Dan the Skipping Man.

In our sports week we had the opportunity to explore the world of Para-Sport. These included, blind athletics, where you run in tandem with one of the pair blindfolded. Sitting Volley ball where you bum is not allowed to leave the floor and finally goal ball. Everyone was blind folded and had to listen out for the ball which contained a bell. As a consequence everybody had to be quiet. The silence was golden!

Please drop any materials at the office.


Don't forget to discuss with your child about their design and why they choose that one.

Acceptance - In Year 3 we have been looking at what could be the consequences of accepting strangers friend requests within games, e-mail messages (no matter how interesting they look!) or picture messages from people that you don’t know. We discussed that these requests could contain harmful things like virus, that lead to expensive repair bills for our big people. Additionally, accepting requests might lead to our computers being hacked and precious items being taken from us. In groups we created short play scripts that we then enjoyed sharing in front of the class. I hope you have as much fun reading then as we did writing them
