Safer Internet Day – Year 2

Today we have discussed being safe on the Internet. The children all spoke about the positive experiences they had when online; “I like playing games”, “I really enjoy finding out facts, especially about history”. We then discussed the dangers of being online and what could happen if we didn’t use it safely. Many of the children were surprised that people sometimes pretend to be someone they’re not and are more aware of stranger danger on the Internet. To show how easily this is done we all made an emoji face and pretended to be someone else whilst doing everyday activities. As a result of this activity the children all decided that they should never talk to strangers or give out personal information. They also know exactly what to do if they come across something that upsets or worries them.

Reminder for Friday 17 November 

All children are invited to come to school tomorrow in their Pyjamas, as part of Children In Need. Year 2 children, will also need to ensure they have a warm coat and wellies, as we are making kites in the morning and then flying them outside in the afternoon.

Up close and personal

Today Year Two got up close and personal with some amazing animals: a meerkat, giant land snail, snake, armadillo, frog and a chameleon. Although many of the children were apprehensive to begin with, they all overcome their fears and either held or stroked the animals. The children even posed as trees so the chameleon could climb up them!

Future Firefighters

Year 2 were lucky enough to have a visit from Tweedale fire service. They talked to us about the importance of fire safety. They also allowed us to sit inside the fire engine – the children loved pretending to be real firefighters. It was lovely to hear so many of the children talking with their friends about how they now want to be firefighters when they’re older – what a lovely aspiration!
