On the 10th of March year 4, 5 and 6 we had World Book Day finally after all the snow. Our theme was Harry Potter and during the day we split into house and took part in Quiddich, Potions, Charms, Care of magical Creatures and Divination lessons. We also had a house cup competition! It was very close but finally Hufflepuff came out as the winners with 121 points. Everyone had a magical day including the teachers!
This Friday in year 5 we had our assembly about Chinese New Year. In the assembly we saw the great reace happening as our reporter in the field Imane travelled back in time. We also let people try Chinese New Year dumplings. Some loved them; Others were less keen. Finally we had a dragon dance around the hall to celebrate the occasion.
07/02/2018 – Cyber bulling
PSCO Sam visited our class today to discuss cyber bullying. We talked about what cyber bullying is and how we can help stop it. We discussed new laws that have been introduced to help prevent online bullying and spent time talking about how we can make the internet a friendlier and safer place.
Today we had a visit from PSO Sam. She came in to talk to us all about being safe online. We learnt a great deal about cyberbullying and how to be safe.
National Media Museum
Last week year 5 visited the National Media Museum. While we were there we were able to take part in many of the amazing exhibitions that are there. We all enjoyed exploring the wonder lab and seeing all the amazing things that happen to our sense. In addition, our visit to they wonder studio was amazing; especially setting off a model rocket. However, the highlight of our trip was seeing Tim Peake’s space capsule. The day was great fun so make sure you go!
On Wednesday, we were visited by Community support officer Sam. Sam spoke to us about cyber safety and how to keep ourselves safe online. She shared strategies for staying safe online and ensuring we are responsible online citizens. If you would like more information about cyber bullying please visit our website: http://www.atlasprimary.co.uk/e-safety/ for more.
On Friday, we were visited by Mr Khan, who works with the charity Kashmiri Orphan Relief Trust (KORT). KORT started to raise money in October 2005 after an earthquake hit Kashmir during the month of Ramadan. Over 3.5 million people were left homeless by the earthquake and many children were left as orphans after family members had been killed. The charity began to raise money for orphans and founded the largest orphanage in Asia to ensure they are kept safe and are educated to a high standard. After listening to Mr Khan, we made products to sell in our charity fair on Friday 6/10/17. Please come an join us.
