World Book Day Message From Mrs Sollom (28/2/19)

We are all very excited about World Book Day on Thursday 7th March.

The children are invited to dress up as their favourite book character. The children will be asked to share who they are and which story they are from, as well as why they like this character or story. It would be lovely if the children could bring in the book their character is from if possible (please ensure these are labelled with your child’s name).

Staff are busy thinking about their favourite characters and story from their childhood and we will be holding  “Story time at St. Nics”on Thursday. All the staff have chosen a story and the children will choose which story they would like to hear and then go along to hear it read by a particular adult.

During the week we will also be reading and carrying out activities based around our chosen book “Woolf” by Alex Latimer. A wonderful story about being proud of who you are; respecting how we are all different and acceptance.  

World Book Day tokens will be sent out this week. Please use these at our book fair for £1 off against the purchase price of the books on offer.

Safer Internet Day 2019 

A big thank you to Mr Gough who provided a fabulous Internet Safety session with parents this week in school.   The session was attended by a small number of parents who found it really valuable (see testimonials below).   I will ask Mr Gough to re-run this in the future in the hope that more families access it. Mr Gough is a trained CEOPambassador (Child Exploitation Online Protection) and is here to support any parents with individual queries if ever they have them.


Parent A

I attended the above workshop hosted by Mr Gough on the 5th February. 
I found the presentation and content fabulous, Mr Gough talked us through the dangers of apps, games, privacy settings, new apps which are targeted at the teenage  years, but also the positives on the internet and how it can enrich children’s learning and knowledge base. 
I can’t thank you enough for providing this workshop for parents to discuss their own experiences and help others. 

I highly recommend that all parents attend this or similar workshops as it was so beneficial to myself and the others parents who attended. 

Parent B 

Just wanted to let you know how useful I found the meeting this morning and ask if you can pass on my thanks to Mr Gough for presenting the information to us. 
Also thank you to the Year 3 children who demonstrated their skills on the Purple Mash website for us. 
I really feel I came away from the session with a greater understanding of the potential risks but also useful advice in keeping my child as safe as possible when online.
