Robertson’s Construction Session 1

Class 2 had an excellent morning learning all about the Construction Industry as part of our World of Work and DYW project.

Jade told us all about the importance of having a positive attitude as well as having the skills to do the job.  We learned a lot about working as a team and sticking to a deadline as we completed a tender form.   Our task for the client was to build a tower in the quickest time.  There were penalities and profits made.

We had a great time and thanks again to Jade at Robertson’s. We are excited about our visit to their site tomorrow.

Class 1- School Nurse Visit Today

Today Class 1 had a visit from Anna, our School Nurse, and her colleague Gemma. They talked to us about the importance of water when trying to keep healthy. We talked about how much water we should drink and why, the importance of hygiene (from our head to our toes!) and germs. We even used a special cream and lightbox to show how germs can spread, and how important it is to wash our hands thoroughly.

Thank you very much Anna and Gemma- it was a very informative day!

Internet Safety

This afternoon both classes came together to share their learning and knowledge about the importance of staying safe online.

Everyone worked very hard to think about what they are going to do, to ensure they are safe online. Some of their ideas are below-

  • Have strong passwords and change them regularly.
  • Limit the time spent online.
  • Always ask permission to buy something online through a game.
  • Only add friends that you know.
  • Never give out your password.
