Say No To Bullying

Filed under: People in School,School — headcharlestown @ 1:37 pm

We started our new SEAL theme this week with an assembly all about bullying. Children in each class are busy learning about bullying this half term; what it is, how we can spot it and what to do if you think that somebody is being bullied. All the teachers have discussed it at the staff meeting and Mrs Jones is reviewing our policies. If you are being bullied you must let us know and we will be able to stop it. Mrs Jones has a drop in every lunch time for children who might be worried or concerned about anything that is happening at school or at home. If you are worried that you or someone you know is being bullied why not drop in to Mrs Jones and have a chat. If we all work together we can ‘Say No To Bullying.’

Hi everyone,

I’m posting a link to a site which I hope you find interesting and fun. It’s all about great books and it’s aimed at YOU!! Take a look…

You can look up a book of your choice and download an extract to see if you like it, look at ‘author of the month’ (choose the age group), and see what the ‘top ten’ books are for your age.

Over the last year our Clustermap has been growing steadily as more and more people from all over the world come to have a look at what we’re up to here at Charlestown.   In a couple of weeks our map will start all  over again.  I though that we should have a record of it here just to remind ourselves how fantastic our blogging adventure has been so far!  Click on the map to see it in more detail.

In Year Five yeasterday we started our unit on making Dance music using DFance E-jay.

We learned how to sort and select samples and began to put them into our own tracks.   It was great fun.   Hopefully soon we’ll have some music to play online and maybe even an album to release!


Slightly randomly here’s a video of Year 5 taking up their models at the end of our D+T week last term.   I forgot to post it then – sorry everyone!
