Atoms Education CIC is a Community Interest Company who is a provider of educational workshops that help children to develop a range of skills in a practical context. Their workshops cover a range of experiences that are designed to develop key life skills, aspirations, positive mental and physical health and a love of learning. They have produced a leaflet advertising a range of different webinars for both adults and children to enjoy. The webinars range in topics which are based on science, art, baking, music and story time. We hope that you will be able to enjoy the webinars and get some fabulous ideas on how to relax with your little ones while having fun! Webinar dates and times can be found on the leaflet above.
During Covid-19 our Children and Young People may have been spending more time than usual online or on gaming devices.
It can be hard for parents, grandparents, teachers and carers to keep up with the latest games, apps and social media. To help with this, the NSPCC site http://www.net-aware.org.uk provides important information on the activities your children may be undertaking.
On the main screen there is a search box, simply key in the name of the particular game, App or social media and it will give you a summary of what it is, identify any risks and explain how you can take simple steps to make things safer.
It also includes useful information such as:
- Age rating
- An expert view of the risks
- Top tips for usage
- Top tips for staying safe
We said a fond farewell to one of our longest-serving staff members at the end of this term. Just like our Year 6 leavers, Mrs Wigham was presented with her very own hoodie, as well as many other gifts. She will be a great miss, although she has promised to come back and see us all in September. We wish her the very best for a long and happy retirement.
If you are missing not having School Sports Day this year, there is a Virtual School Games Day being held this Friday 3rd July. For more information about how to enter, visit our PE Blog. All bubbles in school are taking part, so join in the fun and help earn points for our school.
In school we have been busy making our very own key workers to celebrate all the important work they are doing! We thank each and every key worker out there!
