We have registered to take part in the Annual Safer Internet day, next February. Online Safety is embedded in the pupils’ curriculum throughout the year, however this is a day for global celebration. It provides an opportunity to focus on all aspects of staying safe online. We use resources from the UK Safer Internet Centre to create a meaningful and fun day to remind our pupils how to stay safe when using the internet. They also provide resources for parents and carers to support their child whilst using the internet at home. https://www.saferinternet.org.uk/advice-centre/parents-and-carers
The pupils have been loving making music with our new music trail in the playground. It is equipped with a variety of music making instruments such as drums and bells. We would like to thank Ian Maidens and Peter Whiteley for their kind donations which have enabled us to fund this.
Lessons and learning are back in full swing at Quest! We also welcome some new pupils this term.
We have got some new exciting equipment for the playground! A new music trail for the pupils to explore lots of different sounds. We look forward to their return this September.
The pupils have been participating in an Under the Sea Theme Day. They have made an under water sensory bottle, have practiced their aiming skills by throwing bean bags into a shark’s mouth and have made lots of under the sea craft.
We wish everyone a lovely Summer break and hope for a return to normality in September!
