In Family Groups today, Mr Burdon's groups thought about how to be kind with a camera. We talked about how pictures get shared on websites automatically. We talked about how quickly that can happen, and how we take and use photos with permission. We need to be careful and kind with the cameras we use. Here are some of the fun shots we took:



We were thinking about the Winter Olympics in Assembly today, and Mr Simmons shared a few thoughts about a trip to Russia.

Thinking about special achievements, Angus shared his 25 metres swimming award.


Star Awards this week were awarded to:

Thomas, Hannah, Darcie, Tabitha, Holly, Aaron, Prewa, Poppy, Elizabeth, Lucy and Emma

Thanks to those children who played percussion during our singing today.




We composed some rocket music today. Look at the picture. Can you hear the engines? Can you hear the rocket going up? Can you hear the stars? Can you hear the aliens in space?

We all thought about Chinese New Year in Assembly today. We will be finding out more during the week, and celebrating this special day on Friday.



We used the Pic Collage iPad App in Family Groups today to record what everyone else was doing. Isobel and Oliver were the group leaders.
