Internet Safety Day

Tuesday 10th February 2015

Today is internet safety day. At Sir John Lillie we will be looking at this year’s theme of:

‘Let’s create a better internet together’

We all know how much we rely upon the internet for all sorts of things such as communicating with people, playing games, doing our home work, shopping….in fact the list is endless. But sometimes things can go wrong and in our classes we will be having discussions about what to do when we come across a problem using the internet.

What would you do if you came across one of these dilemmas?

  • You receive an email containing an upsetting image. What would you do?
  • You receive a message saying something mean about someone you know. What would you do?
  • You click on something by accident and it won’t go away. You’re worried that you may get in trouble. What do you do?
  • You have been chatting to someone on an online game for some time and they now suggest that you meet up. You have never met this person in real life. What would you do?
  • You have spent ages building your own creation town on your favourite online game. One day you log in only to find that your town has completely disappeared. Someone has obviously deliberately deleted everything. What do you do?

Why not share some of your ideas by posting it on our blog?

Update to Internet Safety Day.

Well what a great response we have had to internet safety day. Year 6 have posted some very insightful responses to how they will make the internet a better place. We have also had some very informative posters made to help children understand how to remain safe on the internet. Lower school really enjoyed the story of ‘Smartie’ the Penguin, who was able to help them understand how to be safe on the internet. Year 4 and 5 created some great logos about how to make the internet a better place. All of these things will be going on a display in the Learning Resource Centre. Well done to all who participated in this event and remember be SMART when using the internet!

LAMDA

Last academic year, our Years 3 & 4 pupils were entered for the LAMDA public examinations.  They performed in groups, working alongside our one of our school governors, Julia and her colleague Vivenne.

Throughout their work towards their exam the children had to learn by heart a poem or extract of a text and be able to recite this.  But not only do they have to recite this poem or piece of text, they had to work on their delivery.  They needed to ensure they spoke clearly, correctly and with emphasis.  And finally, in addition to all of that the had to add performance elements, such as actions.

We are so pleased to announce that all groups passed with a distinction – the highest grade possible!

Congratulations to all involved!

A huge thank you to Julia and Vivenne, as well as another of our governors, Matt Hogg who kindly made a donation, collected from his parishioners, to school in order for the children to participate in this project.

French song with actions

Last Friday in our French lesson we all had he chance to get outside and do some active learning in the playground. One of the things we did was learn a song with some actions. It was very similar to our ‘Do the Hokey Kokey’ song. If you want to have a go at learning it for yourself here are the words. 

 

 ‘Fais the Boogie Woogie’

Je mets le doigt devant
Je mets le doigt derrière
Je mets le doigt devant
Je fais de tous petits ronds
Je fais le boogie woogie
Je fais le tour de moi même
Et je vais en avant

Je mets la main devant
Je mets la main derrière
Je mets la main devant
Je fais de tous petits ronds
Je fais le boogie woogie
Je fais le tour de moi même
Et je vais en avant

Je mets le coude devant
Je mets le coude derrière
Je mets le coude devant
Je fais de tous petits ronds
Je fais le boogie woogie
Je fais le tour de moi même
Et je vais en avant

Je mets le genou devant

Je mets le genou derrière
Je mets le genou devant
Je fais de tous petits ronds
Je fais le boogie woogie
Je fais le tour de moi même
Et je vais en avant

Je mets le pied devant

Je fais de tous petits ronds
Je fais le boogie woogie
Je fais le tour de moi même
