How To Blog Safely…

A blog can be very exciting, it allows people from all over the world to read our work and make comments. We need to remember to follow a few simple rules to stay safe and to get the most out of our blog.

  • Children are to only use their first name when commenting.
  • Parents who leave comments are asked to use their first name only so as not to identify their child. Or post comments as “Harry’s Mum” or “Megan’s Grandfather”.
  • All posts will be checked by school staff before they are published to the blog.
  • All comments are moderated by school staff before they appear on the blog.
  • Always be respectful for other people’s work – be positive if you are going to comment.
  • No text talk – write in full sentences and read your comments back carefully before submitting.

These rules should help to make the blog a safe and exciting home for our work.

Click on the picture above to go to the ThinkYouKnow website and meet Hector, Lee and Kim and play a whole host of e safety games with information about how to stay safe online for children, parents and teachers including where to go if you need help.

Elterwater Day Two

Day Two sees us split into two groups and set off on low level walks with expansive views of the Lake District, on a clear day, and Gill Scrambling. Gill Scrambling is a step up from the Scrambling of Ingleborough – this is full on climbing up a Gill in full flow and is amazing to be a part of. The children really challenge themselves and are so satisfied to have completed the day. Later in the evening we will visit the Mountain Rescue Centre for a talk about the work they do and we get to use the equipment and see the vehicles. 


Year 6 Residential to Elterwater 2018

Elterwater residential always figures highly in the end of year memories for children and is a real stand out experience for the children. On day one alone we have sailed on Windermere, kayaked, paddle boarded, played in an adventure playground, made our own beds, been on a bat walk, eaten sticky toffee pudding and written diaries. Next up is hot chocolate before bedtime and then no doubt we will all fall straight to sleep! And that’s only day one, day two moves up a gear again.
