As a way of looking forward in our use of the school blog and social media pages (facebook and twitter,) we are looking for parents to complete a quick survey below.
We have now been using blogging as a tool to share and showcase children’s work for two years. We have also linked the blogs to our school twitter account and facebook page to try and engage a worldwide audience but also inform parents about what is happening in their child’s classroom. We would really appreciate if you could take a minute to let us know how you feel about our school’s use of social media.
Today we had lots of fun using the iMovie trailers feature. Using some of our favourite films we decided to create alternative versions in a completely different genre! Here are some of our efforts- do you think our films look better than the originals?

In the distance menacing clouds appeared with no warning. Boats were being hauled towards the shore. People gathered their belongings while the lifeguard called to move out of the area. The gloomy clouds were getting closer and closer. Waves got bigger and bigger and the sea turned into a dark blue which was once an emerald colour. As if he sight of the dark, cold water was not enough, the sea shore was now covered in a vast black blanket of mist.
The terrors came fast, one upon another. Rain poured from the heavens above. Thunder rumbled and lightning crashed. The whistling of the wind sent the animals to their hiding places.Still the rain poured. Howling and crashing is all that could be heard and the smell of seaweed devoured the town. Tumbling breakers crashed into the rocks and left a icy mist as it was dragged back into the sea. A mast of churning foam rose high in a arch high above a boat and threatened to bury in in a watery grave.
Spray from the waves looked like a bleeding mist in the rec light of the setting sun as the clouds blew away. the mess on the shore was all that was left, the sea was back to its emerald colour and the sunset was beautiful as the night fell.
A long ago, in Olympus a child was born daughter of Athena goddess of wisdom she was called Andromeda blessed by hucules she got many gifts one a Pegasus called pinia and the best of all a necklass of wishes . 13 years later the necklaces was stolen by the mean and horrid Hercules brother the kind of evil would use it to destroy Olympus and rule the world. She sent her daughter Andromeda to retrieve the magic necklace.

After that night, we carried on our journey when something amazing drifted into our cave!Was it a bird?Was it a plane?It was an iceberg!I called my friends to help me tip it, and obviously they did.Oh it was so much fun!It kept away those pesky angler fish because they aren’t used to climate change.We set off again.
We saw amazing sights, for instance, a dolphin hunting, a squid squirting out ink and a tiger shark.An Apache helicopter was flying above us, going to Syria.Ages ago we were children in threat by Sea-World, Orlando, but now we’re free to roam north to south!300 miles cleared that day!We found fish that were EDIBLE (mmmmmmmmmm, yummy fish)and we had got to Antartica!There were humans there, but these ones cuddled us and gave us treats without us doing tricks!This was the life…
We left the cave, still on our quest for the epic food.Happily we set off on our five-hundred mile journey.With my calculations we would get there in five days, or if we were lucky, four.”Seven thousand orcas escaped, seven thousand orcas.Capture one, don’t feed it, six-thousand nine-hundred and ninety-nine orcas escaped…”we sang.”Five days to go, five days to go, now four and twenty-three hours to go!”we continued.
We found a cave to sleep in for the night after our two-hundred mile journey:a large one at that, aswell.If we carry on at this rate we would get to our destination in three more days.We prepared for the busy night ahead with our mosquito-free cave.”Wait, where’s Marcus?”I explained…”Uh oh.I think we left him outside.Marcus!”Marcus rushed into the cave before our very eyes.We tried to get to sleep and we dreamed about lovely icebergs.
This week, our school have been focusing on ways to stay safe online. Today Year 5 learned a valuable lesson in speaking to strangers online. Below is a chat stream of Year 5 children talking to what they believed was a 10 year old girl from America called Madison. They were shocked and surprised to realise it was actually a member of staff pretending to be someone else. We discussed how speaking to others online can be dangerous and we need to be careful about what information we share. A really interesting and effective way to show some of the dangers online.
