The end of another busy week that ended with me being presented with a truly inspirational poem written by one of our Year 5 children, aged 9 years, on our whole school value for this term of Inclusion. It was thought provoking in a time when division appears to be on the rise in our society.

I would really love all of us to include every child and make sure they are never excluded
Never treat them differently and make sure everybody obeys by that rule.
Carefully offer to help and notice sad actions
Learn to be kind and polite and put in great effort to help
Use our personalities to make them feel brighter
Sit down next to them and let them speak out
Each year people struggle and being inclusive can help a lot
I'm sure our school is capable of this.

All classes have learnt about and aspects of our environment this half term and this week has involved the children sharing what they have learnt, including events such as an Eco themed harvest festival at St Mary's Church from years 3-6 and children in years 1 an 2 sharing everything they have learnt about bees. Do you know how to make a Bee Bomb or what a Waggle Dance is? If not, ask anyone in years 1 and 2!

I've taken children to two events the past couple of days and must say how inspirational they have been. Firstly, attending an environment Expo and being stunned by both the knowledge and passion of young children in this area for caring for their environment. Secondly, taking children to a VERY wet and cold cross country event today and not one moan. 

All in all a great way to end a half term!

A new BBC app to help young smartphone users navigate the online world safely and appropriately has launched in the UK. It is called "own It" and certainly worth investigating. Please read this artilce for more information.

The clever bit is that it features a special keyboard, which works across any app on the phone, and uses machine learning to recognise language that might suggest a child is in trouble. If the user's behaviour starts to stray outside the norm, the app will respond by offering the user help and advice, and encouraging them to talk to a trusted adult.For example, if a child types something which might be upsetting to the person receiving it, the app encourages them to consider how it could be perceived by others.
