjoyed their own celebrations and afternoon teas. Some of them have even been litter picking, camping in the garden, fishing, seeing the 4:30am sunrise and strawberry picking. Well done Chestnuts!
Blueberries have been up to some fantastic things whilst being at home. Learning, housework, cooking, bike rides to name a few! Well done Blueberries.
Chestnuts have been working incredibly hard at home since lock down started back in March. They have been working through their work packs, creating some amazing art work, bringing their learning to life by planting and studying plants, researching their own projects and learning some life skills such as baking. They have been absolute stars.
Here are some fantastic photographs to show you all what Hawthorns have been up to during lock down…
THINKUKNOW have teamed up with Ukie (The Association for UK Interactive Entertainment) to give you advice about online games and chat.
While playing games online is often great fun, it’s important you understand why your children will chat online, what risks there are and what measures you can take to protect them while they’re playing their favourite games.
Online games are really popular amongst children. 59% of 5-15 year old’s play online games, as games like Fortnite, Minecraft and Roblox become increasingly important part of their social lives.
While playing games online is often great fun and a good way to chat, there is a chance that your children will play with people they don’t know who may use in-game chat inappropriately to expose them to harm or risk.
That’s why THINKUKNOW have put together this guide to help you understand why your children will chat online, what risks there are and what measures you can take to protect them while they’re playing their favourite games.
Just look at all the things we have been doing during Lockdown. There are almost too many to count!
Some highlights include:
Making a pond from scratch
Baking Thurson’s secret flapjacks
Becoming a big sister to twins!
Finally earning Black Karate Reader bands!
Sending each other letters (including your teacher)
Rescuing a blind hamster (now called Rainbow)
Doing the Great North Solo challenge
and so, so, so, so many more…
Thank you for all the amazing messages, pictures, hard work and effort you have shown during lockdown. You make me proud to be your teacher.
The boys in Cherries have been working and playing hard at home while school is closed. As well as completing their work tasks, they have been trying hard to improve their life skills and independence, doing household chores, cooking with family, decorating the house, working in the garden – they have been really busy! It’s good to have the time to develop those skills important to everyone as they grow up, and I’ve been really proud hearing how the boys are looking after themselves too – getting dressed, cleaning teeth, preparing their own snacks – the list goes on!
