Year 4 – Internet Safety
Year 4 had the opportunity to go down TCS and watch a theatre group perform a play about Internet Safety. ‘In the Net’ was about a young girl called Dotty who wasn’t very safe. She then went on a journey meeting characters like Icon, Password, Uh-oh, Virus and Spam. These characters helped her escape the net and being safer whilst online.
Year 6 were visited this morning by some Year 7 students and Mrs Mayne, the head tutor for Year 7. They shared lots of information with us about TCS and answered our questions in preparation for our move to TCS.
We are most excited about the reward trips and the biometric payment system in the canteen!
Children who have been taking part in Mr Hardee’s gymnastic club were selected to represent the school in a competition against the other schools in the learning community at TCS.
The 22 children selected from year 3 and 4 all had to learn a floor routine including forward rolls, cartwheels and challenging balances such as arabesques. Furthermore, they had to perform a vault. All children were judged and their scores go towards their team’s total score.
It was mentioned by the organisers of the competition that the children were impeccably behaved setting a super example! Mr Hardee is extremely proud of them.
We we find out the results tomorrow so look out for the blog!
Fir class spent the day at TCS’s music department with 5 other schools in the learning community to take part in a music festival. This then prepared them for the evening performance in front of 100s of parents.
Leading up up to the event, Fir class have been learning the violins and have also spent time learning the songs for the mass-choir performance.
The children performed fantastically and even sang their own song ‘Another Day’ which they wrote in the Autumn term.
We are ver proud of everyone involved. Thank you to the parents who were very supportive. Hope you all enjoyed it!
Monkey Puzzle was very fortunate to be invited to the local sports learning community, gymnastics festival held at TCS. Children from all the schools with our local community were present and an afternoon of different gymnastic activities were enjoyed by everyone.
Our learning values of collaboration, relationships and risk taking were clearly evident all afternoon and our children were a credit to the school.
It was also great to see some familiar faces to Hazeldown School in Max Wheeler and Luke Belfield, who left us last year to join Year 7 at TCS. We were very lucky to have their expertise in guiding us through activities and to see them now representing their school as sporting ambassadors.
