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.

For me the highlights of this week have been two days on Dartmoor with Year 6 and joining a class for their P4C (Philosophy for Children) lesson, debating the question they raised after hearing a short story Is it ever OK to kill an animal?

This week has included for the children gig rowing, a beach clean (an astonishing 79kg of waste collected!), a trip to Quince Honey Farm to learn all about bees and classes participating in World Fitness Day. Add to this our weekly visit to Donnigton House care home and our weekly visit from Northam care Trust to work with our children in the art studio and a class from St Margaret's School using our art space and art expertise. So not much then!
