E-Safety Experts

Year 5&6 have spent the last few weeks in groups working collaboratively to make presentations on Google Slides to support other children to be safe online. They presented their work to the rest of their class and two were picked to share with the rest of the school in assembly. Today, the winning presentations were shown to Key Stage 2 children at Willowcroft School to help them to stay safe too. We are very proud of the children for their professional presentations. 

Brass Band Awards

Cholsey School Brass Band have worked so hard this year. In assembly today they delighted us with a selection of their best pieces.
A particular well done to Toby, Tabitha and Arthur who picked up some awards and a huge thank you to Miss Atkins for her continuing support.

Year 3&4 Camp

So far the camp has been fun packed. Huge amounts of hotdogs and pizza have been consumed and the last 2 hours have been spent den building, round the campfire, playing Kick Rounders and Capture the Flag - if that doesn't make them sleep, nothing will!!
Hot chocolate is being prepared as I write this. Everyone is having a great time.

Global Learning Updates

On Wednesday 23 May I was accompanied by eight KS2 children on a visit to Blewbury School. We took part in a global learning event based on the UN Millennium goal of providing safe water for everyone by 2030 to which eight local schools had been invited to attend. The children watched a few videos on how children in other parts of the world have to carry water for several miles in order to wash, cook and drink. Then they took part in three workshops to develop their thoughts and ideas. These workshops were led by an African dancer, an African story teller and an African drummer. Throughout the day each school had worked on a performance based on a story of a village running out of water and what they could do to overcome this problem. These performances were shared at the end of the day.
All the children were well behaved and were great ambassadors for Cholsey School. They all had a good time. Unfortunately, due to the timing of the event and the busy diary in school at this time of year, we have not been able to share our performance with the rest of the school.

Knowing Me Knowing You
Sadly our project with our partner school in Jordan has run into difficulties. There has been a problem in sharing our work and communicating due to the fact that Jordan’s ICT infrastructure is very much under developed. What we have been able to share has been uploaded onto a Padlett and a link to this is shown at the end of this blog. Please take a look. I hope that you find it interesting.
We are hoping to resolve our communication difficulties over the summer. If we manage this, we hope to conclude our project next year. Watch this space.
