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.

Emerald Class Spring 1 Homework

To be completed in your homework books, or stuck in when printed out.

 In class we are asking the children to write using a variety of sentence types. Simple, compound and complex sentences should all be evident in their writing. This homework is intended to provide a way of practising this independently.

 Week 1

Research the polar bear, investigate its habitat, the temperature and conditions it usually lives in, diet, where it hunts and any other general information you can find out about it. Then use this information to create a fact file in your book – remember to use headings, sub-headings, bullet points, pictures, questions and a variety of sentence types.

Week 2

Climate change means the environment the polar bear lives in may be under threat in the future. Research what climate change might mean for the polar bears. How can we slow down climate change? What can we do to help the polar bear?

Week 3

Write a diary entry from the polar bear explaining how it feels about what is happening to its environment. Each year the ice is melting earlier making it harder for the bears to build up reserves to last through the winter, making it harder for the bears to hunt and also forcing them to swim longer distances in order to find food.

Week 4

Design the front page for a newspaper reporting on the polar bears, climate change and what is happening to them. Remember to use headlines, pictures and simple, compound and complex sentences in your report. Make the headline catchy in order to grab people’s attention.

Week 5

If the world gets warmer and the polar ice caps melt, more of the world will be under water and we may have more extreme weather happening around the world. Animals adapt and evolve within their environment. How could the polar bear evolve in order to survive in a world with no ice or snow? Draw a labelled diagram of how the polar bear might need to change – use your imaginations and have some fun with this!

Playground activities

 

Hello

Our school playground will be changing soon! 

Last year you and the School Council raised money to have some new equipment. 

As part of this we will have an outdoor store to keep playtime equipment in.

What do you think we need to store in here?

Please try to think of things that you would like but also things that other children i.e. younger children, would enjoy.
