Safer Internet Day 2015

This Tuesday 10th February  was safer internet day. The digital leaders were very brave and did an assembly all about safer internet day. They did a quiz to test us on how much we new on safer internet day. We had to put thumbs up or thumbs down. It turns out that we know lots about the internet. In class we did some safer internet promises and lots of them had a lot of thought in them. Most of the children have already started doing their promises. The digital leaders, who did the assembly, were very nervous when they were doing the assembly. Even though we already knew lots about the internet ,the assembly that the digital leaders did has helped us understand even more.

2G created their own rap about safer internet day! They thought really carefully about what they were going to include in their rap. They then practised their rap a lot and used the iPads to record it. It was clear that they worked very hard and enjoyed doing it!

2G’s Class Assembly

2G performed their fantastic assembly today, about the Great Fire of London in 1666! They spoke loud and clear, and everyone learned lots about the disastrous fire in London, many many years ago.

They enjoyed their interesting visit from Alex Fellowes, playing the role of a witness of the great fire, and learned lots of fascinating things from him. 2G  did brilliant in their assembly, as well as having lots of fun telling everyone about their fantastic time.
