Today P6/7 had PC Cook in to talk about internet safety. We discussed going online, how we use the internet and some of the risks. We watched a video based on a real life story about using the internet. We discussed the risks the boy in the video took, and what the legal implications would be. We were surprised at some of the legal ages for using social media – we didn’t know you had to be 16 to have WhatsApp!
PC Cook gave us an important piece of advice to follow for any device. He recommended that no one should have any devices in their bedroom. His reasoning is that anyone of any age is more likely to break the rules behind closed doors – which we all agreed was true!
On Friday, P3 were working with some students from RGU to play rugby. We played different games as a team. This meant, we had to listen carefully to the instructions and communicate well with our team mates. Also, we were learning how to pass the ball to our partner and for our partner to catch it. We became more confident the more we practised. Over the next few weeks, we are looking forward to learning about different sports.
Today P6/7 were working with RGU students who were teaching them Rugby. Overall, there was a lot of running around and everyone enjoyed themselves! We were playing games about improving our passing skills about trying to keep the ball off the other team, and everyone was scoring touchdowns.
Tracks on the ground outside the P1 classroom can only mean one thing… Arnold is back! This time with a a sad story about his friend falling off a bridge in the park. His poor friend ended up in pieces, so our challenge was to put his skeleton friend back together.
Our challenge was to work in groups to build his friend skeleton, making sure we put the bones in all the correct places. We had a guide to help us. We all worked so well in our teams.
Look how hard we worked! We are almost there. Arnold will be so happy that he has his friend pieced together again!
We were so proud we managed to make his friend – yeah!
We celebrated with a skeleton dance called “Dem Bones, Dem Bones, Dem Dancing Bones.”
