Online Safety, by Mr Pearson

Date: 3rd Mar 2021 @ 4:59pm

The online world offers amazing opportunities but also brings elements of potential risk and for Parents, making sense of the online world can appear to be an enormous challenge.  Unlike previous generations, the online environment is an integral part of children’s lives and therefore we can no longer consider their wellbeing or safety without also considering their relationship to technology.  However, staying safe online is fundamentally about behaviours rather than the technology itself and if approached from this perspective, we can begin to gain confidence to support our children. 

The link below provides some useful tips for Parents when discussing the online environment with children.  In addition, this page also contains a variety of resources which can be used to develop knowledge and confidence to support children.  You will also find useful information in the news and events section of the site through the link at the bottom of the page.

Marshmallows everywhere., by Mrs Catterall

Date: 1st Nov 2020 @ 7:27pm

Thank you to everyone who supported our enterprise.  We made over 230 marshmallow kebabs for you all to enjoy.

The children get to decide what to do with their profit.  Half will go to charity (exact one yet to be decided) the rest has been spent on Christmas sewing kits and magnets for a Christmas science and DT project.  If there is any left we are going to buy more books for our class library.

Year 3 Enterprise, by Mrs Catterall

Date: 5th Oct 2020 @ 9:40pm

Year 3 are going to be holding their enterprise activity on Friday 16th October.

This year we will be doing things a bit differently as we can't all gather to buy our marshmallows from the quad.

We have decided to use an ordering system.  Your child will bring home an order slip.  If you wish to order any marshmallow kebabs please complete the slip and return with the money in a sealed envelope to your class teacher by this Friday, 9th October.

Next Friday the children will make the kebabs and put them in named bags and deliver them to your child's class ready for them to take home.

Thank you

Week of Planning, by Miss Reynolds

Date: 30th Apr 2020 @ 12:59pm

Hello lovely Bongos!

A parent has just brought to my attention that the work for this week never uploaded onto Seesaw, so I've uploaded all the files you need here in a dropbox file instead because it's too big to upload directly to the blog. You can upload work that you'd like me to see to Seesaw, but you by no means have to put it all on there. I will give as much feedback as I can, so if you send clear pictures or videos, I will try to get back to you ASAP. If you have any issues at all, don't forget you can always contact me on the bongos email address on weekdays between 9-12.

Hope you're all keeping safe and happy!
