Finding the right information on the web can be more difficult than it looks. Year 4 have been learning how to searching safely using ‘Kiddle’.
Kiddle is a kid safe visual search engine. It returns results for each query with safe sites and pages written specifically for kids, handpicked and checked by Kiddle editors. Kiddle also has a safe image and video search, as well as an online encyclopedia - Kpedia.
Year 4 are searching information connected to their topic ‘water’. For example today they search for information and videos about glaciers and the water cycle. They understand the dangers you may come across on a web-page, even ones written for children. Pupils can recognise and avoid clicking advertisements, social media and email links.
Why not take a look at Kiddle yourself and encourage any junior digital researchers you know, to use Kiddle to search the web safely.
Year 3 are learning how to use a computer to search for information.Read More

Today was the first day of our ‘Supervised Tooth Brushing scheme’. All the children were excited to try out their new tooth brushes and most really enjoyed the mild mint fluoride toothpaste. We hope this scheme will support parents when brushing teeth at home and reduce the need for invasive action for tooth decay.
Top tips include:
Brush teeth twice a day, most importantly before bed.
Spit out toothpaste, don’t rinse.
Visit a dentist regularly.
Limit sugar in diet. Eat sugar as part of meals only.
We hope this will help our children have many years of clean teeth and healthy smiles!
What a welcome sight for the start of term! Our sunflowers grew really well over the summer holiday and are now flowering beautifully. Our pumpkins have also grown well and we are looking forward to harvesting them later this term - we hope to make Autumn lanterns and delicious pumpkin soup.
The grass enjoyed the summer sunshine and rain too and we have been busy clearing the cuttings to fill our compost bin! Our winter vegetables have already been sown and we will be planting Christmas-ready potatoes in the next few weeks. It's always busy in the garden!
We have worked really hard this year to develop our physical skills.Read More
What a great event - thank you parents for coming along to support us. We have worked really hard this year to develop our physical skills (Agility, Balance, Coordination) and we put these skills to the test during our events. We used our strong hands and wrists for 'crawling' and holding tennis rackets. We also improved our sprinting speed by using the 'hips to lips' technique, concentrated hard to balance the tennis ball and our skipping was excellent!
What a super evening raising over £1800 in total - a record!Read More
