E-safety with the Community Police

When the police came in they covered e-safety perfectly.  They told us what we can access and what we can’t.  We understood everything that they said. P.C. Wilkinson told us about bullying and what you should do when you are getting bullied.  He gave us good advice and tips.  Whatever you do online it will always leave a cyber footprint.


Last week, the police visited Year Six to do an e-safety talk.  They went through how to keep safe online and what to do if you aren’t safe.  They told us which websites, apps and games are safe to use and gave us real life situations to solve.  The police explained the dangers of the internet and the bits most of us can’t live without.  They made it really fun and we all enjoyed it.


Music Outreach Concert – 14 March 2018

Year 4 were very lucky to be chosen to take part in the Music Outreach Concert at Durham Cathedral last week.
At the Cathedral we had lots of fun but we also found it quite creepy because of the big door, dark halls and many graves. We visited the Cathedral to sing with many other schools and the choristers, it was lots of fun. The hole day was exciting and we even had a fun lunchtime.
There were many historic things to see, we even saw a stone carving of Queen Elizabeth’s arms however we were not allowed to touch. There was also a large table i the main room which again we were not allowed to touch.

When we went to the Cathedral we saw many strange things like; stain glass windows and different flags from different countries it was amazing. However the best thing was singing, it was really fun. We sang with many different schools and we sounded beautiful. We were even allowed in places most visitors couldn’t enter it was as if we were V.I.P’s, I loved it!
